Villa La Contessina

Reviewed 17 October 2012

What a beautiful villa we were lucky to find in Sorrento. This villa had four bedrooms, each with its own ensuite bathroom. Three bathrooms had walk-in showers, and one bathroom had a jacuzzi tub. Two of the bedrooms had doors leading out to a lovely terrace. An elevator took you up to the second floor where the bedrooms were located. The main level of the villa had an eat-in kitchen, fully equipped, a dining room, living room with flat screen TV, a bathroom with another walk-in shower, and outside a beautiful huge garden area with louge chairs and a big outside dining table under a portico. The location of the villa was ideal, on a quiet street, but within a 1 minute walk to the Piazza San Antonnino, and a 3 minute walk to the larger Piazza Tasso. All the shops and restaurants are within a 5 minute walk. It was also that close to the Villa Comunale with magnificent views of the Marina Piccolo and an elevator down to the ferry to Capri and Naples, and the beach which was clean and lovely with a great restaurant at Leonelli's. The owner, Anastasia, was wonderful and accommodating, and responded immediately whenever we needed anything, and her wonderful mother prepared such a beautiful spread of food to serve us when we arrived. We were so surprised and so grateful after our long flight, and the food was absolutely delicious. We were 4 couples and we all felt we could not have found a better place to spend our two weeks in Sorrento. We would highly recommend the Villa La Contessina and will definitely use it again and again if we go back to Sorrento.

We reached Sorrento on a super wet rainy evening. We were driving and was lost. We called Anastasia for help and she was most most helpful. She knew that we had to return our car to hertz soon as the traffic police will be closing the street towards hertz. She drove to hertz, we followed behind her car. Then we sat in her car back to the villa.

We must had been blind as her villa is just by Piazza Antonino! There is no signage outside her villa so visit her website for more information.

The room we were allocated was near the main gate. It was comfortable and spacious. It was a pity we could not access the garden as another group had booked the main villa.

Location wise, it is perfect. It is near the port and also near the city centre.

The only negative is that our room was near the road and the gate. Hence the traffic was a bit noisy and whenever people entered the villa, we could hear the gate shut.

We enjoyed our stay here and especially Anastasia's warm hospitality.

Book this place now!

This location was unbeatable, and the house fit our family of eight comfortably and without ever feeling crowded. It's perfectly serene and peaceful while still being right in the heart of Sorrento, and the town's highlights are all just a short walk away. A few of our other unrelated travel plans went awry, and Anastasia was extremely helpful in making sure we found suitable alternatives to get where we needed to go. I would absolutely stay here again, and would recommend it heartily to anybody looking for a place in the area.

Just completed a family vacation at this beautiful villa. I can't think of a more perfect location to explore the Amalfi coast. The villa itself is immaculate and surounded by gorgeous gardens. All transportation, shops and eating are a short walk away and yet you feel completely secluded. The owner Anastasia is so gracious and ready to help in any way she can. It just doesn't get any better!

The villa is absolutely beautiful and both Anastasia and her mother provided us a warm Italian welcome on our arrival. We had easy access from the port, just below the villa, to boats to Capri, Positano, and Amalfi, and being in the center of a garden (private) but in the center of town allowed us to enjoy Sorrento's great restaurants, sites, and entertainment. This was a perfect vacation in a perfect location. We could have stayed for weeks!!

Room Tip: We rented the whole villa for our family of 8 and were very comfortable. All rooms are equally love...

My family and friends recently stayed at Villa La Contessina in Sorrento from May 5-12, 2012. We had seen pictures of the villa prior to our trip and when we arrived there it was every bit like the pictures and more. It was located right in downtown Sorrento yet we had complete privacy because of the gated entrance and the tall bushes that blocked out anyone who passed by from looking into the garden and patio area. Every morning we walked to the corner shop and had our cafe latte or cappucino. We could walk to any other part of town as well and being close to the waterfront it was easy for us to enjoy lunch there or hop one of the boats over to the isle of Capri. Anastasia the owner could not have been nicer. Although we weren't expecting anything when we arrived Anastasia put out a beautiful lunch for us at her own expense and gave us a very warm welcome. With its location and amenities I would wholeheartedly recommend this villa to anyone looking to plan a trip to Sorrento. It was THE PERFECT SPOT!
