Casa Irene, Sorrento
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Casa Irene is a modern two bedrooms apartment located in the upper part of Sorrento, within walking distance (approximately 20 minutes) to the lively centre of the town, where guests can enjoy an abundance of restaurants and open air bars. The atmosphere is friendly and lively, without the unpleasantness of some resorts in other Mediterranean countries. The main street has all the famous designer labels and the late opening schedule, so that you will always have time for shopping. All ages can enjoy late evening entertainment in a safe environment. During the day there is the choice to spend a leisurely day on the beach, have a boat excursion to Capri only 30 minutes away, visit Pompei or even Naples.
Casa Irene boasts amazing views of the Gulf of Naples and Sorrento and a spacious terrace that extends around the main house, with various shaded areas. From the parking area, 12 steps will take you to the large terrace which is furnished with a table and chairs, barbeque and a pizza oven, ideal for 'alfresco' meals or simply to relax while enjoying the wonderful panorama. There is also a soft seating area with a sofa, table and a pool table. Here you will also find the swimming pool with sun beds, umbrellas and an external toilet with shower.
From the terrace you enter a spacious and modern kitchen equipped with fridge/freezer, oven, microwave, toaster and kettle. Further on the other side you will find the living room with sofas, a fireplace and dining area, with direct access to the outdoor area. There are two bedrooms, one double and one twin, both with Satellite TV and French doors to the outside.
An extra foldable bed can be added either to the twin bedroom (in this case the space surrounding the beds is reduced) or to the living room. There is one bathroom with shower. The apartment is fully air-conditioned (except for the kitchen) and it has WIFI internet.
From one side of the terrace, there is access via a path leading further up the hill to two small apartments:
1) a studio occupied by a long let tenant (at work most of the time) who has no use of any of the outdoor areas and swimming pool.
2) a one bedroom apartment which can be rented together with the two bedroom, in which case the use of the swimming pool will be private or if rented by two separated groups the pool will be shared, but the one bedroom apartment will have its own private outdoor furnished space and will not use the terrace outside the two bedroom apartment, but only the pool.

The Campania region
The vibrant city of NAPLES is the capital of the region Campania and the third-largest municipality in Italy, after Rome and Milan. Over the course of its long history, Naples has been the capital of duchies and kingdoms, and has consistently been a major cultural centre with a global sphere of influence, particularly during the Renaissance and Enlightenment eras. The hidden treasures and the soul of the city will take you in, while exploring monuments, churches and museums during the day, or while taking an evening walk in its lively streets after a Pizza or a coffee. Among the wide choice of museums, do not miss the National Archaeological Museum that features one of the most extensive collections of artefacts of the Roman Empire and many of the antiques unearthed at Pompeii and Herculaneum, the two towns buried by mud and ash after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the year 79 A.D.
"There is no region along the length of the Apennines that is so uneven with respect to space, certainly none that has such majestic mountains and such marine beauty". This quotation by an Italian historian and economist, who loved this region and crossed the Lattari Mountains in 1877, is the perfect introduction for the Sorrento and Amalfi Coast, declared UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. This part of Italy, where the mountains and the sea blend in perfect harmony, is unique for the natural environment and the geography, for the stunning views and the charming towns spread all along the coast.
Our self-catering accommodations, that include lovely apartments with shared pool and luxury villas with private pool, are the ideal option to enjoy an unforgettable holiday in this wonderful part of the Italian Peninsula. No matter if you choose a central apartment walking distance to restaurants and shops, or a luxury villa with stunning sea views: This experience will exceed your expectations!
