“Bellissima”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

We had a fantastic couple of days at Villa Denise. The place is incredibly relaxing, the views breathtaking, and the family so warm and gracious. We felt like part of the family by the end of our visit. Molto, molto grazie Denise, Giovanni, Fabrizio e tutta la famiglia!! Gabriella sends baci to little Giovanni!

Service:
Denise and Giovanni and indeed all the family gave the very best of service with a very kind and caring manner. They go well above and beyond the call of duty!

The Room:
A good size, as is the en suite shower room. There were 2 extra bunk beds should they ever be required for family. Spotlessly clean and very effective Air Conditioner by a quiet system. Much needed as the temperature was maxing at around 35c during the 4 days of our stay. No problem whatsoever in sleeping in a very comfortable large bed.

Location and Amenities:
Situated high above Vico Equense with a spectacular view over Vico Equense, the Bay of Naples and Mt Vesuvius. The Patio, Garden and Pool are beautiful and well maintained. The Pool is a good size and must rank high in the World for spectacular views!

Liked best and least:
Best:
The friendly and engaging Owners - they are probably one of the most charming B&B Hosts that we have been priviledged to meet - and we have travelled frequently over Europe, USA and Australasia. They have purchased and developed a beautiful Home and every one of the family engaged in the business is justifiably proud of it and to give you a very personal, warm and efficient assistance. Young Giovanni is a very efficient Taxi Driver!
Least:
Nothing really - although the very very narrow approach road means that the family require to Taxi you about or take you to your Car at the Parking - albeit very willingly. However, we understand that the new wider approach road - which will allow you to bring your car right in to the Villa Denise - is "well on" in terms of completion and should be ready for next season.

Room Tip: We did not see the other 2 Bedrooms, however we would be surprised if they were not good too. If s...

We just returned from a 2 night stay at Villa Denise. What a lovely house with excellent views. Breakfast was great -- Denise makes fresh cakes that were moist and yummy. Denise and Giovanni were absolutely the greatest hostess and host you can imagine. They went out of their way to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. Wished we could stay longer.
Definitely the place to be if you want to see Sorrento and Capri. GRAZIE MILLE, Denise, Giovanni, Ines, Fabrizio, Stefano.....for your kindness.

Hope to see you soon. Pascal, Samuel, Janie

My wife and I stayed at Villa Denise for 9 nights in June. The host family were wonderful and could not do enough for us, we look forward to returning in the future to meet the latest additions to the family! We travelled from the UK by train right up to the local station where Giovanni kindly picked us up for transfer to the villa, we did not have a car and this was not a problem thanks to the free transfer whenever requested. The room, villa, pool and gardens were spotlessly clean and air conditioning an added bonus! We met some wonderful people and have happy memories of lazy days around the pool.

About 7 miles before Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast on the Montechiaro hillside and with spectacular views of the Bay of Naples, sits peaceful Villa Denise.

A professionally restored 200 year old Villa above the town of Vico Equense, it offers a little piece of paradise. Beautifully landscaped with flowers, fruit trees and terraces and very clean and comfortable. The amenities are lovely as complementary afternoon tea or café. Denise and Giovanni, the gentile owners, provide a full breakfast with homemade pastries, help with anything you need, and are the warmest hosts you will find in all of Italy. We thank Giovanni and Denise and their family for their kindness and service. We shall return and we do recommend Villa Denise to our friends.

It is a fantastic villa on a fantastic location, breath taking views!!! We only stayed for one night, I wish we could have stayed longer. It is a perfect base to visit Naples, Pompeii and Sorento by train - because of the free drop and pick up at the train station you dont even need a car! But if you have a car there is a free private parking provided. Denis and her family will make sure your stay is peaceful and they are ready to help whenever they can. We had a lovely welcome cake when we arrived in the evening and very nice breakfast... The rooms are clean and tidy, very homely.
I would recommend Villa Denise to everyone!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great.

In South Africa is the Sun or Lost City. The best seven star hotel all over the world. Villa Denise the same seven star accommodition in Italy. The seven stars: Denise, Ines, Elisabette, Giovanni, Fabritio, Enzo, Stefano + J.G. The atmosphere wonderful. You became the member of the Giovanni family. Relax, the smell and taste of Italy. Go there and go back to your family and you will change your life. The phantastic breakfast is the maximun to say: sweety. Clean everything and wonderful furnitures, circumstances. I think so, that nobody can learn this accommodition, you must born for it. If we could give points from 1 to 10, they got: 16!
