Accessed by a long driveway, lined with palm trees, Villa Sophia is reminiscent of a celebrity dwelling in the Miami hills. Its white exterior and striking Art Nouveau design creates a fabulously exclusive and luxurious first impression. The building itself dates back to the 18th Century when it was a privately owned by the Nobility. In 2010, the villa was completely renovated and decorated in white and shades of green, creating a contemporary yet elegant feel. Read More

Inside the villa offers living accommodation over four floor levels. The ground floor is home to the main sitting room and kitchen-diner over looking the impressive gardens. Seven spacious and stylish bedrooms each have their own ensuite bathroom and balcony or picture window to admire the views of Mount Vesuvius in the distance as well as satellite TV (one DVD player can be provided on request). Outside, in a separate annex, there are two further double bedrooms meaning the villa can accommodate a party as large as 18 people. Despite its central location the grounds of the villa are extensive and certainly large enough to accommodate such a large group. There are several patio areas to enjoy, in addition to a swimming pool terrace complete with hot tub and also an impressive barbecue and covered dining area.

From Villa Sophia it is just a 10 minute walk to the small village centre of Sant Agnello where you will find a pretty church, grocery shop and several pavement cafes and bars. Less than 100m in the other direction, you will find La Marinella where there are a selection of good local restaurants boasting fantastic views over the bay of Naples and the Sorrento coastline. Below is the La Marinella Beach Club, known to be a favourite spot of Sophia Loren, where a small strip of volcanic sand is a stark contrast to the shimmering waves in front and the dramatic cliff faces behind. Thankfully the beach can be accessed by a lift from the main street above but if you are feeling energetic it is possible to walk down!

To visit the city of Sorrento is on many peoples bucket lists, and staying in Villa Sophia means you can access the town easily by bus, train, taxi or even on foot (approximately a 25 minute walk). Sit in the Tasso square of an evening and watch the world go by with a glass of something cold or take an organised trip from here to Capri, Positano or Pompeii.
