"Me and my mother had a wonderful time. Anna Maria and her family make you feel at home. My mother absolutely loved it, it was her favorite part of the trip. Thank you for your hospitality and don't waist your time on the restaurants when you have Anna Maria cooking. Enjoy"
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."
Descubrir Sorrento y apreciar su belleza fue para nostros una gran alegria. El azul de su mar y el verde de sus montanas no podremos olvidarlos nunca. Tam poco las casas com colgadas en las laderas ni ababilidad de su gente. Y Villa Pane, com un paraiso de paz, de tranquilidad en medio de tanta belleza Y la atenciòn afectuosa, familiar de su gente. Hasta pronto!"
"We had the best week at Villa Pane last Oct. We booked the cooking class through Edible Destination. Anna Maria, her son Gianluigi and assistant Angela are the best. Our cooking class consisted of 9 and was perfect. Who knew I\'d like zucchini flowers and my husband would be making ravioli and pasta at home. Not to mention he\'s made tiramisu & Limoncello! All the meals we made were fabulous - first we cook, then we all eat - family style. The room was very comfortable and the view absolutely beautiful. Breakfast each morning was perfect - different items each day. The grounds, her gardens, flowers, lemon trees, the chickens, everything was just amazing. Anna Maria makes you feel very comfortable from the time you step in the lobby until you sadly have to say goodbye and go home. As I told Anna Maria, we\'ll be back. Thank you Anna Maria. We miss you!"
si trova in una posizione splendida con vista di tutto il golfo capri inclusa camere impeccabili curatissimo ogni servizio con gentilezza e cordialità dei gestori, la sig,ra Anna maria cucina benissimo consgilio molto anche pranzare li. Ho cenato anche in uno degli hotel a 5 stelle migliori di sorrento, non cè dubbio che abbia mangiato molto meglio a villa pane spero di tornarci presto. ps. anche se non si trova in centro il servizio navetta è ottimo."
"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."
"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."
"Wir waren Ende August/Anfang September für 10 Tage Gäste der Villa Pane und haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Die Familie Brot ist wahnsinnig nett und hilfsbereit und Anne kocht das beste Essen in ganz Sorrent! Ihre 4-Gänge Menues sind ein Traum und stets mit frischen Zutaten aus dem Garten zubereitet. Die Zimmer sind gemütlich und werden täglich sauber gemacht und man hat einen herrlichen Ausblick auf die Stadt und das Meer. Durch sehr gute Busverbindungen kann man die ganzen Sehenswürdigkeiten der Amalfiküste bequem erreichen. Wenn man mal keine Lust auf eine Tour hat, dann entspannt man einfach im wunderschönen Garten am kleinen Pool. Ich kann diese Pension uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen, denn es ist Erholung pur. Wir kommen gerne wieder!"
"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 stayed at Villa Pane in July and really enjoyed our stay. In fact, it felt like we\'d struck gold. It is by far one of the most tranquil and beautiful spots in Sorrento. It is very rustic and quiet and so if you are wanting to be in the centre of it all, it\'s probably not the right place for you. Luigi and Anna were so hospitable and went out of their way to make us comfortable. Luigi was fantastic with the shuttle bus service and even gave us a lift to a wedding which we were going to. The only downside is that the service only runs til 11.30 and a taxi up the hill is beyond expensive - it won\'t even go all the way due to the tiny road leading up to the villa. The food was wonderful, breakfast simple but with nice fresh ingredients, some from the farm. The rooms were good and clean. The air con didn\'t really work too well but it isn\'t too hot up on the hill at night. The gardens are swimming pool area were idyllic, surrounded by lemon trees. I would definitely recommend this, especially for couples wanting some quiet and a unique experience."
"Thanks for a wonderful stay, great place, great food and great host. You have a very welcoming home and we hope to see you again."
Ringraziamo l'ospitalità di tutta la famiglia pane e tutte le persone incontrate durante questa vacanza in penisola sorrentina. Il posto favoloso, la cortesia inimitabile ci faranno rimpiangere questi giorni. Arrivederci a presto e tante buone cose"
