Casa Miriam C is one of the holiday homes available in a small complex. Please find a general description of the complex below, and please scroll further down for a description of Casa Miriam C.

The Miriam apartments are part of an old country house and is surrounded by an orchard.  The complex is on the road which links Sorrento and Massa Lubrense and it is near the antique walkway that takes you to the Capo di Sorrento and the famous rocky beach known as “Bagni della Regina Giovanna”.

You can reach the beach on foot by following an antique walkway paved in stone and that winds between cultivated terraced olive groves which descend towards the sea. This is a walk not to miss: you go down this shaded path that has been dug out of the stone walls and you enter into a forgotten dimension, without traffic or noise. At the last bend you are taken by surprise by the dazzling view of the coast and the sea. You have arrived at the Capo di Sorrento which is the headline that separates the Bay of Sorrento from the smaller Bay of Marina di Puolo. Your glance takes in, on the side, the charming Bay of Sorrento and to the front, the Gulf of Naples with the Vesuvius in the centre. It is setting of such extraordinary beauty that it will stay forever in your heart.

From the path on the headland sheer above the sea you can see the famous ruins of the roman villa of Pollio Felice. This place was chosen by the Romans to build their sumptuous holiday homes due to its beauty and mild climate. Pollio Felice house had its own private berth and a small pool of water enclosed by rocks and connected to the sea by a cleft in the rock. Here the matron Romans could have a swim far away from watching eyes. In more recent times, at the end of the 1400s, Queen Giovanna d’Angio loved to take a dip and it is for this reason that this small suggestive bay is still known today as the “Bagni della Regina Giovanna”.

There is a pathway that starts from the headland where there are the ruins of the roman villa which takes you to a bathing establishment. Here you can enjoy swimming in crystal clear water and diving from the rocks but it is important to be able to swim otherwise it is dangerous. From here, on foot, you can reach the coarse, gravelly beach of Marina di Puolo. It can also be easily reached by car from Casa Miriam.

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.

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.
