Olga's Residence Relais
Ranked #19 of 42 Massa Lubrense B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 June 2013

I found Olga's on owners direct and wasn't really too sure what to expect when we pulled up at 11pm the night we arrived. We were a large group of 7 & managed to fit very comfortably into apartment 'Saturno'. Olga's shop is just over the road and we found everything we needed to put together some authentic Italian meals. Alfonso was a brilliant host driving us down to the Marina del Cantone whenever we wanted & picking us up as late as 12.30am if we wished. The town is really gorgeous, a perfect example of an Italian fishing village. There were several great restaurants down on the beach I'd suggest wandering around and trying different ones out for yourself. Everyone is incredibly friendly and good English was spoken if you're not fluently Italian like me! The pool at the apartments is lovely but we did find it got cooler up there earlier so the private beach was just perfect to relax on until as late as 7pm, so sheltered and secluded you feel like you have your own corner of paradise.

Nerano was the perfect place to stay and we found it really easy to navigate our way around the area, even got very familiar with the bus & train routes. It took us a little while to get to Pompeii (which took close to two hours travelling) but it was so worth the journey, Sorrento was really beautiful & a 45minute direct bus ride from right outside Olga's gates. We jumped on one of the day boat trips to Amalfi & Positano which I would highly recommend- you get off at each town for more than 2 hours & get to wander around at your own pace without a guide & can do as little or as much as you want to. Both towns were spectacularly beautiful. Positano was my favourite & a MUST SEE, taking a walk up through the bougainvillea covered avenues was just stunning. Because there was seven of us we decided to hire out a private boat over to Capri with our own skipper for the day, if you can afford to do it this way it was really worth it as you get the personal local information from the local skippers & they make an effort to do everything you'd like to do. We swam through the green grotto which was jaw-droppingly beautiful. Definitely spend some time at Marina Piccola & head up to AnaCapri, it's a short taxi ride through the town & be sure to get the chair lifts up to the top viewpoint (well worth the 10euro fee) & also visit Vila San Michele while in the AnaCapri area.

We had a wonderful stay, made so much more fun by Alfonso and his very welcoming family. I would highly recommend Olga's Residence to any of my friends/family. It was far more affordable than most places in the vicinity/on the actual Amalfi coast but I felt like we didn't miss out on anything. Massive thumbs up from us!!! Thank you :)

This place is incredible. I found out about it by talking to a local resident at a coffee shop in Montalcino. They have apartments and villas. Very good pricing and great value. The residence is located in Nerano which is about 20 minutes outside of Sorrento. Nerano is incredibly tranquil and peaceful. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway...this is the place. Nerano is much smaller and less busy than Sorrento. Also... a lot of the excursions are done here locally for a VERY good price. You can take boat tours to Positano and Amafli as well as Capri for 35 Euro and right out of Nerano. A lot of tours take you from Sorrento to Nerano either way to catch the boat to Capri or Positano. Olgas also has a pool, private beach, wifi, and transportation back and forth to the beach. Alfonso is incredible and always available. Olga is across the way at the market if you need any fresh Italian vegetables, pasta, limoncello, or wine. I was booked to stay here for 4 days and decicded to stay two weeks because I love it so much here. It is easy to get to by bus except for on Sundays (the times are very limited for bus trips Sunday). You take a bus from Sorrent to Nerano. I highly recommend staying here... I have been traveling for a month across Europe and this place is by far the best.

My husband and I got married in Sorrento last September and I can honestly say it wouldn't be the same without this villa. We had 19 guests plus us and this was the perfect location everyone had enough space not to be on top of each other and privacy but was a great location for either groups or couples to stay and enjoy an amazing break away.

Waking up everyday to the beautiful sunrise and sea view was breath taking. The garden is well maintained as is the pool. You have lovely little shops for anything you need and Olga and her sons couldn't be more helpful and accommodating.

Local bars, beach and restaurants are a short distance away and the free shuttle back and forth whenever you like is a blessing as can be a little bit of a walk.

