magical the real Italy

  • 5 of 5
Our first time visiting this fastenating country. We stayed at meta which is about 4km outside sorrento. We were met by luigi at the bus stop and being first timers our Italian was none. But he spoke perfect english and it was through him we got around italy for very little expence, from telling us what times the trains and buses were and advising on restraunts he truly was and exceptional host. As for Meta its there you stay amongst the real Italian people it was great to go into sorrento but to come away from all touristy stuff was a blessing and with a two minute walk to the train station u could be in pomei.

Owner's Response: Thank you Rory ... it's very kind of you --- I come from a very intensive experience in a commercial dpt of a very large international company and I learned (and teached) that courtasy does not cost a single penny and that it pays instead a lot in retrurn ... I do my best to let my clients feel at home while staying and visiting this interesting and exiting part of the world ----
Here, in my ex grand father 1850/1913 building, it's really everything new and logistically placed in a strategica and baricentric position to visit world wide known sites like Pompei, Capri, the Amalfi Dirve, the Vesuvious ecc ecc and, of course, to stay in totally restored apartments fully equipped where to rest in a very comfortable way ---
Hope to see you again and ... many others in the future --
My clients are always increasing, year after year, and I am satisfied of what I am doing after less then 4 years since I started this activity ----
My best regards
Luigi

Read the history of reviews; well deserved praise

  • 4 of 5
Top of the list of praise is Luigi. He is a good and helpful person. He cares about his Villa and he cares that people staying there have a satisfying experience. Second is the view. Our apartment had two balconies with views of the neighborhood, the cathedral spire, the mountains, and the sea. The view is even better on the spacious rooftop hangout. Third (maybe second), the apartment is a good size and well set up functionally, including a good kitchen setup. This is more important to me than stylishness, but I will say that the apartment is not stylish. Actually, let me amend that. It boosted my sense of Italian aura staying in an apartment with 15 foot ceilings.

We purposely chose Meta over Sorrento to be away from that touristy hubbub. We appreciated being in a real Italian town. A decent town to enjoy in its own right, the main thing is that Meta is very close to the train and bus, and there is so much on the Sorrento peninsula and beyond that staying in the town Sorrento is only an advantage for a short visit.

True, there are a lot of stairs. I personally feel they were good for my body and spirit. The urban neighborhood was quiet, relatively speaking, but it is an urban neighborhood and you would have to go to a far away corner of the Sorrento peninsula if you wanted real quiet (and you'd lose the character of this urban neighborhood).

I'm slow to give 5 star ratings, but Luigi's Villino Castellano is definitely a good value. I solidly recommend it as a 4 and don't hesitate to give Luigi a 5.

Quiet town

  • 3 of 5
Luigi was great. Meta was a very quiet. There weren't many restaurants to walk to. Our room was clean enough but there was no electric coffee pot or hair dryer. We stayed on the top floor which had awesome views but after walking all day the stairs were a little much. There is no elevator. We left 1 day early and stayed in Sorrento which offered more restaurants and shopping than Meta.

Great accommodation in good location

  • 5 of 5
This holiday accommodation was really great, clean and spacious with all the facilities we needed for our stay. Luigi was a gracious host very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for him to keep his guests happy. As we arrived and left on a Friday he did the airport run to fetch and and take us back himself. The local bakery is just up the road and supermarkets maybe a 10min walk away. The restaurant Luigi has a deal with for 12 euro is fantastic and the food is fab. Meta is a lovely little town only 3 stops on the train from Sorrento (approx. 5 mins) and approx. 45mins from Naples , its far less touristy then Sorrento and a good base for exploring the Campania region.
We went to loads of different places from this location Paestum, Pompeii, Hercalaneum, Capri, Royal Palace at Caserta, Ischia to name a few with no problems. We would recommend the Villa Castellano to anyone wishing to explore the Sorrento Peninsular and Amalfi Coast and thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will not hesitate to use the Villa again when we return to Italy in the future.

Quiet comfortable apartment in 'real Italy'

Quiet comfortable apartment in 'real Italy'
  • 5 of 5
This was a lovely clean apartment with a spiral staircase and quaint mezzanine bed/bathroom level AND a beautiful terrace sitting/eating area, flowers, interesting bees and charming neighbours. We were met by Luigi who gave us lots of useful information about the town, getting around and good restaurants (Tico Tico on the sea front...those sunsets! and Nanuccio where there was a special E12 deal for us). 50m up the road is Rosario's bakery - get filled croissants for breakfast! and they sell just about everything else as well.
We were 10 mins walk from the station: you can get everywhere from there: Sorrento (then bus or boat to Positano, Amalfi, Ravello) Pompei, Herculaneum, Naples. Meta is a proper little Italian town with narrow cobbled streets, such a change from touristy Sorrento. It was lovely to visit...and then come back to the peace of Meta. Public transport is so efficient and cheap here. I would recommend this place as a great base to explore. Luigi lives at the top of the building so is on hand for any problems and frequently pops around to say hello to everyone.
