Area of amalfi to stay.

 A group of six of us are going to Amalfi coast in September....several places we wanted are booked - we only want a place that has three bedrooms - if you have been, please advise which one you would stay in (was told Sorrento or Positano are the places to stay - and only one of these is in Sorrento - is it really a must?) sooooo appreciate any feedback.  We are open if you have a place to suggest also.

Where is best to stay depends on 

1. What do you want to do while in the area? Visit Pompei? Visit Naples? Visit Capri? Then stay in Sorrento.  Or do you want to relax and shop, and maybe visit Capri? Stay in the town of Amalfi, Positano or Ravello.

2.  Do any of you have terrible problems with stairs, especially in the heat? Stay in Sorrento or the town of Amalfi

3.  What's available for what you need?  Try the website Summer in Italy or

You do specifically mention the Amalfi Coast. If it is important to you to stay on the Amalfi Coast for some reason, keep in mind that Sorrento is not on the Amalfi Coast.

You might want to consider M Suites,,in the hills above Sorrento. The apartments and grounds of what was once a private villa are beautiful and would accommodate a group really well. Remember that Sorrento is not really on the Amalfi Coast, but just to the west, with easy access.
