Our stay at Casa Rachele was our best ever holiday. Rachele is so warm, welcoming and friendly that from the minute you step into her house you feel like a member of her family, and a part of the community at Piano di Sorrento. Rachele will help you with planning your excursions, and has all the brochures and tickets with prices. The breakfast are delicious, and her beautiful home is scrupulously clean. Our bedroom was lovely, with a view overlooking the bay and one of the town squares, which was lit up for the festival of St Michael. The windows have a mosquito blind, as well as a drop down shutter to keep out the light, and two lots of glazing to keep out noise. It was very quiet anyway. The other bedroom is bigger, and has the most beautiful antique furniture. Rachele changes the linen and towels every two days. Rachele lets you know the best restaurants and shops, and you are extra well treated if you mention her name. We walked into the wrong restaurant by mistake once, and could really tell the difference in quality. One of Rachele's recommendations, Pepe's, has the most fantastic real Italian food. It is really atmospheric, and Pepe was a really wonderful host. Andrea the grocer sells delicious sandwiches, with local tomatoes and real parma ham and the best mozzarella. If you are looking for handmade sandals, for which the area is famous, then Andrea the shoemaker will make you a pair to fit in 10 minutes, and at around half the price of Anna Capri. He has just the same styles, and gave me the option of a non slip sole too. Some of the clothes for the more expensive shops in Sorrento and Capri etc are made in Piano. My husband bought some beautiful shirts very cheaply, and on our last day he wanted to buy a shirt for our son. The shop, Corso Italia, was closed for stocktaking, but opened especially to let him purchase the shirt. Piano di Sorrento is a lovely little town to explore, and the beach area is very beautiful, and so quiet. We me

The rooms and facilities at Casa Rachele were excellent - Rachele keeps a clean and impeccable housekeeping service and both the room and shared toilet were always spotless. Breakfast was nicely prepared always keeping in mind our preferences. I might add that Rachele is warm and caring and loves to sit and chat with her guests. She is insightful of the area and can give lots of tips of where to eat and how to get around. A few things to note: the b&b is not located in Sorrento proper but in a small town just outside, only a few train stops away. Ideal for a quiet stay but only slightly inconvenient if you want to be in the thick of the action and not have to plan your trips around the train schedule. Additionally, while Rachele is accommodating, she does cater to a more mature, responsible guest. We were at leisure to do our own schedule however she does have particular preferences that might not suit those that plan on more a spontaneous, adventurous stay. All in all, it was a wonderful few days though admittedly in the future, I will likely be looking for something geared towards younger travellers.

A very good, clean and cozy place in a very strategic location: Piano di Sorrento is a pretty non touristic town very close to Sorrento. Rachele was amazingly welcoming and friendly and gave us a lot of advises about transportation, sightseing, etc.

Rachele is the nicest host one can dream about. Her apartment, located right in the centre of Piano di Sorrento (around 30-40 minutes walk from the centre of Sorrento, also linked by train), is spacious and nicely furnished. She gave us many useful hints on where to eat and on local transport. I definitely recommend her place!

We spent two nights at Casa Rachele & had a wonderful stay. Rachele is very warm & welcoming. The linen sheets & antique furniture were clasic. She truly cares about your comfort. Rachele was extremely helpful in providing information & directions, making navigating unknown territory much easier. She had lovely breakfasts & made a special effort to serve us canolis when she learned how much we liked them. There are many local shops & we ate dinner at a wonderful little restaurant (Letrearcate). If ever traveling to this area again, we would definitely stay at Casa Rachele.

Ottimo soggiorno a casa Rachele! Rachele è molto disponibile, oltre ad offrirvi un alloggio molto curato e completo di tutto, vi darà qualsiasi tipo di indicazione per muovervi in costiera evitando spiacevoli sorprese! Il primo giorno ci ha spiegato ogni cosa, fornendoci cartine, guide e consigli! Vi saprà anche indicare dove mangiare la sera e vi indicherà una macelleria/mini market sotto casa con prodotti di grande qualità! La connessione Internet funziona perfettamente!! Grazie Rachele!!

