This house with its four rentable aparments is situated on the hillside 1 km from the main square of Sorrento. It is a quiet place with a nice garden surrounded by lemon trees. Relaxing atmosphere. The owners are friendly and helpful and picked us up at the train station upon arrival. The apartments are well equipped for cooking your own food when you get tired of the restaurants down town. We recommend this place for everyone who is looking for a quiet and affordable apartment for a holiday in Sorrento.

When I give a review of a place I have visited, I try to be as detached emotionally as I can, but remain factual.
Sometimes this is difficult as personalities are often part of the equation.
In the case of Pasquale and Rosa the owners of Csale Nunztiantina neither of them could be faulted for their warmth and welcome to their accommodation. Pasquale in particular was very helpful.
As we did not intend driving he kindly picked us up from the train station and took us back there when we were returning home. He also offered to take us to the supermarket for groceries if we wished, and was willing to give information on the local areas. All of this was much appreciated. The welcome and stay was very personal as both of them stayed on the premises and were to be seen most days in and around the garden. This was useful if we needed to ask any information. Pasquale has a very good command of English.
We in common with other visitors were introduced to the local farm where we could buy, mozzarella, wine , olive oil, eggs, etc.
On reflection also I feel the price of the accommodation for the area was very reasonable, and as it was easier for us to self cater, ( The walk at night to the centre put us off a bit ) we felt our money went a lot further than we thought it would.
The public transport is very cheap and good so that also kept costs down.
The accommodation is out with the centre of Sorrento. It is accessed after leaving the main road by a very narrow, (one small car width) cobbled and concreted road with high walls on both sides. The area is rural with a number of farms. The road can be fairly busy at times with scooters and cars running up and down to the dwellings in the hills. Most of the time they sound their horns as it is impossible to see round the bends. Most of the time scooters can pass pedestrians safely, although some to my mind drive too fast, but that is in common with the area in general.
If a car needs to pass, the car has to stop or the pedestrian has to find a small lay by/doorway or similar in order to let the car pass safely. Most of the time this is not a problem. The road is steep though and gets very steep on the last leg, this can be very tiring when the temperatures are high. We had unseasonably hot weather , 35 degrees in the last 2 weeks of June.
After negotiating the walk it was with a great sense of relief that we opened the gates into the garden. The garden is a little oasis of tranquillity after the noise of traffic and diesel fumed apocalyptic driving within the area of the main town. You do hear some scooter noise, horn blowing, occasional dog barking, and cocks crowing, but nothing obtrusive.
We enjoyed sitting in the garden on our return and I was able to indulge my passion for sketching. We did suffer from insect bites and put this down to the amount of vegetation and high temperatures.
We are fairly fit and in the 60 plus age group we managed the climb ok, easier of course going down the way, but we were deterred from going out in the evening as the thought of the climb back up tended to put us off. Saying that most of the time we were exploring the wider area anyway and were out from early morning so were pretty tired after a full day in the heat and were quite happy most times to sit and relax with a glass of wine.
I would say this place is not suitable for people of reduced mobility or for children.
For your information we timed ourselves, walking at a reasonable pace, to various points.
From the accommodation to the main road about 9-10 mins., from the accommodation to the nearest supermarket 14mins., to the train/ bus station about 17mins., to the main square 20 mins., to the ferry/port 25 mins. Much the same going back, up hill add a min or 2 to each timing. Depends on the heat , and how tired you are after a days exploring. It is down hill all the way to the ferry and consequently uphill all the way back.
We were able to catch a bus from the port up to the bus station and walk from there, saving at least half the journey on foot. Apparently there is a bus that goes past the end of the narrow road but we never found it , although we did see it passing a couple of times. The exact location and time table of this bus would be extremely useful.
I also feel it would be good if the Sorrento tourist board developed a regular hop on hop off shuttle bus service for these more out lying areas, there is certainly enough money pouring into the area from tourists, it would be nice to see some of it channelled for the tourists’ convenience. There is a bus up and down from the port at 1euro, but as far as I know it only takes you to the main square.
Because of the heat we missed the luxury of a pool. However a Swedish couple who had been before told us of a complex nearby where we could pay to go in and use the pool. This was called the VILLAGIO VERDE. Go down the hill to main road , turn left , cross to other side , climb the hill and take second right . It costs 16 Euro for 2 sunbeds and 2 towels for the day. There are toilets , showers and a bar serving lunches from 12.0am till 2.opm. freshly made food at reasonable prices. Drinks served all day.Small pool but extremely well run and clean. Great for a relaxing day and much cheaper than the beach. Beach costs around 32 Euro for similar and costs of meals and drinks is higher. Also lift to and from the beach is 1euro 80.
The accommodation at Casale Nunziantina is in 4 areas beneath the main house, the house was originally a family farm and the areas of the farm buildings are converted into holiday accommodation. Pasquale gave us a very informative history of it as a family home.
Edera and Giglio are probably the most private. Edera though is at the entrance gate , so everyone coming in passes this door . Giglio is on the farthest corner and most private. Rosa and Gardenia are both together in the middle. We were in Gardenia. I spent a long time researching for accommodation as I like outside space when the climate warrants it. Gardenia unfortunately probably had the least outside space. However this was not really a problem, as there was just enough room outside for a table and chairs and 2 deck chairs. There was also the shade of an umbrella. Certainly was lovely to come straight out and eat and relax outside, although we were aware of the tenants in Rosa doing the same, but not really a problem. I had been offered at the time of booking one week in Edera and 1 Gardenia, but I did not want the bother of moving. I also had secured an apartment on the sea front with a small balcony , but chose Nunziantina as it was half the price.
Our accommodation was simply furnished, and simply equipped. It consisted of a kitchen , as you went in the door with an additional table and a few kitchen chairs, gas hob, small electric oven/grill, sink , fridge , freezer, kettle for the top of the hob, kitchen cupboards with crockery and cutlery. My criticism would be that the cooking equipment was minimal. One quite large pot one small pot , one frying pan. There is no toaster or microwave. The accommodation was open plan with a folding room divider. The bed was in common over Europe 2 single beds pushed together, the bed was comfortable , clean sheets etc. are supplied at the end of the week if you are staying for more than one week. There was a wardrobe with a half hanging space, more suitable for men’s clothing, not enough clothes hangers either, there were 2 drawers one of which was used for the storage of additional bedclothes. In my opinion there was not enough storage space for clothing. Most of my clothes ended up draped over the folding screen, as they were too long to hang in the wardrobe. There was no mirror, sofa or easy chairs in this room although there was a mirror in the bathroom. We used kitchen chairs as bedside tables as basically what was provided was a painted log with a lamp on it , inadequate really. There was another bedroom in this apartment, but we did not have access to it as there were only 2 of us. We used our cases as additional storage of clothes. There was air con which was greatly appreciated and a very small flat screen tv, no English speaking channels, but that’s not why we go on hol anyway. The apartment was very clean and reasonably spacious.
We explored the area thoroughly, visiting Capri. It is worth taking the bus from Capri town to Anna Capri where it is much quieter with less tourists, lovely. Ravello is also well worth a visit for similar reasons. 2 beautiful villas and gardens to visit.
The Usicita Corsa ticket from the bus station costs 7.euro 40 and is a great buy. Organised bus tours can cost 70 Euros.The ticket covers you for 24 hours, you can hop on, hop off, visiting Positano and Amalfi , both lovely, both busy and both expensive, but must see. It is possible to get off the beaten track down through the medieval alley ways, try it there is always something interesting to see.
The same ticket covers you for Ravello but you need to change in Amalfi for Ravello. Make sure you get on the right side of the bus for the best views. As they allow standing in the buses the view of the coastline can be blocked if you are on the other side.
We also visited Naples twice, once by boat, once by train. No problem. Herculaneum and Pompeii are also easily accessible by the Circumvesuviana train. Go early to avoid the crowds, if you want a guide wait till you get inside Pompeii before booking one. We didn’t bother with a guide for Herculaneum. Herculaneum is a straight walk down from the station at Ercolano. If you are over 65 carry your passport as many museums are free, but you need to show identification.
Even although there were some minor negatives to our visit we thoroughly enjoyed everything we done and seen, I hope this review has been helpful to you

