The Sorrento Peninsula is located in Southern Italy and forms the Southern side of the Gulf of Naples. The peninsula is named after its main town, Sorrento, which is located on the North coast. On the South is the Amalfi Coast. The island of Capri lies close to the tip of the peninsula in the West. The whole area is an important tourist destination and offers many sights and activities to visitors.

Cascading down the hillside to the Mediterranean in a vertical tumble of white-washed stone, fashionable Positano is a wonder to behold.

Visitors, take note: Good walking shoes and stamina are a requirement!

Known as a foodie haven, Sant’Agata is home to an impressive selection of restaurants, from humble to Michelin-starred.

Don’t Miss:

  • A walk up to Monastero di San Paolo (10 minutes above town), which offers some of the best views of Sorrento and Vesuvius.
  • Dinner at Don Alfonso 1890 (located on the main square), one of Italy’s most famous restaurants. Note: Lo Stuzzichino, located next door, is more budget-friendly and equally good!
  • Edible souvenirs, such as the areas “Sant’Anna” tomatos, “femminiello ovale” lemons, or Monte Lattari cheese. You won’t find these anywhere else!
  • A hike to Torca, and from there on to the Crappolla Fjord, a beautiful beach. Don’t miss the Chapel of San Pietro, which according to legend was built on the remains of a pagan temple dedicated to Apollo.

Massa Lubrense  -  [ Matches:  15 Villas and Houses For Rent]

Known as the legendary Land of Sirens, Massa Lubrense has been bewitching visitors since ancient times. Situated at the very tip of the Sorrento Peninsula, the town overlooks beautiful Ieranto Bay. There is a small historic center and a vast network of paths and mule tracks that connect the town’s 17 frazioni, or hamlets. This is a hiker’s paradise with over 100 km of signed trails, so bring your walking shoes! Sorrento is just 3 miles away.

Just east of Positano lies its laid-back neighbor Praiano. The hub of this small, authentic fishing village is bustling Bar del Sole. The main beach is La Gavitella and there’s also smaller, more picturesque Marina di Praia (known as La Praia to locals) wedged into the cliffs. Visitors to Praiano should be ready for a relaxed vibe and LOTS of steps! Walking shoes and beach shoes (for the pebbly beaches) are highly recommended.

  • A walk to Torre di Grado, an ancient Saracen watchtower. It’s 500 steps down from the main road… but the views are well-worth the effort on the return trip.  

Sorrento  -  [ Matches:  9 Villas and Houses For Rent]

Resting on a terrace of land, Sorrento rises steeply above the sea on one of the most spectacular points of the Campanian coast. Due to its enchanting position and mild climate, Sorrento has been a favorite resort since Romans times, drawing heavyweights the likes of Agrippa, Augustus, and Antonius. It became an elite tourist resort in the eighteenth century. Most likely founded by the Greeks, Sorrento was already inhabited in prehistoric times.

Amalfi  -  [ Matches:  7 Villas and Houses For Rent]

Part of the Campania region, the Amalfi Coast stretches from Salerno to Sorrento. The seaside towns of Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello lie nestled in its craggy coastal landscape. Capri and Ischia, legendary island playgrounds of the rich and famous, offer no end of glittering bays and white sand beaches. While the sun and sea of places like the Villa Capri are sure to captivate, the Amalfi Coast also offers interesting antiquity to those who wish to venture inland, such as the Roman ruins of Herculaneum and Pompeii at the base of Vesuvius, and further south, the Greek temples of Paestum. During your stay in one of our luxury Italian villa rentals you'll discover the cuisine of the Amalfi Coast which highlights all types of seafood and locally grown produce such as lemons, tomatoes, and peppers. While enjoying our private villas in the coastal towns of Positano and Amalfi you'll always find insalata caprese, a delicious salad of sliced tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil, and olive oil. Campania's other specialty is limoncello, a delicate, lemon-infused digestivo that is served ice cold. Throughout the region you'll find an impressive number of excellent eateries, from casual, down-home trattorie to upscale restaurants.

