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.

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!

"Comfortable, clean and convenient"
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!

"Very knowledgeable and caring host"
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. We would love to stay here again!

"Lovely B&B"
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 :)

Very nice B&B really close to the railway station of Piano di Sorrento. We stayed 2 nights and it was really easy to get around and visit Sorrento, Capri and the Costiera Amalfitana. Sig.ra Rachele is really helpful and friendly. The house is clean and tidy. Just outside there are shops and nice restaurants that are not too touristic so not expensive.

"Amazing Stay with Rachele"
07/26/15 Liana B
My best friend and I found this adorable B&B in Piano di Sorrento and we were completely satisfied with our stay. Rachele is the sweetest Italian woman ever and she goes out of her way to make your stay wonderful. She gives extremely helpful traveling trips and tells you exactly where to go especially if you're on a budget. Wherever she tells you to eat, GO! Le Tre Arcate had the most amazing peppered muscles, very fresh and absolutely delicious. Osteria Arcadia has a cannelloni dish to die for. If you don't try what she suggests you haven't lived! And just like her incredible hospitality, these restaurants had perfect service. Our experience here exceeded our expectations. If I ever come back to Sorrento, I will definitely come back to Casa Rachele!

"Dinner at Peppes resturant"
07/22/15 Minnycone Province of Rome, Italy
From the start after meeting Rachele things just got better and better, her advice on when and where to go was a great help. We love food, but authentic food. Rachele likes to recommend good wholesome food venues. We had great food at the local Deli, Esposito, fresh rolls with prociutto and fine cheeses, exquisite fruit and drinks a must for a busy sight seeing day. Dinner at Peppe's was our highlight, no menu but fantastic fresh dishes made with local produce. We waited with anticipation for our next meal. Paula and Peppe made us feel very special in their restaurant. Alessandro at Le Tre Arcate also made us beautiful fresh seafood dishes. When travelling it can be very difficult finding authentic food at reasonable prices, we were very very happy with Rachele's advice. Rachele is very proud of her region and wants her guests to see her Italy. I think she achieved this with us.

Casa Rachele was excellent. When we arrived, Rachele was waiting for us and she was more than nice. She sat down with us and explained everything there was to do in the area, and even gave us all of the maps/pamphlets for each thing to do. She has a couple of deals in the area to eat at where you get a little discount if you mention her name, which is also very nice. The house is very nice and clean. It is found on the 4th floor of an apartment building, but there is a wonderful working elevator so that is not an issue at all. Rachele cleans the apartment every day so it is very immaculate. She cooks a delicious Italian breakfast every morning between 7-9am (it is a sweet breakfast, consisting of cakes) and she has you tell her what time you want to eat because she times it so you can eat it when it is just shortly out of the oven. The best part of staying here was the AC. It was the first time on our trip where we actually slept cold! It was wonderful, considering that all the days have been 95-100 plus degrees Fahrenheit. We would definitely recommend this Bed and Breakfast!

Casa Rachele is unlike any other hotel! Rachele, the owner of the hotel, is fabulous! She is truly an incredible hostess. Her home is beautiful, with a true Italian feel and a beathtaking view of Sorrento. She makes you a traditional Italian breakfast every morning to your specific taste. She was so welcoming and helped my friend and I pick out what to see on the Almafi coast and helped us schedule our transportation and other logisitics. Since she has grown up in Sorrento, she knows everyone in the town and she would call ahead of the places we were going so that once we arrived we were welcomed like old friends. My friend and I are both women in our early twenties and Rachele would wait up each night to make sure we got home safe which meant the world to us! Rachele is truly incredible and if you don't stay here while you are in Sorrento, you have truly missed out! I recommend this B&B to everyone I know who is going to the Almafi coast.

My friend and I really enjoyed our stay at Casa Rachele! Rachele has a very beautiful home (passed down from her dear father), and it is located very close to the train station. Rachele is a very sweet woman, and she really blew us away with her organization! She sat us down and gave us the details on trains, sights, dinner recommendations, and more! She even gave us some guidebooks and showed us samples of tickets/passes so we would know what to look for. I really enjoyed our conversations with her. The rooms are spacious, the bathroom is clean - what more can you ask for? We miss you, Rachelle! Thank you so much for having us in your home!

"Wonderful Stay at Rachel's, The Sea Captain's Daughter."
06/08/15 Noah W Toronto, Canada
Never have I stayed at a hostel, B&B or Airbnb that was more deserving of a good review then Casa Rachelle. The accommodation is perfect for any traveler looking to take a break from the louder hostel atmosphere and appreciate the genuine, relaxing perspective of the Italian countryside along the Amalfi Coast. The location was ideal as Piano was only 2 train stops away from Sorrento (5 minutes), and the town itself had the best cheap food I've experienced thus far in Italy (3eu for a full pizza). While the location and experience was great, Rachel herself deserves the most credit as it was her kindness and hospitality that made this place special. She cooked a delicious sweet breakfast every morning, she knew the bus and train schedules by heart, she had the best recommendations, and she spoke great english, a trait one truly appreciates after having spent enough time struggling to communicate with the locals down here. I have never written a trip advisor review for anyone before and I have been travelling for 3 years, this place lives up to the hype. Thank you so much Rachel, the sailors daughter, I will never forget my stay at Casa Rachelle and I highly recommend it.

My, Heather, and I are from Fort Wayne, Indiana, and stayed with Rachele at her B & B for 4 nights while visiting the Sorrento Peninsula and Naples Bay area. She provides a wonderful breakfast, very helpful advice, and a clean, comfortable room to stay in. The B & B is in Piano, a quiet town that is just a short train ride away from Sorrento and Pompei. We highly recommend visiting Capri and Pompei if your time is limited--two beautiful and unforgettable places!

My sister and I traveled to Italy recently and had a fabulous time staying at Casa Rachele. From the moment Rachele welcomed us into her beautiful home we felt well taken care of and she treated us like family. She took the time to sit with us and answer all of our questions and showed us what to do in Sorrento and the surrounding areas. She provided us with brochures and money saving opportunities in Capri and the Amalfi coast. She also gave us excellent restaurant recommendations in Piano di Sorrento. She also let us come early and keep our bags in her house so we could have more time to sightsee. The town is lovely and quiet. Casa Rachele is a short walk to the train station and a short 5 minute train ride to Sorrento. The train was reasonable and inexpensive compared to other ways of traveling around the area. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was shared and there was never a problem using it and it was very clean as well. The breakfast in the morning was wonderful and prepared by Rachele-yogurt, juices, tea, coffee, cappuccino, crossaints and other assorted cookies. Rachele is one of the most genuine, kind hearted and courteous hostesses we have ever had. We are very grateful that we found this wonderful place to stay. If I ever have the opportunity to travel to Sorrento again I will stay in this place again without any hesitation! Thank you Rachele for your hospitality and for making our trip to Sorrento wonderful! Kristina and Melanie
