We had a wonderful stay at this B&B which is like staying with your very own Italian family. Emanuela is an excellent host & does a great job in welcoming you & making you feel right at home. On our first night, we had a home cooked Italian meal on the terrace which was great to watch the sun set over Sorrento. The B&B is on a hill with an approx 30 min walk into Sorrento & you can take the mini bus back up the hill. We loved the honesty bar & the fact you could come/go as you please. The home cooked breakfast with fresh orange juice was also great.

The only downside was the bedding could be improved eg plumper pillows / better mattress. However, the overall experience is 5 star.

What makes this small hotel really special are the wonderful, friendly owners and staff. Emanuela, Carlo, their family and staff offer a great personal touch and friendly service that other larger hotels can't.
On arrival, Emanuela sat down with us to tell us all we needed to know, including giving us a local map with all the essential information and local knowledge.
The room was ideal for our stay, although we didn't spend that much time in it - there is too much to do and see. Our room didn't have a balcony but when we return we would ask for one of the rooms that do. In saying that, the hotel terrace, with its armchairs and comfortable seating more than made up for this and with the honesty bar, was an ideal place to relax and take in the views.
One of the best parts of our holiday was the wonderful meals served on the terrace. The best food we ate during our Sorrento holiday was at Villa Carolina. On request, Emanuela is happy to prepare a lunch or dinner with fresh ingredients grown in the gardens that surround the villa. The continental style buffet breakfast - lots of choice - with the added option of freshly laid eggs and wonderful coffee was one of the highlights of the holiday.
The villa is situated out of town up a fairly steep hill. It is about a 20 minute downhill walk into Sorrento for the fit and able but would be unsuitable for elderly or infirm. We mainly used the local public transport bus which stops about 100 meters from the villa and is cheap and reliable, although it only runs about once every two hours or so. In the evening, when the bus service stops, the hotel then offer a shuttle service into town and a pickup from town. This was much appreciated.
In summary, if you normally stay in big chain hotels and expect their facilities then Villa Carolina this isn't for you. However if you value personal and very friendly service, great food, and don't want to stay in the noise, hustle and bustle of Sorrento then just book this. It's perfect.

This was our first trip to Sorrentoand my wife found this wonderful B&B up in the hills above the city. Villa Carolina was an excellent place to stay. Tucked down a narrow side street, this lovely hous has with a magnificent view of the bay, shaded by beautiful olive trees which made for a wonderful place to relax after a long day of sightseeing. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with great beds and excellent showers (one of my key qualifications). The owners are very accommodating, having arranged to take us to a local restaurant the evening we got there (my wife’s nerves were shot after my speeding around the narrow Italian roads), and helping us work out how to see what we wanted to see of the Amalfi coast. They also own a restaurant down at the Sorrento port, so you feel a bit like an insider when you tell the maitre’d where you are staying and who sent you. At the Villa, if you drive, there is plenty of parking. There is the main house which are rooms and then two suite buildings if you want more room. Villa Carolina was a find, comfortable, convenient by bus to town or by the Villa’s shuttle. And all very affordable. Highly recommended!

What can I say, this is not just a b&b it’s Home! Emanuela & Carlo have created a haven in the hills overlooking Sorrento and it’s almost impossible to leave. Every small detail has been thought of from day trip recommendations to an amazing personal concierge service that Emanuela provides on a daily basis. You can tell it is their passion and how hard they work to create this beautiful b&b. Make sure you try the cooking class with Emanuela & her mum - so much fun creating beautiful authentic traditional dishes to impress friends & family back home.

I can’t recommend this place enough and will definitely be back to see my beautiful Italian friends :)

I couldn’t recommend staying at Villa Carolina more! Carlo and Emanuela were the most perfect and friendly hosts (and Emanuela could also have a career in baking! Her breakfast cakes were ) and the Villa, rooms and surrounding area was stunning! The views were phenomenal and I’m glad we stayed here rather than down in town which was a bit manic during the day. The shuttle back and forth to town was great, but we really didn’t mind the walk down to town. We will definitely want to visit again!! We would recommend going to Il Borgo for lunch on the hill very close to the villa, great food and again the views were beautiful. We also ate at Carlo’s family restaurant down on the marina, Bar Ruccio, and again the food and service was spot on!! We were only in Sorrento for 3 nights so didn’t do so much as it was our last leg before Rome and we wanted to chill out but we went on a day trip to Pompeii and I would highly recommend! Definitely stay here!!! Thank you so much guys!!
