Warm, friendly, and very beautiful. This family-run lemon farm agriturismo stands on a hill above the coast highway between sorrento and massa lubrense, and was a wonderful base from which to explore the sorrento coast/peninsula.
We were one of the few visitors that didn't have a car, which was fine. They picked us up and at the end, dropped us off at the bus stop down the hill, which is also a quick walk (we chose to get around the coast by bus, which was terrific as driving and parking in the region is a hassle). Twice we chose to have dinner at the house, and it was delicious both times. Rooms are clean and comfortable, nothing super-fancy. Basic breakfast is simple but does the job, with home-made jams etc., served on a terrace with a spectacular view of the gulf of naples. We loaded up the suitcase with their homemade limoncello for gifts/memories.
Would happily stay again and recommend for other families.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Garden of Vigliano is a peasant house , the walls of which oozes a feeling of harmony and serenity during the day , in fact , it is not difficult to see Peppino , a true master in the art of terracotta nativity scene and tuff , and is intent on shaping shepherds , things seem plausible to people in the flesh . There are few guest rooms ( located inside the large building that once functioned as a watchtower ), but this is an advantage because you can get more in relationship with the family and the surrounding environment. The Garden is not far from town known throughout the world for their beauty as Positano, Amalfi and Sorrento , definitely worth a visit . Even within the coast you can make interesting excursions : in fact , not far from Vigliano , is Villa Rossi with the church dedicated to Our Lady of Charity painted by Guido Reni, who lived between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries , and also known to be the place where the English Admiral Hudson Lowe, after the battle of Capri , surrendered to Joachim Murat , King of Naples from 1808 to 1815 . ... more less
