NOTE: Do book your stay in Sorrento, Italy with Villa Monica (Pasquale), right away. Do not hesitate, or you'll regret it! It's been 2 months (we stayed in March 2012), but we had to ensure that we write the best possible review for Villa Monica, because this place is truly awesome and it deserves the best reviews!
Deciding to stay with Villa Monica during our (very short) stay in Sorrento for our Italian Honeymoon was the best decision we made. Pasquale greeted us cheerily as he picked us up, and showed us how the best Italian driver, drives. We were impressed - he has mad skills! He drove us up along a windy road to Villa Monica that is perched up on a hill overlooking the most breathtaking view of the coast and beyond. The room was romantically decorated and two steps from the bed is the balcony overlooking the same spectacular view. The bed was covered with warm, thick and comfortable sheets, lined with fluffy pillows. Looking back, we stayed in 5 other B&Bs during our Italian honeymoon - we concluded that we slept BEST and that we were most relaxed in Villa Monica.
Pasquale will give you all the information that you ask for and give you suggestions that works the best for your needs. He recommends the best places to eat too, delicious and authentic Italian at its finest. Patisserie Monica serves amazing, finger licking good pastries (I loved their chocolate and custard filled ones). His shuttle services between Villa Monica and Sorrento town was convenient, which allowed us to plan and change our itineraries easily around it. Pasquale is your one and only Go-To guy, what he says, goes. Apart from his knowledge and recommendations on itineraries, places to visit and restaurants to try out, he shares with us the most fascinating real life events and personal experiences, coupled with witty humour, like we were long time friends. He is friendly and made us feel at ease, importantly we felt that he really cared for us and was honest with his opinions and suggestions, which we deeply appreciated. We love how he'd always ask us at the end of each day we stayed with him, "Are you happy?", we'd both chime in "Yes!"
How could we forget - Freshly made croissants every morning fills the air, delicious cappucinos, a wide breakfast spread and Pasquale's company during our daily breakfast meals were the best times as well! During summer, we imagine having freshly baked croissants al fresco overlooking the gorgeous view of the coast in Villa Monica, as one of the finer things in life - all this, at affordable and reasonable rates.
We were so glad we chose Villa Monica (the previous reviews had us tempted from the start of our planning stage) and we can't wait to go back. Pasquale and his family are beautiful, friendly and easy to get along with, you'd feel at home almost immediately. It's the best home stay, away from home!
