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

We stayed here on recommendation from friends and we were so happy we chose to stay at Colle dell'ara. Pasquale and his family have an amazing place here above Positano. The views are magic. We arrived by ferry from Salerno, which was a great way to see the Amalfi coastline. So beautiful. Upon arrival into the Positano marina area the... More

(wife) Incredible, highlight of my stay. The vibe and atmosphere, the view from the balcony, the mist rolling into the bedroom, the walk down to the square inbetween the houses, the amazing cuppucino and breakfast each morning, Pasquale is a fantastic and helpful host with a great sense of humour. Comfortable, spacious room. Will definitely go back. (husband) very relaxing,... More

Colle dell'ara Is a magical place. My husband and I arrived just in time for dinner, on the first night of our honeymoon. From the moment we arrived, Pasquale and the family at Colle dell'ara took care of us as if we were friends visiting their home. He helped us with transportation, our itinerary, dinner reservations, and wonderful meals from... More

Colle dell'ara is a hidden place in Montepertuso village above Positano. The view is stunning and Pasquale and his family wonderful hosts. Located close to the start of the sentiero degli dei, the most famous walk along the cliffs of the Amalfi coast. Simply perfect.

One of the most amazing places I have ever stayed in with the most incredible views. Its quite a way up the mountain but everything from the hospitality of the staff to the incredible view from our room was unfortgettable. Will definitely go back one day.
