I absolutely recommend Il Fauno. From the start, Eduardo offers an exceptional service; he met us at the train (no charge), then offered us limoncello and his mother's delicious cake out on the patio. He dropped us and picked us up from Pompeii, and when we mentioned he had a few errands to run, he drove us to the grocery store, bank and farmacia. The walled compound means it's very quiet at night. The beds were the most comfortable of our entire tour of Italy, the room was perfectly clean, and the bathroom had the little extras of shelves to store your personal items plus plenty of hot water for the 5 of us to shower. The kids appreciated that there was English language TV and a great selection of multi-language DVDs (we watched Gladiator :) The breakfasts were lovely, starting with made-to-order espresso/cappucino/latte/tea, etc., then an assortment of Italian cakes, etc., plus a few standards for the North American palate--yogurt, cereal and milk, fruit--plus they offer many gluten-free options.
Another bonus is that Eduardo has prepared a list of recommended local places to eat (pizza at Verace was delicious), where the markets are, etc. He set us up with a tour guide for Pompeii who was an archeology professor at the local university.
I fully and enthusiastically recommend Il Fauno.
