A Perfect Place to Stay In Every Way!

My girlfriend and I just returned from a week-long vacation in Positano, Italy. Choosing to stay away from the "hustle and bustle" of Positano centro, we chose to stay atop the hill in Montepertuso at La Tagliata. We made the right choice. Quiet, charming, with beautiful views, among the "people" of Positano and Montepertuso.
Giorgia runs the rental portion of the business at La Tagliata and is incredible in every way. From the constant, clear contact during the planning stages of our trip to her attentiveness during our stay, our experience was amazing. Conversing through email, Skype and instant message, we confirmed our stay at la Limonella about 4 weeks prior to our trip. Note: this establishment works on a cash only basis (both room and restaurant). Do not let this be a deterrent. You can trust Giorgia and her family entirely. They are completely trustworthy and are looking out for you at all times, and want for you to have the most enjoyable experience while in their care. They not only succeed, they exceed.
Giorgia also arranged for a private driver from/to Naples airport, a private driver for us for a day trip to Pompeii and also had many other suggestions which made our trip to the Amalfi coast an incredible one.
La Limonella... A small, quaint room (one queen-sized bed and adjoining bathroom), it was clean and perfect. Open the two, large wooden doors and allow the glass partition doors to provide for you an incredible view of the terrace and the sea. You can also cook on the terrace using the providing grill AND the vegetables from the garden on site.
In addition, towels and a hair dryer are provided. There is a very small refrigerator in the room and a small closet. A television hangs in the corner and wi-fi is available in the room, which was very useful. During the 7 nights we were at La Limonella, our towels and sheets were changed twice, and the room cleaned at the same time.
Our first (huge) meal at La Tagliata was included in our price, as was a terrific daily breakfast of homemade sweets, cheese, meats and cappuccino. The food and atmosphere were only surpassed by the service and the lovely welcoming members of the La Tagliata family (Papa, Mama, Pepe, Giorgia, Vincenzo, Antonetta and the rest of the staff).
If you are looking to experience this region at it's finest of food and hospitality, this is the place. We can't wait to return.
Grazie, Giorgia and the entire La Tagliata family!
