Very nice stay, very welcoming hosts. A bit far but charming. Incredible view
We stayed here after the tourist season and it was a perfect little secluded getaway way above positano. A short walk to gorgeous hiking, great local restaurants, astounding views. Luciana is amazing. So sweet and helpful. You can see the care her family has put into via Sofia!
A very nice apartment overlooking Positano from Nocelle. The view is spectacular and Luciana and her brother could not be more helpful. My wife and I stayed 5 days. You are right on a cliff 1100 ft above the Meditteranean and at a 25 min bus ride from town. That is away from the tourist crowds. Positano is a hillside town so be prepared to use stairs. The local Nocelle Pizzaria is one of the best and your breakfast view is unbeatable. We will go back.
We did love villa Sofia! At first we were a bit dismayed by the high up location but we came to really appreciate the beauty and gorgeous views. Our room was comfortable and Luciana (who speaks 4 languages and is a dynamo of enthusiasm and positive energy) and her family have made a remarkable life here in the hills. They are helpful and knowledgeable about the area and will make sure you enjoy your stay.
This is such a charming B&B, and the host and her family who run this place are so warm and lovely! We really enjoyed our three nights here, and Luciana gave us lots of helpful recommendations and tips. I highly recommend Nocelle, the little village that is home to Villa Sofia, for people who really want to relax - it's set apart from Positano while still being very convenient to it, so you have way fewer people up there. We're looking forward to returning sometime!
My entire experience at Villa Sophia with Luciana was amazing. The location, Nochelle, is beyond imagination and the hospitality and care for guests by Luciana and her family was top notch. Just great and I highly recommend
Thank you for a lovely end to my holiday.
Luciana and her father were amazing hosts, extremely helpful and kind. The place is magnificent, the views are so beautiful, that we were sorry to leave the villa. The room has everything to feel comfortable: well equipped kitchen, cozy bed, warm bathroom. Recommend Villa Sofia for couples and for a single vacation.
Special thanks to Luciana for a tasty home-made cake for breakfast :)
Although I knew this listing was not in the center of town and that it'd be a bit out of the way, I booked based on past reviews' comments about the ease of accessibility, views, and host's hospitality. Yes, the views are beautiful, but if you don't have your own car, it's really inconvenient to plan your entire day around an extremely inconsistent and infrequent bus system (especially if you come in the off-season, like we did). And if you miss the last bus from Positano up to Nocelle-- expect to pay at least thirty euro for a ride back up. The listing itself is fine. The shower head was broken but everything was clean and comfortable (although this unit does not include the kitchen and living room area like some of the photos suggest). We had issues with wifi throughout our stay and never received a solid answer on when it might be fixed. The alternative was to use the wifi in Luciana's home which was a nice offer, but didn't always work. The little restaurant down the path from Villa Sofia (just down the stairs from the bus stop) was really good, affordable, and the staff super sweet. The other options are a bit more limited, further away, and pricier. Our biggest challenge during this trip was communication. I should have asked sooner if texting was a feasible way to communicate, but it was the only option I could try because the wifi was only available sparingly and it would have been too expensive to call with my American phone. Luciana didn't respond to any of the text messages I sent so it was unnecessarily difficult to check in (the bus schedule she sent was out of date) or ask about issues (wifi and the broken shower head). Not only that, but she often wasn't accessible on site to ask these questions in person. When I did ask for information in person, I felt like I received incorrect information (i.e. her brother told me group tours to Capri were more than €100, when actually they were only €55-60; he also said we could pay him for a ride to Sorrento to catch the bus to Naples but he actually couldn't get us there on time and we didn't find out until 10pm the night before check out). I have no doubt that Luciana has all the best intentions to be a wonderful host and for all we know, she was the perfect host for all of her previous guests. During our particular stay, however, the amount of miscommunication and simply wrong information we received left us disappointed on what otherwise might have been one of the most beautiful stays on the Amalfi Coast.
Villa Sofia is a hidden gem in Nocelle! You cannot describe the natural beauty of this place! The views are breathtaking! If you are planning to hike in Amalfi Coast, this is a place to stay.
Thank you Luciana for your hospitality!
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this place for your stay in Positano! First of all, the views… are simply amazing! It is so peaceful and serene up there… away from all the touristy noise down at the beach, where the “action” is. The room was clean and big and you get your own private bathroom! I was very excited about that. Secondly, Luciana, her mom – Sofia, and her dad are extremely kind and some of the most genuine people I’ve ever met! My first night, I got there late and because I was traveling solo they were really worried about me and helped make sure I felt comfortable and relaxed when I got to their place by offering me dinner, complete with dessert! I was very touched by their generosity and kindness. I really enjoyed staying there because it was precisely what I was looking for during my time in the Almalfi Coast… to get away and relax and find some peace. This place will give you exactly that! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
