“Go back in time and discover a gentler pace of life”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The scenery is so stunning you want to get up as early as possible so as not to waste any time away from the views. It is visual heaven.

This marvelous settings unifies the natural world with the Renaissance dwellings perfectly.

Steve and Kate are the best hosts with the most beautiful house you could wish for to compliment this truly breathtaking landscape. They have invested loads of time and detail into creating this first class property adding playful naturalistic floral Rococo interiors into possibly, the best holiday destination in the Abruzzo region of Italy.

A real moment was when Steve projected European football on to walls of one the buildings at least 5 metres in size and we sat back on the roof terrace attempting to keep focus on who will score the next goal whilst continually being distracted by the real stars floating above in a truly clear sky. Steve informs me he will be showing films on his exterior walls on more occasions.

We will definitely be visiting this place again soon.

“Beautiful place to stay!”
Reviewed 22 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Casa Maieletta is simply stunning, from the Venetian bedroom furniture to the bed linen, the fluffy towels and the lovely Chesterfield sofa in the living room, there isn't anything that Kate and Stephen haven't thought of to make this a special experience. The Casa is set in lovely grounds with different areas to sit and relax and contemplate the scenery, which has to be said is breathtaking, everywhere you look there is a new photo opportunity. There is a shop and bar about a ten minute walk away which serves everything you could possibly need, the owner Maria is lovely, very helpful and a real character, there is also a nearby restaurant , that's within walking distance too. We can't praise this place enough to do it justice, if you enjoy scenery, walking and somewhere off the tourist trail, then try Casa Maieletta, you won't regret it!

“Perfect getaway from the chaos of the tourists on the Amalfi coast”
Reviewed 17 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This is such a wonderful place to stay, we did not get to meet Stephen but Kate was a most gracious hostess and could not have made us feel more at home. Casa Maieletta is very nicely decorated with everything that you need for your stay and we received some local drinks to relax with upon arrival, very nice they were too. The location is great, it is not in a crowded area and it is a short drive to lots of places which are well worth a visit and only about 30-40 minutes from the east coast. Maria's shop is about 1km away and although she does not speak English she's very helpful and you can get everything you need there. Kate and Stephen keep a guest book which you should definitely look through to see where to recommended places to visit are as well as providing lots of literature on the local area. There is a games room with a pool table in, super way to spend an evening in. Pennapiedimonte is a must if you like walking, very easy to park when we were there but take the advice in the guest books on how to get to the parking. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

“We couldn't have chosen better than Casa Maieletta!”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

For our first holiday in a good few years we had to choose carefully, and we couldn't have chosen better than staying with Kate and Stephen. The villa is situated perfectly in the shadow of the mountains and within easy reach of some spectacular and beautiful scenery. Kate is a wonderful host (unfortunately, Stephen was away) and an excellent guide. The villa was well appointed and the perfect size for us, and I t was great to come back after a day exploring and just sit on the veranda and relax.

There is so much more we could mention (Maria's store for one) but whether you want history, scenery, forest or beach - there is so much to choose from usin Casa Maieletta as your base,

It was a perfect holiday, and we're already planning the return trip - see you soon!
