Amazing property, location, and stunning views
Just returned from a week at the villa in July 2019 and wow, the villa has everything you need and has stunning views looking down on to Sorrento and the bay beyond.
Bruno was excellent and extremely helpful when needed during our stay. He met us at a local supermarket and escorted us to villa pointing out local restaurants during the short journey. We visited a couple of nearby restaurants (Le Collins di Sorrento and Ristorante da Gaetano Vino Vero) and found them to be worth a visit with friendly staff and superb food.
Emilio (the owner) was really helpful and during his early morning visits to look after the pool he even brought us fresh pastries, which we devoured with delight.
Whilst we were at the villa the weather was hot during the day, but we found the bedrooms (located on the ground floor) to be cool and had no trouble sleeping.
The villa is located high on a hill outside of Sorrento, about 5 minutes from Sorrento by car - but the roads are narrow with lots of parked cars and the numerous scooters swarming around. There is a path down to Sorrento through lemon groves and narrow lanes which gives access to a local supermarket - but beware the route back is all up hill and in hot weather can be draining.
We will certainly be looking to return to this villa again in future.
We all agreed that the incredible, ever-changing views from Villa Gaia were one of the highlights of our 2-week stay in Sorrento. The villa is very spacious and comfortable and had everything we needed. We were a bit concerned about the lack of air con but it wasn't necessary, even in 30C+ heat. It's a bit difficult to find - Emilio and Gaia had to come and find us on their motorcycle - and access by car is a bit tricky - not for the faint-hearted parker! Emilio is lovely and brought us fresh pastries every morning when he came to clean the pool, which was very generous and welcome. We enjoyed the informality of Le Colline and the free Carsalona music festival (in August), a short walk down the road. The only extra we would have appreciated on day one from Emilio was instructions on where to shop for food and where to park in Sorrento, but we worked it out. We loved our stay here and would highly recommend.
A beautiful Villa
We spent 2 weeks at the villa in late July 2018 and it was a marvellous place to enjoy a relaxing break in the sun . The villa itself has everything you need and has stunning views across the bay looking down on Sorrento , with beautiful sunsets to enjoy every evening . The location is more suitable for those having a car but be aware the road is narrow to the villa and parked cars mean it is not possible to access the parking at the villa with anything but a very small car . This was not advertsised . We didn't want to hire a car so tended to walk down the narrow cobbled Via Festola to the centre which took about 30 minutes all downhill . Be careful of the scooters and cars coming up and down past you as they dont slow down lol . Once in Sorrento you can enjoy wonderful shopping and dining facilities before taking a taxi back to the villa which takes just over 5 minutes . It is very expensive compared to the UK , the fare was anything fro 24-28 Euros for the journey so walking down and taxi back was preferable to us bearing in mind we stocked up at the supermarket each time . Getting to the villa from the airport was easy and Bruno arranged the transfers , unfortunately the taxi drivers didnt have a clue where the villa was situated or even the road it was in and didn't use satnav which was a shame as it delayed our journey there a bit . Bruno and Emilio were very helpful during our stay and even brought in supplies of coal for the amazing BBQ when we needed them . The pool is lovely and heated by the sun every day so not at all cold , its also cleaned daily . The bedrooms are on the lower floor and lead out onto a lovely grassed terrace which is great for sunbathing . They are also cool in the shade with ceiling fans which make sleeping very comfortable . My daughter and her husband stayed with us on our second week using the second bedroom which was decorated mainly for young children which wasn't as grand as the main bedroom but suitable nontheless . All in all a very enjoyable holiday and I'd recommend it for a family to stay in .
Amazing sea views
Amazing sea (and Vesuvius) views and comfortable villa. Would have been helpful to have a document or folder containing useful information i.e nearest supermarket etc (although we had owner's mobile number and he was helpful when asked). Access road to villa very narrow, and location a little further from central Sorrento than implied; a 10-15 minute drive.
A welcome pack would have been nice - dishwasher tablets, soap, toilet roll etc were all in the house, but bread, milk, water etc to get started on our first evening would have been a much appreciated added touch.
