Wonderful B&B in Sorrento.

The Villa Adriana Guesthouse in Sorrento is a piece of heaven in a heavenly part of Italy. The family home of Valerio Esposito is magnificient. The rooms are spectacular and the service is supurb.

Andrea Hughes, Valerio's Australian counterpart, is the perfect hostess whose hospitality knows no bounds. She makes you feel like a treasured friend who has come for a visit. Valerio is the perfect host, yet treats his guests in a manner that is welcoming and friendly, not stuffy or pretentious. Both Andrea and Valerio pull out all of the stops to make sure that their guests happy and contented.

I stayed in the Queen Terrace Suite 1 which boasts a huge bathroom, a large and lovely bedroom and best of all a terrace overlooking Sorrento and the Bay of Naples. The terrace has two large lounge chairs that were just perfect for a evening glass of wine.

My friends stayed in the Junior Suite with two bedrooms, one large bathroom and a balcony. This was perfect for a couple and their adult daughter. They said that the room lacked for nothing.

A continental breakfast awaited us each morning with an endless supply of coffee in any way that you could imagine. Valerio is known for his cappuccino and his hot chocolate which he serves in the breakfast sunroom or the terrace by the pool.

This wonderful B&B offers a cooking class for their guests and others. Unfortunately we were not able to take part in the making of gnocchi while we were there. The lessons sound like so much fun. The Villa Adriana Guesthouse is within walking distance of most everything in Sorrento. We walked down to the Marina, to the town square, the shopping areas, to restaurants and the train/bus station.

There was nothing that I did not like about Villa Adriana. Well perhaps, just one thing ... I hated to leave.
