"1I travel quite a lot and I can honestly say that my experience at Villa Pane was one of the most pleasurable vacations I have ever taken. The warmth, enthusiasm and graciousness helped to make this trip memorable. I made your beef ravioli and tiramisu for my family on Christmas eve, and they loved it. If you ever get to Cincinnati let me know, Coleen and I can be your guides. Thank you for sharing your home with all of us. Wishing you and your families the best."
"Salve, Anna Maria, Gianluigi, Angela,& Agnese! We had a thoroughly wonderful time at Villa Pane. You truly made us feel welcome and at home. A pleasant balance of culinary learning and free time to relax and explore lovely Sorrento and Capri. We heartily recommend Villa Pane and wish you continued happiness and success. Grazie mille, amici!"
"Senza dubbio consiglierei a chiunque questo "casa" ( almeno così ci siamo sentiti noi) per la pulizia, l’ottima qualita’ della cucina, la gentilezza, e per la struttura in generale che offre ottimi servizi. ...... per il pane appena sfornato,...... per le prugne appena raccolte....... per la cortesia della signora Anna Maria sempre attenta ai più piccoli particolari che danno il senso del suo totale amore per questa "sua crestura" grazie anche al grande guido. torneremo sicuramente"
"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."
"Una piccolissima luna di miele per noi due, accolti in un posto caldo e accogliente, a presto e torneremo! Grazie"
"We just visited Anna Marie at her villa for cooking school. It was the best meal we ever had. And the stories she told and the warmth of her home made the experience something we will never forget."
"Enjoyable Villa Pane We were a group of 6 friends spending the first week of October at Villa Pane. We enjoyed it very much; the friendliness of the host family with Anna Maria, her son Luigi and their dog Guido was overwhelming; we rather felt like visiting family friends than staying at a hotel. Villa Pane itself is a relatively small resort with only some 10 nice and well equipped rooms some 3 km up hills and outside the Sorrento centre. This might be regarded as somewhat impractical but the problem is overcome by the shuttle service provided by Luigi. Villa Pane is nicely surrounded by Italian gardens and vegetation and provides a place for relaxation after visiting all the busy tourist traps in Sorrento and its surroundings. We had not intended to have all our dinners at Villa Pane but so it happened that every evening after returning from the days´ “tourist work” we decided to enjoy Anna Marias excellent Italian food. This also provided the opportunity to enjoy pre-dinner drinks on the roof terrace with a magnificent view over the Gulf of Napoli. Villa Pane is highly recommendable to families and small groups that want to have a nice, quite and affordable base station for the exploration of the Sorrento peninsula and the Amalfi coast."
"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."
"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)"
"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!!!"
"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."
"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."
"We had a pleasant stay at Villa Pane. We stayed 10 days in the beautiful area of Sorrento. The dinner at night were great. I can recommend the BBQ that was delicious. The whole family and her dog Guido were very nice and friendly. We really liked Villa Pane. Ciao Lara e Thorsten"
