This 3-room B&B is owned by the Milo family, one of whom, Silvio, showed us to our room, briefly introduced himself and oriented us to the scene. Our large, airy room was in town but quiet. Breakfast, including warm, freshly made croissants (“cornetti”), was served on our room’s balcony looking out towards the sea. Grandfather had refurbished the former mayor’s house in the 1950’s to start this B&B. Our room’s colorful tile flooring evidenced his lively good taste Positano brims with great restaurants, but we constantly ate at the Saraceno d’Oro on the ground floor under the B&B during our week’s sojourn. Its first-class fare and custom-tailored service extended to unbidden but suddenly appearing Prosecco or Limoncello. A well-travelled family down the hall said that nowhere, not in Seattle, Capetown or Paris, had they ever experienced a stay of such quality and authenticity. Falling rocks had made busses from Sorrento unavailable, but on our arrival Silvio was annoyed that we had taxied there rather than called him to pick us up. His mother personally drove us right to the train station at the end of our stay.
Positano spreads itself in vast vistas as it rises up the mountains from the sea. It seems populated by unusually sweet people. One old lady, huffing and puffing her way up a hill stopped to regale us with stories about changes she’s seen from horses to cars while she disarmingly complained about tourists and “too many Americans.” A Samoan immigrant construction showed his little two-story house and its climbing red flowers. Shops carry high-quality apparel, and art including ceramics worth seeing at Emporio Ceramico on via Cristofero Columbo 11.
