Casa Dorotea is a spacious and elegant apartment situated in a tranquil area but only a few minutes from the town centre of Meta di Sorrento. It is approximately 180 metres squared and can sleep up to 7 people in 3 bedrooms (one guest on a sofabed in the lounge - extra charges will apply). Casa Dorotea features a private garden, a private terrace, a private patio, air conditioning and winter heating in every room and Wi-Fi Internet access.

While staying at Casa Dorotea, you will be in the seventeenth-century historic centre of Meta di Sorrento. The closest restaurant, a grocery store and the bus stop for the EAV bus are 400 metres (1300 feet) away. This bus will take you to Sorrento's Marina Piccola (port) and Sorrento's train station where you can get trains to Pompeii and Naples or buses to Positano and Amalfi. The closest beach is roughly 800 meters (half a mile) from Casa Dorotea. 

Casa Dorotea is located on the first floor and is one of three apartments in the block. It is accessible from the garden via an external staircase with approximately 20 steps. 

The lounge is paved with characteristic terracotta tiles. The modern furnishings are stylish and comfortable. There are two large sofas and a satellite television. An extra bed can be added in the lounge (on request and extra charges may apply). The room has two windows with a view of the garden and the terrace. It is equipped with air conditioning/heating. The dining room is accessible from the lounge room and has a dining table which can accommodate 6 guests.

Leading off the dining room is the recently refurbished kitchen. It is well equipped with a four-burner gas cooker, an electric oven, a refrigerator with a freezer, a dishwasher and an Italian-style coffee-maker. The kitchen has a window with a view of the garden. Next to the kitchen, there is a small, partially covered terrace where there is a washing machine.

You can access the beautiful en-suite bedroom from the living room. The bedroom has a double bed (160 cm/62 inches, wider than a queen-size bed). The room has a window with a view of the private patio below the villa and the private garden with homegrown vegetables. The bedroom is equipped with a TV and air conditioning/heating. This bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, equipped with a washbasin, a flat screen TV, a toilet and a bathtub with shower and a Jacuzzi. You can even watch the television whilst you enjoy a hydromassage!

You can access the second bedroom from the corridor. It has twin beds (80 cm/32 inches) and a view of the garden. The bedroom is equipped with a flat screen TV and air conditioning/heating. The bathroom has a washbasin, a toilet, a fully enclosed shower and a hairdryer. It is accessible from the corridor. There is French window which gives access onto the terrace, facing the garden. 

The terrace is 40 metres squared and is accessible from the lounge through sliding French doors. It is equipped with a table, chairs, sun loungers and a BBQ. From the terrace, you will have a view of the garden below and of the other buildings in the surrounding area but you will have your own privacy. Here you can relax with a drink and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. 

There is a third bathroom with a washbasin and a toilet. At the end of the corridor, there is a third bedroom, which also has a view of the garden. This is a double room but the beds can be separate to make it a twin. The bedroom is equipped with a flat screen TV and air conditioning/heating.

The private garden is 400 metres squared and is partly shaded by tall palm and lemon trees. It has a hammock and sun loungers where you can relax and enjoy the sunshine. Next to the garden is the private patio which is furnished with tables and chairs and covered to provide shade.

You will not need a car to stay at Casa Dorotea but if you do have one, you may be able to park it free of charge, off the road, only 30 metres away. Alternatively, you can park one car in a 'pay and display' car park, (approximately 100 metres away) on request.

tolle Wohnung mit vielen Möglichkeiten

Sehr schöne und saubere Wohnung, wie auf den Bildern. Der beste Platz ist der Balkon, ein Traum. Guter Ausgangspunkt für die Region Amalfiküste, Neapel, Pompeji,... Zug- und Bus-Haltestelle nur ein paar hundert Meter entfernt. Strand 20 Minuten Fussweg. Meta ist nicht touristisch, der Ort und Straßenverkehr echt italienisch. Die Wohnung liegt und ist aber sehr ruhig.

Elegant apartment situated in a tranquil area near Sorrento

Picked up daughter from studying abroad and with my wife and her sister and husband decided to visit the Amalfi Coast and chose Casa Dorotea in Meta, Italy for its proximity to Sorrento, and the Amalfi Coast. The property had 3 bedrooms and 3 baths and enough space to accommodate our crew in style. The accommodations were superior and the massive veranda was so serene especially early in the morning to the sounds of roosters and church bells to begin the day. The one thing to be aware of for anyone with mobility issues is the walk to the train station is a gradual incline along local cobblestone streets, parts of which do not have sidewalks. As indicated in other reviews I would not attempt to drive in this area and the train station is within walking distance for easy access to Sorrento and the beautiful Amalfi Coast. Casa Dorotea is a tranquil escape from the madness of this beautiful part of Italy and as stated earlier do it in style.

"Lovely apartment good access to other areas by train and good restaurants nearby"

We had a lovely time at Casa Dorotea. It’s a lovely spacious apartment in a very convenient location for the trains and a fantastic set of restaurants close by. The layout and look of the apartment were lovely. It was lovely to be able to sit outside warm and comfy in the storms we had last week and when the weather was great to look out over the bay and mountains over the lemon groves was stupendous.

"We really enjoyed the apartment"

Casa Dorotea is a very stylishly furnished apartment with beautiful view views over the green hills around Meta di Sorrento. We really enjoyed the apartment and spent quite a few nights there cooking for ourselves. Their terrace is heavenly. It is a 20 minute walk down the hill to the local beach and a short walk to the train station that takes you on a very short ride to Sorrento. Meta itself is very small, compact and quiet.

"I highly recommend this villa to anyone!"

Spacious, beautiful property, great location, great views and a private garden to relax in. The owner of the property lived here at one time and spared no expense with the detail of the property. She was always available and even invited us to lunch at her home for a real Italian meal. I highly recommend this villa to anyone that wants to stay in upscale accommodations at a reasonable price. You will not be disappointed!
