It is a beautiful,well equipped and comfortable apartment with the most stunning views of Vesuvius and the beautiful countryside. Everything we needed was provided but what made our 3 night stay so special was our lovely host Raphaella. She greeted us with home made pastries and her delicious coffee and when we left we enjoyed coffee with her again and promised we'd be back one day. We felt we were saying goodbye to a friend.
The village was wonderful, authentic Italy ...removed from the hustle and bustle of some of the more tourist focused spots in the area...very easy to relax. At Raphealla's suggestion we ata at the local restaurant and ended up back there 3 nights running....amazing food.
We're happy to rate our experience as 5 stars across the board....it deserves even better than that.
A fantastic 10 days in Italy
As a family of 4 we really enjoyed our stay in Italy. Raffaella the owner of the apartment was lovely and so welcoming. She made us a tiramisu and often brought us her delicious coffee.
The kids loved the pool. It was very small but they didn’t mind that. The view from the apartment was fantastic.
We used this apartment as a base to see Italy. We had a hire car and went to Pompeii, Herculaneum and the Royal Palace of Caserta. We also went to Sorrento, Amalfi and Positano.
There are a few restaurants within walking distance and we enjoyed Da Silvia’s which did great pizzas and a range of other food - at a very cheap price.
We also went out to Salerno one evening for an Indian curry.
I would highly recommend this apartment- although you’ll need a car to make the most of your trip.
Raffaella was a wonderful host-- nothing was too much trouble and we felt most welcome in the lovely apartment she rented to us. The views around Pimonte were fantastic, and we ate well in two local pizzerias (both within walking distance, though one is up a steep incline but the tasty menu made the climb worthwhile).
It's also worth getting up early to buy fresh bread and croissants from the local baker, who stops outside the appartment at around 7 - 7.30am each morning. All in all a lovely holiday rental if you want to submerse yourself in Italian culture. 10/10!
We stayed at the property for 5 days in June 2019 - the property was perfect for our needs. We were a party of 4 adults, two children and a baby, Raffaella was able to provide us with a travel cot on request for the baby.
The property is a large first floor apartment comprising of two large en-suite bedrooms and a sofa bed in the kitchen / dining room. The bedrooms were fitted with excellent air conditioning which helped with the warm summer nights.
Both bedrooms have balconies, one of which overlooks Mount Vesuvius which is stunning on a night time. The kitchen is well equipped and serviced all our needs.
The apartment is situated a 10 minute walk away from the village center which has a 'real' rural Italian feel. There is several cafe / bars and a bakery in the village.
Raffaella was a good host and greated us with fresh coffee and biscuits. During our stay she made us some seafood pasta to try - it was the best food we tried all holiday.
There is a small outdoor pool area which sufficed for our short stay, although the sunbeds are tired and the pool area itself is a little basic.
It is perfectly situated for trips to the Amalfi coast, Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius which were all a short drive away. A word of warning though - i have driven in numerous countries around the world but the Amalfi Coast drive was the toughest i have ever experienced. I would highly recommend using the local buses which run regularly form the town.
A hire car is essential in this rural location and the local supermarket MD is a 10 minute car drive away.
The apartment is great value for money and i would recommend it to anyone.
quiet family retreat in the mountains
The accommodation was very nice and well equipped : a first floor flat with two double bedrooms and a sofa bed (2 singles) in the kitchen/diner. balconies in each room with a great view of mt vesuvius in bedroom 2. Parking was available. Rafaella was very friendly and welcoming, living in the flat upstairs in the property.
The apartment was in the hills about 30-40 minute drive from Pompei. There were some nice restaurants in the village within walking distance. A car is essential.
Unfortunately the swimming pool which was advertised, and the main reason for booking here with children was not available :( Sadly despite asking ahead of arrival, this was not communicated to us.
Driving anywhere takes at least an hour... but we visited Mt Vesuvius, Pompei, Sorrento and Salerno and beaches on the Amalfi coast all on day trips... the area is genuinely beautiful.
We had a great holiday here.
Raffaella is a wonderful host and makes the best cafe
