An historical villa of great emotional impact, overlooking Capri, ideal for luxury vacations, events, celebrations and exclusive weddings. Situated on the furthermost point of the Sorrento peninsula, at walking distance from the village of Massa Lubrense, the villa is set in one of the most beautiful natural landscapes of the Sorrento coast: from every window and balcony, from every terrace and from the solarium, one’s eyes fall upon Capri, Ischia, Marina della Lobra and Vesuvius, which, it seems, one can touch with an outstretched hand. The villa is highly refined, with the atmosphere and appointments of the 17th century, but with all modern comforts and services. The bedrooms have a discreet and original charm, they are stylishly decorated for an old-world atmosphere, and have a marvelous view over Capri. The bathrooms, which are also in the same style, are outside the bedrooms except in the ground floor suite, to respect the villa's historical architectural plans. Particularly noteworthy is the «Murat suite», where the King of Naples, Joachim Murat, stayed in 1808 during the French fighting to recapture Capri, and which today still has the original decoration, frescoes and terracotta flooring. The villa is not only situated in an exceptional strategic position, between Sorrento, Capri and Positano, it is set in a splendid coast of some twenty-one kilometers. From here it is possible to reach many tourist resorts, including the nearby Sorrento, the archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum, Naples and Vesuvius, Capri and Ischia or the pearls of Amalfi Coast such as Positano, Amalfi and Ravello.
