My husband and I began our honeymoon in italy with a 3 night stay at this romantic seaside relais in Vico Equinese. The resort was recommended by a family friend and exceeded our expectations for romantic getaway with breathtaking views. The relais has 10 suites/villas and provided the authentic Italian extended family atmosphere with our gracious hostess, Ketty who greeted us with her homemade organic limincello. Breakfast was included every morning and an abundance of meats, cheeses, pastries, a mouth-watering quiche, freshly squeezed orange juice and of course cappuccino was a perfect start to the day. The family also owns the very popular and renowned Pizza Metro in town which provides an extensive menu of all things italian.
If you arrive to the resort by car, you will park at the restaurant and the family car will transport you to and from the resort. (Trust me, your car can't traverse the steep narrow climb to the hotel.) Indeed, this is part of the charm of the stunning views from the patio and pool overlooking the seaside cliffs on the Bay of Naples.
We made a day trip along the coastline to Poisatana, Amalfi and Ravella. Antonio, Ketty's son-in-law and the resort manager also arranged for an excursion and boat trip to Capri which is a definite must-see.
For planning purposes, just make sure you know that if you arrive by car, it will be garaged a few minutes away and it you may need to wait 10-15 minutes for the family car to take you to your vehicle. If we return again, we may rent a scooter for the day trips and to venture to places along the Amalfi coast where parking is limited. We were very pleased with our experience at Villa Ketty and hope to return for our anniversary in the near future.
