Description

Positioned on a cliff-side overlooking the stunning Bay of Naples, La Minervetta is a beautiful boutique hotel with 12 rooms moments away from the centre of Sorrento. This hotel is a great base to explore the culture and history the area has to offer.

La Minervetta was originally built in the 1950s. It is set high up on a sea cliff overlooking a quaint old fishing village, surrounded by orange and lemon groves. It boasts spectacular views over the Bay of Naples and is close to the centre of Sorrento.

This boutique hotel consists of 12 bedrooms, each with sea views and many with floor to ceiling windows. Rooms are individually designed with a contemporary and colourful interior. The hotel's main suite has two balconies and a huge walk in shower.

There is no restaurant at La Minervetta, a buffet breakfast is served in a beautiful kitchen area where guests can help themselves to fresh breads, meats and cheeses as well bacon and eggs to order. The positioning of the hotel means that guests are moments from the cafes, pizzerias, bars and Michelin starred restaurants that Sorrento has to offer.

For those who are feeling active a visit to Pompeii is a must when staying here. For a change of scenery hop the hydrofoil which departs regularly throughout the day to Capri.
