What a gem! Perfect location for us, easy bus access to get to Sorrento, Positano and Amalfi. Wonderful restaurant just around the corner. All the amenities you could possibly need, we had a group of four. Theresa, our host was very accomadating and it was lovely to have homemade pizza and wine waiting for our arrival. Definitely would stay again!
Selected this rental based on price, view and previous reviews of the owner. Outstanding on all counts. Teresa met us (wife, teenage daughter and myself) with homemade pizza and filled the refrig with bread, croissants, fresh fruit and bottled water. We loved the location in the small town of Sant'Agata located in the hills between Sorrento and Positano. We rented a car in Napoli but didn't use it much as parking in Sorrento and Amalfi Coast area is a nightmare. Easy, inexpensive bus ride down to Sorrento....taxi's are lots more expensive than in Rome. Nice shopping in Sorrento...daughter ordered custom sandals (45 euros) and we picked them up the next day. Teresa's recommendation for dinner (Annie's) was great (loved the homemade lasagna and lemoncello) and she set us up with a wonderful private boat trip around Capri....worth the extra price over the 25-50 person boats. Everyone warns against driving yourself on the Amalfi Coast...it's not the curves but the very narrow road with cars parked alongside taking up half of each lane and then seeing tour buses coming the other way....and no sidewalks so people are also in the mix...we saw one pedestrian struck by a car mirror. If you rent and drive, make it the smallest car you can fit in....our midsize upgrade was a mistake. Loved our visit...thank you Teresa!
The property is well placed for getting to see this area, it’s located in a small town up in the hills giving an excellent view of Naples Bay and Mount Vesuvius and has plenty of reasonable priced restaurants and shops. Teresa (the owner) is very friendly and always willing to help, she is on hand to advise on getting around, making recommendations on places to visit and what restaurants to try. I can recommend the property as a good base to visit this stunning area.
This awesome apartment has everything you will need, and the view from your own balcony - just like a post card.
The owner Teresa is such a lovely lady, who seems to make it her job to spoil her guests and make them feel very welcome !!!
The local village has a Supermarket, Chemist and several good restaurants and is just a few minutes walk up the road. Sorrento is only about 25 minutes away by local bus that runs regularly.
My daughter and I loved our time here and hope one day to return.
Thank you again Teresa for everything.
We enjoyed our stay here very much. The apartment is in a great location within 5 minutes walk of Sant’Agata centre and with spectacular views of the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius.
We found the apartment light, spacious and comfortable. It was lovely sitting on the balcony with a glass of chilled wine looking across the bay to Mount Vesuvius. Teresa, the owner, lives next door to the apartment and was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. On arrival, she welcomed us with a homemade pizza and a cake made my her daughter - delicious and very welcome after our journey from Naples airport. The apartment soon felt like home but with much nicer views! It had everything we needed - the bed was comfortable and the kitchen well- equipped.
There are some really good bars, cafes and restaurants in Sant’Agata and only 5 minutes walk from the apartment. We had delicious meals in the restaurants recommended by Teresa. Buses run regularly from the town to Sorrento (20-30 minutes journey time). One day we walked from Sant’Agata to Sorrento following a trail through very Italian countryside and it took about an hour. Well worth it for the views.
I definitely recommend this apartment and hope to return myself. We had a really pleasant and memorable stay in Sant’Agata made even better by the friendliness of Teresa.
