Torchiara is a beautiful spacious apartment on the top floor of a lovely house surrounded by gardens in a stunning elevated position between the famous town of Sorrento and the beautiful Amalfi coast. There are beautiful sea views all around especially enjoyed from the apartments large terrace and the location is perfect for exploring the many sights in the area.
Torchiara is a bright and luminous apartment on two floors, very comfortably furnished in Mediterranean style and well equipped with modern comforts. Its large living room has patio doors on two sides opening onto a gorge...ous large terrace which is furnished with table and chairs is the perfect spot for dining al fresco whilst enjoying the magnificent panorama of the azure sea below.
The living room is open plan and has a fully equipped kitchen area, dining table and chairs, fireplace and sitting area with settees and flat screen satellite television. A corridor leads to three comfortable bedrooms, one with double bed and en suite shower room, one with single bed and characteristic porthole window (an extra pull out single bed can be made available on request), a further double bedroom, and a separate shower room. Stairs lead to an upper attic floor with typical sloping ceiling where there is another single bedroom (an extra single bed may be added here on request), a bathroom and a small terrace.
Torchiara also has its own little private area in the grounds where a jacuzzi tub has been added and guests can also relax in the mature communal gardens surrounding the house where there is also a wood burning pizza oven and parking is available. Built cleverly into the hillside overlooking the sea, Torchiara is in a perfect position just a short distance from the little village of SantAgata and only 7 kilometres away from the famous town of Sorrento which is a joy to explore with its cosmopolitan atmosphere, delightful maze of shops, cafes and restaurants.
From Sorrento boat trips along the coast are normally available and there are ferry services to the beautiful islands of Ischia and Capri, as well as Naples itself. Mount Vesuvius or the ruins at Pompeii are also well worth a visit and easily reached by car.
The cuisine in this area is superb, what better to lazily shop for the local produce and excellent fresh fish, to then dine alfresco on your own terrace overlooking the sea, or try out one of the selection of local restaurants or even a delicious neopolitan pizza.

We extended our stay because we loved it so much! The home was very well equipped and clean! The view was spectacular and location to Positano, Amalfi, etc. was very convenient. We would stay there again.
As for the apartment in Tuscany, by the town of San Gimigiano, we found it mediocre at best. Location was okay but amenities and kitchen equipment was lacking. Outside sitting area was in a gravel parking lot! We would not recommend this location.
Our entire experience through LaBellaToscana was fantastic! Staff was very helpful! Thank you!