Casa Rachele is a good place to stay if visiting the Bay of Naples for a few days. Just a few minutes from the railway station so visiting Sorrento - Naples is simple. Recommend that a tourist ticket for trains and buses is bought. We mad good use of a 3 day ticket. Rachele was a very good host and made us very welcome. The room shared a bathroom but this was not a problem.

We arrived there one week before the Easter and stayed for a week. We planned to visit Amalfi cost and Pompei. First we tried to find BB in Naples but after all we chose to stay in Piano di Sorrento, neighborring town to Sorrento. This decision was absolutely right, after all. We could spend fantastic week with Rachel who is a warm-hearted host. Casa Rachele which means the house of Rachele is a small, just two-doubleroom Bed and breakfast. There, you can find the real warmth of the southern Italien people. Rachel's farther was a famous sea captain of the petroleum tanker and sailed all over the world. Therefore people in the Piano know her very much. Even after many years of his retirement, they still call her 'the daughter of the sea captain). This fact helps us travellers very much because once we speak her name in the Piano, people treat us like a friend. We got to know many local people such as Pepe, Luca and Andrea only because we stayed at her BB. We think that communicating with local people is one of the most important point for enjoying the travel. Case Rachele provides that. Rachele recommended us three very nice place to eat and one nice glossary. Also, there is a coin-washer near the BB. From Piano to Sorrento, you can only spend a few minites by a train called circumvesuviana. Although Rachele loves to welcome all the foreign guests. especially she loves to welcome Japanese because of her sweet memory of her father. He visited Japan several times and experienced a very nice time there. He always talked about Japan to the young Rachele and she really got interested in the Oriental country. We really recommend you to stay her house. Piano is a very nice place to stay as a base camp to travel around the Sorrento Peninnsula and Amalfi coast.

According to the reviews and also price we chose Casa Rachele as our base for traveling at Sorrento and Amalfi coast. Our experience for living there 3 days proved that we made a right choice. Rachele was very nice and gave us many very useful information and suggestions. For example, she even checked the weather in advance and suggested us how to arrange the travels in Amalfi coast. The house of Rachele is spacious and bright. Shared toilet is also ok because there are only two rooms and you needn't wait for a while. The location is near to train station and only two stops from Sorrento. We were very satisfied with the conditions of Casa Rachele except no WIFI at the time we lived. But Rachele offered internet cable and you can also use her PC if you only take tablet. Rachele loves the guests from all over the world, especially from Asia. Best choice for the B&B in Sorrento area!

Very comfortable b&b with air conditioning and a tasty traditional Italian breakfast. The owner is extremely friendly, and takes pride in her business--meaning that she makes sure her guests are happy and that the rooms and shared bathroom is always clean. In addition she provides guests with information and maps of all the surrounding sights. It is in a convenient location, close to Sorrento but outside the constant stream of tourists. It definitely a wonderful stay!

Our stay at Casa Rachele was one of the highlights of our visit to Italy. We really appreciated and enjoyed the kindness and helpfulness of Rachele, the owner. The room was very well furnished, clean and spacious. Although we had to share the bathroom, it was no problem. Rachele went out of her way to make our stay as comfortable as possible, which resulted in us becoming good friends! Highly recommended.

Rachele was very welcoming, and she gave great instructions to get you started. Her english was excellent in that regard. The house was immaculately cleaned as in the Italian motherly discipline. The furnishings were a classic Italian style with impressive embroidered and pressed sheets. Piano is still quite lively with out the touristic trappings of Sorrento. Bear in mind the restricted bus schedule for the Amalfi coast.

