When I called Bartollo while arriving at the train station of Vico Equense he immediatly came to pick me up. He took my suitcase and it was a 5 minute walk to the house up the hill- while he already explained the neighbourhood to me and where to find supermarket/restaurants. The house is pretty and centrally located. The room is nice and everything is as shown in the pictures. Bartollo provided friendly information and a map. A little breakfast was served at 8:30am and I enjoyed chatting with the other guests (2 more rooms). For breakfast we got a piece of cake and one toast (with marmelade or Nutella), a yoghurt, a cookie and coffee/tea. It was a cold season while I was staying there, so I was happy the heating of the room worked well, but hot water for showering was rare.
Very very nice and clean house with a very good view of the sea,good quality of living.The host is so sweet to pick me up at the (email hidden) there taste very good,convenient transportation and the village is also very safe in the evening.
I didn't get to see Emanuela this time, but her husband is one of the best host. He is very nice and helpful, the breakfast he prepared for me was amazing. I like the location, less tourists more local residents. The house is amazing, and my room just like hotel with private bathroom:) Lovely lovely.
Bartollo, the husband of Emanuela, was a perfect host. Very kind person, giving a lot of tipps on what to visit, where to eat, etc. Very helpful in all aspects. Rooftop view is amazing. Did yoga there in the morning. Nice variety for breakfast. The room I had did not have day light, which makes the air a bit dump besides being dark, but it is a really nice room with private bathroom. All in all definetly a place to recommend.
It was our first bnb experience
Thanks to Manuela and Bartholomew it was a great experience!
Vico equense is a lovely neighborhood and the location of their house is between the locals..
Main Advantage is the host who was very helpful and friendly
Also the pizza metro which was awesome experience, and 4 minutes walking from the house.
The house contains few rooms
Try to get the upper room which has a great view of the sea...
Great restaurant in vicco is Titos
Say hi to lovely marina
Vico is a charming spot close Sorrento and has the advantage of being genuine, quiet and on the Circumvesuviano line. Emanuela's house is very comfortable (in fact Bartolo, her husband, is the regular host) and spacious. If the weather's sunny the breakfast is served on the front upper terrace. Bartolo's very friendly, helpful about the region and pleasant to talk to.
This is the perfect spot to visit the Amalfi coast, pompei and capri! Just 10 min of train from sorrento, but more quiet, but still with a nice choice of restaurant/bars. Bartolo even brought our huge suitcase on his scooter to help us catch our train on time. They are always there to help us. The house is luxurious and really comfortable! And the view is wow from the 2 terrasses! 5/5: charming room, charming people.
