“Great Apartment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

We stayed in the apartment for three nights and it was one of our better choices for our Italy tour. Tina and her daughter were exceptionally friendly and helpful. When I mentioned that we wanted to go to Capri on one of the days, Tina booked us on a boat tour that she said was the same price as the ferry but you got the whole tour plus a van picked you up a block away and brought you back. That worked out well, except that the boat was a lot smaller than we anticipated. The tour was great though. You may not want to use that tour in rough weather.

Even though we had the apt. that did not include breakfast, Tina had left us a huge selection of bread, pastries, home made desserts as well as fresh fruit. She even refreshed the selection each day which was a pleasant surprise.

The apartment is spacious and includes a full kitchen. We ended up going twice to a local restaurant that Tina suggested. 'Il fieniele' ended up being fantastic with great food that was reasonably priced. It's about a 6 minute walk on the other side of S. Agata. Well worth it.

The views from the balcony are awesome. Sunrise is not to be missed but you are facing the wrong direction for sunsets. The only thing I didn't expect is that the large apartment actually comprises two of the three balcony sections on the B&B photo. One smaller unit has the left side which would have a partially obstructed sea view and the other one is to the rear, right side with a partial view also. Book the large apartment if it is available for sure.

Wifi was a bit of an issue. Tina's daughter looks after it and it's not on when she is at school teaching and is turned off later in the evening. I had trouble logging on but it was a password issue, not signal strength.

We did have some trouble finding the place. Tina's instructions were clear but the signs are easy to get wrong along the way. Our GPS took us on back roads and streets for the shortest route. Each time we drove in & out we seemed to take a different route and it wasn't until the last day that we found the best way, which was not exactly what Tina or the GPS told us to.

One problem is that you are living right in the local neighbourhood. Tina's dogs were not a problem but there are lots of other dogs that do bark late at night and early in the morning. Traffic noise is very minimal.

Overall a great place that we would use again.

Room Tip: Book the large apartment for the better balcony.

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.
