In the hills dominating the Bay of Positano, surrounded by exquisitely scented lemon, myrtle and olive trees, Le Nereidi is one of those places which, once you've found it, you'll never want to leave.
Wonderfully peaceful, incredibly panoramic and surprisingly affordable, this family-run B&B is one of the Amalfi Coast's best kept secrets.
What's in a name?
According to legend, the sea surrounding the Amalfi Coast was once inhabited by fifty Nereidi or sea nymphs. Apparently the Bay of Positano was the place these mythological creatures loved best, as it was here that the sound of their song was at its sweetest.
Sun & Sea
They call them rooms, but in reality, B&B Le Nereidi's Sole (sun) and Mare (sea) are apartments: fully-serviced apartments complete with kitchen, sitting room, air conditioning, Wi-Fi, and pretty sea view terrace, perfect for secluded sunbathing and leisurely al fresco breakfasts.
Something special? Book the B&B's "Mare", and after a day on the beach, return to your apartment and indulge in a relaxing Jacuzzi bath
Welcome to paradise
A low-cost vacation on the Amalfi Coast? B&B le Nereidi is the perfect choice if you want to experience this most loved stretch of the Italian coastline, without having to spend an arm and a leg.
If you want to swim in the sea, there's the Spiaggia Grande, the heart of Positano and one of the largest beaches on the Amalfi Coast. If you like walking, you'll love the incredibly scenic Path of the Gods which, from Positano, winds its way up into the mountains as far as the tiny little village of Nocelle.
Time to explore
A great base from where to explore Positano and all the other beautiful little towns on the Amalfi Coast, Le Nereidi is located on the main road of Positano, close to the shops and the bus stop from where to catch buses to nearby Amalfi and Atrani.
For those arriving by car, there's a private car park within steps of the B&B.
