We stayed 3 nights at this beautiful place built into a forested, quiet hillside with gorgeous views of Positano and the coast. Our spacious room had a small kitchen, well-stocked, including homemade limoncello, the family's olive oil and honey for a very reasonable purchase. We had our own terrace, as well as use of the larger shared terrace. Breakfast was a real highlight, Anna made delicious cakes and brioche each morning using their lemons, olive oil and honey. She also offered homemade jams and fresh orange juice from their fruit trees . Davide is a wonderful resource, and was able to help us with hiking routes, buses, and restaurants. We hiked the Trail of the Gods 1 day, starting at their property--we've hiked a lot, and this is truly one of the best, not to be missed. The entire property is extremely well cared for, with many thoughtful touches ( they supplied us with a beach bag and towels for example). There are a lot of stairs, but life in Positano involves stairs, and rewards with gorgeous views.
