The road, which leads to the villa, is wide and straight, suitable for both small or mid-sized cars. The entrance of Villa Giuliapina takes you straight into the lounge, where there is a comfortable sofa and an opportunity to relax by the fireplace. The lounge is large, beautiful and well furnished with tables, chairs and attention to detail. Two of the sofas can be made into single beds. In the lounge, there are sliding doors, which provide access to the outdoor area and patio. The patio is large enough to accommodate a long table which can seat up to 12 people.

The four bedrooms are located on this floor on the left hand side of the long corridor. Each of the 4 bedrooms has its own ensuite bathroom (3 have a shower and 1 has a bath tub and a shower). Two of the bedrooms have double beds and 2 of the bedrooms have beds which can be made into double or twin beds. An extra bed can be added to one of the bedrooms. Every bedroom has its own access to the large terrace which has splendid views of Vesuvius, Ischia and the bay of Naples.

From the ground floor, you can access the terrace externally. The swimming pool is an above ground pool (6.30 metres long x 4 metres wide x 1.45 metres deep).

"The villa was perfect!"

The villa was perfect and the way we were looked after by Carmine was fantastic. We booked boat trips, restaurants, home cooked dinners and Pizza Parties all through Carmine who could not have been more helpful. A truly relaxing way to spend two weeks in Italy and celebrate my 50th birthday and wedding anniversary with family and friends.

"Everything was fabulous!!"

We had a wonderful vacation. The villa was beautiful with unbelievable views. Carmine was terrific. He made sure every detail was perfect and was a wonderful host (and great chef !) Everything was arranged for us so we didn't have to worry about anything. We visited Positano, Ravello, Amalfi, Pompeii, Herculaneum, Sorrento and Salerno. One of the highlights was a visit to Tramonti where we had a special visit with Gaetano, toured his vineyard and had a wonderful lunch with his family. The other was a visit to a family owned Mozzarella factory where my family made our own Mozzarella ! Overall a fabulous time and highly recommended !! Thank you Alfonso and of course Carmine

"Just a wonderful memorable holiday!"

It is now a week on from leaving the villa and we are definitely having withdrawal symptoms! I could nit-pick and find some minor faults but that is to be expected with self-catering - too many people expect hotal levels of accommodation, which is unrealistic. The villa was very spacious, clean and reasonably well-equipped. All the rooms opened out on to the breathtaking views and that was brilliant on its own. However, what wins for us was its location, location, location! First, its hillside location afforded the most amazing views over Sorrento and across the Bay Of Naples to Vesuvius. At night, this view lit up to leave us mesmerised. It was just great to stand in the pool, leaning on the side and looking down on this sight. Amazing! Then it was the proximity of the villa to everything you need. It was very close to Sorrento and just a 10 minute walk from the nearest bus stops and the wonderful little town of Sant 'Agata. This town has everything you might need including some of the freshest food shops and some great restaurants. We did have a car throughout our stay, which was useful with two teenagers in tow. However, if it was just the two of us we wouldn't have needed a car. With the buses so close, you can literally get anywhere on the bus or train, and very cheaply. If its just a relaxing time in a villa that you need then you certainly won't need a car as everything is in such easy reach. Having said all of that, don't be under the impression that the villa is near a noisy road or town. This villa was in one of the most quietest locations. It is not near any busy road, no noisy neighbours or in a noisy town. The only noise you have to contend with is that rising up from Sorrento a mile away below, but even that was fascinating, to listen to the town at night and hear the buzz of its nightlife. If walking is your thing then, again, its a great location, smack on a walking route, with Sorrento one way and Sant Agata the other. If going, pick up a walking map from the excellent tourist office in Sant 'Agata. The pool at the villa was just great. It wasn't huge but big enough for a swim. Just to jump into the pool after a hot and sweaty day out at Pompeii was second to none. We made full use of the pool and it was used to the full every day. Then we get to Carmine. A great character who will ensure your stay is great. He will organise almost anything. On our arrival he arranged for a car to pick us up (free!) to take us to a restaurant for lunch, which had this fantastic view across to Capri. The driver was the restaurant owner who then took us back to the villa after lunch. Carmine organised two special events. Firstly he cooked us a wonderful meal full of the local flavours with enough to last us for the following evening. It was the best! Then he organised a private boat trip around Capri with a guy called Antonio. This was a very memorable day, regularly stopping for a swim in the sea and taking us close to all the Grottos. Finally, Alfonso did a great job for us. His communications were quick and full of the information that we needed. He suggested this villa. We were a bit dubious at first, and it was a little over our budget, but we are glad we went with his advice. Just a wonderful memorable holiday in a great country where the locals were friendly, helpful and fun!

