We recently spent the last five days of our 3 week Italian vacation in Sant Agata at this lovely apartment owned by Maria and Giovanni who were the greatest hosts you can ask for and have left us with a very memorable experience of the small town Italian culture that we had not experienced in Florence, Sienna and Rome.
The location is perfect for day trips to the Almafi Coast, Sarrento, Capri, Pompei and Naples. Giovanni was able to arrange for the transportation at a reasonable cost and convenience to all of these locations.
The apartment was VERY clean and although there were only 2 of us, it would be an ideal place for a family. It had a big kitchen and a huge outdoor patio with a great view of the Bay of Salerno and outdoor brick cooking oven and grill.
Maria and Giovanni even made dinner reservations for us and had the restaurants come and pick us up at the apartment. With my wife and I being of Italian descent, we were both reminded of how our parents and grandparents made family the most important part of our lives thru the hospitality and warmth that Maria and Giovanni shared with us.
If you want a realistic, non touristy taste of the Italian small town familia culture, look no further!!!
Thank you for the lovely words you have spent for us! It was a pleasure meeting you!
Prettily decorated and comfortable apartment with large, lovely outdoor area. Maria makes it very welcoming. Owners live above the apartment, and can arrange transportation for dinner and a boat tour of the coast; other things as well, which is a convenience. Be forewarned, though, that - to the American sensibility - Giovanni’s communication style can come across as overbearing. One of those personalities that sucks the air out of a room. He was very helpful, though.
Great location for visiting all the Amalfi coast has to offer. Loved the village of Sant Agata .
Maria & Giovanni are so lovely & helpful. They helped us with directions for buses & restaurants. The house has everything you need for a base for an exploring holiday. Just a few minutes walk into the village of Sant Agata for great bars & restaurants.
We stayed at the apartment for 2 weeks and found the apartment lovely to stay in. The host were very helpful if we needed anything and made suggestions for trips and how to get around. They arranged transport for us from the airport and back again which removed the hassle for us.
Eating outside under the permanent gazebo was perfect.
The location is in a lovely little town away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist spots so offers guests a nice quiet base to explore from, there is a daily bus which goes to Sorrento as long as you don't mind the 30 min journey up and down to Sorrento, from which there you can catch a train to explore Napoli, Herculaneum, pompei and other areas.
The only thing I would improve on would be some fans maybe to help keep the bedrooms cool during the hot weather and I found the beds a little too uncomfortable for me.
perfect location to stay for visiting the Amalfi coast, the owners where the perfect hosts, extremely helpful in planning various visits. the villa was lovely in a lovely relaxing setting.
lovely restaurants nearby. Would definitely recommend.
Beautiful View in a lovely location
We loved this home. The space was great for the 6 of us. Although, if we were there longer we would have wanted a bigger common area.
The hosts were amazing. They booked tours for us and private transfers to and from the airport. They also went to the meeting point of or tours every day with us to make sure we got on the right one. Some amenities like firewood and heat are extra if you use them, be aware. But overall, for the price and hospitality, it was a wonderful stay.
