Beautiful and very clean home

June 2024 - Villa Gaia is the perfect vacation home for large groups. It is beautiful, spacious, and very clean. The outdoor areas are perfect for relaxing and eating. The view is breathtaking.

The property managers are very kind and responsive. I highly recommend this villa. You will not be disappointed!

Excellent service!

Travel tips

  • The villa is a short drive to the grocery store and into the seaside town of Santa Maria di Castellabate. It is also a short drive into the ancient hill town of Castellabate where you can find some good restaurants and a bar.

A lovely holiday

May 2024 - We had a lovely holiday in the villa, spacious and clean. The pool was great for the children.

The views are amazing and there is so much space it was ideal or a large family.

Summer in Italy are so helpful.

May 2024 - As a family we enjoyed our stay.

Compliments to Angela, who was very helpful for us.

We were searching on the net a house near Puglia on the Adriatic coast but we found you and Villa Gaia on the Tyrrhenian coast! Summer In Italy presentation of the villa is ok, as well as the booking process handled by Luca after.

Travel tips

  • We visited Castellabate, Pompeii and Paestum, all very interesting places.
  • Santa Maria di Castellabate and San Marco di Castellabate are nice for shopping and have pleasant beaches.

Gorgeous villa with wonderful views

June 2023 - We think Villa Gaia is a gorgeous and spacious villa with a wonderful view over the village and sea โค๏ธ

It is a beautiful place, just as we were promised by the pictures when making our reservation

Everything at the Villa was clean and well taken care of, rooms were nice, everything worked and the garden with swimming pool was great ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

The staff came daily to clean the house and garden, they were helpful and very nice despite of the language barrier; with a little help from Google Translator we were able to communicate quite well

We had a wonderful vacation and we enjoyed our stay there so much! ๐ŸŒž

We found Summer in Italy in the internet as we were looking for a large Villa in Italy

Everything went smoothly with Summer in Italy and we were well informed about our reservation at all times ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Information was easy to understand and useful

We especially enjoyed the newsletter we received before trip ๐Ÿ—ž๏ธ Got us really looking forward to our trip!

Travel tips

  • We had rented cars and we took a day to drive along the Amalfi Coast and it was really worth visiting, exciting traffic ๐Ÿซฃ and beautiful scenery
  • Also Castellabate village up on the hills was charming and definitely worth visiting as well as Santa Maria di Castellabate by the sea. We spent time on the beach also and it was nice to swim in the sea.
  • We also had a special dinner at the Villa one night with local chefs ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ cooking dinner for us in our party and this was a joyous occasion! ๐Ÿฅณ

Loved this gorgeous villa

June 2023 - We really enjoyed our stay at this gorgeous villa. We were in the area for a wedding and loved the gorgeous view and lovely outdoor space.

Wonderful place!

April 2023 - The location is beautiful, halfway between Castellabate and Santa Maria di Castellabate by the sea. The villa was spotless clean, and common areas were really well-maintained and spacious. There were 12 of us and we always ate comfortably, both indoor and outdoor on the patio.

The lady who welcomed us was very kind and always available for our every request.

First time we booked with Summer In Italy. Perfect organization, even early check-in/late check-out upon our request. Strongly recommended.

Superb villa with quality service

August 2022 - Villa Gaia is a superb villa which presents a quality service. The equipment is perfectly adapted, the materials of quality and the whole in an ideal environment (view on the sea, proximity to the shops)

The owners take care of the occupants.

The villa has a large infinity pool perfectly adapted to the accommodation capacity of the house as well as a superb terrace, a solarium upstairs and all the deckchairs necessary for idleness and sunbathing For those who are not very adept swimming in the sea, the swimming pool will delight you, especially as it is perfectly maintained by the owner, just like the house.

Summer in Italy gave us complete satisfaction.

Our first contact was Abritel who redirected us to Summer in Italy. Perfect follow-up until the date of the stay.

Travel tips

  • The villa is located on the heights and accessible by road. The village of Santa Maria is a 10-minute walk down a steep path down to the shops and beaches.
  • Beaches are for the most part with rental of parasols and deckchairs.
