Casale Villarena, Nerano, Sorrento Coast
A fantastic balance between old world rustic charm while having all the modern conveniences that you would expect today.
A splendid centuries-old villa renovated and turned in to an elegant residence with five independent apartments, they are all superbly clean and homely spaces, ideal for a break with friends or family.
The terraced gardens are available for all to enjoy a drink or read a book while the swimming pool among the lemon and olive trees offers plenty of shady areas for relaxation.
The restaurant ''Il Dolce Far Niente'' (The Joy of Doing Nothing) of the Casale Villarena is located on the sea view terrace and offers a typical homely menu with the freshest ingredients from the Casale's own gardens
Guglielmo organises fun cooking classes for anyone who wants to learn the secrets of the Neapolitan cuisine.
The five apartments are not about sophistication, design or chic style, they are spacious, tastefully furnished and equipped with every comfort, all with kitchen and large patio or veranda for Al Fresco dining.
Casale Villarena occupies a superb place surrounded by greenery, in the charming hamlet of Nerano on the very tip of the Sorrento peninsula.
The charming seaside resort of Nerano, in the Marine Reserve of Punta Campanella, offers a pleasant pause from the bustle of Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast.
In an atmosphere full of peace and magic, the landscape offers picture-postcard scenery with stunning views of Capri, the Amalfi coast and the Li Galli archipelago.
The picturesque beach of Marina del Cantone is the end of the road.
From here it's very easy to venture in walks into nearby bays, such as Ieranto or exciting boat trips to the most renowned resorts of Sorrento, Massa Lubrense, Positano and Amalfi.
But Nerano is not only famous for its natural beauty, with a number of excellent restaurants, including two Michelin starred, this is a gourmet mecca with particular emphasis being given to the excellent fish and seafood for which the Amalfi Coast is famous for.
If you travel out of season (March-May or October-November) car hire is useful and will allow you to explore further afield while in summer roads and parking are very busy, better to use public transports.
There is a SITA bus stop just outside Casale Villarena which will take you into Sorrento in about 40 minutes while from Marina del Cantone is possible to arrange boat trips to the coastal towns of the Amalfi Coast and Capri.
Activities on site or nearby include:
Join in a cookery course for all the family and learn how to make fresh pasta dishes or pizza. Courses are suitable for all ages and bookable on a per day basis.
