Just before reaching Montepertuso lies the small village of Nocelle, a hamlet in the municipality of Positano and the end point of the Chemin des Dieux, the ancient shepherds’ path that starts in Agerola and crosses the Lattari mountains.
Until a few years ago, it could only be reached by a path climbing the mountainside or by the famous 1500-step ascent from Arienzo beach.
Immersed in an unspoilt natural setting of holm oaks, broom, lemon trees and vineyards, Nocelle (the village of hazelnuts) is a small rural village suspended between sky and sea, offering one of the most enchanting views of the Amalfi Coast, all the way to Capri and Punta Campanella.
Situated close to the town center, its strategic position once enabled pirate ships to be spotted in advance, warning the population of an impending raid. It’s certainly the ideal starting point for pleasant walks along the mountain trails: trekking enthusiasts will have the pleasure of combining their passion for mountain excursions and contact with nature with one of the most evocative and exclusive panoramas in the world.
Nocelle is therefore the ideal choice for those looking for a tranquil place to let go and unplug from the stresses of everyday life and experience a dream vacation, a stay to recuperate all one’s energy.
