Mamma Rosa is a bed and breakfast situated in a small but typical village of Montepertuso, just above Positano.
It's the perfect location for an holiday immersed in the nature, at 5 minutes from Positano and its wonderful sea.
The area is very quiet and safe. Buses serve Positano, Nocelle. Parking is free.
You can reach us from the road by beautiful tree-lined stairs (around 200, help will be provided with your luggage). Due to it's exclusive position you can enjoy breathtaking views of the Amalfi Coast, the amazing Mediterranean sea, Li Galli Island (an island just off Positano, once owned by Rudolf Nureyev) and the famous Faragliaoni of
Capri all from your balcony.
Mamma Rosa double room tastefully furnished. It is bright and spacious
with a private balcony where you can enjoy breathtaking views whilst eating
your locally sourced breakfast. The bathroom is private, but not in room, just in front of it.
Montepertuso offers good services. Around Piazza Cappella there are restaurants,
taverns, bars, an off licence, a mini market and pottery workshops.
Things to do:
For trekking and hiking lovers, Positano offer some great walks
with spectacular views of the coast. The 'Trail of the Gods' (Il Sentiero
degli Dei) leading from Nocelle to Agerola towards Amalfi, is one of
these. For beach lovers you can get to Positano's main beach in
just 15 minutes by bus, and from the little harbour you can take a boat to the beaches of Arienzo, Laurito and Fornillo (you could walk to Fornillo beach, if you wish to do so).
Positano is an excellent base from which to visit Amalfi, Ravello,
Sorrento, Capri, Ischia, Procida, the ruins of Pompei and Herculaneum
(Ercolano), Vesuvius volcano and Naples.

This place is so beautiful and unique. As others have said, there is quite a climb to get to the B&B, 227 steep steps- but after getting up there we agreed we would have had no problem climbing way more stairs for that amazing view! The room and bathroom are very spacious and extremely clean! Our private terrace overlooked the little town of montepertuso and the mountains, the ocean, and all the way down the Amalfi Coast- you can even see the edge of Capri Island. Melania was very helpful and sweet, she even had a bottle of champagne waiting for us to drink on the terrace (our honeymoon) She also made amazing fresh croissants every morning and had a nice breakfast set out. Theres a little bus that takes you down to Positano from the square in Montepertuso (or right outside the b&b they picked us up there a couple times) Everyone in town was so friendly and helpful- we just wanted to stay there for a week and not even go anywhere! :) Be sure to stay at least 4 nights or so in order to have a day to just relax :)
Awesome B&B! I stayed here with my sister for a few days as a base to explore Amalfi Coast and Capri and the experience was amazing! Melania was a wonderful host. She made reservations for us at restaurants and for the ferry to Capri & answered all our questions about getting around the various towns. The rooms & bathrooms were absolutely beautiful and tastefully decorated in white and beige. Breakfast every morning was so good - served in the common room with a killer view of Positano and the cliffs below. The B&B is located in Montepertusso which is a small village above Positano about 25-30 minute walk. Be ready to climb the 200 steps from the bottom of the street (in Montepertusso) to the B&B - the view from the room/balcony is so worth it. I'd definitely stay here again. Highly recommend.
The room was light, bright and just right for Positano. The view was brilliant and we very much enjoyed sitting on the small balcony in the late afternoon sunshine and having a cold drink. The room came with its own private bathroom and a central kitchen and breakfast room in which Melania provided an excellent European breakfast each morning. We enjoyed sharing our travel adventures with her other guests (she has 2 rooms for rent) Located above the village of Montepurtuso it is a 20 minute ride by bus from central Positano up into the hills behind the town. To our surprise we found that Montepurtuso has some of the best restaurants that were filled each night with the tourists from Positano coming up the mountain.
The BNB is surrounded by tiered farming land where the land owners grow grapes, tomatoes, beans and zucchini.
Melania and Roberto were just fabulous hosts, Melania helped us with our luggage on arrival and when after some very nasty weather on our last day when our ferry was cancelled arranged for us to go with Roberto in his car to Sorrento which saved us from being thoroughly drenched - thanks Roberto!. She also recommended some great local restaurants in Montepurtuso where we ate some very memorable meals.
In short, great host, great location and highly recommended!
The abundance of warmth and hospitality Melania offers the guests easily matches the abundance of Sun and beauty of Positano . Mama Rosas B&B offers clean, organized and comfortable home-away-from home. Melania was so helpful providing tourist trips, bus schedules, even making restaurant reservations. She coordinated to get local fresh vegetables, herbs and wine for cooking .Amazing! There is no doubt that Melania and her beautiful family made this experience of visiting Positano one that will treasure for many years. Grazie! Gracias! Thanks. Visit Mama Rosas, and you will understand why this is a priceless place to stay, with a million dollar views of Positano and the Amalfi coast.
We wanted to sample the amalfi coast during our honeymoon in Italy and decided to stay in positano. We chose B&B Mamma Rosa because it was out of the busy area and the rooms looked like there was lots of attention to detail. It turned out to be everything we had hoped for to start our post wedding vacation. The area is quite, the rooms were immaculate, and the host, Melania, was an absolute sweetheart. Melania helped us with the directions via mobile, greeted us at the bottom of the stairs to help us with our bags, and recommended a great restaurant fir dinner, Il Ritrovo, which was fabulous...we ate there twice! We would recommend Mamma Rosa to anyone looking for a getaway on the amalfi coast!
I cannot say enough about Melania and her family! They were absolutely amazing hosts!! Melania made homemade breakfasts for us daily, helped me with my laundry, drove us to the bus stop and our departure date (we didn't want to ever leave) The view from our room was breathtaking!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you so very much Mama Rosa Family!!!!
A very nice place situated just above Positano. While in my opinion Positano isn't worth visiting, you could easily come and stay at Melanie's place for a couple of days. She was super nice, very helpful, and provided a good breakfast. If you stay here go to one of the restaurants she recommends, they are far better than anything you will find in Positano. I definately recommend staying here.
Mama Rosa's B&B was a gorgeous getaway. The view was astounding, the rooms were very clean, and Melania was very sweet and helpful. Montepertuso is a good place to relax and get away from it all, but we would recommend that you do sightseeing of the greater area (Pompeii, Capri, etc) from Naples or Sorrento as it is a bit long and convoluted to be day-tripping from Montepertuso with the erratic public transport system. Overall great experience and we would love to return one day.
Melania was great! My boyfriend and I had a really nice time at her B&B - it was very clean, had a great view and it was very comfortable. She even made a dinner reservation for us at a great place. I would love to come again and definitely stay longer than the one night we were there.
