“A Sorrento secret!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2009

We have just returned from a fabulous week in Sorrento. The Santa Lucia apartments were a perfect hideaway from the busy Sorrento town. Our apartment was just what we needed-2 bedrooms,2 bathrooms, kitchenette and living area.We did not need a large living space as the outdoor area is so tranquil with plenty of areas for sitting and relaxing and a wonderful shaded eating area. The whole place was kept so clean and tidy and the family who run it are so helpful and friendly. They go out of there way to help you in any way they can. It was like a home away from home except much hotter with beautiful sunshine every day!! The pool was our saviour and the kids made friends with the other families that were staying. The place is very close to Sorrento centre and shops so we would spend the evening wandering through the streets and buying our essential gelato(ice-cream!). We did not need a car as the trains were all we needed to get to Pompeii which is a definite must to see.
All in all we had the most stress free holiday and definately plan to return. We would certainly recommend this to others although we want to keep it quiet as it is a true Sorrento secret!!

My friend and I have just returned from our third visit to Residence Santa Lucia ( our 4th holiday there is already booked.!!)
It is just the most relaxing place ever. The gardens surrounding the apartments are full of orange and lemon trees - and the apartments are so well laid out that there is never any noise . During our stay, the swimming pool was very rarely used by anyone else - so we had it virtually to ourselves .
It's about 8 minutes walk to Tasso Square, in the centre of Sorrento - with lots of great shops and restaurants . If you are self catering, the two shops at the end of Via Santa Lucia provide everything you could possibly want - lots of very fresh vegetables and fruit - the shops are open from early in the morning until late at night .
Antonino and his family are wonderful, very helpful and friendly - and the whole area is very secure and safe for children , the access being via electronic gates .
It is a very easy walk to both the bus station, and the train station - and you can get everywhere very reasonably by public transport .
I would not hesitate to recommend Residence Santa Lucia - having had three holidays there already, and a fourth booked for October .

I have just returned from a trip to Sorrento, Italy. We had such a fabulous time staying at Casa Sorrento that I feel compelled to write a review about the experience.

We stayed in a purpose-built cottage (Casa Sorrento) which is one of four purpose-built cottages on the owner's property. The property is located at 23 Via Santa Lucia approximately 500 meters from the train station at Sorrento (5 minute walk). The proprietor is a man called Antonino Coppola who lives on the property with his wife and 3 kids.

Since there were only three other cottages, it never felt crowded on the property. In fact, having other families staying at the same time was a definite plus. It gave our kids some instant playmates with whom to burn off their excess energy either running around the large garden areas or swimming in the pool.

The cottages vary in size and will accomodate couples or larger family groups. There is a small outdoor pool which is unheated but kept clean daily. There are no close, over-looking properties. The cottage we stayed in was comfortable, warm, and well-equipped (showers only - no baths). The views out of the window are of many orange and lemon trees laden with fruit + the pool and vegetable garden. Although located close to the center of Sorrento (5 minute walk), it was quiet and restful - just what we needed for our holiday.

The weather in April was fantastic. Loads of warm sunshine - enough for us to want to swim in the pool.

Sorrento provides enough attractions on its own to keep you in the town for at least a week. The shopping is good, the restaurants many and varied. If you are into self-catering, then there are two small stores close to the property (100 meters) which sell everything you could possibly want for the week. They stay open very late nearly every day (20.30 hrs).

If you are into hill-walking, then ask Antonino for maps of the marked routes into the hills around Sorrento. This area is absolute heaven for walkers - lots of narrow paths and steep hills with wonderful views. Almost worth going just for the walks.

If you tire of Sorrento, then there are always the standard attractions of Pompei, Herculaneum and a dozen other historical sights. Not forgetting Vesuvius itself.

Another attraction is the good public transport in the area. You definitely do not need a car to get around and I would strongly urge you not to bother. Expensive, difficult to park and driving in Italy is an experience not to be repeated too often.

Casa Sorrento was definitely a real find. Try it. You won't be disappointed.
