The villa has the perfect position, right on Sentieri degli Dei hiking path and all the rooms have views of Li Galli islands and Faraglioni. Luciana is a wonderful host, very warm and helpful. She prepares fresh croissants every morning and brings the breakfast on the terrace, always smiling, spreading good energies all around :) To and from Positano there... More

The owners of this magical bed and breakfast are as kind as the views are incredible. I've never had such delightful breakfasts with such an amazing panaroma surrounding me. And at night, drinking their home-made wine on the balcony and watching the moon rise over the mountains, is something my wife and I will never forget. A very special place... More

We found Villa Sofia to be a very homely place to stay, and Luciana an extremely warm and friendly hostess. The B&B is located up the narrow winding road to Nocelle, and set in between the road itself and the coastal path which links Nocelle with nearby towns and villages. Needless to say, perched hundreds of metres up a very... More

We recently returned from a 3-night stay at Villa Sofia in Nocelle. Our neighbors had recommended this B&B to us, having stayed there several times before. Now we know why they kept going back! What an incredible place! We arrived after a long day of traveling from Rome. Sofia greeted us, showed us our beautiful room, and then invited us... More

In early May of 2015, my girlfriend and I spent five nights at Villa Sofia. The Bed and Breakfast provided the perfect location to explore the Amalfi Coast. Located adjacent to Nocelle, Villa Sofia positions its guests to follow the Sentiero dei Dei to Praiano, Bomorano and Amalfi; to descend to Positano and its beaches and swim in the azurre... More

I really enjoyed my time at Villa Sofia. Place has an amazing view of Positano as well as great accommodations and very hospitable hosts. It is somewhat of a hassle to get to since it is above Positano. You can take shuttle buses from Positato which leave approximately every hour or you can drive. Driving there is very serious and...

The have a little cable car for carrying the luggage down a path, very cute! Our room had everything we needed and... More
