Relais Francesca
Reviewed 15 January 2008

I went to Sorrento the last summer. I choose this little B&B because was enough cheap but from web-site seems us nice.
The room are not soo large but very clean and comphortable. Around the house there is a little garden with lemon and orange
The service is perfect fot to be a B&B and the lady respect our privacy ( not always in Italy is it).
It’s not in the centre of Sorrento, but in a little town near, Piano di Sorrento. This town is not so beatiful as Sorrento but more quiete. I suggest to visit “Villa Fondi”, a public park with a archeoloigc museum for free and an amazing view on Vesuvio and Sorrento Coast.
Anyway you can go to Sorrento everytime you want. The train station it’s very near to relais and from Piano to Sorrento is just two stops and one/two minutes and the ticket costs 1 euro. The own-lady suggest us to go to Sorrento by foot bu me and me husband are too much lazy to walk for 2 km!
You can take the train also to go to Pompei and Naples. For Positano and Amalfi there is a autobus but the road is full of elbow and if you pain the car yuo can feel sick!
Finally i think is a excelent solution if you want relax,. privacy and good value for money

For any travellers wishing to stay just outside of busy and noisy Sorrento centre, this B&B is the perfect choice. A stones throw from the station and two stops from Sorrento Centre on the train, it is easily accessible and costs only 1 Euro each way (make sure you verify your ticket in the orange machines at the Piano Di Sorrento station otherwise you are liable for a fine on the trains). Trains are at least every 10 minutes into Sorrento although the last train back is at 11.30pm. Taxi's cost about 20 Euro's if you want to come back later.

The Curreri bus stops close to the B&B and this is the best way to get too and from the airport (costs 4 Euro's per person each way). The return stop is a little harder to find but one of the staff gave us a lift in his car to the bus stop on the way back to save us lugging our bags across the town. Trains also run directly from Naples to Piano Di Sorrento.

The staff are friendly and helpful, providing you at check in with any information you might need during your stay, including local train and bus timetables to find your way around. The receptionist speaks excellent English and is available daily from 8am to 12 noon. The rooms are lovely and they are cleaned and fresh towels provided daily. The B&B is surrounded by Lemon and Orange groves and are set in well kept grounds and the whole site is gated which means security is excellent.

Breakfast leaves a little to be desired but this is just a small point during an otherwise very enjoyable stay. I would definately stay here again.

This pension is NEW and the attention to detail is excellent and quality of everything was superb.

Situated in the suburb of Piano the pension is in a quiet road and 5 minutes walk to the local train station for service into Sorrento (2 stops) and service to Pompeii, Naples etc, you can also get the bus.Not a problem for going back to Sorrento for an evening meal or drinks- frequent and two minute train journey.

The lady will tell you it takes 20 min to walk into Sorrento, it doesn’t it takes a good 45 min and it’s down a very busy main road with no pavement in parts and not will lit at night. Get the train/bus

This pension is not for you if you like to be is the busy town etc as there is nothing in Piano, we chose this as all the reviews for hotels in Sorrento they say it’s very noisy and it is.

Relais Francesca offered peace and quiet after busy days sight seeing etc in a quality environment
