We have just returned home after spending 7 nights at the Villa Oriana. We arrived after a long, hot journey to be greeted by Magdalaena with ice cold lemonade & freshly baked cake, served on the balcony of the breakfast room, which must have one of the best views ever out over the Bay of Naples. Only after she made sure we were refreshed did the business side of things intrude. This was the way things continued all week. All who work here go out of their way to help. Every morning we left our comfortable room on the bottom floor, with its own patio, to find the most amazing breakfast laid out. Maria, the owner, must be up at the crack of dawn baking each day as there was always a quiche or type of bread & usually 3 or 4 cakes all made by her that morning. Add to this the salamis, mozzarella, fantastic tomatoes & all the marmalades & the lemon honey to go with the little rolls & we had to drag ourselves away from all the delicious food to see the area. All the staff were able to help with tips about where to eat & how to get around. Make the most of the restaurants that offer free transfers. Da Philipo is amazing, great home style cooking at fantastic prices.
The only down side with staying here would be if you have any problems walking. The hotel is up a steep road & if you had to rely on taxis it might get expensive. But for anyone who likes a walk the centre of Sorrento is only 20 to 25 minutes away. I would advise that you expect the buses to be on strike & then it will be a nice surprise if they actually are running.
