Location & Area
Sorrento is one of the best known resorts in Italy, situated on a track of coastline of unrivalled beauty. This sheltered spot surrounded by luxuriant hills, where vines, olives and above all high quality citrus fruits are grown, was once the site of choice where the wealthy Romans used to build their villas, and it has been a highly prestigious retreat since 700.
The origin of the name Sorrento - Surrentum is poetically dated back to the sirens, who legend has it, lived on the rocks of the Gulf from where they tried invain to ensnare Ulysses with their deadly song. The City's origin is very old Sorrento was probably founded by Greek settlers and then subjected to the dominium of the Sunnites. In the third Century BC the Romans occupied it. During the Middle Ages it was dominated by various powers and in 1558 it underwent the cruellest attack by the Saracens who sacked it. Following this episode a Wall and defence and watchtowers, placed on neighbouring spurs surrounded the City. In 1554 the poet Torquato Tasso, Sorrento's most famous son was born.
In the old part of Sorrento, the Greek-Roman structure of the Town can still be detected with the parallel streets intersecting at right angles.
Today at the heart of the City stands Tasso Square, where besides the monument of the famous poet, is the statue of Saint Antonino, patron saint of Sorrento. The Corso Italia begins from this square a lively elegant street with wealth of shops, bars and meeting places, etc...

Holiday July 2011
Particular Notes :
Do not miss the opportunity to stay at this unique villa in wonderful Sorrento. We stayed for 14 nights with our 2 daughters and their partners and have been holidaying in Sorrento for the past 10 years. This villa packs a lot of features in and is not clinical and impersonal as so many other properties are in the area. One of the many plus points of Villa Marcella is that each of the 5 bedrooms is of comparable standard so there is no problem about one couple feeling they have got a raw deal in having a child's or box room. Very, very few villas of 5 bedrooms offer this facility.
You can be confident that you will have a lovely relaxing holiday with great indoor and outdoor space, a secure environment, walking distance to the local shops and beach - an easy 10 to 15 mins. We would book again without hesitation.
