Lovely Place

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Aug 2, 2018via mobile
We visited this lovely bed and breakfast for just one night on our way driving down the southern coast.

It's a very nicely and tastefully furnished house. The aesthetics are very beachy and traditional yet modern and stylish.

The whole place has this bright beach house feel.

The rooms are spacious and there are huge windows in all the rooms and the common area. If you sit in bed and look out it feels like you are sitting in the middle of the sea!

The bathrooms are nice and clean but not as stylish as the rooms.

We had taken two rooms on the first floor and they had this lovely common area in between with a kitchenette. That was really nice. Just a note though that one of the rooms the really nice one with the library of books does not have the bathroom inside it it is across from the common area (private for the room just not in there)

It's ok if you are a family sharing the space however if you are sharing with strangers it could be an inconvenience.

The location of this place is amazing. Literally across the street from the sea and a walking promenade. There is parking along the street but you have to make sure you pay at the meter.

Booking was very smooth and the person in charge was quick and efficient.

One thing about this place that I didn't really like was the breakfast. It was packaged stale food that we actually skipped as it didn't look appetising at all. Another thing is that there was nobody really there to welcome us in and answer any questions. One person just opened the door for us have us the keys and took payment and we barely saw her again.

Over all the design and location and aesthetics are just gorgeous in this place. However the lack of a proper breakfast and friendly staff will make me give it a 4 instead of 5.

The B&B La Bella Vie is located in the centre of Santa Maria di Castellabate. It has a fantastic interior design, a perfect sea view, is also located five metres from the beach, had a very comfortable bed and is very clean. I wholly recommend staying here.

Excellent location overlooking rocky shore but only a few yards from clean sandy beach with clear water, safe for swimming. Breakfast ( coffee and croissant) served next door in relaxed cafe/bar with terrace. Large ensuite room on top floor was spotless but had no windows, which was a great pity as view would have been stunning. (Skylights) No air conditioning on top floor and free-standing fans did not quite hit the spot! Would recommend, but try for room on first floor with balcony and air conditioning.

We stayed at belle vie during the Easter holiday. Beautiful place with an amazing sea view and balcony. Clean and tidy with great facilities including a jacuzzi style bath and em suite. Modern kitchen within the apartment and TV. Maid service everyday. Excellent and very welcoming host, really took care of us and spoke good English. This place is right on the sea front and close to the local amenities in town. I would highly recommend this place! :) 10/10!

The hotel is gorgeous with beautiful sea view rooms. The owners are fantastic wonderful people. Perfect place in a perfect location. Paradise. There is a bar right next door that serves from breakfast to cocktails! I will definitely stay here again. And again. And again.

Room tip: All the rooms are amazing, it won't matter which you choose.
