“Delighted with Villa Pollio and Meta”
Reviewed June 19, 2011

We found Villa Pollio on AirBnB. The Villa was wonderful, clean, spacious and a great location. First off we were traveling by rail and the Villa was just a short walk from the Meta train station. Meta is far better to stay in than Sorrento about ten minutes away by train. The town is much quieter, has a lot less tourist and has a nice beach. It is also ten minutes closer to Pompeii. Our room has a basic kitchen and breakfast, snacks and drinks were provided. Our host was very nice and even gave us a bottle of wine and fresh fruit from his garden. Our rooms had a balcony overlooking the street and we spent much time out there watching the people of Meta come and go. Just a block away from the Villa is a small grocery store with a great selection of cheese, meats and deli items. Overall we had a great stay.

Very nice villa. Good apartment with full kitchen, but small bathroom. Very close from train station and bus stop, but not near of beach.

Villa Pollio was the final stop for us on our 3 week trip to Italy. It is listed as a bed and breakfast but it really isn't. That's not necessarily a bad thing but the "breakfast" is what you make in your own room, which contains a small kitchenette. They provide you with lost of bread/pastry products, coffee, milk, juice and a few other things. That was perfect for us but if you're expecting a buffet in the house dining room - it's not going to happen. Alberto met us at the door - a nice guy who speaks fairly decent English. He lives in the house and I am guessing his parents do as well. You won't see them again while you stay there since there is no real reception area. If you have a question - you just ring the doorbell. We were escorted to our room upstairs. It was fine. The room was a good size. The shower is quite small and if you're a large person you will have difficulty getting in and moving around inside.
Overall, this place was ample. It is around the corner from the train station. If this is your first time in the Sorrento area please note that this is META (not Sorrento). If you want to be in downtown Sorrento don't stay here. Meta is just 3 train stops (15 minutes including wait time) to Sorrento. That was fine for us. Meta has the beaches and Sorrento is better for evening/dinner/strolling. So if you want to do the beach during the day and go into Sorrento in the evening - this is perfect. If you want to do the beaches a lot stay here as well. It's also a decent place if you're staying long term. If you're doing the Amalfi Coast you'll have to take the train to Sorrento and switch to the SITA bus line although there are a couple of buses that do go to the Amalfi coast through Meta - check the schedules. Your Circumvesuviana train card will from Meta can also cover your SITA bus fare to anywhere along Amalfi.
Anyway, Villa Pollio is a nice, well located place with little fanfare. It's great for a couple of days or a week if you're not planning on staying indoors. The view is pretty dull. The place basically served its purpose for us. You pay when you leave - in cash.
