Villa Manning Relais is a love story. Love for their family, for their land, for beauty. Historic home of the 19th century, for the first time in 2018, opens its doors to accommodate travelers who choose Sorrento as a base for exploring the Mermeids’ land. The Villa has a strategic position close to everything that must be visited and it's just 5 minutes away from the main square in Sorrento. There are only 5 rooms and suites and it is a magical gem, we are so happy to have discovered it!
A gift from a mother to her children to whom it seemed natural to convert this mansion into a relais to ensure that all those who chose to stay there could stay in a historic home full of timeless beauty and above all, full of love; a villa where you can still breathe the atmosphere of Sorrento celebrated by poetry, music, cinema and with a sincere hospitality that will make you feel at home.
The original construction remains - as a evidence to the fascinating history that pervades this hotel - however the rooms have been transformed into modern corners of serenity. The light floods the rooms with white walls and large windows, while touches of color, like those of sofas or traditional ceramics, add a lively and authentic flavor.
A rich breakfast at km0 awaits guests: from freshly baked pastries to croissants and bundles filled with creams and jams, from assorted sandwiches to cured meats and cheeses and vegetables grown in the garden of the Villa; fruit and coffee for you to enjoy.
In the large garden the orange and lemon trees and the ancient trees are sentinels to silence. A pleasant and unexpected surprise is hidden in a historic building: a beautiful plunge pool surrounded by greenery and flooded with the scent of citrus. During the day it offers a private space for relaxation and an escape from the confusion. The evening is a magnificent liquid scenography that frames the aperitif.
Everything at Villa Manning Relais shows how this structure was created to create something beautiful and that could differentiate itself between the already well-supplied offer of accommodation facilities in the Sorrento Peninsula.
