We are experienced, easy-going travelers. We have rented over 20 VRBO properties. This was our least favorite. The property is managed by a British company who was not clear on the directions and short/snotty when asked to clarify. The owners are VERY nice people who do not speak any English, so the issues with the management company added to the frustration. The property was located significantly further away from anything in town and located on a one lane road which resulted in near collisions daily (do not attempt to drive anything larger than the smallest rental available). The property had close to 7 feral cats living adjacent to the bedrooms, which we were warned not to go near due to the risk of contracting a disease (clearly stated in the house rules book). Again, the property owners were very sweet, but ALWAYS present. I would recommend this property only if you were looking for a rustic experience with nice views.
Villa Incanto holiday Aug 2018
The villa was comfortable and this is a good base for exploring the peninsula and for visiting Pompeii, Vesuvius, Herculaneum, etc. Sant Agata has good shops, fuel and restaurants.
The owners live in the apartment above the villa and work in and around the villa garden to keep it tidy and to tend vegetables and chickens. Fresh eggs, lemons and tomatoes appear regularly which is nice. They speak virtually no English so practice a little before the stay.
The approach road to the villa is tricky, it is overgrown and narrow even for a small car.
The villa is a little tired in places but is comfortable with all necessary facilities. The garden and pool are great. Young children would need supervision at all times. Mosquitos are a problem all around this area.
There are beautiful places to visit on the Amalfi coastline and Sorrento is also lovely.
Driving can be challenging, traffic is slow around Sorrento and along the coast road and parking is difficult and expensive everywhere.
Many places can be reached more easily by train or boat and the Sita bus service is good and cheap (but you must buy tickets from local shops in advance).
Une vue imprenable - une maison au calme au coeur de la péninsule de Sorrente - vacances de rêve
La vue sur la méditérrannée qui borde la côte amalfitaine est exceptionnelle !
La maison est parfaite pour une famille de 5 (voire plus) et très bien située (à l'écart du village de Santa Agata, mais facilement accessible, on trouve tout ce qu'on veut au village). Les propriétaires sont charmants, présents de temps à autre pour s'occuper du jardin (oliviers, tomates,...).
Quelques balades et criques sympatiques pas loin.
Bref, nous y avons passé une semaine magnifique et pensons revenir dans le coin.
I was happy to know from my colleagues that you have enjoyed your stay thank you for your feedback which will help orientate our future guests and I hope to welcome you hbac to Villa Incanto again soon !
After the bustle and noise of the tourist centers along this coast, the position of Villa Incanto is very quiet and peaceful.
It is 3 kilometers from the little town of S. Agata where you can find restaurants, banks, chemist’s, shops, and other amenities.
The Sita bus stop is about 800 m away (Bus to Sorrento - S.Agata - Nerano).
Not to miss is a visit to the old fishing village of Nerano, Marina Del Cantone, that has become a pleasant beach resort.
The larger, and well-known town of Sorrento is about 10 Km. from the Villa, and from here there are ferry boats and hydrofoils to Naples, Capri, Ischia, Amalfi and Positano, as well as go on mini-cruises.
The nearest railway station (Circumvesuviana line to Pompeii, Naples) is also in Sorrento.
The nearest beach is the pebble beach of Marina del Cantone (7 Km.), below the village of Nerano. The Amalfi Coast / Positano is about 14 Km. away from Villa Incanto. The distance to Naples is 60 Km.
A car is recommended and necessary if you are staying in this villa.
How to get there
The easy way to get to Villa Incanto from Naples/Rome Airport or Naples Train station is to rent a car.
