You will enjoy stopping for a second to watch the sunset on this large terrace: you might even catch some magical moments, such as when the sky turns from light blue to deep and intense hue of the same color and the stone façade of the house shines under the razing golden-light beams of the sun. At the same time the orange circle of the sun in the horizon seems to plunge into the sea in a triumph of colorful reflexes in orange, red, and violet…And when late night falls, turn off all the outside lights of the house for a second and stop to enjoy the Milky Way and the constellations of Ursa Major and Cassiopea, which slowly run across the sky as hours go by …

“Villa Trotta has a way of making you feel at home.”
Sloping hills, endless olive fields, an enchanting terrace where you can sit and enjoy spectacular views, incredible sunsets and star studded night skies. Villa Trotta is a well maintained property, with accomodations for a large family or group of friends. I particulary enjoyed its homey kitchen and its abundant supply of water and excellent water pressure. If you are renting a villa to spend some quality time with family and/or friends, this is the place for you.

“A great place to experience part of the real Italy”
We stayed in august and were made very welcome by all the people we met. The villa has a real sense of character and is set in some lovely grounds.
I particulary liked going shopping into the village every morning to buy fresh bread and other essential supplies for a big family!
It helps if you can speak some Italian but if not, you will stil be made to feel very welcome.
I can recommmend Villa Trotta to anyone who likes to be more independant.
When I tell people about my week at Villa Trotta, I start by saying that when I got back to my US home, my own bed felt strange! That's how comfortable I felt at Villa Trotta. If you want to immerse yourself in Italian life, this is the place to be. Perdifumo was a delightful little village. You definitely need your Italian dictionary if you are Italian challenged, but the people are patient, kind and helpful. A car is a must. Day trips are an adventure. We traveled to Castellabata (several times), Amalfi, and Pompeii and never felt rushed. Home each night to enjoy the fabulous view all the way to the ocean and starry skies from the charming brick patio. If you are looking for a country vacation (leave the evening attire home) and want to feel like you've really "lived" Italy, Villa Trotta is the place for you.
We are headed back to Italy this August for another Summer In Italy Vacation. They're a great group of people who really make customer satisfaction their number one priority.
