The villa is located in the hamlet of Nocelle (Positano), a prime destination for those seeking the opportunity to relax in peace and quiet, to live a healthy lifestyle and go walking.
Though in the past years Nocelle has experienced an increase in tourism, its inhabitants have made the right decision in keeping cars out of its centre. Their choice was inspired by their love for the place and their will to preserve the hamlet as a pleasant and stress-free space. You can only walk in Nocelle’s tiny lanes!
To get to our B&B you need to leave your car in the parking lot outside the hamlet and go down the lane that leads to the Path of the Gods, downhill for about 70 steps and 150 metres along level land. Once you reach the old water fountain, from which fresh mountain water still gushes out, take a left, go up another 10 steps and a few meters after you will find Villa Antica Macina B&B.
