Mi diverte l'idea di avere in casa persone nuove ed aiutarle a scoprire angoli nuovi e cose curiose....

This is an ideal place to stay as a base to see Herculean, Pompeii, Sorrento and the Amalfi coast. Cecilia has the most amazing, spacious, self contained apartment. She is also very knowledgable about this area and all advice given was excellent. Everything you can read in the other reviews is accurate. The BEST Airb&b I have stayed at in Italy. Fantastic artwork and fully equipped. You get spoilt on arrival as Cecilia has delicious goodies plus the basics in the kitchen cupboard. Do stay here, you will not regret it!
Totally perfect! Cecilia is very nice and helpful, always ready to give you advices and informations. Very confortable, private and independant studio with everything I needed to cook and to have my breakfast. She welcomed me with fresh pastry. I highly recommand this place.
Cecilia was the sweetest host and the apartment was the most beautiful of any we stayed in. It is so big with beautiful, shiny wooden floors, a large bathroom, and a big comfortable bed! A friend had recommended some food to us that was not available until may. Cecilia went out of her way to surprise us with all the ingredients to make it ourselves. I was shocked by her kindness and generosity! We had it for lunch the next day and it was delicious! We did not spend very much time in castellemmare, but it was a perfect home base for pompei and the Amalfi coast. If you are staying in the area you should stay we her!
Cecilia was incredible. We went from Rome to her apartment which was abotu 15 mins from Sorrento and even closer to Pompeii. The apartment itself is beautiful and comfortable. The location is EXCELLENT...5 mins to the train station and above an AMAZING pub. There are great restaurants in walking distance and she is right on the beach. We plan to stay with her again this summer. The best hospitality one can ask for...and many thanks for the cheese and pork upon our arrival. We loved it!
Wooww I can tell you for sure that i felt really the queen in this special place! Everything is just perfect, so clean and so organised. You have youre own private very spacefull beautiful (museum) appartment with everything you need. The location is also very perfect next to the trainstation Circumvesuviana. Cecilia is a very warm person full of hospitality and so helpful, a new heart opening experience for me and i am so thankfull for this. I really did love Cecilia immediately and i do respect her a lot as a woman! All the love to you dear Cecilia and to youre beautiful family. Grazi mille per tutti. I had a perfect wonderful time over there. You get a reward from me for the best host for sure! :) Till next time, Ciao, Aysel
I stayed with Cecilia and Roberto and was welcomed to their home, the apartment was very spacious and had everything you would need for a comfortable stay. Castellamarre Di Stabia was a destination for me as I was researching my family heritage, if it was not for a referral provided by Cecilia my task would never have achieved the results I came away with.
This area is out of the expense of Sorrento and the concerns of staying in Naples, the city of Castellamarre provides easy access to both for day trips, Pompeii and Vesusvius are also only a few train stops away.
If you are planning a trip to the Amalfi Coast and require a couple of days to visit the cities mentioned, than Cecilia's apartment is the place to stay, only 5 minutes from the Castellamarre Di Stabia train station.
Enjoy your travels...
This may not be a spot that would be on your radar but the place is amazing. It's like having your own flat literally! Everything you need is contained in your place, all the information given to you by Cecilia. Can't rage enough about the place and hospitality..
What a FABULOUS host, location, and lodging! As others have stated, this is an APARTMENT, and a very large one too. My wife and I enjoyed every minute in this town, and more importantly we found a new friend in Cecilia. She welcomed us warmly, had wonderful travel information and suggestions, and became a truly valued advocate and translator in an incident unrelated to our visit with her.
We plan to return to this beautifully unique area of Italy on a future trip, and highly recommend Cecilia and her apartment to everyone heading toward the Amalfi Coast, Pompeii, and surrounding areas.
Cecilia was one of our two favorite hosts during our month in Italy. She is so generous with her time, so warm, friendly, and helpful. If we mentioned we might be thinking of taking a train to Salerno, for example, she was instantly on the computer checking schedules, routes, and the possibility of taking a boat instead. Cecilia is a very dear person, one I hope your are lucky enough to meet.
Her place is wonderful. Large, clean, and bursting with great original art that her father has collected. Don't worry about the fact that she has a young son--the place she rents is a separate apartment, and we never heard any noise from her apartment. And Castellamare was a nice break from the tourist trail and at the same time, close enough to Ercolano, Pompeii, and Napoli to let you jump back into the fray for day trips. We strongly recommend Cecilia and her apartment to you.
