“Thanks again - we really enjoyed our stay”

Alfonso was a super kind host and Gioanni who gave us the keys and showed us the aprarment was extremely friendly and gave us some really nice tips to explore the Amalfi coast. The apartment offers a truly stunning view across the sea and the coastline - especially recommended for romantic sun downers.

"La estancia en Villa Bárbara ha sido estupenda!"

La casa súper equipada, no le faltaba de nada. Teníamos café, tostadas, mermeladas, nutella, aceite.... Un entorno tranquilo y precioso. Éramos dos matrimonios con dos hijos, en total 8 personas y hemos disfrutado mucho grandes y pequeños, los niños en el jacuzzi que tienen en el jardín se lo han pasado genial! y nosotros también. Alfonso, el anfitrión, una persona excepcional, muy atento y amable con todas nuestras dudas y aconsejándonos sobre la zona. La ubicación de la casa para visitar Pompeya, Ercolano, Capri y Costa Amalfitana es relativamente cercana, siempre en coche. Nuevamente Alfonso muchas gracias por tu amabilidad y tener una casa en la que nos hemos encontrado como en casa.

Our accommodation was large, clean and comfortable. There are lovely views, nice areas to be outside and lounge in the sun. Parking is very secure and handy. Excellent support from the hosts with bus tickets and advice enabling us to do the things we wanted to. It is a very friendly welcoming community. Anna, Alphonso's sister is a super host.

"Very peaceful place in crowded Sorrento area"

This is a hidden gem in mountains, very beautiful sunset view and comparing other places very quite. There is own big private parking space, big terrace and small garden. Apartments are quite big, clean with classic Italian style. Kitchen was very useful with all necessary equipment. I recommend to travel with a car, only a few restaurants and little shops are nearby. Good location if you want to travel around a little bit and have a private quite romantic vacation.

"Lovely place to stay."

Located in the Monte Lattari mountains, not far from Vico Equense, with a nice view on the bay of Napels and the island Ischia. We have seen many beautiful sunsets. We have been most warmly welcomed by Anna at the Massa bar in Moiano, who took care us during our stay. We had a very pleasant time in this small town. Although it takes some time to get used to the Italians style of driving in the mountains, it is s good starting point to explore the Naples area.

"Nous avons passé de merveilleuses vacances"

L'accueil fut très agréable (autant par Alfonso que par Anna et Giovanni) et l'appartement correspond parfaitement aux photos. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié la situation géographique, en retrait de la ville et néanmoins à proximité de petits commerces/points d'intérêt (pizzeria délicieuse, bar, épicerie, arrêt de bus, etc.). On rejoint les villages de la côte amalfitaine assez facilement en voiture, Sorrento n'est pas loin. Possibilité de rejoindre le haut de la baie de Naples par le bus + train si besoin. Alfonso est toujours à l'écoute et très réactif en cas de question ! Nous avons passé de merveilleuses vacances dans la région, où les habitants nous ont conquis par leur gentillesse.
