Appartamento Isabella is a splendid apartment, for four people, which stretches on the whole first story of a beautiful villa of the eighteenth century, located in a large historical garden directly above the sea.

As a guest of the apartment, you will have free access to a large sea-water

swimming pool, as well as, paying a small extra, to the private beach which lies at the bottom of the cliff where the villa and the garden are.

Appartamento Isabella is indeed a special place to spend a vacation in Sorrento: the building is placed inside a centuries-old

park, which also contains an historical building, which used to be the summer residence of the royal family of the Bourbon. The Bourbon reigned over Naples from 1734 to 1860. After the reign of the Bourbon, the building became the residence of princes of the family of the Russian Czars.

In this place, so beautiful that princes and kings chose it for their own vacations, you will be able to feel and enjoy the spell of the coast of Sorrento, which inspired poets and musicians, and which has made these places famous all world round.

Imagine a huge botanic garden of 27.000 square meters (290.000 square feet), with well-kept pathways that run through it, filled with tall trees and flowers and with a huge terrace placed directly above the sea. From this terrace you will enjoy a splendid view of the gulf of Naples and of the unmistakable cone of Mount Vesuvius.

At the two ends of the terrace are two masterpieces of architecture: on one side, the ancient Bourbon building, on the other side, a modern luxury hotel designed by famous Italian architect Giò Ponti in the sixties.

There is enough to start dreaming... you will spend your vacation surrounded by beautiful things, collected, over time, all in this space by people who have loved the natural beauty of these places, and who have been able to exalt it.

You will be able to stroll along the fresh pathways of the garden during the hot hours of the day, enjoy the services of a luxury hotel and relax by the beautiful swimming pool, go to the sea, if you want, always with the sight of one of the world's most beautiful seascapes in front of you.

And when the sun sets, on the terrace by the sea a romantic piano bar opens: you will be able to end your day with the show of the light of the gulf of Naples, sitting at the bar and listening to the sweet words of "Torna a Surriento".

The ancient villa where Appartamento Isabella is located is just a few meters from the swimming pool and from the sea, surrounded by the green and by the quiet of the park.

You will reach the apartment through an external stair, that takes you directly to the first floor of the villa. You will enter a wide living room, where you will find a sitting area and a dining area. Two tall glass doors and a window open on the green of the park and on a garden of orange trees. A small and well equipped kitchen is connected to the living room. The kitchen is equipped with a 4-burner gas stove, a refrigerator and a washing machine.

There are two bedrooms: one has a double bed, the other has two single beds. From the bedrooms, looking through the tall glass door, you will have a nice view of the pathways of the park. There are two bathrooms, one of them with a bath tub and a shower, the other with a shower. The furnishing is enjoyable and welcoming. The apartment is equipped with air conditioning and TV. A reserved parking space is also available.

Appartamento Isabella is 1 km (approximately half a mile) from the center of Sorrento, and it is located in an area where you will find shops and restaurants.

Each of the guests of the apartment will also have a deck chair by the shared swimming pool (open until 6 pm), as well as a beach towel.

If you would rather like to swim in the sea, you will be able to enter the beach facilities paying a daily extra directly at the reception of the villa. The beach facilities, located at the foot of the cliff, are very characteristic. They can be reached either with an elevator or descending an ancient stairway cut into the cliff itself.

From Sorrento you will be able to board a ferry to Capri, as well as to the other islands of the gulf of Naples, to Naples itself, Amalfi, Positano and the other villages of the coast of Amalfi. You will also be able to easily reach the coast of Amalfi by car or bus.

To reach Positano, for instance, it only takes half an hour along a road that shows breathtaking views of one of the world's most beautiful landscapes at every curve. From Sorrento, you will also reach the excavations of Pompeii in half an hour by car, or otherwise catching a local Circumvesuviana train. Caserta and its beautiful Royal Palace are also quickly reached.

The Campania region

If you think you have no idea of where Campania is, think again. This fascinating land, rich in gulfs, islands and legendary places, is home to the charming landscapes of the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento, the Cilento National Park, Capri and Ischia.

The Campania region is situated in the South of Italy and bounded by the Tyrrhenian Sea (that’s the name of that stretch of Mediterranean). The region is divided into five provinces, whose capitals are Salerno, Caserta, Avellino, Benevento and Naples (Napoli). Naples is also the capital city of the region itself. With roughly 6 million of residents, half of which lives around the city of Naples, Campania has more people than Finland, packed in an area which is 200 times smaller.

If you are fond of archeology, architecture, or simply want to see history come back to life, Campania is a must. The archeological heritage is huge: the temples left by the Greeks in Paestum, the buried towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the remains of Velia, the masterpieces kept in the museums, the churches… and, of course!, the Royal Palace of Caserta, built to be the most sumptuous palace of Europe, with its 1200 rooms.