A nice retreat and a good base to explore the area. The owners did everything they possibly could to make our stay comfortable and relaxing.

Our bed was comfortable and the garden was a haven.

Will definitely go again, but maybe hire a scooter next time for ease of getting around!

Fantastic value.

We spent almost two weeks here, in the Giglio apartment. We loved it. It was calm and relaxing, we were able to cook all our meals, saving a bundle of money. It's about 10-15 minute walk to the station -- taking the via Marziale shortcut. Yes, it's up a hill (and on cobblestones so not a walk for fancy shoes) but we were visiting the Sorrentine peninsula precisely for the hiking, fresh air, and healthy exercise, so the walk up in the evening was an added bonus (the Casale is, by the way, on walking trail #64 in Tippetts). We didn't have a car with us -- just used the great SITA bus system. Pasquale and Rosa were terrific hosts. We had fresh lemonade everyday and lived on the eggs and fresh mozzarella from the farm 50 meters away. This is a great place for restoring your health and mind. It's probably not the place to be if you don't like a bit of the "rustic." We're counting the days until we can come back again!

We stayed at Casale Nunziatina in April for only a few days but loved it and can't wait to return. Pascale was very helpful and accommodating while we were making our trip arrangements. While the location is a small walk outside of the Sorrento centre (and up a bit of hill) we appreciated both the tranquility of the location, and that the walk was a good way to offset the heaps of gelato we ate. I'd highly recommend staying here, it's beautiful, clean, and excellent value for money.
