Antico Casale Ruoppo Punta Licosa - Sorrento Coast
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Punta Licosa is a part of a Villa (Antico Casale Ruoppo), a recently renovated former farm house wich is placed on the hills of the peninsula's south coast of Sorrento and offers a magnificent view over the Gulf of Salerno and the beginning of the Amalfitanian Coast with the Li Galli and Vetara islands.
It is a ground-floor three-room apartment of 45m2 consisting of a bedroom with sea view equipped with a double bed, a second small bedroom equipped with a single bed, bathroom with shower, a fully equipped small kitchen (two electric hot-plates, electric cooking-stove, fridge), and a small dining area. A small panoramic garden 10m away belongs to the apartment (garden furniture is available). A washing machine is available in the same building outside the apartment.
The building is surrounded by a 5000m2 garden area where - among olive trees, wine yards, and vegetable gardens - lawns invite to a sun bath and the regionally typical pergolas create shadow-fresh spots. Inside the farm house's ground floor you can still see the millstone and olive press used here in former times to produce olive oil.
Suspended in the balance between countryside and sea and located where the Sorrentinian Peninsula and the Amalfitanian Coast pass into one another, the apartment forms a perfect starting point for excursions to the region's most important sites of tourist, cultural, and archaeological interest and is the ideal place for a vacation where culture, relaxation, regional tradition, and the discovery of old and new tastes harmoniously combine. It is as well excellently suited for a vacation with small children.

The Campania region
PUNTA LICOSA is located in the very beginning of the Amalfitanian Coast, app. 7 km from Positano and 6 km from Sorrento the latter being well connected by public transport facilities to the main sites of interest of the region. From Sorrento, there are regular services of ferries and hydrofoil to the islands of Capri and Ischia and to Naples as well as local trains (Circumvesuviana) to Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Naples. A network of local busses (SITA) links Sorrento to the villages of the Sorrento Peninsula, and a swift-boat express, the so-called metro del mare, runs several times a day from Sorrento along the coast of the Gulfs of Naples and Salerno.
PUNTA LICOSA (Antico Casale Ruoppo) is placed on a hill about 300m high over sea-level, far from noise and traffic of the tourist centres. The smooth wind blowing constantly from the sea keeps temperatures comfortable up here even during the hottest weeks of the summer. The premises are accessible from the public road by a 800m long narrow street. Due to this secluded location it is highly recommended either to bring one's own car or to rent a car from one of the local car rental agencies.
The main beaches on both shores of the Sorrentinian Peninsula are 10 to 15 minutes by car from PUNTA LICOSA (Antico Casale Ruoppo), e.g. the beach of Marina del Cantone (Nerano) with its crystal-blue waters, where you can supplement your beach activities with a boat trip along the coast, a walk over the cliffs or a savoury sea-food dish on a terrace over the shore. Who likes walking and rambling can join the beaches directly from PUNTA LICOSA Antico Casale Ruoppo by a locally rather steep panorama path passing the Chapel dei Santi Pietro e Paolo and leading to the Baia di Crapolla (app. 40 minutes). In the opposite direction, the same path joins a network of labelled rambling pathsmaintained by the Italian Alpine Club that encompasses the whole Sorrentinian Peninsula.

"Apartment with a view!"
Punta Licosa is situated in a lovely area with a wonderful view overlooking the sea. It's surrounded by gardens with fresh produce available, where you can sit and eat. We were however rather bit… More

This is a very beautiful place. We spent one week at Punta Licosa appartement of Antico Casale Ruoppo, and were busy to discover just half of the surrounding's must sees. The appartement is nicely furnished, equipped and clean, with a tremendous view over the sea from the large bedroom. The second bedroom is very small, indeed.
We enjoyed a lot living in real Italy for this short period, among enormously friendly local people and with few other tourists around, but with everything at hand we needed to be independent. By the way, there are two really good restaurants within walking distance.
Essential: you will definitely need a car to access the interesting places and most beautiful beaches. And make sure you get the uppermost parking lot at Antico Casale; access to the lower lots is very narrow, and it has been funny to see how Italians manage to get their car a full turn in order to leave.
En somme: super sympa!
