Gloria Apt, Castello Giusso, Vico Equense

  • 5 out of 5
Apartment is in a beautiful, peaceful setting within a converted castle overlooking the Bay of Naples & Vico Equense.You have the use of the extensive grounds,a large pool & the private beach which you can access by a lift (or by steps if you are very fit).The Apartment is more than adequate for 4 adults with two bathrooms (one upstairs bath/shower one ground floor shower only).Kitchen facilities are also very good.The bedrooms are both a good size (one has double bed and one has 2 singles) on a mezzanine floor that overlooks the living area but here are only curtains across the mezzanine balcony to provide any privacy which some may find a little disconcerting.There is loads of hanging and storeage space for clothes. It is well kept & clean but you will probably spend most of your time on the lovely private terrace area that overlooks the pool & out over the bay. You do have full access to the rest of the castle, bar and grounds most of the time but be warned it is a popular venue for weddings due to its stunning setting and you are not able to use all the facilities on these days. We found the pool and beach out of bounds on several afternoons which was a little disappointing and if you like an early night the celebrations may disturb you but they were always finished for midnight latest.On the plus side you do get a bird's eye view from your terrace if you want to indulge in the Italian pastime of people watching! The Castle is only a few minutes easy walk from the town centre that has plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants (Da Francos for excellent cheap pizza open 7 days, Terra Mia and Al Buco for very good, reasonably priced restaurant meals but they are not open on Mondays.Frequent visits to the renowned ice cream parlour 'Gabriele' are a must to sample the vast choice of ice creams & cakes.The train & bus station is a five minute walk & is on the main Naples-Sorrento line with frequent, cheap trains that stop at both Pompeii & Herculaneum which gives a welcome break from driving. Sorrento is appx 10 miles down the coast for ferry to Capri & Amalfi is about 20 miles if you are brave enough to try the drive which is not for the feint hearted even for experienced drivers. Lucio the owner met us at the apartment, speaks good English if your Italian is not up to scratch & is very helpful.If you have any problems you can contact him easily.All the Castle staff are also very friendly & helpful.We would not hesitate to recommend this property to others.

again and again and .... WOW

  • 5 out of 5
Vico Equense is one of the most beautiful villages we've been to. The locals are charming and friendly and the setting is just ... WOW. Vico is crowned by its castle 'Castello Giusso' which is set upon the cliffs overlooking the Gulf of Naples, Vesuvio and the Sorrento coast. Amazingly it is right in the heart of the village at the end of a cul-de-sac! We rent our 2-bed maisonette apartment from Lucio - the apt contained everything we needed (kitchen plus utensils, 2x bath incl. toilet, washing machine, 'open plan' dining and sitting area) with the surplus of an East facing ~35m2 terrace. It is small but cleverly arranged (long live maisonette!) with the 2 bed-rooms only separated by curtains from the downstairs part. We first felt that this was a little too private but after the first night we saw that this made no difference at all!
What really makes this apartment special is the castle itself (obviously) but also its huge grounds containing a play ground, a massive swimming pool, a stunning public terrace, the private beach (walk down the steps at least once - it's all about THE views ), its location within the village but also in relation to its surroundings (bang in the middle between Naples and Sorrento) ... the list seems endless.

We had a great time there and Castello Giusso's charm, Vico's helpful locals and the area itself made us wanting to go back again and again and ...

... and I nearly forgot the food ... excellent!!!!

Great place to stay in Campania in September

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed there in the mid September and would like to come again (but I am not sure we will as there are so many more places to visit in the the world!). It is a real old caste located at the rock, and there is a private beach downstairs (unfortunately the beach was not open all the day, probably because of some rennovations the owners made). Nice garden inside, very nice salons etc. at the ground floor. The appartment is an "open space" type, well equiped, but no A/C so keep it in mind if you are going to stay in the summer time. The terrace is very spacious and has a nice sea view. The only bad thing was mosquitos - they appeared suddenly on our last days.
Finally: the owner Lucio is very friendly and helpful!

Ruheoase im Trubel

  • 4 out of 5
Wir haben das Appartment über Ostern gemietet und hatten wundervolle Ferien. Das Castello liegt direkt an der Steilküste und hat einen großen gepflegten Garten mit kleinem Spielplatz und Pool. Morgens war Sonne auf der eigenen Terrasse und ab mittags am Strand oder auf der riesigen Gemeinschaftsterrasse am Meer. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten zu Fuß im Ort, der Bahnhof ist in wenigen Minuten erreichbar. Die Schlafzimmer sind nur durch Vorhänge vom Wohnraum getrennt- wer viel Privatsphäre braucht ist hier nicht gut aufgehoben. Der Vermieter war sehr nett, im Appartment ist alles was man benötigt. Die Lage von Vico equense ist sehr gut zum Erkunden der Region. Danke nochmal an Lucio!

Sorrento peninsula has 2 coasts: Amalfi coast and Sorrento Coast. This is one of the most beautiful area of Italy. Our castle with several nice and well furnished apartments is really the best to visit all this amazing area + Capri, Pompeii, Ercolano, Naples( Napoli, Neapel ) and his famous volcano Vesuvius. Don't miss this rare opportunity to stay inside a real wonderful castle: let me know all your questions and trust me. I had a lot of guests from all over the world so I'd like to offer you all you need if I can. A genuine taste of Italy is waiting for you.
