I would strongly recommend Magnolia House. It was beautifully clean and well maintained and the kitchen was fully equipped. The garden was exquisite and we had a beautiful private patio. It is within walking distance of public transportation and close to many places of interest. I cannot say enough about Lucia and Franco. They answered all of our questions and had many suggestions regarding what we might see and do. Also, when Lucia found that we had not been able to buy basic food supplies because we did not realize that the supermarkets were closed on a Sunday - she graciously provided us with all that we needed.

Nous sommes restés 4 jours chez Lucia and Francesco à la maison Magnolia en juillet 2013. Nous étions toute la petite famille: 2 ados de 15 ans, un tout petit de 9 ans ainsi que les grands-parents. Nous avons été très bien acceuilli par Daniela. Lucia fût très acceuillante également. Quelle belle surprise ! De belles fleurs, de l'eau fraîche et du Limoncello nous attendait. C'est un endroit très spacieux, même pour 7 personnes. La terrasse est incroyable!! Il était bon de revenir le soir à la maison et de se faire une bonne bouffe et de profiter de ce petit coin de paradis. Également, un point très important, c'est un endroit très central: bus, épicerie, restaurant se font tous à pieds. Merci Lucia et Francesco pour ce merveilleux séjour !

Magnolia house was a greatest travel experience for us.

  • 5 of 5

We (4 adults) were on vacation and truly felt like being at home at Magnolia House with Lucia as a host .

Such different experience after busy Rome.

Everything as described and more: greetings with homemade Lemoncello, homemade pastry , exceptionally clean, tastefully decorated apartment .

We had a car and did little bit of traveling.

Magnolia House with her life village atmosphere, garden area was a perfect place after exhausting days in Sorrento , Capri or Amalfi coast.

Communication with Lucia (emails/phone from Canada) was very easy and quick.

We will recommend this place to our friends and hope to return to Magnolia House one day.

Thank You Magnolia House !

Thank You Lucia !

Never having rented through VBRO Lucia was in constant contact with me, easing my nerves about renting a property so very far away.

Sant' Agata was the last leg of our first holiday in Italy. Lucia and her family welcomed us with homemade Lemoncello and homemade pastry. They guided us to the best restaurants, made sure were were comfortable, they treated us like family.

The house was beautiful and very comfortable. The town of Sant' Agata is very quaint, and convenient to public transportation and the local market. It is also the hub of some of the best restaurants in Sorrento. We were extremely sad to leave the Magnolia house, we felt very much felt at home. We miss them and hope to return someday!

Fino a quel giorno, ci invia il nostro amore e gratitudine...

Like being at home

  • 4 of 5

We (2 adults) had a great stay. The garden area is a quiet and relaxing place after a day visiting this incredible part of Italy. Host were very helpful and discrete.

Location is great for people visiting the amalfie cost. Minutes away from ferry to Capri. Not central location but very convenient for people (like us) who wants peace and life in a small village away from the tourism center.

House is very clean, well equipped and perfect for 2 couples. Big table outside for long dinner. Grocery at walking distance. Nice restaurant also from walking distance.

We recommend this place and would return

thanks Lucia
