Set high on the cliffs of Sorrento with breathtaking views that stretch over Sorrento, Marina Grande, the mountains, Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius, Maison La Minervetta leaves you lost for words. With it’s picture perfect views, unique, stunning decor and understated luxury, Maison La Minervetta is an absolute must when visiting Sorrento and Italy.
Maison La Minervetta is located only a short 15 minute walk to the heart of Sorrento. Its cliff-side location overlooking Sorrento is ideal with the convenience of the town close by, yet far enough away that you feel relaxed in the beautiful, tranquil surroundings. The hotel boasts the best location in town with their magical panoramic views of Sorrento, the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius from every angle. It has been designed perfectly, with every aspect of the hotel only further enhancing the view; I can guarantee you that everywhere you look you will only fall more in love with Sorrento and Maison La Minervetta.
The spacious, sweeping terrace offers you yet another opportunity to marvel at the priceless views whilst relaxing enjoying a drink or savouring your delicious breakfast.
The hotels pool is beautiful, private and has inbuilt spa jets. It is an architectural feat having been built into the cliff side. Towels and sunbeds are provided along with the most incredible viewing.
For those feeling active, you can take the 300-odd private steps from the hotel down to the picturesque, colourful Marina Grande fishing village. There are a number of incredible seafood restaurants in the Marina and Minervetta guests have access to sun-bed use at Delfino, one of the marina restaurants. The stairs down to the harbour/beach are beautiful, with a number of seats along the way along with typical beautiful Minervetta statues and artwork dotting the path.
Maison La Minervetta is extremely spacious despite having only 13 rooms, ensuring your privacy and relaxation during your stay. I fell in love with the hotel from the minute we stepped through into the lobby, but our true love-story with Maison La Minervetta began when we were shown to our room. Every room is spacious, sea facing and features floor to ceiling windows. Continuing with the clean, beautiful and maritime theme the rooms are beautifully decorated and each individually designed. Every possible amenity and toiletry we needed to ensure our comfort and enjoyment during our stay was provided in the room, along with complimentary Wi-Fi. After a perfect nights sleep in our dreamily comfortable bed, waking up to the sun rising over the Bay of Naples was like a dream. Sitting in our chairs looking out our picture frame window over Marina Grande, Sorrento and the Bay of Naples was an experience we will never forget and was truly one of the highlights of our Italian holiday.
Maison La Minervetta oozes understated luxury. It is one of the most unique hotels I have ever stayed in and by far one of my favourites. The decor of the hotel is expressive, stylish, unique and beautiful. From the moment you step inside the lobby and lounge you will feel at home, and certainly are made to feel at home by their friendly and helpful staff. The decor is creative, luxurious and arty throughout the hotel along with bright and beautiful colours, particularly reds, blues and whites, portraying a very stylish nautical theme. The lobby and rooms are filled with beautiful, interesting books provided both for decoration and enjoyment! Sculptures are dotted throughout the hotel, the walls are filled with beautiful artworks and photos and there are countless areas for you to sit, relax and take in the magical views. Every aspect of the hotel has had the highest attention to detail paid to it, from the rooms to the public areas to the outdoors, it really is picture perfect.
Breakfast at Maison La Minervetta is cooked in the hotel’s beautiful bright and colourful kitchen by two wonderful ladies and served on the terrace, allowing you the opportunity to enjoy your breakfast whilst soaking in the view and sunshine. The breakfast was absolutely delicious with countless options ranging from fresh fruit, cakes, crossoints, pastries, breads, jams, cheeses and meats, cereal, yoghurt, juice, tea, coffee and eggs and pancakes cooked however you like! Breakfast on the terrace is a wonderful experience in itself and is the perfect start to your day in picturesque Sorrento.
Our stay at Maison La Minervetta was incredible, it is a truly remarkable, unique hotel. The staff are welcoming, friendly, helpful and look after your every need. From the stylish decor to beautiful, comfortable rooms and countless spaces to relax and appreciate the spectacular views, Maison La Minervetta is the perfect choice for your stay in Sorrento.
