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

You really can't beat the view! We stayed 9 nights at Villa Sofia in september and it was awesome! (29 and 30yo couple) We really liked the place and would go back without hesitation, book the small appartment if available, you won't regret it! Good breakfasts, Lucianna is very helpful and the villa is gorgeous. A few notes tho, yes... More

The view is breathtaking here and the family who runs Villa Sofia is always very friendly and joyful. Your stay here is as if you were in heaven itself! Thank you for your warm hospitality, we enjoyed it! Sophie en Kelly, Belgium

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. We absolutely loved everything about Villa Sofia... the view for starters, it makes you smile every morning as you eat your lovely breakfast, which has been... More

This place had no privacy, you could hear a pin drop in the room next door. So I had to hear every word of the conversation, music etc of the people I'm the room next door (sorry Australian couple moving to London I know your whole life sorry). In addition, there was no privacy because they watch your every move.... More

Villa Sofia is simply a piece of paradise: fantastic views and service! The house is built in the mountain on a few levels and is surrounded by forest. Very peaceful, both during the day and night. Easy access the centre of Positano as well as other towns on the Amalfi coast. The lovely Arienzo beach is also easily accessible from... More

The view is as good as everyone says it is but the other wonderful aspect of Villa Sofia is the peacefulness. It's a dramatic contrast to the busy "touristy" feel of Positano. There are local restaurants within walking distance and the beginning of the Path of the Gods famous walk along the cliffs is within a few minutes walking distance.... More

When I first arrived I thought, why aren't I here for longer, this place has jawdropping gorgeous views, I would have given Villa Sofia a higher rating but on day two of my stay, the girl nextdoor to me had a male friend over for lunch outside her room. This created quite a stir between Lucianna and her mother, Sofia.... More

Thanks for a nice stay. We can really recommend this B&B especially because of it's special location high above the shores of Positano. The hospitality of the family is amazing - a truly great place !!