My fiancée and I are travelers from Canada and stayed here for 5 nights in a private room and shared bathroom. Rachele is the sweetest host you can ask for! The place is kept absolutely spotless and neat. When we arrived, Rachele sat with us and spoke about the things we could see in Sorrento, as well as the other places we planned to visit, such as the Amalfi Coast, Positano, and Pompeii. Rachele provided us with sample tickets that we would need to purchase to use the local transit as well as brochures and other things to read about the various attractions. She also has excellent recommendations for restaurants in Piano. At breakfast, she serves hot croissants and delicious cappuccinos! She also includes yogurt and orange juice. She will ask for your preferred time for breakfast. On the morning that we had to leave, Rachele provided us with cappuccinos and take-away croissants. She also advised us that in Piano, there is a direct bus to the Naples Airport for only 10 Euros. Rachele is very informative, and loves to chat with her guests. She provides wonderful service, and welcomes you in to the house. Rachele really made our stay great and with her advice, we had a fantastic time in Piano and the surrounding area.

I'd stayed with Rachel in mid-June and it was a wonderful experience. Her house is beautifully decorated and I especially enjoyed her seafood restaurant recommendation that was in the plaza right next to the flat. At first I had my reservations before I had booked, because it was located in Piano in Sorrento rather than Sorrento, however it wasn't a problem at all! Piano had many circumvesuviana trains running, I think about 3-4 an hour through Piano. It was very easy to visit the historical sights such as Pompeii and Herculaneum, and it was easy to travel to Sorrento too. During our stay we also went to Amalfi and did the God's walk. It's easy to find the b&b and it is literally 5 mins walk from the Piano di Sorrento circumvesuviana stop, perfect if you're planning to use public transport for your stay. we absolutely loved it and would definitely go back :)

"Glimpse into a local Italian's life..."
03/08/15 yunicorn78 Seoul, South Korea
My friend and I were backpacking across Europe and we decided to stay in a mixture of lodgings for our trip- hotels, hostels, farmhouses, vacation rentals, B & B's and more! I was looking forward to staying with a local Italian to get a glimpse into the culture and I was not disappointed! When I had arrived in Piano Sorrento, I was struggling with my luggage. I had purchased a very cheap one (in Rome) and the wheels had started to fall off as I pulled it across the cobblestone streets. Rachele, our host, helped me find a suitable luggage store in the neighborhood and I managed to purchase a much better one. She also helped me get rid of my old luggage as it is not easy to throw away large sized items. She was extremely helpful and kind. Rachele is a charming host and her house was spotless. I was impressed with the quality and style of her furnishings. She takes pride in her home and it shows. I know that Italians are known for their attention for beauty but I was really amazed by how she styled her lovely home. If you are into that kind of stuff, she would be happy to chat with you about it. As soon as we arrived, Rachele sat both of us down, and explained to us the things that we could do in the area. She even told us to give her name when we purchased tickets for a boat tour in Capri so that we could receive a discount. Apparently, her father was a captain and so she knew the people working in the industry. For breakfast, she served us croissants and cappuccinos and some other sweet pastries. If you are a healthy eater or if you expect a continental breakfast, you will be disappointed. Apparently, the locals do not eat breakfast, or get something similar to what we were served so I was fine with the breakfast^^ Her apartment was a short walk to the train station (10-15 minutes). The weather was lovely and as you walked, you could see the other houses in the neighborhood. We were only only a short train ride away to Sorreno. The location is perfect because it is close enough to Sorrento yet not having to pay Sorrento hotel prices. Thank you Rachele for your hospitality! -Stayed in Sept~

