“Great hospitality in an idyllic location.”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

This holiday accommodation is a real gem in the beautiful town of Positano in southern Italy. We booked a room on a Bed and Breakfast basis but were upgraded to their best apartment at no extra charge. The balcony was huge with jaw-dropping views down to the sea and up the cliff to the road which winds around the coast. Vines provided shade and the outdoor furniture was comfortable and good quality (a rare thing with holiday accommodation). Kitchen was well equipped and spacious as was the bathroom and bedroom/living room. The proprietor and her father serve the breakfast in another room with beautiful views and an open balcony. She was friendly and helpful and brought fruit juice and water to us when we arrived after negotiating the hundreds of steps which are unavoidable in this lovely town, but a local bus is an easier way to get around and there is a stop nearby.

Room Tip: All rooms have good views but book well ahead

Villa celentano is a lovely set of apartments with kitchenettes, spacious room, ensure and a beautiful view from your own private balcony. Maria and her father look after you from the get go, and are very polite and lovely. Her father knows limited english but can still communicate the basics, where Maria speaks great English and can help you with anything, and they definitely go out of their way for you. There is a carpark linked with the hotel, and is about 5 mins walk to a lovely beach. The tourist beach is about 25mins, but not as nice and the restaurants down there werent very good. The breakfast is a little limited, but consists of fresh figs and grapes from the garden, cereal, bread rolls, croissant and cakes and esspresso coffee. Very good compared to some of the breakfasts in Europe. I'd definitely rate this hotel, you wont be disappointed!

Booked last minute in Positano without knowing much about it. On arrival found out that Villa Celentano is nicely situated at the top of town near some good restaurants and only about 500 (!!!) steps to the nicest beach (Fornillo). Fairly basic but clean and spacious with a great terrace and probably one of the cheapest properties available in this pretty but expensive town. Breakfast available but don't expect a feast - nice owner Maria did give us fresh fruit from the garden though. It is above Parking Anna (18 euros a day) and really close to the bustop. Suggest unless you are very used to driving in Italy you don't bother with a car - didn't see a car without a dent and the roads are pretty hairy.

Room Tip: Loer rooms have nice terraces - particularly the end one
