Villa Crawford (CAS131)

Sorrento Campania

House of the Figlie di Maria Ausiliatrice

A stunning villa in a prime position on the peninsula. Offering sweeping views of the Mediterranean and Mt. Vesuvius, this expansive guest house is a true highlight of Campania.

The Sorrento area is ideally positioned, with attractions such as Pompeii, Mt. Vesuvius and Naples all easily reachable for day trips.
 
Rated 4.7 out of 5
Wow! Fantastic, superb gold star accommodation. Villa Crawford must have the best location in all of St Agnello. Not only is the Villa and it’s gardens beautiful, the accommodation comfortable, the view from the terraces, dining room and lounges is magnificent. Cannot ask for more. The staff were friendly and helpful. Bountiful breakfast of hams, cheeses, eggs, croissant, cereals, fruit, yoghurt and coffee. Directions to Villa Crawford were not clear to us. We took the train from Naples to Sorrento, only to have to get back on the train and get out at St Agnello, (the stop before Sorrento, which is the last stop). The taxi ride, literally 5 minutes, but all up hill and difficult with luggage is a bit expensive at €15. From the Villa, it is an easy walk down to the beach and into Sorrento. Grocery store nearby and many lovely restaurants to choose from around the Villa. We enjoyed dinner at the Villa one night - well worth it! A night cap on the terrace is very special with the boats lit up and Mount Vesuvius across the sea. Thank you for a memorable and special stay.

Villa Crawford far exceeded my expectations. It is an amazingly tranquil, beautiful, place with unbelievable views of the Bay of Naples. My room was very large, extremely clean, just perfect. I slept with my my window closest to the bed open each night and was lulled to sleep by the sounds of the waves hitting the rocks. I didn’t want to leave and hope to return someday.

Villa Crawford exceeded my expectations. As a painter who teaches workshops it was the perfect place to rest and paint after a busy week of teaching

Very relaxing and peaceful, good location away from the crowds but on main transport route so easy to get everywhere, lovely views, good local dishes provided in the restaurant if you choose to eat there.

It’s a very cool place with stunning views and you can walk to anything. It was nice having a restaurant available. Bed was comfortable. I wasn’t there long enough to take advantage but it was quite beautiful. Pleasant staff.

Danielle’s service was simply outstanding and very genuinely caring. She made me feel at home and I will be back! I will recommend the Crawford widely as well.
