Villa Ketty Resort
Ranked #1 of 44 Vico Equense B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I'm currently lazing by the pool, trying to digest the most magnificent breakfast - home made cheeses, sundried tomatoes, home grown fruits (all organic), local hams, honeys, freshly baked cakes, yoghurt pots, chocolate mousses and the sweetest freshly squeezed juice. Villa Ketty is the paradise that the previous reviewers suggested.

We are staying in room nine with our 12 month old daughter, it's light, airy and has the most beautiful sea views. They have provided a full cot and the wooden shutters mean the room is in full darkness until you are ready to rise so we have all slept incredibly well. The grounds are immaculate, and the family take great pride in their gardens - growing much of their organic breakfast produce on site.

We drove from Rome airport, (2hrs 45mins) parked in town (under pizza a metro) and the family picked us up minutes later to take us up the windy road to the Villa. We were slightly concerned that the road to town would be too steep for us to take a pushchair but its absolutely fine. We have done early morning (and late night) strolls to and from town with our daughter asleep in the pushchair, the road is well lit and takes approx 10mins. The little town of Vico is buzzing first thing in the morning so a quick walk pre breakfast helps to alleviate the guilt of eating cake for the first meal of the day. There are also a good number of restaurants within walking distance, from Michelin starred eateries to local pizzerias. Villa Ketty also seem to provide a driver, available 24/7 just to shuttle you in and out of town if the heat gets to much.

We are staying for 8 nights and have a full packed schedule visiting local towns - Pompeii, Capri, Positano to name just a few - so don't scrimp on time and spend a week or two at Villa Ketty.

A great week at the Villa Ketty. Wonderful views over the Bay of Naples. Vico Equense is a good location for exploring the coast from Naples to Sorrento - using the Circumvesuviana - and on to Capri and the Amalfi coast. Superb breakfasts set us up for the day and our hosts were very pleasant and helpful.

A bonus was ceramic painting with Sylvie (even with just a smattering of shared language between us). After a little lazing by the pool, a late afternoon departure to see Pompeii ensured it was cooler and we had it pretty much to ourselves.

We stayed in their family room (room 9) and had a lovely time. We were only there for one night but it was a good one - the room (and wider hotel) was very clean and beautifully presented. We arrived slightly early and were offered a drink on the terrace and a swim in the pool. The views are absolutely stunning - the coastline and Vico Equense on one side and Mount Vesuvius on the other.

The family were very friendly and obviously take a lot of pride in what they are doing there. I have never seen such an elaborate B&B breakfast!

One of the best locations we ever been in. The whole family is extremely friendly and just waiting to assist your every need. The location is great both for romantic vacation as well as for families with children. We got there following a recommendation from friends of us, and it even exceeded our expectations. Would love to come back (a pity we had to return home...).

Villa Ketty is one of those places we will never forget. The kindness of its people and owners. The wonderfull place and its view. The best breakfast of all. And the magnificent pizza of Pizzametro. Every detail is taken care with craftsmanship and soul. Highly recommended.
