We had a great time at this holiday house overlooking the sea! Rosa and our adopted italian family were perfect hosts during our stay. Room was spacious, AC worked well, water pressure was great in the shower, and the view is incredible! We didn't cook in our room but we used the shared kitchen facilities with the balcony overlooking the ocean on a daily basis for delicious breakfasts and just chilling after visiting Positano, Amalfi, Ravello, and Praiano. The bus stop is pretty much right outside the front door of the complex, but if you feel like walking, it is an easy 10 to 15 minute walk into the center of Positano. Steps from the property also directly lead to the beach below if you want to take a dip in the ocean. Rosa made perfect recommendations for us including local restaurants (which will come pick you up and bring you back home), bus/ferry times, day trips, and local attractions. Note also, the end of the incredible Path of the Gods hike is very close to this villa, so you won't have far to walk to get home once you come down the 1,500 steps at the end of the hike. Probably our favoriet place we have ever stayed during our many trips to Europe. 10 out of 10 stars, Molte Grazie!!!

Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing 7 days staying at Holiday House Gilda! What a perfect location, and wonderful hosts. We loved waking up to Gilda and Guiseppe making us a delicious breakfast, with a view. We looked forward to evenings in the garden overlooking the sea while we drank wine and read books. The proximity to incredible hiking was a real highlight. Rosa was awesome, and always there to help with advise on where to eat or what to see on a given excursion. This was the best vacation ever! Grazie mille from Cati and Corrine!!!!

Exceptional!! View and hospitality couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

We lucked out renting a room in this gorgeous location by chance. Not knowing anything about Positano, we chose this place at random...and we couldn't have done it better. The hosts were warm and helpful; the views were simply spectacular; and having off-street parking was a bonus. We were able to stay only 3 nights on our tour of Italy...this is a place to stay for a while and relax.

Hope that we can stay at Holiday House Gilda again, only longer!

On arrival we were upgraded to a larger suite with a stunning view of Positano because it was available. The suite was clean, comfortable, and well maintained with a small kitchen and eating area. The location allows you to walk into Positano and walk down to the public beach for a swim in the sea. Be ready for lots of stairs and steep cliffs through the area. Our hosts made excellent recommendations for dinner and arranged for a shuttle to pick up and drive us home, gave us advice and information about our activities for the day and helped us celebrate a 50th birthday. Rosa and Daniella made us feel like family and were very warm and gracious hosts.Thank you for making our first trip to Positano so enjoyable, we hope to see you again!!

Must stay here!

  • 5 of 5

Staying here absolutely made our trip to Positano. The hospitality was amazing and they really do make you feel like a relative coming to visit. We have delicious breakfasts with an incredible view every morning. It's a little bit of a walk down the stairs to get to the beach below, as it is everywhere along the coast, but the beach below was worth it. It was a lot less crowded and nicer to swim at than the main beach. It's a short walk into town - about 15 minutes along a windy road - easy enough to do, even at night after dinner it was fine with a small light. If I come back to Positano it will definitely be my first choice to stay!! You will love staying here.

Best stay in Italy

  • 5 of 5

The views from Holiday House Gilda over the Sea to Positano blew us away but it was the friendly, helpful manner of Rosa and Daniela that made it the best accommodation we experience on our holiday in Italy. The breakfast of cereals, yoghurt, fresh fruit and pastries was terrific but an added bonus was Daniela who cooked us eggs anyway we liked. Thankfully we were able to park our rental car inside their garage which is very rare in this area. Rosa was a wealth of knowledge and we appreciated all her fantastic advise such as getting a ferry to Amalfi and then a bus to walk the" Walk of The Gods" which was absolutely stunning, to organising a free boat pick up for our day trip to Isle of Capri. Rosa suggested great local restaurants and organised for us to be picked up and dropped back at no cost. She was always on hand to contact for help when we got lost. The family really made us feel welcomed and made our Positano holiday one we will never forget. We have already told all our friends about this holiday house and hope to get the opportunity to go back again.
