Home “Marina Grande” is a charming apartment located in Marina Grande (Sorrento) along the seafront of the beach. This home is situated in a quiet area, in a typical ancient fishermen's Village, but at the same time close to the centre of Sorrento. Home “Marina Grande” is in an ancient building facing the ocean - which is less than 20 m away- but it has been just renewed and it is equipped with air-conditioning. On the west-side of Marina Grande (on the left when facing the ocean), one can find a nice small sandy beach where umbrellas, deckchairs and a bar are available and where kids can safely swim. Home “Marina Grande” is near a series of shops: a supermarket, a greengrocer’s, a confectioner’s, a butcher’s, some restaurants, etc. On reaching the “Marina Grande” Home by car, 500 away from of the apartment there are car parking spaces.
To reach the “Marina Grande” Home, one has to walk along an ancient narrow street, typical in our area during the XVIII and XIX centuries, and then pass through an ancient Greek Gate to reach Marina Grande where “Marina Grande” Home is located.
Otherwise, one can reach the apartment by following the carriage road which takes to Marina Grande.
Sorrento town lies on layers of solidified volcanic ashes, 50 meters above the sea-level and there aren’t many beaches. That is the reason why there are so many wooden bathing piers here. If Your are looking for a rocky beach, You can go to Tonnarella beach (300 meters away from "Marina Grande” Home). A curiosity: on renting the "Marina Grande" Home, consider also that, every year, on the 26th July an ancient fair dedicated to Sant’Anna - the patron saint of the Beach - is organised. We suggest, also to stroll in the evening along the Marina Grande centre to enjoy that ancient, romantic atmosphere of this fishermen’s village from where one can admire the beautiful gulf of Naples with its symbol Vesuvius. And in the evening, for one of the best pizzas in the area, "Zi’ Ntonio a Mare" Restaurant (200 m. from the house). In addition, if You like eating fish without spending a fortune, “Emilia Restaurant” with its typical check pattern tablecloth.
“Marina Grande” Home lies on the third floor of an ancient building (without lift). It is three-roomed lodging of 75 m 2, sleeps 4+2, composed of: wide living-room with sofa-bed (Satellite TV) dining-table, kitchen with breakfast counter (fridge, oven, washing-machine), a double room with sea-view, a bathroom with shower, another double room, another bathroom with shower, a terrace lighted and equipped with table and chairs from where You can enjoy a stunning 180 °sea-view with Naples, Pozzuoli and Vesuvius.
But the magic moment, in that apartment, is certainly the sunset: when the sky becomes redder and redder and the sea in front of the flat becomes darker and darker.
"Marina Grande" Home is a great place for those who love enjoying nature, sun and for those willing to immerse themselves into a typical Italian archaic world.
