Incredible spot- we had just the best time. We were in the "annex", which prior reviews had said was a far walk... but it was only a 5 min walk- flat- from the parking area, no problem at all, and a beautiful spot, beautiful view, excellent spot to hike from, we could not be happier. The host didn't speak much...

My partner and I stayed here for two nights and we just wish it had been for longer! A great B&B with an incredible view of Positano and the surrounding scenery. The hospitality was very good and we were given every opportunity to experience the area with great options by the B&B. The best being the 5 course dinner with...

Joe and I stayed at Casa Mariagrazia for our honeymoon and it was incredible!! Before arriving I was worried about accessibility because we weren’t staying right in Positano, but this was never a problem. We were happy to stay up and away from the busy, touristy streets of Positano with the incredible view below. There’s a bus that comes hourly,...

We had an amazing time at Colle Dell'ara. We wish we could have stayed longer! Our three days went by too fast. Pasquale has a wealth of information about the area, the breakfast was great (fresh figs were a favourite), and the view was absolutely beautiful. It is a bit of a hike, but well worth it. Be sure to...

Looks an ideal low key authentic B&B with a view, but despite paying a deposit and several emails confirming our stay, the owner hadn't made our booking! So on the day of our departure for Italy, I had a mad rush to find a new available B&B in the area in peak season. What a nightmare! Furthermore, he was rude...

My husband and I stayed at Colle dell'ara for the final few days of our honeymoon and really enjoyed our time there. Although we had a car, I truly recommend you make arrangements to be picked up or take the bus. Driving in Positano and Montepertuso (where the hotel is located) is not worth the hassle and we left our...

My husband and I just stayed here in July and it was amazing. The owners are so nice and welcoming. The place is located above Positano in Monteperruso--we got to the beach by walking down, which took us about 50 mins and was enjoyable. We got back by taking the bus, which was easy. The place has amazing views of...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Colle dell'ara is not a hotel. Staying with us, in our home, means treating yourself to a rare experience. We are in Positano, in the small village of Montepertuso, located just above this corner of paradise on the Amalfi Coast. The building is situated on top of the hill and can be reached on foot in 5-6 minutes through an ancient path, fully illuminated at night. We are Pasquale and Giacomo, who with the help of our father Michele, a few years ago we decided to undertake this activity which constantly is giving us the opportunity to convey to our guests our main passions for hospitality and good food. These passions, well-established in our coastal land and agriculture, allowing us to constantly reinvent the offer to our guests dedicated, basing it on availability and seasonality values. We host you in rooms equipped with private bathroom and balcony overlooking the sea of Positano between the islands of Capri and Li Galli. Each room has a large double bed (with the possibility of adding a single bed), and are equipped with linens, towels and toiletries. Free wi-fi connection is working in all our spaces. We provide you with keys for your independent access at every time. Upon your arrival you will find free parking slots along the road and we'll help you carry your luggage with a special pulling system. We will assist you from beginning, accompanying you throughout whole of your stay suggesting you the best local amenities including activities from ourselves offered. You will have here the opportunity to experience our land through different activities such us farming excursions and local cooking classes (events organized on reservation). We always include breakfast, different every day and based on availability of our gardens, or made by the breads and cakes that we daily prepare. The center of Positano is reachable by bus in 20 minutes or 35-40 minutes through a centuries-long staircase. For trekking lovers, our structure is directly related to the main paths of Monti Lattari and the most famous Walkpath of God. However, we are located at the center of several important location like Pompei, Capri, Amalfi, Ravello and Sorrento, reachable by ferry, bus or car. Nearby you will find shops and restaurants. ... more   less
