The place is absolutely beautiful. The room is big and perfectly clean. The house is very close from the train station, where you can easily and cheaply move to Sorrento, Positano, Napoli, etc.
Bartolo and Emanuela are very nice and helpful people. Bartolo went to pick me up at the train station when I arrived and he had my breakfast ready every morning when I woke up.
I really recomend you to stay here! =D
Ten points from Germany!!! Besser kann man es in Italien nicht antreffen! Die Gastfreundschaft und Hilfsbereitschaft von Emanuela und Bartholome ist wirklich hervorragend. Jeden Morgen haben wir zusammen gefrühstückt und haben dabei sehr viele Ausflugstipps und Anregungen erhalten. Einen Abend hat uns der Hausherr vorzüglich mit italienischen Spezialitäten bekocht und als meinem Partner eine Erkältung erwischte, gab es morgens Gesundheitstee mit frischen Kräutern. Die Unterkunft liegt ruhig und dennoch zentral. Auf der Dachterrasse kann man den Sonnenuntergang und das Meer genießen. Vielen Dank für die schönen Stunden im Casa Callista! Claudia aus Berlin
La casa de Emanuela y Bartolome es preciosa!! Ellos muy amables y serviciales, simpáticos y atentos. Bello lugar... Lo recomiendo absolutamente!! Ellos me fueron a buscar y a dejar a la estación de tren en su vespa y eso le dió un toque más a mi estadía por ese bello lugar, en donde todos andan en Moto. Tienen que visitarlo!!
L'esperienza a Vico Equense presso il B&B "Il Calicanto" è stata magnifica!!! I nostri ospiti, Emanuela, Bartolo e Jacopo, ci hanno accolti come se fossimo di famiglia!
Ambienti accoglienti e puliti, ospitalità attenta, diponibile e discreta ...ed una vista sul Golfo di Napoli che vale la visita!!!!
Consigliamo caldamente a tutti di soggiornare presso "Il Calicanto" perché è molto più di un b&b: è come CASA!!!!!!

Il Calicanto and Emanuela together with husband Bertolo and son Jacopo gave me the perfect week of hospitality in Vico Equense. They are the warmest, most delightful people, full of ideas and suggestions about where to go and what to see. They took me for beautiful walks to pretty beaches, helped me with my motorbike and introduced be to their friends.
The house is situated above the town and has a panoramic view across the Bay of Naples including the city and Vesuvius. It is a five minute walk to the middle of town or the train and bus station. Slightly longer coming back up the hill! Everything works and Bartolo is a fastidious housekeeper.
Compared to the main tourist destinations, Vico is a quiet, Italian town. There are a few good restaurants and cafes, a nice piazza and plenty of shops and facilities. Everything is a lot more expensive, I noticed, in Sorrento. Naples is 40 minutes on the train (Sorrento 10 minutes) and there are buses to the Amalfi coast.
All I can say in summary is, 'mille grazie' for a fantastic time and your kind hospitality.
What kind hearted, generous people are these hosts! I truly consider rather friends now.
They made me so welcome, I felt incredibly privileged and they welcomed me like family with shared meals and an all day trek with friends of their in Sorrento.
Nothing was too much trouble.
Their home is immaculate... Truly better than most hotels.
They make a massive effort with English and we communicated very well despite the language barriers with my having little Italian either! Much hilarity at times.
There is no wifi but they kindly allowed me to use their laptop but connection is slow. In town a short 5 min walk away is two terrific establishments with free wifi where one can spend many hours with no problems ..just some pots of tea and light snacks made me feel comfortable in using the facility.
The single room downstairs is a little cold but the reverse cycle AC fixes this. The bed and shower is excellent.
Trains are 5 mins walk away and you can get where you want to easily.
I wasn't fond of Vico at first sight but it quickly grew on me and now I like it very much.... very glad I chose to base there instead of Sorrento as the upmarket side of things does not appeal to me so much.
Tis genuine family experience was everything I hoped for and more.
If you choose to stay with Emanuela and her family please be respectful and as kind to them as they will be to you.
Good people through and though! I feel quite protective of them now!
