On the top floor of an old building located in the old centre of Naples, the view looks over rooftops and domes and looks east to Vesuvius and to the west to Castel Sant'Elmo and the Certosa di San Martino, which sit on a hill.
This recently renovated apartment is full of charm and pervaded by a Mediterranean and eclectic feeling.
On the breath taking terrace, majolica tables sit under a straw canopy; terracotta jars, planters, small vases and Sicilian ceramics bring Mediterranean essences together, along with aromatic jasmine and ancient roses. In the background there is the murmur of a small enchanting majolica fountain which evokes relaxation before and after a dip in the populous life of Naples below.
The four guest rooms are, air, water, fire and earth; the four elements, which are very strongly present in Naples. On the walls, paintings, prints and photos all exhibit images of Naples and its surroundings. The elements are present in the journey in the pursuit of the fire that hatches under Vesuvius, in the water that glitters in the gulf, above and below the swarming earth of traffic, with eyes to the sky in a city that is also a symbol, an atmosphere, an idea.
Located in the Borgo dei Vergini, also known as the Baroque village due to the predominant style of its architecture, it’s a district in which many recognize the most authentic and real side of Naples, rich in cultural and artistic attractions, and from which you can reach San Gregorio Armenio and the Nativity Streets, Napoli Sotterranea, the Naples Cathedral, San Lorenzo Maggiore, San Domenico Maggiore, Santa Chiara, Cappella Sansevero, Spaccanapoli, MADRE the Museum of contemporary art and the National Archaeological Museum. The house is also close to the METRO lines 1 and 2 which then go all over the city.
You will find milk, tea, barley, cocoa, fruit juice, biscuits, rusks, loaves of bread, Nutella, eggs, butter, yogurt, cereals, fruit, sweets and Neapolitan coffee that can be prepared in a traditional coffee maker. Homemade fruit jams give a touch of authenticity as well as other local products. Items are always available at the buffet and not served, so you have no restrictions on your time and it gives you the pleasure of enjoying a cup of tea, a coffee or a fruit juice in the afternoon, or a herbal tea in the evening.
