The living space
The property itself comprises a substantial main villa over three floors and cellar, and a separate annex in the gardens, next to a yoga studio. Renovated throughout, the villa retains the atmosphere of the past, with wooden-beamed ceilings, tall shuttered windows, antique fireplaces and fine furnishings, carefully selected to complement each room. Air conditioning is available in the annex, but is not required in the main villa, where the ancient walls keep the air cool throughout the year. Three living rooms give you a choice where to sit and relax; each is individually decorated and offers a different view of the villa’s sumptuous gardens. You will also find a splendid ‘cigar room’ with a double sofa bed, a mobile bar, well stocked with a selection of rums and liqueurs. The two sitting rooms on the first floor have comfortable sofas, satellite TV and panoramic views of the hillsides sweeping down to the blue sea beyond. There is a small kitchen downstairs which is charmingly equipped with an authentic bread oven – perfect for making pizzas. From the kitchen, stairs lead down to a small cellar, where wines and liqueurs are stored. The kitchen on the second floor is very well equipped with oven, hob, fridge-freezer and the smaller appliances you would expect. Outside on a balcony is the washing machine. The downstairs dining room has access to a seating area outside, with tables, chairs and umbrellas. Just one of many charming places to eat al fresco within the extensive gardens.
The bedrooms and bathrooms
Of the eight bedrooms, two are downstairs in the main building; one double and one single, along with one bathroom. On the first floor are three double bedrooms – two of them en suite – and a further bathroom. On the second floor is the beautiful master bedroom with en suite shower room. With exposed wood beams and breathtaking views on two sides, this is a truly special place to wake up in the morning. From the terrace on the second floor, you can breathe in the timeless view of the Bay of Naples, dotted with the islands of Capri, Procida and Ischia. It is hard to conceive of a better place to enjoy an aperitif at sunset! Each comfortable bedroom is unique, but all have white walls, dark furniture and charming, clever details. The bathrooms are gorgeously done out with spa-style modern fittings. All have bidets, some have spacious showers, some double sinks and some have a bath.
From the garden, you can explore the enchanting annex, accessed via the olive grove. On the ground floor, there is a double bedroom and bathroom with a shower, wash basin, bidet and toilet. Moving upstairs, there is a double bedroom with wonderful views and an en suite shower room. The annex is air conditioned throughout. Next door is the yoga studio; with high ceilings, wooden floors and bathed in light, this indulgent space is perfect for yoga, Pilates or meditation. There is an attached cloakroom toilet for convenience. Please note that there is also a further separate building, with a private entrance. This is used on occasion by the owners when they are tending to the gardens.
The Mediterranean garden is simply beautiful, encircling and protecting the house as it has done for centuries. Each season offers something to admire, from the flowers of the magnolia tree in spring, to the scent of jasmine and ripening fruits in summer; from the acorns and falling leaves of the oak trees in autumn, to the structured boughs of the cypress and pine trees in winter. Guests are welcome to help themselves to organically grown produce, including many fresh herbs. The huge variety of fruit trees within the gardens include passion fruit, kiwi, apple, pear, cherry, apricots, plums, mulberries, cherries, elderberries, pomegranates, oranges, tangerines, lemons and figs – and there is a pergola of grapes, delicious in the autumn! There are so many places to sit and admire the glorious views that you need not visit the same spot twice. Favourites include the upstairs corner terrace where there is room to eat and enjoy the sunset over the bay; the shady forecourt, enclosed in trees and vines and the relaxed benches outside the living rooms. Surrounded by wooden decking, the pool is a blissful place to repose in the sunshine, with the views stretching out before you. The heated Jacuzzi is for up to eight people. It is filled with spring water from a well in the grounds and purified with chlorine-free products. Measuring approximately 2.5m square, it is the perfect place to unwind. Afterwards, soak up the sunshine on a sun lounger, or chill out beneath the shade of one of the ancient trees.
