My family of 4 (2 teens) stayed at Elena's beautiful apartment for 4 nights and we couldn't have been happier! Perfectly centrally located in Sorrento this apartment is clean and stylish and feels like a home rather than a rental. The best thing though is the absolutely fantastic view from the balcony. I'm not sure I can emphasize this enough! The photos don't do it justice! Mount Vesuvius seemed close enough to touch and the Bay of Naples was spectacular. Rather than go out my family ate on the terrace on most nights. To top it off Elena is an ideal host - always available to answer questions and truly cares about your comfort and stay. We will definitely be back!
Really pleased that we found this appartment for our holiday in Sorrento. It was spacious and well equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay. We were there in March, the weather was quite cold and damp but the appartment was warm and cosy and a welcoming place to return to after a day visiting the attractions of the area.
The view from the bedroom and balcony is amazing, an orange grove directly in front of you and the sea, the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius beyond.
The appartment is in a quiet neighbourhood but is in easy walking distance of the centre of town, shops and public transport. You definitely don't need a car to stay here.
Elena, the owner, was very helpful. She booked our airport transfers and provided lots of information to make our stay more enjoyable. She even came to visit to check all was well, bringing with her a huge, delicious Easter cake as a gift! Thank you Elena!
We would recommend a stay here 100%.
I stayed at the apartment with my friend and 2 young children. The apartment itself was beautiful. We enjoyed spending time on the balcony, taking in the fabulous view. It was a short walk to the center of town. We didn't cook much, but had everything we needed when we did. Elena was so wonderful and accommodating. When we arrived, she already had milk, water, and wine in the fridge for us. She also offered many recommendations for what to do and the best places to eat. Would highly recommend this property!
Wonderful apartment, felt like a home away from home, everything we could need was in the apartment with great facilities including cooking, washing machine, Wi Fi Coffee Maker 2 balconies and plenty of space, the balcony and views of the bay of Naples was stunning. Elena was very welcoming and left snacks and champagne for our arrival (my apologies Elena for not leaving this review sooner..!) The location was perfect and quiet and close to everything. Transport, Shops, Beach. If we come back to Sorrento we will stay here again it was the highlight of trip and the best apartment we have stayed in and we travel a bit, highly recommend for small or large families.
Splendid B apartment was meticulously clean and extremely well appointed. The owner was so helpful and gracious during the booking process and when we arrived. She not only welcomed us with sweet treats and a local liqueur, but she spent a good deal of time with us to get us oriented. She provided recommendations for restaurants and activities/sights in and around Sorrento. She even recommended certain tour companies, and told us what to watch out for with others, and provided us with contact information for a winery. We were a group of four adults, and the apartment was perfectly comfortable. It is conveniently located in the city. Not in the heart of the busiest/louder old city, but a short walk to the old city from the nice, residential area. The bathrooms were updated and large in comparison to other Italian apartments we have stayed in. While we didn't cook in the apartment, the kitchen has everything that you would need to prepare meals. It even had a dishwasher! We took advantage of the washing machine and the many clothespins left for hanging clothes on the line over the courtyard.
We highly recommend this apartment for its location, size, and amenities. It's location made it very easy to explore Naples, Pompeii, Vesuvius, wineries in Avellino, etc.
It was over 12 months ago when I booked this apartment. Our host Elena was swift in communicating and this continued over the year. Elena was on hand to assist us with absolutely everything and so we booked two excursions through her. We were met at the airport by her nominated driver, Nunzio, who was, apart from being a terrific driver, was a really lovely, well mannered person.
The apartment was better than the photos depicted. It is a "have to be there" moment to stand and look from that balcony. Wow. We pretty much sat out there every night.
It is a lovely set up and everything was available for us. The place is impeccably clean and very well organised.
Nunzio took us on a day trip down the Amalfi coast for the day and what a splendid occasion it was. That man has patience and driving skills beyond a normal human being.Manouvering around those bends and dealing with the manic scooter riders was remarkable. Fabulous journey.
We also booked through Elena to go to Capri. Another sensational journey through a local company who just got everything exactly right. Having worked on tours around Europe in the 80s, I think that this tour was one of the best I have ever done in Capri.
Back at the apartment, I discovered I had an infected foot, and of course, a Sunday night. Contacted Elena she responded immediately, and within 30 minutes I had treatment to resolve.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, along with my cousin and my mother. It set quite a standard for the future. Just a wonderful, wonderful stay. The organisation between Elena, the drivers and the other people she liaises with is a tight outfit and I really respect how well they work together because in the end everything seems to be about us, the guests. Pretty unique in this big world.
I would recommend anyone go to stay at Elena's. It is a terrific location and a real home away from home. Absolutely superb as was Elena's generous spirit and kindness.
We were a group of four adults staying in the apartment for a week. It has plenty of space and is very light and airy. Facilities are also spot on with everything you need. Lovely sitting on the balcony with a view of Vesuvius. The apartment is also very quiet during the day and night. Alena is a fabulous host who answers all questions swiftly and has some great recommendations, such as the wonderful country house we went to for lunch on the last day, (see pics) great end to the holiday!
