Thank you for the wonderful stay to you and your family! The accommodation was spacious, comfortable and apartment was complete, exceeded expectation really since we booked based purely on location. Host were also very helpful to accommodate our two children. The location with steps may not be for everyone but for hikers and the more adventurers this is a perfect place. Thank you again!
Thanks to Lucianna, mamma sofia and Rafaello, we had a lovely tay in Villa Sofia. As the other reviewers have pointed out, this stay is special because of the people and the simplicity of the place. It makes you one with nature and peaceful. It was a learning experience for my kids as they realised that they don't have to be in a 5 star resort with 10 swimming pools and eat till you die buffet and tacky evening shows to actually have a great time. Mamma Sofia made lovely lunch for us the day we arrived. Lucian is extremely efficient and reliable. This place is pristine, pure and hope it remains the same.
Pros: secluded, peaceful, lovely sea views, right on the Path of Gods
Cons: not for those averse to walks or those expecting 5 star accommodation.
La estadía en Villa Sofía fue fascinante! El paisaje y el trato que Luciana y familia brindan justifican largamente el esfuerzo realizado para llegar. Allí no se visita Positano y alrededores, se viven! Conocimos y recorrimos lugares que de otra forma nunca hubiéramos encontrado. We really fell in love in Villa Sofía!!!
When I posted photos of Luciana's place on FB, my friends' gaws hit the floor. The location is mind-blowing. The view is as it's shown and the property is the quaint, rustic, villa that every romantic dream is made of. It's not in Positano but it's a world unto its own, high up the mountain, looking down on the whole coast. Now, that brings me to the host - Luciana. Luciana is the sort of host that I want to be one day. EVERY morning, like clockwork, breakfast would arrive with some of the world's most incredible coffee. The fire was stoked every night before we arrived home and ANYTHING that we asked for was NEVER a problem. I don't know why or how but Luciana is born for this. She is one of the world's great hosts. So, if you're looking - stop. Just start booking!
We loved staying here! The room (more like an apartment!), the hospitality, the view, the service, and the little details were wonderful! They helped us with parking, and welcomed us with limoncello! She gave us great recommendations, of things todo and places to eat. We would definitely stay here again because we preferred being up away from the crowds yet still close enough to go to the shops/restaurants during the day. Thank you Luciana!!
We arrived to Positano in the pouring rain (that's what happens when you visit in January!) but even the dreary day couldn't put a damper on our wonderful stay. Luciana and her entire family were accommodating and helpful from the moment we arrived. The views from the villa were stunning. But even more special than the wonderful space was how well our hosts treated us. Luciana was helpful with telling us how to get around. On our second night it rained and we were trapped inside, but they brought us dessert and delicious tempura snacks. This is truly a spot not to be missed. We can't wait to return one day - but next time it will be during the summer! Thank you Luciana and family! It was a pleasure meeting you all!
The place is in a very small village with extremely beautiful views of mountains and sea and the views are as described in the photos. It was clean and it feels really homey. Luciana also is a very nice and helpful host. She helped us with our baggage and gave us the address for the attractions in the area.
There are also some rooms for improvement. Breakfast can be a little bit more luxury. In addition, the small portable heater was barely able to keep the place adequately warm in winter and warm water could be more stable.
We traveled in January which is not the best time of the year to go there but overall, we are satisfied with our choice and recommend the place.
