"Anna Maria you made our week (the whole group) Mui bueno Thank you for a fabulous experience"
"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."

"Grazie Mucho mi familia italiano! I will miss you, and you will forever hold a spot in mi corazone, and in my stomach! Come to the ranch anityme please!"
"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."
"Abbiamo trascorso 3 giorni magnifici a villa pane, una struttura veramente bella e familiare, una camera meravigliosa, con una vista stupenda...i proprietari dell'albergo sono delle persone gentilissime che fanno in modo di farti sentire a casa propria...per non parlare della cucina della signora annamaria, una vera goduria, e poi c'è il cane Guido che anche lui è molto ospitale e gentile con gli ospiti della villa...ringraziamo tutto lo staff di villa pane per aver reso magnifico il nostro soggiorno...a presto!!!"
"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 :-)"
"We had a wonderfull stay at Villa Pane. Both Anna Maria and Gian Luigi did all to make our stay a god experience. Anna Maria made us walk to hideaway beaches, serving good dinners as premiums when we returned. Gian Luigi helped booking sight seeings and bringing us to and picking us up from Sorrento at all times. They really took good care of us at all times."
"Hello’ dearests, !! Greetings for Christmas to our new friends in Sorrento! We still talk about our wonderful time and are looking forward to the next time we can come back to see you again."
"Thank you so much for your great hospitality and warm welcome went to Capri and had a lovely time. Thank you again!"
"We took the cooking class from Anna Marie and her staff. We had a great time as well as great food. Highly recommend taking the class."
"Villa pane is a beautiful location for a holiday in sorrento, we were made do feel extremely welcome even by the lovely rocky (the dog)"
"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."
