La Culla - Suore Oblate Del Bambin Gesu (CAS106)

Sorrento Campania

House of the Suore Oblate del Bambino Gesu

La Culla - Suore Oblate Del Bambin Gesu is an intimate and tranquil guest house ideal for a peaceful retreat. Nearby and easily accessible are some of southern Italy's most famous attractions, such as Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius.

Central Sorrento attractions include many stunning churches and basilicas, as well as some great museums, which are well worth a look.

The historic quarter of Sorrento still retains its Roman grid of narrow streets and was an important trading post in the middle ages. The town is also a good base for exploring the Amalfi Coast, Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius.
 
Rated 4.5 out of 5
Our stay in this beautiful monastery is a lovely holiday memory. Sr Monica made us feel welcome, the room was clean, and a simple breakfast was provided to start the day. The view from the terrace towards Vesuvius provided a perfect backdrop for photos and also place to sit and relax. A definite recommendation.

This was another beautiful monastery stay. We could not have been more pleased with the place, the location, the large room with air-conditioning, the lovely big bathroom, and the simply breath-taking views from the large terrace. It looks out to a stunning sweep of the Mediterranean dotted with boats, and in the evening it was simply magnificent to watch the sun setting and the lights of Sorrento gradually coming on below. We even had fireworks as a surprise treat one night. Be prepared to walk about a mile to the center of town. It seemed long at first (and very hot in June), but we quickly got into the groove, and it wasn't bad at all. The only challenge for us was walking uphill with our suitcases the first day. (We arranged for a shuttle back to the Naples train station on our last day, and it picked us up at the monastery, which was even better.) Sister Monica was kind and helpful, and the other sisters all seemed friendly and welcoming--even though we communicated with limited Italian and a lot of gestures! Breakfast was simple--but it worked for us. Fruit, bread, cake, yogurt, and coffee. I would definitely recommend this monastery, and we would definitely go back. It was a perfect jumping-off point for taking day trips out to Positano, Amalfi, and exploring the surrounding areas, too.

We loved staying here. The Sisters were so pleasant and kind. The views from our room were breathtaking. The only complaint is parking. While there is parking available the lot is VERY constricted and doesn't offer much maneuverability. That being said we could not have been happier staying here. If ever we come to visit Capri again we will look this place up.

We had a wonderful stay at La Culla. The building is amazing and there is everything that you could need. Sister Monica was very accommodating, particularly changing breakfast time to allow us to leave early in the morning, and going out of her way to make us comfortable.

20 minute walk from train station so be prepared. Service though was excellent, rooms were clean and very comfortable beds. Great sleep in spite of train line next door. Breakfast was really good!
