About the property

4-bedroom house with 2 bathrooms, terrace, pool and views of Naples Bay

Fully fitted house renovated in January 2013 with all modern conveniences, exceptional views of Naples Bay and wonderful views of Mount Vesuvius.

4 bedrooms (2 bedrooms on the first floor and 2 on the ground floor) for a total of 8 beds, 2 extra beds in the living room, baby cot at your disposal, 2 bathrooms, very bright and silent kitchen with large table (folding table if necessary), terrace equipped with table, barbecue and deck chairs, pool reserved to the guests with views of Naples Bay and Mount Vesuvius, television, unlimited Internet and parking.

The house is close to interesting sites such as Pompei, Herculaneum, Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi, Capri, Naples, Mount Vesuvius, etc.

The region is wonderful. You can also taste the Neapolitan cuisine which is one of the best in Italy. In Vico Equense is Pizza a metro where pizzas are sold per meter and where you can see the kitchens. There, you can also eat the famous local fish and the excellent pastas. You can taste the best ice creams of the region and maybe of entire Italy at Gabriele in Vici Equense once again.

2 km from the house is the small village of Vico Equense that is less touristic than Sorrento or the other villages of the coast. It offers quiet and family stays. There is no large supermarket (except Auchan in Castellammare) because the locals by their supplies from the small shops (as we did in the past in France) where you can buy very good and very cheap local fruits and vegetables. There are also some cheap minimarkets that have nothing to do with the small expensive food shops in France. My advice: do not arrive with your boot full of food from France and do not stop in Auchan because fruits and vegetables and minimarkets are much better and cheaper in Vico.

House with terrace and views of Mount Vesuvius
average rating of 3.8 based on 10 reviews

Charming house, great view

  • 4 of 5

We (family of five) enjoyed our stay at the house; it was close to things we wanted to visit and do. It is not a detached house as one might surmise from the description, however, the outside area is still spacious and kempt. The dampness mentioned in previous reviews was noticeable (in terms of smell) and visible in some rooms, but it didn’t really bother us. Maybe the damp issues arise because there are no windows in the upstairs bathrooms. Perhaps a cavity wall insulation is needed. Whatever the cause or solution, it is not much of a problem if windows and doors are kept open. The house is fine and the view from the veranda is fantastic. We had a straight view onto Vesuvio and the Gulf of Naples. The wifi worked fine, to the relief of our three children. They also enjoyed the pool. However, given that it is advertised as quality property, the house could have been better equipped and maintained. The cattle was not working and there was no functioning corkscrew, which we brought to the attention of the owner on the day of arrival (the cattle was replaced). A few additional items in the kitchen would not go amiss either, including wine glasses (which we bought), a toaster, a good/sharp chopping knife, and perhaps under cabinet lights as most of the cooking is done in the evening when it’s getting dark outside. Torn shower curtains, unhinged toilet seats, and loose fittings (e.g., in shower) slightly spoil the otherwise good impression the house makes.

Nearby Vico Equense is lovely. This is where we took the children for ice cream, did most of our grocery shopping, and where we went for great pizza (try Da Cardone!). There is a big Auchan store in Pompei (approx. 15 minutes by car) where parking is less of a hassle than in Vico Equense. The nearest beach (Bikini beach) is less than a 10 minute walk away, however, you have to pay to use the beach (more than €50 per day for a family of five). There are two free beaches (spiaggia libera; e.g., Pozzano beach) only a few minutes away (drive towards Castellammare di stabia) and one in Meta. The latter is not great though, and a little awkward to get to. The drive to Sorrento can easily take up to an hour in the evening. We had a great meal on the harbour at Ristorante O’Puledrone (Via Marina Grande 150) where they serve great seafood at affordable prices. Ercolano (approx. 30 minutes by car) and the old town of Naples are well worth a visit, too. The deposit (€1,000) was returned in less than a week.

