If you have ever fantasized about a romantic B&B on the Amalfi coast, Le Ghiande is the B&B you have been dreaming about. It is absolutely delightful.

You buzz in the gate and walk down a long walkway awe-struck by the views to your right while alternately admiring the garden on your left full of tomatoes, peppers, onions, flowers and much more. Salvador really does greet you with cold beverages and a snack when you first arrive.

The staff is very helpful with accommodations and with local activities.

The rooms are clean, modern and nicely furnished. There is a mini-bar refrigerator in the room with reasonable prices (really). Our bathroom was large and enjoyable with all the amenities. We stayed in several B&Bs during our Italy trip and this was by far the best breakfast provided. It included pastries, bread, cheeses, cold cuts, cereals, juices, coffee and more that I am not remembering.

The only drawback may be its location. It is also a positive in many ways being away from crowd. It is located up the hill from Positano in Montepertuso. There is a walk of 1200 stairs down to the beach and town, and you can always take the bus back up.

If you have a car the location is not a problem. We arrived by SITA bus, then we needed to take the local bus up the hill to the B&B. We arrived in mid-afternoon and did not have an issue. On the very crowded evening bus I saw on two occasions the bus driver refuse boarding to travelers with luggage. The bus runs about every hour during the day, but it is not so frequent during the evening. The evening bus is really crowded, but all the locals seem to be used to it and enjoying it. I found it fun myself and just part of the adventure of independent travel. Local taxis are also available, but they are not cheap.

Just a caution if you have issues with stairs. From the road up the B&B you have to climb perhaps 80 or 90 stairs. I’m sure if you called they would come down and carry your luggage for you.

This is an absolutely wonderful B&B. Hopefully, we will get back to the area and we will definitely stay here again.

It´s fantastic place for vacances! Beautiful, clean, with marvellouse views from the room´s terrace, delicious breakfasts in the open terrace in the garden. The kindness and hospitality of the hosts - Salvatore and his father Carlo made our Positano´s experience even more pleasant and rich. We enjoyed Montepertuso very much. From "Le Ghiande" it was easy to visit another beautiful places of the Amalfi Cost (were very useful the explanations and advices of our hosts). Certainly we would repeat the experience in the future! Thank you, "Le Ghiande"!

I feel ashamed for ever giving another place 5 stars, because they don't even come close to how wonderful Le Ghiande is. A beautiful view, a large , clean room, and the most kindest hosts I have ever stayed with. The B and B is not in Positano(thank goodness), so if you are looking purely for convenience this probably wouldn't fit your ideal. There are some wonderful restaurants right near by-I recommend il Ritrovo- it was very good. But la tagliata is only5 minute walk as well. Nocelle is a 25 minute walk where you can also begin the Path of the Gods. One morning we walked down the 1200 stairs to Positano, also right down the street from B and B. To get to Le Ghiande from Positano you have to take the bus which runs at least every hour. There are also 100 steps to the B and B. this was not a problem for us, but I knew they were there and staff met us at the bottom of the stairs to assit in carrying our luggage up.
Breakfast was great-enough to fill up on and freshly baked croissants and cakes. The only negative thing about this place was that I had to leave. I would stay here every time I returned to Italy. Simply amazing!

We didn't really have an understanding of where this B&B was located but we discovered that it is paradise. Salvatore, his father Carlos, cousin Anthony and helper Dmitiri are four of the most helpful, kind and gracious hosts one could hope for. Our room had a stunning view from a private terrace and was perfectly lovely. An absoute abundance of fresh baked goodies was presented every morning with homemade jams and honey. We later discovered that Salvatore baked it all! We stayed for five days and were made to feel like family. When we left Dmitiri said, "see you next year!". My husband felt this was the best trip we have had since our honeymoon many years ago, high praise indeed. We will return here, hopefully next year.

Me and my girlfriend went mid September 2013 for a long week away and could not be happier that we chose this wonderful place. It IS a short bus / reasonable walk down to Positano, but is definitely worth it. Whats more, the restaurants in Monterpurtuso are wonderful so the need to go into central Positano in the evenings is reduced.

Breakfast at the B and B is superb, with wonderful views. The rooms could not be cleaner and are very comfortable/well equipped, including kettle with teas, a mini fridge, tv, wifi.

We HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone, Salvatore, the host, and his staff, are as wonderful as all the other reviews make out. Don;t hesitate, book this place.

Room Tip: We had the room Vietri. Although it doesn't have a full balcony, only a Juliette balcony, it was lovely and wasn't a problem due to the amazing garden/patio area that the B and B has for all to use. Didn't see the other rooms, but would chose this one again.
