Sorrentine Peninsula...from above Publié le 1 juin 2013 sur Hotels.com
If tired of the churn of buses, hotels, and groups of people crowding the main roads along the Sorrentine peninsula, then do yourselves a favor and stay here for as long as you can. The location is near the middle of the peninsula, so you are well away from the tourist crowd and into the places where life happens. It also affords you the ability to get to either side of the peninsula relatively quickly. A short hike up starting from across the street leads to an unbeatable view of the whole area, nice for sunsets. The clean B&B itself is fabulous: built on the foundations of a very old castle, with killer views. Most importantly, the hospitality provided by the family who runs the B&B was the best we'd had in Italy. You will quickly recognize that they are very proud of the local culture and want to share it with you, including their homemade foods like the jam and cheese served up at the plentiful breakfast (yummy), accompanied by local produce, and served on the terrace if you like. Don't be surprised if a few other goodies from the family's kitchen and garden work their way to the table. Doable by bus, but we had rented a car in Naples and drove the mountain roads with no problems, go slow and honk lots. A very good restaurant a few houses down, packed with locals. The family are involved in the local community and want to share the “greatest hits” of the Sorrentine peninsula as well as their little part of it, but they also want to learn about you. We'll be back!
