Hotel Belair details
A chic retreat that combines old and new, the Belair is every inch the good-looking Italian.
It’s the views that are the real talking point here. Perched on a rocky hillside, the Belair offers up widescreen vistas of Naples and Vesuvius. The location is spot on, too. It’s in a quiet residential area, just a ten-minute walk from the heart of Sorrento. When you want to hit the coast, simply follow the winding stone steps that lead down to the blue waters below.
The hotel itself is a traditional Mediterranean affair, featuring creamy yellow walls and exposed stone brickwork. Days here tend to be played out by the swimming pool. Framed by a lounger-dotted terrace, it’s the perfect place to soak up the views.
Head inside, meanwhile, and there’s a Regency feel to the hotel. In the lobby, a calm white palette paves the way for bold feature walls, gilt-framed mirrors and twinkling chandeliers.
As for the bedrooms, they’ve got a more casual feel. Think painted tiled floors, soft muslin curtains and large beds dressed in crisp cotton. Contemporary touches come in the form of air-conditioning, and satellite TVs. Plus sea views come as standard.
Last but not least, there’s the dining scene. Breakfast is a help-yourself affair, with a good mix of hot and cold dishes on offer. In the evenings, Italian classics line up alongside international favourites. When it’s warm outside, it’s worth having your meal out on the terrace – that way you’ll be able to enjoy the sea views while you eat.
