My friend and I stayed here in early April for seven day of the most wonderful days. Everything was perfect even all those steps we climbed every day and sometimes twice a day. We highly recommend to all and sundry and hope to re-visit in the near future.
Brought the family here for end of April vacation. Perfect B&B, great food, outstanding hospitality from Davide, Anna and family. Highly recommended. The climb allowed us to eat what-ever we wanted and not gain any weight!! This is a must-do accommodation for adventurers.
Stayed here with my wife on our honeymoon back in early October 2009. Can't say enough about the personal touch that David and his family bring to one's experience here! They keep their rooms in impeccable shape and take a great deal of pride showing guests around their property and telling them about the many different kinds of produce that they farm. 300+ steps to get up from the highway may not be everyone's cup of tea but did not bother us! The climb rewards one with a great view and wonderful serenity which can be hard to find on the busy Amalfi Coast
This ia a great value for money! I don't think the pictures do it justice; the vew is truly amazing. The rooms are clean and the hospitality of Davide and his family are exceptional. Yes, there are about 250 steps to get up there but we found it to be a welcoming change; the fresh air, the sound of birds, and the lush vegatation made the walk up to our room something we looked forward to. If I went to the Amalfi coast again I would definitely stay at Rifugio Degli Dei
Nach 250 Stufen Aufstieg, auch 2500 würden das Ziel rechtfertigen, ist man zwar nicht bei den "Göttern", aber ganz sicher dem Himmel so nahe, wie selten in seinem Leben ! Das liegt nicht nur an dem einzigartigen Ausblick, Sonne, die das Meer zum Funkeln bringt, die Berge aussenherum und die mit viel Liebe und viel Arbeit gebaute und gepflegte Anlage. Darüber hinaus führt die eher mit Worten nicht zu beschreibende Atmosphere dieses "Rückzugortes" auch dazu den Blick wieder in sich selbst zu richten, zu träumen und die Gedanken kehren schlagartig zu den wirklich wichtigen einfachen und unbezahlbaren Dinge des Lebens zurück; welche das sind, muss jeder für sich selbst entscheiden, aber sollte man sie verloren haben, hier findet man sie wieder !!
Die Gastfreundschaft, ( das Wort Gast könnte man auch weglassen ) die einem hier von allen der Familie entgegengebracht wird, führt allein schon dazu, daß man gar nicht wegfahren möchte. Einzig gefährlich werden könnte der von Signora Anna selbstgebackene Kuchen werden, er trieb meine "Kalorienreserven" doch gewaltig in die Höhe. Trotzdem für meinen nächsten Besuch: ich lebe gern gefährlich ;-) Grazie !
Wer darüber hinaus auch noch einen Bezug zu den " Freunden auf 4 Pfoten " hat, die hier rumwusseln, ist wirklich hier an diesem einzigartigen Ort dem Himmel sehr nahe !!
( Für die Bilder jedoch wurde kein Tier verletzt,zumindest körperlich; Scusa Bruno !! )
Grazie per tutto a Tutti, Ci vediamo
Worth the climb
Located high on a hill overlooking Positano with amazing views of the coast and the town, this is a newly refurbished house with pleasant well equipped suites. The family gave excellent personal service, and nothing was too much trouble. The home made cakes for breakfast were great, too!
Rifugio degli Dei, Positano
We stayed one week at Rifugio degli Dei in Positano, and enjoyed every single moment there. Davide and his family really made us feel at home. The apartments are super-clean, very beautifully furnished and decorated, and the view to the sea and Positano is gorgeous! Breakfast is delicious, especially the home-made marmalades and the best lemon cake in town. We are looking forward to coming back to Positano and Rifugio degli Dei again next year.
Stunning Location, Fantastic Apartment and Great S
Catch Bus from Sorrento or Amalfi get off at Arienzo (@ 3 stops after Positano or just after San Pietro Hotel coming from Amalfi.)
Call David and he will come down & organise your luggage or walk up 3 flights of steps 2nd house on left . There are plenty of steps so if you are planning to cook grab some supplies in Positano before arriving. Yes you can cook or plenty of restaurants in easy walking or bus distance.
Great spot to access Positano or the " Sentiero degli Dei" you can leave straight from your front balcony & walk up to Nocelle & on to Bomerano.
Davids Mother cooks a fantastic breakfast, excellent value.

This place is absolutely fantstic!!! The family will do anything to help you and make you feel good. It is very close to Positano. You can walk there (it takes 10 minutes) and very close to Arienzo beach (5 min walk). If you consider the price we have paid, it is definetely way cheaper than other places in town where you easily pay 150 eur per night and you will not find anything like this. It is a peaceful place, very well made and managed by wonderful people. I would defenitely reccomend this place. And I cant wait to go back there for a long weekend.
Worth Every Step
We spent 6 days in August and had an amazing holiday. The views from this property are stunning to say the least. Each apartment has its own private outdoor area that we found lovely to sit, relax, have drink and watch the activity out on the water below. The apartment itself was spacious, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Our hosts Anna, Paulo, David and Simone, supplied us with vegies grown on the property which we cooked up and ate for lunch or dinner.
Breakfast in the morning was out on the terrace and most mornings it was difficult to tear ourselves away.
Although there are a large number of steps to reach the property it kept the weight off and the view far outweighed the effort. To me I couldn’t have found better accommodation to experience Positano, we’ll be back!
