The atmosphere in Sorrento 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, 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 folding 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 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 property is about 5 minutes drive away from the center of Sorrento or 20 minutes walking via a shortcut.
The road is suitable only for a small car (Opel Corsa type or similar).
