A beautifully-restored monastery with panoramic sea views.
Villa Sophia is a 14th-century converted monastery with a unique design, creating the perfect balance between classical Mediterranean features, antique charm, and modern amenities. This charming summer retreat is situated close to Sorrento, boasting panoramic views reaching out to the islands of Capri, Ischia and Punta Campanella.
The outdoor areas are ideally designed for spending early mornings on the terrace, sunbathing nearby on the sun loungers or dining al-fresco. The pool area has beautiful night lighting, which creates a magical atmosphere. What is more, guests can pick their own fresh produce from the vegetable garden and fruit trees.
The interior is exquisitely decorated, featuring antique fine silk textiles, bathroom tiles from Vietri Sul Mare, and classic terracotta tiles in the living areas.
The common living areas include elegant salons, a formal dining area, and a fully-equipped kitchen, all of which open onto the terraces and balconies overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
Accommodating up to 12 guests, there are six elegantly-furnished double bedrooms. There are two double bedrooms on the first floor – one of which has a private living room with a single sofa bed, and three on the second floor. In addition, there is a separate annex apartment featuring an en-suite double bedroom and a living room. For smaller groups, the property can be rented with just three or four bedrooms.
Villa Sophia ticks all the boxes for a relaxed family holiday exploring Sorrento and the charming surrounding towns.
NB: Due to the villa’s location, Wi-Fi and phone coverage may be intermittent. The road leading to the villa is narrow and is suitable for very small cars of max. 170 cm width.
