To celebrate our fortieth wedding anniversary, our family arranged for us to spend three days at Villa Sofia. It was a wonderful experience. The views from the Villa are stunning and we received a very warm welcome and lots of good advice about where to visit and how to get there by bus and by ferry from Positano. Luciana was...

Villa Sofia is a home away from home I would recommend to anyone wanting to be away from it all but close enough to still experience Positano. Luciana is amazing , so nice and helpful and fun to be around. Clean and safe perfect if traveling alone or with someone.

Villa Sofia is located high above the town of Positano with incredible views. This is a small B&B which requires some effort to reach (public transportation and then stairs to reach the inn) but it has amazing views. The rooms are spacious (we had a small apartment with living room, kitchen, bedroom and bath) and an incredible terrace overlooking the...

This place is just amazing for the stunning view you get at each corner, the tranquility and wonderful owners. Here you can enjoy one of the most spectacular views in the area. Indeed, it is not that easily accessible but it is worth it (difficult with the parking - but this is common all over Amalfi coast, bus to Positano...

I do not have enough good things to say about Villa Sofia! Luciana is pure sunshine. She is always smiling, energetic, and makes you feel like you are an old friend. She and her family are so welcoming, hospitable, and always make themselves available if you have questions or need help getting around. The house is truly a work of...

I can not say enough about this bnb!! Luciana is the most amazing, friendly, kind and outgoing person I have stayed with thus far. The room is spacious, the views are stunning and you are right at the start of the pathway of the gods. Luciana goes above and beyond, for example, we missed our bus and she actually drove...

We loved our stay at Villa Sofia - Luciana, Sofia and family welcomed us and offered wonderful hospitality so much so that it felt like we were staying with friends rather than at a B&B. Nocelle is a village above Positano, perfectly located for the Path of Gods trail, and we loved being away from the tourist mob in Positano...

Very good b&b. We really recommend this place. The location is fantastic (beautiful views) and the service (friendly and helpful) is giving us a very good vacation. Good starting point for hiking. Nocelle is quiet and there is a good restaurant. Please be aware that Villa Sofia is not suitable if you are not able to walk on stairs.
