“The Most Amazing Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

This amazing place was the highlight of our trip.

Better then any 5 star Luxury Hotel, Villa Ketty has it all: fantastic sea view, wonderful home made & fresh breakfast, very clean and comfortable rooms but above all... it has a heart. The beating heart of the place is in fact the family who owns it.

We will be back again no doubt, because home is where the heart is.

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.

Room Tip: Ask about a room with a seaside view.

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.

A great week at the Villa Ketty. Wonderful views over the Bay of Naples. Vico Equense is a good location for exploring the coast from Naples to Sorrento - using the Circumvesuviana - and on to Capri and the Amalfi coast. Superb breakfasts set us up for the day and our hosts were very pleasant and helpful.

A bonus was ceramic painting with Sylvie (even with just a smattering of shared language between us). After a little lazing by the pool, a late afternoon departure to see Pompeii ensured it was cooler and we had it pretty much to ourselves.

We stayed in their family room (room 9) and had a lovely time. We were only there for one night but it was a good one - the room (and wider hotel) was very clean and beautifully presented. We arrived slightly early and were offered a drink on the terrace and a swim in the pool. The views are absolutely stunning - the coastline and Vico Equense on one side and Mount Vesuvius on the other.

The family were very friendly and obviously take a lot of pride in what they are doing there. I have never seen such an elaborate B&B breakfast!

One of the best locations we ever been in. The whole family is extremely friendly and just waiting to assist your every need. The location is great both for romantic vacation as well as for families with children. We got there following a recommendation from friends of us, and it even exceeded our expectations. Would love to come back (a pity we had to return home...).
