Raise your head , indeed Aiza ' a Capa . The inscription on the sign in Neapolitan dialect of ceramics at the entrance of our house does not have to sound like a peremptory order , but as a gentle suggestion. The guest is invited , in fact, to turn their eyes towards the park , natural pearl small , but cozy company situated in the locality Villazzano of Sorrento, on the tip of the Sorrento Peninsula .
From here, according to tradition, the past is Ulysses, who founded the temple of Athena. And it is perhaps because influenced by these Homeric reminiscences that tourists from the chaos of the big city can seem almost hear in the distance the sweet siren song , when the terrace, equipped with sun plunges into the gulf of Naples to reach Ischia and Capri. Located on via'e mieze , the middle way , along the Sorrento - Sorrento, covered until the nineteenth century by visitors in search of feelings , the Garden today, thanks to the exclusivity of the place and the atmosphere especially , gives emotions equal to those of a time. After having crossed the strait and along the avenue under the perfumed lemon pergola , guests are warmly welcomed by Joseph Nunziata ( Peppino to his friends) who , with his wife Ida and sons Louis and Valentina , is dedicated to the meticulous care of the garden and the garden, to the cultivation of lemons and the preparation of typical dishes of Mediterranean cuisine. Most of the genuine dishes that make up the menu are cooked in a wood oven , just like in the past. And as in the past Ida and her children make the dough by hand and , once a week , preparing the delicious bread , crafted by hand and baked in a wood oven .
The Garden of Vigliano is a peasant house , the walls of which oozes a feeling of harmony and serenity during the day , in fact , it is not difficult to see Peppino , a true master in the art of terracotta nativity scene and tuff , and is intent on shaping shepherds , things seem plausible to people in the flesh . There are few guest rooms ( located inside the large building that once functioned as a watchtower ), but this is an advantage because you can get more in relationship with the family and the surrounding environment. The Garden is not far from town known throughout the world for their beauty as Positano, Amalfi and Sorrento , definitely worth a visit . Even within the coast you can make interesting excursions : in fact , not far from Vigliano , is Villa Rossi with the church dedicated to Our Lady of Charity painted by Guido Reni, who lived between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries , and also known to be the place where the English Admiral Hudson Lowe, after the battle of Capri , surrendered to Joachim Murat , King of Naples from 1808 to 1815 .
