Casa dell'Accademia is a lovely, comfortable apartment right in the middle of Sorrento's historical centre.
Spend a few hours wandering around this part of town and you'll know why so many visitors fall in love with Sorrento. The old town is home to numerous historical buildings including the Basilica of Sant'Antonino and the complex of San Francesco. The quaint narrow streets are full of colourful shops and local restaurants serving fresh, authentic food. All this and more will be on your doorstep when you stay at Casa dell'Accademia.
On the ground floor of an age-old historical building, Casa dell'Accademia comfortably accommodates up to four people.
The living room is charming; with two single sofa beds, a dining table seating four and a flat screen television. There is hot and cold air conditioning, to ensure your comfort whatever the time of year. Casa dell'Accademia also has an internet Wifi connection.
A small flight of four steps leads you to the galley kitchen, with an attractive exposed brickwork arch. You will find everything you need should you choose to cater for yourself during your stay, including four gas rings, an oven, fridge freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster and coffee maker. There is also a washing machine, ironing board and iron.
The double bedroom is unusually spacious, with ample space for a double bed and armchairs. Moving into the bathroom, tastefully decorated with mosaic tiles in natural tones, you will find a shower enclosure, wash basin, toilet, bidet and hairdryer.
A car is not recommended for a stay at Casa dell'Accademia. Public transport links are very good and many attractions are within easy walking distance. Should you need to use a vehicle during your stay, there is nearby public parking, chargeable at 2,50 Euros per hour.
Should you wish to travel beyond the confines of Sorrento, the delights of the region await you. Why not take a day trip to Naples, Ischia, Capri or Procida? Or take the opportunity to explore the stunning Amalfi Coast, visiting Amalfi, Positano or Ravello?
However long you have to spend at Casa dell'Accademia, you will bring home the memory of many wonderful experiences.
Please note, there will be a final cleaning charge of € 35 added to the rental period at time of the booking....Read more
“Excellent trip to Sorrento staying in one of the Feeling Italy t”

I booked two weeks at the Villa academia Historic with Feeling Italy via airbnb. I was very happy with the entire experience: the Feeling Italy team were responsive and helpful with my queries; the apartment was modern (despite being located in the heart of the old town of Sorrento), clean and well-appointed (being able to cook for ourselves meant not overdosing on restaurant meals) and a very good base for exploring both Sorrento itself and the surrounding area. I'd happily book another trip/accommodation with Feeling Italy (through airbnb or directly) and in particular would recommend this particular apartment to friends.

Angela met us at the station (lovely), put us in a taxi, and then met us again at the apartment. she even argued with the taxi driver for over charging! The apartment is in a great location and it does provide everything you need for a short stay. The washing machine worked and the water pressure in the shower was just fine. The air conditioning is a marvel. And the beds are hard, maybe too hard.
I must reiterate what other reviewers have said about the rubbish/recycling instructions: I separate my waste exactly the same way at home so I understood what angela was asking us to do, but for my friend, the instructions weren't clear. We were instructed to put certain bags out on certain days or the neighbors would yell at us but it made no sense to put out the compost bag when it only had 2 tea bags in it. We were onlly there for 3 nights and ended up not putting out any of our meager collection of rubbish.
And there were ants. And they had put down ant traps - the smelly chemical kind. Angela rushed us around the apartment saying that she was allergic to the traps (she was sneezing). I wonder if it occurred to her that one of might have been allergic to them as well?
The apartment does have a 'closed in' feel. The photos make it appear lighter and more open than it actually is.
But, all in all, we had a fine time there.

Cosy ground floor apartment in great central location in Sorrento. Close to restaurants and all you would want to get to in Sorrento. Suitable for a couple. Extra bed also available if needed for extras. The rubbish disposal schedule is really difficult to understand so some written instructions in the apartment would be an excellent addition.
