Our family of six (two adults, four children age 8 to 16) loved our stay at Casa Rosa. What a beautiful place! The kids spent endless hours in the pool and playing hide and seek in the house and gardens (lots of nooks to hide in) and in fact we only ventured out once to see Pompeii and Vesuvius because well, you just have to.
Nothing was too much trouble for Guiseppe who was a wonderful host and helped us out when our car broke down on the first day. The villa was very well resourced with everything you could need, and plenty of supermarkets and bakeries were close by (not to mention Guiseppe's delicious croissant delivery!).
It is a little out in the countryside so not for people who want to be 500m from bars and nightlife and you do need a car. But we loved the isolation and the fact there were no TVs in the rooms! Would highly recommend it to families especially who want to switch off and disconnect for a few days and play Uno instead.
Geraldo and his wife are a very sweet couple who welcome strong family values and have a desire to ensure their guests make the most of their stay. They live on the upper floor of the appartment and provide that additional feeling of security when we went out on adventures. The roomy appartment has a good layout for large family sharing but also enabling privacy when required. The aircon was good in one of the bedrooms and the other was ok, in the high temperatures, it can get rather warm inside, something we didnt mind. The bathroom and kitchen are as functional as needed, and there's an additional outdoor shower in the rear private garden too. Also in the garden are some tortoises and a terrapin, all self contained and happy in the outdoors. There's a t.v. and lots of books for local interests, the amalfi coast is only a few minutes drive away.
Gerardo is very sweet and had some local bread and amazing local mozzarella ready for our arrival. We gave him our flight details so he could be ready for us, which he was, how wonderful! Even thought we didnt arrive until 21.30, Gerardo was very welcoming and accommodating, and proceeded to show us around the appartment giving us training on the air con, kitchen, shower, tv...etc.
His poor wife seemed to know how chatty Gerardo is and tried to say goodnight, but Gerardo was eager to please us and continued to explain various things within the apartment.
Gerardo speaks Italian or French, no English. This made communications both exciting and challenging but with various combinations of miming, talking slowly, charades, and even drawing! Gerardo brought his daughter along the next day to help us communicate. Thank you Benedetta!
Following a wondeful week in the sun, this is one place where we would happily return for more italian sunshine.
A big, warm, and heartfelt thank you to Gerardo and his family, you made our Italian holiday very special!
