What a wonderful experience. We write very few negative reviews because we pride ourselves in doing our research before we eat, drink or stay at a place. In this case, our only concern was that it looked too good to be true considering the accommodations, location and service. After staying six nights, we seriously can’t think of anything but great things to say about our hostess Caterina, her husband Lino, and their wonderful B&B.
The B&B is located in a very nice neighborhood with a great restaurant right next door and the main city plaza is less than a block away. The large private room is quiet and overlooks lemon trees and a swimming pool belonging to the complex next door. There’s plenty of closet space, a safe, a comfortable double bed and a single bed, a desk, free Wi-Fi, padded reclining deck chair and flat screen TV with Italian-only stations. Not being able to understand Italian, we used the TV for music only. The bathroom is typical European (small) but the shower has good water pressure and there's everything you need. The whole place was very, very clean.
Breakfast is served in your own little dining area complete with a small refrigerator, electric teapot and kitchen table. Caterina seems to bake every day so there was a different treat each morning in addition to a croissants or rolls, juice, coffee, cereal and fruit. She also offered to make eggs if we wanted but we preferred to get our calories through Caterina’s baking instead.
In our nearly twenty vacations to Europe over the years, this place is definitely on our list of favorites and we couldn’t recommend it more highly. If you are going to Sorrento, this is the place to stay. I'm sure once you're there, you won't want to leave!
