"Great B&B"
We highly recommend Villa Pollio first of all because of its host – Alberto is kind, helpful and generous. Whenever you need him – he was there. He printed out our eTickets for us, supplied us with freshly picked cherries, oranges, and lemons, and even super-delicious lemonchello. We found at the villa everything we were looking for: nothing fancy, but all we needed – kitchenette, safe, WiFi, bathroom. Location is perfect: 3 minutes from Meta train station through underpath under the tracks, few steps to the grocery store down the street, 6 minutes by train to Sorrento and 30 min to Pompei, 15-20 min on foot to the beach and Tico-Tico Restaurant. Commute to Amalfi is easy from VP: bus stop is next to the train station, we bought a ticket for $8 from driver. The ticket is good for 24 hours, so since we left early we were able to visit Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello in one day – all for $8. Overall – great experience.

Warm welcoming. Very good situation : near the train station Meta where we can take the circumvesuviana ( 10min of Sorrento, 20 min of Pompei, 30min of Herculanum/Vesuvio) and to 10 min of the beach. Nice and clean room with a very nice private balcony. Quiet but however placed near a busy street.

"Best Option in Sorrentine Penisula"
Wow, what an excellent experience we had staying at Villa Pollio. The BnB is only a few stops away on the local train from the hustle and bustle of busy Sorrento in the peaceful town of Meta! Plus the location of the BnB from the Meta stop is so convenient, a 1-5 minute walk. Albert, a local and the BnB owner is so accommodating and has plenty of knowledge and recommendations to make for the surrounding area. The accommadations are excellent, spotless, well kept with old Italian charm. The included breakfast is great for those who want to start the day with a quick meal at the villa consisting of espresso, coffee, fruit drinks, bottled water, croissants and much more. All of which are provided to you in your room and you prepare yourself. We also enjoyed great meals out at local places in Meta based on recommendations from Alberto. We originally planned to stay 3 days and ended up staying for an additional night because of how much we enjoyed our accommodations and the town of Meta. If you plan on visiting the Almafi coast and want to enjoy a small Italian town and avoid all the tourist this is a great option. The locals are so friendly and very welcoming and Albert runs an amazing business and is so kind! We hope to return to Meta and stay at Villa Pollio again!

We had a great stay at Villa Pollio, a perfect location for exploring along the Naples/Sorrento coastline. Great size rooms, and really handy to have a separate living room/kitchenette, especially when travelling with children as we were. Appreciated being able to store food and drinks in the fridge. Nice fresh fruit from our friendly hosts. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Is a small family-run BB in Meta. If you get a room for a good price, it's definitly a good choice. The Meta train station is only 5 min.away from the Villa, the best in the region Beach of Meta is 12-15 min.walk downhill (on the way back it's better to take a bus). With the Sorrento-Naples train, which runs every 20 min, you can reach Sorrento (5 minutes), Pompei (20 minutes), Naples (60 minutes). In our tripple room we had a possibility to prepare our own coffee and got supply for a breackfast: a big assortiment of ready made sweat backed goods from the supermarket, cornflackes, milk, juice, fresh fruits, mineral water. For every extra needs there are 2-3 small supermarkets 3-10 min.walk from the Villa. All fans of the real italian breakfast (just a cup of good coffee/cuppuccino and a fresh backed cornetto) I would recommend a 10 min.walk to the next backery (pasticeria).

We enjoyed our stay at Villa Pollio and would definitely return. Alberto and Lisa were very kind and made us feel welcome. The house is lovely, homey, and very well kept. Our room had a balcony overlooking the pretty garden, a little kitchen, and the room itself was a very good size. Meta is a nice town and a good base for exploring the Sorrento Coast, Pompeii, Ercolano, and Naples. Albert and Lisa can recommend some excellent restaurants.

"Great place to base near Sorrento"
Villa Pollio is a great place to stay near Sorrento without the huge price tag attached. It was everything we needed. Great, clean room with private bathroom, breakfast supplied in the room, car parking, and only 2 minute walk to the train station. the personal touches were first class. Alberto kept in contact from the moment we booked. He supplied us with fresh oranges and lemons from his beautiful garden, and was always available if we needed anything. He even helped us book a tour when we had difficulty booking it because nobody could speak English. The girl who cleans and looks after the apartments (I think her name was Alissa?? Or something like that) was also lovely and extremely helpful. We would book this apartment again if we ever returned to the area. We would not hesitate in recommending Villa Pollio to anybody. Thank you Alberto for a lovely stay.

"Would go back any time"
Great owners, great room, great home away from home. I was very happy to have a large room with my own kitchenette and balcony. It was quiet, clean, and comfortable. I travel led as a single female and this Villa was great, also less than a 5 minute walk from the train (exit the train station, turn right, and go down the stairs to the right. On the other side of the tunnel you will come up on an Italian Post Office, the B&B is right there. )

La costiera Sorrentina merita di essere vista. Villa Pollio vi offre la possibilità di trascorrere una vacanza vicino alla costiera senza immergersi nell'inevitabile caotica presenza di turisti di Sorrento e Positano. Meta è una località tranquilla, soprattutto nelle vicinanze di Villa Pollio, il paese non offre molto se non una spiaggia ben attrezzata. Vi consiglio di soggiornare a Villa Pollio, di usufruire della spiaggia di Meta e di fare tanti giri nei dintorni. Villa Pollio è strategica per una vacanza di movimento, vicino alle fermate dei mezzi di trasporto (bus, treno) ed offre un confortevole ambiente di riposo. Punti a favore della struttura: la presenza di un angolo cucina. Una colazione più ricca porterebbe la struttura a livelli di eccellenza.

