The Azzurra apartments are part of an an historical villa placed on a cliff that drops steeply down to the sea. The villa is located in the most ancient and elegant area of Sorrento, in the heart of the historical and tourist center.

The villa itself is an historical monument of Sorrento. It is an important piece of the landscape of Sorrento, for its elegance and beauty, and for its exceptional position on the volcanic cliff, centrally located between the tourist port and the beaches. It is not by chance that you will find the villa pictured in thousands of postcards.

While staying here, you will be living in a romantic piece of Sorrento's history.

The construction of the villa took place during the nineteenth century, a period during which rich intellectual travelers, composers and poets, traveled from the north of Europe to the south of Italy, discovering the beauty and enchantment of over two thousand years of history. As it happened, a rich German baron, Von Gunderrode, after having traveled around the whole world, chose this place as his residence.

He had several good reasons for choosing this spot, and it is for these same reasons that modern-day travelers are spellbound by this amazing villa. From the large and splendid terrace, placed directly above the sea, you will be able to admire the incomparable scenery of Sorrento and the tall cliffs that dive into the sea. A bit further in the distance, your sight will rest on the large arc of the Gulf of Naples, with the characteristic cone of Mount Vesuvius right in the middle of it. Closer by, you will be able to see other elegant historical mansions, which now are luxury hotels.

If you lean from the balustrade of the terrace, you will see the green-azure sea of Sorrento right below you, with its long, thin strips of beaches, colored by lounges and umbrellas. And there are many more things to delight your senses... the mild climate, the perfume of oranges and lemons.

The villa stands on top of ancient Roman walls, and it is a masterpiece of elegance and gracefulness, from an architectural point of view. On every level there are large terraces and tall windows, built to maximize your enjoyment of the sun, the sky and the sea of this fortunate land.

From the villa, walking along a pathway, you will be able to reach the sea and the beach facilities.

The Villa is just a few steps from the harbor of Sorrento, which can be reached along a pedestrian-only pathway. From the harbor you will be able to board the ferries and the hydrofoils that go to Capri, Ischia, Positano, Amalfi and Naples. The Circumvesuviana train station, which connects Sorrento to Pompeii and to the train station in Naples, is also a short walk from the villa, and so is the bus stop.

From Villa Azzurra you can walk to the most ancient and charming spots of Sorrento, such as the Cathedral and the Cloister of Saint Francis, the gardens, which extend themselves, terrace after terrace, towards the sea and the magnificent view of the Gulf of Naples, Procida and Mt. Vesuvius. Also, you will be able to stroll along Corso Italia, or along the charming and lively alleys of the historical center of Sorrento, to discover the many products made by local artisans.

It will be an unforgettable stay.

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.

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.

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.
