It is located in Piano di Sorrento, which is halfway between Positano and Sorrento and about 6 km (approximately 3.8 miles) away from both towns.
From the main road that connect Sorrento to Positano, you will reach the villa trough a private road of 500 meters. On this private road, outside the villa, you can leave your car. From the private road you enter into the villa area trough a stair of 20 steps and you reach the terrace where is situated the pool from where you have a nice view of the coast.

The apartment in Villa del Pino is composed of 2/4/6 bedrooms and they are furnished and equipped (a cooking area, satellite TV, safe etc.). The apartment is cleaned up before Your arrival and after Your leaving.
The cost includes a parking space, the use of the swimming pool in the period between the half of May and the end of September (only for clients and not for their possible guests), Internet connection, welcome endowment of consumer things (such as soaps, toilet paper etc.), taxes (VAT), possible commision to intermediaries and the standard consumption of energy of 20 kwh per apartment per week (above this level there would be an injustified waste of energy).
The cost doesn’t include the tourism tax (from the 1st of April to the 31st October 2012, in Sorrento and Piano di Sorrento, a Tourism Tax for guests to be poured to the Communes will be introduced and applied to non-residents overnight staying, for a maximum of 7 consecutive nights. The tourism tax rate is € 1,00, per person per night, and it is not applied to children up to 18 years old), consumer things such as soaps, detergents, toilet paper etc. except for welcome endowment.

Stefano's property is perfectly located for a trip to the Amalfi Coast, being situated on the hilltop and far enough off the main road between Sorrento and Positano to be quiet and idyllic, yet easily accessible. It has a good sea view, WIFI available, a small pool for cooling down during the summer months (usage of which does have time restrictions) and there is a small general store only a five minute walk away. We hired a car for the entirety of our trip and felt it was justified to get the best possible use out of this properties location; parking in the Amalfi Coast and Sorrento area is not cheap, but seems readily available outside of peak season.
The property is split into 3 separate units (2 units on the ground floor and 1 unit on the 1st floor) although we hired the bottom 2 units together to accommodate our party of 4 adults and a baby. Whilst our stay was reasonably comfortable and without any drama we would urge you to rent the 1st floor unit over the ground floor if it is available. The layout of the lower units means that some of the rooms are without windows and are reasonably dark and it was also possible to hear the people in the apartment above walking around, although this was not overbearing.
A few pointers: the beds are quite hard, so be prepared if you like a soft bed (like my partner) and the water pressure in the showers is not fantastic.
Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Stefano, but we were welcomed by the the House Guard (essentially the Property Manager) who gave us the low down on the house rules. His English was not fantastic, but he was a nice man and we were lucky to have an Italian in our party who could translate for us. There are complicated instructions about the disposal of garbage (a local council requirement) which were a little confusing and not well documented in English.
Overall we were very happy with our stay in Stefano's property and would definitely recommend it as an excellent place to stay when visiting the Amalfi Coast / Sorrento. If we return to the area, we'll be booking the 1st floor property and hope to get to meet Stefano himself!
Stefano is really a nice guy. He did his best to make our stay there very pleasant.
the Villa is located in a beautiful spot overlooking the Amlfian coast. few minutes from Sorento and near several good local restaurants.
It is very well maintained , very clean and homey.
I strongly Recommend .
