"Little paradise" Naples
Country side in the middle of the city!
Few minute from the city historical center. The Paradisiello (literally, little paradise) is a huge garden with a lot of trees and plants. In the middle of it there's a nice little house, with kitchen, bathroom and internet wifi. Is a perfect place for a relaxing vacation in the nature but at the same time you have the possibility of visiting one of the most beautiful italian cities. The apartment is suitable to accommodate 3 people, consists of a kitchen (with cooker,sink, kitchen mixer, coffee maker,and refrigerator);dining room with a large table and chairs. In this room there is also a wood stove perfect to warm the coldest days.The bedroom is cozy and colorful(books and pictures on the wall).Outside there is a large garden with flowers and trees,you will feel surrounded by nature,although the city is close.Nearby there are shops bars and restaurants,public transport and places of tourist interest.There are no pets in the apartment.
i loved it, my girlfriend who has somewhat less bohemian spirit was a little less excited, but i definitely recommend it for nature loving off the grid types. if you pull a suitcase on wheels, you might not like it, especially the long walk up the stairs. but if you carry your belongings in a backpack, dont mind the hike to the top, you are rewarded with a killer view and a peaceful spot in a not so zen city.
Hélas! ce petit paradis s'est avéré être un enfer!
Pour commencer, notre hôtesse n'était pas présente à notre arrivée, malgré notre annonce d'arrivée! c'est une autre locataire qui nous a accueilli (très bien d'ailleurs).
Ensuite, le logement s'est avéré inconfortable : lavabo bouché, ampoule qui éclate quand on allume, prise électrique défaillante.
Le jardin avait l'air sympa, mais s'est révélé foutoir et (website hidden) parlons pas du quartier: nous avions l'impression de nous retrouver dans les favela de Rio : on n'accède au logement à pied exclusivement par une rue en escalier et en haut d'une côte (10mn ). imaginez le calvaire avec des sacs et des valises. Le quartier n'est pas secure, les napolitains vous regardent avec des airs bizarres, planquez les bijoux et les appareils photos!. impossible de se garer, et si l'on y arrive gare aux bosses sur la carrosserie!
bref, désolé, Celesta, je ne recommanderais pas votre Little Paradise à quiconque.
Nous nous sommes rabattu sur un hôtel classique en ville, correspondant mieux à notre attente.
Vico Paradisello means little little paradise and that is certainly what this place is - high up in the hills over Napoli with panoramic views. It was a very romantic and memorable place to spend the first few days of our honeymoon in. Celeste's mother only speaks Italian, but we speak it too - she greeted us like long lost friends when our flight was late. She made sure we had food to cook for our dinner and a delicious breakfast - all from fresh food from her garden.I loved cooking there.The orange garden outside is a great treat too and was one our favourite things about Napoli. It was very romantic indeed - the kind of place that could easily take 4 or where you'd want to throw a party as it's pretty big.
This is the quirkiest place ever! We loved staying here! It is an artists house with beautiful surrounding gardens. We stayed here for the last night of our honeymoon as we needed somewhere in Naples because we were flying out of there the next day. It was such an amazing way to end our holiday because it is an inspiring house. If we go back to naples, we definitely want to stay here!
Super fantastic apartment! We have enjoy. Very nice garden, very good home.
This is a lovely, unusual and folklorist place in the hearth of Naples, its the ideal please for artists, friends, a couple and countryside lovers.
If you look for something different (and pleasant!) Little Paradise is the place for your stay in Naples. The house was bigger than expected, furnishing and especially the decoration are very special and if you are not afraid of an incidental cobweb you will feel home immediately. That's also the feeling Celesta gives you on arrival. She gave us useful information - although we were not very positive about the recommended pizzeria - and presented us 'nespole' or loquat, a tasty kind of fruit unknown to us. And even when she is not around she can be contacted easily by phone or e-mail. In the middle of the night she arranged a taxi for us for the following morning. The quiet garden and the free Wifi are plusses for a pleasant stay.

Celesta's casita is a unique bohemian retreat in a lovely garden atop a hellacious hill! The climb is not for the faint of heart but offers great views and wonderful visits with Celesta. Celesta is warm, outgoing, and a great hostess.
Celesta was so helpful, and we fell in love with her home. She lives above Napoli in a truly blissful garden. We made fresh lemonade from her lemon trees, and played cards in the garden. Celesta called us a cab to the airport the morning we left, and told us all the good places to go. I didn't want to leave ;] It was absolutely stunning. Thank you so much, Celesta!
Celesta gave us a very warm welcome and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay in little paradise. Having access to the garden and being able to pick fresh oranges and lemons from the trees was wonderful - it felt like being in the countryside just outside the centre of Naples! We would definitely recommend staying here again, especially in spring and summer.
