“Amalfi paradise”
Reviewed 4 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

I booked this villa to celebrate my birthday with my friends. There were 8 of us travelling together and we stayed for 4 nights. The villa is beautifully situated with the most amazing views over the bay of sorrento. After a busy day of sightseeing we would sit out and have a lovely dinner as we took in the view. The manager Carmine was very helpful. We booked all our tours before we went out and everything was organised and ran like clockwork .
We did the the walk of the gods followed by a lovely lunch in Positano. Carmine organised a boat trip to Capri the following day which was amazing and we booked the chefs night at the villa that evening. Carmine was the chef and catered to our very varied dietary needs with his culinary expertise. We had a feast!!
The following day we also booked a tour of Pompeii and visited Vesuvius ...again all booked through Carmine.

Altogether we had a fantastic few days with lots of fabulous memories to look back on .

Would definitely come back again

“Location, Location, Location.”
Reviewed 10 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

It is now a week on from leaving the villa and we are definitely having withdrawal symptoms! I could nit-pick and find some minor faults but that is to be expected with self-catering - too many people expect hotel levels of accommodation, which is unrealistic. The villa was very spacious, clean and reasonably well-equipped. All the rooms opened out on to the breathtaking views and that was brilliant on its own.
However, what wins for us was its location, location, location! First, its hillside location afforded the most amazing views over Sorrento and across the Bay Of Naples to Vesuvius. At night, this view lit up to leave us mesmerised. It was just great to stand in the pool, leaning on the side and looking down on this sight. Amazing!
Then it was the proximity of the villa to everything you need. It was very close to Sorrento and just a 10 minute walk from the nearest bus stops and the wonderful little town of Sant 'Agata. This town has everything you might need including some of the freshest food shops and some great restaurants. We did have a car throughout our stay, which was useful with two teenagers in tow. However, if it was just the two of us we wouldn't have needed a car. With the buses so close, you can literally get anywhere on the bus or train, and very cheaply. If its just a relaxing time in a villa that you need then you certainly won't need a car as everything is in such easy reach.
Having said all of that, don't be under the impression that the villa is near a noisy road or town. This villa was in one of the most quietest locations. It is not near any busy road, no noisy neighbours or in a noisy town. The only noise you have to contend with is that rising up from Sorrento a mile away below, but even that was fascinating, to listen to the town at night and hear the buzz of its nightlife.
If walking is your thing then, again, its a great location, smack on a walking route, with Sorrento one way and Sant Agata the other. If going, pick up a walking map from the excellent tourist office in Sant 'Agata.
The pool at the villa was just great. It wasn't huge but big enough for a swim. Just to jump into the pool after a hot and sweaty day out at Pompeii was second to none. We made full use of the pool and it was used to the full every day.
Then we get to Carmine. A great character who will ensure your stay is great. He will organise almost anything. On our arrival he arranged for a car to pick us up (free!) to take us to a restaurant for lunch, which had this fantastic view across to Capri. The driver was the restaurant owner who then took us back to the villa after lunch.
Carmine organised two special events. Firstly he cooked us a wonderful meal full of the local flavours with enough to last us for the following evening. It was the best! Then he organised a private boat trip around Capri with a guy called Antonio. This was a very memorable day, regularly stopping for a swim in the sea and taking us close to all the Grottos.
Finally, Alfonso did a great job for us. His communications were quick and full of the information that we needed. He suggested this villa. We were a bit dubious at first, and it was a little over our budget, but we are glad we went with his advice.
Just a wonderful memorable holiday in a great country where the locals were friendly, helpful and fun!
