I am so happy we found this apartment in marina grande. From the pre arrival communication to the arrival to the stay it was all perfect. The apartment was BETTER than pictures represented and the view cannot be beat. Our jaws dropped when we walked in and saw the view! Salvatore arranged transportation from the Naples train station and it was so nice to walk off the train and having someone waiting for us. We loved the restaurants down at the marina and loved that it was away from the crowds but a quick walk up to town. The apartment was clean, comfortable and very well stocked with breakfast items, beer and wine, paper products and soaps. I would absolutely return and recommend this apartment. Several friends have already messaged me asking for info after seeing our pictures
It is hard to speak too highly of our stay in Marine Grande and the Casa Consy apartment. Marine Grande is a beautiful little fishing port, it has a really village feel to it- lots of restaurants /bars that have been in the same family for generations, a tiny beach, you can sit and people watch all day, it is so busy! The restaurants are wonderful and give a good variety of food and range in prices.
After a busy day in Sorrento it was great to come back to the tranquillity of Marine Grande.
The apartment is very light, airy and spacious, there are balconies from each views all looking out to Vesuvius.
The only negatives are the apartment is slightly old fashioned and there isn't a very comfortable sitting area inside and the balconies are small, not big enough for 4 people to eat outside. Having said that everything else more than compensates for it- we so enjoyed our stay.
Salvatore and his family were great, really helpful, nothing was too much trouble.
We will definitely be back and would highly recommend this apartment.
As a family of four we prefer self catering accommodation to hotels and this apartment absolutely proves why this is best. The location was outstanding, the views were stunning and we could not find fault. Our only regret was allowing ourselves only one day and one night in Sorrento. Salvatore and Tiziana were incredibly helpful hosts and welcomed us in the morning without hesitation. Tiziana was waiting for us outside the apartment so no worries in finding the place. The views of the Bay of Naples and the Marina were lovely and we sampled one of the restaurants which was also outstanding.
We liked everything about this wonderful apartment and Marina Grande in Sorrento.
Marina Grande is a wonderful location if you like great views, the sights and sounds of everyday local life and fabulous restaurants.
Casa Consy is a lovely, spacious apartment which overlooks the marina and also the Bay of Naples over to Vesuvius. It has three small balconies and another larger one. It has views from every room. The main room is huge with high ceilings and tall windows. There are two shower rooms. Both bedrooms have lots of space and their own balconies. There were breakfast items as well as various basic cooking items like oil and salt. There were plenty of toiletries and cleaning items. There was a washing machine and washing liquid. The Wi Fi worked well and there was easy to use air con / heating.
Salvatore was quick to answer our questions before our stay and he met us on arrival and explained what we needed to know about the flat. There were lots of brochures and timetables provided.
We enjoyed sitting in the morning sunshine, watching the marina wake up. After this the balconies were in shade.
Marina Grande is a ten to fifteen minute walk up hill into Sorrento town. From here there are easy (but often very busy) transport links to places like Pompeii, Amalfi, Capri and Naples.
If you want complete peace and quiet this would not suit....the marina begins to wake up quite early and the restaurants (two of which are immediately below this second floor apartment) were still closing down at around midnight. For us, this all added to the experience! It was great to have so many eating options within a two minute walk...I think there were 9 restaurants within sight! We ate at three of them. All had great seafood.
Sorrento is an expensive places to stay compared to some other places in Italy. I had looked at lots of other options before I booked this one and this one was great value.
Can spend hours on the balcony watching the life around and out in the Gulf. Location is amazing with a wonderful view, particularly from one of the bedrooms. Restaurants close by are excellent. Salvatore arranged for parking which meant we could travel around Sorrento and Amalfi easily.
However lots of minor problems, a disappointment but can be accepted with the location. Hopefully the owner will soon correct these.
