My husband and I stayed at Casa Cuccaro in August 2012 for 3 nights and wish we had stayed longer. The B&B is beautiful and the hosts are warm and welcoming with wonderful stories of the history of the area. I cannot emphasize enough how magnificent the view is from the room and the balcony where you have breakfast each morning surrounded by blossoming flowers overlooking the blue Med. The hamlet of Nocelle is a step back in time - all pedestrian with grape vines shading the paths. It is small but has two very good restaurants, a favorite being the relaxed pizza place cut into the face of the cliff with views of the lights of Positano twinkling at night.
The Walk of the Gods literally goes past the door of the B&B making it a great base for hiking. Pepe, the host, gave us a map and spent time going over routes with us making helpful suggestions.
Value: absolutely incredible value for money - spacious rooms, spotless, views worth a million dollars.
Location: stunningly gorgeous. Sleepy picturesque town. You get a small bus to and from Positano - we enjoyed it as you get to mix with locals and have great views the whole way. Always punctual and reliable.
Hosts: warm, welcoming, extremely knowledgeable of the local area.
Would we go back -- absolutely yes.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Casa Cuccaro was an ancient agricultural building set in one of the most dramatic sites of all Positano, the tiny village of Nocelle. From here you can vertically dominate Positano and its entire coast with endless emotions. Peppe and his family welcome you with a genuine and authentic hospitality. Simple and tastefully decorated. Rooms are furnished with simplicity and good taste and they are very comfortable. All have a private terrace with chairs and table overlooking the sea, for one's own privacy. Thanks to its position Casa Cuccaro is sun-kissed for most of the day during the summer and benefits warm rays during the wintertime. ... more less