"We hope to be able to return again!"

Just back from 5 Nights at Villa Giuliapina! The pictures on the website do not do it justice! The view of the ocean and Mt. Vesuvuous were spectacular as was the inside of the villa. We are a family of 5 and there was more than enough room. We can't thank Carmine enough for his outstanding service from the many many questions I had before arrival to all that he arranged for us..... boat to Capri, reservations and transport to Don Alfonso (not to be missed) grocery shopping and the FABULOUS dinner he and his wife Alessandra prepared for my daughters 18th birthday it was so delicious we ate the leftovers for breakfast!!! Carmine checked in with us daily to see what we needed he even came over at 10:00pm when I blew a fuse! The vacation wouldn't have been the same without him! I highly recommend the villa you will not be disappointed with the villa or the exceptional service. We hope to be able to return again.

"Spacious and clean villa"

Very spacious accommodation for 8 persons, great view of Sorrento Bay, easy 10 min walk to the boutique town of San Agata for restaurants and supplies, more strenuous hike down 350m to Sorrento, or 20 min drive. Carmine cooked us a wonderful typical Italian dinner for us, and arranged all trips to restaurants and sight seeing on little notice, he is an amazing guy.

"Lovely villa"

My extended family and I stay at this villa for a week in July 2015. The villa was lovely and spacious. All the pictures were representative of the villa. The view from the villa was beautiful and it was very nice to have lots of windows to take advantage of the view from nearly every room in the villa. The villa was very clean and comfortable. Plenty of room to accommodate our family of 4 adults and 2 children. My only word of caution is the road leading to the villa. I was not prepared for how steep and narrow the road would be. Besides the difficult driving situation, we had a wonderful and relaxing time in Sorrento. It is a beautiful area and we had the opportunity to take some side trips to Positano, Capri and Pompeii. A wonderful trip and very nice accommodations.

"The swimming pool & terraces were elegant and kept well with spectacular views"

Please translate and give our thanks to Senora Pina and Senore Alfonso for making our stay at the villa so wonderful. They kept the villa and grounds immaculate and gorgeous flowers everywhere lovingly tended. The swimming pool & terraces were elegant and kept well with spectacular views. We enjoyed their company immensely and they greatly enhanced our experience of local Italy. Pina also found my 600$ prescription sunglasses I inadvertently left behind and gave to the last departing member of our family, a hugely appreciated "save"! Please send them our love and gratitude to Pina and Alfonso.

"We highly recommend this Villa to anyone traveling to Amalfi Coast"

The villa was beyond our expectations and the photos on the internet don't do it justice. It is a little piece of Heaven! To make it even more special. The day we arrived from a long 24 hours of travel, Carmine cooked for us and made us feel at home. We had Carmine cook for us 2 more times, finishing with a feast you will find no where else on the Amalfi. Squash blossoms and involtini to die for! Our trip would not have been the same without this local experience and food. We plan to come back to the villa and can't wait for more of Carmine hospitality and cuisine! The villa itself is a treasure with mid-century Modern Italian architecture, decoration and tile. Local tiles from the Amalfi are throughout the house. The views are stunning. We highly recommend this Villa to anyone traveling to Amalfi coast.
