We had a wonderful stay at this B&B! The staff was extremely attentive and made our stay in Positano a most enjoyable family trip. From the very start they made sure we were comfortable and took the time to explain how to navigate our way around this unique vertical city tucked into the mountain. Besides all of the excellent recommendations... More

My husband and I LOVED our stay at Colle Dell'ara. While the drive up the hill is treacherous, and the walk up to the B&B is steep and certainly not for children or older guests who have trouble getting around, it is well worth the effort. When we arrived we were exhausted from travel, but we were welcomed by our... More

We wanted a place away from the center of the city and this B&B was perfect! The views and service was wonderful. The breakfast buffet in the morning was exceptional, included meats, cheeses, bruscetta etc (not just limited to croissants)! We are both in our 20's and taking the 1700 steps down to the city and beach was not a... More

Wow, what a fantastic surprise. Booked this through AirBnB and was not sure what to expect. It is a 30 minute train ride up into the mountains and you do have to "hike" up quite a few stairs through the woods, but the view is amazing! Everything about our stay was amazing, 5 stars does not do it. Pasquale greeted... More

My husband and I spent a few days of our honeymoon at Colle dell'ara in Positano. Our only regret was spending only two nights there. Giacomo and his family were extremely nice and welcoming. The were also very helpful in recommending things to do, where to eat, and how to get to places around the town. The room we stayed... More

This is a tough review to write as I don't want to have to say anything negative but it would be remiss of me not to mention the steps back up to the property. After 5 nights they can become something of a burden. Yes they are lit & when you're walking them & the owls are hooting it's magical... More

Loved the fact that this B&B was not directly in Positano but high in the hills with amazing views. Warm and friendly family run business and close to the Path of the Gods. Walking to Positano is definitely worth the many many steps down but it's always nice to end the day away from the crowds and soak in the... More

My fiance and I stayed here for 3 nights in May and absolutely loved it. The b&b is beautiful and welcoming and Giacomo and his dad were wonderful hosts. The room was comfortable and the views of Positano down below were stunning. The breakfast each morning was delicious and the dinners Giacomo and his dad make every other night are... More

We spent 10 days of our honeymoon at Colle dell'ara and were delighted with our choice. Perched on the hillside above Positano, the views were stunning and the food fantastic. What made our stay really special was the warmth of the hosts. Pasquale, Marco and Giacomo made us feel incredibly welcome and were always willing to answer questions, make recommendations... More
