Independent villa | Private pool | Air conditioned bedrooms | Maid included |

Overview

Gli Ulivi is set on a terraced hillside near Sorrento and faces the sea with superb views of the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius. The interior is comfortably furnished in very good taste, centering on a large air-conditioned living room that leads out to a lovely terrace furnished with a table and barbeque for alfresco meals. A very well kept garden of olive trees and rockeries leads up to the property’s pièce de resistance, a sunny terrace with a small pool that seems to float above the Bay of Naples. The shops and restaurants of Vico Equense are within walking distance, as is a pretty pebble beach, although both are accessed by several flights of steps. This is an ideal property for non-drivers who don’t mind a steep climb or two, as a train service connects Vico Equense to the area’s key sites, including Sorrento, Pompeii, Herculaneum and Naples. For drivers there is parking in a garage below the villa with a lift up to the house.

We have just spent 3 amazing weeks in Italy, thanks to Tuscany Now your service and thorough documentation with regard to our chosen 3 villas (Gli Ulivi, L'Orto di Alice and Monterosa) have made our visit memorable. Each was unique, in very different parts of Italy (Amalfi Coast, Umbria and Tuscany), your photos & descriptions 100% accurate..... we all had our individual favourite .. But overall we felt that Tuscany Now have found a very special couple, Aldo and Valda from Gli Ulivi who will remain in our thoughts for years to come. Monterosa, was good value and an excellent base for exploring Tuscany, very we'll equipped.

Aldo and Vania your welcome and hospitality made us feel at home from the very beginning. Your home is amazing and we loved minute of being here. We had always wanted a house with great views, an easy walk to a village and a wonderful pool. This house has fulfilled our expectations. we have great memories and photographs to take home with us.

The property appears to be smaller than it actually is, video of the property would highlight it better. Really like how accurately it described the property, and found email connection to Tuscany Now very helpful, as we are 8 hours time difference from London, when booking the property. Thank you.

What a wonderful vacation we had here. The location is absolutely stunning and the hosts are wonderful. We had most dinners on the terrace as there aren't many restaurants that can offer the kind of view the villa can. Tips; go to Pompeii just before the ticket office closes, at 5.45pm as there was almost nobody around, giving ample opportunity to see everything , the downside is that you only have 90 minutes but we found this enough time. Specially since there are no lines and you can actually walk through the town. The other tip is to go up the chairlift on Capri. It is very tourist only kind of thing but the views are unparalleled and breathtaking. Allow enough time to sit and relax in the gardens at the top. We also took the speed boat around Capri and had tremendous fun pretending to be seamen. It is choppy and messy but even our 9 year old took the wheel and had fun. Positano is a very touristy but amazing. The houses hug the cliffs and seem to be built on top of each other, leaving almost no space for roads and stairs, but still there are wonderful views and vistas. Altogether we had a perfect stay and we'll be back.

Our thanks to Aldo and Vania for sharing their piece of Paradise with us. Gli Ulivi was what we hoped for and more than we expected when booking from Australia. A beautiful villa, exceptional views and wonderful hospitality. Tip; catch the 7.45 train to Sorrento and the 8.30boat to Capri can recommend the boat trip tour around the Island excellent value for money, but do it before 11am as after that that tour is very busy. If eating in Vico Equense we recommend Terra Mia also Tito's and Pizza from Pizza Metro. Our thanks to Aldo and Vania.

We loved our week at Vico Equense at Gli Ulivi, the second part of our honeymoon in Italy. What lovely and friendly owners Aldo and Vania are, so generous and thoughtful. We alternated between lounging around the villa and the pool and little day trips to Sorrento and Capri. Both easily accesable via the train from Vico Equense station. Tito's and Terra Mia were favourite restaurants, but some nights it was just nice to just sit back, drink in hand and watch the beautiful sun sets. Many thanks for a great stay. The now Mr and Mrs Rudland.

The owners (whom live below) are a fantastic couple and tremendous resources on the area. The views from the villa are spectacular. The villa is nicely appointed and perfect for two adults and two children. You do not need to rent a car with the train so close by.

The terrace and the view were fantastic. It's very easy to get around to the sights (hardly used the car). The owners were very nice and thoughtful - they provided some basic supplies and large basket of fruit as well as a souvenir poster.

We liked the great view of Naples bay and the easy access to both the Sorrento and Amalfi coasts without being in a busy location

We liked the position - ease of access to the town; the pool, which meant that we didn't have to stray very far from the property. The terrace overlooking the harbour at Vico, with peerless views across the Bay of Naples to Vesuvius and Ischia. (...) You don't make enough of the fantastic view from the terrace, which runs the length of the property. When you sit back under the parasol and watch the sun sinking into the sea right in front of you, with the massive bulk of Vesuvius on the right and the island of Ischia looking like a mythical land on the horzon, la dolce fa niente is yours for the taking! You are spot on about a car being redundant. Vico Equense is an ideal touring base and does not kowtow to The English Tourist; I would recommend it to anyone who wants to visit the Amalfi Coast, be within striking distance of Pompei and herculaneum, and get a real taste of Southern Italian life.

We loved the dipping pool, the easy access to the beach and just a short climb to the city ... Beautiful view and well-appointed interior - the owners were extremely nice and very accomodating. We hope to come back soon! I would certainly recommend TN's services and hope to book again.
