My partner and I recently stayed at the phenomenal Maison La Minervetta for one glorious week from December 26th (2012) to January 1st. The hotel is situated on the cliffs overlooking the bay and town of Sorrento. Directly in front of you is the famous Mt. Vesuvius. Every view was truly astounding. The main rooms of this hotel are open and filled with natural light. Doors open on to large terraces, which are used in the high season for dining and lounging. There are books, books everywhere (!!), both fiction and non fiction, many of which focus on design and architecture. The main rooms are decorated with an eclectic and colourful mixture of paintings, sculptures and pottery. Our room was large, blue and white and spotless. The enormous windows once again provided an amazing view. There are only 12 rooms so it is quite quiet and private. A great shower and a large bathroom overall. We cannot say enough about the quality of each and every staff member (including the owner, Marco) of this property. Everyone was so very kind, knowledgeable and helpful. Breakfast was included each morning and one could feast and not have to eat for the remainder of the day! There was a wonderful display of various foods to suit every dietary desire or need.
This may have been the most special New Year's Eve celebration ever. Fireworks viewed from that terrace and then from our very own hotel room--magical and never to be forgotten. We would HIGHLY recommend this hotel to anyone looking for the most romantic and beautiful location. Also, there is an elevator for anyone who is physically challenged as there are some stairs to deal with, considering the location. Loved this place and loved Sorrento!
