At 400 metres above sea level, Villa Giusso is in a fascinating natural position overlooking Sorrento peninsula and the bay of Naples, surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. This charming and historic setting, once a monastery, is nestled between the sky and the sea. As you walk through the stone archway into the main courtyard you feel as though you have stepped back in time and been taken back to the Southern Italy of the grand tour. The whole place could be a setting for a Fellini film.
For centuries the monastery held a spiritual magic – that magic is still felt now in the twenty first century.
The present descendants of the Giusso family now invite you to enjoy their hospitality and the beauty and magic of this historical site…
This is a special, unique place which speaks directly to the soul and makes your special day unforgettable... The perfect harmony between nature and culture, breathtaking views and an ambience of history combined with top quality hospitality and great attention to every detail of the guests’ desires.
