Fascinating myths and ancient history run deep throughout this captivating region and it’s easy to take a step back in time from our villas on the Sorrentine peninsular along dramatic Amalfi coastline, where sirens are said to have lured fisherman to their deaths on the rocks of Li Galli. Wander the famed archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum, devastated by the eruptions of Mount Vesuvius and frozen in time under a blanket of volcanic ash and pumice. This poignant reminder of destruction is a stark contrast to the Duomo - or cathedral - of Sorrento, the impressive façade and magnificent, ornate interior of which is a celebration of creation.
For food lovers a holiday to our Amalfi Coast villas provides many opportunities for indulgence. The rich waters serve up seafood fresh from the port to your plate - try the Marina Grande at Positano and the Marina Piccola at Sorrento for a beautiful backdrop to a delicious meal. The local speciality - Gnocchi alla Sorrentina - is a simple yet delicious dish of potato dumplings in tomato and mozzarella sauce. Menus brim with other Italian favourites, including numerous varieties of pasta and gelati in every flavour imaginable, while nearby Naples is renowned as the home of pizza. If you fancy a tipple, Limoncello is produced on the Amalfi Coast, from enormous Amalfi lemons.
