Wonderful bed and breakfast

Posted Jun 24, 2017
My daughter and I stayed at Villa Pollio for nine nights in June. The cleanliness of this charming and homey bed and breakfast was a ten. We saved a lot of money by eating breakfast here every morning and always had a fresh supply of water, juice, milk, pastries, cereal, jelly, and often fresh fruit grown from the garden as well. Alberto is a most attentive host of the bed and breakfast, always making sure we knew where to go for our day trips and helping with the planning. We loved the local restaurant on the beach named Tico Tico so much that we ate there twice. When wandering about the streets of Meta, we came upon a bakery that had the best cookies and also found a couple of wonderful pizzarias. Our trip was wonderful and we were sad to see it end. I would definitely stay at Villa Pollio for a future vacation and bring more family with us next time. We couldn't thank Alberto enough for the experience and Mary, the young woman who helps keep the place spotless.

Visit for a Sorrento wedding

Posted Jul 27, 2016 on Hotels
Alberto made us feel very welcome, even when we got their late at night due to a delayed flight. Rooms were very spacious, and the kitchen area and air conditioning were a real bonus! Was in close proximity to the train which connects Sorrento and Napoli, and coach to the airport stops nearby too. Local beach is about 20 mins walk away and the very nice Covent Garden pub is very near :) Thank you Alberto! x

Train station five minutes away and bus stop in front of residence. Our room was excellent, with nice balcony to sit on overlooking the street. Only problem was traffic from early morning til late at night. Alberto was a wonderful host and we would stay here again.

Great B&B

Posted Jun 3, 2015 on Hotels
We highly recommend Villa Pollio first of all because of its host – Alberto is kind, helpful and generous. Whenever you need him – he was there. He printed out our eTickets for us, supplied us with freshly picked cherries, oranges, and lemons, and even super-delicious lemonchello. We found at the villa everything we were looking for: nothing fancy, but all we needed – kitchenette, safe, WiFi, bathroom. Location is perfect: 3 minutes from Meta train station through underpath under the tracks, few steps to the grocery store down the street, 6 minutes by train to Sorrento and 30 min to Pompei, 15-20 min on foot to the beach and Tico-Tico Restaurant. Commute to Amalfi is easy from VP: bus stop is next to the train station, we bought a ticket for $8 from driver. The ticket is good for 24 hours, so since we left early we were able to visit Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello in one day – all for $8. Overall – great experience.

Great place to base near Sorrento

Posted May 21, 2015
Pros: The cleanliness, personal touches, proximity to train station.
Cons: Everything was great
Location: 2 minute walk to train station, 15 minute walk to beach and restaurants
Villa Pollio is a great place to stay near Sorrento without the huge price tag attached. It was everything we needed. Great, clean room with private bathroom, breakfast supplied in the room, car parking, and only 2 minute walk to the train station. the personal touches were first class. Alberto kept in contact from the moment we booked. He supplied us with fresh oranges and lemons from his beautiful garden, and was always available if we needed anything. He even helped us book a tour when we had difficulty booking it because nobody could speak English. The girl who cleans and looks after the apartments (I think her name was Alissa?? Or something like that) was also lovely and extremely helpful. We would book this apartment again if we ever returned to the area. We would not hesitate in recommending Villa Pollio to anybody. Thank you Alberto for a lovely stay.

Best Option in Sorrentine Penisula

Posted Apr 29, 2014 on Hotels
Wow, what an excellent experience we had staying at Villa Pollio. The BnB is only a few stops away on the local train from the hustle and bustle of busy Sorrento in the peaceful town of Meta! Plus the location of the BnB from the Meta stop is so convenient, a 1-5 minute walk. Albert, a local and the BnB owner is so accommodating and has plenty of knowledge and recommendations to make for the surrounding area. The accommadations are excellent, spotless, well kept with old Italian charm. The included breakfast is great for those who want to start the day with a quick meal at the villa consisting of espresso, coffee, fruit drinks, bottled water, croissants and much more. All of which are provided to you in your room and you prepare yourself. We also enjoyed great meals out at local places in Meta based on recommendations from Alberto. We originally planned to stay 3 days and ended up staying for an additional night because of how much we enjoyed our accommodations and the town of Meta. If you plan on visiting the Almafi coast and want to enjoy a small Italian town and avoid all the tourist this is a great option. The locals are so friendly and very welcoming and Albert runs an amazing business and is so kind! We hope to return to Meta and stay at Villa Pollio again!

Would go back any time

Posted Jun 25, 2013
Pros: location, the room, and the owner
Cons: many scooters drive by all day, but that is the case anywhere along the Sorrento coast.
Location: Right by the train station
Great owners, great room, great home away from home. I was very happy to have a large room with my own kitchenette and balcony. It was quiet, clean, and comfortable. I travel led as a single female and this Villa was great, also less than a 5 minute walk from the train (exit the train station, turn right, and go down the stairs to the right. On the other side of the tunnel you will come up on an Italian Post Office, the B&B is right there. )
