TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel La Bougainville Positano
The hotel is comfortable and had a great balcony overlooking the town and the ocean. The hotel is just outside the pedestrian only section of Positano making it very convenient to walk down into the town but the drawback to the location is the exhaust from all the vehicles travelling up to the upper reaches of town and beyond. If you arrive, as we did, via ferry, the hike to the hotel with bags is quite steep and tiring.
The room was spacious and had good WiFi. The breakfast was OK not overwhelming but served in a nice breakfast room.
Staff were very friendly and helpful when needed.

Where did the time go!!
And, I still believe Australia is the best country in the world. We are so fortunate and there are some that need to be reminded of that as we all need to look after our very young evolving nation! We have the opportunity to achieve so much.
Our country is barely 200 years old and we have spent much time in places with 2000 year old histories. Its daunting and awesome.
1. In a word - stunning!
2. Crazy bus trips - from Sorrento to Positano and up/down to Nocello. Tight corners and cars having to reverse to let the bus through.
3. Naturally everything is up and down - makes you plan your movements carefully!!
4. Loved our private balcony and view of the ocean. Same can't be said about the bathroom - not much room and less water.
5. Our little cafe ...
... tree collection of hanging ornaments.
Tonight the group walked to a restaurant nearby and had a lovely meal of risotto, pasta, fish & veg, cake . The group of 8 got on so well we were laughing until we cried... not sure how the conversation disintegrated into a discussion of the mystery surrounding bidets.. but IT DID!
Tomorrow we take a boat to the island of Capri!
... fruit, cakes and a cream puff drenched in chocolate. And of course, the signature digestif of Positano, limoncello.
At some point a second bottle of wine arrived which we barely touched but we were able to take it with us. We left feeling full and extremely satisfied.
But alas, we were able to burn off half of our meal just getting home. 65 stairs up from the restaurant and the 220 up to Mamma Rosa. We had noticed earlier a lot of seeds on the steps, like the willow ...
... a big star for the city in the 1980s and the shrine includes some of his hair and other objects. The streets here are very busy and full of life. Next we stop into the Church of Santa Chiara. The church is gothic and not very ornate. We read that most of the frescoes were destroyed when the church was bombed in WWII. In stark contrast, we visit the Church of Gesu Nuovo, which is baroque. A bomb casing hangs from one wall. The bomb hit the church, went through the dome, but did ...
