Art Hotel Gran Paradiso, Sorrento Italy
★ ★ ★ ★
An appealing, modern hotel, full of contemporary art. Interiors are bright and airy with open-plan facilities and a pool terrace with possibly the best views in the whole area. It is a very long steep climb up hill but a shuttle bus runs to Sorrento railway station. The nearest beach is far away in Sant Agnello, so the best option is the free shuttle into Sorrento. Own car would be a real advantage.
A mix of international guests, mostly fashionable couples and individuals.
Way up high above Sorrento and Sant ‘Agnello with stunning views down over the town below to the coast and Mount Vesuvius. Little else in the vicinity apart from a few residences and another hotel. 750 metres down a steep winding road to the main road below and some spread out amenities. A courtesy bus is provided to the train station in Sorrento, where it is a 5-minute walk to the main square.
The seafront of Sant’ Agnello(also known as Marinella) is a small stretch of dark sand and shingle beach and wood-decked jetties-both with chargeable sunbeds and parasols. A small section of public beach does not charge and entry fee. Access is via a public chargeable elevator at the top of the cliff above.This beach is 2.5 kms away , so the best option may be the free shuttle bus to Sorrento.
Wide tiled terrace looking right out to sea, the coast and Mount Vesuvius with a glass windgreak frontage. Sunbeds with built-in facial shades surround the 15 metre rectangular pool which has sloping entry in one corner.
