There are not enough words to describe our stay in Marina del Cantone. I will start with amazing breathtaking and unreal! First of all Raffaele couldn't of been a more gracious host. Easy to contact to answer any questions we may have. He was there as soon as we arrived to help us settle in. He even organized a few people to help us carry our bags over to the villa. We parked the car for the week in a convenient lot located right in the village which is a 2 minute walk.

The villa itself was magnificent!! We are a family of 7 and there was more the enough room. The villa was amazing from the inside out. Inside was beautifully decorated from original floor tiles and feel of the 1930's villa to the modern comforts of home. A well stocked kitchen comfortable bedding and plenty of towels!

The outside you felt like you were in a movie! The most stunning views of the of the lovely village of Marina Del Cantone. We would wake up with the sound of the sea splashing on the rocks right from our windows.

While there we took a boat over to Capri. The boat leaves literally everyday from the dock you can see from the Villa. They also offer boat service right to Positano and Amalfi which is a must see! Right behind the villa is a short most magnificent hike to Recommone also a must see! The rocky majestic beach of Marina Del Cantone has a handful of hotels and restaurants with delicious food. All made with local fresh ingredients. There is also a store in the village with everything from suntan lotion to fresh bread!

All and all the most amazing trip to Italy! It was truly like a dream come true. If you have the chance to visit this spectacular place you wont soon forget it!

Pictures Don't Do It Justice

If you are debating staying at Rafaelle's home on the coast, do yourself a favor and just book it. We were in Italy for two weeks and the time we spent at Marina Del Cantone was the most memorable. The Marina itself has wonderful restaurants and atmosphere; the location of the house is perfect. Rafaelle was a great host and works nearby- if we needed anything he was available for help. There is private access to the sea and a great place to swim.

I do have some tips for those interested:

-If you plan on making trips around the area, make sure you rent a car. As an American, the roads were a little tight to navigate, but definitely doable.

-There is not a grocery store in the Marina, so I would recommend stocking up on food if you are staying for an extended time.

-The Marina will be your home base, any nearby towns aren't very walk-able because of the tight roads and elevation gains.

-Best restaurants in the area: Quattro Passi (very expensive but amazing dining experience- long walk, they have a shuttle) & Conca del Sogno (there is trail right behind the house that goes east along the coast to the next bay where the restaurant is located, 20 minute hike/walk, they also offer to pick you up by boat in the Marina).

-I would also recommend doing a day trip by boat to Capri. Its only about a 45 minute boat ride and it is a lot of fun to walk around and shop on. Can be very busy, but worth the trip.

WOW!!! What a beautiful villa in an equally beautiful location!!! We booked this property based on the description & the wonderful reviews all of which are spot on! We (2 couples) spent a week here & it was fabulous! The villa is very clean, spacious and nicely decorated. We especially loved having our morning coffee and evening wine & cheese on the terrace - the views are breathtaking. We took some day trips (including a private boat tour to Capri, a drive to Positano, a hike on the Path of the Gods beginning in Nocelle) and it was always so nice to return to the quietness and charm of Marina del Cantone/Nerano. Other days, we chose to stay close to “home.” There are many good restaurants just a walk away. Termini is a small town just a 10 minute drive from the villa where you'll find Mira Capri (a restaurant with delicious food and a gorgeous view of Capri - go to watch the sunset). Be sure to walk the path behind the villa to the Bay of Recommone...the views are stunning. And thank you, Raffaele, for being a fantastic host! You were always gracious, easy to contact and very helpful both leading up to our trip and during our visit.
