With Italian driving coming as a bit of a shock we were wondering if we had done the right thing as we drove to the accommodation. The B&B is on quite a busy street (by my standards living in the country) but there are secure gates and once in the driveway you are in an oasis.
It was quiet, very clean and comfortable, with much more space in the apartment style accommodation than we ever expected.
The owners were very welcoming and spoke good English and gave good tips on seeing the area and good places to eat.
Breakfast was fantastic with a lot of choice and much better than we have had in larger higher rated hotels in Italy and Spain.
The accommodation is well placed to explore the whole of the area including Naples with or without a car as there is a train station within walking distance with connections to it seemed like anywhere in the area.
Pompeii ruins are within walking distance and were massive and magnificent (as was Herculaneum).
We would recommend staying here and exploring the whole area from here as there were good places to eat in the evening within walking distance and it felt like we could relax and chill in a very pleasant environment after busy days sightseeing.
We found people in Pompeii town welcoming and had an interesting chat with a nun who was very proud of her church and keen we should not miss it. We did pop in and it is very beautiful.
Free wifi in the whole apartment was a real bonus.
I'm not sure I'd drive again (perhaps I'm chicken) as the station was so handy and cheap but the car was safe behind gates if you have one.
