The residence is very well maintained, spotlessly clean and positioned high on a hill side to give pleasant views across the valley and to the Gulf of Salerno. Guisy, the recepionist is exceptionally friendly with plenty of good advice and in perfect English.
We were very fortunate for our half-term visit. It was hot, around 30C every day, and apart from one other family being there some of the time we had the place to ourselves. We had use of the lovely pool as if it was our own and felt very safe and secure. The apartments are at the end of a very narrow private road and behind electric gates with plenty of steel fencing around the site. Guisy lives at the other end of the road and made it very clear that we should ring her 'out of hours' if we had any problems - we didn't.
One of the other joys of the place was a complete absence of 'rules' both in the apartment and at the pool. It made us feel like we were just at our second home!
The roads around Sant'Agata are very winding and the Italian drivers and scooterists are most keen to 'straighten them out' by driving in a straight line at all times. Once you adjust and constantly exercise care it's fine.
Very few shops in the town but what there is is fine for basic foods and the people are very pleasant.
Before our visit we were a little perplexed that we could not find Le Capannelle on Google maps and the instruction given was to ring Guisy once we reached the filling station in the town. However after email reassurances from Guisy and from witnessing the difficulty of finding this place without a guide this approach is very sensible. It all worked very well.
It is very quiet but being on a hill the barking of dogs down in the valley every evening was a common sound - but not too troublesome.
When driving to the residence, either to and from the airport or to visit Pompei, Vesuvius etc do avoid the route through Sorrento. The traffic there really lengths the journey. Take the 163 out of Meta and appraoch Sant'Agata from the Positano direction. Still a winding route but much quieter.
