Make a holiday rental villa or accommodation in Sorrento, Italy your home away from home

Sorrento clings gamely onto a cliff top overhanging the Tyrrhenian Sea in the Bay of Naples. Its combination of sun, scenery and cuisine has helped make Sorrento the premium location to take a holiday villa on the Neapolitan Riviera, where life revolves around the numerous restaurants and pavement cafes of the main square, the Piazza Tasso. Taking accommodation in Sorrento means that you can decide to enjoy a hectic exploration of the main tourist attractions of Camapania, a leisurely indulgence of all the finest food, wine and sightseeing in the town itself or a busy but relaxing holiday on the beaches of the Bay of Naples and the Almalfi coast. A Sorrento holiday genuinely is exactly what you make of it!

Things to do in Sorrento, Italy

When you first arrive in Sorrento accommodation, you will almost certainly be overcome by the views and the shear number of historical sites.

                                                                                                  I cannot rate this studio apartment too highly. From even before I arrived, Carla was trying her best to be helpful, even offering to come to where the coach from the airport stops to pick me up as I had hurt my back a few days earlier. In the end I was able to walk the short distance from the coach stop to the studio without any trouble. Carla and her husband greeted me warmly, showed me where everything was, and said that if I needed anything to just pop down to see them. The studio is up a flight of steps on the top floor of the building. It’s light and airy, and has a superb sunny terrace overlooking the surrounding lemon and olive groves. You could easily be in the middle of the countryside, but are only a five-minute stroll from the railway station and main bus stops and just another five minutes to the centre of Sorrento. An ideal situation, quiet and peaceful, especially at night, but very close to the centre of things. At the end of my first full day, I returned to find a large bowl on my doorstep with eggs from Carla’s chickens, a fair number of tomatoes and a dozen or so plums, all from her own garden. The facilities in the studio cover everything that you’re likely to need. It would be fair to say that if you wanted to cook a three-course gourmet dinner, then you might be a little limited with two gas rings and a microwave, but I managed to cook most days without any trouble, saving myself a great deal of money in the process from not eating out in Sorrento's somewhat pricey restaurants. The microwave has a grill facility, meaning you should be able to make toast with it, but having achieved abject failure on that score I went down to ask Carla how to do it. She said she’d check, but on my return from the day out I found a toaster had arrived in the studio. Excellent! Carla and her family take a lot of trouble to ensure their guests have a trouble-free stay and the studio makes an ideal base to explore Sorrento and the surrounding area. I’ll be back!

It has everything you could need for a superb holiday, very well appointed. All our contact with Gerardo from our initial enquiry right through the booking process was made very easy by his prompt replies to our messages. When we arrived in Sorrento to be greeted at the station by Gerardo's father Francesco and driven the short distance to the apartment we were made to feel really welcome - the gifts of limoncello, milk. ice creams. olive oil and figs was a lovely surprise and very generous. The views from all sides of the terrace are fantastic and the location is brilliant, only a very short walk away from all of Sorrento's attractions, restaurants etc. Thank you Gerardo and your parents for a fantastic holiday - we hope to return in the future!
