Along the Coast of Sorrento, such picturesque little roads framed by tuff walls
were used to divide the precious citrus-cultivated properties, allowing only the
passage of small vehicles loaded with citrus fruit and pulled by donkeys...
nowadays, (luckily) you will see that the roads are identical to the way they
used to be in the past, featuring even the same size as before! However, only
few cars cross (and really slowly) such little roads every day. Just forget all
the stress of city streets!
Villa Carissa is subdivided in seven small apartments distributed in three
levels, each with a patio or private terrace furnished with a table and chairs.
Available to guests is also a terrace on the top of the villa, where you will be
able to relax and enjoy a 360° view of the coast and the sea.
To be shared with all the guests of the other apartments is the swimming-pool
