Villa Azzurra is an an historical villa placed on a cliff that drops steeply down to the sea. It features a swimming pool.
At Villa Azzurra there are four apartments.
The villa is located in the most ancient and elegant area of Sorrento, in
the heart of the historical and tourist center.
The villa itself is an historical monument of Sorrento. It is an important
piece of the landscape of Sorrento, for its elegance and beauty, and for its
exceptional position on the volcanic cliff, centrally located between the
tourist port and the beaches. It is not by chance that you will find the villa
pictured in thousands of postcards.
While staying at Villa Azzurra, you will be living in a romantic piece
of Sorrento's history.
The construction of the villa took place during the nineteenth century, a
period during which rich intellectual travelers, composers and poets, traveled
from the north of Europe to the south of Italy, discovering the beauty and
enchantment of over two thousand years of history. As it happened, a rich German
baron, Von Gunderrode, after having traveled around the whole world, chose this
place as his residence.
He had several good reasons for choosing this spot, and it is for these same
reasons that modern-day travelers are spellbound by this amazing villa. From the
large and splendid terrace, placed directly above the sea, you will be able to
admire the incomparable scenery of Sorrento and the tall cliffs that dive into
the sea. A bit further in the distance, your sight will rest on the large arc of
the Gulf of Naples, with the characteristic cone of Mount Vesuvius right in the
middle of it. Closer by, you will be able to see other elegant historical
mansions, which now are luxury hotels.
If you lean from the balustrade of the terrace, you will see the green-azure
sea of Sorrento right below you, with its long, thin strips of beaches, colored
by lounges and umbrellas. And there are many more things to delight your senses...
the mild climate, the perfume of oranges and lemons.
The villa stands on top of ancient Roman walls, and it is a masterpiece of
elegance and gracefulness, from an architectural point of view. On every level
there are large terraces and tall windows, built to maximize your enjoyment of
the sun, the sky and the sea of this fortunate land.
On the ground floor, there is a large terrace of 500 square meters (5400
square feet), tastefully paved in white and blue, surrounded by a nice
balustrade, and with a small swimming pool in the middle of it. On the terrace
and by the pool you will find deck chairs as well as garden furniture.
As a guest of the villa, you will be able to access the large terrace. The
terrace and the swimming pool are shared by the guests of the four apartments.
From the villa, walking along a pathway, you will be able to reach the sea
and the beach facilities. The cleaning is performed every two days, and linen
and towels are changed twice a week. Daily cleaning and room service, as well as
a barbecue and a wood-fired brick oven, are available on request.
Villa Azzurra is just a few steps from the harbor of Sorrento, which
can be reached along a pedestrian-only pathway. From the harbor you will be able
to board the ferries and the hydrofoils that go to Capri, Ischia, Positano,
Amalfi and Naples. The Circumvesuviana train station, which connects Sorrento to
Pompeii and to the train station in Naples, is also a short walk from the villa,
and so is the bus stop.
From Villa Azzurra you can walk to the most ancient and charming spots
of Sorrento, such as the Cathedral and the Cloister of Saint Francis, the
gardens, which extend themselves, terrace after terrace, towards the sea and the
magnificent view of the Gulf of Naples, Procida and Mt. Vesuvius. Also, you will
