We booked our stay at Cassiopea after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and we have to say that they did not disappoint!
We stayed as a 'mature' family and were made to feel so welcome right from the start. We were showed to the large, sunny balcony, with views over Isle of Capri and Bay of Naples in the distance, where welcome drinks and snacks were laid out for us to enjoy.
Ignatzio, Catarina and their daughter were the most welcoming and hospitable hosts. At times we felt more like good friends than paying customers. This was made even more impressive considering their English is broken, but their enthusiasm and effort always made it possible to communicate.
Breakfast was so delicious, with a lovely continental spread, including fresh pastries from the local bakery, fruit from their garden and also fresh ricotta cheese, which Ignatzio had made that very morning.
The bedrooms and bathrooms are all very new and clean. The beds are very comfortable and there is also a table and chairs.
There is wireless internet in the lounge area, but it was rather temperamental and slow when you connected. However given that this B&B is ideal place to get away from the hustle and bustle, then this was only a very minor inconvenience.
The road leading up to Cassiopea is hair-raising but very much worth it as you are away from the tourist crowds and part of a local community. Everyone is really friendly and helpful! And the views are just spectacular!!
We hope to make it back to this part of the world again sometime soon and will definitely stay at Cassiopea again!
