The house on the lake is in a fantastic location right on the water and you have a wonderful view of Lake Maggiore. The garden is beautifully kept and fragrant roses, lavender and hydrangeas bloom on every corner. We were traveling with three teens, we never got bored with badminton, swimming in the lake, canoeing, fishing, billiards and great excursion destinations. Eva, the house owner is super nice, generous, incredibly accommodating and at the same time very discreet.
Una villa incantevole modernamente ristrutturata, dove ogni cosa era al suo posto, un giardino molto ben curato e una grandiosa piscina super attrezzata (sdraio, ombrelloni, ben due docce con acqua calda e toilette, gazebo e frigo per aperitivi!!!) ci hanno accompagnato per sette giorni coccolandoci a dovere.
This place is hard to put into words. It really is another world in this setting. You are sitting with a one in a million view, in a location that is simply fantastic. Natale and his team run a farm producing all sorts of fruits and vegetables along with olive oil, wine, limoncello, you can cook for yourself in the huge restaurant standard kitchen, or you can have his in-house chef make you and your guests a momentous meal. You really need never leave the grounds - we did only because we were attending a wedding in Sorrento. Have the pizza oven fired up and have a pizza party, wal...more
We just spent a week in the house and have had a fantastic holiday. The house, the pool area and the view (overlooking Sorrento and the Napoli bay) is all you can ask for. In fact, it is even better than in the pictures describe it. The owners, Pepe and Sarah, live next door and came by every morning to clean the pool and garden. They were so friendly and hospital, giving us wine, fruit, soft drinks, toys for our infant, and claimed nothing in return. On the last night of our stay, they gave us a full 4 course dinner (italian style) with home made pizza and it was probably the best restaurant ...more
Stefano is the best host in the world and read our every wish from the lip. Highly professional, friendly, gracious and always helpful. We have taken him as a friend in our hearts. Everything was just right. I don't know what could have gone better. The grandiose historical villa, the picturesque view, the location, the cleanliness, the boat, the staff, the cooks etc. and to top it all off, the perfect management by Stefano. We are extremely demanding guests and have got to know the best hotels in the world. That is why we set the bar very high in our evaluation.
We had a wonderful stay at Casa Primavera and enjoyed excellent service from Guido and all his team. The apartment is a fantastic base to explore Sorrento as you are only a few minutes walk to the main attractions. The apartment is modern, spacious and clean offering everything you would want whilst staying in Sorrento. We are hopeful to back in Casa Primavera next Summer again due to the impression it left on us.
Our family stayed at this beautiful villa for a week. It was more breathtaking than in pictures. We held a wedding at the villa Elise was wonderful as were the owners. The villa comfortably accommodated 12. We pinched ourselves daily and it was difficult to leave. Lifelong wonderful memories were made.
We had a very good time in Elmas Villa. The house is great, the view stunning and the team very helpful. Thanks again
Incredible property which is exactly as shown in pictures but better. Views from the property were second to none and was in a perfect location to get into different parts of Ibiza. Would definitely go again.
The location was simply perfect. The private beach and swimming pool were just great for us. We will come back soon.
Definitely the Best Villa in whole Positano, with in door heated swimming pool ans extremely comfortable for 12 adults. The care takers of the house provide amazing service and attention. You also have enough parking space for 3 cars, which is a rare commodity in Positano. Simply the Best ot the Best.
The villa is wonderful. All services are perfect . See spectacular and the swimming pool is perfect. I would like to stay there!!!
Villa Castore was the perfect home for our family visit to Italy. Large, comfortable, ideally located.. it had everything we were looking for. Whether indoors or out on the huge deck space, we had more than enough room. The pool was large and inviting. And unlike many of the rental homes in the area, there was more than enough parking. The owners were attentive to our every need. The athletes in our family loved the spa. And its location made it perfect for day trips to Sorrento, Positano, and Naples. Roomy and tastefully decorated- Villa Castore helped make this one ...more
I hosted my family from the United States , for my wedding in Sorrento . Since we arrived so early with meridiana flight long before their check in time they were super reactive and welcomed us in the villa as soon as they could . Cleaning and maintenance people were super understanding and very very nice and accommodating .(troughout the entire stay).House position is perfect to walk in town ,and enjoy restaurant in Sant Agata.
