The 6 room B & B is located on the hillside of Positano looking out onto the sea from 300 feet above the sea. The owners Paul & Lucia are warm & friendly-they even loaned us umbrellas for the day during a rainy day. Room was clean but very Spartan. Very quiet except walls are paper thin and you can hear neighbors snoring next door and walking above you but overall very quiet area.
The second B in B & B is breakfast & this was the weakest part of the place. Breakfast was served on a tray on the terrace (stunning views) but consisted of a "crosissant" wrapped in cellophane with stale rolls, good jam & butter and strong coffee. After experiencing typical continental breakfasts, this breakfast was disappointing so we bought fresh bread, yogurt etc locally and made our own breakfast each day. This detracted a bit from the overall wonderful ambiance of the place. In addition, the owners demand cash only as a means of payment which was challenging for us as we had to walk into town to use the ATM to get hundreds of Euros to pay. In this day & age, any business, even a B & B needs to accept some form of credit card for payment. In spite of these 2 negative comments, I would strongly recommend this B & B for any traveler not requiring a 3 or 4 star accommodation.
