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

Couple in our mid 20’s – stayed here for 3 nights during a 3 week Italian Tour, this is the fairest way to assess our stay: Good points: - The Villa San Gennariello is a beautiful 18th century building with charm, history, and amazing panoramic rooftop view - Francesco our host was fantastic, informative on arrival and continued to go...

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. Our room was spacious, with lovely furniture and a huge comfortable bed. The beauty of the villa and its garden were only matched by... More

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

We were a family of five with three young children. Historic house full of charm and character (securely walled off from surrounding area) and lovely garden. It was refreshing to spend time in a family home with such beautiful people. Great breakfast and very warm hosts that the girls adored. We used it as a base to take the train... More

Historic ex royal hunting lodge, in the family now for four generations. Packed with historical artefacts. Very friendly owners. A good base for travelling into Naples & seeing Vesuvius, Herculaneum & Pompeii. Just over 20 mins walk from Ercolano & Portici stations. The one downside is that there isn't a lot to do at night nearby.

Wonderful, large old former hunting lodge. Marble floors, large rooms, large bathrooms. Great views of Vesuvius and Bay of Naples from rooftop patio. Family owned and operated. Son Francesco is very helpful and is the manager. Mom and dad cook and clean and help. PS Momma is a terrific cook. Airport pickups at Naples can be done. It is hard... More
