Isabel B wrote a review Sep 2017
London, United Kingdom3 contributions
When I saw the photographs, I immediately fell in love with this idyllic place. I stayed for 4 days recently and had a beautifully appointed room, in fact, a suite with my own shower/bathroom and even my own kitchen with a table to sit, all very clean and excellent value for money. Every morning, I enjoyed breakfast outside in the garden, lovingly served by the very friendly owner Signor Antonio who was always very attentive and available, and he even very kindly provided me with a bicycle to use. The house is about 2 km from the centre of the picturesque resort of Palinuro, within close walking distance of the Arco Naturale beach and easy walking distance to the beautiful beach of La Marinella with its pleasant beach bars, and from where you can also go on boat trips. A very lovely B&B which makes a good base for exploring the Cilento coast. Ideally you will have your own car, but I arrived by train and bus, and Sgr. Antonio was even so kind to pick me up from the nearest bus stop and drop me off again on my departure; there are local buses to Pisciotta and to the picturesque neighbouring resort of Marina di Camerota from where I also went on a wonderful boat trip along the coast. I had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay in this beautiful place. Isabel Brenner (London)

Response from Rosaria C, Responsabile relazioni pubbliche at B&B Il Vecchio Gelso
Responded 16 Sep 2017
Gentile Sig.ra Isabel, davvero grazie per il suo bel giudizio dedicato alla nostra struttura, che abbiamo apprezzato tantissimo. Siamo felici che si sia trovata bene nel nostro B&B, che rimane per carità, una semplice casa di campagna, ma che può rappresentare una buona soluzione per chi è alla ricerca di un luogo tranquillo e senza troppo pretese, lontano dal traffico ma nel contempo molto vicino alle varie spiagge di Palinuro e a numerose località da visitare. Nella speranza che voglia ritornare qualche altra volta da noi, la salutiamo cordialmente.
