... parents to Da Franco’s- a favorite pizza place of the students in my program. It also happened to be Mardi Gras, so we watched from the town square as children dressed up like it was Halloween and had quite the celebration, throwing confetti and spraying silly string every which way. We finished this evening at Ristorante Tasso with Tsu as our guest of honor- it was of course delicious.

I believe there were 11 of uss from the school that met up at the trAin station, made the 1/2 hour journey and our guide Michael met us at the station at the other end. He was not informed that our tickets had Ben included so didn't have enough money for us to all ...
... the coast is just the most breath taking experience. Many houses built on the very edge of cliffs or even into the cliff face. You become trigger happy with the camera and although we took some great photos unfortunately, they will never capture the actual beauty. Our first stop was at the village of Amalfi where we wandered around, had another 'disgusting' coffee and bought a couple of nic nacs. This is a holiday town so everyone was relaxed but lots of tourists also. ...

Because it is "natural" some of it will last only one year, others two to three years. We sampled two white wines and two red wines, then selected the ones we would like to have with lunch.
Back up to the kitchen to make Fried Zucchini Flowers as they must be eaten hot! Then into the garden next to the pool for our ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Maison La Minervetta Sorrento
My husband and I absolutely loved this hotel! We stayed at Hotel Minervetta in early Septemer for our last night in Italy. (We had been staying in Positano at Albergo Miramare -- loved it as well -- but wanted an easier way to get to the Naples airport on our last day.) Hotel Minervetta was amazing! The room amenities and comfort reminded me of staying at the W Hotel -- so simple, yet plush. The owner of this hotel is an architect, and you can definitely tell -- down to every detail. The pool is small (mostly for a quick plung), but it is beautiful as well.
We just got back from our European honeymoon and Sorrento was one of our stops. We stayed at La Minervetta and were overwhelmed with how beautiful the hotel is. It looks exactly like it does on the website (you know how some hotels only take pix of their best rooms or a good corner?) This place is all about design. We loved our boldly colored room with a wall of windows overlooking the sea and the fishing village. The staff is small and friendly as you'd expect at a bed & breakfast.
For our honeymoon we stayed for a week at La Minervetta and as a result it is now our favourite hotel in the world. Upon viewing the official website our hopes were high but I don't think either of us were prepared for the magnificence of the actuality.
An exquisite ambience
What an amazing place: the design, the decoration, the colours, the objects, the breakfast, the view, the music... every detail is a must! What a pleasure for our 5 senses! The swimming pool is very small but so charming!!
4-Sterne Lage, 5-Sterne Aussicht, tolles Hotel
Dies ist ein großartiges kleine Boutique Hotel, es ist mehr wie eine private Villa, verfügt nur über 12 Zimmer, die Aussicht ist unglaublich, und der Eigentümer und die Angestellten sorgen dafür, dass man sich wie zu Hause fühlt. Wenn man nach Sorrento fährt und nach einer guten Erfahrung sucht, dann sollte man ins Maison La Minervetta fahren. Das Hotel ist einzigartig und eklektisch, es hat einen modernen Touch und eine Atmosphäre wie zu Hause. Wie ich schon sagte, die Aussicht vom Zimmer ist super, man überblickt Sorrento und das Meer und ist nur wenige Gehminuten von der Stadt entfernt. Die Gastfreundschaft ist erste Sahne, ist erst im Mai diesen Jahres eröffnet worden. Nach einem Besuch hier wird man sich nie wieder in einem Hotel einer Hotelkette aufhalten wollen.
Wir waren diesen Mai hier. Fantastisch. Die Aussicht ist sagenhaft. Das Hotel ist charmant und ruhig. Wir hatten ein Deluxe Zimmer, das Zimmer war sehr geräumig. Badezimmer war sauber und komplett ausgestattet. Zimmer hat Aussicht auf beiden Seiten. Frühstück war super, man konnte sich verschiedene Eivarianten bestellen, es gab frisches Obst, frisch gepressten Saft. Wundervolle Patio auf der man frühstückte. Bis zum Stadtzentrum sind es ca. 7-10 Gehminuten. Der Spaziergang lohnt isch der Aussicht und der Ruhe wegen. Es ist schön, dass das Hotel auf der rechten Straßenseite liet, passen Sie auf, wenn Sie hier Ihr Hotel buchen. Manche Hotels haben Meerblick, andere haben die Straße direkt vor der Nase. Man hat Meerblick und Lärm. Minervetta liegt auf der rechten Seite, man hat Meerblick, Berge vor dem Hotel, der Hafen liegt etwas unterhalb und man hört nie etwas von der Straße die sich auf der anderen Seite des Hotels befindet.
Wonderful perfect hotel and setting
We stayed this May. Fantastic. View is amazing. Hotel was charming and quiet. We stayed in deluxe room, room was very spacious. Bathroom clean and fully equipped.Room had a view from two sides of windows. Breakfast great, made to order eggs, fresh fruit, fresh squeezed juice. Beautiful patio to eat breakfast on. It is about a 7-10 minute walk from centre of town. The view and quiet is worth the walk. Nice thing the hotel is on the right side of the road, be careful booking your hotel. Some of the hotels that face the sea, have the road in front of them. You get the sea view and noise. Minervetta is on the right side you get a sea view, mountain in front and small harbor below and you will never hear the road which is on the other side of the hotel.
We stayed in La Minervetta for our 20th Wedding Anniversary earlier this month and cannot recommend it enough. A small, boutique hotel, it has been designed with loving care and minute attention to detail - look on their website to get a really good sense of the rooms and location. The rooms are decorated with colour and flair and even the corridors are propped with interesting objets d'art. Perched on the cliff, looking back over Sorrento, every room has a huge window looking over the bay and breakfast was taken sitting on the terrace with a panoramic view. Directly below the hotel is the old harbour, filled with brightly coloured, working fishing boats and there is a hairpin staircase currently being constructed from the hotel down to the bay. It's a family run concern and the staff are lovely with good English. They couldn't have been more helpful. The buffet breakfast was extensive with local cheeses, salami and fruit and piles of cakes and pastries and you can request cooked extras. The coffee was so delicious that, when my husband asked about it, he was given a big pack to bring home and a lesson in how to make it! I'm struggling to think of anything that they could have done better but it would have been nice to have a tea tray in the room to make a cup of tea or coffee after a day spent sightseeing and the bulbs in the bedside lamps were too dim to read by (although this is a European problem rather than one specific to this hotel!). You will have a fabulous time if you stay here.
Spent a week at the recently opened, (May 2005), Minnervetta and felt I had to write a recommendation for the hotel. Hotel is not the correct word as staying at the Minnervetta is more like being invited to stay as a guest in someones home. With only 12 rooms the hotel is tranquil and personal, a rare commodity these days. The rooms themselves were spacious and spotless, all with views of the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius. A lovely little aside is that the towels are changed twice a day. Breakfast is served on the terrace and once again the views are superb. The walk into Sorrento is approx 10 minutesat a gentle pace, and yet you are far enough away to miss the noise from the nightlife. Although dinner is not served at the hotel there are plenty of good restaurants, (prices to suit), in the town.
4 star location, 5 star veiws, Great Place
This is a great small Boutique hotel, more like a personal Villa, it only has 12 rooms, unbelievable views, and an owner and staff that make if feel like home. If your are going to Sorrento and would like a great experience go to Maison La Minervetta.
The hotel is unique and eclectic with a modern feel and home like atosmosphere. As I said the views from your room are stunning, over looking the Sorrento town and ocean, and a walk from all the town activities.
Hospitality top notch, it opened in May of this year. You'll never stay at a chain hotel again after this.
