Three (or Four) Bedroom Split level Apartment Sorrento Coast
Giuditta 2 is a pretty apartment part of a little cluster of cottages situated in a gorgeous position on the Sorrento coast overlooking the bay of Naples. It opens onto a courtyard terrace, with built in barbecue/pizza oven, perfect for dining al fresco, and has a further terrace on the roof with stunning sea views. Close by in the garden is a pretty swimming pool also enjoying the beautiful panorama.
Giuditta 2 is a split level apartment with its entrance via a little courtyard which opens directly into the ground floor living area which consists of a kitchen corner and dining table and chairs. Also on the ground floor are two pretty bedrooms (one with double bed , one with twin beds) and a shower room. A third bedroom, and another shower room are situated on the level above reached via a few steps. Above the living area a spiral stair case leads to a gallery floor where there are two single beds which can accommodate two extra persons on request. The apartment has an area for dining al fresco with table and chairs on the courtyard terrace, where there is also a built in wood burning pizza oven/ barbecue for guests use. External steps at the side of the apartment lead to a roof terrace which enjoys a beautiful view of the sea and the islands of Capri and Ischia.
Close by in a lovely position is a pretty swimming pool (7.5m x 3.5m) built cleverly into the hillside and enjoying an amazing panorama over the bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. The pool is shared only by another two apartments on the property (Giuditta 1 and 3) which are also rented. All the cottages taken together can accommodate up to 16 persons therefore are perfect for larger parties seeking private accommodation. The cottages all have their own terrace areas, and are nicely furnished and equipped with today's modern comforts of air conditioning/heating, hairdryers in the bathrooms and have the use of a communal washing machine, the swimming pool and parking at the property.
It is an excellent base for exploring the area. The nearest town, Sant'Agata, is just 1.5km away and has a selection of shops, famous restaurants and local bus connections. Cosmopolitan Sorrento with its maze of characteristic streets lined with shops and pavement cafes is only 11 km away and a joy to explore. This wonderful area inspired writers and composers such as Goethe and Wagner, who were awed with its beauty. The picturesque towns of Positano and Amalfi are less than half an hour's drive or can be reached by local bus and there are ferry services from both to the islands of Capri and Ischia. Further afield are the archeological sites of Pompeii and Ercolano, at the feet of the volcano Vesuvius.
Note: The property is reached by an access road approximately 1.70m wide. Therefore suitable for small/medium sized cars only.

Left on 08/09/2011 for a stay in June 2011 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Aug 9, 2011Stayed Jun 2011
The agent was very helpful and friendly throughout our stay. The property has fantastic views and we had a great time but the reasons I have not rated it higher are:
1. I asked twice before booking if the property was child friendly. You confirmed it was on both occasions, but on arrival I could see it wasn't due to the amount of steps, lack of stair gates, the sheer drop down to the property beneath us, the pool not being enclosed, and the steps up to the roof terrace without a gate. We have 2 toddlers so whilst this would suit someone with older children, I think you need to be accurate in saying it is not child friendly for smaller children under the age of 7. There is a big difference between children being allowed to stay (which I think is what you meant) and the property being child friendly.
2. The inside of the property smelt of damp and the fixtures and fittings were rather dated. Therefore I think it was a bit overpriced and I felt we paid for the view.
3. The only way for a car to access the property was down some extremely narrow roads which were pretty unsuitable for the small SUV type car we were driving. Your write up about the property should advise guest only to bring small cars as we sustained damage to ours on the narrow roads which aren't really suitable for cars wider than a VW Golf at the most.
Overall we had a great stay so I didn't complain at the time, but I would think twice about booking with you again due to the lack of proper descriptions about the property. it is good to get this opportunity to give you this feedback anyway. Read more
Thank you for your comments and observations. In reply we have checked all of our correspondance regarding your booking and cannot see any mention nor can we recall any specific queries prior to booking regarding toddler suitability. Our descriptions are very clear and detailed and we do clearly specify that there are steps in the apartment itself, as well as a spiral staircase to the upper floor and steps to the roof terrace, all of which are visible in the photos too. We also state that the pool is built into the cliffside and it is clear from the photos what position it is in and that it is open not gated. Having with toddlers we know means that you can't take your eyes off them for a minute, that is always the case not only when travelling. With regards to the narrowness of the road. We very specifically note this in our description, including the width of the driveway 1.70m and clearly say it is suitable for smal to medium cars only. We inspect all of our properties and the decriptions always also include anything that is unusual or we think people should know about even if this means pointing out negative aspects. We want our clients to choose the correct property for their needs, and are happy to advise when asked, rest assured we always give out correct and thorough information. On the basis of which you then choose, Ultimately though its your choice and you form your own opinions on suitability. We appeciate its not easy to absorb all the information on the descriptions, but if you read it again you will see that most of the points you have raised are all clearly stated there. Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback.
