We loved our stay at Villa Oriana. Waking up to wrap around views of the Bay of Naples with the sunrise edging over Vesuvius is a stunning spectacle in the morning. The large sliding windows fold back to bring the scent of lemons and sound of birds from the orchard outside into your room. An unhurried start to the day consists of a long breakfast in the lounge, where Maria and her sister lay out fresh cakes and tarts each morning (their skills are on par with professional bakers). Their hospitality is incredibly warm and they couldn't have done more to make you feel comfortable as a guest in their home. The location is a 25 minute walk into central Sorrento but being on a hilltop overlooking the town surrounded by lemon trees with views out to sea is fine by me - I'd prefer that over a generic hotel in the main town any day. Qui Sorrento is a short 10 minute walk downhill and was the best restaurant we went to during our 4 day trip. If you want to chill out and enjoy an evening on the terrace, then Franco's pizzeria will deliver to the Villa (this place was recommended by several locals and was excellent). Overall this was a wonderful holiday, perfect as a base to explore Pompeii, Capri, Vesuvius etc. I hope to stay at Villa Oriana again and have no hesitation in recommending it to other travellers.

Maria and her team couldn't have been more welcoming, we had a lovely stay. The villa is a short walk from the center (25 mins) and has the bonus of free parking. The rooms were extremely comfortable and the homemade breakfast spread was delicous making it a home from home. Thanks again!

Maria and her team provide a private house in Sorrento experience. Homemade products to a relaxed beautiful welcome experience with drinks and home made cake. Maddalena gave us an incredible warm welcome and arranged for a massage and food delivery. Spotlessly clean room and comfortable mattress. It’s a firm mattress for those who are side sleepers. Picturesque setting with a lemon and olive orchard as the entrance. Bring a small car. Lastly, Sky Sports for basketball and soccer fans. Perfect stay.

Villa Oriana is a wonderful place to stay. The boutique hotel has only six rooms, and you are treated like royalty from the moment you arrive. Maria and her staff provided the best service I have ever experienced at a hotel, anywhere in the world. As others have already described, the breakfast buffet is a highlight of every day, and looking out over the bay while enjoying this wonderful breakfast is truly paradise. The entire property is impeccably maintained, and its slightly isolated location makes for a very peaceful stay, while still being close enough to the centre of Sorrento. I would caution that anyone with mobility issues (bad knees or hips) may have trouble with all of the stairs (we were on the bottom floor), but as long as you are OK with that then I highly recommend Villa Oriana to everyone. I hope to return one day!

It is hard to add to all these glowing reviews .....they are ALL accurate and still don't describe adequately how lovely and welcoming the Villa is......a bit of paradise and an oasis in the crazy quilt of Sorrento. Once you enter the gate, you feel calm and much needed stillness. Don't get me wrong! We loved Sorrento, and as others said it is the perfect jumping off point for all the must sees in the area. ALL speak of the breakfasts, and yes, indeed, they are special and the BEST but I have to add Maria and staff went out of their way--again and again--each and every day to prepare a delicious, fresh, GLUTEN FREE, cake for me and the other person we were traveling with. They were OUTSTANDING, and they were nice enough to even send us the recipes. The staff couldn't have been nicer, more helpful, and patient with us, our questions and requests. Where to get a COVID test?! They knew and made us an appointment. I would come back in a heart beat, and recommend this place without hesitation. Just be careful driving! It's almost as bad as driving in India! only here the streets are narrower.......WITH CLIFFS!
