We enjoyed a fantastic holiday at the Villa Panorama. The villa itself was outstanding and the owner Augusto couldn't have been more helpful. He was very friendly, popped in a couple of times and was always easy to contact if we needed him. When we arrived we met him in the local town and he showed us the way to the villa which we were grateful for. We booked direct through Augusto by paying a deposit through bank transfer and the balance in cash on arrival at the villa. This worked out cheaper this way.
The views from the villa are outstanding which can be enjoyed from the terrace. There is plenty of space outside, loads of seating area including table and chairs, sunbeds, comfortable patio furniture and sun loungers by the pool. There is also a sunbathing area on the roof with more fantastic views. The pool was always clean and plenty big enough. The inside is also very spacious with a lot of room in the bedrooms and storage space.
One bedroom has french doors that open on to the pool area. The main bedroom has a balcony to sit out on with lovely views.
Parking is very easy outside the villa on the quiet road. There is then a steep driveway and steps up to the villa. I think you could drive up the driveway but it was just as easy to leave the car on the side of the road as the road is quite wide outside the villa.
The sun is on the villa and terrace in the morning but not in the evening but by the evening we were glad of some shade. There is WiFi at the villa but would sometimes loose connection but was adequate for checking maps, restaurants, emails, etc.
The nearest town is Massa Lubrense which is a 25 minute walk. They have a few restaurants, shops etc or you can walk from here down to the small harbour which is about 30 minutes. The nearest shop for milk, bread etc is in Massa Lubrense. Only about 20 minute drive is Nerano, a lovely small sunbathing beach with restaurants & a couple of shops & a carpark next to the beach.
I would definitely recommend choosing to stay at this villa, it was one of the best holidays we have had.
