“A beautiful villa in a peaceful location.”
Reviewed 18 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

I visited Italy with family for my sisters wedding in Sorrento. I have three young children (one 4 year old and 2 year old twins), so I wanted a villa with a pool away from the hustle and bustle of Sorrento itself. My dad came across Villa Casa Gaia in S'Ant Agata and it did not disappoint.

The owner, Graziana, was in contact with us consistently in the months leading up to our stay. She would offer advice on everything - transport to and from Sorrento, transport to and from the airport, shopping, eateries etc. We contacted her with lots of questions and she always replied quickly and helpfully.

Arriving at the villa after a difficult flight was a welcome relief. Graziana greeted us all with open arms and immediately invited us up to her terrace for cold drinks and fresh watermelon! The views from the terrace are amazing!! We had a lovely chat with the lovely Graziana (and we met her little dog Bruce, who was a delight and my children adored him) before she gave us a tour of the villa.

The villa is fabulous. It is very authentic and simple, just how I would expect a villa in Italy to be. The rooms are very spacious and they all have a terrace/patio entrance as well as an internal entrance. There is also a seperate apartment with its own bathroom, kitchenette, double bedroom and living area. I stayed in this with my husband and three children and it worked perfectly for us.

The facilities are perfect, a lovely kitchen stocked with cooking utensils and condiments, a spacious living area with a television (not that you need a television in such a beautiful villa) and an outdoor kitchen complete with bbq and pizza oven - amazing! There are also several patio and seating areas with and without shade.

The pool area is lovely, it has the most beautiful views of Sorrento and plenty of sunbeds/chairs and water inflatables. I was a little bit anxious about the pool area because I had read a review that stated it wasnt child friendly. However, when I arrived and saw it for myself I felt completely at ease. Yes, the fence around the pool has large gaps because it is made of a beautiful, natural wood material, but this really isnt an issue as long as the children are supervised, which I expect all parents would make sure of anyway. Also, the staircase in the main villa has an iron banister, again with large gaps, but we just blocked off the doorway with a couch so that my children couldnt access it by themselves. And this was only a back up because the children were always supervised.

The village of S'Ant Agata is a 10 minute walk and has lots of shops, restaurants, ice-cream parlours and some bars. It is a steep hill walk to and from the village from the villa but this really wasnt an issue and I had a double pram to push as well as a tired 4 year old.

I cannot praise this villa enough. It is a beautiful place to relax and take in the views, and I really wouldnt be put off going with children as I found it to be fine.

Graziana gets all the credit though! What a wonderful lady - thank you so much!

Suzanne and the rest of the family xxx

Dear Suzanne, you've been really wonderful hosts! Your little girls are really special and I will not forget their smile. I'm glad you enjoyed the house and I really found it right with you and I felt like I'd greet family people at home. I hope there will be other occasions for your stay in Sorrento perhaps for Christmas, New Year or Easter week. Bruce will always be happy to play with your 3 beautiful little girls and I will make you find new and special pies! A great and affectionate embrace of Graziana

“Thank you, Graziana”
Reviewed 14 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We were first shown around by the cleaner, as Graziana had a family emergency. The cleaner spoke no english and the house wasn't in a presentable manner, probably because Graziana wasn't there. Our first day at the villa was spent cleaning the house, pool and garden. Graziana was totally accessible. We had a little confusion when it came to paying for taxis however Graziana took care of it and bought us fresh, hot donuts. FYI, taxis to the villa from naples airport are 120euros per taxi each way. In the end, the villa was perfect for our stay. Thank you to Graziana and Alfredo(the most helpful and understanding taxi driver known to man)

Dear, sorry if the cleaning lady did not speak Italian, but on the very day of your arrival was born my niece and I as you know I was in the hospital! I am happy that after my arrival have had clear rules of the house, although unfortunately there has been some damage due to the impetuousness in the ballgame of your kids! But it takes a little patience are young and with a lot of energy! As riguiarda confusion for the payment of two taxis, the taxi, the second van rented by you and the journey to accompany your relatives would have had to pay me, but unfortunately these were the demands of the taxi driver (the cost of the van is cheaper than the bus fare from the airport to the square of Sorrento).

“Nice villa, good view too far out of sorrento”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Villa looks lovely on arrival, graziana is lovely and very helpful. Only a short couple of min walk to nearest village
On the downside as in other reviews villa slightly damp, constant beeping by cars and annoying rooster, if renting this would advise to get a car as taxis are really very expensive

The villa is in a vaunted position for his silence! The road leading to the villa, only goes to other private villas, so there are very few cars passing. The rooster is an integral part of the organic garden, so I think it's a sound that takes us into a regenerating and not annoying certain atmosphere !!!

Reviewed 12 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Upon our arrival we were greeted by our hostess, Grazianna offering us some refreshing watermelon. Our 3 night stay at Casa Giai was comfortable for our party of 6 adults. The outdoor kitchen was used by our chef, Robbie to create an amazing meal. The views from the villa are magnificent overlooking the Bay of Naples. St Agate is a short walk if you need to pick up groceries and can even be delivered!

“Friendly and Hospitable Host”
Reviewed 16 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Graziana was very friendly and hospitable and keen to offer advice about the local area.
We had excellent home made breakfasts at a time to suit us, sitting on the balcony when the weather was warm enough.
We enjoyed delicious home made fresh baked cakes every day, all made with ingredients from the garden, such as figs, apples and pears, plus many different sorts of jams and honey, lovely yogurt and bread.
The facilities were fine for us (swimming pool, sitting area, kitchen etc.) Views from the terrace and balconies are fantastic, across the Bay of Naples to Vesuvius. The location is quiet and very pretty.
We enjoyed walking up to S.Agata and catching the bus (the time tables are just a guideline!) and then the train or boat from Sorrento was all very easy and fun.
Graziana kindly gave us a lift down to the port one day, but you can walk, go by bus or use your hire car.
We were advised to keep the house well aired when we arrived and as the weather was a bit cool with high humidity, there was a slight damp feel at times. Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay and were made to feel very welcome.
There is a lot to do in this area.
