Surrounded by beautiful Sorrento Peninsula in a place secluded from the hustle and 10 minutes from the city center, my Villa has two guest rooms on one floor with a separate entrance from the rest of the house.

The Space

A Piano di Sorrento, in the heart of the Sorrento Peninsula, collected from the Gulf of Naples and the Gulf of Salerno, lies our bed and breakfast : "Il pozzo e il mare", a quiet bed and breakfast, housed in a converted eighteenth century villa, where you will find hospitality and cordiality. Piano di Sorrento is a natural terrace overlooking the sea offering a wide panorama from Vesuvius to Sorrento, passing, on a clear day, the islands of the Gulf. In an area rich in historical and natural resources, a few steps from the fishing village Marina di Cassano, conveniently located offers everything that can make unforgettable your holiday or weekend in Amalfi:  - Within walking distance of the beaches of Marina di Cassano; - In the immediate vicinity you will also find bars, restaurants, shops, supermarket and much more ...! - Piano di Sorrento is well served by public transport, by sea or land, to spend your days in the most renowned of the Sorrento-Amalfi Coast: Capri, Sorrento, Positano, Ravello, Amalfi and Naples and the ancient Pompeii and Herculaneum; - If you love nature, from the sea to the mountains, you will find many services for excursions by boat or mountain, even for the more adventurous trekkers! After a day in the courtyard enclosed by thick walls of the villa, you can fully enjoy your relaxation, including air and brisk citrus scents, in an atmosphere of yesteryear.

Guest Access

Guests will have access to the common courtyard and the garden of the villa.

Interaction with Guests

The fastest way to interact is definitely in person since I live in the villa, but my guests can communicate with me by phone, email, (website hidden), wathsapp or even via the dedicated app "Il pozzo e il mare" bed and breakfast.

The Neighborhood

The district Cassano is quiet, surrounded by greenery and close to the city center.

Getting around

The neighborhood is well served by buses, the train station is 10 minutes away and the elevator municipal beach is 5 minutes away!

Other Things to Note

Around the villa (less than 5 minutes), there are several bars, restaurants, two supermarkets, a large car park and all that it can be useful!

  • Mario was a very attentive host and my stay at his B&B was fantastic. I'm glad I didn't stay in Sorrento. Piano is really tranquil and has a less crowded beach. The people were lovely, my room was great, and I would definitely recommend his place!

  • I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Mario's B and B. He was super accommodating and even picked me up from the train station. His courtyard was very cute and the room was really spacious (which I appreciate after having such small rooms or shared space in all or the places I had been before. This is in piano di sorrento which is two towns over (I stayed here to be close to cooking school, but it's a long walk to sorrento heads up). That being said if you want to stay here, it is 100 percent worth it

  • Il B&B di Mario si presenta molto bene, corrisponde al vero delle foto.
    Mario ci ha aiutato a trasportare sia all'andata che al ritorno le valigie (non poche) dal parcheggio della macchina al suo B&B e ci ha aspettato fino a tardi (le 11 pm) per il check-in.
    Posto pulito, ordinato e molto silenzioso.
    Colazione nella norma.

  • Mario made us feel very welcome, my girlfriend and I stayed for a week visiting local sites with a 15 minute walk to the local train. Mario supplied a basic breakfast and responded to our needs promptly. Our stay felt like a home away from home, there was a small supermarket close by with a great delicatessen. We would definitely recommend staying at Il Posso.
    Piano Dr Sorrento is a quiet village with its own restaurants and interesting sites.

  • The house itself is very nice, but keep in mind that the location is a bit far from the train station with heavy backpacks/luggage (and tight roadways of Piano di Sorrento can be a bit treacherous with the scooter traffic).
    Since there are so many 'full day' trips around Sorrento, we got an early start on most of our 4 days there. Dont expect Mario to offer you breakfast in this case (even after he promised it would be 'no problem' one day to do so).
    I would also bring your own toilet paper and towels, as those can be hard to come by as well at this B&B.

    Overall, our stay was quite disappointing - but the sites and food we experienced in the area were just wonderful - and the local butcher/grocery store (where we had to purchase our own breakfast) was lovely

    Response from Mario:

    Hi Neil,
    I'm sorry that you missed breakfast,I could not wake up to prepare breakfast by 6:30 .... my fault! ;)
    But I hope you all had a good stay at my house and you can get back to you soon!

  • Simply great! I loved staying at Mario's place. He is the nicest guy, very helpful...the place itself is nice and clean, modern (has AC!), fridge in the rooms and it is in a fantastic location. It is close to the beach, stores, restaurants ...only few minutes on a train and you are in the busy Sorrento. By the way, so much better than staying in Sorrento! I strongly recommend staying here.....I had the best time!! :)
    Thanks Mario! :)

  • Piano di Sorrento is a lovely little town. The B&B is in a VERY quiet part of town - make sure to ask/print a detailed map before you arrive otherwise you will have a bit of a hard time finding the place. If you want something more lively, this is not the place for you. About 20 minute walk to the train station and bit further for a bus. Sorrento 2 stops away on train.

    Mario has two rooms available for guests, nice and big. Nice large shared bathroom. Each room has a bar fridge and aircon as well as fan. There is a kettle, but no coffee or tea.

    There is a narrow street beneath the window, so no cars, but PLENTY of scooters. SO if you are a light sleeper, you wont be able to leave the windows open and will need earplugs as well.

    Breakfast includes juice, cereal, fruit and some pastries, but no coffee.

    Mario works, so is unavailable most of the time, but is happy for you to call him if you need assistance. Wi-fi signal was not super strong, but worked well on and off.

    He has a lovely cat and small dog, but they are no bother and do not come into the rooms. Very friendly guy and he has some maps of the area for you.

  • Mario was a fantastic host, welcoming and always on hand to help with any of our questions. Sorrento is such an amazing place, the place was perfectly located. The room itself was very large, cosy, functional and nicely decorated. Exactly what we wanted, a perfect place to retreat after a full day of activity. Thank you so much for having Reuben and I there, we will definitely come again and recommend you to others.

  • Room was clean and well equipped. Location 5 minutes from Sorrento by train. Marco is very professional host and discrete- we had misunderstanding that was handled very proffessionally and undesrtanding attitude. Breakfast was also great. I can warmly recommend Mario as a host.

  • HIGHLY RECOMMEND. FIVE STARS. mario is awesome. of hosts i've had, mario one of the kindest, flexible understanding (even when i missed the last SITA bus back from positano, got stuck there, and thus missed my supposed 8am checkout the next day) . my time is sorrento was so terrific i kept wanting to extend my stay and mario kept saying "no problem". he brought up the most AMAZING breakfast selections every day. WAY better than any typical continental i have ever seen. the home is mediterranean style, lovely and the rooms are situated above the house so you have MAJOR privacy--granted the next room over was vacant, but it was super quiet nonetheless. cathedral ceilings, lovely balconade windows with double shutters (for sleeping in if you like), sea view from right outside the room, beautiful tile floors and a super cute tile bathroom (only thing is if there were several people you might run out of hot water unless it was turned down for the winter). ample heating and ac in the room. overall very spacious and comfortable. 15 minute walk slight downhill (though mario graciously offered to retrieve me) from the piano train station (circumvesuviana) and local (EAV) bus stops very near by. ONLY 5 MINUTE WALK to the seacliff. 2 towns over and 5 minute train ride from sorrento so you miss all the of the tourist trap congestion. SITA bus in centro to get to the amalfi coast and even solerno if you want to do the long tour versus the ferry or hydroboat. i would totally stay here again, i recommend for you to book and enjoy...
