Silence and beauty are the two main words which describe this farmhouse holiday spot in Sorrento. A true farmhouse where products from the garden are cultivated by local farmers and brought fresh to the table. Those who wish to participate in farm activities like this are more than welcome.
A small hill immersed between sea and land where days go by slowly and noisy city chaos is nowhere to be seen. In this farmhouse, you truly find the hidden side of the Coast, made of strong citrus plant aromas, small paths through the beautiful landscapes which bring you straight to the beach, experiencing it all at a slow and easy farmhouse pace.
The definition of KM zero is using and consuming food from the area of production. Our farmhouse restaurant has always had this philosophy.
The Terranova farmhouse disposes of 11 rooms of which 5 are classic and 6 are superior (from 2 to 4 beds).
he Fattoria Terranova is ideal for a wedding in Sorrento in a farmhouse. Large spaces, a splendid panorama, fine cuisine, experienced in hospitality and organizing events.
It was the late 1400’s when Queen Giovanna d’Angiò presented the Correale family of Terranova with some acres of land in the Sorrento Coast area. The noble family then established themselves in this territory and started hiring local families for domestic services.
Of these families, the Ruoppo’s ancestors were present, they took care of the Villa Correale gardens and surrounding facilities, which has today all become a public museum.
From then on the Ruoppo’s have always been in charge of maintenance of plants and flowers of Villa Correale and also in other Sorrentine areas.
Claudio Ruoppo’s dream was to create a farmland holiday spot that would offer guests the possibility to come in contact with the true essence and nature of the Sorrentine Peninsula, other than the infinite beaches and high society of Sorrento. An essence composed of strong citrus plant scents, Mediterranean landscapes which lead the eye all the way to the sea, and countless olive trees all around.
Twelve years ago this dream became true: Claudio, with the help of his wife Olga Fasulo, managed to achieve his goal of transforming the family rural area into a farmhouse holiday spot, also in addition, a small factory of a local products has been built with stores in the center of Sorrento and a banqueting/ catering company (Terranova Catering Service).
Helping Claudio today in his daily operations are his sons and daughters Luigi, Rossella, Francesca, and Roberto each specialized in different aspects of the family business.
