There the stairs take guests to the shared areas and the swimming pool.Charm and warmth define this precious apartment in Sorrento.. ExteriorsNestled on a hill of Nerano, a portion of Massa Lubrense on the Sorrento coast, this historical residence with its 19th century  ambience will set you at a heavenly beautiful setting. Part of the way to these  apartments in Sorrento  is an old mule track that goes up for quite a few metres  to lead to the  residence housing them. Antiquity and modernity meet at the apartments: a precious Moresque patio surrounded by stone arches and biological agriculture, an old orchard and all the modern comforts in the apartments. The way to Nerano takes visitors to the foot of Mount San Constanzo, the mountain that shelters the village from the sun and guarantees cool evenings to the villagers.In  17th century the residence was erected in a medieval suburb. At the time, the lemon groves occupied extensive areas  and agriculture was another important economic activity. For the high quality of the lemon produce, the best on the Sorrento coast, it was  chosen to be exported to the USA and England. The Farisani family  made changes to the building’s structure. The result was the beautiful residence we can admire today. The building became their aristocratic rural residence. The property was bought by the Cerulli family from Calabria who kept it for two centuries and then lady Luisa Cerulli left it in her will to the family La Via  coming from Quecy, France.  From 1904 to 1988 the premises belonged to the Marquis of Villarena Pietro as his seaside resort. The marquis had been born in Naples in 1896, he graduated from the Law school at Federico II University. He volunteered in the Great War and got the Tenant of Artillery degree. He was decorated with medals for valour and promoted to officer under General Enrico Caviglia. His passion for philosophy reaped its fruit: Mente e Realtà (Ed. La Nuova Italia, Firenze, 1947) in which he  strongly disagrees with Immanentism by Croce. When he moved into Nerano, he devoted himself to writing poems and erotic verses. The marquis also took care of the produce and  way lemons were wrapped to be sent abroad and personally took part in the wrapping process.  In 1977 he was rewarded with  the honorary citizenship when Mente e Realtà was 30 of publication. A bronze sculpture was located in one of the halls of Palazzo La Via. The statue made by Marisa Ciardiello honoured the marquis in the centenary of his birth in 1996.During the post-war  famous  intellectuals gather in the property. Gaetano Salvemini, Renato Caccioppoli, Clotilde Marchieri, Francesco d’Avalos, Giorgio Punzo, Harold Hacton,  Roger Pierrefitte and Sandro Penna enjoyed the beautiful inspiring atmosphere of this residence. The present owner received the historically priceless property in 1985 and devoted himself to renew it and give it all its splendour. For scuba diving lovers there is a scuba diving centre nearby which offers guided dives just 1 km away from  these apartments in Sorrento Guest will be able to hire a boat with skipper  just 1 km away on a pebbled beach  where there are  celebrated restaurants to eat out after a nice boat trip and a stunning lido to leave the world behind and succumb to pleasure.Children can enjoy a play area fitted with slides and swings.

From  all the rooms guests will be able to admire a view of the bay. These independent apartments in Sorrento have been decorated in an ancient and fine style. The openings let the smell of lemon drift into the rooms.  Opening the restaurant has been one of the dreams of the present owner.  "Dolce far niente" has finally come true.  The restaurant  offers an unsurpassed combination of flavours of homemade dishes, the smell of lemons coming from the grove, the view of the bay of Naples and Li Galli Island, the home of mermaids on the horizon, enthroned by the pleasure of doing nothing but feeling pleasure. The menu includes homemade pasta with local products and sea fruit and fish. The selection of wines  offers only local white and red wines.  “Dolce far Niente" opens every  evening and at lunchtime only upon request. The restaurant offers its premises to celebrate special occasions such as anniversaries  and weddings.Among the services provided upon request there is internet access, information and excursion reservations, laundry service and, at an extra charge, a cot and high chair for young children.
