We stayed 3 nights in mid-october at Venus B&b and loved every minute. The room and beds were very comfortable and the view was breathtaking. We also enjoyed our breakfast- warm croissants, pastries, fruits, jellies and cappuccino coffee. But the best was our host Gippy. He picked us up in Sorrento due to personal problems. We so appreciated this. He... More

Well I picked this place based on other Tripadvisor reviews. Guess what? They were right! This is a real gem of a place. My wife, my sister in law and I are so grateful we stayed here and met G.P., "Gippy" to other reviewers. Now Positano is an unusual place if you've never been there. Getting around is unique and...

Positano is such a beautiful city and this charming B&B made our stay unforgettable. The owner Gippy was such an amazingly friendly host which made our stay even more enjoyable. He gives great advice and... More

We just returned from three days at the Venue B&B. We chose to stay there because of all the positive Trip Advisor reviews. They are all true. Gippy is the owner and a wonderful host. He does really care about his guests and puts a lot of effort into providing whatever help they need to enjoy this beautiful place. The... More

We stayed 4 nights here in Positano and had a wonderful time. This bed and breakfast is located on the smaller beach in Positano, which is a five minute walk from the main beach. The smaller beach is quieter with less boats and tourists and has a couple of delicious restaurants. It is next to a small cove where you... More

First of all, Gippy is a perfect host. He really takes care of his guests. Gippy picked us up at the parking (in Positano you can only park at dedicated parking for about 20 eur per day). The b&b is located about 400 steps above Fornillo Beach (for sure the nicer beach of the two Positano has). 400 steps is... More

Very easy to get to and on the local Positano bus line. Gippy was an absolute pleasure and made sure we had all the information we needed each morning. Set on the side of town, B&B Venus had gorgeous views of the water. Breakfast was served every morning with made-to-order cappuccinos and espressos. Gippy gave us plenty of recommendations for...

If this was I another location I would probably give it a 3 as it is a pretty basic accommodation for the price. Don't get me wrong, everything was fine, clean and working. The location is good, and the host (Gippy) was excellent. But, it is very basic. If you are able to go along with basic and just accept... More

Cannot say enough about how brilliant Gippy is as a host. He spends time with every guest every morning advising on what to do in Positano and neighbouring Amalfi towns. Nothing is ever too much to ask of him. He is so helpful and very friendly. Rooms are clean with an amazing view from the balcony of Positano. Would recommend... More

Good location, just near the Grotto en route into Positano. Rooms are of a good size with a balcony and patio with the most amazing views. Gippy was extremely welcoming, incredibly hospitable, and so helpful in advising and assisting us in arranging excusions to make the most of our short stay. He spoke excellent English along with other languages and... More
