We stayed here from 4-15th September, and cannot fault this very special place. Marissa and her family are an excellent team, and her staff complement the family - all are professional, welcoming and friendly, without being intrusive.
My husband had long harboured a wish to visit La Badia - with a particular desire to stay in Room 10bis - and we achieved this by booking directly with the hotel, many months in advance. Our trip was all, and more, than we had hoped it would be.
Other reviewers have more than adequately covered the provision of this lovely hotel. No review, though, can quite capture the ever-changing beauty of the view over Sorrento from La Badia. Early morning mists, signalling the start of autumn; the first woodsmoke of the day drifting down over the cliffs towards the Marina Piccola; the shimmer of heat around the base of Vesuvius and distant Naples; the late afternoon light as the sun reflects off the water and cliffs; the sunsets over Ischia, which would bring a sudden lump to the throat, as one tries to grasp the changing beauty of the day's end. The piney scents, the sounds of cicadas and hens, the refreshing coolness of the planted interior, the pleasant heat of the balconies, the somnolent shade of the hammocks, the scurry of lizards, the great broccoli-like pine trees. All this, with the uncomplicated grace which is La Badia, cannot be captured in a travel brochure, but this is what awaits you as you walk through the iron-arched gateways and into this other-wordly place.
