Charming bed and breakfast Vico Equense - Sorrento - Ref: ANA
Located on the heights of the Sorrento peninsula and surrounded by a 13 hectares park of olive groves and fruit trees, this beautiful historic house welcomes guests in an enchanting setting and a convivial atmosphere.
The mansion has gone through various vicissitudes in its life: initially a Benedictine monastery, then a Royal residence, afterwards used by Joachim Murat as a hideout to finally become in 1822 the summer residence of Duke Luigi Giusso. The villa still belongs to the Giusso family.
This magnificent house has a well-preserved historical character. It offers huge rooms where antique furniture, "Maiolica" (Italian glazed pottery from the Renaissance), original floor tiles, antiques and family souvenirs have been perfectly kept. The owners will welcome you warmly in their beautiful bed and breakfast and will be pleased to organize a guided tour of their house and show you the small museum dedicated to the history of their family.
Guests have the choice to stay in the vast rooms of the main house, the dependence or the villa.
You will be seduced by the historical character of the mansion and its family atmosphere, the refined decoration, the beautiful outside spaces and the panoramic terrace offering stunning views over the Gulf of Naples, Mount Vesuvius and the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida. One can enjoy the peacefulness of the park, relax by the pool overlooking the Gulf of Naples or take a walk to explore the vast domain of the agriturismo.
