Grand Europa Palace - Sorrento

The centrally located four-star superior Grand Europa Palace Hotel enjoys one of Sorrento’s most breathtaking vantage points, directly on the cliff-top with uninterrupted sea views across the Bay of Naples to Vesuvius. Once private villas, some of Sorrento’s oldest and most classic buildings were wonderfully converted to a hotel during the 19th century, set in lush landscaped gardens whilst in the spacious public areas, design has opted to retain the elegance and charm associated with the splendour of the Grand Tour. Lavish Venetian glass chandeliers grace the ‘coved’ ceilings, fine art adorns the walls, seating is on tasteful high backed chairs and sofas, high windows are elegantly dressed with flowing pastel-coloured curtains whilst wide corridors are lined with bronze and marble sculptures.

The hotel consists of two restored 19th Century former villa’s, one of which hosts the exceptionally opulent reception area and restaurant. The bedrooms are located in both buildings, Standard rooms and Sea View rooms are in the main building and Standard rooms are also located in the Villino Maria across a pathway opposite, room types are all of an equivalent standard. Bedrooms at the Europa Palace are spacious, finished in rich deep colours with an overall design reflecting the hotel’s epic past. All rooms are air conditioned with mini bar, safe and satellite tv.

Take a lift down to the hotel’s private pool, surrounded by Roman columns and enjoy a well deserved relaxing moment on the private lido just steps from the sea and the poolside bar is at hand to serve you a chilled cocktail after sightseeing.

Sea facing room with balcony £169 per person; Standard Room (main building) £30.

Please note: Where hotels feature a swimming pool, pools are open in the summer months weather permitting.
