Colle Dell'ara is a beautiful Bed and Breakfast tucked away in Positano, off of the Amalfi Coast. Technically located in Montepertuso, a very small town that sits right above Positano. Nestled among the mountains with magical views of the coastline. WOW! The only word that came to my mind when I got here. If you're looking to relax with your...

We spent two lovely nights here. Definitely not enough time! Given that it took so long to get up and down to Positano by bus. That was the only drawback as far as I'm concerned. The rooms are quite spacious and the view from the balcony overlooking the coast is stunning. Breakfast was absolutely over-the-top! And the dinner that we...

Wow. I have put off writing this review because I wanted to keep this place all to myself... Colle dell'ara is a magical place. We stayed in April 2016 in the off season, and flew into Naples. From there, Pasquale had helped us arrange a terrific driver (in a comfortable Mercedes with wifi..). The driver safely got us to Colle...

We have stayed at Colle dell'ara for 5 nights end of October 2016. We can definitely recommend this place for its location, the superb views and the good breakfast! As advertised Colle dell'ara is situated on a hill high above Positano (about 477 m above sea level according to GMaps) with breathtaking views of Montepertuso, Positano and the coastline. You...

Loved every minute of our 4-day stay here. An adventure getting to the place (incredible 5-min walk down a country path), then once you are there, one of the spectacular views you will ever see. Spacious room, and small balcony. Nice, uncomplicated breakfast. Giacomo couldn't have been more helpful, he is right to be very proud of his family's place....

If you are looking for a genuinely Italian, warm and welcoming experience close to Positano, this is it. Colle dell'Ara is unlike any B&B imaginable. Perched high in the hills above the maddening crowds of beautiful Positano in the small village of Montepertuso, it does indeed boast outstanding views (right from your own balcony). A lush garden leads down to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. 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. ... more   less
