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.

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.
Our stay was perfect from start to finish. Pasquale, his brother and father were the perfect hosts and were more than happy to help with whatever we needed. The view from our room was spectacular! We had their prepared meal on our first night and it has been a highlight of our trip so far- absolutely perfect! Will be staying again on a return trip to Positano!
Vägen till Colle dell`ara helt fantastisk!!! De vackraste och galna serpentinvägar - vilket äventyr! Vi blev mycket väl omhändertagna med rundvisning och uppfriskande drink med vatten blandat med något sött och myntablad, på terassen. Och vilken terass - helt magnifik utsikt över havet, bergen och Positano långt där nedanför oss - och terassens fyra glada katter och vackra blommor gav extra dimensioner. Rummet var gulligt, enkelt och rent - allt vad du behöver och med härlig balkong, här snackar vi "room with a view". Läget - du bor nästan uppe i himlen - är absolut det bästa!!! Bröderna Pasquale och Giacomo är fantastiska värdar! Intresserade att prata med dig, visar runt och berättar - vi förstår att de är stolta över sitt verk. Bröderna erbjuder tema-middagar som gjorts av grönsaker från den egna trädgården. Konceptet att äta tillsammans vid samma bord som övriga gäster är himla trevligt och skapade gemenskap. Vi hade en jättekul kväll! Vi vandrade också "Gudavandringen" eller "Path of Gods", några timmars småtuff men makalös vandring i häpnadsväckande natur!!! Vi rekommenderar också besök på de lokala restaurangerna i de små byarna uppe i bergen - charmigt, närodlat, genuint och trevligt! Och 24/7 är du alltid omgiven av denna fantastiska panoramautsikt över havet, bergen och byarna långt där nedanför. Känslan är som att vara med i en film. Vår absolut högsta poäng till denna plats och de två sympatiska värdarna Pasquale och Giacomo! Vi vill gärna komma tillbaka! Vänliga hälsningar, Christine & Tomas
Staying at Colle Dell'ara B&B was the absolute perfect way to visit the Amalfi coast. Pasquale made us feel very welcome and invited into his home, which was beautiful and full of character. He told us about his family and told their story as he showed us around explaining the family photographs all over the house. He was very helpful when it came to navigating Positano, Nocelle and Montepertuso. The rooms were great and the perfect size. Complimentary breakfast was served every morning too, freshly made cakes, bruschetta and eggs were a great start to every day. Despite the fact that we were a short bus ride away from the center of Positano I would definitely stay here again. The views are breathtaking and staying up in the mountains offers a less touristy experience.
You need a little effort to get to this wonderfull b&b. From the mainroad winds up a small path that leads to a great location with beautifull views.
Pasquale is very helpfull and kind. We had dinner in the house 1 time, cooked by his brother Giacomo. Italian food at its very best.
We enjoyed our stay a lot.
From the moment of arrival to getting back into the car to head to our next destination, Colle dell'ara was and is a magical place. High in the hills above Positano is this wonderful place.
Giacomo and his family truly share their love, heart and culture with you. He greeted us as the luggage was taken up by the pulley system. After being in the hustle and bustle of Naples, it was such a breath of fresh air to slow down. Giacamo walked us up the path to the home which is an experience itself. Once we came upon the home our mouths dropped on the beauty of this place. Such a warm welcome and we came in on the night of the family dinner. Giacomo and his father were busy making this lovely dinner and the menu was on the board as you came into the home. He offered us to decompress on the communal terrace. He then showed us to our room and again the scenery and views just make you fall in love. The rooms are comfortable and bathrooms are well equipped. Wi-fi was fast and easily accessible. We sat out on the terrace and just relaxed. On the communal terrace an adorable outdoor orange kitty quickly became our friend and love (named him Arancio). The garden they have is truly spectacular and is the center of the family dinner. This is farm to table!
The dinner that evening with the guests and family was the highlight of our trip. Unbelievable food that was out of this world! Not to mention the kindness and warmth you felt from Giacomo and his family.
On the second day we hiked the path of the gods which is a not miss! That night we went to a Trattoria Taglia nearby and again had an amazing dinner. Giacomo made dinner reservations for us.
They have a wonderful local wine offering that we shared one of the wines on our personal balcony overlooking the town and sea below. We also bought house-made limoncello and mandarincello to share at home and reminisce on our stay at Colle dell'ara.
We can only give the highest review and regards to Giacomo and his family for making the stay the best ever!

This was my first time in Italy and without a doubt, Colle dell'ara was the most beautiful and shall I dare say magical place to stay.
The reviews are on point. While doing my search I debated over whether to stay in town or here. I'm so glad I decided to stay away from all the hustle and bustle. The property has beautiful views and it has a very homey feel to it. Bedrooms are nicely decorated and overall felt like I was visiting relatives :)
The walk to the place from the main road is a little hike, but they take care of the luggage so that helps. The bus to town runs every hour and it takes about 20-25 minutes depending on traffic. You can also take the "steps" down to town as other reviewers suggested. It's a bit challenging on your knees but the views are incredible.
Pasquale and his father were very attentive and got out of their way to make me feel at home. Breakfast was great every morning (that coffee is delicious) and the famous dinner was so amazing. It was a great opportunity to sit with other guests at the table, get to know them, have great conversation while enjoying some great home cooking!!
Overall I really loved this place and would highly recommend it. Can't wait to visit again. Thank you Pasquale!!

We always hope to offer you a new wonderful family experience in the heart of nature, good food and wine, and Slow Life!
