Casa Pendola is set in Agerola in the hills above Amalfi. We were there for a two week family holiday and it proved just perfect. We had a spacious room with a balcony and lovely view over the valley and Bay of Salerno. An excellent breakfast was provided (omelette, cold meat and cheese, homemade cakes etc) and the owners and staff (and their cats) couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly.
It is a 15 minute walk (or 5 minute drive) from the village up narrow lanes, so a bit difficult to find first time in spite of some signposts in the village. There is a bus service from the village but realistically you need a car to stay here. With a car it is the perfect base if you both want to see both the Amalfi Coast and the sites around Naples, being about 30 minutes down a twisty but incredibly scenic road to the former or, in the other direction, about 50 minutes to Naples. Sorrento (and Capri) are also within easy reach. The village has several restaurants, which were a lot cheaper than those on the coast, and although there were tourists about the village feels much more 'real' Italy than the very touristy towns on the coast.
I really couldn't recommend Casa Pendola too highly.

We selected this hotel more or less at random as a base for a week in the Amalfi region. The hotel is located in a small hill village which made a good contrast to the busy tourist centres on the coast. The village was friendly, easy to walk to from the hotel and had useful basic shops and some good-value restaurants.

This property is a gem. Great location and view. Only a 15 minuted walk to center of Positano. The room was very private. We had our own terrace overlooking the ocean. Breakfeast was ok but did not include cold cuts like most Italian hotels. The owner Felix is very much in control and very helpful and quite a character. He also offers to cook dinner for his guests which for us was on Sunday evening. It was a good experience in that you dine with the other guests but I would not do it again, it is way overpriced for what you get, 85 euros for 2 people, much better selection, prices and ambiance in the many restaurants in Positano.

A very simple B&B which we could not fault.
Its a perfect half-way to explore the whole area from Sorrento to Salerno, and perfectly situated between Amalfi to the east and Positano to the west. Irma, our 'landlady' could not have been more helpful. Breakfasts were a delight on the terrace every morning (sure, we had the right weather for it), home made pastries and marmalades were the highlight. Our room was clean and spacious, with ensuite and roof terrace with stunning view over the ocean - great if you want private sunbathing. But there is so much to see in the coastal towns nearby there was little time to sunbathe, and Irma was so helpful with directions, best places, where to get the great value all-day bus tickets, etc.
Its VERY steep in the whole area, dont be put off by the difficulty of manoevring a car, its the same anywhere here!
