Emanuela & Carlo make this place so great. We were here for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are great and the service is wonderful. The room we had was very spacious and the view was amazing. The breakfasts were delicious and plenty of options to choose from. Unfortunately we didn't try the... More

We greatly enjoyed our holiday at Villa Carolina and found the service and hospitality provided was excellent. and welcoming. We also had our daily breakfast and dinner at the Villa, which we would highly recommend. It was an excellent standard. The view from our balcony was fantastic and not to be missed.

Me and my fiance stayed here for one week during the Christmas period and what can I say... Emanuela and Carlo are simply fantastic, wonderful hosts. We arrived very late at night due to flight delays and were hungry and tired to say the least. Carlo took it upon himself to cook us an amazing meal didn't rush us and... More

Our group of six spent four days here in September. It was one of the best experiences we had on a six week trip from Amsterdam to Tropea. We did have some trouble finding it because it's tucked away on the hillside, but find it we did when our hostess Emanuela found us on the road looking dazed from our... More

The host, Emanuela, was very good in responding to my emails with any questions I had. My friend and I booked the "sea view" room. The sea view is there but at a distance. Room was large enough for 2 people with one king size bed. The views from the patio are marvelous. Emanuela knew exactly what we needed to... More

We felt welcomed and at home from the moment Emanuela greeted us in the driveway. The room was spacious, the beds were comfortable, and the view was outstanding. We had a nice dinner on site one evening and Emanuela spoke fluently in English and in French with the guests. This was our favorite lodging during our 18 days in Italy.

We really enjoyed the warm and welcoming staff! Everyone was so helpful. We stayed with our family, in a spacious and welcoming room. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to visit Sorrento and Positano without being in the center.
