Your Italian Holiday, Our Labour of Love
Villa Carolina is a dream come true: an intimate and friendly B&B where guests can unwind and experience a holiday in the "Slow Travel" style. Our villa offers a unique sense of place for travellers who like to feel at home while on holiday and experience the authentic local culture... for those who prefer experiencing the true spirit of this coastline over a quick selfie, for those who prefer the genuine flavor of home-cooked pasta and garden-fresh produce over fast food.
It is this type of guest who is drawn to a spot like Priora, our tiny hamlet in the hills outside Sorrento with its feel of a lived-in Italian town, and we welcome you to Villa Carolina! We hope your stay here with us will be a soothing break from the stress of daily life, and you'll return home relaxed and recharged.

3 Reasons to Choose Villa Carolina
Discover Villa Carolina
Villa Carolina is located in Priora, a hilltop 2.5 miles (4 km) from Sorrento. We suggest arriving by car or renting a car for the duration of your stay as the public bus passes only every 2 hours. Follow the directions in the "Getting Here" PDF instead of following a GPS device, which often sends travellers on narrow, bumpy roads.
If you are arriving by public transportation, please call the day before your arrival to reserve our
free shuttle service which runs from 3:30 to 8 pm.
Free shuttle to and from Sorrento: convenient and environmentally conscious!
Our free shuttle service has two routes departing from the train station in Sorrento: one directly at the villa and the other just 500 meters from the entrance.
Service only upon request and according to a fixed schedule. Please book in advance for your day of arrival or departure, or to reach the center of Sorrento during your stay.
