Residence La Tavolozza

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 6, 2013

My mother and I stayed at La Tavolozza for three days last week and couldn't believe our luck in finding this place (thanks to Rick Steves!). A fantastic value for the huge, clean rooms and beautiful views. Francesca and her mother helped us with advice for walks, restaurants, ferries...their warm welcome made us feel totally at home. It's a short walk to all the local bus lines or down to the ferries, as well as to the center of Positano.

We stayed two nights at La Tavolozza with my wife and myself on a Friday and Saturday night and wish it was more. We had a two week trip to Italy and Greece and this was the biggest room we had the entire trip. The location can not be beat as it is a close walk to the beach at the bottom in about 5 to 10 minutes. Our room had a beautiful view of Positano that was perfect.

The price could not be beat and the family that took care of us at La Tavolozza was soo helpful and nice. We loved our time here and had nothing to complain about.

The bathtub was also nice after a week of travel already!

This is an exceptional, family run residence with amazing views. We had considered staying in a few places which were higher up the hill in Positano, but when we got there we were so pleased with our choice. La Tavolozza is right in the heart of Positano and so close to everything. I knew that Positano was steep, and there would be a lot of climbing of steps etc.because we weren't planning to hire a car. I am extremely fit, so wasn't concerned about this at all. However, when I saw just how high up some of the hotels and b & bs are, I was surprised. I was always thankful that we didn't have a mountain to climb after dinner in town!

Getting to La Tavolozza was very easy when taking the Sita bus from Sorrento, you just get off at the La Sponda bus stop and have a short walk downhill from there. Francesca and her Mama were very welcoming and they were really helpful with directions and information about bus times etc. I thought that this was a brilliant place to stay, we delighted in opening the windows to our balcony and sitting there looking out over Positano and the sea. La Tavalozza is extremely good value, and run by genuine people who work very hard to make sure your stay will be perfect.

We were greeted warmly by Francesca and her family members upon arrival.This close- knit family takes great pride in their residence, as reflected in its cleanliness, attention to detail and their professionalism. Our room was so comfortable with glorious views( next door is the Sirenuse hotel with the exact same views!) The residence is in an excellent location and you can walk to the center and to the beach within a few short minutes. There is a real advantage to being able to walk everywhere AND having a peaceful, quiet room to return to at the end of the day! This was our second trip to Positano and we would most definitely stay here again. I highly recommend La Tavolozza and suggest you book early enough..and I need to say once more that Francesca and her family are really very special people and a pleasure to deal with!

Room Tip: I think all of the rooms would be equally as comfortable and clean!

Smack bang in the middle of Positano proper! Large rooms with balcony and magnificent 180 degree views across the church, bay, up the hill and to the other side of Positano. We stayed in the Red room. Each room has separate ensuite, air conditioning, bar fridge, ample room sizes, high ceilings, precision balcony doors that shut out light (and most noise) for a good night's sleep!...everything within walking distance. Web site pictures etc. are accurate. Family business, extremely helpful, knowledgable...highly recommended. We'd stay here again!

Room Tip: Red, Yellow and Blue rooms have excellent balconies.

Recommended by a friend and didn't disappoint. Lovely friendly people that made us feel so welcome. Perfect location in the heart of town and a stunning view of the dome and the ocean. There were 4 of us in an apartment, so much space and traditional look. Great value too as positano is pretty expensive. Would definitely stay here again when we come back.
