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.....

... the beach with the last of the days sun helped me dry off, it seemed a popular pastime as the town cats and dogs were all spotted lying on roofs and pavements soaking in the rays. At about 5pm we trekked back up the steep staircases and roads to the bus stop, admiring the views on the way, and got onto another packed bus to return to Sorrento while the sun was setting. This bus ride was better even though we had to stand in the aisle, maybe it was due to the swim ...

Upon arriving at the restaurant we were hit with the most incredible views of the perfectly blue ocean, with the Isle of Capri floating out on the horizon. Our hosts were the owners, Francesco and Stella, as well as the chef, Paolo. Francesco and Stella's six year old daughter, Margherita, took us through the gardens out back, which were technically out and down the cliff. We were treated to not ...
... The restaurant we decided on (La Cambusa) was very nice. Entrees were grilled squid, a caprese salad and fried zucchini flowers (in batter) and Nikki had a pasta vongole, Chris, some mussels (zuppa di cozze) and I had a bouillabaise (zuppa di pesce). My serve was huge and full of seafood. Fortunately, there was not a shortage of volunteers to help me! We then had to find the bus stop to take us back up to our hotel or it would have been a 1 kilometre walk up the hill close to midnight.
... since we found ours, so we all now have our suitcases. Our driver, Francesco is quite knowledgable about Naples history so we got several history lessons on our way back to Positano and our villa, Ponta del Sole. The restaurant that we ate at tonight was called Trattoria la Tagliata. It was a family restaurant that served only what they cooked that day, no menu. It was "death by food"! For antipasti they ...
... and cut specifically to fit through the doors, and the table put on wheels, so we can dine al fresco. It was wonderful. The Porter's appreciated the view and the skies were clear so it was a great view of Ischia.
How do you swim in the sea without getting sand in your pants? Jump off the back of your ferry boat into the deep blue Thyrrenian sea, which is what we did on Saturday. It was a full day of heading to the island of Capri, then ...
