Set on a fertile plain between Sorrento and the Lattari Mountains, Sant’Agnello is also just a few kilometres from one of the area’s longest sand beaches. The resort is a gateway to some of Italy’s prime holiday destinations, with neighbouring Sorrento considered the start of the mountainous Amalfi Coast and sunkissed southern Italy. Sant’Agnello holidays mean easy access to Sorrento’s bustling streets, while providing a quiet refuge away from the crowds.
Toast the sunset with a locally made limoncello or wander the shady streets that offer an unpretentious slice of Neapolitan life, taking in the houses bedecked with flower boxes and the ornate balconies overhead. Or explore the coastline with its rocky coves sheltering small harbours. Holidays to Sant’Agnello feature all the beaches and historic sights of the Sorrento region, while giving you a small-town base sure to feel like your own secret piece of Italy.
