We were recommended La Ginestra by the owner of the b&b we were staying at in Positano and decided to walk up there on a (very) hot day. The food and welcome were very much worth the walk - superb local (homemade) produce at incredibly reasonable prices. There is no a la carte menu, you are given a tasting menu of amazing quality food - we had a huge antipasti selection with cheese, meats, vegetables, quiche, salads and croquettes - not forgetting the bread! This was followed by a lovely pasta course, with an option for another pasta course after that but we were absolutely stuffed. Though not too stuffed to have a piece of delicious lemon and ricotta cake :) All washed down with lovely chilled wine for the incredibly reasonable price of 45€ for two people! This was some of the best food we ate during our two week holiday in the area - a definite must-visit! The views from La Ginestra are stunning, definitely worth walking up from Positano but it's a tough route so driving might be the better option for some. We are already trying to plan a visit to stay over at La Ginestra as I would love to see the agricultural side of the business, it seems like it would be interesting and lots of fun. Grazie for our excellent lunch!…
Definitely recommend! Quiet with country atmosphere. Best to have a car to get down the hill. They did not offer a shuttle as described and was difficult to communicate in English. Great organic food, , very gracious accommodating owners. Would be great for a family reunion w. little kids as they have huge play area. Lovely place to walk around the tiny area for 1 day, otherwise will need a car. Scary drive up the tiny road to get to the farm. Glad we had a local driver bring us there and pick us up 2 days later.
Perfect for a trek from sorrento to Amalfi on the hiking trail 300. Big room with terrace and great view to both sides of the ocean. Diner is a three course menu and just great. Really friendly Staff Right koordinates are N 40° 38.672' E 014° 28.723'
My wife and I had a very pleasant stay. The place is lovely. Gardens all around full of flowers and they grow some of their own veg. The views are amazing at any time of the day and night. Breakfast is very basic - coffee, bread, jam, etc. We had dinner several evenings. Some were excellent, some so-so. The drive to Sorrento is a good 40 minutes of narrow, twisting, turning roads. The roads didn't bother me, but the distance was a bit much. The views really sell this place, but take into account its distance from "civilization".
Found it on an Italian website. We arrived late due to terrible Amalfi traffic but the hostess kept the kitchen open for us. It is in the middle of nowhere but after the insanity of the coast you are grateful for the quiet. Lovely people who run the place and you can buy stuff they actually produce on the farm. Great value.
We had a wonderful family meal here on a Sunday lunchtime. The setting is stunning. Beautiful views and very original. Very rustic. The food is locally grown, mostly on-site and cooked by a highly qualified local chef. We all enjoyed a wonderful five course meal at extremely reasonable prices. Service was also delightful.
Very nice staff and welcome with coffee. Very large room with a terrace and very nice view. Diner (3 course) for € 15/person. Good Italian food. Continental Breakfast is ok. You will need a car because, as far as we know, there is no public transport.
Nice spacious and clean rooms with amazing views overlooking the sea, and west-facing so spectacular sunsets. But don't be deceived by the apparent close-proximity to Positano when looking at Google maps - it maybe only a mile or two as the crow flies, but the windy mountain roads mean that the drive takes nearly and hour. Breakfast was good with a range of breads, pastries, cheese, ham and home made jams. We chose to eat dinner (£15 pp) there, and was told that it would include a pasta dish followed by a meat course then cake. We were a little disappointed to be served a tomato and mozzarella salad instead of the meat course, but the food was delicious nevertheless. Staff were friendly and welcoming.
This is how small family run farm should provide unique service and experience. Owner is super friendly and caring. We arrived really tired after whole day trekking and was welcomed with wine and sandwich. Loved this small gesture! Room was spacy, nicely decorated in the style of farm, view from room was just stunning! We even saw Ischia from here! Home made diner was super delicious, huuuge, with good local wine for very good price. You can observe chef when he is making diner. Location is far away on the hill over Positano. Very relaxing, home-feel. Would come again!
This was a lovely rural find that we booked and stayed on the same day for 2 nights half board, fantastic views and located ideally for walk down mountain to Positano, we were party of 3 adults and 2 young children.staff very friendly and helpful accommodation was good and comfortable beds, room 4 and 4b have a lovely terrace. Dinner and breakfast fairly basic
