We have stayed at Villa Sofia with our 1 year old and while I was 7 months pregnant. It was the best choice ever. Staying outside in the shade of the patio of Villa Sofia with magnificent views over the bay of Naples, what more can you wish for. The pool was perfect as well as the rest of the residence and gardens, well maintained and very nice people. The appartment was clean and cosey and we have been very happy with the airconditionings that were there. I have recommended this place to everybody I know who is interested in staying in this area and myself would not hesitate a minute to go back there again. Definitely hope we will in the near future!

We did greatly appreciate our stay in Villa Sofia. The villa is a charming and quiet place and the swimming pool is very useful to rest and relax after visiting the surroundings, especially with children.
Salvatore [the caretaker] is welcoming, efficient and has very good advices about restaurants. Special thanks to Nino that cares very good the swimming pool and is a very nice person, our son Julien did very appreciate his playing with him.
The villa conforms to the presentation on Internet, the proceeding of the payment is correctly respected. The agents have been efficient for special requests (baby bed, baby chair).
The kitchen is not really at the top, it should be renovated.
The terrace is not secured for little children that could fall down.
