"A perfect and peaceful place for Sorrento peninsula and classical sites around Vesuvius"
My wife and I spent 10 nights at Villa Oriana Relais. Where to start' It is located away from the hustle and bustle of Sorrento, but only a 15 minute walk from the railway and bus station. It is ideally located to explore the peninsula, the islands and all the historic sites around Vesuvius (not forgetting the archeological museum in Naples). Set in a lemon and olive grove, part of the old family farm, it is quiet, peaceful and comfortable. Run by Maria whose passion for the lemons and olive oil show up, not just in her superb cooking but also in her connection to the land. The best breakfasts ever are served on a balcony looking out over the Bay of Naples with views of Vesuvius above the trees and the bay. Maria cooks savoury tarts / quiches and a selection of cakes she bakes every morning with different recipes every day. They are most memorable. The villa is spotlessly clean, but the reason I will never forget the villa is the warmth of the staff. We were made most welcome at all times and they couldn't have been more helpful with our touring in the area and the recommendation of Sorrento restaurants. Maria showed us around the garden with the new flowers on the lemon trees for the spring crop with a knowledge and love that was palpable. I am sure we will return.
"A Sorrento Gem!"
After much research and discussion with Italian colleagues, it was clear that if we wanted a quiet stay in Sorrento, we needed to leave the downtown area. Villa Oriana Relais was exactly what we wanted.....perched above Sorrento with views of the Bay of Naples, Capri, and other landmarks. After carefully traveling up a winding side street off the primary drag, you will see the Villa's entrance with its narrow driveway lined with lemon and lime trees leading to the house. After parking near the front door, we were met by one of the Villa's staff who assisted with our luggage. Our check-in was simple since we had booked and paid on line before departing the States. Our room with balcony was big and comfortable. We opted for a large antique iron bed (queen I think) which was very cozy.The bathroom was spacious with tub/separate shower and adequate counter area for toiletries. There was a safe mounted in the closet for securing valuables and a small refrigerator to chill beverages, fruit, etc. The real highlight of each day was breakfast which is included with your room fare. Maria, the owner and chief baker, does a masterful job preparing every morning fresh cakes, fruit tortes, and other special dishes. Yogurts, fruits, cold cuts, cheeses, sliced tomatoes, rolls, oatmeal, cold cereals, juices, and hot coffee/tea round out a more European buffet approach to breakfast. Dining on the terrace is a "must" when the weather cooperates. If you are looking for scrambled eggs and bacon with a short stack of pancakes, you will need to return home for a visit to Denney's! Villa Oriana Relais isn't for everyone especially if you are looking for a vibrant bar scene, rocking music, and late hour dining. But it you want time away from the crowds, a warm and inviting environment; tasty breakfasts; comfortable accommodations; and a knowledgeable staff (Lisa, Marika, Melana) that really cares about making your stay special, Villa Oriana Relais is definitely worth checking out.
"My favorite hotel in Italy! (So far)"
We stayed at the Villa for three nights over my birthday in early October. I loved everything about this place! The staff is friendly and welcoming, the room and balcony were spacious, the breakfast delicious and the views were amazing! The ladies knew it was my birthday, so they made me a cake and brought it to me at breakfast, complete with singing and a candle! I was blown away. I loved the fresh baked goods at breakfast each morning and also getting to enjoy our meal on the terrace with beautiful views of the Bay of Naples. We loved our room, too, and were surprised to find a nice walk-in closet area. It was nice to have a space for our clothes and bags that was out of the way. The bathroom is probably the largest one I’ve had in all of my stays in Italy. I just can’t say enough great things about this place. Lovely villa and even more lovely people. One thing to note: if you are arriving by ferry or the circumvesuviana, it would probably be best to take a taxi to the villa, as it is a lonnnnngggg hike up the hill. We chose to walked from the ferry and I thought I might die.
"Relax and enjoy!"
Sorrento, beautiful treasure, but overcrowded and busy. For those who are looking for a quiet, relaxing stay with a magnificent view VILLA ORIANA RELAIS is an ideal answer. The warm welcome, the friendly hospitality, the helpful staff and the extraordinary, dailyfresh, tasteful, delicious breakfast make it an enjoyable place to stay. Our room was a roomy, large, clean suite with view over the Vesuvius and the gardens. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
"Fantastic week spent at Villa Oriana Relais. Great views, location, wonderful staff and amazing food"
We had a lovely spacious apartment with a beautiful terrace. Breakfast every day was in the main hotel and was just incredible - amazing array of homemade treats. Breakfast on the terrace with a view of the sea and Vesuvius - Jacuzzi with the same view. The staff were fantastic and we were made to feel so welcome. The grounds of the hotel are also lovely and a nice escape from the scooters and bustle of the main roads.
