We have just returned from 7 wonderful days at villa Oriana and I think that visits to this place should be on prescription. The hotel is has many others have written, on a hill overlooking the bay of Naples. Rooms are very clean, beds comfortable and rooms have excellent air conditioning. Some people have wrote about some of the furniture being dated but in our view this just adds to charm and when you learn that each peace has been carefully selected for it's meaning to the family you begin to understand what makes this place so special. The staff are all very pleasant, kind and genuine people who treats each guest as an individual. The environment is one of relaxation, you could stay at the villa all day just sitting on the roof taking in the view. Guest are able to walk a short distance and have free use of a lovely clean swimming pool. Breakfasts are seriously bad for your diet! every day involves a wide selection of fresh homemade cakes, tomatoes, fruit and cheese. Every thing you eat is either produced at the villa or from nearby farms. The location is it's strength and weakness. Away from the busy centre sat within the lemon groves it offers peace and quiet. However, it is quite a walk to the centre and taxis are not cheap. The difficulties of the location is mediated by the very efficient evening restaurant transfer system that is in place. Tips, one visit this place if you need a period of relaxation, two seek the staffs advice via emails about transfers before you visit, three if you re like us liking a drink of tea after 10.00 at night take a small travel kettle. We had detailed instructions about travel before we visited and this helped. On our return to the airport the staff arranged a reasonably priced transfer for us. We feel now that we have an italian family! Many many thanks for a lovely stay.
