Myself and my partner have just returned from a week long stay in Sorrento at Casale Nunziatina and we will definitely be recommending it. Pasquale provided excellent information before our stay and on arrival. Having arrived in Italy and discovered our phones weren't working we got the bus to Sorrento and then had to work out how to contact Pasquale. After trying the pay phones which didn't seem to work a taxi driver helped us by calling Pasquale for us. Pasquale came and picked us up promptly and drove us up to the apartments. If you read the review previous to this one on here you may get a very negative view. The truth is...yes the apartment is up a a narrow road...but it is a fantastically traditional cobbled street and gives you beautiful views...yes you have to move out of the way of cars and scooters but they give you plenty of warning by beeping in advance so you can go to one of the pull in points to let them pass and yes the last bit of the walk is pretty steep....but it's not that far and its a good way to work off the pasta and ice cream you've eaten! Once you go through the gate of the apartments you are in the most relaxing place ever and you will forget the walk and the hustle and bustle of Sorrento centre. We rarely left the apartments before lunchtime because it was so relaxing and peaceful and we made the most of extended breakfasts of bread, cheese, ham etc bought at the supermarket at the bottom of the hill about 15-20min walk. Pasquale had upgraded us to a bigger apartment with no extra cost so we were in Giglio which is furthest from the road, surrounded by lemon trees, with its own little garden and swinging seat. All the apartments have their own private bit of the garden but Giglio has the biggest. Also making it feel like a home from home for us were the three cats; Peggy, Sparky and the boss cat ( aka Scarface!)along with two little kittens. As a couple who generally like to keep themselves to themselves this place was perfect. We had some lovely chats with Pasquale as he milled around sweeping leaves up or doing other maintenance but you felt like the place was yours. I also didn't understand the comments about the wifi in the previous review. It dropped out a couple of times while we were there (no more than it does at home!) but Pasquale had shown us when we arrived where to reboot it so it was never a problem. Overall I would say if you're looking for somewhere that's great value for money, secure, peaceful and friendly then this is the place. I wouldn't recommend it to your granny because of the walk but for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness I don't think you'd regret staying here.
