Hotel La Bougainville

... matters worse we had both neglected to put on sun screen until we'd spent several hours on the open water. We were both badly sunburnt which we hadn't really noticed until we made it back to the hotel and calmed down. After a cool shower and some Aloe we headed into town for a quiet dinner. We happened to end up at a table that was inches away from another couple who sat down at the same time as us. By the time we got our drinks it felt like we were dining with them so ...
... say we all enjoyed the night (our last one in Italy). Nikki shared with us some snippets of her childhood years that we weren't aware of. All in all, it made the night really memorable and enjoyable. These special moments are uncommon and I will savour this night for a very long time. BTW the food was good too!
Tomorrow, we will depart at about 0815 for Napoli Airport. Next stop - Majorca (and the Hutts).
... we made a booking for dinner. When we arrived the waiters were most attentive and very friendly and humorous. As we had been told the seafood here was fabulous we choose the octopus carpaccio (which we thought could have been a risky choice) and the extravagant fruit de mare zuppa, which was meant to be a seafood soup for two filled with every kind of seafood you can imagine. Well the octopus was so delicious, obviously cured in Amalfi lemon juice it was ...
... and white furniture. We had a very funny time with the two of us being in fits of laughter over some pretty silly things. It was really good fun and as we walked back up the windy road to our villa we met up with a Aussie train friends again. It felt like we had run into old friends which was gorgeous.
Back to our villa to eat some nibbles and admire the lights of Positano. It is so lovely.
... fully booked so we walked another 100m and found a lovely family owned Trettoria, C'era una Volta, where Allan enjoyed fresh anchovies for the first time and Rena stated she had the best white wine on our trip - a house white served in the traditional porcelain jug.

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.
