My wife and I along with another couple stayed here for 6 nights and could never get enough of the view. We read about the posible difficulties with the steps, distance from the car park, and the method of payment and were somewhat concerned prior to booking. All of those concerns dissapeared once we opened two bottles of beer and a bottle of wine on the balcony.
If you are overweight, out of shape, or have difficulty getting around, this is not the place for you. If you are bored and tired of staying at a traditional hotel, you'll love this experience.
The Inn was everything described in previous reviews, the village gives a true "Italy" feel, and you will say to yourself "I thought staying in Italy was going to be expensive". When we spoke with people staying in Positano, they all wished they were looking down at the town rather than looking up at the mountains. Depending on the place you stay, you could find yourself looking at somebody else's laundry. You will not have to worry about your view here.
The pizza restaraunt talked about earlier does indeed have some of the nicest views in the world. We were welcomed like family and ate there 5 nights at 5 different tables and had 5 different experiences, whether it's the owner singing, the different views or the effort put forth by the owners to ensure a memorable meal.
The walk of gods is a real hike that one has to be ready for. Flip flops and sandles won't cut it, your hiking on a real hiking trail.
The bus works great and is a show in itself. Waiting for the bus in Positano, I would always have a large Peroni beer to prep myself up for the ride up.
We rented a car and were glad we did. We didn't always use it but when we had it, we didn't have to worry about which bus to take to get to wherever we were going. I was hesitant about it at first but if your a good driver in North America, you'll become a better driver in Italy.
All in all, we loved our stay in Nocelle and after seeing all the other towns in the area, were glad we chose that one.
