Naples, Sorrento and Amalfi Coasts

Yacht and Hotel holidays

Charter Yacht available in the Naples, Sorrento Amalfi Coast area including, Sorrento, Capri, Ischia, Procida Islands as well a few delightful quality hotels

In this part of Italy with such lovely Islands close by, quality yachts and fine hotels are never far apart. The village of Sorrento, with it's strategic position on the southern coast of Italy (Sorrento Peninsula), offers the defining tour of the Bay of Naples and the Amalfi Coast. Sorrento, originally a Greek village, stands high on a dramatic line of 150 foot cliffs overlooking the Bay of Naples, and derived its’ name from the mythical song of the mermaids. It was at Sorrento that Ulysses heard the tempting song of the Sirens. With such a romantic background, it's no wonder that Sorrento has attracted visitors for hundreds of years. There are two marinas in town, the Marina Grande and the Marina Piccola, and both are a constant bustle of activity in addition some private quays. They lie at the base of cliffs that slope down from the East and West side of the old town center. The town square is encircled with shops selling the popular embroidered goods and wood inlay work popular from this region. Along the narrow Via San Cesareo are more shops selling fruits and vegetables and local Italian handicrafts. Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast are well known for their wonderful large lemons. Look for products made from these lemons such as lemon liqueur, lemon chocolate and lemon soap. Several very good restaurants can be found on the shore in Sorrento with fantastic views of the Bay as well as excellent hotels. With its breathtaking sunsets, gardens and fragrances of orange and lemons in the air, Sorrento makes a relaxing, picturesque yachting destination on its own, and the towns of Pompeii, Naples and Capri can easily be reached from the harbour for day trips on board the 'Vera'. She is perfect for a honeymoon or family charter.

Some of us prefer to charter a yacht for our private use. We can visit bays coves and the islands at our leisure, invite friends and relax in an old fashioned way. Cruise to bays and restaurants.. Here are a few well run Italian crewed charter vessels that could be used in a two center Yacht / Hotel holiday. What could be better? A few nights in a splendid hotel with fresh water pool and few days on a private yacht visiting the Amalfi Coast and arriving on the town quay of Capri, Ischia and Prochida.