Capri  -  [ Matches:  4 Villas and Houses For Rent]

The “Blue Island”, Capri is known for its craggy limestone cliffs, dramatic caves, and surrounding reefs. It is particularly famous for the Blue Grotto, a cave in which the water glows a luminescent blue. The island's main towns are Capri and Anacapri. Inhabited since the Paleolithic age when it was still connected to the mainland, Capri was later inhabited by Greeks, and then Romans. A cosmopolitan colony, writers, painters, expatriates, and movie stars have flocked to Capri for the last 200 years. With its magnificent scenery, mild climate, and rich vegetation, Capri is truly a paradise. It is also rich in antiquity, such as the Roman Villa Jovis---pleasure palace of Tiberius---which was excavated in 1827. Capri's mozzarella, showcased in the island's signature insalata caprese, is not to be missed.

Ravello  -  [ Matches:  4 Villas and Houses For Rent]

Located three miles above Amalfi up a winding mountain road, Ravello has long been a magnet. Richard Wagner, Greta Garbo, Gore Vidal, D.H. Lawrence and Virginia Woolf all were drawn to this mountaintop perch to relax, escape and create. Ravello is known for its magnificent sea views, beautiful villas (Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo) and annual summer music and arts festival. There is a pretty main piazza surrounded by outdoor cafés—a perfect spot to wile away your vacation hours.

The views are spectacular and an ice cold Peroni on the piazza in Atrani never tasted so good. Physical fitness and healthy knees required!
  • A visit to Villa Cimbrone and its gardens. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better view of the coast.
  • An early morning stroll (and coffee) in the historic center of Ravello. Experience the quiet town and its charming cobblestone alleys before the day trippers arrive.
  • Gelato at Baffone Gelateria Artiginale… simply the best on the Amalfi Coast!

Sant'Agnello  -  [ Matches:  4 Villas and Houses For Rent]

At 4 kilometers from Sorrento, quiet Sant’Agnello offers a taste of slow-paced life on the peninsula. There is regular train service (5 minutes) into Sorrento when you’re craving some hustle and bustle and even Napoli (one hour by train) is a manageable day’s trip. Ancient ruins are literally at your fingertips, with Pompeii (30 minutes) and Herculaneum (40 minutes) just short trips away.

Don’t miss:

  • Dinner at Salumeria/Gastronomia Masaniello, a foodie haven. Call ahead to nab one of the few tables. The owner, Nello, and his wife do all the cooking.
  • Visit the ruins of Pompeii and then take a bus to the summit of Vesuvius. Thanks to the convenient Circumvesuviana rail line, it’s an easy day trip.
  • An Italian-style beach day: Rent chairs and an umbrella at La Marinella, the local stabilimento balneare. Snack bars and restaurants abound.
  • George Vallets Archaeological Museum in neighboring Piano di Sorrento. Housed in the beautiful Villa Fondi di Sangro, the museum features artifacts from prehistoric through Roman times.

Maiori  -  [ Matches:  3 Villas and Houses For Rent]

It’s here on the southern end of the costiera that you’ll find Spiaggia di Maiori, the largest beach on the Amalfi Coast. Nearby Erchie, a hamlet of Maiori, also has a lovely beach (a UNESCO World Heritage site) flanked by ancient towers. Above Maiori lies the Castello di San Nicola de Thoro-Plano, a Norman fortification. It’s accessible on foot and offers beautiful views; steps wind up through neighborhoods and lemon groves.

  • Tasting eggplant with chocolate, an unlikely pairing traditionally prepared on August 15th, to celebrate Ferragosto.
  • Walking to the Abbey of Santa Maria d’Olearia, an ancient monastery built into natural rock. The frescoes are still incredibly vivid!

The main beach and port just below the hamlet of Nerano, Marina del Cantone offers something for all types of travelers. Those up for adventure can rent kayaks, charter a private boat for the day, or hike to secluded Recommone Beach, with its white pebbles, sea caves, and secluded restaurant.

Ischia  -  [ Matches:  2 Villas and Houses For Rent]

The largest island in the Bay of Naples, Ischia was an active volcano until 1301. The so-called “Green Island” is renowned for its thermal springs. It boasts an array of hotels and spas where you can take the waters, which attract an international crowd from March through November. The island is divided into six communes: Ischia, Casamicciola Terme, Laco Ameno, Forio, Serrara Fontana, and Barano. Ischia is the most important of the six, as it's home to a bustling harbor and ancient fishing village called Ischia Ponte.
