This hotel has to be one of the best places to stay in Positano! From the view to the staff to the pool, everything is exceptional. We had a difficult time finding the hotel because we didn't have GPS. I would suggest getting good directions from the SITA Bus Stop before getting there if you don't have electronic navigation.

After a long and tiring flight, our family of 13 enjoyed pizza in Naples (the birthplace of pizza), and toured Pompeii. Our long day in Italy began early after arriving from Houston, so we were looking forward to the Villa dei Fisici for some much needed rest! We were greeted instantly by Franco, the manager of the property, our bags... More

Beautiful view, walking out on the terrace it almost feels like walking into a art work! We were very tired from our Trip, and our amazing host Franco, looked after us so well we felt like we were at home! Every morning he would prepare our breakfast, always with so many different things and so yummy!!! I have some food... More

My husband and I decided to splurge on this hotel because we heard everything was expensive in Positano. When we arrived we were not aware we would have to walk up a gigantic hill (no cars can access this hill) to get there, with that said the staff had sent someone down to grab our luggage which made the walk...

We got two rooms for 3 nights and the total price was $2,300... a bit expensive for an old hotel. The place needs to be renovated. The view is great and the location was beautiful. Unfortunately you do need to walk up an enormous hill in order to get to this place. It is not easy to get to!!! Pool... More

What a view! You can't help but walk outside as much as possible when you are in this house! We had a group and rented out the whole house.

We have rented the whole villa for our wedding celebration for a couple of days in September 2013. The Villa is really gorgeous and big. Open terrace is very nice and with great view to Positano! Steps to the beach and back are quite difficult, so I do not recommend the villa for aged persons. Especially thanks going to Fabio... More
