A beautifully restored monastery with panoramic views of the sea and surrounding islands
This charming summer retreat is situated close to Sorrento, boasting panoramic views reaching out to the islands of Capri, Ischia and Punta Campanella.
Villa Sophia is a fourteenth-century converted monastery with a unique design creating the perfect balance between classical Mediterranean features, antique charm, and modern amenities.
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 the elegant salons, the formal dining area for twelve and the fully equipped kitchen, each of which open onto the terraces and balconies overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
