I could not book far in advance and they are usually sold out but, I was very glad two days opened up for me. I needed a place that was peaceful yet beautiful to get some creative work done. Colle delll'ara hit the spot! The view as amazing, the common room open and airy, the decor well appointed/modern and minimalist(which is a hard thing to find in bnb's), and internet access was fast and reliable. I loved the path up to the house, a good adventure with stunning views to the natural beauty all around. The house is high up the hill so if one loves nature trails with spectacular vista's it is right outside the door. The breakfast was superb with regional sweet italian pastries and fresh breads, ham, tasty fruit juices, simple yogurt and fruit from the the colle dell'ara garden to name but a few of my favorites. It is also easy walking distance down the hill to excellent restaurants for dinner. In addition, the home-made colle dell'ara liqueurs should not be missed. My hosts were Pasquale and Marco, two of the three brothers who own the place. Their service was impeccable. They had many stories about the area, great suggestions for dinner and late night cocktails/dancing and I am sure anything else you would need. The atmosphere was very special. It was cool when all the guests sat around one evening cheering the Eurocup final...it felt like family! I hope I will make my way back to colle dell'ara for a longer stay next time. I think it is an excellent base from which to explore the amalfi coast and have a truly authentic positano experience.