"Casa Rachele is il meglio del meglio."
10/05/14 kenandjeansmith Ellesmere Port, United Kingdom
Our stay at Casa Rachele was our best ever holiday. Rachele is so warm, welcoming and friendly that from the minute you step into her house you feel like a member of her family, and a part of the community at Piano di Sorrento. Rachele will help you with planning your excursions, and has all the brochures and tickets with prices. The breakfast are delicious, and her beautiful home is scrupulously clean. Our bedroom was lovely, with a view overlooking the bay and one of the town squares, which was lit up for the festival of St Michael. The windows have a mosquito blind, as well as a drop down shutter to keep out the light, and two lots of glazing to keep out noise. It was very quiet anyway. The other bedroom is bigger, and has the most beautiful antique furniture. Rachele changes the linen and towels every two days. Rachele lets you know the best restaurants and shops, and you are extra well treated if you mention her name. We walked into the wrong restaurant by mistake once, and could really tell the difference in quality. One of Rachele's recommendations, Pepe's, has the most fantastic real Italian food. It is really atmospheric, and Pepe was a really wonderful host. Andrea the grocer sells delicious sandwiches, with local tomatoes and real parma ham and the best mozzarella. If you are looking for handmade sandals, for which the area is famous, then Andrea the shoemaker will make you a pair to fit in 10 minutes, and at around half the price of Anna Capri. He has just the same styles, and gave me the option of a non slip sole too. Some of the clothes for the more expensive shops in Sorrento and Capri etc are made in Piano. My husband bought some beautiful shirts very cheaply, and on our last day he wanted to buy a shirt for our son. The shop, Corso Italia, was closed for stocktaking, but opened especially to let him purchase the shirt. Piano di Sorrento is a lovely little town to explore, and the beach area is very beautiful, and so quiet. We met a few other tourists who were staying in Sorrento, who were really impressed, and wished they had booked for Piano. Unlike modern Sorrento, which is lovely to visit, but very busy and full of tourists, Piano is a taste of the real Italy. We really miss Rachele, and Piano. Casa Rachele is il meglio del meglio.

"Great stay for specific clientel"
10/02/14 AdonnaSR Sydney, Australia
The rooms and facilities at Casa Rachele were excellent - Rachele keeps a clean and impeccable housekeeping service and both the room and shared toilet were always spotless. Breakfast was nicely prepared always keeping in mind our preferences. I might add that Rachele is warm and caring and loves to sit and chat with her guests. She is insightful of the area and can give lots of tips of where to eat and how to get around. A few things to note: the b&b is not located in Sorrento proper but in a small town just outside, only a few train stops away. Ideal for a quiet stay but only slightly inconvenient if you want to be in the thick of the action and not have to plan your trips around the train schedule. Additionally, while Rachele is accommodating, she does cater to a more mature, responsible guest. We were at leisure to do our own schedule however she does have particular preferences that might not suit those that plan on more a spontaneous, adventurous stay. All in all, it was a wonderful few days though admittedly in the future, I will likely be looking for something geared towards younger travellers

"Lovely stay with the beautiful rachele!!"
09/30/14 Gina W Warrington, England, United Kingdom
My boyfriend and I have just got home from a weeks stay here with the lovely rachele! We absolutely loved it. When we arrived rachele gave us a ton of information for all the things we wanted to see and do and she gave us a cup of her amazing coffee. Her b + b is in the perfect location for all the local attractions like Pompeii, sorrento, the amalfi Coast and naples. The train station is just 2 mins walk away and is very cheap and fast (1 hour to naples). Piano di sorrento is a lovely little village with a few nice restaurants and shops. It's very italian and not so touristy which we liked. Sorrento is 5 mins on the train. Racheles house is beautiful and she keeps it spotlessly clean all the time. She was kind enough to ask what we like to eat for breakfast and she got us fresh pastries from the bakery every morning. She knows all the best places to eat too :) thank you rachele for looking after us on our holiday, you are a lovely lady, we will miss you and miss you making us laugh every morning! Stammi bene! Xxx

"Amazing Stay! Amazing Woman!"
09/23/14 Ammongeon Mascouche, Canada
My husband and I went to Casa Rachele at the beginning of the month for our honeymoon and we had an amazing stay! Rachele is a wonderful woman! When we got there, she sat with us and gave us all the important information and maps we needed to visit Capri, Pompei, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. She took care of us just like she was our Mama! She cooked a good breakfast every morning and sat with us to talk and learn more about us. The room and bathroom were very very very clean. Plus, the B&B is at only 3 minutes by walk from the train station. Again, we had a wonderful stay! Thanks again Rachele! Anne-Marie and Pierre-Luc
