Villa Monica B&B
Ranked #3 of 143 Sorrento B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 6, 2013

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Villa Monica in May 2013. We enjoyed every moment of it. The place is located on the hills above Sorrento, and the view from the rooms is spectacular. Is it not easy to find the way by car (GPS navigation is useless there). Therefore, when arriving to Sorrento call Pasquale (The owner of Villa Monica). Pasquale will come with his car and you will follow him. After arriving you don't need your car anymore. Pasquale is operating a Shuttle service between the city Center and the Villa all day long.

The place is beautiful, clean, well maintained and nicely decorated. Is has all the features you need. Note the bathroom of the Vesuvius room is separated from the room (2 meters distance) but it is private and being used by the Vesuvius room guests only.

The breakfast is very reach, unlike many places in Europe.

Last but not the least is Pasquale himself. Very nice person and ready to help in any way you need. If I will arrive again to Sorrento – I will be back to Villa Monica.

This was our first stop in Italy, we book 2 nights, then decided to stay another 2. Pasquale was awesome, very helpful, plus he would drive us in town and pick us up, free of charge. He made sure we had all we needed, even give us a bottle of wine on our first night...because we didn't had time to get one. Free breakfast & cappuccino. The rooms are nice but for us, we spend all our quite time on our patio. The view was magnificent, very quiet. Would definitely return!!

Room Tip: Take the room with the view!!

Staying in Villa Monica was the best decision ever and made our holiday that much better. The view from our room was stunning. Pasquale,our host was absolutely brilliant and went out of his way to make sure we were ok while we stayed with him. Loved everything about staying here. Pasquale had a great shuttle service with lots of times for dropping off and picking up his guests as this b&b is out of the main noisy hustle and bustle of Sorrento. The breakfast was tasty and the staff friendly and it was a lovely atmosphere and the other guests were as happy as us and very friendly. I would recommend Villa Monica to everyone as I don't think our holiday would have been as good if we had been anywhere else. Pasquale gives you suggestions on what's best to do and is so helpful. Don't miss out on staying at this gorgeous villa.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony to have the most stunning views.

Pasquale (the inn keeper), his wife and the staff of Villa Monica could not have been more helpful to us when we stayed at this beautiful bed and breakfast located in a prime location in the verdant hills, just above Sorrento town. This bed and breakfast was spotlessly clean, the room spacious and there were spectacular views from the room's balcony overlooking the bay and the town of Sorrento. Don't let the fact that its location, being up above the town, put you off. Pasquale runs a very regular shuttle service to and from the centre of Sorrento, and he is more than willing to be flexible if you wished to come back later than planned. It's also nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of busy Sorrento, and you'll thank your lucky stars that you didn't stay in Sorrento town. Pasquale provides insider tips and the lowdown on regional trips, best restaurants and local events; he'll even go the extra mile, e.g., keeping you updated on weather reports and even if there's a strike at the train station! He also plays the guitar (but that's for another review!!).
We would even go so far as to say that our stay at Villa Monica made our holiday in Italy very special; a home from home, where you can get to know local people and acquire local knowledge of the area. You won't regret staying at this bed and breakfast.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony. This way, you have a superb vista overlooking the bay and Sorrento.

We spent 4 nights at the lovely Villa Monica in mid-May. Initially, I was a little concerned about staying out of town, but need not have been because Pasquale provided an excellent and reliable shuttle service to the town. We actually enjoyed the drive down the road each day. The room was very pretty with its own balcony, and the bedding, towels and dressing gowns were all high quality. Pasquale was an excellent host and sorted us out with a reasonably priced taxi to Naples on our final day. I am so glad we decided to stay here and hope to return sometime soon.

We enjoyed our stay in Villa Monica and were really surprised by the personal and seamless service we got. There are only four rooms at the hotel, and we stayed at the Vesuvius room with a perfect view. Just sitting on the terrace in the evening was wonderful. The breakfast was superb, and it was nice being able to sit in the common room enjoying free wines. There is also a free wi-fi and a computer for guests.
Villa Monica is situated up in the hills above Sorrento, therefore the spectacular view, but that also means that you are depending on transport to and from the hotel to town. This is not at all a problem because of the frequent and punctual shuttle service by Pasquale, the remarkable hotel owner. Pasquale also recommended very good restaurants and beaches to explore and provided all the information we needed, it was like having a private butler.
We traveled to Amalfi, Capri, Pompeii and Vesuvius but on the top of our list are our hiking tours around the hills surrounding Sorrento. If you like hiking, you can easily start from Villa Monica. A hiking map of the Sorrento peninsula is available at the tourist office in center. Some of the tracks may be difficult to find, which just adds some fun to the adventure, but others are quite obvious.
Villa Monica is a gem, Pasquale is the perfect host.
We are looking forward to visit our house in Italy again.

My wife and I stayed at the Villa Monica for 8 wonderful days. It was the perfect place to decompress after the hustle and bustle of Rome, Florence and Venice. Pasquale picked us up at the train station and was a phenomenal host for us. He provided the best breakfast with delectable pastries and fresh squeezed orange juice among many other choices, the perfect start to the day. The balcony with its view of Mt. Vesuvius and over look of the city was breath taking. The Villa being a little out of town was no problem as Pasquale provide transportation back and forth to meet any schedule. We hope to return.
