|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
On arrival, you will find your parking area, reserved exclusively for guests and protected by an electric gate. Before you, the green slopes of the Mediterranean maquis stretch in all directions, alongside the organic lemon and olive groves tended to by the owners. Le Capannelle sits high on one of the natural terraces typical of the Amalfi Coast, guaranteeing wonderful views.
The well-kept shared gardens boast a wonderful 10m x 5m swimming pool (open from 15th May to 15th October), surrounded by a solarium terrace. Beautiful potted plants rest alongside ample sun loungers and parasols, giving the ideal place to soak up the sunshine, whilst enjoying the panoramic views from the Amalfi Coast to the Gulf of Salerno. On an adjacent raised terrace, you can relax on the comfortable wicker sofas beneath the shade of a pergola, whilst savouring the unforgettable sunsets over the blue seas of the Bay of Nerano. On hot summer days, the small wood and olive grove offer an ideal retreat when you wish to cool down.
Le Capannelle is within easy walking distance of good restaurants and grocery stores in the charming town of Sant'Agata sui Due Golfi. From there it is a short drive, or bus ride, to the many attractions of Sorrento, and beyond on the Amalfi Coast.
All guests are welcome to use the communal laundry room on the first floor, where you will find two washing machines, iron and ironing board.
We had a fantastic stay at Le Capannelle in early October 2012. We had booked a smaller apartment but were upgraded on arrival, which was a lovely surprise. The apartment was clean, bright and modern, will great facilities for a self-catering holiday. The two balconies were the perfect place to relax and have meals with amazing views. The only complaint would be the hairdryer, which seemed to be faulty and didn't have much power - if you rely on a hairdryer take your own! The apartments were very quiet when we were there and we had the lovely, private pool area to ourselves for most of the week - bliss.
The village location is great for those wanting to get away from the busy, tourist areas but to still have access to all that the area has to offer. It is well placed for discovering the Sorrento/Amalfi coast. The village itself has great restaurants (Da Mimi was a favourite of ours) and a brilliant bakery as well, just down the road from the apartment. We hired a car for our week in Italy so cannot comment on the public transport, but we found parking in the area to be fine.
Overall, a great stay and we would definitely recommend Le Capannelle to anyone visiting this beautiful part of the world.
IMPORTANT! This location is a bit tricky to get to, and unfortunately, minimal directions were provided. Here is how to get to the Feeling Italy offices by bus. Leaving the Circumvesuviana train station, cross the street, go down the steps and cross the street again. Look for an Amalfi bus and ask the driver to get off at Hotel Due Golfi. This will put you at the top of Via Nastro Azzurro. Head down the road and #25 will be on your right...unmarked by number, so you have to hunt a bit. Now, when you are at the apartment, it is easier to take the bus to and from Sorrento that stops just a bit down from the pharmacy. It will be marked Sorrento or St.Agata via Massa Lubrense. Either way, you will be the final stop. The village of St. Agata is lovely with lots of gardens and lemon groves. There are plenty of great restaurants as well. The apartment was well-appointed and the pool and grounds were beautiful. Once you manage to find it, this is a great place to stay.
Le Campanelle was a really nice place to stay for excursions arround the Sorrento/Amalfi-Coast, as well as a really quit place to relax by the pool overlooking the nice sea underneath.
Sant�������Agata sui Due Golfi is located, as the name itself suggests, between Naples and Salernos gulf on the top of Sorrento hills and offers a beautiful view as well as nice excursions for trekking and riding lovers such as: Baia di Ieranto, Punta della Campanella with the ruins of Atena's temple, San Costanzo mountain and Crapollas fiord. SantAgata is the ideal place also for who loves the sea: by bus in 10 minutes you can reach Marina del Cantone, crowded by a lot of VIPs in summertime thanks its good restaurants, too. By the way, although a small town, in Sant'Agata there are three very important restaurants even mentioned on the celebrated Michelin guide book. La Taverna del Capitano, I Quattro Passi and Don Alfonso 1870 are famous all over the world and there, it is possible to eat typical sea food dishes, local cheese and good wine.
