We stayed for seven nights (cash only) at this wonderful place. Administration was very efficiently done by english speaking daughter of family, TT and run by delightful parents Rita and Mike who couldn't have been more helpful; cheery, very amicable, generous and kind. He spoke pretty good english and she was very chatty in Italian and charades. We were royally treated.
Our accommodations were independent of the main house. Bedroom and bathroom were roomy and very nicely decorated. The position of the toilet may be awkward for anyone with a disability. The other accommodation may have been configured better. Between these two rooms was a room with a good sized couch, wardrobe and drawers, two chairs, a short cupboard we used as a table as it was too cool to sit at the nice big table outside and a kitchenette that included a sink and fridge but the stove did not function so we could not make our bedtime tea we like. An electric kettle would have been good. They very kindly made us hot water when we asked but we hated to have to ask, especially at night. The only other thing was that the wall between our bedroom and the other guest bedroom was not at all sound proof so even a low voice was very easily heard.
Breakfast was out on the big beautifully laid out table under cover but again because of the poor weather we breakfasted most mornings inside their sweet house in their very nice kitchen. They made us a lovely breakfast each day often including their own eggs, herbs and homemade marmalade. They always treated us to wonderful fresh bread, delicious great big mugs of coffee with hot milk and orange juice. Rita encouraged us to picnic with the generous leftovers later in the day.
They were able to give us great advice of different types of restaurants in the area. We enjoyed nearby ‘Ristorante Betania’ for fabulous gourmet, ‘Il Ghiottone’ for excellent whole baked chicken, pizza and salad. In Sorrento town, ‘Da Francas’ for delicious pizza and good cheap wine/beer, ‘La Fenice’ for a little more upscale but reasonable and very good, the ‘Excelsior Hotel’ for gin and tonic on a beautiful patio with a stunning view of the Med and ‘Ritas’ for fabulous paninis and pastries.
Mike was happy to expertly drive us to the various bus, train and ferry stations. We pressed € on him. One day he drove us to attractive Positano then we caught the bus to Amalfi, a town not worth the trouble and in that we were a little pressed for time we wish now we had gone on to Ravello instead.
We had to literally fight our way on to the bus. Sometimes there are cops that control the long waiting lines but they had gone for ‘coffee’ when we were there. It was a horrible experience. Then the ride home to Sorrento was an even worse experience. We were in the stairwell to the middle doors and had to hang from the bars of the door opener to steady ourselves as the bus driver flew around the hairpin bends at record breaking speed. People were vomiting. My husband and I prayed out loud with other passengers and vowed to advise everybody to only board a coastal bus if you can get a seat. Apparently the drivers will always race this treacherous cliff road but as a passenger, make sure you are seated for the ride. In our opinion you are no safer in a car because you would not only be trying to avoid the precarious road's edge but also the maniacal buses!!!
We loved hanging in the pretty town of Sorrento and enjoyed our day in beautiful Capri especially as we took one of those great €20 four hour tours with the fellow at the ferry dock. This took us to Ana Capri too.
We highly recommend staying at this B&B even though we were not able to pay for our seven nights by credit card.
