Amalfi, Sorrento and Islands - Marina del Cantone
Villa Nereide – Marina del Cantone – Amalfi Coast
6 Bedrooms – Pool – Direct Access to the Sea
Location and Surrounding Area. Villa Nereide is situated in arguably one of the most beautiful locations along the Sorrento peninsula. Ieranto is a fabled beauty spot nestled at the far end of the Sorrento peninsular, a hidden gem of a location only frequented by locals and the occasional savvy traveller.
The fishing hamlet of Marina del Cantone has a pebble beach and is like the village that time forgot; still steeped in tradition and old-fashioned techniques yet only a ten minute drive from Nerano and Sant'Agata sui Due Golfi and less than half an hour from the hustle and bustle of Sorrento and Positano. You can almost reach out and touch the islands of Capri and Ischia as you take in the magnificent views from the terraces. The peace and quiet of the stunning scenery, dotted with citrus and olive groves, is guaranteed to recharge your batteries with a long-lasting sense of well-being.
Among the countless enchanting places to visit in the area, perhaps Ravello, Positano and Amalfi stand out for the first time visitor. Ravello, at 350 metres above sea level, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offers both unforgettable architecture and scenic beauty. The 11th century Cathedral and Villa Cimbrone are magnificent and a summer music festival is held each in the year in the gardens of the 13th century Villa Rufolo. D.H. Lawrence wrote Lady Chatterley's Lover here and the town has been frequented over the years by the likes of Greta Garbo and Winston Churchill.
The delights of Positano, Sorrento and Amalfi have inspired artists, writers and lovers for centuries. The higgledy-piggledy, white-washed houses clustered up and down the winding steps and sophisticated shops and restaurants all combine to create an exceptionally chic atmosphere.
Naples international airport is only 65 km away, the island of Capri is half an hour by boat from Sorrento and the world famous archaeological site of Pompeii is 40 km away. Sorrento is 20 km from the villa and Positano less than 30 km away along the breathtaking drive of the celebrated Amalfi Coast road. Amalfi is situated a little further on at 40 km and Ravello is 10 km up the hill from Amalfi. The nearest railway station is in Sorrento.
