From Pamela and Lynne James
We are very deeply disappointed that we cannot have a holiday this time, we will miss Sorrento, Amalfi and especially Hotel Girasole and its wonderful warmly welcoming staff very much. Hopefully we will be able to come in the autumn or early next year. Girasole is a family-run hotel which offers a comfortable and restful atmosphere with truly excellent staff and affords superb views from its balconies. It has a breakfast bar / restaurant, pool and poolside snacks facilities. It is ideally set halfway between Sorrento and Sant Agnello where there are many restaurants, walks and views of the Bay of Naples. Excellent pack lunches are available on request. There are frequent train services toward Naples, including Pompei and Herculaneum, also good bus services – both local (the orange or red/white EAV, formerly Circumvesuviana) and further afield (the blue SITA coaches) to places like Sant Agata, Massa, Positano, Grotta Smeralda (Emerald Grotto), Amalfi and onward from there to Ravello, Minori, Maiori and Salerno. The Monti Lattari offer stunning views and of course theres the famous Amalfi Drive. Back in Girasole, Rita offers a certain number of evening meals which are of a very high standard and you can sample local cuisine at its best. The hotel is ideal for a magnificent holiday, one which you will want to repeat again and again.
