Rigoletto’ is the first of seven apartments within La Capanelle, an elegant development on the picturesque hills overlooking the Gulf of Naples and the Gulf of Salerno.
On arrival, you will find your parking area, reserved exclusively for guests and protected by an electric gate. Before you, the green slopes of the Mediterranean maquis stretch in all directions, alongside the organic lemon and olive groves tended to by the owners. Le Capannelle sits high on one of the natural terraces typical of the Amalfi Coast, guaranteeing wonderful views.
The well-kept shared gardens boast a wonderful 10m x 5m swimming pool (open from 15th May to 15th October), surrounded by a solarium terrace. Beautiful potted plants rest alongside ample sun loungers and parasols, giving the ideal place to soak up the sunshine, whilst enjoying the panoramic views from the Amalfi Coast to the Gulf of Salerno. On an adjacent raised terrace, you can relax on the comfortable wicker sofas beneath the shade of a pergola, whilst savouring the unforgettable sunsets over the blue seas of the Bay of Nerano. On hot summer days, the small wood and olive grove offer an ideal retreat when you wish to cool down.
Le Capannelle is within easy walking distance of good restaurants and grocery stores in the charming town of Sant'Agata sui Due Golfi. From there it is a short drive, or bus ride, to the many attractions of Sorrento, and beyond on the Amalfi Coast.
‘Rigoletto’ is a delightful apartment for two on the ground floor. It measures around 30 m2 and consists of a sitting room with kitchenette, leading to a double bedroom. In addition to the shared pool, terrace and gardens, ‘Rigoletto’ also benefits from a private patio with table and chairs, accessed via French doors from the living area, perfect for enjoying breakfast or a quiet drink.
The apartment has both air conditioning and heating throughout, to ensure your comfort whatever the time of year. There is an internet WiFi connection.
In the living area, there is a sofa and satellite television. The modern kitchenette is well-equipped with a dishwasher, four electric rings, an oven, a fridge-freezer, microwave, toaster and Italian coffee maker.
The bedroom is simply and tastefully furnished, with a double bed. From the bedroom, there is direct access to the bathroom, with washbasin, toilet, bidet, hairdryer and a spacious enclosed shower.
All guests are welcome to use the communal laundry room on the first floor, where you will find two washing machines, iron and ironing board.

The apartment was a very basic, very small basement apartment which always felt damp and smelt damp as well. The paint was starting toe peel from the bedroom walls and even when all the windows and outside doors were open the apartment appeared dark and dingy. The apartment offered no views and also no privacy when sitting outside on the concrete area. The living room had only one place for one person to sit and the television was mounted to the bedroom wall which incidentally did not work.

Leaving aside the group of loud americans that took over the site half way through our stay - we had a fab time.
The location is on a ridge in the outskirts of Saint agata with views to Bay of Naples right and Bay of amalfi left. The town is small and characterful, a real town and not overrun with tourist facilities. Local shops are fine and if you take the trouble to speak some Italian they will listen and politely correct! Local eatery 'Mimi' is worth a visit but the real head turner is the Don alfonso 2* Michelin Restaurant, which if you can justify it is well worth it. On the coast Marina del Cantone is a must see with good food. Lots of walks locally and along the coast.
The service from the company was very good, organising us a day trip in a boat along the amalfi coast. Well worth doing, although avoid the 'Emerald Cave'. No comparison to UK caves! Spend the time/money in amalfi or Positano. Pompeii is an hour away by car and Heraklion another 15-20 mins.
The facilities on site are simple and adequate for doing light meals and snacks, although a proper kettle would be nice. The unit is the smallest on site with a single room for kitchen and dining with patio doors onto a covered large patio area, a large bedroom with en-suite shower room and single small window. Using the shower and poor air ciculation can mean condensation but opening windows lets in the midges and horse flies which can be a real nuisance! Strangely the TV is mounted on a wall bracket high in the bedroom, which means tall people need to watch their heads. Watching TV meant sitting upright in bed. We would have prefered watching in the living area! Also unfortunately the Satellite TV facility wasnt working in our room throughout our stay.
We would like to go back but would try another unit. The swimming pool is nice but unheated and the roof patio is lovely for evening drinks to enjoy the glorious sunsets. Very romantic and we will go back - but not when there are block bookings!

Le Capernelle is a beautiful house and garden with stunning views of the sea and surrounding mountains and village. It is completely quiet and ideal for total relaxation. The village is a five minute walk. Here there are many restaurants, cafes and bars and all of the locals are extremely friendly and welcoming. There is a very laid back and relaxed feeling in St agata. The situation of the house is perfect because it feels very remote but you can reach the beach and nearby towns and villages very easily by bus. It really is a perfect holiday destination and somewhere I will return hopefully many times.
