Having stayed at B&B’s throughout our 15 day Italy trip, we agreed to end our tour at a B&B on the Amalfi Coast and we couldn’t have found a better place to stay. We decided to pay a little extra for an ocean view and boy was it worth it! Positano is infamous for how the town seems to cling onto the mountainside and because of this it is also known for its many countless stairs/steps. La Rosa dei Venti is a short walk from the Fornillo bus stop (if you are taking the SITA bus from Sorrento you’ll want to make sure you get off at the first stop in Positano, at the top of the hill). The room was in excellent condition with a large bathroom and a large enough balcony that easily accommodated a small table and two chairs. We ate our breakfast every morning out on the balcony and used the extra day bed in our room to lay our luggages on. We did have an issue with the bed which turned out to be two twins pushed together to make a double. Needless to say this was not very comfortable and after mentioning this to the front desk they switched out our two twins and gave us a true double. The only other thing I could think of that didn’t go so smoothly was the fact that we had trouble connecting to the wifi in the room, and if the owner’s parents were sitting at the front desk we had a difficult time communicating with them as they knew little English. Other than that we had an excellent stay and the B&B is located in a good spot in town, not too far away from the city center and from the two main beaches. The B&B even offered us beach towels to take with us to Fornillo beach located almost directly below the B&B, just a few steps (around 200 plus) downhill. Needless to say we opted to skip the walk back uphill instead using a small trail that connects Fornillo beach to Positano’s larger beach by the city center. Overall we enjoyed our stay at La Rosa dei Venti and would recommend it to anyone staying in Positano.
