CASA IRENE - SORRENTO
Casa Irene is a modern two bedrooms apartment located in the upper part of Sorrento, within walking distance (approximately 20 minutes) to the lively centre of the town, where guests can enjoy an abundance of restaurants and open air bars. The atmosphere is friendly and lively, without the unpleasantness of some resorts in other Mediterranean countries. The main street has all the famous designer labels and the late opening schedule, so that you will always have time for shopping. All ages can enjoy late evening entertainment in a safe environment. During the day there is the choice to spend a leisurely day on the beach, have a boat excursion to Capri only 30 minutes away, visit Pompei or even Naples.
Casa Irene boasts amazing views of the Gulf of Naples and Sorrento and a spacious terrace that extends around the main house, with various shaded areas. From the parking area, Aprox 15 steps will take you to the large terrace which is furnished with a table and chairs, barbeque and a pizza oven, ideal for 'alfresco' meals or simply to relax while enjoying the wonderful panorama. There is also a soft seating area with a sofa, table and a pool table. Here you will also find the swimming pool with sun beds, umbrellas and an external toilet with shower.
From the terrace you enter a spacious and modern kitchen equipped with fridge/freezer, oven, microwave, toaster and kettle. Further on the other side you will find the living room with sofas, a fireplace and dining area, with direct access to the outdoor area. There are two bedrooms, one double and one twin, both with Satellite TV and French doors to the outside. An extra foldable bed can be added either to the twin bedroom (in this case the space surrounding the beds is reduced) or to the living room. There is one bathroom with shower. The apartment is fully air-conditioned (except for the kitchen) and it has WIFI internet.
From one side of the terrace, there is access via a path leading further up the hill to two small apartments:
1) a studio occupied by a long let tenant (at work most of the time) who has no use of any of the outdoor areas and swimming pool.
2) a one bedroom apartment which can be rented together with the two bedroom, in which case the use of the swimming pool will be private or if rented by two separated groups the pool will be shared, but the one bedroom apartment will have its own private outdoor furnished space and will not use the terrace outside the two bedroom apartment, but only the pool.
The property is about 5 minutes drive away from the centre of Sorrento or 20 minutes walking via a shortcut, with an access road leading to the property which is on an incline, therefore a small car (Opel Corsa size, or similar) is recommended.
Facilities: shared swimming pool, Satellite TV, WIFI internet, air condition (except for the kitchen), external shower.

"We spent a week in this gorgeous villa/apartment - Casa Irene. It was so
peaceful being slightly up in the hills away from the town and so benefitted,
not only from the most fantastic views but from a lovely breeze too which was
very welcome. The apartment was very comfortable with everything needed to make
a relaxing home from home holiday. There was masses of outdoor space both at the
pool side and private space accesssed from the apartment. We were able to walk
into Sorrento in 15 minutes and to a very good supermarket in 10 minutes. The
walk back is all uphill but only takes 20 minutes from town and we could always
cool off in the pool and enjoy the view! The roads along the Amalfii coast and
in and around Sorrento are narrow with tight corners and lots of scooters so if
hiring a car, we would recommend as small a car as you can get away with. We
loved our week and here and would not hesitate to recommend Casa Irene."
" Hello, we had a good holiday at Casa Irene, the photos on the website actually do not do it justice! The property is larger than we expected and the terrace, pool area and furniture really are lovely with, of course, the most amazing view. The owner who lives underneath the property was very friendly (please can you say hello to her from us) and her and her son were very happy to help with anything (e.g. we couldn't get the lights to work on the terrace and they immediately called for an electrician). The bathroom needs updating but nevertheless we were very happy in the property and would revisit!
The smaller property which my Dad rented for a week was really lovely, again with amazing views. Again, it was a larger property than we expected and nicely fitted out. The steps to the property were very steep and I think a handrail is needed to the top for health and safety reasons.
I think it would be very useful to explain that a small car is necessary if you are going to stay in the property, unless extremely steep walks back home at the end of a lovely evening in Sorrento are part of the enjoyment of your holiday!
My sentence - "Holiday bliss - watching the sun set over the Bay of Naples, toes in the pool, gin and tonic in the hand"."
