Towering above the Gulf of Naples, Villa Astor is a unique private residence built on the ruins of a Roman villa dating back to the first century AD. Set on the cliffs of the Sorrentine Peninsula, the villa offers breathtaking views of the bays of Marina Grande and Marina Piccola and has one of the top 10 most beautiful gardens in Italy.

Acquired by U.S Ambassador to Italy, William Waldorf Astor, at the beginning of the 20th century, the villa has been fully renovated by French architect and interior designer Jacques Garcia whose use of marble columns, Greek and Roman statues and many other archeological pieces of significant importance give the property a truly unique feel – much like stepping into a museum.

The elegant main entrance hall on the ground floor leads into two beautifully furnished sitting rooms and a library, all with marble floors and feature fireplaces over which ornate gilt edged mirrors hang. Downstairs there is a sitting room, elegant dining room and a large country-style kitchen with traditional black and white tiling. There is also a music room with a grand piano and a large terrace facing the sea – a perfect place for cocktails or al fresco dining. A basement with comfortable seating set in front of huge arched windows offers a beautiful view of the sea and Mount Vesuvius.

On the first floor are two sumptuous master bedrooms with walk-in dressing rooms and en-suite bathrooms and there are four double bedrooms on the second floor. Each room is individually and decadently designed and has integrated audio/visual systems.

With its 180 degree sea views and stunning natural scenery, it is easy to see why the 20,000m2 garden is considered one of the most beautiful gardens in Italy. From here, guests have direct access to the sea through an amazing internal pool in a natural grotto. A roof-top terrace offers uninterrupted views of Sorrento and the Gulf of Naples.

There is a wellness suite in the basement with a gym equipped with the latest Precor equipment, a massage room and shower.

Villa Astor has an elevator serving all floors and secure parking for three cars.

Guests can enjoy many activities in the local area from cooking lessons to hiking and visits to historical sites such as Pompeii and Herculanum.
