The property is located in an ancient fishing village in the Monti Lattari Natural Reserve. Walking on ancient paths you can reach Sorrento, Massa Lubrense and some of its hamlets. You can even reach some areas that cannot be visited from the sea as they are part of the marine reserve: the Ieranto bay, a FAI reserve, and the Punta Campanella, dominated by the view on Capri. From Punta Campanella, Capri seems so close that it looks like you could touch it.
Sorrento is 4 kilometers away and you can easily reach it by car or by bus (the Sita bus stop is close to the property).
The strategic location of the San Francesco Relais allows you to reach also the furthest islands like Ischia and Procida, besides the famous tourist destinations: Positano, Amalfi, Ravello, Pompeii and Herculaneum.
Local guides can help you notice the local flora: myrtle, wild rosemary and carob.
A few steps from the sea...
The sea is the protagonist, being a 5 minute walk along an internal street that runs through the fishing village. The relation with the sea is very intimate as there are not the crowded and noisy summer resorts nearby. There are specific paths from which you can go swimming. For those who prefer the beach, they can be found about two or three kilometers going towards Sorrento or going towards Capri. The difference in size and facilities of the beaches will surely meet everybody’s needs.
From the small harbour nearby, there are frequent ferries and boats departing for Capri, Positano, Amalfi and the small spectacular bays of the marine reserve
