Ciao mi chiamo Emanuela amo nuotare, cucinare, fare passeggiate.
Mi piace far conoscere ai miei ospiti le bellezze della mia terra.
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
Emanuela and Bartolo's house was beautiful. We enjoyed the spaciousness of the room and the immaculate cleanliness.
Bartolo was a very gracious host and made a wonderful breakfast each morning. He also recommended a good scooter rental place. The apartment was centrally located and, again, very clean.
The next couple comments are not meant as negative feedback but rather helpful hints for the next person to stay:
1. WiFi and cell service was limited for us but could be due to our providers or devices (Verizon and AT&T).
2. We had some issues with hot water - Bartolo was quick to fix the problem after we asked him about it.
Emanuela and Bartolo were fantastic hosts in Vico. The suite in their house was new, clean, well laid out, with high ceilings and plenty of space, and includes a private, new bathroom. There are beautiful views from the balcony and rooftop patio which are accessible through the upper floors of the home. Bartolo has good English and prepared breakfast for us in the mornings, and helped with scooter rentals, local info, maps, etc. Vico is beautiful and quieter than Sorrento, with a small-town feel but is a short drive from all attractions on the Amalfi coast area. Highly recommended BnB for value and location. Thanks Bartolo!!
We had a wonderful stay with Bartolo and Emanuela. They met us at the bus stop and escorted us to their beautiful home. The room we stayed in was very romantic, fresh, and airy. They have a deck on top of their house that overlooks the town of Vico Esquense and a church bell rings in the near distance. Truly amazing view. You can even see the volcano.
My husband and I traveled air b and b for 2 months and this was by far best breakfast we had.
Our last night we were invited to dinner with them and their friends. They cooked the BEST Italian meal we have EVER had. They were so warm and welcoming.
If you need the internet make sure to have it turned it on. It is off quite often.
The location of this b and b is 5 minute walk and 10 minute train ride into Sorrento. Very easy to find and manage. Vico Esquense is big and nice enough to spend a day at as well. There is also a market close by.
We thank these fantastic hosts VERY much!!!

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
Emanuela and Bartolo were both incredible. They were accommodating and helpful in every way possible. A great example is that Bartolo even spent some time and gave me a driving lesson so that I could improve at being able to drive a manual transmission car.
The room was incredibly clean and the breakfast each morning was delicious. There was always a wide spread of options to choose from and I was always very full when I left breakfast.
They are in a great location-- not far from the train and not far from the center of town. It can be a little tricky to find them initially, but once you do, it's easy to always find your way back.
I recommend this bed and breakfast very highly!
We had a most beautiful stay in Vico with Emanuela and her husband as our hosts. We were on honeymoon and they gave us the master bedroom which included air conditioning but rarely needed to turn it on since the tile floors kept the room nice and cool. Comfortable and very clean, very spacious and felt like home! We enjoyed breakfast every morning on the terrace with our hosts and planned our route for that day. Emanuela and her husband really made us feel right at home and assisted us a lot with taking our heavy luggage up and down the tiny streets by scooter. Access to the house is only by walking and we didn't mind it at all, they have parking just 3 minutes by walking into Vico's center. It's best to rent a scooter of which our host helped us with to get around in the neighboring area because of the narrow roads and streets. Overall, we had a wonderful experience here and we surely will come back and stay in the future, Vico is the ideal location to stay away from the thousands of tourists in Sorrento. Vico is great to base yourself in if you want to explore the whole area while saving lots of money from expensive tourist hotels! Our room was bigger than any hotel room could offer and for a really affordable price. We were impressed.
I loved the house, the town, and so many aspects of my stay with Emanuela, Bartolo, and Iacopo! I feel like I was part of an Italian family, lol, which was new to me!!!
You can expect an extremely clean home. Spotless and cleaned daily with fresh towels every other day. The breakfast was enormous on the patio with lots of choices of pre-prepared Italian food like biscotti and Nutella, as well as fresh coffee, yogurt, and muesli.
They are a super kind and caring couple and extend their welcome to you. If you're looking for a private hotel like experience this isn't the match. There wasn't total privacy here, but if you want a great S. Italian cultural experience then you'll love it here;)
It's also not a match if you like extreme quiet in the day or late mornings because the sound travels through the house. I started waking up at 9:15am because of this even though I like sleeping in till 11am, but wasn't a biggie. I napped easily when no one was home in thr later day.
I daily overheard (endearing?) family arguments so if you're not used to a little Napolitan family commotion than you might not appreciate the sweetness of this place! I tried ignoring it throughout the week but I have to say I wasn't used to it. Still, everyone was so helpful and nice to me I don't regret staying here! So cute.
The view from the rooftop is breathtaking. The town center holds many gems that they'll let you know about!
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!!
Emanuella and Bartolo made me feel completely at home, and that made my stay very memorable. The B&B, room and location were also lovely. I'll be back. Thanks!
