Let’s dream about Sorrento

A splendid Sorrento villa for sale by Sotheby's International.

Sotheby's villa
A beautiful seafront villa near Naples, in the South of Italy, built in Neoclassical style over the remains of an important Ancient Roman villa dating back to the 1st century,  still visible and part of the grounds.
The beautiful gardens with more than 1000 species, from palm trees to orange trees,  have secret paths through a lush vegetation, adorned with Greek - Roman statues, urns, fountains and of course breathtaking views.

The property has a swimming pool, but among the villas’ unique features there is its private sea access and a sea-platform so you could swim directly to an amazing grotto with crystal blue water.

Living rooms in Sorrento villa
Spacious and filled with light living rooms, all opening to terraces and the magnificent views.

Lots of precious marble everywhere.

I was there not long ago. It's the Villa Tritone in Sorrento. It is even more beautiful than the pictures, and more convenient to the town than indicatted. It was much restored by William Waldorf Astor when he was American minister to Italy in the early 1880s.

That hidden door in the fountain wall is an incredible stonemason and engineering feat! I am running to Sotheby's now! Ciao!