Perfect apartment for short or medium stays. Cecilia is extremely accommodating & will help you with anything you ask. Amazing hospitality & was grateful for the yummy breakfast provided first day. Travel guides, maps & brochures all available to borrow. The port that will take you to Sorrento or Capri is 2 minutes on foot, the Circumvesuviana train that takes you to Pompeii or Sorrento about 5 minutes.
Don't be misled about what's written about Castellammare, "non-tourist-friendly" means that it's a real Italian town & not a foreigner/overpriced bubble like Sorrento.
Would absolutely return for the summer!
Grazie mille Cecilia. Spero che ci vediamo di nuovo.
Roberto, il marito di Cecilia, è stato da noi soltanto una notte (arrivato la sera alle 21,00 e ripartito il giorno dopo alle 07,30) il tempo di scambiarci 4 chiacchiere dove traspare una personalità simpatica, cordiale ed educata. E' stato un piacere conoscerlo e pertanto speriamo veramente di ospitarlo nuovamente a casa nostra.
It was extremely difficult to communicate with my guest he did not answer to any of my emails and he did not answer his phone either.
I think that maybe it is the first time that they travel via airbnb because they where extremely demanding and I have the impression that they thought to be in a 5 star Hotel which of course is not the case, it's my home.
The last night they told me that they needed to stay one more night because they committed a mistake in the reservation,fortunately my place was available for one more night so I could arrange everything for them.They did't even thanked me for my quick solution so this reaction makes me think again that they haven't understood the airbnb system and that they definitely think that they are in a Hotel.
I would not recommend anybody to have them at your home as guests.
Response from Cecilia:
Penso che la pulizia e un minimo di organizzazione sia richiesta e in genere si trova anche su airbnb. Grazie comunque di aver replicato solo dopo la mia recensione e non subito. Buon lavoro!
Ho ospitato nel mio B&B Cecilia e la sua famiglia insieme a dei suoi amici, ci siamo subito trovati come dei vecchi amici che non si vedevano da tempo!!!!!!Quando sono arrivati abbiamo scambiato due chiacchiere in giardino davanti ad un aperitivo e mi sono subito resa conto di quanto calore emanavano!!!Sono d' avvero contenta di averli conosciuti, spero che sia nata un amicizia, e spero di Ospitarli al più presto!!!!!
Cecilia & Roberto sono due persone carine, simpatiche, estremamente oneste e pulite.
Questa bella coppia offre una parte della propria enorme, nuovissima e bellissima casa in un posto davvere ottimo da usare come base per le miglior escursioni da fare in Campania: Pompei, Ercolano, Sorrento e costiera Amalfitana..non dimentichiamoci gli spostamenti verso Capri..
Un luogo incantevole dove poter trascorrere in relax qualche giorno, godendo della vita calma di Castellammare, delle attenzioni che questa bella coppia saprà darvi, delle Terme a poco prezzo che ci sono nei dintorni e perchè no? di qualche buon consulto che Roberto (nutrizionista) potrà offrirvi.... Che dire? ho visto nascere questo loro B&B e ne sono un sostenitore. Lo suggerisco senza ombra di dubbio a chiunque voglia visitare questo angolo di campania e voglia godere di un soggiorno a 5 stelle!!!!
(website hidden) porzine di casa che Cecilia e Roberto offrono è praticamente indipendente e potrete godere della vostra vacanza in totale autonomia pur sapendo di contare in ogni momento della loro presenza, dal transfert al porto/aeroporto ai migliori suggerimenti per pianificare il vostro soggiorno in quella porzione di paradiso!!!
Cecilia & Robert are two nice people, nice people, very honest and clean.
This lovely couple has a portion of their huge, beautiful and renovated home in a really great place to use as the basis for the best excursions to do in Campania: Pompeii, Ercolano, Sorrento and Amalfi Coast .. do not forget the trips to Capri ..
A lovely place to spend relaxing days, enjoying the quiet life of Castellammare, the attention that will give to you this nice couple, the cheap Thermal SPA near there and why not? some good counseling that Roberto (nutritionist) can offer .... What can I say? I have seen the birth of this B & B and I am a supporter. I definitely recommend it to anyone visiting this corner of Campania and want to enjoy of a Five Star Accommodation !!
ps. the place offered by Cecilia and Roberto is practically independent and you can enjoy your holiday in total autonomy knowing that Cecilia and Roberto are always happy to help you with your requests or doubts on traveling and transferts you might need to the port / airport and to give the best ideas for planning your stay in that part of paradise!
