Like staying with family - but only better!
From the lush gardens to the sweeping mountain and city views, the peace and comfort of Accogliente villetta indipendente has all the comforts of home. It is a way to experience Italy at a more relaxed pace, away from the hustle of the cities, but still close enough to reach in a short drive. The location is perfect to reach Napoli, Pompeii, and the Amalfi Coast.
With the well- equipped kitchen and wonderful specialty shops and produce stands just a few minutes away in downtown Sarno, I was able to cook and eat like an Italian. There are also many neighboring pizzerias and cafés. Everything is very convenient.
The villa and gardens are gated and secure. The area is safe and surrounded by olive trees! I enjoyed eating grapes fresh from the vine, and picking figs, pears, lemons, and plums. There are even a few chickens to supply fresh eggs for breakfast. This is a true Garden of Eden.
The villa is quite large and fitted for parties and events. This would easily accommodate a large family or group of friends. I travel with just my dog, a large black lab. Therefore, I didn't fully take advantage of all the villa has to offer, like the pizza oven and BBQ, but I can imagine how lovely a party would be here. In the evenings I enjoyed an almost nightly fireworks display coming from the cities below. It was just lovely.
The most wonderful element of this property is not the space at all, but the warmth of the proprietress and her family. Barbara, Alessandro, and Alfonsina tended to every detail. I feel like I not only got a great deal on a vacation home, but I made new friends too.
Stay in this lovely place and experience a more authentic Italy. You will be glad you did.
