Glorious Casa Sofia
Wow what a wonderful villa. Well equipped, very well maintained and great amenities. I stayed here with my wife for our anniversary. Upon booking Louisa was very helpful telling us about the villa and surrounding areas. She kept in touch making sure we had everything for our stay. When we arrived there was a bottle of champagne (we had mentioned it was our anniversay). This was a welcome surpise.
The villa itself is well equipped and has everything you would want. There was even a hair dryer available to use. My wife was very happy about this! the villa is in a lovely area of campania. Close enough for day trips to Naples, Sorrento and Amalfi Coast. Faicchio is a lovely little village and the castle is wonderful to explore. there is a restaurant near Casa Sofia which does fantastic pizzas and the views of the village and mountains are just breath taking. its cheap too with good wine at 2 euros a bottle! We drank a few of them!
the outside of Casa Sofia is just wonderful. We found the wild rocket and went looking for asparagus. The fruit trees are lovely and the gardens provided a lovely area to relax. It is private and quite. The furniture was comfortable and Louisa even thought about guests sitting outside at night, with candles and lighting.
All in all a lovely villa, accomodating owner, great to explore the surrounding areas. We will definitely be visiting again. We have already recommended it to family and friends.
