Love to travel, meeting new people/cultures, enjoying life.
The reservation was canceled 76 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Lovely little apartment near Vico Equense, just a few mins walk from the circumvesuviana train stop, and around 10 mins on the train to Sorrento where there are plenty of bars and cafés.
Everyone was most helpful, despite our negligible italian.
The apartment was spotless, and very quiet. Big external shutters meant that we got a lovely nights sleep. It came with washing up liquid, olive oil, and liquid for the washing machine, which is not always the case.
We came with a car, and there wasn't really anywhere to park, we did find a space in a public square, or by the side of the road a few mins away, but in busier times, this might be a problem.
We can totally recommend this appartement! :)
My boyfriend and I spent 8 nights in there. Sergio and his family were really very friendly and helpful. Fabrizia picked us up from the station. The Nonna even provided us some fruits, vegetables, pasta and coffee during our stay and the neighbour offered us some fatastic figs. We felt really welcomed - thanks a lot!
We didn't need a car because of the great public transport connection. Nice, quiet beach (end of September) nearby.
The appartement had everything we needed - really modern, everything like in the description.
Best decision to stay there for a week near Naples, Sorrent and the Amalfi coast!
Thanks a lot!!
My brother, boyfriend and I stayed at Sergios lovely appartment during 8 days in August. The place was great: well equipped with everything you might need for a relaxing vacation, including a fruit and vegetable basket from nonna Elvira (at least I guess that it was her who brought it). She lives just downstairs and was really warm and welcoming towards us. She offered us vegetables, coffee and a really delicious cake. Also her cat is pretty impressiv.
Our host Sergio and his girlfriend were amazing too. They were really helpful and provided us with some great tips regarding beaches and restaurants. Also the neighbours, with whom we comunicated mostly with hands and feet and a little bit in our lousy italian, were super friendly. One of them gave us a basket of the best figs we have ever eaten.
As for the little town Seiano: it is a really sweet place that actually has everything you need. The beach was nice, even though it was pretty crowed, but we expected it since we came in the middle of August. The parking situation can be a bit tricky, but we always managed to find a place. I guess any time apart from August it should be less problematic though.
l'appartement est simple et bien équipé. L'accueil part la famille de Sergio fut très agrèable dès notre arrivée. Le cadre est sympa mais la plage très convoité en Aout. Les petits moins, l'appartement est au milieu de petites rues charmantes mais qui au moindre bruit résonne beaucoup et la rue principale qui descend vers la plage nous ont laissé entendre la fameuse tendance italienne à klaxonner !!! Avoir une voiture peut être très pratique pour découvrir la baie de Naples jusqu'a la cote Amalfitaine, mais très peu de place pour se garer. En rapport qualité prix l'offre est bien.
This is the ideal place for a real slice of Italian life. The apartment is a simple and well equipped base with great transport connections and a fantastic balcony from which to watch the world go by. Thank you to Sergio and especially his grandmother, who lives in the apartment below, who showed us generous hospitality including coffee and cake, and the neighbour who gave us fresh figs from the tree. Sergio's father in law very kindly gave us a lift from our hotel to the apartment and then on to the beach! He also suggested the best pizzeria in Vico, Pizza a Metro. You won't regret going! Seiano beach is a 20 minute walk down hill via a winding path with views across the valley and the Bay of Naples. Seiano train station is a few minutes walk and local buses can be picked up along the main road too. Just 4 stops away is Sorrento and further links to Amalfi, Positano and Capri. We loved exploring Sorrento and finding the less touristy corners of it.
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans l'appartement que Sergio nous a loué.
Entièrement refais de frais, il est fonctionnel, bien aménagé et suffisamment spacieux pour un deux pièces (Petit plus qui fait plaisir un dressing attenant à la chambre). La terrasse est bien agréable et l'appartement est situé près de la petite côte balnéaire de Seinao (prendre le raccourci pour rejoindre la plage).
L'accueil de Sergio et de sa famille fut extrêmement agréable, très discret, très bien intentionné, toujours serviable et de bon conseils. Coup de coeur spéciale pour la Nonna, d'une gentillesse et d'une générosité infinie avec nous.
Staying at the apartment was a great experience; its all very clean and the kitchen's ideal for cooking, the bed's comfortable and in a quiet room to sleep. Sergio and the host family are absolutely lovely and really helpful indeed. As we got some delicious pasta, that the nonna di casa prepared when we arrived, made us feel at home immediately. Also the atmosphere and the kindness of every family member is a reason to go back at every time. Thanks so much!

A MUST STAY APARTMENT
My girlfriend and I spent a week at the apartment, and we are confident in saying that this was hands down our best airbnb experience. There are so many positive things to say about our time here, I'm not quite sure where to start.
The apartment: A great 1 bedroom apartment that has been recently revamped. Everything is modern and all facilities and utilities are provided. Lovely view from the balcony over the valley and train bridge.
Location: Perfect! 2 minutes walk and you have a train station connecting to Naples and Sorrento (10 minutes train to Sorrento, 2 minutes to Vico Equense), 5 minute walk and you have a coffee shop, supermarket and amazing view over the valley of Seaino. 10 minutes walk and you're at the beach of Seaino which is a really fun pebble beach. It really is the perfect location.
Customer service: I have to say that the customer service from Francesco's family was absolutely brilliant. Over the week, we were offered coffee and biscuits, we were given amazing chocolate torte and tomato, basil and mozzarella snacks. Any questions were answered well and quickly.
The people: these guys are amazing! Francesco and his sister came to meet us at the train station and walked us back to the apartment. Sergio came to meet us a few days later and gave some great tips on places to go. I'm writing this review on the way to a beach he recommended!
The best thing about our time here, and a great thing for future airbnbers to know is staying here feels like staying with good friends, with the customer service of a five star hotel.
Thanks so much to Sergio, Francesco and your amazing family for an unforgettable holiday experience! We would love to have you in Australia when you visit :)
We had a great time in Sergio and Franchesca's apartment. Everything was very new and clean. They were friendly and always available to help and make us feel at home. The place is very close to the train station which takes you to places like Sorrento and Pompei. Also, the balcony has an awesome view!
I really recommend staying with Sergio and would go back any time.
What an impressive guy! Friendly, smart and entertaining. I am sure Sergio is welcomed everywhere he goes because he is so good at putting others at ease. We had friendly chats about Italy, Thailand and the world, and we ate a few good meals together. But mostly, he was just good company. When the shower hose broke upstairs and the water filter hose downstairs began to leak, he was full of jokes about what might break next -- I would have cried about having to mop the floor again and again if I could have stopped laughing from his ... dry jokes. I'm sure others will enjoy his company as much as I did. Good journies, Sergio.
Sergio & his family were ideal guests; very respectful of the apartment, clean & tidy and very courteous in communication. It is always nice to have a family stay at the apartment as they leave the place with a very homely feel. I would whole-heartedly invite Sergio & his family to stay in the future. Thanks!
Sergio and his girlfriend were great guests to host. Super friendly, super clean, super-respectful. Highly recommended.
