We had an excellent holiday at Villa Contessina. The villa and garden are delightful - they are a hidden and spacious oasis in the middle of an otherwise busy Sorrento. The villa was spotless and had everything we needed, and the location is great - lots of restaurants with trains and ferries only a few minutes' walk away (we had a car for half of our stay but you could manage happily without).
Anastasia and her mother were perfect hosts, and the fantastic food left for our lunch on arrival was an unexpected delight!
We would wholeheartedly recommend the villa, and hope to return ourselves before too long.
This villa was fantastic. I had my wedding in Sorrento and decided to get a Villa close to the town centre as it was easier access for the family. This isthe best located villa there is in Sorrento.
The owner Anastastia and her mother were the best hosts. Endless limoncella and cakes! They allowed us to hold a small 'henna' party for my guests and an Indian wedding ceremony. I couldn't have asked for anything more.
They were always there to help and we had no problems whatsoever.
I would definitely recommend this villa for a family holiday. It was close to the main square, shops and restaurants...everything was on the doorstep.
Thanks Anastastia ...Reshma & Andrew
Villa la Contessina is absolutely beautiful. It's perfectly located; in a quiet area well within a short walking distance to shopping, restaurants, the train station and grocery store. it's also about a block away from a lift that takes you down to the ferries at Marina Piccola. It was well appointed and more spacious than it would appear from looking at the floor plan on the Internet. It accommodated all eight of us very well. Don't let the thin European mattresses worry you. They're very comfortable. The gardens are perfectly manicured and the upstairs balcony is perfect for enjoying a glass of wine. It was still a bit cool the end of April, so we were also pleased that the living room was spacious enough for all of us to gather without crowding. The kitchen was equipped well enough for cooking, but we found plenty of good restaurants and ate out every night. If you want your espresso or cappuccino every morning, there is a great non-touristy cafe bar on the adjacent square. The owner was very welcoming, gracious and accommodated our need for an early morning Saturday departure. I would definitely recommend Villa la Contessina to friends and family. I don't know if we'll ever have an opportunity to return, but I would happily stay at the Villa again.
We absolutely loved our stay. The home was very well kept, and nicely furnished, with comfortable beds, really nothing more that you could ask for. The grounds were very well kept and provided for great out door dinning.....the location is simply amazing...restaurants, grocery stores, train station, taxi's , ferries to Capri, and the Amalfi coast are all within walking distance. We wouldn't hestitate to recomend staying here, in fact we will definitely stay here on our next visit to Sorrento and the surrounding area.
