Delightful experience over three days with Nadia, her brother in law - Pompeo (both of whom speak English well, especially Pompeo), and her mother Lydia. Lovely ocean view from the terrace. Comfortable rooms all spotlessly clean. Wonderful generous breakfasts on the porch overlooking the sea. The garden is meticulously groomed, as are all of the grounds. No problems with WiFi... More

This place was simply wonderful, and I have stayed in some fine B & B's. Nadia is among the most gracious and welcoming owners I have ever met. The breakfasts were wonderful and varied; at one point we were served local sausage made by her grandmother. The view from the deck is lovely, and the rooms are great. Tip: if... More

First off traveling in South Italy is unlike trips to other regions. There is a wamth and openess from the people rarely found in todays world. That said staying at this family B&B was indeed heaven. The rooms were clean and well appointed with a fantastic view from the porch area where breakfast is served daily. The family is charming... More

My husband and I spent two lovely weeks at La Casa del Gelso. This B&B is tucked away off the main road in the midst of greenery with a beautiful sea view. Our room was very comfortable and tastefully decorated with a homely feel; bathroom was spotlessly clean. The breakfast served on the terrace was ample and included croissants, home-baked... More

The B&B will exceed your expectations. Location is very nice- 10 minutes drive from Maratea. You can also reach this B&B if you are travelling by train but definately with almost no luggage. The owners are very nice. We liked this family very much. The rooms are beautifull, clean and each one has a private small terrace. The terrace for... More

My son and I stayed at La Casa del Gelso on our way up from Sicily to Gubbio. It is really worth a visit and I’ll take the time to comment on location, room, breakfast and hospitality in this review. It was planned as ‘rest stop’ on our way north. We confirmed our arrival and were looking forward to the... More

A little difficult to find. Owners greeted us warmly and were very helpful with information about touring the area. We were happy to find English was spoken but owners were very parient with my husband's attempt to speak Italian. Room was small but very clean. Breakfast was served on a porch that had a good view of the sea. Although... More

Having been a bit disappointed with the commercial nature of the Amalfi coast, this time we wanted to explore the coastal regions south of Salerno, and we are pleased to say that in general it seemed much nicer and more user friendly. We were on a motorbike and at first were a bit worried to see that the parking area... More
