This lovely property, situated in the suburb of Massalubrense, in Sorrento, stands out for its unique history, location, and internal decor. This Villa dates back to the XVII Century and is located in one of the most panoramic areas of the Campania Region. Long and detailed renovations have ensured that the particular character of this Villa has been maintained. The Villa today is the perfect symbol between past and present, boasting panoramic views of the Island of Capri, Island of Ischia, Island of Procida, Naples, Mount Vesuvius, and Sorrento and is, without a doubt, one of the most enchanting properties in the south of Italy.
The elegant 16th century doorway entrance welcomes guests into an elegant and majestic hall enriched with vases and various pieces of art. On the left hand side is the first living room, fully furnished with white sofas, an antique piano, and a fireplace. The pavement is original, made from typical hand-made ceramics from Sorrento and, as if this were not captivating enough, you will be even further struck by the views of the enchanting Island of Capri, right outside your window. The right hand side of the hall is reserved for property staff who reside on site to provide maximum comfort and service.
The first bedroom, a triple with a double bed and a single, is located through the living room, up to a flight of 5 steps. This bedroom boasts en-suite facilities and a shower, while the bedroom itself enjoys a plasma TV, a window, and a balcony which leading to the outside terrace. The second bathroom is located in the leaving room.
Another flight of 25 stone steps takes you up to the next 4 bedrooms. The first single bedroom is located to the right, followed by 3 double bedrooms. One of these doubles can be used as either a living room (if only 4 bedrooms are needed) or converted to a 5th, double bedroom. This bedroom, however, is located between the single and one of the double bedrooms and can only be accessed by walking through one of these bedrooms. All bedrooms boast Fresco painted ceilings and antique furniture. The kitchen is situated on the first floor and enjoys a wide terrace, equipped with table and chairs made of wrought iron and ceramics.

The Gardens of the villa are some of the most beautiful of the entire region.
