“Magical”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

On our arrival we were met at the train station and escorted to the gated parking area. From there we transferred to a small car driven by Denise's son, Fabrizzi. The road is amazing - it is an old donkey train. The vista from the villa is breathtaking. We are met by Denise and given a complete tour of the property followed by a wonderful mid-afternoon tea in the breakfast room. The villa is over 200 years old and has been lovingly and immaculately rstored over six years with superb results. Our room is fantastic: spacious and exquisitely furnished with Juliette doors opening to the amazing view of the sea and the town below. We never want to leave the window, but the property has numerous sitting and lounging areas, so we venture out for a swim in the pool - also with the same fantastic view.We are delivered back to our car by Giovanni or Fabrizzi whenever we want to go out, (Sorrento is lovely and very nearby) but mostly we prefer to relax and enjoy the property. Breakfast was fabulous: varied, fresh & homemade. We booked only 2 days, but wished we had booked longer. Of all the B&Bs we have stayed at this is the best - a definite 10 out of 10.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

We have travelled all around the world, stayed in 5 star hotels, but we have never experienced nothing like B6B Villa Denise. We have searched for a place like this for ever. Denise, who is the hostess and soul of this place, is a lovely lady who takes special care of her villa and her guests. The place is amazing from every detail. We had a very lovely breakfast with cured ham and fruits, homemade marmelade and real cappuchino. Remember to make your wishes for the breakfast, we choosed the "rustic" one since we are not fans of eating sweets in the morning. So, with no further details, you have found the place to go, this is a paradise. :)

Room Tip: Room "Stella" was amazing!

We had the pleasure staying at Villa Denise in October this year. What a perfect end to our trip to Italy! The villa exceeds the descriptions and photos that others have posted. But what makes this destination magical is the gracious hosts - Denise and Giovanni and the rest of the family. They all go above and beyond to make your stay magical. The rooms are beautifully decorated, very clean, comfortable beds, and wonderful home made treats for breakfast. Why stay in the crowded hussle and bussle of Sorrento when you can be treated with such warm hospitality of this family. We hope to return one day - I think this really was the highlight of my parents trip! Thanks to you all for making us feel like part of the family!

Room Tip: This property currently has 3 rooms available for rent, all of which are equally wonderful

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.
