“Gorgeous environment!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2010

Really nice environment. Not as touristic as the other site of Amalfi (like Positano). We had a great time.
Unfortunately the weather was very bad the first few days. The last day was the first day with splendid weather. With bad weather the appartment is not as comfortable and cosy as you would wish for.
Also when renting one of the appartments it should be said that part of the building is permanently lived in. We did not expect this which was inconvenient in the beginning, since it felt like we did not have that much privacy.
Use a small car because the road to Villa Erca is very narrow and steep, especially when you're not used to such roads and you don't want to damage your car. There is parking availabiltiy in the village which is do-able if you don't have anything to carry with you.
The house is being partially renovated which caused a lot of noise in the apartment we rented. Not something you want on your holiday, early in the morning.
There are a lot of dogs in the neighbourhood which cause a lot of noise during the nights as well.
Despite all things we had a nice time but we won't rent this in future anymore. It didn't entirely meet our expectations and what we had hoped for on that moment.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2009

Although the road to the villa is narrow and winding (rent a small car), the atmosphere and serenity once you arrive is well worth the drive. We rented Apartment Capri with a fabulous view to the Isle of Capri and the Bay of Naples. The apartment and grounds were beautifully kept and the beds were comfortable. One word of caution - be sure to use the mosquito tablets at night if you go in mosquito season.
We spent some time every day relaxing by the pool. There is also an outdoor barbeque and eating area available for guests.
Beatrice (the owner) provided some excellent insights on things to do and best ways to get there. The village of Schiazzano is an easy walk from the villa. The people in the village were extremely friendly and helpful, however, very little English is spoken so be prepared to use your Italian phrase book or point. Lo Scantinato Restorante in the village has excellent food and great specials.
There is a local boat to Capri from Los Lobra that circles the island, stopping at the Blue Grotto and and the small marina to allow time to site see on the island. This is a much better deal than going into Sorrento where they will only take you to and from the island. Both Positano and Sorrento are within easy driving distance and well worth the trip.
Overall a great experience and a great location with lots to see and do within a reasonable distance.
