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.

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.

It was a fantastic location with amazing views of the bay of Sant'Agnello and Sorento to one side an the mountains to the other. Orange and lemon groves surround the property and the owners live on the ground floor. They are charming people and very helpful. The villa is well equipped, safe box, iron etc and a large furnished balcony around 3 sides. Air con rooms. Pool area is equipped with parasols and loungers and a shower. Hotel La Pace is opposite and ideal for pick ups for any trips you book. It's a short walk down the hill to Sant Agnelo town. Plenty of shops, bars and the train station. Sorento is 30 mins walk, 5 mins drive or one stop on the train. There is a small shop 2 minutes walk down the hill which is handy for essentials. Villa Fillide was a great place to stay and we would definitely stay there again. We could not fault Summer in Italy. Communication was excellent and details of the villa and how to find it were accurate and useful.
