We (4 couples) spent a fantastic week at Calliopes Mansion at the of June. The Villa offers its guests breath taking views of the Sorrento peninsula and Tyrrhenian Sea from every level of the Villa. You can relax by the pool soaking in the sun and natural beauty or relax on one of the many terraces surrounded by olive trees and beautiful flowers.
The outdoor living space is multi-level and is a perfect place to gather for meals and also offers lots of room to relax on your own. We especially enjoyed spending time at the pool soaking in the sun and beautiful views of the sea.
When you stay at Calliopes Mansion, you feel like a welcomed guest in a beautiful Italian home. The living areas are full of art, antiques and ceramics. The bedrooms are large and airy with beautiful views of the sea. The kitchen is well-equipped for preparing meals in house.
You don’t need a car while staying at the Villa. In fact, I would not recommend it as the roads are terrifying! Carmine, the Villa manager, will take care of everything for you. He will arrange tours, restaurant reservations, private transfers and even a trip to the local grocery. We also had 2 delicious dinners prepared by Carmine and his staff while staying at the Villa. Carmine made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. He was always available and very dependable.
We also enjoyed homemade pasta prepared by La Palma, a small store located just as you start up the narrow one lane road that leads to the Villa. We dropped off our casserole dishes on our way out for the day and picked them up filled with a variety of delicious pasta on our way back to the Villa in the evening.
Luca, the Villa owner, was easy to communicate with during the reservation process. He responded quickly to our emails and answered all our questions. Thank you Luca for sharing your family home with us!
I highly recommend Calliopes Mansion for a group of friends or a large family. It is the perfect location enjoy the beauty of the Italian coast and take day trips to the Amalfi coast, Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius, Capri or any other of the wonderful excursions offered by Carmine.
