We stayed at Villa Maresca for 4 nights in early October 2012. Maria and her daughter Federica were the perfect hosts, their warm and friendly personalities making us feel very welcome. They were also prepared to do the little extra things that make a difference eg getting picked up and dropped off at the railway station, booking a cruise to Capri and then driving us to the wharf, waiting with us to ensure we got on the right boat, etc. Both were very helpful with tourist suggestions, and their advice was always spot-on. Our room was large with plenty of storage area, and direct access to 2 terraces, one with views of the mountains and the distant bay - a great place to relax after a hard day sightseeing. The villa is surrounded by lovely gardens and has its own orange grove and vege garden, with the fresh produce being used for breakfasts. Be aware of Federica's lovely home cooked cakes at breakfast - they are just too nice!
Piano di Sorrento may not have the same tourist profile as nearby Sorrento or the Amalfi, but it's an excellent base as it is on the train line and is easy access to Capri, Pompeii and the Amalfi. The train station is a 10-15 min walk, the local beach/wharf a 20 min walk, and its a 5 min walk to the main street, bus stop, shops, restaurants etc. We would definitely stay here again.
