Pleasant location but disappointing accommodation

  • 3 of 5

The photos of the villa interior lead guests to believe that they will be staying in the main building. The actual accommodation is in the "garden annex". The bedrooms and bathroom upstairs have low ceilings and one bedroom has only a curtain to seal it off. The kitchen is poorly equipped. But the location is quiet and convenient for visiting local attractions.

Mixed experience - part good, part bad

  • 3 of 5

Quiet property. Photos misleading - accommodation is in garden annex, not main building. Upper floor has low ceilings (bang heads) and one bedroom only has curtain door. Kitchen poorly equipped - blunt cutlery and no microwave. Poor value for money.

A garden of calm on the slopes of Vesuvio

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed in the coach house of Villa Raffaella on the outskirts of Ercolano for 3 nights; it was a perfect base for exploring Mount Vesuvio and the ruins of Ercolano, the Oplontis Villa, Pompeii and provided secure parking overnight. The coach house is situated in a private garden close to the main villa, and very quiet. in the evening. The owner Sonia lives in the main villa and she was extremely helpful in giving us directions for all of the main sights; there is a good restaurant within walking distance of the house, and a large modern supermarket and shopping complex within a few minutes drive.

Le calme au pied du Vésuve

  • 4 of 5

Location conforme au descriptif. Accueil très sympathique de Sonia dans cette magnifique résidence. Le jardin est magnifique et entretenu tous les jours. La dépendance où nous logions est climatisée dans chaque pièce, ce qui est très appréciable avec la chaleur qui règne sur Naples. Nous avons pu visiter tous les sites majeurs autour de la maison, un peu retirée du centre d'Ercolano mais nous pouvions descendre à pied au centre ville et le train n'est qu'à 15 minutes à pied de la location.

A recommander en famille pour se détendre loin de l'agitation de la ville de Naples et profiter des charmes et de la richesse historique de la région. Merci Sonia pour votre hospitalité et celle de vos parents.

Ferien inmitten von Orangenbäumen

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eben eine Woche mit unseren Kindern bei Sonia verbracht. Die Wohnung ist grosszügig und in einem sehr schönen Garten gelegen. Wir durften täglich Orangen pflücken - sehr zur Freude unserer Kinder. Sonia war sehr hilfsbereit und dennoch diskret. Die Lage ist ausgezeichnet für Ausflüge nach Neapel, Herkulanuem und Pompeji aber auch an die Amalfiküste.

Wir können diese Ferienwohnung besten Gewissens weiterempfehlen und hoffen, dass auch wir eines Tages wieder einmal in der Villa Raffaela zu Gast sein werden.

Owner's Response: Annette e la sua famiglia sono stati ospiti gradevoli e simpatici. La loro conoscenza della lingua italiana ci ha permesso di comunicare bene e i bambini che giocavano in giardino sono stati di buona compagnia. Spero di rivederli presto. Annette and her family were guests pleasant and friendly. Their knowledge of the Italian language allowed us to communicate well and the children playing in the garden were good company. I hope to see them again soon.
