If you want to enjoy Italy, Sorrento area in the best possible way, do not hesitate to stay at this B&B. We had a fantastic week, in the heart of Meta, close to Italians and italian way of life. Family Marciano was really caring, giving all informations you need, making a big breakfast with everything the children like, and making us feel at home. Evenings you can eat at their Restaurant around the Corner, great homemade italian Food. And, the little tiny beach from Meta, which is actually one of the best at the Sorrento coast, is 10 minutes away. Buy the selfmade limoncello von Nino at the Restaurant and enjoy the evening at the balcony watching the see... This room has an amazing cheap price. No luxury Hotel would have been a more beautiful experience than staying at Relax!

We found our host so very accomodating. We loved our room. I was with my wife and our two children. It was so easy to get to the beach and to the circumvisuviana. The food and people were absoulutly wonderful. Guiseppina picked us up at the train station and made us feel right at home. The family has a cafe just down the road where you have breakfast they also serve a great supper. My wifes family is from Salerno actually 2 hours from there in a beautiful moutain side 2500 year old town. Guiseppina daughter and husband worked without giving to help Gina my wife track down our family whom meet us in town and drove us for the most increadable day in the country side. This was truly the highlight of a 3 week trip to Europe and would not have happend without our hosts. We thank you so much and sorry for takeing so long to post this. With that said it is like it was just yesterday. Thankyou

My girlfriend and I chose to stay at this B&B based on previous trip advisor reviews and I am glad to say it did not disappoint! Very welcoming family who offered to pick us up from the train station prior to our arrival. Lovely 17th century building that was very peaceful. Rooms were very clean and had everything we wanted for our stay including a kitchenette. Breakfast was served in the family owned cafe 50m down the road, was basic serving croissants and breads but the coffee was the best i'd ever had! When we mentioned we were going to Capri for the day and had to set off early the next morning we were given a huge breakfast pack up that could have fed a small army! We also ate in the cafe one evening, the food and not forgetting the homemade Limoncello was amazing! Giuseppina also found my wallet that I had left in the room when we had returned to the UK and kindly offered to send it back to me! Meta itself is a lovely small old town and had the best beach in the region that we found by far. Perfect location for visiting Sorrento and the surrounding areas, would definitely stay again!

The accommodation was a B&B and not a hotel, so some of the questions above are not applicable. The living room/bedroom was a the same room but with a staircase leading to a mezzanine floor which looked down onto the living room. This was fine but at night got very hot. The windows had steel mossie grills over them but really could do with air conditioning. It was very hot and sticky on that mezzanine floor. We asked for a fan but the only one available was being used by the other guests but it was given to us when these guests left. So for two nights you had some reasonable sleep. Breakfast was good consisting of juice, tea/coffee, croissants/jams etc.

We stayed at Relax B&B 17/09 - 23/09/2011 and it was our favourite accommodation by far in Italy. The hospitality of Giuseppina, her daughter and husband was incredibly warm and genuine - they were very helpful during our entire stay. The accommodation as noted in other reviews was excellent - very clean, roomy and amazing value for money. The meals at their cafe were also excellent value and thoroughly recommend the calarmari not to mention the lemoncello!! The included breakfast was very generous and unlike a lot of places served very good cafe ie any style of coffee you preferred. I would strongly recommend this gem to anyone and advise meta di sorrento over sorrento as a base as not as touristy and you get more of an authentic atmosphere away from those endless hordes of tourist buses in sorrento!! Trains and buses are easily accessible all within short walking distance from B&B - so no problem getting around. Giuseppina even took us with our luggage to the train station on our day of departure. Im only sorry that its taken me so long to provide this reivew as it was such a wonderful experience and I hope to return soon to Meta and the Amalfi coast.

My family (two boys 4 and 1 year old and my wife and me) visited B&B Relax in late June and used 4-bed apartment. Relax is excellent accommodation situated in authentic old Mediterranean house at the end of narrow street. Apartment has excellent view at garden in front and sea at side of terrace where you can enjoy beautiful sunsets each evening. Family that runs B&B is very hospitable. Apartment is near to nice beach and only 5 min drive to Sorrento centre. As bottom line, accommodation is very conferrable, neat, clean and nicely furnished with nice/authentic surroundings.

