Rated 4.8 out of 5
I can’t say enough good things about our stay. It was amazing. We arrived tired and hungry from our travels from Rome. After checking in we decided to sit under the leafy pergola in the beautiful garden. That’s when we met Giuseppe, bartender extraordinaire. Since there were2 1st communion celebrations going on, the kitchen was closed to food orders. Giuseppe somehow, brought us wonderful wine and to large dishes of delicious seafood that he somehow scrounged from the kitchen. It was fresh and delicious. All the staff was accommodating and friendly. The grounds were like paradise. A lush garden perched on a cliff above the sea. Our room was seaside with a large communal balcony. The main building also had a beautiful balcony. The room itself was spacious and had a small anteroom with desk and chair. The room also had a decent sized bathroom with shower. The furniture was a bit outdated, but it was comfortable. And we slept well with very efficient air conditioning.

The staff at Villa Crawford were extremely professional, courteous, and accommodating. The facilities themselves are very well-kept and comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and the views are stunning. The chapel on the premises affords the opportunity for prayer and worship as well. I would highly recommend Villa Crawford to anybody looking to spend some time in Sorento.

This place was like a very fancy hotel. Top quality food, service, rooms were beautiful and very clean, they played music outdoors each evening. The gardens are lovely. In the evenings we sat on the patio and watched boats out on the ocean. The location is within walking distance of Sorrento, which is a delightful town. I will definitely stay at Villa Crawford again!

Ideal location, beautiful views and plenty of outdoor places to sit in the sun or shade on the verandah overlooking the sea or in the garden. Easy walking distance of local town and Sorrento. Circumvesuviana train stop also nearby for easy access to the nearby tourist spots. Restful and very beautiful location. Would be difficult to improve on. Ideal for solo travelers. Would recommend most highly. My second time to stay with Monastery Stays and would recommend them very highly also. Thank you.
