Wow, what a view! Bay of Naples and Vesuvius in the distance. Good quiet location with a short walk to the centre of Sorrento. Nice clean apartment. We were lucky to meet their lovely friendly family who left us with their own homemade limoncello! Delicious. Gerardo' s father collected us from the train station and dropped us back to the ferry port. They were so kind and generous.
My wife and I stayed at this apartment with our son for one week on the heels of two weeks in Rome and Florence. The city and the apartment were a different experience altogether. Understandably not as "upscale" as in the bigger cities, it was still very comfortable and clean with a perfect location -- central but just a little away from the busy main streets. What makes this an absolutely fabulous place to stay is the deck --we spent every night out there having a drink and enjoying the view -- and our wonderful hosts -- who provided fresh fruit, tomatoes and Limoncello for us!
The apartment is set in a small development of apartment blocks. The location is very peaceful without traffic noise which is pretty rare for Sorrento.
There is a huge balcony with almost 360 degree views, the master bedroom has another balcony looking out to the bay of Naples and Vesuvius.
There are two supermarkets within 100 metres, these were both well stocked and reasonably priced.
The development is around 600 metres from Piazza Tasso which is the main hub of the town. The return journey is slightly uphill, there is a shortcut through the development which reduces the distance a little.
Gerardo could not have been more helpful and professional. A really great touch was arranging for his father to pick us up from the station; he was there waiting for us even though the coach was an hour late!
Gerardo had arranged for some supplies to be waiting for us - including a bottle of lemoncello, unexpected and most welcome.
I would love to stay there again.
Fantastic holiday, Geraldo was very helpful and friendly. Apartment was great and the outside space was huge and lush
Just back from 2 weeks in this apartment with my family of 5. It is located in a quiet area just a few minutes walk from Piazza Tasso with a super market over the road so ideal for families. The centre piece is definitely the very large terrace with fantastic views over the city, bay of Naples and Vesuvius. We spent many evenings, after the kids had gone to bed, sat on the terrace with a glass of Prosecco, enjoying the warm evenings, the view and the live piano music floating over from a rooftop restaurant a few blocks away. Amazing.
Gerardo and his family are incredibly accommodating and helpful and even looked after our luggage all day on our final day as we had a late night flight out. I would definitely stay again if we return to Sorrento.
Just back from staying in apartment. Everything that you would need for your stay is there. Not too far from Sorrento centre. Two supermarkets on the doorstep. Lovely panoramic views from balcony. Gerardo was extremely helpul with the booking process any emails that I sent him I got immediate reply. Temperatures were well in high 30 degree plus odd day hit 40. So thankful for air condition.
We have just returned from a wonderful week at Gerrardo's apartment. We have been to many self-catering places but this one surpassed them all. The views from the large roof terrace are stunning. I could have spent the whole week gazing out to sea with the view of Vesuvius in the distance. However, we crammed a lot into our week and the apartment was very convenient for the railway station. We went by train to Naples, Ercolano and Pompeii. It was a 10 minute walk from Sorrento back to the apartment and I felt relieved to escape the hustle and bustle of the centre. The apartment is in a more residential area and you get the feeling that area is home to Italian families, rather than just tourists. The supermarket was 5 minutes away and we stopped off several times at Monica's for a gelato! The week was made extra special by the care of the owners. Francesco took us to and from the station. Appolina greeted us when we arrived and showed us where everything was. The apartment was immaculately clean and well equipped. There were ingredients in the cupboard and Appolina gave us some wonderful home grown fruit and veg plus some home made limoncello - what more could you ask for!! Thank you so much - we would love to return one day!!
