If you’re a fan of contemporary design and modern style, you will love the timeless appeal of Sirenide, a quaint three-story semi-attached villa set on the hills of Sorrento, only a 15 minute drive to town or a pleasant 20 minute walk on a car-free pathway.
The villa resides adjacent to its owners’ and we cannot help but be intrigued by the very cool, functional and comfortable interiors and welcoming efforts: a private courtyard for eating al fresco, a roof terrace offering breathtaking views of the bay of Naples, and its swimming pool set in Sirenide’s own citrus grove: a unique and unexpected perk which sets Sirenide apart.

Wonderful and very spacious! An older unique home, fully restored. Shared wall but very private. Pool is shared with the owner home, however we had it to ourselves. Stunning views! Casual pub and a restaurant within easy walking distance. We hiked into Sorrento a few times. 30 to 40 minutes. We hired a driver for some day tours through the concierge. The local contact Rita was also very helpful. Amazing experience!

The Villa is nothing short of a breathtaking villa along the Sorrento mountainside. Our family enjoyed our stay in this elegant space, which was modern, yet full of old world charm. We hope to return.

The strategic location of Sorrento allows you to visit a plethora of interesting sites with short haul and frequent connections. Naples, with its magnificent museums and marvelous churches, the ruins of the great Pompeii and Herculaneum (you will be amazed at how fascinated you may become if you visit the ruins with a good passionate guide – ask our concierge for assistance in booking one of them), Mount Vesuvius and the glitzy Capri, in addition of course to Positano, Amalfi and Ravello, the gems of the Amalfi Coast. All these must-see destinations are a short ride away.
And keep in mind: this area has the highest concentration of excellent restaurants in all of Italy. Are you hungry yet?
