“Wish we could have stayed longer!”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

We had two nights at this lovely b&b/apartment - it was everything you needed and better still out in the mountains above Sorrento. The location was amazing and Elena was such a warm and friendly person (very limited English but that never seemed an issue) and it was lovely to try some homemade Limoncello which is waiting the fridge for you :)

If you are using public transport which we did, you have to be prepared for the buses being late/not running etc - however we had no problems and just walked between Casa Elena and S.Agata (25 mins uphill there and 20 mins downhill back - there is a bit of road walking and would recommend a torch) From Sorrento, you need to take the bus for S.Agate via N.Verde to get to the b&b - the tourist info place in Sorrento has the timetable (make sure you ask for the non Amalfi timetable, the buses are more frequent)

As there is the ability to cook we found an amazing fresh pasta shop in S.Agata down a side street opposite the supermarket - a must!

Casa Elena is situated high above Sorrento. The views of the bay are amazing. Elena's garden is perfectly manicured and grounds are impeccable.

The rooms are perfect. The practicality of having a bedroom and a living area was perfect for us. The room was clean and very well maintained.

Elena is an amazing hostess to say the least. She went out of her way to make my husband and I extremely comfortable. We arrived late, after 10pm, Elena was waiting for us. We asked her where to eat and she recommended Il Borgio (which is great). Elena supplied us with umbrellas and then next thing we know her son is waiting to drive us to the restaurant. He then made sure that they knew to being us back to Casa Elena after dinner (they have a complimentary car), We felt that welcomed during our entire stay.

There is a bus stop right outside of Cass Elena. The bus times are not quite what they appeared on paper. I would recommend a scooter or car if you are able. We did manage using public transport and walking however.

The minor inconveniences were well worth it.

I would rate our stay in Casa Elena as the best decision we made during our recent trip to Europe May 2013. This cozy little apartment hotel is one of four units that Elena rents, and is surrounded by Elena's majestic garden. The property sits atop a mountain, about four miles from the city center and from the room you have a view of the magnificent Mediterranean sea, vineyards, lemon trees, fabulous flowers, and Mt. Vesuvio as the cloud cover clears in the afternoon. Our room was equipped with a small and practical kitchenette. Signora Elena, even placed coffee and an Italian coffee maker, which for me, was heaven. I need to drink coffee in the morning. One other surprise this hotel is less than a quarter mile away from one of the best restaurants we visited in Italy, Il Borgo. At Casa Elena we found personal treatment and care for details. Both my husband and I rate this "albergo" as exceeding expectations for the price and we highly recommend it. Siamo molto grati a Elena per il suo servizio eccellente!

We loved our stay at the Casa Elena. It was very peaceful and beautiful. We especially liked that our room came with a little kitchenette and that was very useful for keeping on budget. The garden is absolutely beautiful and the view is extraordinary. We loved waking up every morning to the calling of birds and roosters. It was very relaxing. We wish we could have stayed longer but unfortunately we didn't have more time off. The room was very clean and had all the amenities that we required. As well, Elena the hostess was very welcoming and kind. We highly recommend this accommodation! :)

Casa Elena is a hidden gem located high in the hills above Sorrento. We stayed there for 5 nights with three small children. The kids really enjoyed playing in the lemon grove and using Elena's metal watering cans to water the grass and plants. We also enjoyed sitting on the rooftop deck sipping local wine, limoncello and munching on cheese. For getting into town, you either take a bus which comes around every 30-40 minutes, take a 30 Euro taxi ride or walk. The walk takes arouns 30-40 minutes down a very pleasant but steep hill. I would not want to walk back up with three kids in tow! We used all forms of transportation. I would recommend a rental car if you want to have the most flexibility. Spring is the best time to go to enjoy the fantastic cool weather and there are fewer tourists. A great base to visit Amalfi Coast (150 Euro private taxi), Mount Vesuvius (Train to a shuttle at Ercolano) and Capri (daily boats).

This place is set back in the hills behind Sorrento and has a wonderful view which could be seen from our room as well as the garden where we sat and had a barbecue dinner one night. Elena was incredibly helpful - driving me down to town to pick up my scooter.

There is a laundry room and each room has a small kitchen which is well equipped.

Overall the best value in Sorrento.

One issue is transportation - there is the bus and it goes from the train station (get off at Don Pedro's restaurant). Taxi to the location is around 40 Euro. However, you really need a vehicle. We rented a scooter which worked really well.
