Red, indigo, blue, green: La Minervetta is a lighthearted mix of bright tones, making this boutique hotel just minutes from the center of Sorrento an unmistakable splash of color right above the sea near Marina Grande and its fishing village. Echoed by the shades of the sea and sky, La Minervetta's colors change according to the quality of light during the day, ranging from the deep blue of the Mediterranean to the fiery reds of the sunset. Together with the unique color scheme, the hotel also holds a collection of memorabilia from over 50 years of hosting travellers to Sorrento, making it one of the most characteristic accommodations along the coast.
The resort atmosphere and sea air permeates all of La Minervetta. The rooms all have a view over the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius through the breathtaking picture windows, which are flooded with light and crisp sea breezes from the first light of day. The warm color scheme of blues and reds make the guest rooms particularly warm and friendly, and the quirky furnishings and decorative touches reflect the offbeat tastes of your hosts.
Each morning, you'll be awakened by the smell of coffee and fresh baked goods which wafts through the entire hotel from the kitchen, which is the heart of La Minervetta. Savor your breakfast while drinking in the stunning views for the perfect start to every day.
Settle in and relax on the large terrace of La Minerva, with its VIP view of the Bay of Naples stretched out before you, including Mount Vesuvius on the horizon. From just below, you'll hear the bustle of the fishing village of Marina Grande, which you can reach by climbing down the staircase to the water's edge, passing the lush garden and pool carved directly into the cliff face.
