I stayed in this historic villa on May 16th on my way to our rented "Trullo" in Puglia and on May 24th and 25th on our return to Naples. We set off from the Naples airport in our rented Fiat 500 and headed for the Villa San Gennariello in Portici,( I was the designated navigator ) and even though we... More

Not only is this B & B a beautiful piece of history, the hosts are warm and welcoming! Emma,Dominico and Franceso made my 4night stay there most enjoyable. A walk away from the ruins of Ercalano and a calm oasis in a very busy town. Excellent communications with the circumvesuviana train that runs along the Amalfi Coast. Yes, the area... More

We have stayed at this residence on several trips to the Amalfi coast. It's clean, incredibly friendly and georgous - inside and out! Its about a 4-5 minute walk from the train station, and worth every step! We would highly recommend it to anyone looking for unique lodging in a quiet but nice neighborhood. Within a short walk are also... More

My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights while doing day trips to Naples, Sorrento, Paestum, Amalfi Coast, Pompeii, etc. The location was great and the house lovely, but our GPS could not find it so we ended up calling Francesco, who came and found us and brought us to the Villa. He and the entire family were very... More

I agree with other comments that area around villa is noisy, scruffy, littered and a bit threatening. But short walk to villa from station and once behind locked gates felt very lucky to be able to share this beautiful C18 villa with its exquisite furnishings and garden and charming hosts. Our room was large with a sofa and access to... More

We stayed one night at the Villa San Gennariello B&B and everything was perfect : since the help we received by Francesco (the owner's son) by phone in order to reach the Villa, to the very charming and big room we had and the great breakfast in the garden. The venue is stunning : it is an ancient bourgoise villa... More

We very much enjoyed our stay. We enjoyed the company of the family and appreciated all the help we received with our travel arrangements. We especially enjoyed breakfast in the courtyard and the beautiful garden which we used as a shady refuge. The Villa is a step back in time to the 18th century, beautifully restored and maintained. Our room... More

We just came back from a trip to Pompei and the Amalfi Coast and stayed at the Villa San Gennariello with my husband. The Villa is a former royal hunting lodge, full of character and history.

We were picked up at the station by the son who spoke good English and was very helpful. We even got a lift to the airport for a small contribution - less than taxi. Wine and canapés not to be missed on the roof with excellent wine costing less than the bottle shop. Historical residence with Mamma catering. Pappa in... More
