On a quiet street about 15 minute walk to the train and bus station with luggage. The walk to the main town centre is about 10 minutes. The villa is located in a quiet area with a school and bowling centre nearby. The Hilton is behind.
There is a small pool and loungers. Also a washing machine and yard to hang it up if necessary.
Wi-fi is only available on the ground floor at the lounge and dining area. There is a laptop that guests are welcome to use.
We stayed in the Queen Terrace 1 on the first 2 nights, before moving to the Queen Deluxe. Another guest had booked the Queen Terrace 1 on our last night. Vittoria gave us the option of staying at the Queen Deluxe throughout, but we wanted the views and balcony from the Queen Terrace.
Queen Terrace has a nice balcony with loungers, complete with that little ‘roof’ to shelter your face. There is a lovely sea view. The room itself is huge! There is lots of space and it could probably fit another single bed comfortably.
The Queen Deluxe is a smaller room on a floor down. It was still more than comfortable for the 2 of us, and had a huge bathroom with both a shower and a tub. It could even fit a massage table as we did the in-room massage (Vittoria and Rosy are happy to call the masseuse over). There is no terrace but a small balcony.
We could hear the neighbours moving in and out of their rooms, but it was not a problem for us. I got wake-up calls from a cock in the neighbourhood crowing at 4.30 every morning; hope it gets its body clock re-timed with the seasons.
There was a decent breakfast spread with bread, cereal, cheese, ham, yogurt, fruit and biscuits. Vittoria and Rosy will help make coffee or chocolate for you.
Vittoria owns the place and Rosy helps to run it. They were helpful when we needed their advice. Last minute, they helped us book a driver for a day when we decided over breakfast to make a trip to Paestum. The driver arrived in 45 minutes. We borrowed a guide book from their well-stocked book shelf to take with us. Because of this day trip, they also helped re-arrange the massage that was booked earlier.
Villa Adriana is not centrally located, but is a pleasant walk to the main town centre. We stayed at Villa La Contessina, before moving to Villa Adriana, primarily for the sea views from the terrace. A lovely B&B to get away from it all!
