Looks an ideal low key authentic B&B with a view, but despite paying a deposit and several emails confirming our stay, the owner hadn't made our booking! So on the day of our departure for Italy, I had a mad rush to find a new available B&B in the area in peak season. What a nightmare! Furthermore, he was rude... More

My husband and I stayed at Colle dell'ara for the final few days of our honeymoon and really enjoyed our time there. Although we had a car, I truly recommend you make arrangements to be picked up or take the bus. Driving in Positano and Montepertuso (where the hotel is located) is not worth the hassle and we left our... More

My husband and I just stayed here in July and it was amazing. The owners are so nice and welcoming. The place is located above Positano in Monteperruso--we got to the beach by walking down, which took us about 50 mins and was enjoyable. We got back by taking the bus, which was easy. The place has amazing views of... More

If I could give this place 6 stars I would. Pasquale and Giacomo are amazing hosts, you really feel like you are being welcomed into their home. The property is stunning, with an amazing view of Positano and the coastline, and endless terraced gardens. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and there is nothing better than waking up to a...

As part of a trip in Italy, we stayed at the Colle dell'Ara with my partner. Although we had a car, getting there was a challenge and kept us turning around for slitghly more than 1 hour, giving phone calls to the hotel chaps and asking random people along the road where to park our car and such. Indeed, the... More

We spent two weeks in Italy and decided to end our trip on the coast in the quaint town of Positano. Giacomo emailed back and forth, providing us with directions and information before we arrived. Once arriving in Positano, we hopped on the public bus and made our way to the hotel. We had no idea where we were going,... More

We stayed at the Colle dell'Ara at the beginning of June for 4 nights with a group of friends. From arrival to departure we could not have asked for more. Excellent, well appointed rooms with the most amazing views, brilliant choices for breakfast and the most friendly and accommodating owners who were keen to advise and help with places to... More

After a wonderful stay last year, we returned to Colle dell'Ara with a group of friends for a four nights stay and once again, it was a wonderful experience! Giacomo and his family made us feel very welcome, starting with offering us a delicious lunch as we arrived too late to eat in one of the neighbouring restaurants. That first... More

We visited Colle dell'ara after a very hectic time in sorrento.....I could've stayed 2 weeks easily. It's peaceful atmosphere & priceless views were just what the doctor ordered! The location- out of this world. Just walking through the beautiful path to the hotel is a memory- so beautiful! We stayed on the top floor, which we loved- although you do... More

I stayed at Colle dell'Ara for three nights in May and loved the entire experience! The location was definitely off-the-beaten-path, but that is what makes this place so special. We feel like we got to experience Positano in a much more authentic way because we weren't staying in the tourist mess closer to the harbor. The food at Colle dell'Ara... More