Our stay was wonderful! The staff went over and beyond to make our vacation an experience we will never forget! The food they prepared for us was the best we had on the entire Amalfi Coast. The worse part was saying goodbye! We would love to go back again sometime!
Une villa incroyable, rénovée (on apprécie la climatisation même si l’altitude permet des nuits plus fraîches) mais avec tout le charme de l’ancien. Les petits plus : jeux pour la piscine, transats, canapés à l’ombre, table de ping-pong, œufs frais du poulailler, légumes/herbes du potager, ménage régulier. Nous étions 12 (6 enfants, 6 adultes) et avons tous passés un séjour exceptionnel !!
Villa Marion is a beautiful home in an ideal location on the Sorrento peninsula. It's very well maintained and the elevator made it ideal to accommodate our elderly family members. The hosts were very accommodating and helpful. The view of the Mediterranean from the rooftop terrace is stunning and our entire group thoroughly enjoyed our time together at this home. The one downside is the very hard mattresses in the bedrooms.
Villa San Pietro is a stunning accommodation which was beyond what we expected in every way. The space was significant. The comfort was extraordinary and the facilities second to none. The swimming pool kept our two children entertained and very sad when we had to leave for home! The place felt very secure with enclosed perimeters which made us feel comfortable with our children playing outside. The villa is a short drive down the hill into Sorrento which meant it felt fresher than the crowded streets of the town. Finally, the owners were lovely, generous, helpful people. They stayed to meet ...more
nice place , in line with promises fantastic wieuw , house with parking and a nice restaurant near by
Book this villa with your eyes closed. I am one of the people that do extraordinary research, read reviews, compare tens of sites before booking a house or hotel. I actually own two luxury hotels, so it means the world to me where to we stay. This place is impeccable. The house is very comfortable, clean, up to date, and they have two lovely ladies that arrange breakfast and clean every day. The owner is hands on, he was present at our welcome and drove us to Capri in his boat. The arrangement of the rooms is very nice for two families. The pool area has a BBQ and it's amazing. I can go on and...more
David, the house manager, was extremely helpful, the view was amazing, the pool refreshing, and the rooms comfortable. The chef made sumptuous dinners and breakfasts. We were 12 staying there and the layout was great. The 4 masters upstairs are the same size, all opening on a terrace, and have connecting doors. One room did not have a direct door to the stairs, but could pass via the balcony to the stairs. Main floor had one master and the bottom floor (with the pool) had 2 rooms together -- perfect for a couple with a child.
We have just returned from a brilliant holiday in Positano. Our accommodation was excellent, very clean, tidy, and spacious. Views were amazing. The pool was an added bonus for the kids and was clean. Our hosts were extremely helpful at all times and reverted back to us very quickly with all our queries. The accommodation is a 20 minute walk approx. to the beach/centre of Positano. Steps challenging at times on the way back up! Nearest restaurant is just up the street. Its called Da Constantino's and food is really good. They also have take away service if too tired to go out after a fun fille...more
This Villa was perfect for our family vacation, 3 bedrooms all with a beautiful view of the ocean. The terrace is just spectaular - you will pay a lot at the restaurants for this view. Yes the villa is high up - away from the centre but it gives you a more "local" experience at the top along with the best views imaginable both during the day and sunset. For those that are not able to walk the stairs down (please do if you are able as it gives you a better feel of Positano) there is the local inter city bus for about 1.6 Euros. The stairs down to the beach square are about 850 steps, yes be ...more
Villa Almond was just as advertised, perfect for a family of 4, beautifully built, well and tastefully equipped, perfectly located to explore the South / East of Sicily, or just to hang out around the pool for a few days. Service (i.e. check in/out, pre-arrival communication) was perfect as well! The only thing that was a bit cumbersome was WiFi, or better, internet connection - very unstable and rather slow - so be prepared to use your mobile data connection (LTE reception was fine) if you want to either get some work done or stream / download video content.
