We found the family that runs Colle dell'Ara to be one of the most welcoming hosts anywhere in Italy, and the food they provide, all sourced form their own gardens, is absolutely charming and delicious. We drove here which was a good thing as it looked like public transport was quite a mission. There was easy parking only 100m from their steps (note their steps are not near their door bell on the cliff... a trap for the uninitiated). Being the highest building in Positano the views are fairly well unparalleled, but there is a tradeoff in how long it takes to walk into town (and walking back up is only for the very fit, but the boys will happily sort you out for a very well priced taxi). The rooms are simple but perfectly adequate. Overall, loved this place :)
