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

Pasquale and his father are simply the perfect hosts! From the moment we arrived at Colle dell'Ara, everything was perfect: from the personal welcome from Pasquale who met us at the start of the enchanting forest walk to reach the b&b, the quaint and efficient pulley system transporting our luggage, to the stunning views and pristine accommodation. As first impressions... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for only 2 nights. We wished we had more time here. Our host set up a reliable driver from naples to the bnb. The driver was wonderful. Gave us lots of interesting facts about the places were driving by and even pulled over at great picture spots for us to take pictures. The view... More

My son and I are midway thru a six nite stay. It would be hard to top the views from the property. The true gems are the Italian family that runs it. They are passionate about making your stay the very best it could be and their pride in their home place is comforting. Pasquale and his Dad put on... More
