TravelPod Member ReviewsHoliday House Gilda Positano
We were lucky enough to stay at Gilda's for 3 nights. What a place; the rooms are modest but with everything you need, the views are stunning and Gilda, Rosa and Giuseppe just want to do everything to make your stay the best it can be.
Gilda's is out of Positano, but that's not a problem - there are bus stops only about 30 metres away. We were happy to walk in each day, it's about 2 km down into the town (no footpaths but we felt quite safe)
The beach is nice, and we really enjoyed our daily swims (and the 300 steps to get down there)
The Amalfi coast - what can we say - Fantastico!!!!
We've just done 9.5 weeks of holiday and stayed in some great places but this is the best. Rosa, Gilda and the rest of her family make it special. Stay here.....

We woke up in this amazing, seaside village whenever we felt like it! Alternately strolled and struggled down the infinite amount of steps to the beach. And there something unexpected happened-- Dave liked the beach. But this was not like anything we have encountered before. There is not a lot of sand, but crystal clear water and wide walkways with places to eat and relax.
Dinner was at C'era Una Volta (Once Upon A Time) and was top ...
... and a fennel equivalent. Phil took the melon, I had the other two, both good.
Don't bother counting how many drinks I had today, easy answer, several!
Made it home tired and then OMG, the fireworks for the fish festival on the beach have just started and the noise is incredible. It is reverberating thru the valley and echoing. It is so loud that you would swear we are being bombed. The dogs in all of Positano are going insane with the noise! Phil, the fireworks junkie, ...
... is written post a couple of scotches and a bit(?) of wine. The afternoon was spent relaxing around the pool and reading. We also met our resident pet - marcello - a very cute tortoise who has a liking for for strawberries. I shall endeavour to get a photo at some point. Tonight we headed off into Positano for dinner - Brunos Bar- a restaurant on the side of the road. The kitchen is on one side of the road and ...
... a high cliff with a ravine caused by earthquakes thousands of years ago in the middle. In this ravine is an old water powered saw and flour mills at the bottom (dated around early 900's) - called 'Valley of the Mills' . This is really close to our hotel. Fishing is good in the area and they grow lots of olives, grapes, tomato's and lemons, including the lemoncello ones which are larger than grapefruit and look like footballs. It is a really nice ...
... from our guidebook; I really enjoy these. They help us orient ourselves in each place and point out sights we never would have noticed on our own, or give us info on the history of the city. Today we found a 13th century palace in an alley just behind the main street - who knew? I particularly liked Via San Cesareo, a narrow pedestrian-only shopping street. Many of the stores there carry the locally made specialty: Limoncello. Sorrento is lemon country, and while it's made ...
