"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.

An excellent B&B base very convenient and within easy and quick walking distance for the Circumvesuviana train service to nearby Sorrento, Pompeii and Herculaneum sites. The room and facilities were perfect for us, clean, no smoking and very quiet. There are a number of good restaurants within walking distance with varied menu. We found the Meta people very friendly and ready to help with directions etc. All in all cannot really fault it.

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. )

"Serenità, tranquillità e posizione ideale"
Abbiamo soggiornato 12 notti ed è stata una esperienza eccellente, Camera ampia, ben arredata, pulita. Si trova in una zona tranquilla di meta a pochi passi dalla spiaggia sabbiosa ampia di Meta. Alberto ci ha accolti come se fossimo di famiglia, sempre gentile e cortese, pronto ad ogni nostra necessità ed è una fonte inesauribile per avere informazioni su dove andare per le varie occasioni e come arrivare ai molteplici luoghi di interesse del golfo di Napoli. Il B&B si trova a 100 mt dalla circumvesuviana e con comodità si arriva in qualsiasi luogo tra Napoli e Sorrento. Particolare e ben gradita la scelta di fornire in camera l'angolo cottura con cesto di prodotti per preparare la colazione che più si desidera in pace e tranquillità. Aria condizionata e WIFI perfetto completano un esperienza assolutamente positiva!

"excellent place for rest"
Quiet nice place. For us Villa Pollio became the place of ideal rest. It's difficult to wish something more the best for travelers who appreciate a privacy. In lovely little shop near villa we buy fine ham and cheese for breakfast (all the rest you can found in the refrigerator and a basket which are so kindly provided by owners of Villa). And for evening relaxation in the this shop you can buy excellent wine frizzante. For a lunch and dinner owner Alberto give us excellent recommendation about taverna Tico Tico, and it was greet. We will come back at Villa Pollio, exactly

Hübsche Villa, sehr sehr hilfreicher, netter und gastfreundlicher Host, 100% sauber, bequem, großzügige Räume, zu italienischen Verhältnissen leise...:) Wir haben das Apartment für 2 gebucht, 4 nächte. War zu kurz... AC, Kühlschrank, kleiner Balkon, Zitronenbäume. Absolut + Preis/Leistungsverhältnis. Wenn wir noch mal die Gegend besuchen, dann kehren wir gerne zurück:)

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.

"Cute B&B outside of Sorrento!"
10/06/15 wilsonexoh Miami
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay at Villa Pollio for 3 nights! We even got more than we expected--a bedroom, bathroom, and kitchenette area with goodies provided! The location was wonderful--located just steps away from the Meta train station & easy 5 minute commute into Sorrento. Alberto was wonderful as well! He allowed us to check-in early to accommodate our train arrival & helped us navigate the transportation around Southern Italy. He also gave us some great recommendations for local restaurants! I would definitely recommend Villa Pollio to any couple looking for a cute, clean, convenient, and quite place to stay!

"Gateway to amalfitano"

We chose this property because of its proximity to the amalfi coast, sorrento and Capri. The station is minutes away and then it's 3 stations to sorrento. Buses are also handy. The apartment was clean and comfortable for 2 adults and 2 kids. The hosts were very helpful, efficient and friendly. We would recommend this accommodation.

"Fantastic stay"

Alberto was the most genuine and helpful host. Nothing was too difficult and his advice for us well suited to our needs. The accommodation was superb and well appointed with everything one needs including a coffee maker... An absolute must in Italy. Highly recommended to all who want a comfortable and relaxed tourist free stay. Close enough to all transport. We had a car but didn't need to use it for the whole 5 day stay. Plenty to do and see with the whole Amalfi Coast on your doorstep and Pompei just back a bit. Thanks for a great stay.

Villa Pollio is the best place to stay while visiting Amalfi Coast. 5 minutes away from the local train and buses and 10 minutes away from the beach (wich is magnificient). Albert is great, nice welcome and a lot of indication to help us during our journey. It was our honeymoon and he gave us nice gifts and we had a huge room and a nice balcony. The breakfast (basket of products) was great... we had way too much.

"Tiny fault but still excellent."
09/20/15 royj rotherham,england
The tiny fault is the bathroom was small.When my wife and I arrived Albert give us both a warm welcome and the 2 bedroom room and a small bottle of homemade limoncello. The room/s were really nice with the larger room being old Italian style. Everywhere was spotlessly clean with loads of variety for breakfast supplied by Albert.Arriving by train is easy and said train is a €1.20 trip to Sorrento, if arriving by car the drive maybe a struggle if you have a large car.

"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.
