This home is located in Sant' agnello close to their center and walking distance to the bank, grocery stores, convenient stores, the train station. The bus stop is directly across the street which takes to the Marina Piccola to catch the boats to the different islands (Capri and/or Ischia) and other excursions. We were allowed to pick the oranges and lemons from the trees for our enjoyment. I made freshly squeezed orange juice every morning. Nothing better I say. The owner was very gracious and willing to help, she was patient with understanding my Italian.
This was ideal for us, just 5 mins to the clifftops and 5 mins to the railway station and shops. Such a wonderful setting in the garden and the owner was so friendly and welcoming. Enough space and equipment to cook or plenty of places to eat out within a short walk.
Superb location. Short walk to the centre with all shops and short walk to the sea with spectacular view. Public transport (10 mins by bus to centre of Sorrento) outside the gate. Train station is a short walk away.
A bright, sunny house with large rooms is in a small private grove of lemon & orange trees and flowers. Quite wonderful. We love the long glassed-in porch with the kitchen & dining area and the outside patio. Angela, our host, is wonderful too. She lives on the property and sees to our every need including fresh pastries each morning.
The house is well-equipped with everything we need for our 10-day stay. Wifi is dependable and easy to access.
Our welcome was warm and informative. It will be difficult to leave this delightful retreat at the end of our stay. Molte grazie, Angela.
The chalet was in a beautiful setting with extensive orange and lemon groves, an oasis of calm, but within a few minutes of restaurants and transport links. Angela and Ambrogio were really kind and made sure we had everything we needed. Couldn't have asked for anywhere better to stay.
We have just returned from Angela and Ambrogio's lovely chalet. We had originally booked in central Sorrento but it was cancelled a few days before we were due to leave. On reflection we are so glad! Staying here was the best of both worlds as we had peace and quiet yet it was close to the train station in Sant'Agnello (5 mins) and had two great authentic Italian restaurants frequented by locals (Il Penolo and ristorante Moonlight) a minute away! There is a bus that goes from the road outside into Sorrento and to the port where the Capri ferries go from. You can access the chalet from two entrances - one next to ristorante 'Il Pendolo' on Via dei Pini and the other near the Moonlight restaurant on via Cappuccini.
It has a fabulous private garden with lemon and orange trees, table and six chairs, sun loungers and a shower in the garden, it is on the site of the Resort Espiridi and for a reasonable fee (15 euros for two a day) you can use the resorts pool in season.
There is a really good A/C which doubles as a heater in winter so you set the temperature to suit you so we were lovely and warm when we visited in March. The kitchen area is fine, big fridge with freezer, microwave and all the gas rings do work, it's just that sometimes you may need to light one or two burners with the lighter in the drawer.
The bed was very comfortable and there is a large wardrobe with plenty of hangers and drawers. The bathroom has a heated towel rail and lots of cupboards and shelves for toiletries, wash bags etc
Angela and Ambrogio are lovely! They made us feel so welcome and whilst they do not speak much English it was not a problem as we used google translate for written communications and Angela arranged for a friend who speaks English to join here to greet us and give us all the information we needed.
Sant'Agnello gives you a taste of the real Italy with no tour groups to negotiate around yet you are really close to Sorrento and the transport links to get to Pompeii, Herculaneum and Capri if you want to explore the area.
We hope to return!
