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

After reading all the reviews, I knew we would have a wonderful time at Villa Gisella B

5 of 5
After reading all the reviews, I knew we would have a wonderful time at Villa Gisella B... And as so many people have said, it was even better than anticipated! We had the most wonderful nine days and can only say the biggest thank you to Adriana [the owner] for her lovely apartment (impeccably presented and with everything you could possibly need) and for her warm and generous hospitality. It was simply fabulous! Summer In Italy were wonderful to deal with from start to finish. Communication was prompt, thorough and very friendly and helpful. The booking and payment processes were dealt with very smoothly. It was great to know they were only a phone call or email away in case we needed assistance of any kind. We would definitely look to work with them again if we get to travel to Italy again one day.

It is Charming in every way

5 of 5
My husband and I have just returned from a 12 night stay at Charming House. From the moment we arrived in Sant Agata we knew we had made the right choice. To start with Isabella is a wonderful Host, she gave us alot of information on the area, tips of where to go and see and eat, along with booking us tours to Amalfi/Positano and Capri. Both tours were wonderful, and great value for money. Isabella was always on hand to help but at the same time gave us the utmost privacy. She was the perfect host. The apartment was very clean, spacious with a large shower room. The facilities ie washing machine, hair dryer and oven were excellent. The temperature of the apartment stays cool without the dreaded airconditioning, due to the fact it has such thick walls and the sun isnt shining on it from late afternoon, a welcome relief from those scorching days. Sant Agata is a great town, very Italian with wonderful restaurants. The bus is 1.30 Euro to Sorrento, be careful the taxi is 50 Euros, the walk to Sorrento from Sant Agata is all downhill and very scenic, it is only 3km compared to 8 km on the bus. We did that twice.The walk up to the village is steep, steps and road, the supermarket is at the top, however we got our time down from 10mins to 7mins and that is with my husband needing two new hips. We did and saw alot, but also had some chill out days at Charming house. Compared to the constant noise of cars and beeping in Sorrento our only noise pollution was the sound of birds, dogs, and the odd car, I would recommend Charming House and Isabella to anyone looking for a holiday with charm, rest and relaxation
