Perched on the cliffs of the Sorrentine Peninsula, overlooking the distinctive bays of Marina Grande and Marina Piccola, Villa Astor is an astonishing private residence boasting one of the ten most beautiful gardens in Italy.
The villa includes 6 premium bedrooms and comprises a main three-floor building with a separate lounge connected to the main building by an external staircase off the main terrace.
Spectacular views may be enjoyed from the ample windows, or while dining on the large terrace facing Mount Vesuvius and overlooking the crystal-clear sea.
Inside, the layout benefits from high ceilings, six luxury bedrooms, designed by Jacques Garcia, each with en-suite bathroom. The expansive kitchen is well equipped and ideal for cooking anything from simple snacks to exquisite dinners.
In addition to the rich historical background, the property is graced with an amazing, internal pool in a natural grotto (known as the Bagno dei Frati) with direct access to the sea. A private swimming pool in the idyllic garden setting complements the villa.
Last but not least, the location combines beautiful scenery with practical appeal. Although nestled in the heart of a tranquil neighbourhood, accessed by the typical, narrow roads of the old town, it is just a five-minute walk to the lively town centre where one can fully enjoy the charming atmosphere of local daily life.
For the more adventurous, the Sorrentine peninsula has become the hub for a variety of destinations on the Amalfi coast. Within reachable distance by car or by boat are Naples, Pompeii, Positano, Ravello and Amalfi, as well as the islands of Capri, Procida and Ischia.
