Well we finally made it to our hotel, Il Gabbiano, in Baia at about midday having arrived in Naples from Gatwick at about 09.40 this morning. The Easy Jet flight was uneventful and on time, although our rather stout, middle aged air hostess was rather formidable. She barked and growled at all the passengers for no particular reason. Bull dog chewing a wasp sprung to mind! Check in at Naples Airport was efficient and we were soon on the shuttle bus to the car hire centre where we picked up our little Kia (the DH was disappointed it was not a Fiat 500). We plugged in our Italian Sat Nav (brought with us from the UK), typed in what we thought was the postcode for the hotel and off we set. The DH is used to driving in foreign countries so it wasn't nearly as bad as we had been led to believe, although I admit we purposely avoided the centre of Naples! Approximately 35 minutes later we arrived at our "destination", not our hotel but a little corner shop in Baia. DH hopped out to ask for directions and came back about 15 minutes later with two bottles of homemade, local wine and some vague instructions of how to get to Il Gabbiano. Well 2.5 hours later we finally got there via the scenic route shall we say. The hotel is up a very steep hill along a windy road, far from the village but worth it for the spectacular views from every room. Our room is very comfortable, a double with en suite shower and large balcony over looking the bay. It seems a popular place for weddings, one is underway as I type, so the restaurant and seating areas are quite posh and filled with smartly dressed guests. We were hot and tired after our early start so didn't fancy dressing up, instead we caught the hotel shuttle bus into Baia and had lovely pizza and salad at a little harbour front cafe called Il Tucano. Afterwards we paddled in the sea and then caught the shuttle back to Il Gabbiano. The wedding was and still is in full swing so we spent some time on the roof top terrace soaking up the rays (a lovely 30 deg C) then cooled off in the spa before retiring to our balcony to drink our homemade wine and play our day tomorrow. So much to see and do, just a case of fitting it all in the 6 days we have left!
