What Past Guests Are Saying
Our family of four stayed here for five days in april. The villa is all on a single level and is built to a high standard (e.g. it has an impressive multi-room audio and very good heating systems). Both bedrooms are spacious and the inclusion of a bathroom and separate shower room avoids those family squabbles about who's next for a shower. The kitchen area is well equipped if slightly small in relation to the large villa. Both bedrooms open out onto a small terrace surrounded by a well-maintained and private garden area. The weather in april was a bit chilly, but nevertheless the garden is sheltered and sunny. There is garden dining furniture and a lounger provided. To the front of the house, there is a small balcony with breathtaking views over Sorrento and across the Bay of Naples to Vesuvius. Mario and Luigi (honestly) were both very helpful, once we'd managed to meet up in Sant'Agata. The Villa is very quietly located, but you do need to be a very confident driver if you're to get your car to the parking space provided - several challenging switch-backs on the track serving the Villa and a number of other homes). Facilities are a short drive away in Sant'Agata which has a small supermarket and the customary butcher, greengrocer and a great bakery.
All in all a great stay.

The villa was part of a family holding among olive groves, and we liked the farm feel with local men picking olives during our stay. The home was roomy for two adults. The location was quiet, views great, and the villa just as expected from the website, apart from that it's not freestanding. It is attached to other homes owned by the same family, and has a workroom for the olives underrneath. The roof was being tiled while we were there, seemingly to make a terrace.
Public transport was easy. A bus to Sorrento leaves from a roadway about 200 m away down a steep hill. There is also a marked pathway to Sorrento from the bus stop. The path is steep but only about a kilometer long. There is a supermarket near the bus stop. We were glad that we booked transfers through Feeling Italy, the management company. Villa Priora might be hard to find otherwise, and only tiny cars can drive the laneway to Villa Priora.
Il Borgo restaurant is within walking distance and has good food at good prices.
One suggestion for the property: The mattresses on the single beds in the second bedroom could be more comfortable for an adult (the beds were full-size, not narrow like some single beds in Italy).
Four tips for guests: 1. take your own bottle opener 2. Sunday night buses leave Sorrento from a different location because of the Sunday evening passegiata in the cental Piazza, 3. avoid taking a taxi home: a trip of about 3km costs 45 euros, and our driver was a madman, and 4. besides the little local bus, there is a Sita bus service stopping near Il Borgo restaurant on the way into Sorrento and near the Priora turnoff on the way from Sorrento. The Sita bus timetable is in the most common Sorrento tourist maps.
We really enjoyed our week at Villa Priora.

Stunning view, good facilities and a good base for exploring the
Warm welcome from the owner and his daughter. Well equipped, clean and tidy villa on a very secluded, quiet road among the lemon groves. The fact that it is secluded means you really have to travel into Sorrento for any choice of cafes, restaurants etc, although the little local supermarket in Priora was surprisingly good. The view from the villa is stunning - better even than the picture on the site - onto Sorrento, the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius beyond. We used the villa as a base to explore Naples, Pompeii etc on the one side and the amalfi Coast the other way. We had a great time.
Two minor reservations. The road up to the house is extremely narrow and steep and you need an advanced (Italian) driving certificate to manage it with any confidence. Our solution was to leave the car at the foot of the steepest, narrowest part, which was fine but meant a steep walk up to the villa. The other thing is that the kitchen was completely bare of any of the everyday basics (i.e. salt, pepper, oil, sugar, washing up liquid etc) which meant we had to buy the lot in for just a week's holiday. I presume this is to encourage visitors to buy the 'welcome pack', but it seemed a bit mean to provide nothing at all.
