Grand Hotel Cocumella (Sorrento)
Amalfi Coast - Sorrento - Positano, Italy
Close to Sorrento, Grand Hotel Cocumella is a luxury hotel in a spectacular Italian setting. Sorrento is a town of legends and gardens. Away from the bustling town centre, lies a park above a dramatic 100-meter cliff enjoying views of the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius beyond. This is the site of the Grand Hotel Cocumella, built in the 16th century as a Jesuit monastery and converted to a hotel in 1822. Grand Hotel Cocumella is one of the oldest and most beautiful hotels on the Sorrento Peninsular, Italy overlooking both Mount Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples. Nearby Sorrento is a large, picturesque traditional Italian town, the centre of which is only a 15-minute walk from the hotel. Sorrento is on Italy's Amalfi coast and Grand Hotel Cocumella is ideally placed for exploring this unique stretch of the Mediterranean. The hotel arranges day cruises to nearby Capri and the cliff side village of Positano. Grand Hotel Cocumella is 75 minutes from Naples Airport by car.
Grand Hotel Cocumella has 44 elegant air-conditioned bedrooms and six suites charmingly furnished in the local tradition with antiques. Special features range from a seaside solarium and a private chapel for concerts, to Cocumella's own tall ship 'Vera', built in 1880 and used for day cruises along the Amalfi Coast and to Capri. The Scintilla Restaurant, romantically overlooking the park, serves Mediterranean cuisine, accompanied by fine Italian wines. In summer, the Agrumeto presents a relaxed barbecue lunch under the shade of orange trees by the pool. As Goethe discovered in his time, this peaceful spot is the perfect seaside escape. During July and August there is an open-air piano bar.
