Sant'Agata & Sorrento, Italy

Sant'Agata,  a small village a little south of Sorrento.

And also our humble abode for the week. H found a villa on Airbnb that was big enough to fit 9 of us, which wasn't an easy job!

During our relaxed days, we wandered through the village, exploring the streets and just soaking in the italian sun. (Seriously, so lucky with the weather!)

It was also a great opportunity to try out the Olympus and take a few shots here and there.

Our village had everything we needed, a cute tiny shop with local wine (fizzy red wine however, I think I still need to get used to!), snacks, a supermarket with an amazing selection of cheese (the mozarella from here was out of this world) and even a gelateria.

Here was the star of the show: Da Mimi.

Our Airbnb host Laura was hospitable, welcoming and everything you could ask for in a host. She gave us a heads up about this place, which was wallet friendly and served the most effortless Italian food.

Check them out here.
I think we managed to eat here 3 times during our stay!

We did venture out of Sant'Agata, as Sorrento was on our doorstep.

With lots of little shops and LOTS of chilli...


We hunted for souvenirs...

Before settling at The Foreigner's Club for a few drinks (it's on a hill so you try to get a table near the edge so you can enjoy the view of the Bay of Naples).

H had mentioned to us before that the place to eat cannelloni was La Favorita – 'o Parrucchiano,
where cannelloni was invented, over a century ago.

We went here to try the canneloni (of course) one evening and we weren't disappointed. The restaurant had large windows, sort of like a greenhouse, and housed lemons, flowers as far as the eye could see.

This holiday was one I'll never forget... a trip full of memories and happy times (and laughs!) 
In fact, check in the next post where I'll share with you some of my favourite moments of the trip!
