WE stayed for 4 nights in Nocelle at the Colle Dell Arra B&B. The views were amazing as was the service provided by our host Pasquale. The climb up is 129 steps and the luggage goes up on a lift so it is not a typical luxury hotel. The rooms are spacious with a view of the terrace and the... More

We stayed at Colle dell'Ara for 3 nights. It is such a special spot. Although you are a 20 minute bus trip out of Positano we liked being away from the crowds (and the bus trip was a real experience!). It's in the perfect location to start the Path of the Gods which was a real highlight of our trip.... More

Our two night stay was amazing. Everyone who works there is so beautiful and friendly. It's as if you're staying with friends. The rooms were contemporary, earthy and comfortable- with amazing balcony views. Breakfast is unlike any breakfast you get at hotels or breakfast. It's homemade and delicious with a big selection. The property itself is luscious, you see Positano... More

The rooms are excellent and clean and everything works perfectly. We were welcomed with a well deserved glass of water and all the recommendations and advice needed for a perfect stay. We chose to take the advice of the brothers and weren't disappointed. We ate one evening at the b & b and the food was amazing, fresh and all... More

After a lot of researching And thinking about where would be the best place to stay on the Amalfi coast I picked Colle del Ara. And we couldn't have been happier, the b&b is nice and quiet, spacious rooms and the view from the balcony is just stunning. The hosts will do everything they can to give you information, advice...

This charming B&B was situated high up on the mountain with breathtaking views of the city and the sea from the room as well as from the breakfast terrace. Beautiful vines and flowers enveloped the terrace, with lush gardens just below. Pasquale is an amazing host, making all his guests feel comfortable and welcome. He was full of information and...

Staying at Colle dell'ara was so lovely! Not only was our view beautiful, but our hosts were fantastic! The owners were there to greet us and answer any questions we had.

We spent 4 days in May 2016. Amazing views, very friendly hosts and great food cooked by the owners. Really recommend the gastro experience!!! All local products, very interesting introduction for each plate with good wine from the Vesuvio. Lovely evening with very friendly people.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Colle dell'ara is not a hotel. Staying with us, in our home, means treating yourself to a rare experience. We are in Positano, in the small village of Montepertuso, located just above this corner of paradise on the Amalfi Coast. The building is situated on top of the hill and can be reached on foot in 5-6 minutes through an ancient path, fully illuminated at night. We are Pasquale and Giacomo, who with the help of our father Michele, a few years ago we decided to undertake this activity which constantly is giving us the opportunity to convey to our guests our main passions for hospitality and good food. These passions, well-established in our coastal land and agriculture, allowing us to constantly reinvent the offer to our guests dedicated, basing it on availability and seasonality values. We host you in rooms equipped with private bathroom and balcony overlooking the sea of Positano between the islands of Capri and Li Galli. Each room has a large double bed (with the possibility of adding a single bed), and are equipped with linens, towels and toiletries. Free wi-fi connection is working in all our spaces. We provide you with keys for your independent access at every time. Upon your arrival you will find free parking slots along the road and we'll help you carry your luggage with a special pulling system. We will assist you from beginning, accompanying you throughout whole of your stay suggesting you the best local amenities including activities from ourselves offered. You will have here the opportunity to experience our land through different activities such us farming excursions and local cooking classes (events organized on reservation). We always include breakfast, different every day and based on availability of our gardens, or made by the breads and cakes that we daily prepare. The center of Positano is reachable by bus in 20 minutes or 35-40 minutes through a centuries-long staircase. For trekking lovers, our structure is directly related to the main paths of Monti Lattari and the most famous Walkpath of God. However, we are located at the center of several important location like Pompei, Capri, Amalfi, Ravello and Sorrento, reachable by ferry, bus or car. Nearby you will find shops and restaurants. ... more   less
