Living the high life in Sorrento Peninsula holiday rentals

Poking out of the side of Campania like a gnarled olive branch, the Sorrento Peninsula bisects the gulfs of Salerno and Naples. It's blanketed in citrus groves and peppered with pastel-painted towns, dropping to dramatic coves of pebbles and rising to the peaks of the carved Lattari Mountains. On clear days, as you wiggle around the hairpin bends towards the world-famous Amalfi Coast, you can spy out the silhouette of Capri island and the hulking top of Mount Vesuvius. It all adds up to create a romantic, stirring setting for honeymoons and Italian adventures. Search for Sorrento Peninsula holiday lettings today if that sounds like the sort of thing you're after this year.

The main attractions on the Sorrento Peninsula

A mix of culture and nature sits right on the doorstep of Sorrento Peninsula holiday lettings. The main attractions start with the stunning Marina Grande of Sorrento town itself, a truly Instagram-worthy inlet where ice-cream-coloured mansions overlook a huddle of fishing boats on the shore. The nearby Museo Bottega is great for tracing the long heritage of furniture-making that hails from this coast. And then there's the Museo Correale di Terranova, rich in Far Eastern vases and eerie Egyptian relics. All that's before even leaving the main town. Once outside, you can discover the teeming rock reefs of the Punta Campanella Marine Reserve or drive straight for the Amalfi Coast – a breathtaking stretch of shore that's a UNESCO site to boot.
