The view is as good as everyone says it is but the other wonderful aspect of Villa Sofia is the peacefulness. It's a dramatic contrast to the busy "touristy" feel of Positano. There are local restaurants within walking distance and the beginning of the Path of the Gods famous walk along the cliffs is within a few minutes walking distance....

When I first arrived I thought, why aren't I here for longer, this place has jawdropping gorgeous views, I would have given Villa Sofia a higher rating but on day two of my stay, the girl nextdoor to me had a male friend over for lunch outside her room. This created quite a stir between Lucianna and her mother, Sofia....

Thanks for a nice stay. We can really recommend this B&B especially because of it's special location high above the shores of Positano. The hospitality of the family is amazing - a truly great place !!

My sister, brother in law, and boyfriend, recently stayed here for 2 nights off the Amalfi Coast. The views were breathtaking and the staff was amazing. Lucianna greated us with snacks and homemade Limoncello. She brought us little snacks and floore during the afternoons and the breakfast was delicious. There are quite a few stairs and if you are driving...

All be it a 5 minute walk from the bus stop, the views from the balcony, and rooms were breathtaking. Also having Luciana a stones throw away, she was able to provide tonnes of information about the sites, restaurants, transport and treks. There was not a bad room, everything was perfect, and the kitchen was very handy to have also....

Our family of 4 spent 3 nights at this villa in January 2014. We were welcomed with complementary drinks. We arrived just in time for the sunset...one of the best I have ever seen! The villa is about a 10 minute drive from Positano and on the edge of a sheer cliff. We spent hours just sitting on the villa...

We stayed at Villa Sofia for 3 nights in November and felt like this was where our Italian vacation really started (after a rough start a week earlier). It has an absolutely amazing location, the best we've ever stayed at. All the units are wonderful, we particularly enjoyed having the unit with a spacious living room and spacious kitchen/dining area....

Arriving at sunset was a special experiece. The Villa is located at the (real!) end of the street to Nocelle, with an additional walk of 5 - 10 minutes. A very warm welcome with a drink on the terasse with a beutiful view over Positano from Luciana and her family. The lagguage has not to be carried the long way...

We stayed at Villa Sofia in September for 4 nights and loved our time here. Our hosts were very friendly and amicable and made our stay here one of our favourites. Our unit was very clean and comfortable and had a handy little kitchen. We had superb panoramic views from our room both day and night over Positano and the...

Villa Sofia is the ideal bed and breakfast place to stay during your visit to Positano and The Amalfi coast! A very warm and welcoming family run this serene villa.
