This small, friendly family hotel lies just a few minutes drive from Sorrento. Its easy access to the Gulf of Naples, Capri, Ischia and the Amalfi coast makes this a perfect spot for nature lovers and sun-seekers alike.
The Hotel Angelina lies in the historic centre of Sant’Agnello, among citrus groves on Italy’s Sorrento Peninsula. It has a marvellous position, being located just a few minutes from the main bus stop and the centre of town.
Tthe hotel combines old-fashioned hospitality, warmth and every modern comfort. There are 21 rooms on three floors, all with bathrooms and telephones, air conditioning, and with their balconies or windows opening onto the orange groves below. There is a dining room with air conditioning, TV lounge, lovely gardens, solarium and private garage.
The hotel lies 400 metres from the Circumvensuviana of Sant’Agnello Station, and its railway line which links Naples, Pompeii and Sorrento. The main bus station is 200 metres away; 1.5km away is the harbour at Sorrento, from which you can reach the main destinations on the Gulf. 30 minutes by car or bus takes you to the lovely town of Positano, and 45 minutes to the Amalfi Coast. And you are just minutes from fine seaviews and beautiful beaches.
There is an enormous amount to see and enjoy around Sorrento. The Peninsula separates two of Italy's most beautiful stretches of water, the Bay of Naples and the Bay of Salerno, and Positano is stunning - houses climbing in a pyramid above crystal blue waters. Positano's smaller neighbour, the ancient fishing village of Praiano, is a delightful seaside resort, with a cascade of white houses on a green flowered slope surrounded by sandy coves. You’ll have to leave the car to descend by foot into the village, with bougainvillea and jasmine providing a riot of perfume and colour.
Eastwards you come across the precipitous town of Amalfi. Facing inwards, lining both sides of the steep Valle dei Mulini, the town oozes history. The centre of a maritime republic which flourished between 800 and 1100, Amalfi had 70,000 inhabitants in its prime, with more abroad in merchant colonies from Tunis to Constantinople. The locals were skilled navigators as well as shrewd merchants: it was Amalfian sailors who introduced the compass to the Christian West from Muslim Africa. Like in Venice, souvenirs of Byzantium were brought back to garnish private houses and municipal buildings – check out the bronze doors of the cathedral, cast in Constantinople in 1066.
Or head north to Naples, a dazzling, chaotic and lively city, where life is lived on the street. You’ll eat on the streets too, with vendors selling an enormous array of pizzas (which originated here), Calzone (stuffed pizza), potato croquettes and courgette flowers in batter. Neopolitans are very good at pastries too, and there are good white wines such as Biancolella and Greco di Tufo, or Taurasi red.
Then back to your hotel in Naples, lying in one of the most beautiful and relaxing spots you could dream of. Click below to find out more.