Mauro was amazingly helpful and friendly. The view from the balconies was incredible. Thank you very much. Jason
Nunzio was most helpful with everything from ordering groceries, making reservations and booking rides. He always replied promptly to every email I sent him. The views from the deck are breathtaking … Capri, Ischia, the beautiful water with sailboats, yachts, fishing boats and ferries. It was easy access to the bus line to visit Sorrento and other surrounding towns. I highly recommend Casa Mariavittoria for an unbelievable lifetime experience. ( I stayed there both times I visited the Amalfi coast ) Thank you Nunzio and beautiful Italy❤️
Nice place, great location. But we only stayed one night. We smelled gas in the stairwell on our first day and told a representative about it. On the second day, we went to Pompeii, and when we returned we couldn’t enter the apartment because there had been a gas explosion. The rental agency was quite diligent and found two acceptable apartments which we were able to review. We picked one and then made our way back to the other apartment to get all our belongings at night in the dark, because the electricity was off as well. So I’m not a good result, but we were happy with the diligence that t...more
This is a lovely, spacious apartment in the centre of the historic centre of Sorrento - ideally placed for bars and restaurants etc. The Rentals in Italy team were excellent, as usual. Very responsive and helpful to any request we had. I would thoroughly recommend.
Beautiful views! Cute house, well equipped kitchen. Beautiful bathrooms. Beautiful patio area. Large enough for several guests.
We had a fanastic time at Villa del Mare. The Villa was very clean and comfortable, and the views were amazing. The pool is actually bigger than it looks on the website, but it was a wee bit too cold for the adults in October. The kids didn’t seem to mind though. Davide met us and very kindly bought us some supplies on the first night as we arrived late. He also gave us some very useful tips about where to go and what to do. We’ve loved visiting Capri, Pompei and the beach at Marina del Cantone, but most of all we loved hanging out at the Villa. Very relaxing. There are also some great restaur...more
Very spacious apartment with full and dramatic views over a Positano bay. We loved the terrace as a place to relax. The parking garage with a lift up was a godsend since driving around Positano is totally impossible: Be prepared for lots of steps or use a bus, taxi or ferry to move around the area. Very helpful owners on site. Recommend the nearby restaurant Costanito.
We had a great stay, only wish it was longer. Davide and the team were very helpful and accommodating!
Everything was just as described and depicted online. Location very nice, lots of books and interesting spaces. My only critiques are that the living room space had an odd layout and the main master bedroom didn’t have its own air conditioning unit. Otherwise we absolutely LOVED it!!
This house is very nice, comfy and clean. We loved the shallow in pool, specially our kids. Service/host were very kind to us. If you would like to spend time by nice pool in nice house, this is for sure great choice. Also the beach in walking distance around 5 minutes is very nice. I just have to say, that the neighborhood is not very nice, it’s unclean and poor with lots of trash around.
NICE PLACE , NICE HOUSE. WE WERE VERY HAPPY. the house was clean and had very nice decoration. Also the Andreas helped us a lot and he was there every time we needed him! thanks for the nice memories
This is the second time we have stayed at this villa as it is great for a large group. It is in a beautiful, peaceful location , away from the busier Sorrento town centre but near enough to access restaurants, shops and buses etc in Massa Lubrense. The bedrooms are spacious, there are large communal areas and loads of bathrooms! The tower is also great place to stay - only a few metres from the main house. The only issues to consider are: the kitchen - it is quite small and needs a bigger fridge if you want to stock up for a family group! the driveway/access road - it is quite...more
From the moment we called Luca to confirm we would be at the villa in a few hours we new the level of service to be provided was going to be high. Luca kindly met us on the main road and showed us to the villa as it was off the beaten track (300m). The villa is amazing with incredible views of the sea. Four of us stayed in the villa 2 adults 2 children (9 & 12) and there was plenty of room and a very good size pool. The villa was cleaned every day and beds made all to a high standard. Very enjoyable. A car is a must if you want to visit Sorrento and the surrounding villages / towns.
