Stay: Villa Serena. One of the many exceptional properties in the Inspirato collection: a travel club offering its members the best in private villas/estates and service to make any destination feel like a (luxury) home away from home. In our case, this particular abode was high atop a precarious hill outside Sorrento, with views of the Mediterranean from every room. The surprisingly sprawling grounds (given the steep lots) were as lovely as can be with an inviting swimming pool one tier down, surrounded by jasmine, crawling ivy and olive trees. It was hard to find an excuse not to relax given that our every whim had been looked after (a stocked fridge on arrival, local wine and ripe fruit for the taking, travel arrangements and day trips looked after by the villa concierge, beds made daily by the lovely Theresa)…..now what? Oh right, time to enjoy this holiday.
Treat: obviously gelato becomes a daily staple when in Italy, but Primavera doesn’t make just ANY gelato. Warning, there will be a line-up, and you will wait in it (without complaining) because the minute you taste one of their 30 plus flavors there will be no looking back.
