Captains Quarters: Maison La Minervetta
While traveling through Italy last month, our finish line was Sorrento and its safe to say we saved the best for last. We checked into Maison La Minervetta which sits just across the harbor from Naples and was the perfect place to digress after almost a month on the road. Perched on the cliffs that surround Sorrento and the Amalfi coast, La Minervetta encompasses everything that you’d expect from Southern Italy. Directly across from Mt. Vesuvius, the entire hotel is flooded with light, perfect views, fresh air, fresh food, and some of the nicest and most welcoming people. The owners of the hotel live on the first floor and make a point to see that every guest enjoys their room as well as their experience. With only 12 (unique) rooms it’s easy to feel at home, and I’m not just saying this because the place happens to be fitted out with boats and maritime paraphernalia. Even with Naples only a 45 minute boat ride away, it was hard to leave.
Everything about this hotel was on point, and if you’re headed to Sorrento, I’d definitely say Maison La Minervetta should be your spot. Stop by Mr. & Mrs. Smith for the full scoop and booking details.
