Villa Terrazza
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 August 2016

Utterly breath-taking is the only way you can describe your arrival on the terrace several hundred feet above Sorrento Port, looking out over the Bay of Naples towards Mount Vesuvius on the other side, and at night with all the lights of Naples to view. We stayed a week there after an earlier 3 days in sweltering Rome. We drove down along the packed and winding coast road, and, typical of the service of La Terrazza's owner, Andrea, and his staff, just as we arrived in Sorrento we received a mobile phone call from receptionist Valentina to give us final directions to the centre of the town and the villa. Sorrento is a buzzing place in July, but the directions led us smoothly to our destination. Electric gates at the entrance give good privacy and security from the holiday throng only yards away in Piazza Tasso, and you can relax on the massive terrace with its swimming pool and magnificent views. We had the ground floor apartment, one of 5 apartments of varying size built into this 19th century building of great elegance. The bedroom particularly is air conditioned and the only downside is some noise from the cobbled road outside leading down to the port, sometimes further increased by live entertainment from the restaurant opposite. But overall our apartment was very good, except it does need an English television news service for UK and US clients. Broadcasts in Italian do not quite keep you up to speed with the world at large! Also, equipment like adequate coffee mugs and a toaster would help. But these are mini moans when set against the views and the potential for sunning yourself, swimming, and enjoying the many excellent restaurants close at hand - or watching the magnificent sunset from the terrace. It must be one of the best spots for it on the Amalfi Coast. Then of course there is Andrea and his great boat trips to Capri or other local islands and landmarks, together with his humorous commentary. We had some great days, touring from here to Pompeii and to hilly Positano, hanging precariously on the hillside above the sea. A splendid week at what must be a true jewel on the glorious Amalfi Coast. Well worth re-visiting.

Room Tip: Go for one of the upper floors with balconies and probably less noise from the port and nearby resta...

We stayed for 6 nights in this charming villa in the Paradise suite .it is like being in an old Italian movie , you can just imagine families gathering there in the past . We visited a couple of the top hotels while we were there but the informality and freedom of our own villa was preferred . Some days we had the terrace and pool to ourselves. The view is fabulous ,the location perfect , only minutes walk to restaurants and marina to take trips around the coast . Valentina and Andrea were excellent hosts , helpful but not obtrusive . Andreas boat trip was a fun day out , would recommend . We will definitely return to this beautiful place and will absolutely stay at villa terrazza.

Amazing views! Great hospitality and the staff were friendly and fun to be around.

The beach is right below. Centro was 2 min walk and it is very close to restaurants, bars, pizzerias and shopping districts. The main sea port is also right below the cliff.

Highly recommend to stay here for couples and family vacations.

We spent 5 days in the villa and had a great stay. Very private and very secure. located on a cliff right above sorrento marina. The owner Andrea is a very special character, Funny, high energy and good person. Valentina is very helpful and can help you with daily tours and any activity you may want to book

We have been coming to Villa la Terrazza every year for about 10 years with many friends from around the world-all sophisticated travelers. The overwhelming beauty of the villa and it's location on the Bay of Naples pulls us back, year after year. One can go to fancy hotels in Sorrento, but you can't find the privacy, freedom, space-and constant spectacular beauty-that the villa provides.
