“Absolutely Fabulous!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

My wife and I stayed at Villa Denise for 9 nights in June. The host family were wonderful and could not do enough for us, we look forward to returning in the future to meet the latest additions to the family! We travelled from the UK by train right up to the local station where Giovanni kindly picked us up for transfer to the villa, we did not have a car and this was not a problem thanks to the free transfer whenever requested. The room, villa, pool and gardens were spotlessly clean and air conditioning an added bonus! We met some wonderful people and have happy memories of lazy days around the pool.

About 7 miles before Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast on the Montechiaro hillside and with spectacular views of the Bay of Naples, sits peaceful Villa Denise.

A professionally restored 200 year old Villa above the town of Vico Equense, it offers a little piece of paradise. Beautifully landscaped with flowers, fruit trees and terraces and very clean and comfortable. The amenities are lovely as complementary afternoon tea or café. Denise and Giovanni, the gentile owners, provide a full breakfast with homemade pastries, help with anything you need, and are the warmest hosts you will find in all of Italy. We thank Giovanni and Denise and their family for their kindness and service. We shall return and we do recommend Villa Denise to our friends.

It is a fantastic villa on a fantastic location, breath taking views!!! We only stayed for one night, I wish we could have stayed longer. It is a perfect base to visit Naples, Pompeii and Sorento by train - because of the free drop and pick up at the train station you dont even need a car! But if you have a car there is a free private parking provided. Denis and her family will make sure your stay is peaceful and they are ready to help whenever they can. We had a lovely welcome cake when we arrived in the evening and very nice breakfast... The rooms are clean and tidy, very homely.
I would recommend Villa Denise to everyone!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great.

In South Africa is the Sun or Lost City. The best seven star hotel all over the world. Villa Denise the same seven star accommodition in Italy. The seven stars: Denise, Ines, Elisabette, Giovanni, Fabritio, Enzo, Stefano + J.G. The atmosphere wonderful. You became the member of the Giovanni family. Relax, the smell and taste of Italy. Go there and go back to your family and you will change your life. The phantastic breakfast is the maximun to say: sweety. Clean everything and wonderful furnitures, circumstances. I think so, that nobody can learn this accommodition, you must born for it. If we could give points from 1 to 10, they got: 16!

I can only say, if you are looking to meet an amazing, generous, loving Italian family who are proud to share their beautiful home with you, stay at Villa Denise.

I stayed here with my wife for one night.

The home is just outside Vico Equense, which is a very nice alternative to the tourist crowds of Sorrento. It is up on the hill outside of town, which gives the breathtaking views you see in the photos. The room was newly renovated, very nicely decorated and have a very comfortable bed. The view you can see from the terrace was the same view from our room balcony.

We arrived by train and were met by the owner Giovanni, who drove us to the B&B. The car is available to drive you into town and pick you up, whenever you like. They are just 10 minutes away and with a quick phone call, the car arrives to pick you up and take you home.

From the moment we arrived at Villa Denise, we felt welcome and cared for. Nothing was an effort and the whole family made us feel very special.

The room had a private ensuite, was immaculate, and made this part of our trip memorable.

Breakfast was very good.

We will be making a special effort to come back here next year.

Room Tip: All very good.

We stayed here for a week and felt like we were visiting old friends.

The whole family treated us as one of them and we looked forward to going home at the end of each day to have a chat with them!

The room was spotless, breakfast was amazing - handmade jams, fresh orange juice - the works! and Ines and Denise asked us if we would like anything else every day!

The Villa is perched on the hills above the bay and we can well imagine how glorious it will be in summer! It's an easy drive to Pompeii, Ercolano and the Amalfi Coast. The ferry terminal is not very far either for those wishing to go to the Islands - but we did not. Naples is best attempted on the train, and Giovanni very kindly dropped us and picked us up from the station.

Tourists are not recommended to drive up to the Villa as the road is steep and narrow and guaranteed to damage your car unless you're used to driving there, but it's no problem at all as they pick you up from the free car park. Moreover being in the car gives you a surreal feeling of being in a computer game which is great!

We could not recommend this place enough! We have travelled extensively, and met lots of lovely people the world over, but never have we felt part of a warm and loving family - despite not being fluent in each other's languages.

We would love to visit them again.

Hospitality at its best! Forget the expensive hotels with snobby staff: this a place where you can feel like a king in the privacy of small and gorgeous B&B, with breathtaking views. Rarely have we seen websites where the pictures are a true reflection of the real thing. The experience starts with the pick up at the gated parking space on the main road. This place is also unique in its accessibility: extremely narrow roads only usable with very small cars. The 5 minute drive is worth the experience :-) The service, the friendliness, the cleanliness - all get top ratings. Our only regret was that it was too cold to enjoy the attractive pool and rest under an olive tree. We will surely come back when the days are warmer. Thank you for making us feel at home (we are a family of 2 adults a 2 teenagers).
