"La Salotta" is a light, airy, unique space created within our family's home. The spacious studio room has large windows and a balcony that are south facing giving it a very light feel. Inside or outside you can enjoy the stunning views of the Bay of Napoli, Vesuvio & Capri. The space is set out with separate zones for sleeping, relaxing, cooking/dining.
Just a 5mins walk is a Funicular station for easy access to the public transport system to reach all parts of Napoli, the Centro Storico (historic centre), the quartiere called Vomero, the metro and other nearby historic sites such as Pompeii, Ercolano, Campi Flegrei.
We are located in the quartiere called Chiaia, a semi-residential area of Napoli, rich in genuine character, located next to the Spanish quartiere and just below the upper quartiere Vomero and Continues down to sea level.
Our apartment is located on the 2nd floor (with elevator) within a classic C1900 Napolitan palazzo. We are within a 'parco' (Napolitan for private road with restricted access) that has a gated entrance and a 24x7 security guard.
Our palazzo is set back from the road in an elevated position making the apartment both tranquil & secure. The raised position makes the views from windows and balcony truly stunning. You'll have a 180 degree views taking in Vesuvius and sweep across the bay past Capri, Mergelina onto the Posilipo hills. The sunrises are spectacular and the sunsets turn the gulf to a multi coloured show. On clear days and with a long lens or binoculars, across the bay, you can see the entrance to the fabled Grotta Azzurra (Blue Grotto) on Capri. Also the town of Sorrento across the bay and even the whole caldera at the summit of Vesuvius.
On the main road outside the gate can be found almost everything needed. There are 2 funicular stations, one within 5mins the other 15mins walk, bars, gelato store, restaurants, various food stores (meat, fish, bread, fruit) and a medium sized supermarket.
Follow the same road and you can reach the Museo Nazionale (national museum) in 25min walk. Here you can view many of the Pompeii treasures recovered during excavations.
We will be happy to provide information and advice on Napoli and surrounds. Your stay with us will be authentic with both security & tranquility.
We look forward to welcoming you to stay.
