This villa is one of the most prestigious historical places to stay in the area: in a setting befitting of a king, it combines elegance and class with peace and harmony. With these characteristics, it is a fantastic setting for luxury vacations and memorable occasions, because of its natural situation on the extreme tip of the peninsula and also its emotionally inspiring environment.
The location is unique: Villa Sorrento is located at the Capo di Sorrento near Massa Lubrense.

The rooms have large windows or balconies with sea views and are characterized by the wealth of furniture and vintage items and painted ceilings.

Left on 01/12/2013 for a stay in December 2012 | DawnReviewed Jan 12, 2013Stayed Dec 2012
My husband - myself our 2 year old daughter and nanny rented this home over the New Year holiday. We had an incredible stay and were able to meet some of the most wonderful people. The service that we received was hands down the best that we have ever had while staying in someone's home. The pictures of the location do not do them justice. This home is perfect for a wedding - family celebration or just for some R&R.; Quiet and remote this home offered us just what we needed to reconnect as a family.
Feel free to contact me should you need more information!
