Rachele is great. She rents out two bedrooms in her home, one very nice shared bathroom between the two bedrooms. Big living room and balcony. There is a nice kitchen for communal use. Actually in Piano di Sorrento, which is two stops on the train before Sorrento. Both are very nice, with Piano di Sorrento being a calmer town. Great restaurants and bars within steps of Rachele's home. Thank you for a wonderful stay sweet mama!

Thank you so much for the nice review my dearest American,brother and sister. THINGS TO NOTE: USE OF THE KITCHEN IS JUST FOR THE FRIDGE BY REQUEST. LIVING ROOM IS JUST FOR THE BREAKFAST IN THE MORNING. Big hugs from Piano di Sorrento, Rachele

Case Rachele was fantastic! Rachele is the one of the sweetest women you will ever meet and she treats you like her children! She made our stay in sorrento amazing by telling us the best way to do all the things we wanted, the best local eateries (like this local grocery store with amazing sandwiches), talking to us about her life, and just always seeking to make us as comfortable as possible! If you are in sorrento, stay with Casa Rachele, you will not regret it.

Rachele is so sweet and super helpful. Everyday she would help explain to us how to get to places on the Amalfi Coast. Our room and the bathroom was really clean, and she cleaned them everyday. The breakfast was also really good. It's the perfect place to stay if you want to explore the surrounding cities! 100% recommendable!

Nice room in quiet apartment owned by Rachele, who is very helpful and accommodating. She provided maps, guidebooks, and a delicious breakfast. This apartment is a short walk from the train and we were able to easily get to Positano and Pompeii. We enjoyed our time and would stay here again.

Prior to our arrival Rachele provided us with very helpful directions on how to get to her house from Naples, and upon arrival she could not have been more helpful- she compiled a provisional itinerary for our stay according to what we wanted to do/see with clear details on public transport routes etc- it made her house the perfect place to stay for anyone unfamiliar with the area to see the amalfi Coast, Positano and other surrounding areas. She couldn't have been more helpful.

Casa Rachele was the best bed and breakfast I have ever stayed in. It was clear upon arrival what sort of accommodation was going to be provided. Rachele immediately offered us cold drinks and gave us information about local restaurants, tourist attractions and modes of transportation. Every morning, Rachele made us a filling and delicious breakfast. She was always available for any questions or concerns we had and was just the sweetest lady. The apartment itself was beautiful and clean.

My friend and I had a lovely stay at Casa Rachele a couple of weeks ago on our tour of Italy. Her home is located very close to the train station, and she provided very good directions for getting around and site seeing. She answered all of our questions and more. She takes good care of her guests and wants them to have the best experience. Her dinner recommendation lead us to one of the best meals of my life at Pepe's. Her home is beautiful and the rooms are a good size. I would recommend it!

Rachele and her home were absolutely perfect for our trip to Sorrento. We had been backpacking for two and a half weeks, and staying at Rachele's was exactly what we needed: relaxing, quiet, and comfortable. I liked that it was located outside of Sorrento - less tourists. She sat us down for almost an hour when we got there to make sure we knew everything we could on the area, from food to sightseeing to beaches. Her B&B is a standard to which all others should strive for. Thank you Rachele!

We are a couple travelling from Guelph, Ontario, Canada. Knowing that we wanted to visit the Sorrento region but on a budget, we found Rachelle's bed and breakfast and couldn't be happier. Piano di Sorrento is a beautiful town with georgeous views of the bay, and the b&b is centrally located within walking distance to all your needs. Rachelle will gladly provide you with all of the maps, guide books, and the best suggestions for authentic local cuisine. The house is beautiful!

Rachele was a wonderful hostes! She was so kind and helpful when I arrived and gave me pamphlets and information on things to do in Sorrento and Capri. She will make you a homemade breakfast each morning for free! The only negative thing about the hostel is that it is not actually in Sorrento. It is in a little town outside of Sorrento called Piano do Sorrento. You will have to take the train to get to Sorrento or Pomeii, but it is not expensive (about 4 euros).

Thank you so much for the nice review. The day before your arrival I e-mailed you the directions.You already knew that you would have been hosted in my house,situated in PIANO DI SORRENTO.On the site too you can clearly read my B&B is in PIANO DI SORRENTO.On TripAdvisor ,you can see the same. The ticket from Piano di Sorrento to Sorrento, costs 1,20 euro, Piano di Sorrento to Pompei is 2,40 euro. Piano di Sorrento is 5 minutes far from Sorrento,by train. Kind regards,Rachele

We are a retired American couple and wanted to emphasize Casa Rachele's B&B as excellent for the older traveler. Rachele was in effect our guide for this lovely area. With her instructions we visited Pompeii, Herculano and Oplontis with ease. We enjoyed the Amalfi Coast and Ravella. I would like to return to Rachele's with my mother and visit Capri's. If my mother gets tired out staying in Rachele's is restful and her place is a joy. High ceilings, cool marble floors, elegant breakfast: perfect!

Rachele is very diligent and organized. We had a very tight tour schedule while we were with her and she always had breakfast ready exactly when we had asked in order to make our tour groups. We would stay here again.

We called Rachele our Italian mom! She is completely selfless and kind. You literally stay at her house! The space is very clean, the breakfast is on point, and you really feel comfortable and at home. It is located a couple train stops away from Sorrento, but we were pleased with the location because Rachele is wonderful and she recommends good spots to eat nearby. Would happily come here again! I am sorry Rachele that it has taken this long to write s review. My brother and I send hugs!
