Pretty villages and beautiful views along Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula

The Amalfi Coast in Southern Italy is breathtakingly beautiful.  There are 13 fascinating villages along this part of the Sorrentine coast and each one has its own unique character and charm.  We loved Positano, Praiano, Ravello, Amalfi and the spectacular Walk of the Gods that passes across the mountains high above them.

One of our favourite places to stay is Casa Privata.  It is secluded, beautifully decorated and, as well as having a fantastic pool, it has a gorgeous garden that runs directly down to the sea.  And here, hidden away on rocky outcrops beside the sea, is the perfect place to enjoy the sun, for the thoughtful folk that run Casa Privata have set out comfortable sun-loungers and parasols for their guests. Bliss!
