I'm currently lazing by the pool, trying to digest the most magnificent breakfast - home made cheeses, sundried tomatoes, home grown fruits (all organic), local hams, honeys, freshly baked cakes, yoghurt pots, chocolate mousses and the sweetest freshly squeezed juice. Villa Ketty is the paradise that the previous reviewers suggested.
We are staying in room nine with our 12 month old daughter, it's light, airy and has the most beautiful sea views. They have provided a full cot and the wooden shutters mean the room is in full darkness until you are ready to rise so we have all slept incredibly well. The grounds are immaculate, and the family take great pride in their gardens - growing much of their organic breakfast produce on site.
We drove from Rome airport, (2hrs 45mins) parked in town (under pizza a metro) and the family picked us up minutes later to take us up the windy road to the Villa. We were slightly concerned that the road to town would be too steep for us to take a pushchair but its absolutely fine. We have done early morning (and late night) strolls to and from town with our daughter asleep in the pushchair, the road is well lit and takes approx 10mins. The little town of Vico is buzzing first thing in the morning so a quick walk pre breakfast helps to alleviate the guilt of eating cake for the first meal of the day. There are also a good number of restaurants within walking distance, from Michelin starred eateries to local pizzerias. Villa Ketty also seem to provide a driver, available 24/7 just to shuttle you in and out of town if the heat gets to much.
We are staying for 8 nights and have a full packed schedule visiting local towns - Pompeii, Capri, Positano to name just a few - so don't scrimp on time and spend a week or two at Villa Ketty.
