Villa La Contessina
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 30, 2011

The most amazing villa in Sorrento. It is definitely a home away from home.
Central location and easy access to everything.
Anastasia and her mother are the most welcoming and helpful hosts anyone could wish to meet. We arrived with a welcome of Limoncella and pastries.
We had a small Asian wedding ceremony and the whole event was amazing. The kitchen is well equipped and if you find you don’t have anything, Anastasia is always willing to help.
We’ve been to Sorrento a number of times, but it was a first for the family.....they had such a good time that they are already planning a return trip next year
Best holiday ever and the most welcoming people.

Thanks Anastasia!

Everything about Villa la Contessina exceeded our expectations. The location is superb. It is a short stroll to Piazza Tasso, shopping and everything else Sorrento has to offer. Two of the owners, Anastasia and her Mother welcomed us with 3 varities of limoncello and fresh local pastries. We instantly felt like part of the family. Anastasia was so helpful answering all of our questions and even arranged a tour of the Amalfi coast for our group of six.

The pictures do not do it justice, it is absolutely beautiful. All 4 bedrooms are almost exactly the same (bed, size, closet TV etc) except that 2 of them have balconies and one has a bathtub. But I would have been comfortable in any one of them. We enjoyed having our own kitchen and were able to save money by cooking for ourselves. The perfect weather allowed us to eat outside and enjoy the serenity of the large private courtyard/garden. The living and dining room accommodated our group with room to spare.

If you read "Rick Steves" travel guides -- his walking tour of Sorrento is in the same neighborhood a Villa La Contessina.

This Villa really is as good as the reviews indicate! My husband and I spent a week there with five friends and found it delightful. It is prettily decorated with tile floors, vivid colors, comfortable furniture and a well stocked kitchen. The terraces and surrounding gardens are great for relaxing. Anastassia is lovely and helpful and always available if needed. While there is no ocean view from the Villa, a few steps from the Villa gardens, through one locked gate and one locked garden door, one enters a lovely public garden with fabulous views up and down the coast. (Anastassia will provide the keys.). This Villa is wonderful, and Sorrento is a perfect base from which to explore the Amalfi coast.
The Villa also provides free internet connection!

We spent three nights at La Contessina recently. The room was lovely with balcony and en suite and breakfast was provided by a local cafe about 2 minutes walk away (wonderful chocolate croissants and coffee!)The location is ideal for exploring Sorrento, being about 3 minutes walk from the main square, and for trips to Capri and the Amalfi Coast.

Anastasia was really charming and very helpful, giving us suggestions for trips or recommendations on where to eat - and no matter what she says her English is superb and much better than our Italian!

I would definitely recommend this b&b (and it can also be rented out as a whole 4 bed villa) for anyone looking for good accommodation at a great price!

Everything about it exceeded our expectations. The pictures don't do it justice. It's absolutely beautiful. Just beware of the church bells ringing at 7:00am (It is VERY close)

My wife and I were married in the Chiostro just around the corner, and stayed here with most of the wedding party. The place is huge! four bedrooms in the main house and one in the detached bungalo. All with their own bathrooms (big plus!) . It was the perfect place for all our friends and family to meet up and relax and hang out before the big show. It definitely eased some the wedding days nerves for everyone.
Anastasia is wonderful. Anything you may need she can help you with. We can't wait for the opportunity to go back and stay there again.
Thanks for everything! :)
(some the sections for tripadvisor for this villa don't apply. It's a self catering villa, not a hotel.)

We had a wonderful stay in Villa La Contessina in April 2009. We rented the villa as self-catering for our group of two families with young children, and it made the perfect location for our stay in Sorrento. The villa's beautiful enclosed courtyard, patio, and upstairs terrace provided lots of safe outdoor space for the children to play, and a wonderful setting for the adults to lounge and relax.

The villa is ideally located next to Sorrento's old city center and the ferry dock, but yet in a very quiet and private location next to the cliff top overlooking the ocean. The villa was well equipped with everything we needed during our stay, and delightfully decorated to a high standard.

The property’s manager, Anastasia, was extremely helpful, and ensured that we enjoyed our stay at the villa and in Sorrento. We highly recommend Villa La Contessina, and look forward to returning ourselves in the years ahead.
