“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

We wouldn't normally book a B&B but thought we'd give this a go and were very glad we did. Tina & Gianni + family are incredibly friendly and welcoming. They gave us lots great advice on where to go & where to eat without being intrusive. The breakfasts were divine and fantastic having them on our balcony with sunrise. We didn't have the greatest weather all week but Tina helped us make the most of it. Torca is a great place to stay if you don't want to be swamped by tourists yet you are close enough (15 min drive Sorrento or bus available) to Sorrento, Pompeii, Bay of Ieranto (which was gorgeous & we wouldn't have known about with Tina's suggestion). Also on this side of the peninsula you have the Marina beach (far better than Sorrento). Tina also booked our excursion to Capri with the local co-operative, great day out.The room has it's own access so you can come & go as you please. The room was cleaned everyday & was spotless. We didn't get time to see everything we wanted to (bit of rain played it's part) so we will be going back to Villa Mon Plaisir. Very friendly hosts and excellent English (our Italian is none existent!).

We have never tasted croissants so light and pastries so delicious as we gazed at an incomparable view over the Bay of Sorrento. This was just one aspect of the pleasure of staying at Villa Mon Plaisir. The greeting by Gianni at Sorrento as if we were old friends; the smiling welcome at the Villa by Tina, Livia and Nonna;the spacious room with kitchen and patio to relax in; and the continued helpfulness of the family, were just a few of the other experiences. The recommendation that we dine at the only restaurant in the village - Bar Vittoria - was genuine, and we were not disappointed. My husband, a chef, was fascinated by the innovations that owner Carmine came up with and we dined 4 nights out of the 5 of our stay. Carmine and his wife Monica make their own pasta, wine, sausages and oil, and we had not tasted such tomatoes in many year.

Tina and her family are the best hosts we have ever experienced! Great welcome, very helpful in every way, excellent food, they are generous and warm people and we cannot recommend their B&B more highly. Wonderful views, a spacious and comfortable room as well!

I agree with another reviewer - this certainly was the best place of our whole holiday in Italy. Tina is a fantastic host and goes out of her way to make you feel at home. She advised us on activities in the area and also booked us into local resturants for some yummy food. The Villa is in a quiet and peaceful area and you can do some walking around if you wish. Just a note that if you go down to the little fishing beach (Crapolla) take some water and good hiking shoes - my husband and I just made it down and up in our flip flops! But it is worth it if you can do the excercise. Tina's breakfasts were amazing and really set you up for the day, a supply of homemade cake, crossiants and pankcakes, they were delicious! I really recommend this to anyone that wants to stay somewhere off the main toursit trail, but still have access to towns via bus and of course Tina's amazing hospitality! Thank you Tina, Gianni and Olivia ! We will be back ! xx

Villa Mon Plaisir is located in gorgeous site overlooking the Salerno Gulf with a splendid view on the Galli rocks. The B and B is on the first floor, inside the owners' house, above their apartment.
The house is located in a quiet dead end street. Parking is not easy but it's possible to park on the main village square.
We stayed 5 nights in the Parthenope room which is a real apartment with a large kitchen (including a pizza oven) and a big terrace which enables us to eat our breakfast outside (except two mornings with a dense fog!).
Everything was perfect. Kitchen and bathroom are cleaned everyday. The owners are very friendly. The landlady brought us fresh pastries every morning and cooked some delicious cakes for us. Her husband offered us a bottle of a good red wine coming from his own vineyards on the Sorrento hills. On our arrival, the landlady welcomed us by offering glasses of lemonade and home made cakes. With her husband, she was very helpful by giving us good tips for what to do and what to see.
Our whole stay was a real treat thanks to the hosts' kindness and the real comfort of their B and B.
We recommend this address highly.

My husband and I stayed at Villa Mon Plaisir for two nights over the Easter weekend. Tina and her husband, Jiani, went out of their way to make sure we had a wonderful local experience. On our arrival, Jiani picked us up from the rail station and dropped us at the port for a trip to Capri and then collected us upon return. They had booked our dinner at a local restaurant which is highly recommended; the seafood is fresh and ever so tasty.

Under the guidance and help of Jiani and Tina, we hired a scooter from Sorrento and travelled from Massa Lubrense to Ravello. Our hosts recommended sights and activities along the coast that we would never have experienced if we hadn't had local information from our hosts.

The bed and breakfast is located in a small area of Massa Lubrense and offers uninteruppted views and a very homely night's stay. There were many loving touches such as chocolates in the room and freshly baked croissants that made our stay that much better.

An outstanding place to stay and we will definitely be back.
