Sant'Agnello,(Sorrento) Naples area, Italy - Sant'Agnello and Sorrento, tips and highlights, how to discover the true Italian lifestyle!

Everybody knows Sorrento as one of the must important resort in Italy. Sorrento and Sant'Agnello belong to the same touristic area. The most spectacular views are from Belvedere of Colli di Fontanelle overlooking the Amalfi coast.

The most spectacular views in town, are from Belvedere of Villa Miragalli and La Marinella, where there is a Restaurant Bar where we suggest having a drink at sunset. In the historical centre of Sant'Agnello you can have a walk and have a chat with local very friendly people. At beginning of September there is a well know local festival in the district of Colli di Fontanelle, right on the top of the hills. The local countryman arrange a festival that last for a week, where you can taste a wide selection of agricultural products, wines, hand made cheese, biggest fruits and vegetable contest, and several happenings, every evening famous pop singer and groups entertain the people who have part to this really Italian festival, we suggest to visit to feel the soul of the local people.

For those who love to walk we suggest to have an excursion to Sant Elia, an amazing path trough the woods overlooking the Amalfi coast sea and Li Galli Isles, the path begin very close to Villa Miragalli.

This itinerary is only a short part of the old route linking Torca and Colli di Fontanelle passing along the foot of the cliff of the Malacoccola; moreover, a side branch of this mule track leads to Punta Sant’Elia. where there used to be a tonnara (tunny-fishing plant).

The path begins at Belvedere (that means, and is, "outlook") at the end of a dead end road 800m off Colli di Fontanelle. Nowadays you can only walk this trail for about 2km till a gate blocks the way.

To start with the path descends gently eastward overlooking Vettica di Praiano, then turns right, towards the sea becoming steeper. You zigzag down till you reach the rocky pinnacle that was once the western pillar of the famous Arco di Sant'Elia, or Arch of the Queen (Giovanna).

You walk through the typical bushes and flowers of the garigue and a few trees of the Mediterranean scrub. After this natural arch the path is almost level for a while and then you'll come to the only fork of this itinerary: turn right. Climb a few meters and keep walking towards the other pinnacle, bigger and squatter than the previous one, locally known as Pizzo 'e Cardillo. Go around it and then descend more steps and walk for a few more hundred meters.

At this point you are in front of the gate that blocks our walk so start thinking about climbing back up. Actually the stretch downhill from Pizzo 'e Cardillo doesn't add anything special to this excursion, consequently I suggest you stop just after the pinnacle. After a due pause, walk slowly back up enjoying all the views towards the sea and the impressive cliff of Malacoccola, as well as the colours and the fragrances of the luxuriant vegetation.

We hope that this little guide will be helpful. Written by Bruno Acampora - Owner of Property 18114 in Sant'Agnello, Italy

The kitchen is enough to cook light meals. The real selling point about this apartment is the outside space and garden. It is spacious with numerous areas to sit and relax. There are many fruit trees and making orange juice every morning from fresh oranges from outside was a real treat. The location is private and relaxed whilst the area can be explored by car quite easily - although you need to be a confident driver! The host was always on hand for anything and made the stay very relaxing. A mini supermarket is very close and useful for the odd bottle of cheap local red wine! A lovely place to stay and would definitely recommend it.

For my wife and I it was the best of the 4 apartments, with a small private patio where, thanks to the shade provided a vine covered and pergola and hedges, we enjoyed all of our meals and some relaxation time. The apartment is well equipped, with plenty of space for 2, but would be more cramped with 4. The pool is ideal for cooling off after a hot day, and has plenty of sun-beds and umbrellas. The roof terrace of the main building has stunning views over the Bay of Sorrento and up to the surrounding hills. Location wise it is a little way (10 minutes) from the main Corso Italia, and is a bit of a climb after a long day, but a good excuse for an extra glass of wine to be walked off! Sant'Agnello di Sorrento is very convenient, being well served by the Circumvesuviana railway between Sorrento and Naples as well as frequent and regular buses, so we enjoyed not having to drive ourselves. All in all a highly recommended rental property. Lucia, the owner, and her husband are great hosts, friendly, helpful and informative. Do not change!

The pool was the centre of attraction for our 7-year old and cannot fault anything ... even Pappa come to check on the tomatoes adjacent to the villa and gave us a lift down to the town centre .. something authentically like from an olive-oil advert on the television ... he was 83 years old! Highly recommended as an amazing place to stay. The property is large and loads of room for everyone! Highly recommended.
