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.
Interaction with Guests
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.
Our host was very welcoming, accommodating and attentive. Someone was always available if we need anything. The location was a fun experience. The view off our deck was incredible. We had wonderful cappuccino in the morning to accompany a variety of breakfast choices. The evening meal we had at Colle dell'ara was exceptional. I would encourage anyone who stays here to take advantage of this culinary experience.
I can't recommend staying here enough. One of our favorite experiences in Italy for sure. Our room had an incredible view down on Positano and the sea. Giacomo and his dad were great and very helpful in our planning and arrival. Giacomo also gave some great recommendations on hikes in the area, which we really enjoyed. Also highly recommend participating in the dinners if you can. The food and ambiance were great, it was nice to talk with the other guests. Thank you so much Giacomo, we hope to return soon!
We had an amazing time at Colle dell'ara B&B! Pesquale is a wonderful hospital host, we seriously felt like we were at home. The views are absolutely breath taking. This is a once and a life time experience staying here as you are situated high up in Positano overlooking the town. Make sure to eat one night here. By far it was one of the best meals we had in Italy. I would stay here again!
As per the earlier reviewer's comment, if you are looking around, trying to decide where to stay in Positano, look no further just book it! I am so glad i took his advice , not only did it save me time from endlessly browsing ard, it turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip.
The property is most charming - you have to hike up for 5-10 mins before you get to the house and then you get to see why its so special. The view is simply awesome - you can see all of Positano and as far away as Capri. The hosts are very welcoming, warm and helpful. We did the dinner at the BnB and it was so fresh, tasty and delicious.
What a wonderful place to stay. Amazing views, beautiful food using the "slow food" ethic, loveky spaces fulled wuth quiet music surrounded by firstly their gardens abd then the mountain with postiano below. It is high but worth it as you are above the town but feel part of it and has a great walk down and busstop at entance on return if needed. The family are great hosts and make you feel special. We loved it! Thankyou Giacomo.
The family who runs this B&B is wonderful and the service is outstanding. We mostly interacted with Pasquale who was always eager to help and provided any accommodation we asked for.
Location: their description of the location and its proximity to other places is pretty accurate. We enjoyed the location and all other guests were happy to flee the hustle and bustle of Positano at the end of the day and enjoy the peace and quiet of the B&B. However, keep in mind that the distance of Colle dell'ara from the city will for instance keep you from a midday nap or some rest since it's not convenient to travel back and forth multiple times, and also because of the location the experience is going to be a little different from staying right in the city.
Accommodations: You will have pretty much anything you need. I even asked for a hair dryer and an iron! :)
Rooms: Our room was very spacious with an amazing view and a bathroom inside the room. However, for our last night stay (which they kindly provided for us without previous reservation) the bathroom was outside the room but still private. So if that's a problem for you, you might want to ask for a room with en suite bathroom.
At the end I can only thank this lovely family for providing an unforgettable experience for their guests. Cheers to you all.
Pasquale, Giacamo, and their whole family made us feel welcome. Their home and land are beautiful, and the view from our patio, and the main patio was breathtaking. Breakfast every morning was amazing. The fresh figs and grapes from their land were the best! We had two dinners there and it was so tasty and fun to talk with the other guests and to share our journeys. Being pretty high up, we did the walk down to Positano and it was beautiful. Also Nochelle is a short hike up. Such a cute town, and the amazing Path of the Gods is there. It was an unforgettable amazing experience!

Hello everybody! I'm Pasquale.
I am graduated in Political Science and after many trips around the world I decided to return in Positano and running here, with my brothers and my family this "adventure" based on hospitality.
We always hope to offer you a new wonderful family experience in the heart of nature, good food and wine, and Slow Life!
