Dreaming of beauty without beasts, coast without crowds? The fishing village of Nerano is far quieter and more authentic than the commercialised Amalfi coast. Guglielmo’s hillside jumble of houses, its core dating back to 1700, is a labyrinth of terraces and steps, gardens, gazebos and pool, all looking over the sparkling Tyrrhenian Sea. His recently renovated apartments showcase his love of colour and his sense of the practical. The spaces are good and full of personality, some rooms are vaulted, furnishings mix antique and modern, kitchens and bathrooms have all you need. Guglielmo, the most generous, enthusiastic host imaginable, wants you all to have the best holiday possible, grows his own organic fruit and veg for his restaurant and adores surprising guests with impromptu excursions, barbecues, boat trips, sunset aperitifs… There’s a pizza-oven evening once a week. The Massese lemons are renowned, the seafood is out of this world, the gardens flower all year in this lush Mediterranean climate. Take the whole place and have Guglielmo organise a week of activities for 12-18 guests.

We loved, LOVED our half-term week at Casale Villarena in June 2017. Guglielmo and Rosa are the most fantastic hosts, the garden and pool are lovely and the whole setting worked really well for our family of four (twin girls aged 10). The food is gorgeous and we felt no need to try out other restaurants. There was a shop very close for buying basics. The absolute highlight was a tailor-made boat trip along the Amalfi coast, organised and hosted by Guglielmo, including food, drink & secret coves to swim in. This is really not to be missed, and our daughters rated it as their best day of 2017..
