"Great week!"

Alfonso at Naples Villas provided an excellent and professional service with our booking, answering any queries about the property or local area promptly. The local manager, also Alfonso, was a great host and very friendly. He was always available providing help with groceries, taxis, local services, boat trips and assistance around the villa. We had a great week and wished we could have stayed longer!

"The villa owners are wonderful people and enjoyed their gracious assistance"

We were a group of 11 and rented three of the five apartments for two absolutely fabulous weeks. The accommodations were clean, comfortable and well maintained. Alfonso and Marco were immediately responsive to any and all of our needs, providing shuttle service to the beach and local restaurants, helping us arrange boat trips to tour Amalfi & Positano one day and Capri on another. Their mother, Olga, has an Alimentari market right across the street and she was most gracious in answering any of my questions to help the group plan our says. I highly recommend the villa for anyone looking for a get away experience on the Sorrentine peninsula. The private beach platform down at Marina Del Cantone is great though it should be noted that it is not accessible to anyone with limited nobility since one has to walk up and down a good number of steps, however, the pool at the villa is glorious and more than sufficient for sunbathing and swimming. Rent this villa and be ready for a wonderful time!, Alfonso, Thank you for all your help. As as I said we had a fabulous time. The villa owners are wonderful people and enjoyed their gracious assistance.

"Much love and thanks to you all!"

I just wanted to say that this was my favorite place of my entire trip to Italy this summer! I wish I could have stayed there for months and find myself dreaming of my chance to return for my next visit with you all again. The hospitality and warmth was amazing! You all made me feel like I was your long lost relative from America. I appreciated all the rides and the wonderful accommodations. You have a wonderful place and the views are so beautiful! I miss shopping at Market and her limoncello. Let me know if you ever will ship my grocery list to me stateside. Everyone is missing out on so much if they don't stay with you and see Nerano and Capri. Much love and thanks to you all!