Had a wonderful stay in Santorini at the Thera King. It is an interconnected (but also separable) set of 3 villas. We rented all 3 for our group of 15. It's a very comfortable place with a phenomenal view and a great setup. Maria (live-in housekeeper) was extremely kind and helpful. Pygros is a great small town and is around a 5 min walk. The major downside is that the major towns (Fira / Oia) are around 30 min away by car, so you can't casually get to them. All-in all a wonderful stay and villa - it's a luxe spot. Cheers!
Villa Mila is a beautiful villa. The bedrooms are nicely spacious and conveniently located. The living room and kitchen are cozy. Outside terrace with table where you can enjoy breakfast and lunch. At the end of October it is too cold for outdoor dining. View is fantastic. Beautiful swimming pool with spacious terraces around it. Garden looks nice with the old olive trees and lawn. This villa is highly recommended for a family with max 12 people. The deposit of €1,000 had to be paid in cash on arrival.
We had a great week in the villa. It is ideally situated in between Cala Moli and Cala Vediella, 5 minutes from Cala Tarida and 10 minutes from the town of Sant Josep. It has plenty of outdoor space and if well furnished
Abbiamo soggiornato in questa bellissima e comoda casa a pochi passi dal centro di Sorrento. Guido e Veronica dell’agenzia sono stati davvero molto gentili, professionali e disponibili. La casa è molto ampia con due grandi camere, una spaziosa cucina, un bagno è un terrazzo che circonda L appartamento. Molto gradito anche il posto auto. Consigliata!!
Great villa for a large party and well equipped. Outside is spacious but with the heat the decking gets very hot, pool is fab. Thank you we had a great week. A recommendation is to go to the local bar (on the main road by the church) it’s basically in the car park but the hosts are superb.
The apartment is located in a condominium with off road parking. It has great access to the harbour and local train station, both around 10 mins walk. Access to the apartment does involve lots of stairs,as as does he walk to the harbour. Great views of the bay of Naples from the balcony. Good outside space though when we where there in October there were a lot of ghats around so couldn't really use it. Recommend you take your own towels as the ones provided were basic. You will will also need to budget 110 euros for cleaning and electric for a week along with tourist taxes. Overall great place...more
Our family loved this apartment- so spacious and the view was perfect. Every room opens to the balcony - half of the balcony is covered so you even enjoy in rainy weather. Perfect location - within 20 minute walk to anywhere in Positano. Yes, it’s right on the road so you do hear the car traffic, but worth it and part of what makes being in Positano so interesting.
Villa was fantastic but needs maintenance as certain items are getting old and not working and based on the amount we paid this should be perfect. Items found - Bathroom blind, kitchen maceraetor, shower heads are starting to rust, kitchen knives all blunt, bed side lamp not working. Villa is not called Villa Bay it is Villantonella. The address given is not correct as the villa is on Via Parisi NOT Via Nastro Verde. It helps to have the correct information when trying to find a villa through mental Italian traffic. Massimo was the best of hosts and his suggestions and attention to our r...more
Locations straordinaria accompagnata dal fascino di vivere per qualche giorno all'interno di una Torre. L'ambiente interno è funzionale, cucina e camere risultano ben arredate ed i bagni nuovi e puliti. Probabilmente solo gli arredi esterni risultano un po datati e necessiterebbero di una sostituzione. Eccellente il supporto e la disponibilità del Sig. Guido e della Sig.ra Veronica nel "coccolare" gli ospiti per le diverse esigenze.
