Villa Sofia is one of a series of elegantly built holiday homes set in a private park. The villas are situated on a piece of sloping land which covers one hectare (2.5 acres) of coast and are partly hidden by the green tops of a luxurious olive grove. In front of the villas there is the sea and The Gulf of Naples.

There is a pool attendant and a friendly warden whose house is at the entrance to the park. He is there to welcome you and provide you with any information needed.

Villa Sofia is in the most beautiful and sunniest part of the park, at the top of a knoll covered in olive groves. When you are outside on the terrace or in the garden you can see only the blue sky and sea framed by the green treetops of the olives below and the outline of The Gulf of Naples with the unmistakeable cone of Vesuvius in the centre.

Villa Sofia is beautiful, the views are breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

Villa Sofia is beautiful, the views are breathtaking. The villa is very spacious with lovely personal effects.

The garden room is unique set into the side of the hill with rock features in the room.

You really need a hire car staying here as taxis into Sorrento are quite pricey. Mr Salvatore, who is the resident caretaker, was very welcoming and helpful. Thank you!

Loved our stay and hope to return.

Summer in Italy staff were extremely helpful throughout.

Thanks for a great trip!

We loved Villa Sofia

  • 5 of 5

We loved Villa Sofia!

To mention a few points: the location is great, views are magnificent, gardens are green, full of flowers and well maintained, the terrace is extremely comfortable, the pool is great and the people were very nice and friendly. Inside villa Sofia is very comfortable, clean and spacious.

If we have the chance we would very much like to come back to this spot again in the future. And definitely we would recommend others to go visit and share this wonderful experience with us.

I would like to say thanks for all your kind services. We have experienced nothing that disappointed us during and before our stay at Villa Sofia. Many thanks again and I hope we will be able to book a next holiday through your organization soon!
