Review 5026: Angiolina Apartments, Apartment
1bed/1bath apartment in Sorrento, Campania
May 12-20, 2011, 8 nights
The Relais Villa Angiolina has a lovely B&B which is quite well-known to Slow Travel readers. What is a little less well-known are the two apartments that Angiolina also rents to visitors.
David and I stayed in the beautiful B&B, with the best breakfast in town, the first two nights and then moved to the apartment for the last six nights.
The manager, Liana, calls the smaller of the two apartments a two bedroom, but since the second "bedroom" is a fold-out couch in the living/dining/kitchen area, I would call this a one bedroom. The rooms are quite spacious and every amenity is provided: a full-size refrigerator, dishwasher, and washing machine as well as free WiFi. Rooms are nicely furnished with a modern feel.
The bedroom is lovely with a true, king-sized comfortable bed, beautiful linens, and its own TV (another TV is in the living area) as well as a desk. Perhaps the best things about the apartment are the spacious balconies -- one off the bedroom and living areas and another with table and chairs off the kitchen -- with views of the town, the sea and the mountains.
The apartment is on the fourth floor (fifth in US) with an elevator and is well-situated for shopping and access to the main tourist area, Tasso Square. It is also an easy walk to the train/bus station from the apartment. Get your mainstay groceries from the market on Corso Italia, but for inexpensive culinary delights, do not miss carry-out next door from Bar-Rita bakery at 219 Corso Italia just a block or two from the main square. They undoubtedly have the best food in town and I'd give anything right now for a piece of pizza rustica followed by a cannoli!
Liana is a delight to work with, gives lots of information and advice, and will arrange a taxi for you upon request. We paid €100 a night and considered this apartment a great bargain. We'd love to stay there again!
