La Piazzetta has become my "home away from home"! Valentina, Rosa and Federica are now considered our Italian family. Located in the heart of the city, just steps away from anything on your agenda. We enjoyed and highly recommend the blue apartment overlooking the Sant’Antonino Square from the large French door to the Bay of Naples out the back window. We enjoyed wine, cheese, and salami almost daily from our large private balcony as we planned the remainder of the day. Beautiful fresh flowers and champagne welcomed our visit as we celebrated a special occasion and just days later we were overwhelmed with more fresh flowers, including the signature mimosa blossom, to celebrate Internatoinal Women's Day. I had hoped to bring a flower back to the USA as a momento.
The accommodations were immaculately clean, stylish, and so comfortable. The bed was very big by european standards and provided outstanding rest. The bathroom was large, modern, with a wonderful and powerful shower system and a quality hair-dryer. There was also a brand new wall mounted 20" LCD HD TV in the living area with many channels to choose from. Rosa saw to it that we needed nothing and Valentina went out of her way to make sure our trip was perfect.
La Piazzetta is located in the historic city center of Sorrento, just 2 minutes from all the great shopping on Corso Italia, the unique alley shops, the restaurants and the marina where ferries depart daily to the island of Capri and other destinations. You can have a nice breakfast at the Spinnaker pub, situated right next to La Piazzetta or several other locations just steps away.
Sorrento was the perfect location for our side trips to Pompeii, Capri, Positano and the rest of the Amalfi coastal towns. Having vacationed in this part of Italy a few years ago, I can honestly say, this time was far better! I highly recommend this lovely guesthouse to anyone visiting beautiful Sorrento. The price is outstanding for this lovely property, the location is second to none, and you, too, will want to extend your family to include Valentina, Rosa and Federica! In all my years of traveling, I can not remember crying when having to say goodbye to a destination until this trip. One of my treasured purchases was a beautiful wooden music box that plays "Torna a Sorrento" (Come back to Sorrento). God willing, I do hope to return...
