The Bellevue Syrene, one of Sorrento's well-known luxury hotels, is located in a place of timeless beauty.
Ancient fish shops and Nymphea prove the presence of the Romans - From Augustus to Tiberius and Virgil - and legend goes that this place, set between rocks and sea, was so beautiful that the Mermaids chose it as their home. Born as a patrician residence, then became a villa, the five star Bellevue Hotel of Sorrento is open all year and offers a modern hospitality which has its roots in a tradition that seduced intellectuals, artists and heads of State.
In 1750 the Mastrobuono counts built a house there, which in 1820 becomes a delightful hotel. Kings such as Lugwig II of Bavaria, Victor Emmanuel III, Paul of Greece, Empresses such as Eujénie de Montijo, to whom is dedicated one of the villa's most beautiful frescos, writers such as Turgenev, Jorge, Marguerite Yourcenar, all of which, no exceptions, remained fascinated and stunned once they arrived in this place.
Bellevue Syrene rose up on the splendid remains of a majestic villa... A home destined to the otium of the highest Roman aristocracy, among them Emperor Augustus himself. The centuries have worn out the walls which hosted important personalities, politicians, intellectuals, but that cliff on the sea, which legend tells is inhabited by mermaids, continues to charm.
The solarium pool overlooking the sea is a total relaxing area which you can enjoy anytime of the day. It is perfect for enjoying the sun of Sorrento and bathing to cool off during the hottest hours. In the afternoon and evening it is the location for a special aperitif.
