Ciao, sono nata tra due splendide isole circa 40 anni fa :) e vivo a napoli con Sabrina e Mimmo mi occupo di informatica e ambiente, mi piace camminare, girare in bici per la mia città, amo l'arte e mi piace fotografare.
We really enjoyed our stay in the apartment of Valentina. It is easily reached from the railway station and you are immediately in the old centre of Naples. The basics, such as bed and bathroom are more than ok. What really charmed us was the atmosphere of the place, the beautiful photographs everywhere, the astonishing views from the roof terrace. Above all Valentina is a lovely and care taking host.
The place is very cosy and calm.
Valentina's family is very friendly, careful and always ready to help. My mom caught a cold the first day on her way to this place, so Valentina's parents were so kind to accompany her to the doctor's. They met my parents in Panza as well as we discussed at the arrival day. My parents always felt that they are taken care of.
This place is full of kind atmosphere created by their owners.
Very nice apartment. Both Valentina and Sabrina were very helpful and accommodating.
Everything about house and Procida has been written in reviews below. I can only agree and recommend!
Luigi and his wife were very welcoming and helpful. It is such a lovely situation with stunning views. You can do as much or as little as you want activity wise. Wish we had booked for longer!
We had a wonderful time in Naples at Valentina and Sabrina´s house. Valentina and Sabrina were very hospitable and welcoming, and the room was lovely. The house is extremely well located, we loved walking around Naples and sampling as many pizza places as we could - top marks go to Da Michele, just 5 minutes from the house. Wonderful roof terrace. We would highly recommend this room if you are visiting Naples.
I only wish I could upload come of MY pictures of this place! It is a beautiful little apartment. You really cant see the size of it from the pictures, but it has a really big bedroom with a king size bed and a day bed. The bedroom has huge french doors that open onto the terrace with a pull down screen (like a garage door) so we slept with the doors open every night. The fan kept us plenty cool. We never turned the tv on, but did discover that the bedroom and just out front of the apartment are the best spots for wifi. There is also a daybed in the little dining room which was convenient because we each had our privacy! Our hosts, Luigi (Valentinas Dad) and Chiarra his wife were sweet and helpful.
We did have trouble getting ahold of them when we arrived, but he said that had never happened before. I did have a new burner phone that I bought at Termini in Rome, just to use while here, and it may have been to blame. But since we got in a little late (the buses are notoriously undependable- we ended up paying $30 to a taxi for a ride to Panza, we didnt have time to shop for groceries, they brought down tomatoes and onions and garlic nd coffee and cream and sugar! They were wonderful.
Another benefit is that you are inside of their homes gate, and it just feels very safe. Also there are the thermals. Its a hike down,
not too far, but when you get to the bottom of the road there are 320 steps to go! It is great excercise, and if your knees hurt, you're gonna soak anyway. I had read about the guy down there who supposedly calls himself the pirate of sorghetto, and offers to paint mud on your body and sell you hot mud... Hes a sweet guy, not pushy and never inappropriate in any way. He cooks potatoes and eggs in the really hot spots- he gave us each two potatoes the first night we went down there and we ate them with
eggs and pancetta the last day we were there. The place is very clean and neat-
Shower is a little funky- its on the side instead of the end of the tub so its a little awkward but sufficient! We felt very fortunate to find it! The terrace is to die for- SPECTACULAR views every day- 24-7- Cool little clothes drying rack out there as well as a table and chairs and chaise lounge. God, we hated to leave Ischia. Loved Panza good and kind people there and we felt so safe, Loved Lunas pizza and the little bakery two doors down! Loved our walk to St Angelo, and snorkeling with NEMO'S! I would love to go back to Ischia to live for a season. Then how would I EVER leave...
Valentina's accomodation is very cozy and realy big! In the flat you will find all that you need. There is a supermarket and bakery in 1 minute from flat.
It situated on opposide to harbour on south part of island.
The best beach only in 5-10 minutes walk and it's partially free.
The best island's restaurant "Girona" is also in five minutes.
We reccomend Valentina's accomodation.
We had a really nice time in Napoli and at Valentina's place. The apartment is very nicely arranged, modern, with artistic touch to it. The location is good, at the historic center. The neighborhood is authentic Italian, with small streets... Although it may look like it's not safe, but I ran into no trouble at all, the locals were nice and helpfull at times when needed.
Valentina and Sabrina are good and friendly hosts, they allowed us to use everything in their apartment, we had breakfast everyday and since we caught Valentina on a weekend, we were treated with a delicious lemon cake.
As a dog lover and owner, Mimmo was a nice and warm presence. I loved him, although I could see that they were trying to keep Mimmo from bothering us, but that wasn't the case at all.
If it were up to me, I would've been fine even if he wasn't on the terrace during the day, but it's the hosts decision.
Overall a very good accommodation in a good location. If you're with a car as I was, the parking can be problematic at times, but you learn the Italian chaotic tricks and soon you'll manage it :).
Valentina e Sabrina sono due ospiti perfette! Molto gentili e simpatiche! Onorati di aver fatto la nostra prima esperienza con voi!
A presto, spero di venirvi a trovare a casa vostra!
Grazie di tutto!
Molto simpatica . alla mano , non si è creata nessun problema ,
Valentina e Sabrina sono state meravigliose, non sole come ospiti, ma anche aiutandomi nel capire e aggiornare il mio sito.
Sono state gentili ed educatissime. La carica umana di Valentina ha subito dato una nota di confidenza alla loro, breve permanenza; è stato un gran piacere averle come ospiti e spero che ritornino quando decidono di rivedere Siracusa, magari in una stagione meno calda:). Grazie Valentina e Sabrina buone vacanze.
It was great having Valentina staying here at El 8! Very considerate guests.
Nice guest! I highly recommend her! Thanks Valentina for taking care of everything, looking forward to see you soon!
Valentina y Sabrina han sido unas huespedes estupendas, muy tranquilas, respetuosas, me ha gustado mucho tenerlas , y puede ser que vaya a su casa en italia en un futuro cercano, un saludo guapas.
E' una persona stupenda, ho la fortuna di averla come amica.
La sua casa nel cuore del centro antico di Napoli è accogliente, colorata e adornata con le sue splendide fotografie.
Soggiornare da lei e godere del suo splendido terrazzo lo consiglio a chiunque voglia trascorrere un po' di tempo a Napoli.
Valentina is a nice girl and a good friend of mine. She's very kind and helpful. Her place in Naples is cosy, well furnished and just in the city center. Further more it has a wonderful view of the city from above. I'm sure Vale will do everything she can to make your stay pleasant and comfortable. Come and visit her!!
I've known Valentina for 10 years and she's one of the sweetest and most reliable persons i've ever met. I've been to her house in Napoli and it is lovely and well taken care of. Don't hesitate to get in touch with her if you're looking for accommodation in Napoli and Procida.
The place is lovely ... and the island, too! What are you waiting for? Hurry up, don't waste your time!
