About Paola & John
We are a mix of native Napolitan and Italo/English. We like to travel experience new places and especially try new foods. Over the years we've had the pleasure of meeting many new people, from all over the world, and we look forward to welcoming you to stay in our home and enjoying our city.
Why Paola & John chose Vittorio Emanuele
La Salotta has been created from part of our what has been our extended family's home for over 50 yrs. We have decided to share what we have always enjoyed, a perfect location to enjoy our energetic city yet a home both tranquil and secure. We hope you will enjoy it too.
What makes this Apartment unique
The stand out features are the extra large studio room with south facing windows and balcony that look over the whole of the Golfo di Napoli (Bay of Naples). The views are trully stunning taking in the volcano Vesuvio, Capri and Port of Mergelina. Very close by (5mins) you can catch the funicular up to Vomero, the quartiere above us or down to the heart of our quartiere, Chiaia. Switch over to the Metro and you can visit most of Napoli and its historic sites.

Hosts are great people
Lovely place. Very well maintained. Thank you for your hospitality and advice!
Perfect in every way
This is a wonderful apartment with a spectacular, 180 degree, view over the Bay of Naples. Paola and John are perfect hosts and the apartment had everything we needed for a truly memorable three-week stay.

Our hosts were very helpful and the apartment was wonderful.
Beautiful views and a fairly quiet neighborhood.
The best decision I made planning our trip
This is an elegant and very comfortable property with two gracious and welcoming hosts. Everything was spotless. It was well designed and equipped with everything we needed. The views from the balcony were breathtaking. What a delight to see the city and the famous Bay of Naples, including Vesuvius and the island of Capri in the distance. It's a nice neighbourhood and we had no problem getting around the city. All in all an excellent choice and I'd like to say once again how grateful we are to Paola and John for their hospitality, and we are already looking forward to our next visit.
Bright and airy studio with great views
We took a taxi from the airport to the studio. Paola and John were waiting on the pavement to greet us, which at 11.30pm was rather welcome. John is bilingual in english and italian and Paola's english is very good. Because we were late they had made us some supper, which included a bottle of beer which we shared sitting at the table on the balcony looking out over the city. They had also got things for breakfast the following morning. The studio is a big and airy room with lovely large windows and the balcony. You look out over the Bay of Naples and can see the constant coming and going of ships. It was wonderful. You can also see the Centro Historica and the Spanish Quarter from the balcony. We almost didn't choose the studio because at 3km from the centre of town we thought it too far from the action, but we would have been quite wrong. There is a funicular right by the flat and taxis and as long as you agree on the fares beforehand they are not expensive. We got four taxis when we were in Naples and the only expensive one was the one we forgot to agree the fare on. The studio is delightful. Paola was a art conservationist and the furnishing is clean, simple and well laid out, and there are a number of individual solutions to the practical aspects of sectioning off the room which are ergonomically satisfying and visually so too. I particularly liked the wonderful and large chandelier. Paola and John were a delight. They were so kind; they helped us put together an itinerary, suggested where best to eat and organised a taxi for us when we left. We were in Italy for a week and at the studio for three nights. It was a really good beginning to our holiday.
We are located in the quartiere Chiaia half way up from the sea and Vomero. Our road is one of the logest in Napoli and runs across the hill.
We are in a 'parco' (Napolitan for private road with several buildings and an entrance gate). Our building is set back from the road, in a raised position, and is very tranquil and secure 24hr guard on the gate.
Our apartment faces south and the Golfo di Napoli from the windows and private balcony you can enjoy 180 degree views of the Golfo of Napoli from Vesuvio in the east to Posillipo in the west with Capri straight ahead.
We can provide information and advice on visiting the sites of Napoli and surrounds
