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...

All rooms feature a magnificent sea view and there are several terraces. Luciana and her family are excellent hosts, make a nice breakfast and are very... More

My wife and I are very adventuresome .We have a rental business in Alaska and one of our customers guided us to Villa Sofia. It was by far the best overall experience we have ever had. This is strictly a family run operation on the cliffs in the Amalfi coast area of Italy. Though there is now a narrow road... More

Villa Sofia is a secret tip in the hills above Positano. The gorgeous view and the inviting host is always and again worth the travel. Having occasionally discovered the B&B 2006, I have returned and I am looking forward to the next stay!

My fiance and I stayed at Villa Sofia for 4 nights in September. We have been travelling for 2 months across Europe and this Villa was by far the best accommodation we have had.