Sorrento is a around 30 mins by taxi and as a tip ask Olga to call and your get a great discount or the bus stops outside the villa to take you wherever you want to go.

The apartments are like little Italian authentic apartments with everything you need.

BBQ at hand for some fun social times with friends or partners.

Couple of negative the flies and ants are everywhere and air conditioning are only in a few of the bedrooms but stays cool and with the views beach and garden you won't be inside much.

I would go back in a heartbeat and for anyone looking to get married in Sorrento this is definitely a lovely place to start and end your dream wedding.

Olgas residence will always hold a special place in our hearts.

I wish we had booked this place for longer. We had a beautiful apartment that had an amazing ocean view and had a pool that was shared with approx 4 other units. Olga's market was literally around the corner from our apartment, so we could purchase fresh buns and eggs, and whatever else we needed for our meals. Her son's were very helpful, and offered their shuttle (at no charge!) to go down to their private beach. Apartment is within walking distance to the private beach (approx 20 mins), but it is a hike back up!! Also there is a great walking trail across the road from the apartments that goes to historic sites and a private beach. The room itself was very comfortable. There was a lot of honking outside our room on Sunday night because drivers honk before coming around the tight bends in the road, but during the week it was very quite. Highly recommend!

Wow! About 20 of us stayed here for a good friend's wedding in Sept 2012. The Villa is made up of different apartments over 2 buildings, with a gated walk way in the middle. The rooms were all good sized and clean and easily accessible as a big group which was perfect for our needs.
The swimming was refreshing with plenty of sunbeds, and views over looking the hills and sea.
Olga's shop is just over the road stocking everything you need for a self catering holiday & very reasonably priced, we recommend the Lemon Soda, nearly drank Italy dry of that stuff!
We used a local taxi to get around, especially in and out of Sorrento. There is a local bus service but as we were a big group we didn't get to use it.
There is a lovely church near by which is lively on a Sunday but not too noisy.
The private beach is worth a visit and a dip in the sea, Olga's son drove us down to the beach front and showed us the way to the decked area.
Olga and her family were all friendly, chatty and attentive.
Overall a great time away with lovely friends, food, drink and weather - perfect.

We're just back from a two week break and boy what a wonderful place Olga's is. Alfonso, Olga, Marco and Mario were the most fantastic hosts and even though the property is self catering, the additional bonus of the shuttle service, restaurant booking (and shuttling to and fro!) to bringing pizzas to us, booking boats for us to charter and so much more. We booked the Luna apartment which was perfect as it was on the ground floor by the pool and there was nothing we could complain about (other than having to leave!)
We will definitely come back to this wonderful place.!

I really did no know what to expect when i booked Olga's Residence as i was not familiar with Nerano. It went way beyond my expectations. We stayed in the Giove Apartment. It is a modest two bedroom apartment with a good sized sheltered balcony. The apartment itself was very clean and tidy. My only issue was the lack of a mirror in the master bedroom. We were next door to two small convenience stores - everthing you needed - fresh fruit, pasta, yoghurts, milk and beer. Olgas is a good distance from Nerano to walk and to be honest there is NO NEED to walk, Alfonso and Marco drop and pick you up as often as you need for free. We found that brilliant. I liked the location of Olgas, yes you can hear the cars and buses beep the odd time especially at the weekend but its not bad and you do ignore it pretty quickly. The pool is great and the views stunning. Alfonso also helped us when our Sorrento apartment was doubled booked and arranged for us to stay at the Olga Villa - my god that was really stunning and made the holiday. The residence with apartments is ideal for families with children they seem to have a ball in the pool. Without a doubt if you are staying in Nerano stay here it was perfect. And the private beach WOW!. Thanks to Alfonso, Marco and Olga for a holiday to remember. And thanks Alfonso for helping in our time of need. For a great local restaruant ask them to drop you up the hill to Da Donna Fernanda - great if you want to try local fish and veg! Not for people who want pizza this is true local food
