Despite the bad weather, in late March, we found the Le Terrazze to be a very well run residence/hotel.
Antonio and his staff and family were very welcoming and gave us good advice and service.
I am sure I did not choose the right type of room. I should have gone for the double room only rather than the two-room with kitchenette option. We found this one only offered the magnificent view from the terrace/balcony which would have been fine in good weather.
Abundant and appetising breakfast. Very nice cappucino made by Antonio himself.
Hairy bus ride but one gets used. Timetable is essential and local knowledge about ticket purchasing.
Went to St Agata and found a wonderful lady, the owner of a mini-market/deli in the town centre who offered to drive us back to the hotel as we didn't find a taxi.
Don Pedro, a nearby restaurant, is a must. Wonderful cuisine, excellent personalised service. Priced accordingly.
A1 ‘FIRST CLASS’ 5 Stars! These are the terms I would use to describe our holiday in Sorrento spent at La Terraze. Only a ten minute journey by bus to the centre of Sorrento. La Terraze is set high in the Sorrento Hills. We spent from the 1st August to the 10th August there and were blown away by the magnificent views from our terrace apartment. Our room had a shower, basin, toilet and a bidet; a small kitchen and eating area and a double bedroom……with AIR CONDITIONING. The bed linen and towels were changed EVERYDAY and the room was cleaned EVERYDAY. This was a pleasant surprise and made us feel really special. From our balcony we could see Sorrento town, Naples and Vesuvius. The breakfast was light; cereal, yogurts, bread, jams, croissants, fruit juice, tea/coffee which satisfied us until lunch time. The local bus ran to time taking us into town and taking us home. The taxi fare was expensive 27E from town to La Terraze. (we only caught the taxi once.) It is a good idea thought to get a taxi from the airport to La Terraze as this is stress free. (Cost around 100E) but well worth it. We were able to visit all the sights in and around Italy. The Amalfi Coast; Capri; Pompeii; Herculaneum and we even had a trip to Rome on our own by train for the day!! (not recommended for the faint hearted or if you have children). It was a 14 hour day but well worth it. Other times were spent lounging by the pool which was set in a sun trap on the lower terrace. All in all a FANTASTIC time was had at Le Terraze and we would recommend this to anyone going to Sorrento
Le Terrazze was a great place to stay. The manager of the hotel was wonderful, extremely helpful and pleasant. The views were magnificent. The convenience of the local bus service made it easy to get into the Town Centre and allowed us to enjoy scenery.
Hello Katia, Just thought I would send a short email to you top say thank you for your warm welcome and friendly help while we stayed with you this week. We have some lovely memories of our stay and really enjoyed watching the sunset over Capri from the view point at S Maria Annunciata (?) We hope you have a wonderful life with your new husband and that you always stay as lovely as you are today. Please say a big thank you to Antonio also, Kind regards, Nick Coleman and Lydia
