About The Experience
With lovely views, close proximity to town, and a great place to take day hikes, this Amalfi Coast villa rental with private pool is perfect for a family or group of friends. Overlooking Positano, Capri, and the Li Galli Islands, the property is located at the beginning of the Pathway of the Gods, a beautiful and scenic hiking path. Also within walking distance are a grocery store, restaurant, and a bus stop that can take you right to Positano.
Location Description

The property is located above Positano where there are restaurants, shops, ice creameries, markets, a bank, and post office. It is accessed via approximately 100 steps. From the town center is a pedestrian path of 600 meters, which will lead to Spiaggia Grande Beach. There are also bus stops in town that can take you up and down to other beautiful towns along the coast, including Amalfi. Amalfi is a town that dates back to the 6th century and was once an important trading center with historical and medieval architecture throughout the town. The main sites include the Duomo, in Amalfi's center, the cathedral of Sant' Andrea, which dates back to the 11th century, and the Cloister of Paradise. There is also a museum dedicated to the works of Morelli and a museum where you can view artifacts of Amalfi's long, and interesting history. During the summer months, there are daily ferries leaving from Positano to Capri, Sorrento, and Naples.

Please Note: While the Amalfi Coast is beautiful and charming, it is also steep, with many uphill and downhill stairs and walkways. In general, it is an area that is not kind to those of us with knee or mobility issues. This should be considered before booking a property in this area.

Nearby Attractions: Positano (shops, restaurants, cafes, markets, the beach, bus stop), Amalfi (Duomo, ancient cathedral, museums, ferries), Ravello, Sorrento (beach, harbor, restaurants, shops, art galleries, museum, markets, cinemas, wine bars, bowling alleys), Naples airport

Customer Reviews

We had a wonderful time at Villa Pertuso!
Enjoyed Most:
The views at Villa Pertuso were unparalled!
Enjoyed Least:
A little far from Positano but there is a bus from Nocelle to Positano every hour. Bus ride is about 20 min.
Surrounding Area:
Beautiful surroundings, high above Positano. Very quiet and peaceful. Proximity to the Pathway to the Gods trail is very convenient.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Postiano is not walking distance and the next town of Montepertuso is really not walking distance for most people(unless you are hiking).

Our stay at Villa Pertuso was incredible. The view and the whole property was amazing.
Enjoyed Most:
The view was incredible.
Enjoyed Least:
At time there was a methane smell that came up from the drains. This is likely due to the cliff-side location and old pipes.
Surrounding Area:
The view was incredible. You are up and and out of the way of Positano and have the most incredible view of Montepertuso and Positano. It is quiet.
Nearby Events or Locales:
You are in the heart of Nocelle.
Tips or Restaurants:
Just a walk down the stairs and you are at Ristorante Santa Croce and the end of the Path of the Gods. This restaurant is extremely good and well priced. The service was excellent. They get a lot of hikers for lunch since it's located right at the end of the hike. Dinner is quite good and it also has an incredible view. Definitely book a lemon grove tour with Lemon Tour de Riso (book via I found this through a friend. Elena is the tour guide and speaks excellent English. We met up with her at Hotel Marmorata, but she will pick you up if you connect with her far enough in advance. It's 40 Euros for the half day and 70 Euros if you would like a seaside 4 course lunch featuring Amalfi lemon-inspired dishes.
I would make it more clear in the arrival directions that the villa and the town of Nocelle are not accessible by vehicle. You will have to park outside the town and walk up some stone steps to get to the villa. It is not a far walk but if you are handicapped, this is not the place to stay. I would mention that you just follow the road once you take the left off of SS163 (that turns into several roads) until it ends in Nocelle. Putting in Via Nocelle, Positano, Italy in GPS will take you there. There was also some confusion about the key to the private parking area for guests in Nocelle. We thought we needed to keep the key to the gate in the box but it turns out we needed to keep the key on us and return it in the box at the end.
Check In Out:
I texted the property manager before we arrived and she called back when we were almost to the villa. Guests should definitely bring a cell phone that works in Italy. There is a donkey service where a donkey can take your luggage to your room. We arrived too late to get this but I would see if the property manager knows about it to suggest to other guests. Heavy luggage and stone steps are not your friend.
