It’s not the splendor or the richness that makes a hotel worth of international recognitions. The real luxury is the beauty, the culture, the art, the soul.
When you talk about “a dream holiday” or “a magic stay” you run the risk of going too far, making these words losing importance. But this is not the case of the Bellevue Syrene, and this is not said by the owners of this well-known Relais & Chateaux hotel in Sorrento: the TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Hotel Awards is one of the most important recognition for the hotel industry, and evaluate the best facilities in the world based on international travelers ratings. The Bellevue Syrene has been awarded as the best Hotel in Italy and in Europe and was also on the podium, in third place, among the world’s best Hotels. The most important value for those who work in the hospitality industry is definitely being able to make the guest’s stay a totally enjoyable experience, preventing any need and avoiding problems or difficulties, in order to make the holiday a pure pleasure.
For this reason, the Bellevue Syrene is also very pleased to receive the Relais&Chateaux Savoir-faire Trophy 2016, in recognition of the great efforts of all its staff in communicating the sense of hospitality and courtesy that is deeply rooted in the culture of the Sorrento Coast.
Finally, a special recognition for the Roccia Suite, crowned 2015’s Sexiest Bedroom from the site Mr&Mrs Smith. Admittedly, this award is not a surprise: the romance of the “La Roccia” is indisputable, being the perfect suite for the wedding night or to celebrate important moments.

“Not an ordinary market” is the slogan used by the first edition of the “Earth Market” in Piano di Sorrento in 2016. It is a way to discover the excellent products of this territory and to purchase good and tasty products consistent with the principles of periodicity, sustainability and equity that distinguish the spirit of Slow Food.
Slow Food, the international wine and food association born in 1989 which conducts the philosophy of healthy and responsible eating, promotes in the entire world a series of “Earth markets” which periodically offer communities the chance to meet local producers and to buy good products in an environmentally friendly way and at a fair price. Smaller farmers and artisans who realise high quality products are also included in the Earth Markets which are then sold as local products at a reasonable price. An Earth Market is also present in Piano di Sorrento which is held every second Sunday of the month in the food and vegetable market area of Piazza della Repubblica. Honey, oil, wine, handcrafted beer, nuts, cheese, bread but also traditional tools used by our grandmothers, all condensed in a tasteful itinerary which represents an alternative and fun way to know the beauty, the richness and the culture of this land. The next date for the Earth Market in Piano di Sorrento is Sunday, January 10th. As usual a trumpet sound will mark the beginning of the sales, from 9 am to 1 pm, but the most awaited event is the “Flavour laboratory” dedicated to hazelnuts so to learn all of their possible features and variations
