“A wonderful hideaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

We stayed in late October 8 nights at Casa Cuccaro, and until now still miss the sun-kissing balcony with stunning view of our room, the daily morning coffee brought by Pepe and the quiet village of Nocelle as a wonderful hideaway.

The room we had is spacious, bright, nice decorated and with a large balcony. The space for shower is a bit limited, but a shower with a seaview(!) and the bathroom itself is big, generally we're satisfied. Every morning we had to admire the spetacular Amalfi coastline on our balcony, with a sigh of content. The scene to see the sun fell right behind Capri and Sorrento peninsulais was also surrealistically beautiful. For this view all is worth already. Not to mention the great hosts like Dina+Pepe, the rich breakfast (especially the fruits) and the reasonable room fare.

About the location of Nocelle, if you like hiking and prefer a place comparably out of the traces of tourists, then it's a perfect base to explore Amalfi coast (at least the western part, for the eastern part we stayed in Ravello). We went down to Positano (via Montepertuso and Arienzo both) by stairs, hiked along Sentiero degli dei then down to Praiano, and came back by bus. The landscape and the views on the way were just amazing. Day trips to Sorrento, to Capri and to Conca dei Marini were also convenient, once you keep the bus time table in mind.

All in all, if you're still puzzled about where to stay in Positano, this is a place that we highly recommended.

This beautiful place was recommended by my sister and it was indeed well worth it. You can stay in town but you would never experience the view you see from here. The best hosts you could ever ask for. The bus stop is easy to get to and run frequently. Very clean rooms and good sized compared to others we stayed at in Italy. Several places to dine at in the area can not say enough about this B & B....love it

Casa Cuccaro in Nocelle (a short bus from Positano) was absolutely stunning!!! Peppe + Gerardina were perfect hosts; they made you feel like part of the family. They serve great breakfasts with home made cakes (delicious!!) and home grown fruits. We travelled all over Italy and Casa Cuccaro's cappuccinos + espressos were the best we had in Italy. The rooms were spotless and cleaned everyday. The view from the room and the terrace was absolutely breath taking. We could not have asked for a better place to stay in Positano.

Peppe and Gerardina are very passionate and it shows in every detail of their B+B. We would recommend this location to everyone!

Hard to say enough about Geraldina and Pepee. The location has million dollar views, just stunning. The facility is really well done, clean, bright, has everything you need. The breakfast is typically European but of high quality, especially liked the cakes Pepee's daughter makes. Their coffee is outstanding and a second or third espresso is an ask away. My grown kids loved Pepee's stories of his time growing up in the area. We all loved sitting on the deck with a beer or glass of wine watching the sun set (if you don't have your own Pepee will supply).
It is remote but as soon as you get used to the bus schedule, all you need to do is coordinate the return times with dinner etc - or call a cab for 38 euros if you miss the last bus. If you drive a rental to the place get Peppe to park it and leave it during your stay. You can get anywhere by bus or boat and you won't have a nervous breakdown driving down the mountain each time.
If there was an academy awards for hospitality and effort, Geraldina and Pepee would win one.

We went to this little gem outside the peak season and were not able to enjoy it fully (it was pretty chilly to sit outside on the patio/balcony) but the view was still magnificent. This place is very romantic and as it is apart from the village, would suit nature lovers who like to walk (there is a path from the village to the B&B but it is steep). Pepe the owner is a top-notch host. Kindness is his signature as he striked as conversation with us during breakfast on the terrace or helped us with our luggage. Really, we would go back to this authentic place as a romantic getaway.

I read many good review about this B&b and was very impressed by the garden/ocean view picture posted by its website. When I got there, though I have seen it from the website, I was still so amazed by the view at terrace garden! Besides the nature wonders, ocean, islands and cliffs, the host really makes an effort to decorate the garden with beautiful flowers, tables/chairs (for breakfast). Though the location is at Nocelle but it is quite convenient to go to Positanto, in my opinion. There is a bus, every 20-30 mins to the center of Positano, a good ride also. Just make sure you get the bus schedule. For the stunning view and warm hospitality from this B&B, and much reasonable prices (comparing to those in Positano) I will definitely stay at Casa Cuccaro next time I visit Positano again!
The room we stayed was right next to their living room (or at least I think it is), it was a bit small but very clean and modernly decorated. The size of bathroom is okay, too but the shower cube is way too small, I am a small girl and I found it difficult to turn around in the shower cube. For the breakfast, they have fresh made coffee (good) and many fruits, cold bread and sweets.
