“Excellent, spacious accommodation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

When I made the booking online, Alberto immediately contacted me to ask if I needed help with anything. We were able to park our rental car behind the villa and left it there for our four day stay, as we did all our traveling by public transport for our time around Sorrento.
The rooms were clean and spacious and included a breakfast with choice and Alberto asked if there was anything else we wanted. He was very helpful in giving suggestions and directions.

Room Tip: Our apartment had two double beds in two different rooms, so perfect for a family. The stove was goo...

We were greeted by Albert when we arrived who couldn't have been more helpful. In our room we were supplied fresh cherries and a basket of breakfast things to enjoy at our leisure. The room was huge with our own dinning table, kitchen area, bathroom and bed - it felt like we were renting a villa. Just a couple of mintues walk from the train station, the villa was ideal for exploring Pompei, Sorrento, Herculaneum and Naples on the cheap and frequent train service that was just a few minutes away (there was no noise from the train at all). A few minutes walk from the villa is Meta beach which is beautiful and a great way to cool off after a busy day exploring.

We really enjoyed our stay in Meta. The accommodation was a large double room with balcony and a bathroom and kitchenette - all spotlessly clean and bright and airy. The owners are very friendly and helpful. They tidied the room every day.

We visited Herculaneum and Pompeii and also Naples and Sorrento by the local train which is a very short walk from the villa. Meta is still an authentic village and only just beginning to gear up for tourism, which we liked. There are good cafes, restaurants and shops within a few minutes walk and popular beaches.

If you are tired of hotels and what you get (or don't get) for your money, I would highly recommend this place. Meta is a beach town near Sorrento (3 train stops). Villa Pollio is so close to the train....from the circumvesuviana stop, turn right and take the stairs down on the right. On the other side of the little tunnel under the tracks, you will see an Italia Post office sign, villa pollio is right beside it. There is also an ATM at the post office, very handy. Its a fantastic location if you have a lot of luggage. The beach is probably 10 to 15 minutes down the hill, walking. Albert is a huge help with directions and things to do in the area.

You get internet and a little kitchenette to make your own tea and coffee, along with mini fridge stocked with water, milk and juice. The room is large and the bathroom has many shelves to put your toiletries (Italian hotels don't have this). The bed was comfortable with great pillows for a great sleep.

I would stay here time and time again, very highly recommended!

I stayed here with a friend while touring the area. We were given a very warm welcome by the owners. Albert was so helpful in every respect. All local information was very readily available.
Our rooms were very very comfortable and with everything we needed for our Italian breakfast. The villa is in a perfect location for all the local sights, and local restaurants were recommended to us.

A very friendly and warm welcome by Albert, nice room, very clean. We used it as base for our daytrips to various places. Meta is very quiet (at least at this time of the year, beginning of May). So we enjoyed our stay at Villa Pollio! Would come back any time!!

We loved our stay here. It was the highlight of our 3 weeks in Italy. Villa Polllo is a clean, comfortable and quiet apartment 5 minutes walk to the beach in Meta and 2 min to the Cirumvesuviana train line. The beach is quite, and away from the maddening crowds. The owner Albert is very helpful and the room was clean and a good size. Took 1 night to get used to the harder bed - but we are a bit soft these days. Breakfast is typical standard Italian fare, with biscuits, yoghurt and cereal supplied. Also, there are a variety of fantastic little shops to get groceries from. Day trips to Naples and Pompei very easy on the Cirumvesuviana (train line). We also walked to Sorrento a couple of times when we missed the last train - safe walk only took 50 minutes (up hill). If the crowds of Sorrento are likely to drive you nuts, then quiet, sleepy Meta is your best bet.
