“A tranquil, private place with a phenomenal garden in which to relax and excellent location for visiting sights.”
Reviewed 14 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

I was impressed right from the booking at the helpfulness and prompt availability of the owner in answering questions about the villa. The owners were extremely friendly and welcoming on the first night, thoughtfully preparing fruit, drinks and cakes for us. Nothing was too much trouble.We loved receiving fresh eggs each morning, and eventually feeding the hens ourselves! The house and parking space is huge and the house is full of interesting period decor. The exotic garden is simply stunning and well stocked with comfortable furniture. You can always find a sunny or shady spot.The countryside location is very private and tranquil, within easy reach (with a car) of restaurants, beaches, Paestum, the Amalfi coast, Capri and Vesuvius, to name but a few visits we made. The only small thing that could be improved is to have clearer directions to the meeting point with the owners on the first night. A wonderful, relaxing holiday which we will never forget.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We were greeted on our arrival with food and beverages, a particularly nice touch after a long journey. Another pleasant surprise was the prospect of fresh eggs for breakfast on a daily basis, which was a great addition to the holiday.

The villa itself is very pleasant and spacious. Of particular note was the lovely garden, which complimented the villa well. There is ample private parking for at least two cars, and the level of security is superb - the villa is situated on a private road behind electric security gates.

The villa is located somewhat out in the country, but is less than 5 minutes by car to the nearest beach, and less than 20 minutes drive into Salerno centre. Giovanna contacted me directly in advance with specific directions to the villa, which proved helpful.

We inadvertently locked ourselves out of the villa on the first day, however Giovanna was very quick to come to the rescue within half an hour, which was very much appreciated!!

All-in-all, the villa very much met our expectations and I would thoroughly recommend, if you are looking to base yourself in this part of the world.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We were made to feel immediately welcome in Giovanna's home. We were greeted with refreshments and the promise of fresh eggs for breakfast! The house was a great size, bigger than we expected, with a lovely garden. The location was perfect for us, close to Paestum, the Amalfi coast, Naples.... so many great places! We needed to leave early on a Sunday morning and it was no problem. You would definitely need a car to explore this area. I would definitely recommend this home.

“Villa Emilia is a large, beautiful, country home surrounded by a wonderful garden.”
Reviewed 16 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The owners gave us eggs that they gathered from their chickens on the first day. They had fresh buffalo milk cheese, tomatoes and basil waiting for us. The home was very big and could have accommodated even more people (except there was only one large bathroom). We were able to wash clothes from our previous days of adventure.

Although it was way out in the country, it was relatively near to Pompeii and Herculeum which we visited. We found a great restaurant called "Papa Vincent's" or something like that. The food and wine were excellent and the atmosphere was charming with covered and open garden dining.

The place was very close to the Amalfi coast and I definitely want to return on another trip to really see the coast.

I am very glad we stayed in this beautiful country, family home of Villa Emilia.
Bravo!
