This is a 18th century villa, still in the same family, now taking B&B guests. The location is problematic-- too near the main roads that run through Piano di Sorrento, and the bell in the village church will get you up every day at 7:15-- but the villa itself is a treasure. Most of the place is original, right down to the huge kitchen (no longer used) with two wood ovens and large stone sinks, and family portraits all over the parlours. The two larger suites are excellent-- we had the third floor suite with private terrace and views in all directions. Be advised that the smallest room has the bathroom across a large hall, and you may be surprised in the morning on your trip to the bathroom by other guests on their way to breakfast. Signor Romano is friendly and helpful, though with limited English, and advised us about some excellent local restaurants which we never would have found otherwise. Breakfast is abundant, if too sweet for our tastes, and served by the dear Filipina helper. We found it a bit disconcerting at first to have her hovering about, waiting on us hand and foot, but the second day just decided to engage her in our conversation, and really came to love her.
