Feedback and Testimonials
Casa Scimone was the perfect holiday home for our family of 7. This family
owned property is very well equipped, has a library of books for the
avid reader, two fantastic kitchens suitable for the serious cook and is
very spacious. Breathtaking views and a short walk to the beautiful
village of Taormina, no need for a car. The cleaning staff were very
friendly and discrete. Micaela the host was extremely helpful, her
notes and tips on the local restaurants, tours and fresh produce in
addition to her prompt replies to any of our questions made our holiday
just perfect. We will definitely be back to holiday again at Casa
Scimone. Thank you my travel agent for being so personable to deal with and
presenting this property so truthfully on the website.
Thanks to the Key-holder for their excellent hosting and patience as we needed some time to get out from Naples.
Elisa location and interior as expected. Everything was pretty good and matched the descriptions and pictures.
We decided on Praiano to be outside of the touristic centers, which was a good choice.
Amalfi itself is a beautiful spot. We spent a nice week there.

We were spending several weeks in Italy, and wanted to take a short side trip to Florence. The Mercato di San Lorenzo apartment was perfect for us. It is within easy walking distance from train station and an easy walk to all of the sights of Florence. The apartment, itself was absolutely lovely. It had everything that we needed. House Manager met us and explained everything. He pointed out some of the best places to eat in Florence and the major sightseeing destinations...the apartment is across the street from the Central Mercato and the Florence leather vendors. All in all, the apartment was exactly what we were looking for. Thank-you for everything
We are so happy we found Villa Costanza to host our intimate destination wedding. This was the best week of our lives.
Owners and their family went above and beyond for both our wedding and our stay. Everything surpassed our expectations. Every detail was absolutely perfect. The villa and the rooms are gorgeous and the views are breathtaking. The food prepared for us daily was incredibly delicious, especially the homemade pizza. The staff were very warm and friendly and made us feel at home. All the amenities the villa has to offer made it the perfect place to unwind and relax. The preparation for our wedding day went so smoothly. They always made sure we were happy with every decision and we could not be happier with how the day turned out. There was nothing we had to worry about, they took care of it all. The flowers, the food, the music and the friendly staff made this a day that will stand out in our memories for the rest of our lives. We could not have asked for anything more. Our only regret is we forgot to take our wedding cake when we left. It was the most delicious cake we've ever had! We will definitely be returning to Villa Costanza.

We have vacationed in the Amalfi Coast a couple of times, including for our honeymoon. For our most recent trip we stayed in Positano at the villa, Casalbivio. This villa is the most ideal vacation home and the best we have rented. The bedrooms are on separate floors which gives great privacy. Each room in the home has outstanding blue sea views. The views are so incredible that it's truly hard to describe in words. The terraces are large and provide great outdoor space for dining and sun tanning. Plus, Casalbivio has the perfect location in the heart of Positano, right in front of the bus stop and just a few minutes scenic walk to the beach. The best part of Casalbivio is the wonderful owners. Owner's daughte went above and beyond to make our stay lovely. My husband got very sick on our trip and I messaged her to ask how we can get to a hospital. She said, "I'm on my way". She was there in no time, and brought three Italian Red Cross Emergency Medics. What a blessing she was, and one of the most beautiful people, inside and out, that we've ever met. Actually, all of the people of Positano were helpful, kind, joyful and pleasant. What people! What a town! What a villa!

It is hard to believe that our 5 weeks in this amazing home has come to an end.
From the day we just drove through olive grave and saw the villa that the owners insisted was our home, to sharing a Prosecco with them on our last night it has been a truly wonderful experience. They are both incredibly warm and loving hosts and made all our group feel at home.
Our twins one year old probably will only remember this trip form pictures but they will know how much joy the owner took in having them here and watching them grow.
They gave us also great advice about things to do, places to see and so many wonderful things to eat.
When we planned this trip we both dreamed of finding a beautiful villa, with views that took our breath away every morning with a couple who took care of us like family and become our friends. The owners exceeded every dream we ever had.
Thank you so much. We will definitely be back!!

