“Our favorite spot in Italy!”
Reviewed 18 April 2012

Five years ago while staying in Sorrento we had a delicious lunch at Fattoria Teranova and we decided then that on our next trip (our fourth) to Italy we would stay at the farm. Our three day stay was the highlight of our vacation.

The Ruoppo family, Luigi, Francesca and Roberto are so passionate about everything they offer at their agritourismo. The location is superb, the accomodation comfortable, service is excellent and the food 'to die for'. We would suggest their half-board booking for two reasons: you will not get a better meal in Italy and after dinner and wine in Sorrento it would be a most challenging drive back (nighttime, hills, switchbacks etc) to the farm.

Francesca operates a hands-on cooking school - I learned to make a complete dinner which my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed. I am now going to make the entire meal for my family here in Canada! She also offers a Pizza School for groups - they learn to make the pizza and then eat it!

Best of all is that the Fattoria Teranova is a real working farm with resident dogs and chickens and other animals. The produce you eat at lunch and dinner will have been picked that day.They also make products that you can buy at the farm or buy at their shop just off the main square in Sorrento.

We walked to St. Agata, about 2km, where we caught the bus to Sorrento and from there trains and busses are available to all the major tourist attractions.

And speaking of tourists - we were at the farm just before Easter when hordes of tourists were descending on Sorrento - the farm was a quiet, peaceful haven high above the Mediterranean away from the crowds!

As we were arriving at night we asked for help booking a driver to pick us up at Naples Airport and the farm booked the wonderful, young and enthusiastic Carlo - he is not only an excellent driver but also very amusing.

Created a perfect wedding in every detail from across the sea for my daughter. Rozella went out of her way to make everting perfect for the guests, and the entire wedding party. Maybe we will meet there for an anniversary.

thank you

This past March 2012 my family and friends traveled to Sant'Agata and I got married at Fattoria Terranova. It was by far the best wedding and vacation experience we have ever had. The wedding was planned amazingly by the staff at Fattoria Terranova. They took care of every little detail perfectly and were extremely warm and welcoming. The food was absolutely incredible and overall it was all very affordable. Many of our guests stayed at the farm as well and they had a great experience with that as well. The town of Sant'Agata was one of the more beautiful places I have ever been and I would love to return there someday. I highly recommend Fattoria Terranova to all. Best place and people ever!

Room Tip: They are all good in my book!

My wife and I spent 3 nights in September. The rooms consisted of several smaller out buildings with small apartments that are pretty basic. On our last night there, the water was turned off and the TV did not work at all . The restaurant was good. We got the Half Board so meals were included with the room. Breakfast was pastry and bread with coffee.
Dinner was whatever they decided you would get that day. Which is different for each table. One night we were served pasta and the table next to us were served steak. On the last night we were offered the meat dishes. Overall the food was good, but at a 40 euro per day cost (wine and water additional), I would choose to eat at different places where you can choose what to eat..
A car or scooter is a must. This is too far from the road where the buses run and a taxi is expensive.
On checkout, the price of the room was higher that I was quoted, and they charged me for a bottle of wine that was supposed to be complimentary. Be aware of what the half board includes. Water, wine and drinks are additional.

All in all, we enjoyed the stay, but I would I would stay elsewhere next trip.

FT is a working farm and churns out one of the freshest dinners we've had in Italy. My wife and I weren't too hungry so we asked them if we could share a dinner plate - they readily agreed and then went of their way to make us a sampler pasta and appetizer plate to ensure we got to taste the different foods on offer. The location is perfect too..high on the hill overlooking the Med. Got to watch a gnocchi and Mozarella making session the next morning too.

The rooms are a bit dated, but nothing to complain about. All in all a great stay and the owner's go out of their way to make sure you are accommodated.

This place is well worth the extra time it takes to find it (we took our own car - not for the faint hearted). Stunning views over the Amalfi coast a beautiful, tranquil, place - excellent restaurant and the apartment was clean and tidy with a wonderful balcony and views. Would thoroughly recommend, we will be back!

We (2 adults + 2 children) highly appreciated our 4 day stay at Fattoria Terranova. Good & rich breakfeast and excellent dinner (halfboard option) with antipasti, primo, secundo, desserto, good housewine, .... all with authentic italian homemade food, charming italian atmosphere and (real) flowers everywhere. The quanities for dinner are enormous, I would even say too much. The motto from the hotel is "slow food", ie if you take all the courses during dinner you may stay 2 hours at table which was not a problem for us coming from France and being used to that.
We booked two standard rooms which were simple but OK, with seperate bathroom including WC. The rooms were clean and tidied up every day. The hotel is well located to discover Amalfi Coast, Capri, ... (dont trust your GPS when first approaching the hotel coming from Napoli; first go to Sant Agata and then follow the signs of the hotel)
