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.
Its ideal location nearby Vico Equense and Sorrento makes it a perfect base for visits of the archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum, Naples, Positano and the island of Capri. The creeks of Marina di Seiano are just 6km away from the Agriturismo.
A traditional dinner made with special Campania recipes is served every evening in the splendid maiolica tiled kitchen. Excellent local wines such as Aglianico has been selected by the owners. The majority of the products used in the kitchen come either from the orchard or from the Agriturismo's production. The extra virgin olive oil produced by the Agriturismo has gained the AOP mark in 2005. For breakfast, you can choose from a wide selection of homemade cakes and tarts, fresh local cheese such as ricotta or mozzarella, fruits from the orchards and homemade jams.
