This former royal residence sits high on a clifftop with spellbinding views of the Neapolitan Riviera.
Formerly the summer residence of a Piemonte nobleman, this splendid 19th-Century villa is now an elegant hotel boasting a dramatic setting. Perched on a clifftop, the views over the coastline and Bay of Naples are simply breathtaking. Sorrento is just a ten minute walk away, making this gem of a hotel a great base for exploring the local area. Soothe aching muscles in the outdoor pool with hydro-massage or relax under the shade of palm trees on the sun terrace. For a change of scenery, take the internal lift down to the private beach (May–Oct).
Restaurant Le Muse, which also houses the Vesuvio Terrace, has delightful views over the Bay of Naples, which are best enjoyed at sunset. When it's time to indulge in a refreshing cocktail or two you have a choice of three bars with different settings – overlooking the gardens, at the bottom of the cliff facing the sea or on the poolside terrace overlooking the sea.
All of the rooms are classically furnished. Double Balcony Garden View Rooms overlook the gardens, but if you long for a glimpse of the sparkling sea then it's worth upgrading to a Double Balcony Partial Sea View Room or a spacious Suite Balcony Sea View.
Overlooking the Bay of Naples, 10 minutes from the Piazza Tasso which is lined with bars and cafés
