“A beautiful stay near Sorrento”
Reviewed September 29, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This is a great place if you want to be able to visit all the attractions on the Amalfi but don't want the noise and hustle of staying in the towns. The accomodation is set high on the hills behind Sorrento. The views are superb. It is very well set up and we had everything we needed. Public transport was available to take us into Sorrento or Amalfi but!!! The vagaries of the Italian bus system from where to buy tickets,which bus to catch and even where to stand to catch it all required help from friendly locals. Undoubtedly the best part of Casa Fanella is Stefania, the host. She met us upon arrival and with her lovely, happy personality answered every question we had. She was always available. Be aware that the parking space provided is more for smaller vehicles and take care driving along the Amalfi.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed April 4, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Stayed at Casa Fanella with Husband and 2 teenage children. The apartment was spacious, spotlessly clean and very well equipped, particularly the kitchen which has every pot and utensil you could need plus basic ingredients so cooking at the apartment was not a problem. All cleaning products are also provided, even toilet rolls!
There is lots of storage space and we found the beds very comfortable. Good wifi.
The apartment is situated at the end of a narrow private road, with private parking and in a fabulous position for exploring all the sites, but the temptation is to just stay at the apartment and soak up the views which are stunning!
You do need a small car (not wide) and you have to cross your fingers that you don't meet an oncoming car on the approach to the house, but I'm sure the other residents are quite used to this scenario!
Stefania and her Husband were fabulous hosts, even taking us to a small supermarket at 8pm on our way to the apartment to grab some essentials. The gift of a La Colomba cake was a lovely touch.
We would definitely stay here again.

“Fantastic place to stay on outskirts of Sorrento”
Reviewed October 29, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This is a great apartment situated in a private road. The view from the apartment and own private large garden is vast. You can see over the bay of Naples ,Vesuvius and the nearby hills.. The apartment has all the essential you need . The double bed was very comfortable .. You can use public transport to get around to all the tourist attractions. A car is useful but not necessary.
Our host provided lots of useful information they were very helpful and available during our stay to answer any questions.
A very easy and comfortable stay

What a stunning find this beautiful apartment was!! Our gorgeous hostess, Stefania, arranged to meet us at a local restaurant so that she could show us around the accomodation, answering any questions we might have at the same time. I would just like to stress at this point how fantastic she was-before we even flew over to Sorrento, she sent us lots of information about the area, places of interest to visit, restaurants we may like to eat at, shops we could use, and routes for driving in the area and from the airport. This was so unexpected, and really helpful when planning our holiday.The apartment is at the lower levels of quite a steep, narrow road so we were glad to have only hired a small car! It has it's own covered parking space right next to the property. Entrance through the large garden is via an electric gate, so security is excellent. We were delighted by the most incredible views over the villages and towns in the valley below, with Mount Vesuvius clearly in the distance, and the blue Mediterranean Sea between the hills. There is lots of outdoor seating positioned in various locations, so we could have the sun on us all day if we wanted! Inside, the apartment is lovely. Entrance is straight into the lounge area, with flat screen TV and free wi-fi. To the left is the kitchen/breakfast room which has the most amazing sliding windows which open so wide we felt as if we were almost in the garden. We spent most of our time at the property sitting in here, just soaking up the view...amazing. At the other end of the apartment there is a shower room with toilet and bidet, a large double bedroom, and a smaller one with bunk beds.Heavy shutters can be lowered at night time if you like your room to be very dark. There is lots of storage space, and the bed was extremely comfortable . It is all the little things which make Casa Fanella even nicer- Stefania had put a delicious bottle of local wine in the fridge for us, plus pasta, sauce, teabags, coffee, sugar, salt, pepper, water and crispbreads ready for us so that we did not have to go out for shopping as soon as we had unpacked. Clean linen and towels were put in the outside laundry room for us halfway through our stay- there is an excellent washing machine, and detergent was provided. Lots of leaflets, maps and a Welcome Pack were available to give us some other ideas for visits. There is heating and air conditioning if required. A local bus stops approximately five minutes walk away, and it is only 1 euro per person to travel into Piano di Sorrento to catch the train to places like Pompeii and Naples( train fares are also very cheap compared to the UK). Stefania was the nicest hostess we have ever had the pleasure of meeting, and contacted us several times to make sure all was well during our stay, even popping in to say goodbye the night before we left. We loved Casa Fanella, and highly recommend this beautiful gem to fellow travellers!

“JOINNG THE PARADISE!”
Reviewed July 14, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My wife and I stayed at Casa Fanella to visit the Sorrento and Amalfi Coasts on our honeymoon. From the welcome to the house with a breathtaking view and a beautiful garden on while looking out onto the Bay of Naples, everything was just WOW! The house was very clean and fully equipped, with very comfortable beds. The owners are incredibly helpful and friendly and we had a very pleasant stay. They helped us figure out how to get around the peninsula. We also really enjoyed the peace and relax of the area and the delicious, local typical restaurants around. Short distance from everything, Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi, Pompeii, Capri, Vesuvius… We hope to return to this lovely house and town someday!

“Amazing stay in Amalfi Coast”

This was by far the best airbnb that I stayed in while studying abroad in Europe for the semester. The hosts are incredibly nice, wonderful, understanding people and do everything they can to make your stay perfect. When we first arrived, Stefania's husband, Domenico, picked us up from the train station to take us up to our place, and even brought us back to the station on the morning we left. The location is also perfect, as you are able to wake up to an amazing view but are also in a great spot to travel to all the hot tourist towns: Positano, Capri, Pompeii, Sorrento. The apartment itself was incredibly warm and comforting as well. I wish we could have stayed here more nights because I felt so at home here. I also misplaced my passport and it got left there in the rush to leave--which was an incredibly worrisome experience--but Stefania handled it perfectly and went above and beyond to get it returned to me. You can tell these are genuine, caring people and I recommend this place to everyone who wants to visit the coast.
