Lovely quite and very clean and spacious, away from the busy tourist hubs, nestled right in the heart of local, traditional Italian streets. Yet it is still very well connected with public transport, only a nice downhill walk to St Agnello station. Powerful ACs, TVs and fans in every room, and the whole place overall is very well looked after and updated. The host Michele really is exceptional, going above and beyond to make our stay as enjoyable as possible, a genuine nice guy and role model for Italian hospitality.
This was a seven day family visit, a party of five adults and one child. The booking was made some months previously and the owner had impressed with his prompt, friendly and helpful responses to enquiries we made, from making the deposit, right up to timing our arrival so he could attend the premises personally to meet us. It was all very reassuring. Detailed directions were also provided by the owner (both for those arriving by car and by train) - such would probably be considered most welcome for anywhere in the Sorrento area! Upon arrival, the owner, Michele, gave a helpful tour of the premises and mentioned amenities in the immediate area (he also made regular contact by text and email throughout our stay). Our first reaction to the apartment was to be very pleasantly surprised by its spaciousness, furnishing, decoration and equipment. Photo's seen beforehand did not begin to do it justice. Everything was either in as new, or well maintained, condition and had been thoughtfully and tastefully provided. The three comfortable bedrooms were all spacious and airy with generous storage and each had a flat screen tv and air conditioning, as did the kitchen/sitting area. There was good quality bed linen and towels provided. The two shower rooms also appeared new and there was always plentiful hot water. We could not imagine anyone wanting anything in the kitchen that was not provided. Crockery and glassware was aplenty also. As excellent as the apartment itself is, it has a, literally, crowning glory: the wonderful roof terrace above. This very spacious area is equipped with eight sun loungers and there is also a canopied area with large table and chairs. We loved using the bbq here of an evening with the fabulous views of the town, sea and Vesuvius, accompanied by magnificent sunsets. Absolute magic. From the terrace you can access the roof space, where you will find two washing machines and a large clothes hanging area. You will really want for nothing at La Terrazza. So far as the location goes it is possible to walk into Sorrento but you would probably not want to do this all the time (takes roughly three quarters of an hour I would say). Buses run from the main square in Sant Agnello about every 30 mins (cost seems to vary according to bus company but is just over a Euro). We enjoyed leaving the hustle and bustle of traffic choked Sorrento for the relative peace of La Terrazza. For trains to Pompei etc you can use the Sant Agnello station. If you intend coming and going all the time you may find the location unsuitable if you find walking difficult and you do not wish to use taxis or your own car (the latter would not find much favour with most people in the Sorrento area!) because it is about ten minutes for a slow walker to the main square. We did have cars because we had been staying elsewhere in Italy before Sorrento (and the car parking for La Terrazza is very nearby). If you are flying into Naples and holidaying solely in Sorrento I would recommend transferring between the airport by train/taxi. You are unlikely to want to use your car to get around Sorrento! We would be very happy to return to this property and save for the above comment, I would unhesitatingly recommend it to anyone else.
Located in suburb of Sorrento, this apartment proved to be a lovely base for our 5-day break. We were able to visit Vesuvius, Pompeii, Capri and did some lovely walks. Parking for the apartment is good - unfortunately everything they say about Italian drivers is true! The apartment itself is very clean and Michele was very friendly and welcoming with some lovely recommendations. The weather was a little cloudy and windy so we didn't make full use of the terrace but it had lovely views across the bay and to Vesuvius. Delightful stay.
Because we were meeting friends we wanted a find accommodation where we could have room and be able to spread ourselves out a. It. This was perfect for us, as one of our group has an 8 year old. After getting our bearings we found short cuts and the walk down to the centre of Sant'Angello was easy and not too far. The train to Sorrento or to Pompeii and Naples is very close, there are buses and helpful staff in the travel agency. We loved the closeness of the supermarket and the restaurants.
Michele couldn't have been more helpful. The apartment was clean, well stocked with things we may have needed the first day and the beds are comfy. The terrace on the roof was a great place to relax and the views both day and night were wonderful.
