We had a great stay at the Villa Saverese! All the reviews are true. The hotel was clean, comfortable and luxurious. We were fortuntate to be upgraded, which was a lovely touch, yet all the rooms are of a very high standard. We had a jacuzzi bath/shower and the bathroom was in marble and very well presented. The room was large and very nicely furhished in a traditional Italian style - the whole villa was in great condition and very well maintained. The pool and gardens were lovely and the photos on this site and the actual villa's website are exactly as it was - really fantastic! The whole experiecnce was very professional and above all personal - Angela and her team did a great job providing local information, timetables and whatever we needed. They could not do enough for us. Angela's cooking is great and her breakfasts a real treat! The villa is a 20 mins or so walk from the centre which we found OK and it helped walk off the dinner. For those who are less inclined to walk, there is a bus and many amenities locally too.
Restaurants in Sorrento were accessible for lunch and dinner and there were some good places near us - especially Moonlight. In town watch out for steep prices and service charges - but overall food and wine were great.
In terms of sites, we did Pompei (via the Circumvesuviana train from Sorrento - worked very well, check times and you're sorted) and Amalfic coast (via bus) - together, both trips were for 11.50 Euros each (2 passes, returns) - a good deal and on public transport. However, in the end we came back from Amalfi by boat - extra 10 Euros each but worth it as bus trip long and winding roads! Spectacular coastline. Did Capri by boat (29 Euros pp return) pricey but superb day out - loved it there., so beautiful. Did Naples - hectic city and quite grubby - preferred the other trips we did. Also did days in Sorrento and rrrrreally enjoyed pottering around the shops, ice cream and cafes. Some good delis too. Arriving we used Sorrento taxis as last train 22.44 and our flight in meant we would have msised it - also avoid station in Naples if you can, esp. late at night! Last airport bus had also gone - so we pre-booked taxi over internet - very professional service - 90 Euros but cheaper than hailing one and nice to arrive safely and have someone turn up to meet you. Leaving we got airport bus back from Saint Angello - last one goes at 16.30, 10 Euros pp, one-way. Very busy, only just got on and had to stand but better than train for us - although you can get Circumvesuviana and then bus from Naples Garibaldi station to airport - but allow time to find bus and get connection. Wouldn't get cabs anywhere - hugely expensive. So overall, a good holiday and a special mention once again to Angela and the Villa Saverese - a tranquil, beautiful oasis with outstanding service - really lovely, would rate this 5.0 for all areas, enjoy!
