“A unique apartment whose location and ambience captures the essence of southern Italy”

Deliberately choosing not to use a hire car, we arrived by plane and bus. Thanks to the careful organisation of the owner, we were met by the managers of the delightful Ristorante Da Francesco in Schiazzano, and had the first of several delicious meals there. Here we were also able to buy provisions for the apartment. Two young guides met us in Schiazzano and we walked the final half mile to the villa with our bags being carried on a small electric van.

We had been warned that our apartment had a steep spiral staircase to the bedrooms, and an even steeper outside spiral staircase to the actual apartment. Fortunately the owner allowed us to use the indoor stairs to access our apartment which, with a small two year old was a Godsend.

Nevertheless this is not an apartment for the faint hearted, or perhaps for families with children under the age of five, because whilst the balconies are safe, narrow and beautiful, the apartment is very high off the ground, so children need to be constantly watched.

The apartment itself is elegant, and has a spacious sitting room filled with authentic antique furniture and stunning books. It has one large bedroom, with one further small single room, a functional kitchen and shower room. Both have good hot water and plentiful equipment. A small issue, given the cost of the week's rental, was the fact that there were no basic foodstuffs available when we arrived, or cleaning materials such as soap, salt, oil, vinegar etc.

With temperatures hitting 35 degrees, the lack of air conditioning was also a issue, but I suspect that normally the apartment would be much cooler thanks to the two balconies, double French doors, and the wonderful high ceilings.

The real beauty of this holiday rental was the garden and pool, both terrific and very well maintained. A delightful outside eating and cooking area, with plentiful tables chairs and utensils more than made up for the small indoor kitchen.

The bus service from Schiazzano to Sorrento and Massa Lubrense runs twice a day. However, Massa, Monticchio, St Annunziata and Termini are all within half an hour's walking distance, as long as you can cope with very steep roads and paths. There are terrific restaurants in Termini and St Annunziata (La Torre) and a decent supermarket in Monticchio, so the walks are definitely worth it.

The highlights? Having a fabulous restaurant (Ristorante da Francesco) just ten minutes walk away, experiencing living in a piece of Sorrentan Architectural history, sharing a pool with only two other families and meeting so many friendly people, especially the taxi driver from Naples Airport www.easyprivatetaxi.com who didn't bat an eyelid when our grandson threw up all over his taxi! In fact, he made sure that he was the person to drive us back to the airport...and guess what....our grandson was sick again!