"Lovely place in a good location"
08/26/15 Malcolm V Maidstone, United Kingdom
Villa Pollio is a charming guesthouse in a great location. Albert was an exceptional host. I went with my two daughters (16 and 12). We booked the 3 bed room and were given two interconnected double rooms with a dining table, balcony and kitchenette. The decor was very good and the rooms were exceptionally clean. The breakfast included a wide variety of items (wafers, croissants, cake, and rusks etc). there was water, juices and tea and coffee. The fridge had a good amount of storage for beer, wine, cheese, cold meats etc which allowed us to have some light lunches. Villa Pollio is very close to the railway with regular half hourly trains to Sorrento, Pompeii and Naples. There are two beaches within a 10 minute walk both with cafes / restaurants, the better beach is by a marina and offers seafood. There is a lively Pizzeria very close to the guesthouse.

Hi-I went with myself and 3 daughters and it was great- there's 2 separate rooms- so my 2 kids shared the bed in one and I shared it with my daughter in the other. There were snacks in the room for breakfast which worked out if people woke up at different times. Albert is super nice and helfpul. I would stay here again and highly recommend it if you are staying in Meta.

We loved Villa Pollio. It is in a quiet village but very easy to get to, very close to the train station and there are good transport links to both Naples and Sorrento. The Villa was very clean, very quiet and only 10 minutes walk to the beach and the good restaurants in the town. We had a small balcony also, which was lovely. Breakfast was provided and it was great! Albert is a wonderful host and was very helpful and informative - his English is also very good! We hope to return to Villa Pollio soon!

"Amalfi hideaway"
07/11/15 MaKayP Sea Girt, New Jersey
We stayed at Villa Pollio, in Meta while we explored the Amalfi Coast and Capri. Meta is a short train outside of Sorrento, quieter and less touristy, perfect for us.Our room was large, with a nice balcony overlooking beautiful lemon and orange trees laden with fruit. A kitchenette and private bath complete the room. The B&B is close to the train station, just a short walk away. We could easily catch transportation to Capri, Naples and the rest of the Amalfi coast, as well as Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius. When we were done exploring for the day, there was an excellent pizzeria place nearby. Take your evening stroll down to the beach where the stunning views of the sun setting over the ocean will cap off your day. Antonio, our host, was very helpful with directions and suggestions.

Villa Pollio gives travelers a unique opportunity to experience living in an Italian community. The villa is very conveniently located near the train station with frequent service between Naples and Sorrento. The villa is very clean and the kitchenette was always well stocked with milk, water, cereal and snacks. Alberto is super friendly and provided lots of useful information about transportation to all the local attractions. All in all, a wonderful and memorable stay.

Our stay at Villa Pollio was a delight. Our room was a small apartment with a large double bedroom and a nice balcony. It was clean and well cared for by our host Alberto, who was charming and very helpful. He even drove our luggage to the station in his car when we left so we didn't have to carry our cases up the steps that led up to the road. Such a gentleman! The breakfast supplied was more than adequate, with fresh fruit from the garden - a nice bonus. Only a couple of minutes walk from the railway station, making it very easy to visit all the local attractions such as Sorrento and Pompei. Our only complaint was the lack of good restaurants in Meta, but that would not deter us from visiting villa Pollio again. An excellent start to our tour through Italy! Thank you Alberto!

"Excellent place for exploring"
06/24/15 Phil W
Our stay at Villa Pollio was extremely pleasant. We were greeted by Albert, a great host who made us feel very welcome and a room that was surprisingly big; consisting of a double bedroom, a kitchen/dining area, a bathroom and a balcony (we had been paying almost double to stay in a single room half the size in the center of Naples previously). Breakfast was supplied in the form of a large basket of pastries/cakes/biscuits/breads and milk/juice in the fridge. We stayed for 6 nights that was made all the more accommodating by Albert and Alessia who were more than happy to get you anything else you needed or replenish anything you might have finished (like milk and oranges picked from the orange tree straight outside). The station is a stones throw from the Hotel - on which you can easily and quickly get into Sorrento for €1 and I believe this connects to Naples itself as well as along the coast to Salerno. We had rented a car also which allowed us to drive down the Amalfi Coast, the main road being easily accessible with gated parking provided at the accommodation. The town itself of Meta has a small beach and has a few quaint restaurants that do amazing food too. If you are a fairly autonomous couple that want to explore the Coast, Pompeii and It's beautiful surroundings, the location is great, the rooms are clean and the friendly staff are the cherry on top of what was a great holiday. Definitely considering another visit. Phil

"Excellent Host Wonderful Stay"
06/07/15 Cheryl W Pacific Coast Australia, Australia
Meta is a great place to stay for easy access to Sorrento, Pompeii, Herculinium, and other sites, Positano and Amalpi or even Naples. Within a short walk to Railway station and general store/deli/butcher and there are restaurants nearby or down at the beach. Villa Pollio is a charming B&B that is clean and comfortable with a small balcony overlooking the orchard, with off street parking and free wifi. The breakfast basket was stock with far more than we coul eat, Our host Albert was wonderful, happy and always very helpful. We stayed here 9 years ago and were very pleased with it again. Good to see Albert was just as charming as his dad.

Commute to Amalfi is easy from Villa Pollio: bus stop is next to the train station, we bought a ticket for $8 from driver. The ticket is good for 24 hours, so since we left early we were able to visit Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello in one day – all for $8. Overall – great experience. Thank you so much Alberto! Come visit us in Chicago, transatlantic flight is not as bad as you think it is.
