On the tip of the Sorrento Peninsula, La Sorrentina is a group of agritourist self-catering apartments, near the beach on the Amalfi Coast.
La Sorrentina, with its striking sunny yellow walls, original exposed stone and marine blue paintwork, fits into this pretty picture perfectly. When you first approach La Sorrentina’s self-catering apartments, climbing steps through an intriguing and attractive tumble of grassy terraces, lemon groves and flower-filled gardens, you have to look up to see the centuries old house, at the top, sittingjust in front of the lovely church of Nerano. Turn around and, with the house at your back, you will have your breath taken away by the amazing sea views of Sorrento. It is a stunning spot.
The pool at La Sorrentina sits on a lower terrace and is a delight. There are so many terraces on so many different levels that there is lots of space for families and couples alike to relax and we at Long Travel love the relaxed atmosphere of community. There are few house rules though at La Sorrentina self-catering villas – you are meant to feel at home and use the spaces as you most enjoy. You might find wine-tasting on one terrace one day or aperitivi being served the next. One thing is for certain – from almost any terrace, you will have absolutely stunning views of one of the best bits of coastal beach in the world.
Only about 15km from Sorrento, Nerano is a delightful fishing village-cum-small resort. The road winds down through Nerano to the beach of Marina Del Cantone, at the bottom. There and in the village itself, you will find some interesting beaches, bars and restaurants, including one with two Michelin stars, called Quattro Passi. Apart from the “fine dining” options, there are others, which are traditional and equally delicious, not least of which is La Sorrentina’s own trattoria, which consistently gathers accolades.The trattoria is a tasty treat and far too convenient for your own good. Using ingredients from La Sorrentina’s own organic garden and local trusted suppliers, you will love the tasty, wholesome, typically Italian cuisine. This is what Long Travel go to Italy for and you won’t be disappointed. The food is irresistible, so be warned...
