“A wonderfully peaceful place to stay in Sorrento”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Anybody who has been to Sorrento in August will tell you just how lively it is, Villa Oriana Relais is located just far enough out of town to be away from the noise of the night life but it was only about a 20 minute walk into the main square.
My wife and I stayed for a week and loved sitting on the terrace in the evening with a glass of local wine, looking out over to Naples and Vesuvius, watching the sun set over the island of Ischia.
The breakfasts are fantastic and there's a very good jacuzzi pool on the rooftop patio, which is a great place to cool off after sunbathing, and you can even have tea or coffee brought up to you.
Maria and all her staff are wonderful, and they can't do enough for you. They offer to book trips for you (I can recommend the private taxi over to Positano, Amalfi and Rufello) which pick up and drop off at the villa.
I don't really know how this compares price-wise with other accommodation in Sorrento, but we thought it was well worth the money and hope to visit again.

Dear Chris,

We are happy to read your review.

It is nice of you to take such a detailed and perfect picture of Villa Oriana Relais: the setting, the view, the staff and even the distance from the centre were useful to make your stay so special and unforgettable.

We thank you very much for your stay and thankfulness. We couldn’t expect more from our guests and our work.

Hope to see you again.

Delightful stay. Spotlessly clean rooms. Nice quiet location. Wonderful breakfast served by extremely helpful staff. Walk into town. A piano to play on if you fancy as well. A good find.the owner, Maria is delightful and very helpful as well. May even take you in her car and drop you off somewhere. Very sweet.

Villa Oriana Relais was one of the most amazing places to stay on a whirlwind trip. Being met at the door by Maria and sitting on the patio eating some home cooked cakes while checking in gave an amazing first impression. The views are just stunning, the room was clean and comfortable, it felt like home. To top things off, we got great support getting a resturant booking and Maria organised a pickup and dropoff from the restaurant, we felt special and looked after.

Breakfast was lovely sitting on the patio and enjoying a great selection of homemade produce. We did not want to leave. The biggest downside we only had one night… We will be back for sure

My Mum and I stayed at this hotel for three nights and would very much recommend it. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. Maria met us at the door on our arrival and made us feel very welcome. Breakfasts were great and the room spacious and immaculate.

Only one downside is the hill up to the hotel, but this is fine if you drive. It's a bit of a walk up the hill, but don't let it put you off as the hotel is lovely and the views are beautiful. Peaceful and relaxing place to stay as it's out of the hustle and bustle of the town. Would thoroughly recommend.

An very good b&b experience in Sorrento in the midst of an lemon garden. Superb panorama view of the Bay of Naples, very friendly and attentative staff, clean and well maintained rooms. Breakfast based foremost of a large collection of cakes and sweets was a bit surprising, but ok for a one week stay.

Imagine waking up to the smell of fresh baked goods, fresh coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice everyday...the kind mom used to make or you wish she had. We traveled for a month last year. Sorrento, Villa Oriana Relais was one of our favorite stops. We traveled with another family. Their son had some severe nut allergies. Maria not only made sure nothing was contaminateId she made special cookies and baked goods for him. From the minute we walked in we felt welcome and part of the family. The owners and ladies that worked there really made Sorrento a special experience. So helpful, informative and welcoming. Would recommend it to anyone. A slight walk up from the city - enabled us to see the Island of Capris, Herculaneum and amazing sunsets. Thanks to our Sorrento family

An oasis in a hectic world which is very hard to fault. We were warmly welcomed from the start and nothing was too much trouble for Maria and the staff. Our room looked out over the Bay of Naples and sitting on the balcony in the early evening, sipping wine, gazing across the water to Naples and Vesuvius was blissful. The lemon and orange groves surrounded the villas gave it an exotic feel and walking amongst the trees was delightful. The villa is ideally located within easy walking distance of the centre of Sorrento or for exploring the Amalfi Coast. Transport was arranged to local restaurants in the evening which was a great bonus. You can't mention the Villa Oriana without talking about the breakfasts which were absolutely fabulous and amazing. Everything was absolutely fresh and the cakes were divine, all made early in the morning and some of the best cakes I have ever eaten. If you stay there, try the apricot tart and the lemon and ricotta cake - divine. The staff take great pride in attending to guests and the service was outstanding. They had noticed that it was my husband's birthday on the day we were leaving so they made him a special apricot cake complete with Vesuvius candle and serenaded him with Happy Birthday - a really thoughtful gesture.

Room Tip: All rooms are good but ask for one with a sea view - wonderful.
