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.
- 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
