Italy is a country of family businesses and Dimora Del Podesta is a perfect example. We were greeted by Silvano the mother when we arrived from Naples and were looked after each morning by Pietro, the son who manages the B&B. Pietro is absolutely lovely and a fantastic host. He served a beautiful breakfast each morning on our balcony with... More

We just returned from a 3 night saty with our two teen daughters (15 and 13). What a fabulous opportunity to meet Pietro and family! We were greeted by his mother upon our arrival, we ate downstairs Saraceno d'Oro and met father and brother, etc. The rooms were clean and spacious... we had a great and plentiful breakfast each morning...

I absolutely love and adore this B&B!!! The family run business feels nothing of a business and more like my 2nd family. The owner Pietro goes above and beyond to make his guests feel welcome and want to return as soon as possible. The rooms are clean, comfortable and have a balcony where breakfast is served overlooking the Mediterranean waters... More

Room is EXCELLENT! clean, cosy, nicely-decorated, stunning view from the balcony. Pietro, the owner, does everything to make you have a pleasant stay. Breakfast was served at the balcony and when i took photos and shared with my friends, they were super jealous. I can't thank Pietro enough. He helped us plan the day so as to make the most... More

We cannot say enough about our stay here!! It was so amazing! The room was beautiful and the view from the balcony was even better. The whole family was so warm and welcoming. Pietro was the perfect host, he was so kind and relaxed. Then to top it all off we had a private breakfast on the balcony overlooking the... More

We recently stayed at the Dimora del Podesta and from the very first greeting we were met with great warmth from the family that own the B&B. The rooms are charming and all have a balcony overlooking the sea. We were in La Musica which was light and airy and far bigger than most hotel rooms. The room was very... More

My 3 children and I spent a week at Dimora del Podesta and it was a highlight of our 5 week trip away. Pietro and Elia were simply amazing hosts and we felt a part of a family there. They were fantastic with the children. I cannot recommend this place enough - and the pizzas and pasta from the restaurant... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in Dimora del Podesta for 11 nights for our anniversary at the end of May. The entire experience was like a dream: a beautiful sea view from our balcony, delicious warm croissants, coffee and bread for breakfast and the b&b owner, Pietro, a friendly and knowledgeable man who helped make our stay perfect. Pietro would... More

We absolutely loved Dimora Del Podesta. It was everything we ever imagined and more! Pietro was a fabulous host, providing whatever you require, along with his knowledge of the area which is priceless. Our room was gorgeous and clean and the balcony with views of Positano perfect for anytime of the day. Pietro's family restaurant underneath the bnb was an... More

After coming from Capri, Positano is a more provincial and unpretentious plac.e. NOw the b and b. It was a different experience coming from a 5 star hotel. The place reminds me of how it feels to live in the 1960's and this is the reason why I enjoyed my stay though others may have a different opinion. The room... More
