We've just back for a wonderful week in Villa Gioia. Everything was perfect: - Very warm hospitality (Ricardo, Carmen & Renato - Thanks for your warm reception and every day attentions & tips) - Very clean, practical, comfortable & beautiful house ! - Wonderful garden (very well maintain and furnished) with a fantastic view - The pool very suitable for our kids (and for us !) - Very quiet & peaceful place, but still 10min drive from Salerno town center
Moreover the villa is very well situated: between 30 to 60min drive from many nice attraction & visit (pompei, Vesuvio, Amalfi coast, paestum, Naples, etc )
Overall, we had a wonderful stay and we warmly recommend the Villa Gioia

Owner's Response: thk u for all.u are very kind!!!
Thank you very much Ricardo, Renato & Carmen for your hospitality and kindness, we were completely at our ease and you have been very friendly and tolerant with our noisy kids, who have enjoyed the pool the garden the fruits you have offered us all along our one week stay at lovely Villa Gioia. Everything was exactly as pictured. The Limoncello fantastic. It was also very helpful to have a washing machine at our disposal and thanks again for having bought a toaster which I am sure the next renters will also appreciate. (My only dissapointment were the cats, I don't like cats, but that's just very personal... however the dog was lovely and kind, all the rest is just super). We hope to meet with you again sometime somewhere, and if we had to come back again in the area of the Costa Amalfi we will for sure rent your spot again. In the meantime we warmly recommend it to anybody who likes visiting a lot, since it’s the perfect place to start from if one wishes to visit the 2 wonderful coast surrounded by Salerno. Grazie mille it was a pleasure meeting with you all.
We have just had the most fabulous 6 days staying in this lovely, very Italian, property and pool with a view that is simply stunning. Riccardo and his family are very welcoming and were on hand should any problems occur, but were also very discreet and non imposing. The villa is very spacious, clean and comfortable. Although there is no A/C it remained cool indoors due to breezes and the cool fully tiled interior. The villa is placed really well for trips to Amalfi, Positano, Sorrento and Capri (cheaper to sail from Sorrento than Salerno) and also Naples (don't rush to visit here !) Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius. Also well placed for trips further South to Castellebate and Paestum. Rome took 2 hours so could easily be done in a day, if that's all you had. We had 3 days and do not miss seeing the Pope on Sunday at midday in St Peters Square ! Back to the Villa - well placed for shops, supermarkets etc., but you do need a car to take you up and down the very winding hillinto Salerno centre . Salerno city not great looking, rubbish, graffiti, etc but the old part, on the promenade,and port quaint. Nice restaurants in Salerno old part and costs for Pizzas and Pasta were very reasonable with a basic Margarita being 3.5-4.5 euros. No kettle, toaster or microwave, which is why I have not given 5 stars. However, this did not stop the enjoyment and relaxation of the stay. The pool was fab being used form morning until night, on days not spent sightseeing. The beds were very firm, great if you have a back problem ! As stated before very clean with essentials provided eg. loo rolls, soap, shampoo, sugar, salt, olive oil etc. In short, fab place, very quiet, peaceful, with stunning views. Thanks to Riccardo and family for making us so welcome. Anne, David, Jake & Kim July 2013

Auch uns musste Riccardo bei der Suche behilflich sein, das das Navi das Objekt nicht gefunden hat. Wir wurden sehr freundlich und herzlich empfangen. Die Unterkunft war sehr sauber und bietet ausreichend Platz für 4 Personen. Die Wohnung befindet sich in der untersten Etage einer vierstöckigen Villa, in der auch die Familie wohnt. Auf der Terasse kann der Tag mit einem Frühstück bei Sonnenschein begonnen werden. Eine Ebene darüber befindet sich der wunderschöne Pool mit Blick auf Salenro zum Meer. Die Anlage ist sehr gepflegt und geschmackvoll bepflanzt. Zum Haus gehören mehrere zutrauliche Katzen und ein Hund.Die City ist zu Fuß nicht erreichbar. Es fährt ein Bus, zudem aber kein Fahrplan aushängt. In ca. 1 km Entfernung gibt es ein kleines Lebensmittelgeschäft und das Restaurant O Paisano. Italienischkenntnisse sind von Vorteil. Ein Auto ist unverzichtbar. Wir haben Ausflüge an die Amalfiküste, Neapel, zum Vesus, Pompei, Paestum u.v.a. unternommen. Die italienische Fahrweise ist nichts für schwache Nerven, die Parkgebühren betragen 1-3 €/h. Das Feriendomiziel würden wir auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen.

Owner's Response: Vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung. Sie waren sehr nett und ich hoffe, Sie alle hatten einen wunderschönen Urlaub. hallo und bis bald
Wir haben ein wunderschöne Urlaubswoche im herrlichen Süden Italiens erlebt. Die Wohnung oberhalb von Salerno hatte ein traumhafte Lage mit einer herrlichen Aussicht auf das Meer und die Stadt, absolut ruhig und trotzdem nur wenige Autominuten von Salerno entfernt. Fahrzeug ist unbedingt erforderlich.Das erste Mal war die Anfahrt etwas verwirrend, aber dank Riccardo's Hilfe hat alles gut geklappt. Beim zweiten Mal gab es keinerlei Probleme. Die Wohnung war sehr sauber und gemütlich eingerichtet. Wir haben nichts vermisst - ausser mehr Zeit. Riccardo und seine Familie waren extrem freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Lage für die Erkundung des Gebietes war sehr gut und wir waren jeden Tag unterwegs - nach einem herrlichen Frühstück auf der Terrasse. Ausflüge nach Neapel, Pompeji, Vesuv, Cilento, Paestum und .... und .... und.. Die Amalfi-Küste war traumhaft schön - ein absolutes MUSS mit ihren reizenden Dörfern und herrlichen Zitronenhainen. Allerdings auch entsprechend belebt. Und daher haben wir bei unserem Ausflug nach Sorrent und Capri für den Rückweg die nördliche, längere Route gewählt und einiges an Zeit gespart. Durch unsere vielen Aktivitäten kam leider der wunderschöne Pool etwas zu kurz - ein guter Grund bald man wieder Urlaub zu machen.
We spent a week at this wonderful house, and left wishing we could stay longer. The spectacular view, the beautiful indoor facilities, the amazingly hospitable owners, they all made for a stellar vacation spot. The house, situated up on the hills, was a perfect location to visit many nearby attractions, such as Napoli, Capri, Positano, Amalfi, and of course the city it was situated in, Salerno. The house was in pristine conditions, extremely clean and orderly, not to mention comfortable and homey. The kitchen was fully equipped and completely functional. We had many lovely meals outside in the terrace, enjoying the view and the fresh, clean air. The owners, Riccardo, Carmen and Renato were all wonderful, extremely helpful and welcoming, they made us feel very much at home. They showed us around Salerno, as well as help us shop and the means to visit some of the beautiful attractions the region offers. All in all, it was an astonishing experience, one we would recommend to anyone who is interested in visiting the region. It was an unforgettable stay, one we will always store and cherish in our memory.
