“Magical Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

We spent a magical Honeymoon here. We had been looking in the Sorrento/Amalfi area and as Positano was really expensive, my husband to be looked in a search engine for a place in this area which had a pool, catered for diabetec and gluten intolerance diets and came up with Torricello as an option - I couldn't be more delighted with his choice. I love Italy and this place gave us a more intimate experience of Italy than your typical tourist resorts. Marco was attentive to your every need and gave us loads of useful information on the area (including best days to visit Pompeii, Herculaneum and Vesuvius to avoid the heavy traffic). Torricella itself was like a secret hideaway, beautiful setting with views overlooking the bay of Naples and Vesuvius. Large rooms with an old world decor to match the history of the building, Ensuite bathroom to die for! - far bigger than our main bathrooom at home, grounds that you could explore and keep finding another wee corner, swimming pool set in the grounds that was just a perfect size. And the breakfast - or should I say morning banquet! - was delicious and set us up for the day not really needing anything else till our evening meal. I could go on and on, but to sum up - an absolutely beautiful Italian secret hideaway that we will be sure to return to another day

and a wee ps - I would have happily paid more, but the value for money was amazing too

Room Tip: The room we had was the double with its own private en suite and was gorgeous, but we saw a couple o...
