Laqua Charme & Boutique: the story of the Collection begins here

Many are unaware but the captivating journey of Laqua by the Sea traces its roots back to the inception of Laqua Charme & Boutique in 2012.With its innate focus on personal well-being and the enchanting allure of sea-facing terraces, this initial incarnation laid the foundation for a cherished coastal retreat. Laqua by the Sea has undergone a subtle evolution..

Like a timeless jewel nestled within the rugged cliffs of the Sorrento peninsula, it has been lovingly polished by the gentle caress of the wind and the pristine waters of the Gulf.

The design of its rooms, furnishings, and colours have evolved to embrace contemporary sensibilities while retaining the essence of coastal romance. Its commitment to guest well-being extends beyond aesthetics. The wellness area offers indulgent services and a rich programme of experiences carefully crafted to elevate every stay.

The power of Feng Shui

At the heart of the inaugural Cannavacciuolo-designed structure in Campania lies a profound connection to the ancient art of Chinese Feng-Shui.This centuries-old practice, rooted in the delicate interplay between wind and water, finds its perfect embodiment in the breathtaking landscapes of this enchanting corner of Italy. Every facet of Laqua Charme & Boutique reflects the meticulous application of Feng-Shui principles, guiding the creation of spaces that exude harmony and radiate positive energy.

. From the strategic placement of lights to the meticulous furniture arrangement, each detail has been thoughtfully curated to cultivate an atmosphere of serenity and balance.

This project was the brainchild of Cinzia Primatesta, who has always been fond of oriental philosophies and enthusiastic about bringing her beliefs of wellness and expertise to the Cannavacciuolo Group properties.

Laqua by the Sea: the launch of a collection

In 2021, Cinzia and Antonino Cannavacciuolo embarked on a journey to share their unique vision of hospitality across Italy, creating a new collection of destinations.

Inspired by their profound connection to water, they infused this essence into the very fabric of their establishments. From the serene shores of Lake Orta in Piedmont to the rolling hills of Ticciano in Campania, Laqua by the Lake and Laqua Countryside emerged.

The idea of creating a collection entailed a name change: Laqua by the Sea officially became part of the Laqua Collection, to be joined by Laqua Vineyard in Tuscany a year later.