The villa is perfectly located, a short walk to Montepulciano and two wineries. We rented the whole villa for our group and the two common areas were good for our 11 people. The bedrooms were adequate but could have used better linens. The villa needs maintenance. Many lights were out and we needed to ask a couple of times to get the heat turned on. One bathroom had no lighting over the sink for the entire week. We had food prepared for our group and the dinners were delicious. It would have been much easier for us if the management people spoke a little more English as we struggled at ...more
We spent two weeks at Villa Ettore in July. Villa was very well presented and well equipped kitchen etc. Good location for exploring the area. The owner gave us good recommendations for local dining and events in the area. Pool was great. Lots of ants but didn't take away from our enjoyment.
Three generations of 18 met at villa Sistena and another smaller villa close by Sistena to celebrate college graduations, job promotions, birthdays, and good tidings, this year outside the USA, arriving from Edinburgh, California, New York, Maryland, Virginia, and Florida. Despite complicated logistics, the family voted this stay as their best ever--beauty, wonderful Greek hospitality and endless things to do. Our hosts, including Maria and Nic treated us like family and anticipated our needs and wishes always with a smile. Andreas and his team of assistants made the entire week an effortle...more
Superb position overlooking the sea and Capri with beautiful sunsets. Valerio was very helpful and attentive. Nice walks from the house. The house itself is in need of some attention - hot water is limited, whilst the TV gets 100s of Italian channels, in English it only gets BBC World. Some of the appliances need modernising. Despite these few inconveniences we had a great time.
Local welcome much appreciated. Positano is a lovely spot to stay and family enjoyed it, including the peaceful view.
Lovely spacious villa but is very tired and does need a total refurbishment including painting, furniture is old and tired in all rooms that said we had a great stay and the hosts were very responsive and helpful.
My stay was excellent. Mauro was great. He answered all of our questions and was very responsive. He assisted us with transportation service in AnaCapri which was great. The apartment was wonderful. We will definitely return.
Excellent location with large space outside, a spacious veranda and many rooms inside where to read a book or rest in a very silent place.
Although the property was in a beautiful location, the overall experience was not worth the price by any means. The pictures are deceptive, and the place is much smaller than it appears online; the jacuzzi barely fits 4 people, and it's not properly maintained. The place overall was not adequately cleaned (dust in tables, etc). What was worse, was the communication with the Airbnb host. Although I informed them that there may be a 7th guest, I never received a response, assuming it was ok. When we got there, they informed us, that there was a 60 Euro /night additional charge for the extra...more
We came back from one week in Massa Lubrense - which is a very charming and ideal place to stay for a week. We checked in late due to the awful traffic from Naples to Massa Lubrense (two hours on a Saturday night). Overall pluses: - Big house - accommodates 6-8 people easily. - Decent grounds - the pizza oven was the best feature - Walking distance to a number of local markets - this was really a great spot to be located. - Great restaurants 5-10 min walk away - Il Cantucci was our favorite. - Great location to explore Amalfi. - Daily staff - Filomena/Philomena (SP?) and the pool/gro...more
wir ware zu 6 in der schönen wohnung im ersten stock. (laut beschreibung hätten wir das ganze haus für uns gehabt). die wohnung, der pool und die nähe zum meer (10 min zu fuss) haben uns sehr gut gefallen. man benötigt ein auto zur an- und abreise, aber auch zum einkaufen. was uns nicht so gut gefallen hat war, dass wir nur einen toor- und einen hausschlüssel hatten. das auf dem nachbargrundstück immer viele hunde und -haufen waren und die fliegen am poll natürlich auch beim nachbar unterwegs waren. das keine mülltonne in der nähe war und wir unseren müll immer mit dem auto mitnehmen mus...more
We had a exiting week in Mykonos. Panormos Villas is a quiet resort in the North oh the island that we enjoyed a lot. However there are details that don't help to have an excelent experience. For instance, it should have a better breakfast buffet...and don't charge for omelettes or an expresso. It doesn't make sense when you pay 1.000 eur a night. Addittionally, rooms are not well equiped. An iron would have bben of help. I am sure that they would improve and offer superior quality!!!