Positive point: excellent relationship between price and quality. The B&B owners Giuseppina and his husband are very friendly and helpful.The breakfast is at the husband's bar 200 meters far from the room with a wonderful view.easy to reach.We stay there a day more. Negative point: they consider the B&B as a flat so they give you few bathtowels 1Th day and they don't clean the room or change the sheets.

The b&b is near bus and train staion. Bus is 2-3 minutes away from the b&b and the train about 10-15 min walk. Is a great location if you want to visit sorrento, capri and the amalfi coast. Giuseppina, the host, and her daughter were very kind, picked us up from the bus station we had a the quadruple room with an amazing view to the golf. The room was big, all the facilities, but the bathroom can be cleaner. The entrance is not so pleasant, but once is your inside is very nice. The breakfast was not so great, too many sweets. All people in Meta were very nice, made our holiday so great We had a wonderful stay in B&B Relax

We are very satisfied of our stay at this B&B. Very warm welcoming from the owners, including their daughter who speaks english perfectly. She was of a great help and very warm. We enjoyed very much having the breakfast at the owner's restaurant a few meters away from the B&B. We choosed the B&B hoping to feel a family atmosphere and this is exactly what we got. For travellers hoping to visit Naples area, a GPS would be interesting to have It will ease very much the driving around. We recommand to visit the Amalfi Cost, very nice, very old. Italiens are very welcoming and believe me the owners of the B&B are very welcoming.

Meta is a beach side suburb of Sorrento, away from the tourist crowds, with Sorrento being easily reached by train or bus. Relax ia a lovely, clean, spacious apartment with views over of the Bay of Naples from the main room and the balcony. Giuseppina runs Relax and lives on the property with her family. She met us at Meta station and drove us to Relax which was a great help as we arrived at night, and it would have been difficult to locate without her assistance. The apartment has cooking facilities and Giuseppina anticipates your needs with all the necessary cooking utensils together with olive oil and vinegars provided. There is also ample crockery and glassware supplied. In addition you are able to use the family's laundry facilities which is an added bonus. Breakfast is served at a local bar which is run by Giuseppina's husband. We also spent many nights at this bar enjoying a drink, a great meal whilst overlooking the Bay of Naples. Giuseppina is able to answer all your questions, and really ensures that your stay at Relax is enjoyable. We would definitely return to Relax.

This is a spacious studio appartment with a balcony that overlooks the sea (beautiful sunsets!). Breakfast is not provided, although there is a hob for cooking and utensils and basic foods for cooking are provided. There is also a supermarket close by and the restaurants in Meta are relatively cheap. The beach is about 10-15 mins steep walk away. The appartment owner, Giuseppina is very friendly and will help you with any queries. She also gave us a lift to the coach stop with our heavy lugguage. Meta is an excellent base for exploring the bay of Naples and the Amalfi Coast.

If you want to be away from the crowds in Sorrento, the small village of Meta is just a quick bus ride away. Quiet and peacful. The room at Relax was adequate. We had a nice balcony to look over a garden and we could see the sea nearby. There is no breakfast. So why is it Relax bed and breakfast? A good bargain to be in the solitude.

Nous avons passé un excellent sejour. La propriétaire et son mari esont très sympatiques. Meta di sorrento est près de tout, la gare du circumvesuviana est proche ( 400m)et permet de se deplacer facilement dans les environs et différents centre touristiques. La chambre est très grande et très pratique, tout est mis a disposition. Giuseppina est très sympa et est toujours prête à rendre service et à donner des explications sur les environs. GRAZIE Giuseppina :)

We would highly recommend this studio as a wonderful base to explore the Sorrento region. It is conveniently located in Meta near a bus stop which connects to all transportation throughout the region. The hostess met us at the train station and transported us to her home where the studio is located. The studio overlooks the Bay of Naples through a neighbor's garden. It is located near local restuarants. We would highly recommend it for a flavor of a local studio villa and if we return to the Sorrento area, would be pleased to stay there again.
