"...appena tornate da una vacanza brevissima a Sorrento! Che dire...un posto meraviglioso e soprattutto la vista dalla terrazza del monolocale ci ha lasciate senza fiato! Anche se non siamo state nella struttura di Villa Pane abbiamo potuto godere della ospitalità, cordialità e discrezione di Annamaria e del suo staff! Sono persone molto disponibili che riescono a creare un\'atmosfera estremamente rilassata tra gli ospiti come durante la cena di ferragosto...era come stare tra amici!"

"We were spending couple of days in Sorrento in the end of June with my husbands family (parents, siblings and couple of young children - 8 adults and 2 kids). We really enjoyed our days in Villa Pane, which is in very peaceful and beautiful place and most of all - the host of the small Relais is so helpful and friendly and a masterchef! Anna Marie (host) and her family run the hotel so it feels like you are at home. When we asked her to prepare us some food for dinner, she made us eight-course meal, which was perfect! We ate among other things caprese, mussels, fish with a hint of peperoncino and at the end very delicious lemon cake. She prepared us courses from those ingredients she had bought in the morning from fishers/market sellers... certainly fresh!) Wine was also amazing (Greco di tufo). We asked about the wine and when we were leaving there were one box of this ideal white wine waiting for us to take with us - Anna Maries son San Luigi managed to get it to us from his friend, who produces this wine (you can't buy from shops). We ate there also next evening, cause we realised you can't get any better food from the town. And it was easy to put to sleep the kids and eat there in a lovely terrace were you can smell the lemons and basil they grow by themselves (you could hear to the terrace if children cry - balkony of that room was straight above terrace). And food was delicious again..... And breakfast was also good enough with croissants, bread, cheese, ham, jam, fruits, juice, coffee, cerials,..... Rooms were very cosy and clean. There were even an refrigerator. Bathrooms were very well equipped and clean (almost brand news). Some of the rooms have a great view to the sea. You can even shower and see the sea same time :-) There are about 10 rooms. Size of balconies vary - some rooms have only a french balcony and couple of rooms have so big balconies that there were one or two sunbeds! Upstair-rooms seemed to be little better than those which were in the lover level. But overall nice rooms. Hotel is surrounded by a lovely garden with lemon trees and herbs and flowers. There is also a small pool-area (it is a huge tub) with couple of sunbeds and tables and chairs. From Sorrento city there is about 2 to 3 km to the relais. Cause the end of the road is so steep and narrow, they have a parking space where you can leave your car and they come and pick you up and the other way round (you just call them). Or if you have a small car and you are a brave driver (as my husband with our Fiat500), you can drive straight there (as all the locals do) - there is also a parking space in a garden. They have also a parking space near the center of Sorrento, where you can leave your car while shopping/sightseeing/dining. We even left our car there when we were staying in Capri for couple of days after Sorrento. So I really can say we liked Villa Pane! I don't like hustle and bustle places with too many tourists - like Sorrento-city for me - so the situation of Villa Pane was ideal: near center but at the same time far away from it. But the best things were friendliness and food...and cleanless and peace......all- :-) Thanks Anna Marie and San Luigi (hope I remember your names correctly)!!!! ps. Guido was also lovely. Guido is their very humane and nice dog, who wanted us to play with him :-)"
"A friend and I booked this trip through Edible Destinations. I have traveled all over the world and I think Villa Pane was one of my favorite experiences. Anna Maria, Gianluigi and the staff are very welcoming and accommodating to your needs. The villa (Anna Maria's) home is beautiful and comfortable. You are made to feel at home yourself. The cooking classes were relaxed and fun and the food was delicious. Aside from the cooking classes, activities were planned every day, or you could also do whatever you wanted. I would definitely recommend Villa Pane, even if you are not taking the cooking classes."
"Anna Maria, GianLuigi and family: What a wonderful experience to stay in your lovely and well appointed home. Every detail was beyond expectation. Most especially I valued the feeling of connection with you and the warmth you extended to all your guests. Cooking school was incredible. I DO hope to return some day."
A villa Pane c'è Annamaria, una fata solare che dona allegria che dispensa sorrisi e consligli ambasciatrice della terra del sud. Fra uno scenario di ulivi e limoni la Matiz e Gianluigi la fanno da padroni. Si hanno solo piacevoli sorprese. Gli ospiti meravigliati da tutto questo sperano di tornare presto! con affetto e simpatia."
"Sue, Melanie & I visited Anne Marie and Gianluigi this summer and what a delightful relaxing 11 days we all three enjoyed. Sorrento, the Amalfi coast and the Bay of Naples is amazing if you have a car and explore and enjoy this part of Italy. Nearly every night we were enticed back to the Villa Pane for Anne Marie\'s delightful meals, the ingredients were always either grown on the property or was locally sourced produce. Gianluigi service was faultless. Breakfast is lovely offering a wide choice of fresh ingredients, you will not be disappointed. The room was lovely furnished and homely and comfortable, always spotlessly clean, the view of Sorrento and the Bay of Naples is delightful anytime of the day from your room. The shuttle bus service was fantastic, the drive up the narrow road to the Villa Pane looks easy when Gianluigi drives but with care in a small hatchback hire car the narrow road is not too much of a problem. Sue and Melanie both so much loved joining Anne Marie in her kitchen to be taught and make homemade pasta and other Italian cooking tips Simply Anne Marie and Gianluigi open up their lovely home and always made us feel comfortable, so much so to feel a member of their family with their warmth and thoughtfulness towards us all. We will return that is no doubt, it is a promise, thank you Anne Marie and Gianluigi."
"Una piccolissima luna di miele per noi due, accolti in un posto caldo e accogliente, a presto e torneremo! Grazie"
Mercì beaucoup! Thank you very much for everything. Our stay at Villa Pane has delighted us. We wish you a good continuation. Bye."
"We had the best holiday here at the villa pane Gianluigi and Anne Marie make you most welcome in the villa The evening dinner and breakfast was excellent and the cooking school a must do day . Very relaxing holiday and live how a tipi cal italian family do"
"Anna Maria you made our week (the whole group) Mui bueno Thank you for a fabulous experience"
"E' difficile raccontare in poche parole l'esperienza vissuta in questo angolo di Sorrento che lega alla movida del centro il relax dell'agriturismo perché posizionato in collina ma a pochissimi Km dal centro città. Ottime esperienze culinarie e soprattutto notevole la simpatia dei gestori sempre disponibili."
"13.10.16 I experienced a 7 night stay at Villa Pane. Did not know what to expect because of mixed reviews read before starting out but it turned out perfect for me. I chose a smaller B+B accommo. because I was travelling alone and wanted a friendly, helpful and homely atmosphere. Villa Pane lived up to this and more. If you welcome a little bit of walking (organised regular B+B shuttle transport worked well and I combined both), and you want to be a little away from the bustle of Sorrento centre but not too far, enjoy home cooked dinners and appre ciate the warm feeling like being a guest in an Italian family home you get it all at Villa Pane. Anna Maria and G\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'Luigi\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s hospitality had no limit. I cannot complain about anything - loved it and what a lovely group of other holidaymakers too. Did not once feel a \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'lonesome\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\' traveller. Would definitley return."
"We were really pleasantly surprised by this villa. After having looked at many options for accommodation in Sorrento we don't think we could have made a better choice. Remote, but not isolated thanks to the regular free shuttle bus & we never felt that anything was too much trouble. The evening meals were delicious & Anna Maria obviously cared very much that guests enjoyed her meals. Great views, large accommodating bedrooms. A relaxing oasis away from the bustle of Sorrento. Thank you. Sophie & Lee"