If the majesty you prefer is the majesty of nature, Campania will not disappoint you. The sandy beaches and the crystal-clear waters of the Cilento National Park, the amazing scenery of the Amalfi Coast, the islands of the Gulf of Naples are just a sampler of what lies ahead of you. From the underground depths of the caves of Pertosa to the heights of Mount Vesuvius, there is something for everyone. By the way, being Mount Vesuvius an active volcano, we respectfully suggest you visit sooner rather than later.

An outline of Campania would not be complete without a mention of its culinary tradition. Many of the world-known Italian dishes have their roots in Campania: pizza, spaghetti, mozzarella, limoncello, cannelloni… Italians know Campania well for being one of the regions that offer the best food, and definitely the region where you can taste the best coffee. Espresso, cappuccino and now interesting variations on the theme such as hazelnut coffee make the day of the residents of Campania, and will make yours as well.

So don’t miss your chance to enjoy the holiday of a lifetime in this beautiful land, where art, history, nature and tradition come together to offer unforgettable thrills.

Sorrento, Campania

Sorrento is one of the best known resorts in Italy, situated on a tract of coastline of unrivalled beauty, on the northern slope of the Sorrentine Peninsula. This sheltered spot, surrounded by luxuriant hills where vines, olives and above all high quality citrus fruits are grown, was once the site of choice where the wealthy Romans used to build their villas, and it has been a highly prestigious retreat since 700. Sorrento has been nicknamed “La Gentile” because of the gentleness of its climate, the refinement of its streets and gardens and of the friendliness of its inhabitants.

Sorrento nestles on a tufaceous terrace, 50 meters high, which falls steeply down to a blue, crystalline sea. This peculiar geographical position gives it a special character. The city does not have a promenade, but looks down, like a balcony, over the port and two Marinas, with unexpectedly charming views. Access to the sea is gained mostly via stairs, passageways carved into the rock and lifts.

The origin of the name Sorrento – Surrentum – is poetically dated back to the Sirens who, legend has it, lived in the rocks of the gulf, from where they tried in vain to ensnare Ulysses with their deadly song. The city’s origin is very old: sited in an area that was inhabited in prehistoric times, Sorrento was probably founded by Greek settlers and then subjected to the dominion of the Sannites. In the third century B.C., the Romans who, in the first century B.C., established a Municipality there occupied it. In the early centuries of the Sorrento Empire, it became an important resort and abounded in splendid villas with their flourishing gardens and numerous temples. From 420 on it became a Bishopric. During the Middle Ages it was dominated by various powers; thereafter, its history was identified most often with that of the Reign of Naples. In 1558 it underwent the cruelest attack by the Saracens who sacked it. Following this episode, a wall and defense and watchtowers, placed on neighboring spurs, surrounded the city. In 1554 the poet Torquato Tasso, Sorrento’s most famous son, was born.

In the old part of Sorrento the Greek-Roman structure of the town can still be detected, with the parallel streets intersecting at right angles.

Today, at the heart of the city, stands Tasso Square where, besides the monument of the famous poet, is the statue of St. Antonio, patron saint of Sorrento. Corso Italia begins from the square; a lively, elegant street, with a wealth of shops and meeting place.

The Duomo, of medieval origin, was constructed in the fifteenth century; the beautiful door on the right side dates back to this period.

Very interesting is the Palazzo Verniero, with wonderful decorations of Arab-Hispanic designs on the window. One of the most typical monuments of Sorrento is the Sedile Dominova, where the nobles of the urban quarters would come together. It is a fifteenth century loggia, with two large rounded arches surmounted by a seventeenth century majolica cupola. The basilica of S. Antonio, which guards the sepulcher of the city’s patron saint, has an ancient portal from the eleventh century.

In the charming cloister of the church of St. Francesco, with interlaced arches in the Arab style, are held classical music concerts.

The Villa Comunale, with a wealth of majestic trees and flourishing flowerbeds, extends towards the sea with terrace from which one can enjoy a magnificent view of the Bay of Naples, from Procida to Vesuvius. Beside Vittoria square can be seen the remains of the temple of Venus. Of Roman origins, Sorrento still retains the southern gate, at the beginnings of via Tasso, as well as that at the Grand Marina.

The northern side of Sorrento is bordered by gorges, which fall steeply down to the sea. Eastwards lies the calm mirror of the Marina Piccola, protected by a long dock, which constitutes the port where the boats for Naples and Capri berth. The Marina Grande, a wide cove equipped with swimming facilities, is the city’s beach.
