My sister and I booked into Maschioangioino for a pre-Christmas shopping trip. On learning that we both worked in the arts, the proprietor Signora Izzo waived a deposit, saying "Culture is always welcome in my house"! This got us off to a great start. We had lots of friendly emails from her too, ahead of our trip, explaining directions and offering advice. On arrival we couldn't have had a nicer or more charming welcome, with cups of tea and home-made caramelised oranges in chocolate. Signora Izzo loves her dolci! She also made wonderfully helpful phonecalls to the local restaurateurs, recommending her English guests to them. The breakfasts were copious and different every day, with savoury pasties, sweet delicacies and home-made jams. The house was clean and civilised, with idiosyncratic decor and a spectacular - if not altogether efficient - bathroom (you can't shower standing up!) Lovely to be in a grandiose palazzo apartment block with a huge 'portone' entrance into a massive courtyard, though it's worth knowing that you need a 10-cent piece to use the lift before 7pm! Also the view of the castle is not visible from the guest accommodation, sadly; only from the family apartment. However we loved being in central Naples, just a few steps from the Galleria, and equally near to the waterfront with its view of Vesuvius. From the shopping point of view, Maschioangionio is also perfect - midway between the quaint medieval centro storico and the more upmarket commercial districts and Via Chiaia.
