We stayed in La Quercia in October 2012 for 5 nights. This place was recommended by our friends staying there before.
Location: Tucked away in the mountains above Positano at the end of the road. Access to the Villa is going down 40 steps from the parking, through the village and another 50 steps down to the villa. We met our hostess Carmela at the parking and she bravely carried our luggage down to the house.
Rooms: Spacious, very clean with balcony and GORGEOUS view down to the coast and Positano. Pillows could be softer, to my taste. Room cleaned every day with bed and towels changes every three days.
Hosts: Carmela and Salvatore, very friendly, warm and helpful people, reasonably proficient in English – better than our Italian. Breakfast is plentiful with coffee, pastry, fruits etc
WI-Fi access downstairs win the lobby.
Services: Bus to Positano from parking lot with reliable service – half and hour ride. On the way to the parking there is a local grocery store, where you can buy discounted bus tickets, and pizzeria at the same location. Restaurant Santa Croce –trattoria, run by family with mom in the kitchen and two sons running the service - is absolutely excellent. Best food experience we had in the area, plus great view down to the coast. Easy access to Positano and from there boat services to Capri, Amalfi, Salerno and Sorrento.
We found boats as the main way of travelling around as local buses are not very accurate with schedules and usually quite busy.
There is a walking path – Sentiere degli Dei going through the village and up into the mountains towards Bomerano. Also you can go 1500 steps down to Positano.
In general, we enjoy the stay in La Quercia very much, very happy with the hosts and met some interesting people from all over the world while staying in Nocelle.
Grazie, Carmela e Salvatore!
