5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

My niece and myself stayed here late Sept. Eduardo made us very welcome and and gave us a lot of information re the local area... The room and was comfortable and the recommended local restaurant a couple of hundred meters down the road excellent too... We were picked up from and delivered back to the train station with our heavy bags so that was a bonus... breakfasts yummy...

We travelled as a group of 4 friends hoping to see the famous historical sites, experience some local culture and eat well in Italy and we were not disappointed! Il Fauno B&B is about 20 mins away from the airport by road and is well located for Pompei, Salerno, Sorrento, Vesuvius, trips to Naples, the stunning Amalfi coast and much more. On our first evening we were met by Eduardo at the airport as arranged and there was a warm welcome waiting for us at the B&B with home made cake and limoncello in the garden.
The staff of the local restaurants, shops and bars (including the train station) were also helpful and generous with their time and seemed genuinely interested in whether we had a good holiday experience. A thoughtful and personal service from a kind and friendly family. We recommend it and will return ourselves one day!

Wonderful experience in Pompeii. Very nice owners, great breakfast, sweet kittens and accommodating for local transportation support. Really appreciated the maps and guidebooks each day -- and loved the homemade cake in our room the first night. Thank you!

My dad and I stayed here and it was a great choice. We were travelling by rail and the B&B was easy to get to and from the local station with connections for Pompei, Herculaneum and Naples. Eduardo (the owner) very kindly dropped us at the station when we had an early start. The welcome to the B&B was good. The breakfasts were lovely and Eduardo put on a DVD for us of where we were going that day. He also lent us books and binoculars for Vesuvius. Lots of small touches in the rooms that make life a bit sweeter and show forethought. It can sometimes be difficult to find a place with rooms for single occupancy that are not outrageously expensive so it was wonderful to find this B&B. We'd definitely stay here again if in the area.

Good family room, twin bed and 2 singles, swimming pool, small play area for kids. Very nice BB-owner, good beakfast with home made extras as jam, fruit pie etc. eduardo also has a good collection of English books on all relevant sights as Pompeii, Vesuvius, Napels, Capri, Amalfi coast we could use during our stay. Parking on own ground(free), wifi, pool(small, unheated), even kitchen facilities for cooking meals if you'd like. Restaurant nearby was very good and good staff. We were very happy with our stay in the B&B Il Fauno.

This is a fantastic B&B and if you stay here you won't be disappointed. We chose it because of the reviews on Trip Advisor and we agree with the other reviews.
Edvardo and his mother are really welcoming and know how to put the guests first. Edvardo asked us each morning where we were going and then lent us maps for our trip. We had some rain whilst we were there and Edvardo's Mum lent us a couple of umbrellas. She saw our need before we did!
Our impression is that they have really thought about what guests need when they are travelling. It has all the homely comforts in the room - iron, hairdryer, tea, coffee, kettle, Wifi, which often are missing in other B&B's. There is even the train times prinited out for guests. Everything has been thought about. Breakfast is also good,
The only little minus for us was that there wasn't enough shelf space in the room to put things on like the guide books, maps and other stuff that accumulates in the space of no time. But hey, that's just a minor detail and in no way detracts from how fantastic this place is.
Many thanks to Edvardo and his Mum - if only all B&B's were like yours!

Seriously, i can only recommend for all couples exploring the coast, pompei scavi and vesuvius. Inner car parking, good wifi connection, quit area and strategic position - also close to the sea, - well so much to the hard points. Taking into consideration the soft side, hospitality of B&B Fauno is something that Hilton hotels should benchmark. Everything was taken care of. Are you going to Vesuvio? youll get binoculars. Pompeii? youll get a book and guide. youll get recommendations for restaurants, detailed map with tips and locations, if you ask for beaches youll get the best tips. just ask Eduardo!
PS the breakfasts are very cool - they make their own jams and cakes so get ready!
