About The Owner

I'm Melania, the daughter of 'Mamma Rosa'. My family and I are here to help with all of your needs. We are born and bred in the area so we have extensive local knowledge to make your stay in Positano and the Amalfi Coast memorable.

The Owner purchased this house in 1940

Why The Owner chose Positano

We are located above Positano centre and the main beach, only 15 minutes by bus running every hour in high season (May to October). We are away from the busyness of the centre of town but close enough to all of the main villages along the Amalfi Coast, and Capri Island is only 20 minutes by boat from Positano pier. Mamma Rosa B&B's unique position gives you stunning views of the Amalfi Coast and the Mediterranean sea.

What makes this house unique

Choose Mamma Rosa B&B if you want to have a travel experience like locals!

Trekking paths such as the world famous Path of the Gods "Sentiero Degli Idei" are close by. The Path of the Gods can be reached from the village of Nocelle which is about 25 minutes walk from us. The hike will take you above Amalfi in the town of Agerola (Bomerano) and gives you amazing views overlooking the Amalfi Coastline. Or if you prefer to relax on the beach and enjoy al fresco dining you can jump on a bus or you could walk through the neighbourhood of Montepertuso and Positano experiencing the natural surrounding sceneries and the little streets called vicoletti that characterise the area.

Positano is a beautiful place, and Mamma Rosa Positano was the perfect place to view it from. The views are breathtaking and ever changing. High atop Positano and the sea at Montepertuso there're several really amazing restaurants to choose from all walking distance from Mamma Rosa's. Angel and Melania have a spacious, immaculate villa with a spectacular view from each bedroom porch as well as the dining area where they will serve you your tasty breakfast each day, and direct you anywhere you choose to go. They were the perfect hosts. Yes there are steps -but such a feeling of accomplishment when you get to the top! Take time to enjoy this lovely villa.

If you are traveling along Amalfi coast via car (free parking) and planing to visit Positano and have a beautiful hike Path of the Gods, then you can't find a better place to stay! Breath taking views and wonderful location. Fully renovated facility, with great quality in mind! Beautiful rooms and bathrooms. Super, super clean! Angelo and Melania, are the best hosts ever. We feel really like home. Angelo has a big international experience in hospitality business, so every aspect of his business is treated with high professionalism. We like guys so much, that felt very sad leaving them, wish we can meet often. If you need any help with your hike, don't worry there is no need for a private guide, the hike is easy and Angelo will answer all of your questions. The Best restaurant Trattoria La Tagliata (price, quality and service are a very pleasant surprise) on entire Amalfi coast is just 2 min walk away :) Highly recommended place to stay!

A stay you will never forget!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late and because of this we couldn't find the property in the dark. That was no problem as the owner and her brother came and found us and escorted us to the location. We were then shown where to eat supper just steps from this B&B. The food and atmosphere were wonderful! While we were gone for supper our bags were brought up to our room and after supper we made the climb all 218 stairs. Believe me when I say it was worth every step!!! The rooms were impeccable!! Very clean and well maintained. The breakfast was great as well. The rooms were fantastic with lovely balconies overlooking the sea! I wish we had more time to spend there and if you are doing the Amalfi coast this is a great spot to stay!! As we checked out the owner carried two of our heaviest bags down by herself then came halfway back up and took our remaining bag from my husband. We had both rooms rented with family so it was very private as well. Would make a great weakly rental ( if you are fit) I would suggest packing light and don't forget anything in your car as I had to do two trips up the stairs because of a forgotten cell phone in the car.
