Appartamento Isabella is a charming apartment that is part of a villa of the eighteenth century located in a large historical garden directly above the sea. It sleeps four people. It is appoximately 80 square meters (860 square feet). It features a shared swimming pool, a shared garden, air conditioning (please read description below to check in which rooms the units are installed) and winter heating.
You will be roughly 1 km (0.6 miles) from the center of Sorrento, a few steps from restaurants and shops. You will find the beach directly below you (you will reach it using an elevator).
Appartamento Isabella is located on the first floor of an ancient villa. You will reach it from the garden going up a walkway that includes approximately 30 stairway steps.
You will not need a car to stay at Appartamento Isabella. If you do have one, you will be able to park it in a parking space.
Appartamento Isabella is indeed a special place to spend a vacation in Sorrento: the building is placed inside a centuries-old park, which also contains an historical building, which used to be the summer residence of the royal family of the Bourbon. The Bourbon reigned over Naples from 1734 to 1860. After the reign of the Bourbon, the building became the residence of princes of the family of the Russian Czars.
In this place, so beautiful that princes and kings chose it for their own vacations, you will be able to feel and enjoy the spell of the coast of Sorrento, which inspired poets and musicians, and which has made these places famous all world round.
Imagine a huge botanic garden of 27.000 square meters (290.000 square feet), with well-kept pathways that run through it, filled with tall trees and flowers and with a huge terrace placed directly above the sea. From this terrace you will enjoy a splendid view of the gulf of Naples and of the unmistakable cone of Mount Vesuvius.
At the two ends of the terrace are two masterpieces of architecture: on one side, the ancient Bourbon building, on the other side, a modern luxury hotel designed by famous Italian architect Giò Ponti in the sixties. There is enough to start dreaming... you will spend your vacation surrounded by beautiful things, collected, over time, all in this space by people who have loved the natural beauty of these places, and who have been able to exalt it. You will be able to stroll along the fresh pathways of the garden during the hot hours of the day, enjoy the services of a luxury hotel and relax by the beautiful swimming pool, go to the sea, if you want, always with the sight of one of the world's most beautiful seascapes in front of you. And when the sun sets, on the terrace by the sea a romantic piano bar opens: you will be able to end your day with the show of the light of the gulf of Naples, sitting at the bar and listening to the sweet words of "Torna a Surriento".
The ancient villa where Appartamento Isabella is located is just a few meters from the swimming pool and from the sea, surrounded by the green and by the quiet of the park.
If you would rather like to swim in the sea, you will be able to enter the beach facilities paying a daily extra directly at the reception of the villa. The beach facilities, located at the foot of the cliff, are very characteristic. They can be reached either with an elevator or descending an ancient stairway cut into the cliff itself.
Appartamento Isabella 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 Appartamento Isabella.

It was good that you had access to the hotel so that if you wanted breakfast/dinner you could have it. The location was good and having access to the hotel shuttle bus was also very useful in terms of getting into Sorrento. With four adults having a shower the last person had to suffer the water becoming cold at some point. It may be worth getting a larger tank for the hot water at some stage.
Good service provided from Summer In Italy throughout the process.
We loved the location and the use of the pool. The gardens are beautiful.
We loved the old villa, pool, and extensive grounds. Appartamento Isabella itself was clean and spacious but could benefit from some updating.
Wiring in kitchen was spotty with only one awkwardly placed outlet and no extension cords. Range needs work as lighting the burners was touch and go. Living room lamp not working. Basic kitchen items such as a can opener were nonexistent. BUT, the desk was very accommodating and had maintenance people over immediately and repeatedly to assure us that things were repaired while we were there. We really appreciated their attention to our comments.
Summer In Italy was a pleasure to deal with. All of the online staff responded immediately and were understanding and flexible when a minor issue about our timing came up. We would definitely use the site again. Good work by all!
Appartamento Isabella is a great place to stay.
It is somewhat secluded but yet very close to the hotel and the sea. The huge pool is also right next door. The apartment is very large and the living room is especially big. The beach area is FANTASTIC, and includes a small restaurant. My only issue is the hardness of the mattresses, but every mattress I have slept on in Europe is that way.
The view from the balcony next to the hotel is just amazing. You can easily see Naples, Sorrento, and Mount Vesuvius. It was so nice that my friend proposed to his girlfriend at the balcony while we were there. And they plan to get married at the hotel next year.
We enjoyed the apartment very much and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet and comfortable stay in Sorrento.
It would have been nice to have WiFi in the apartment, but it was only a few steps to the hotel where it was available at no charge.
We had a fabulous time staying at the Apartmento Isabella. It was perfect for our group (4 women). The gardens around the apartment are BEAUTIFUL!!
The beds are comfortable and the rooms have air conditioning! We never figured out how to turn the gas on for coffee (but we could have gotten help if we wished) but found a coffee shop right down the street that made great cappuccinos! And being a part of such a wonderful hotel made it really great. Giovanni, the concierge, was amazing! But the staff at the beach, the restaurant, the bars as well as the driver were all such a pleasure!
You were very easy to work with and I would definitely use you again if I get the chance to return to Italy!