We all enjoyed the beauty of the villa, its quiteness of the countryside the outdoor eating areas .....
Thank you for your email.
We had a fabulous time in Praiano - it was so lovely to go back to Rosa dei Venti.
Like last time the property was spotlessly clean and well equipped and the view from the cottage was just wonderful. We enjoyed watching the sun go down over Capri from the terrace and the little garden which was full of flowers and beautifully kept.
Carolina is a very generous host. She is always on hand to help if needed and left a bowl of beautiful tomatoes and fresh basil from her garden.
I would recommend some new pillows for the bedroom for the next season but aside from that it is a really fabulous place to stay and we would love to return someday.
Rosa dei Venti is ideally placed for walking, with the path up to the Convento San Domenico and Sentiero degli Dei just at the end of the road and it is a steep but quick walk down the steps to the high street. The streets are lined with ceramic plaques and sculptures through the NaturArte Project and there always something to look at!
We appreciated how easy it was to book through Ville in Italia and hope to visit Italy again soon
With very best wishes

What a wonderful place! We came here to relax; it is the perfect place. Still very close to Fano Center.
You ask yourself how the people may have lived when this house was just built. They sure picked a nice spot to build it. We felt very welcome! The warmth of the sun was only outpaced by the warmth of Miriana and her devoted cooking.
Thanks for having us here!
just wanted to let you know that our family Holiday at Villa Corte Capitani was great. The house is something very special, it has a lot of atmosphere and we really loved it! Pool and garden were also wonderful with an amazing view over the lake.
And also the owner was very hospitable and we felt all around good and welcome and perfectly looked after!
Have a good day!
We had such a wonderful time in Positano. Villa La Pistrice is the perfect place to stay because of its location.
The villa is located next to the bus stop...we would walk down to the beach and shopping area and take the bus back. There is also a wonderful little restaurant situated at the entrance to the villa.
The Villa itself is beautiful. Gorgeous views from the terraces. Courtyard is peaceful and there are tables outside if you decide to dine in. Bedrooms are nice and spacious and the kitchen is fully equipped. I hope to return some day!
Thank you also for being there and answering any questions I had. You made it easy for me to put this trip together. We all had a wonderful time!
There were many good things about Villa Marika.
First, the view from the terrace is indeed spectacular: one of the best I can remember. We much enjoyed breakfast on the terrace. The location is excellent, close to the cable-car and mini-markets. The key holder could not have been more charming and welcoming.
The flat has its charms – spacious and air-conditioned (and its convenient location) The plumbing and showers were first-rate and constant hot water much appreciated. And I repeat, the key-holder lady was always warm and helpful..

The villa is in a secluded location with two unspoiled towns within a few kilometres. The accommodation is very generously proportioned and you have everything you need in the family house. For recreation there is a beautiful pool and terrace. If you need to get out of the sun, there is table tennis and football and inside a pool table. The mature gardens and shaded terraces offer you places to eat and relax in the shade. We had a great holiday and appreciated the help and advice the owners gave.
There is much to see in the area – Viterbo, Lake Bolsena, Orvieto, Bagnoregio / Civita and many more. All have the architecture and history of the better known sights of Tuscany and Umbria but without the crowds and commercialisation. If you have not tried the Lazio region, this is an ideal villa to explore from (David)
In regards to the property, it did meet our expectations in terms of facilities and location.
The House was very spacious and so it suit us. Access to the property by the owner was not a problem for us.
A special thanks to Salvatore who was very welcoming and gifted us with a bottle of Limoncello and fresh tomatoes from the garden.. and despite his broken English and my broken Italian we did manage to communicate well (am Portuguese, so we managed OK).
It was my first time in Sorrento and enjoyed exploring the area and we visited Massa Lubrense, Sorrento town, Praiano, Positano, Vesuvio and Pompei and Ravello. We also like walking so the tip of the Peninsula around Nerano was very interesting along the coast. We had lovely food and lucky to have Villa Caprile Restaurant within walking distance.
I have booked with VilleinItalia a couple of times and it was always good. Hope my feedback helps
Best wishes for the New Year 2017.
Nous avons passé une très agréable séjour à la Villa Arizza.
La maison est trés agréable à vivre avec sa piscine au milieu de la nature. Elle est aussi très bien située et permet de visiter toute la Sicile du Sud (Ragusa, Noto, Syracuse...) aussi que de profiter de très jolies plages de sable fin, comme celle de Sampieri.
Nous avons aussi été très bien accueillis par le propriétaire qui sait nous faire partager l'amour de son pays.
Nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir.
Un grande merci à vous
