Not the castle on the hill but not bad eitherPosted Sep 10, 2014
Pros: Very quaint, tranquil, and mostly quiet surrounding neighbourhood. Wonderful view. Bathroom/shower was huge. Food was great. Staff friendly.
Cons: There are 2 parking areas & both are terrible. We parked in both & our car was hit 3 times during our stay. Avoid the bottom one: hard to get out of
Location: Sant Agata is about a 15-20 minute walk downhill to the main road. They have nice restaurants but not much shopping. Sorrento is a bus away.
Our experience had good points and bad points. Pros: 1. Quaint, tranquil, and wonderful view of the Bay of Naples 2. Mostly quiet neighbourhood 3. Pool was nice, clean, and secluded 4. Bathroom and shower were huge and nice 5. Food at dinnertime was great and the 20 euro set menu was fantastic value considering it was four courses and included a glass of Prosecco each; breakfast food was nice, especially the pistachio and chocolate cake 6. Staff were friendly and very helpful; we had to complain about ants in our room, and they dealt with the situation quickly and apologetically. They were also very knowledgeable about the area and how to get to touristy places such as Capri, Sorrento, and Pompeii. 7. Great air-conditioning! Cons: 1. Bed was horribly hard and flat and pillows were not fluffy - I could've slept on the tile floor and been just as comfortable. 2. We had an infestation of ants in our room. 3. The steepness and narrowness of the roads coming from the far top car park down to the main building and the building where the rooms are that includes a separate car park: our rental car was hit 3 times in the week that we stayed there. The staff were very apologetic at the time, though. 4. Cannot walk to a beach as the place is quite remote. Buses do not come up the narrow roads, so walking to the nearest village (Sant Agata) takes about 15-20 minutes downhill. 5. Pool was nice but you have to climb down about 4 flights of stairs to get to it.

Out in the booniesPosted Jul 22, 2014
Pros: not much
Location: the Sorrento peninsula is beautiful, lots of things to do, visiting the town of Sant'Agata was fun, people extremely friendly.
Considering this is a agriturismo hotel you would expect a more personalized attention. The rooms are awful, cheap furniture, it smells at insecticide. It is very hard to get there, even GPS won't help. We stayed 3 nights and got lost consistently every time I drove back to the place. Next time, I would consider going staying at Le Grottelle which is not too far from there

It was worth the trouble getting therePosted Jun 27, 2014 on Hotels.com
The place is beautiful, clean and comfortable. Not so good is the wifi that works on and off and getting there was a little difficult. But it was really worth it because of the beauty of the place and the beautiful view.

Rooms need to be updated and cleanedPosted Sep 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
The farm has beautiful views, especially the main building. Staff is friendly. However, the rooms are so dated, dusty and haven't been aired in a while. We got a very spacious room for four but it had a very bad odor. The room had no beds, but rather a sofa that opens up. The headboard of the sofa had spider webs and a smashed spider on the wall. The crown jewel was a musty bed with wet stains. Apparently the ceiling was leaky. We cancelled our accommodation that night and the other two nights. To be fair, I have to add that the owner of the farm helped us to find a different hotel for that night, as it was very late at night. If you like updated and clean rooms, this is not the place for you.

2 week holidayPosted Sep 24, 2013
Brilliant hotel, but wouldn't want to try & find it for first time in the dark! Staff were all amazing & went out of their way to help. Food & wine terrific. Rooms a little basic & perhaps in need of a little updating but spotlessly clean.

A true taste of ItalyPosted Sep 19, 2013
Pros: Our villa had two bedrooms, living room and a beautiful view overlooking the bay. The restaurant food was amazing and very reasonable.
Location: We did not have a car, the bus ride from Sorrento to the town of Torca is about 20 minutes, then a 15 minute walk on a path up hill to the hotel.
Our overall experience was wonderful. The restaurant was so quaint, you could see the ocean from your table it was gorgeous. This farm hotel and restaurant were my favorite, the food was always above average, the staff were always helpful and friendly and the atmosphere was awesome. Keep in mind its located on a mountain in the country and to get to the restaurant or pool you have to walk up and down quite a bit to get to both places. If stairs and pathways are difficult for you this could be a problem. The rooms were clean and spacious with an amazing view.

Great hotelPosted Sep 17, 2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed in this hotel for 1 night. Location was great and our villa was amazing. Definitely would go back and stay for a few days as we arrived late to the hotel and weren't able to enjoy the full benefits of this hotel.

Difficult to find, terrible access, Wonderful foodPosted Jul 30, 2013
Pros: The food, the Manageress. Great Farm style setup
Cons: Parking, Access, Signage. Refresh the room interiors, Update some furniture (looked older and more rundown than I am) Linen was old and tired.
Location: Immediate vicinity not a lot. 15 minutes into town, great restaurants. within 35 minutes Sorrento. 45 min's to 2 hours Pompeii, Paseum. Great Area!
After being led up multiple dead end streets by GPS and having to reverse back we finally found the hotel. Was told upon arrival It's a problem. After signing in we were taken down to our villa, in light of the experience getting there and the roads already encountered I asked if there was a turn around area at the bottom. Was told yes so drove the car and baggage down. (silly, I know) As we checked out our villa, Pre 1960's building, very tired, seedy and run down. I asked about the pool (Family holiday) and was told it was 10 minutes away. I then asked where I could turn the car around and was told It's a problem. We stayed for around 15 minutes, tried to get wifi (No signal at all in our villa) and at that point decided the place just was not viable for the holiday we wanted and would try to sort out an alternative. After 20 minutes of convoluted reversing and a few scares we managed to get back to the reception building. The manageress was wonderful, told us she had nothing else however did assist in finding other accommodation in a hotel in town. We also had the opportunity to eat in their restaurant. Food was amazing. Bottom line, for a quiet, foodie couples holiday if you do not mind a slightly run down accommodation its ideal (Master bedroom has a old baby basinet in the corner) For a active holiday with older children not so much. No wifi signal was a major issue for us however the manageress / owner insisted it was there or could be fixed. Nice People!
