Overview

At first glance, La Minervetta’s cliff-clinging location above the fishing village of Marina Grande and its spectacular views over the Bay of Naples from the pool, the rooms and sun terrace appear to be the hotel’s most striking feature.

 

Once inside, however, you quickly realise that this hotel has been conceived and nurtured with an extraordinary attention to detail and passion for design.

 

Quirky, stylish and contemporary, every corner and surface is adorned with local objets d’arts, vintage collections, books, Vietri pottery and fabrics in attention-grabbing colours and all assembled to create a near-perfect ambience.

 

A large lounge, dining room and kitchen, which open on to a terrace with equally dramatic views, add to the wonderfully relaxed almost home-from-home atmosphere.

 

Outside, a small Mediterranean garden, with plunge pool, tumbles down the cliff to Marina Grande below.

Rooms

Each of the 12 individually-styled Mediterranean-style rooms has views via huge picture windows over the Neapolitan Gulf so you can lie back and bask in the view before you even get up in the morning!

Dining

There is no restaurant as such but a Mediterranean-style brunch with hot and cold food is laid out in the fabulous breakfast room each morning and the restaurants and bars in Marina Grande can all be reached via a private staircase.

Map

Maison La Minervetta is conveniently located just a 15-minute walk from Sorrento’s historic centre, above Marina Grande, an old fishing village which has escaped urbanization and retained a wonderfully rustic charm. From Sorrento, you can take a hydrofoil to Capri, Ischia, Naples and Positano and buses to the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii. Restaurants, homes and shops, rising along the curve of the rocks and the colourful booths on the pier, are all architecturally consistent, creating a harmonious neon free scene. The port's secluded atmosphere stems from its sheltered position, created by promontory which separates Sorrento from this hidden harbor.

This is the third occasion that Antonio has organised an Italian holiday for me. As it was a Birthday celebration involving a party of 10, the arrangements were complex, involving a villa, guides and attendance at the Palio on July 2nd. Without exception everything went exactly as planned. The recommended villa on the Montestigliano Estate, south west of Siena, was wonderful. Our guide made sure we had a full understanding of the history and culture of the Palio which meant that, with a spectacular view over the Campo from the apartment booked by Antonio, we were able to appreciate the event that much more. We shall certainly be going back to Italy with Expertoitaly.read more

Antonio with his meticulous planning and caring service has been solely responsible for the best Italian holidays we have had. His ability to offer excellent hotel accommodation which provides for every need and requirement is second to none . Hotels that are not main stream , that provide high quality of service in excellent locations are one of Antonio’s strength. It’s great to have a provider that know and understands his market.

July 2018 _________________________________ Have just completed another 10 day holiday arranged by Antonio at Expert to Italy. We went with Antonio's suggestion and spent 2 days at Matera and then the remainder in Pisciotta in the Cilento. Matera was amazing and felt completely different to anywhere else we have been in Italy. We loved Pisciotta and the hotel was wonderful with lovely owners who were great at suggesting things to do. We visited a buffalo farm, a vinyard and tooks boats to isolated coves with lovely clear water. All arrangements were absolutely faultless. We would never have found such lovely places without Antonio! 2016 _________________________________ We have just returned from a fantastic holiday suggested no arranged by ExpertTo Italy. Once again the organisation by Antonio was flawless and everything worked perfectly. We spent 5 nights by lake Maggiore and 3 in Cogne in the Italian Alps. Both hotels and locations were fantastic - particularly the Bellvue in Cogne. Please see trip advisor if interested in the hotels as I will give a more specific review there - I'm not a fanatic reviewer but both really deserve it. We have used this company for the past 5 years and Antonio seems to have a real gift for finding fantastic hotels and matching locations to his clients. I would not usually put the level of trust in anyone to arrange holidays for me that I have with Antonio but he has delivered every time and I can unreservedly recommend his services. Italy is a beautiful country with huge variety - if you describe what you like to Antonio and let him make suggestions then you will not be disappointed. Very definitely 5 stars from me. So - Antonio and team, please keep it up! Jonread more

Antonio delivered more than expected! Our family of four stayed at two beautiful villa's on the Amalfi Coast. Both of the locations were top class. Antonio provided excellent service and was always available if we had questions about the details of our trip. He was easy to work with and we would recommend his services to others traveling to Italy.read more
