Overview

Sorrento Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 double bedrooms, 1 double sofa bed, 2 bathrooms Sleeps 4-6

In the summer, when the sun lingers into the evening time, there is nothing more enjoyable than a walk in the timeless village of Marina Grande. A fishing harbour with a medieval flavour, Marina Grande is connected to the historical centre of Sorrento by an old zigzagging stone staircase. Still home to a fleet of traditional wooden boats, the sunbathers share the beach with fishermen mending their nets by hand. And the local family run restaurants benefit from the wonderful fresh seafood caught daily.

You will find Aurora Resort on an ancient street, just 10 metres from the sea. Recently renovated, the first floor apartment is perfect for a party of up to six people.

The apartment has air conditioning, although the temperature usually remains agreeable even in August. The cool atmosphere provided by the thick walls was appreciated by the fishermen who used the building for storage purposes until the first half of the last century.

Walking up the single flight of steps to the apartment, you will see two front doors, one leading into the living room and the main apartment, and the other leading into one of the double bedrooms.

The living room is simply decorated, light and spacious, with a dining table for four. There is an armchair, a double sofa bed and a television. Double doors open onto a small balcony where you can appreciate the stunning sea views as you taste the salt air of the waters just outside. A kitchenette is in this living area with a gas hob, microwave, fridge freezer and coffee maker.

One double bedroom and the main bathroom are accessed from the living room. The bathroom is white with a shower, wash basin, toilet and hairdryer. The comfortable double bedroom is tastefully furnished with everything you will need. A cot and high chair are available on request.

The second double bedroom has a private entrance, next to the main entrance, and has an en suite bathroom with a shower, wash basin, toilet and hairdryer.

A car is not recommended for a stay at Aurora Resort. However, if you choose to bring one, parking is available 500m away for 20 Euros per day. Access to the centre of Sorrento is easy, by foot, or via bus. From here, the delights of the town and attractions further afield are easily reached. Why not take a day trip to Pompeii or to the Island of Capri?

If you are looking to experience the charm of days gone by, in a comfortable apartment next to the sea, Aurora Resort ticks all of the boxes.

Please note, there will be a final cleaning charge of € 50 added to the rental period at time of the booking.

PS II.: Note: From 1 April to 31 October the Municipal Council of Sorrento has instituted a mandatory tourist tax on all temporary residents.

The tourist tax must be added to the total amount of stay and has to be pay cash at the arrival.

Love Sorrento

  • 2 of 5
We decided to stay in Marina Grande for this visit to Sorrento. We loved the area, scenery and restaurants. It was about a 15 minute walk to downtown - up hill one way - or if you get smart, a bus ride up. Just a little removed from what we love about Sorrento. The Aurora was a disappointment for us. A little difficult to get to with luggage and we only had carry on's. It was very lacking in even basic amenities. Not enough dishes or wine glasses for a party of 4. This could be a wonderful retreat if a little upgrading is done.

Marina Grande is the perfect location to sense the naturalness of Sorrento. This old picturesque fishing harbour, with his own traditions (like the celebrations for S.Anna, at the end of July), his characteristic small shops, his old narrow streets, his fragrances, create a unique true Mediterranean atmosphere.

The city of Sorrento and its neighbouring cities, provides the tourist numerous historical and cultural sites to visit.

The Basilica of Saint Antonino

Erected during the X Century in honour of the patron saint of the sailors, the Basilica of Saint Antonino stands in the historical centre of the city, in front of the Municipal House (Town Hall). The history of this famous church is as interesting as troubled: in 1300 it became the residence of the 'Battenti Brotherhood', or better a heretical movement that took its first steps in Naples, while in the XVII century an impressive restoration has been carried out by the Theatin Brothers, a religious institute of consecrating life.

Sorrento Cathedral

The impressive building has been erected in the XI century and it numbers among its beauties some frescos of renowned Neapolitan artists. At the top of the tower you can admire an excellent clock tiled with majolica.

The Cloister of San Francesco

The most delicious among the Sorrento monuments is certainly the Cloister of San Francesco. Being renovated many times, the Cloister shows a characteristic mixture of architectural styles, which go from the late gothic to the Renaissance, while the adjoining dining hall preserves all its trecento peculiarities.

Correale Museum of Terranova

In a wonderful palace that overlooks the Gulf of Naples, by the central Lauro Square, it's housed the Correale Museum, which, among its rarities, numbers a singular collection of inlaid furniture, majolics and ceramics of Capodimonte, as well as different paintings of Neapolitan artists.

Sedile Dominova

It's an ancient building in which the old nobility of the town used to gather in order to legislate and make important decisions in administrative and economic fields. The monuments is enriched with a glazed dome that encloses the arcade.

Sorrento is also a perfect getaway to reach the other tourist attractions of the area, like the unique archaeological sites of Pompei and Herculaneum, the wonderful city of Naples and his history and traditions, the famous impressive Vesuvius volcano, the legendary island of Capri, Ischia and his world-known thermal baths, Procida and his fascinating naturalness.