When booking this family holiday we only looked for properties which had 4 bedrooms. When we arrived at the property there were only three bedrooms available. The fourth was not usable because of the severe damp. It was clear that this room had a damp problem for some time as there were several items which suggested this room had been used for storage for some period and in fact the black walls also suggested that there had been a damp problem for some time. We slept in the room above and the bed in this room was uncomfortably damp.

We understand that these problems arise but we would have expected to have been told that this problem existed at least a month before our departure as it would have been clear to the owners well in advance of our arrival that this room was uninhabitable. If we had been told this we would have cancelled and stayed elsewhere.

This was our family holiday and because it is very rare that we can all get together at the same time (one of our daughters lives in Los Angeles) we all hid our disappointment and made the best of our holiday because of course by that time the house was paid for and there was nothing else we could do. The damp was of course the worst problem, but there were others. Our son in law follows sport keenly and was disappointed to find there was no TV as was indicated in the house details. It was very cramped and we all agreed that this was in reality a 2 bedroom house, 3 bedroom if the damp room had been available. In addition the outside area was more restricted than appears in the photographs.

We made no complaint at the time of leaving because this was mid-way through our holiday and we were keen for the return of the very large deposit on our return. The deposit was excessive for the quality of the house.

The star is for the magnificent view.

Owner's Response: Dear Maria i have read now your complaint and I am very sad about it.we have just before you came spend one week in the house to clean it from top to down. I have personally wash all the beds the windows tissu and all the cover. I worked one week hard to leave you a house very clean. About the bedroom less I do that because you asked me only for 3 rooms and I prefer ed changed the little room because it was a good think . I do it because you told me before you needed only 3 rooms. About television we have remove it to clean but it was in the little room you should have take it and just put on electricity. And if you didn't want to do it by yourself you should have told me and I was be able to come or asked to a friend. The television is OK it was just in the other room . Why did you not tell me? And there is Internet free in all the house!!!!!! To see television !!!! With Vesuvio and Golf of Naples just in front .... I see you have wait to have deposit to tell me the you think too that i am not a honest person? It is not a large deposit all the things in the house costs a lot. This year someone has broken the sun umbrella outside and when I saw it it was too late..but I have gave back the money to everyone. And after you the kitchen table near the gas where damage but I give you the money the same. You are free to write what you want.i don't understand why you didn't write to me when you were there or why you didn't tell me nothing when we saw the day you leave. This days I am not very well by health and now with all succeed in France I have forgetten to write to you before, so I regret you were not well in our house .but it would have been more honest to yell me when we met. Have a good day Helene

Une vue imprenable !

  • 4 of 5

Très belle villa italienne en aplomb de la mer avec vue magnifique sur le Vésuve, la baie de Naples, et le coucher de soleil devant Capri. Barbecue très appréciable et bons commerces de proximité à Vico. Linge propre et literie confortable. Accueil sympathique de la propriétaire qui parle le français. Wifi impeccable. Quelques soucis d'humidité dans les pièces d'eau mais gérable en aérant bien. Villa bien située pour les visites de Pompei, du Vesuve et la cote amalfitaine.

Séjour très agréable!

  • 5 of 5

La maison est très agréable, vue magnifique, quartier très calme, sites archéologiques très accessibles. La petite ville de Vico Equense est toute proche (20 min à pied par un chemin sur la colline) ou voiture. C'est un lieu de séjour reposant et dépaysant, les commerçants sont charmants et on y trouve tous les services.

Nos hôtes ont été très disponibles et serviables! Merci encore Hélène pour votre accueil et les services rendus!

C'est un bord de mer, donc il est normal de ressentir une certaine humidité mais pour notre séjour en avril et ses nuits fraîches le chauffage a été très performant. Il a fait très beau et chaud en journée, la terrasse et les bains de soleil ont été très appréciés!

A week in Soutghern Italy

  • 3 of 5

Helene was very helpful. She communicated well and responded promptly to questions I had.

The view was as advertised. Beautiful!

The road up to the house was not as difficult as I feared- made it no problems. Nice place to park in front which can be a problem sometimes.

Location was good- but traffic into Sorrento can be challenging sometimes making the trip longer.

Loved our visit to southern Italy.
