“Fantastic views over the bay of Naples”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Half way up Vesuvius, we have chosen this B&B to explorer Pompeii, Oplontis and Herculaneum and Vesuvius. The rooms are clean, the staff friendly, and the property has fantastic views over the bay of Naples. Breakfast on the outdoor terrace was a delight. Good location, we had a car but local buses passed by.

Room Tip: All the rooms have they own personality and decoration. We have stayed in the second floor, a bit qu...

This was our first night in Italy. It was nice to arrive at this welcoming B&B.
The welcome was warm, the room was lovely and the view was breathtaking.
Although it started to rain in the morning, we could stil enjoy the view from the closed patio and enjoy our breakfast overlooking the bay of Naples.
We stayed one night but I can recomend La Fumarole as a great place to stay. The location is great for visiting Pompei and surrounding area

I picked le fumarole as a last stop before we flew back from Naples early next morning. What a wonderful place and hostess. At such short notice, Francesco arranged an amazing dinner and had breakfast for us to take to the airport next morning. The afternoon on our terrace overlooking the bay was one I will always remember. This place is unique in its decor and Is a gem. I highly recommend it, I wish I had stayed longer.

Beautiful and well maintained garden, nice rooms, sweet and kind owner and exceptional views from the balcony - terrific! We had a very nice evening sitting on the balcony, looking at the city lights, enjoying the company of the B&B's huge and elderly dog Augustus and listening to a band rehersal (sounded more like a concert actually, well played, guys!) from somewhere nearby. A cosy place to stay and the location is excellent.

We felt SO lucky that we found Le Funarole through Trip Advisor - 2 special nights as part of our 25th wedding anniversary trip through Italy and Greece. Perfect location from which we drove to Pompeii and Sorrento in one day, picked up take-out pizza and wine from the B&B recommended restaurant on the way home, took it back to the B&B and sat out with a view of the Bay of Naples. Then to make it even more special our hostess, Maria Grazia, lighting candles, providing plates and wine glasses, and then bringing out a bottle of wine from 3 generations of her family's wine making - remarkable, romantic and oh so special. The housekeeping was unbelieveable - even organizing our bathroom stuff into a beautiful basket! It is fully equipped (unlike many other accommodations in Italy) and Madonna and Maria Grazia make you feel right at home. Very much enjoyed and totally recommend. PS. Madonna's breakfasts were outstanding :-)

We found this wonderful b&b by searching the web and once we saw the great reviews on tripadvisor didn't hesitate to book it for the first four nights of our holiday. We were certainly not disappointed. our room was lovely, just as it was shown on the website, and the maid kept it immaculately clean, even folding the clothes we had left on the chairs! The views of the Bay of Naples from the terraces are stunning. it was very convenient having the Circumvesuviana train just a 10 minute car drive away and we were able to explore, Pompeii, Naples and Herculaneum. But walking up Vesuvius was a real highlight. The hospitality at Le Fumarole was just wonderful, Maria Grazia is a great hostess and even invited us to an evening at the b&b when she was hosting a christening celebration. We were the only non Italian guests but were made to feel very much at home. Madonna the lovely young lady who looks after everyone in Maria Grazia's absence is just delightful. She couldn't have been more helpful and also cooked us a really delicious meal one evening. Thank you Madonna and Maria Grazia for making the start of our Italian holiday so memorable. We will certainly recommend you.

Room Tip: We chose the Gaia room which had a lovely terrace overlooking the bay of Naples.

A client had recommended Le Fumarole for its spectacular views and creatively decorated rooms.In addition,what we encountered was a delightful retreat while touring Herculanium, Pompeii and Naples with a hostess (Maria Grazia) possessing an unquantifiable generosity of spirit. And inspired breakfasts of her home-grown fruits and locally produced cheeses and breads. Don't forget to a have a conversation with her lovely assistant- innkeeper, Madonna.
in short, WE LOVED THE EXPERIENCE!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Naples room on 2 different occasions which was perfect for a couple.
