Neapolitan Riviera, Sorrento
Set among 10 acres of gardens and orchards just outside Sorrento, Villa Don Camillo is an ideal boutique hotel retreat.
The villa is family run and features just seven bedrooms, so it’s got the feel of staying with friends or family. Housed inside a 17th-century aristocratic villa, each room at the Villa Don Camillo is individually styled, with boutique-style furnishings.
Outside, the orchards wrap around a decked swimming pool, while shaded sofas are the perfect places to curl up with book and a glass of local wine. There’s also an al fresco dining area for supper, which can be decorated for birthdays, special occasions or wedding receptions.
In terms of the location, you’re in Sant’Agnello, a residential area of Sorrento that offers a more authentic Italian experience – neighbourhood trattorias are filled with Sorrentine families and food markets bustle with locals picking up fresh ingredients for dinner.
A stroll into the centre of Sorrento takes around 45 minutes or you can catch a local train, which will take you five minutes.
“As soon as I walked in, the smell of the lemon trees that grow in the garden hit me, and I knew I was entering a totally different property from all the ones I’ve seen before. The owners were so warm and welcoming – it felt just like being at home with family.” Lisian Gianni, Italy Expert
The hotel has 7 rooms (official rating 4 star).
The Villa Don Camillo offers an extensive buffet breakfast which includes fresh pastries, granola, yogurt, homemade cakes, eggs, cold meats and cheeses between 7.30am and 11am (it can also be served in your room on request).
The hotel has a salt water swimming pool which is set in amongst the orchard and during the summer months it can be used late into the evening.
The large gardens surrounding the property are lined with original stone arches and embellished with old fruit groves including that of orange, lime and lemons. If you feel like having a fresh lemonade or orange juice to quench your thirst, then the staff will simply pick the fruit from the garden; nothing is too much trouble in this stunning property.
Free on-site parking is available for guests.
Free wifi is available throughout the hotel including all the rooms.
