A charming little villa, Luna is the exquisite guest house tucked into the extensive and beautiful gardens of a Liberty style villa.

Location

Located in the exclusive Sant`Agnello district of fabled Sorrento, Luna is one block from the sea where you have access to gorgeous views up and down the rugged coast. At the end of the street there is a large terrace where we enjoy the views while lingering at a table serviced by the cafe. Continue down the steps and ramp or elevator to the water where you may purchase a day pass to a typical beach club for enjoyment of the warm, clear Mediterranean waters. The beach club is used by local residents and guests from nearby hotels.

From the property, you see the green trees but you cannot see the sea.

Sant`Agnello is a part of the town of Sorrento. It has its own little train station on the Circumvesuviana train which links you to Naples via Pompeii, Herculaneum and the other towns on the route to and from Naples. You can drive or take the local bus into the bustling center of Sorrento. An automobile is handy, but not necessary. You can walk into the center of Sant`Agnello, a 15 minute walk, taking a taxi when dealing with luggage. We enjoy the walk through the neighborhood.

Exterior

Luna is as stand-alone villa with beautiful architectural style and design. It is hidden among the green gardens at the back of a larger, gated estate. The extensive gardens ensure privacy from the main house.

A lovely shared swimming pool graces the garden. The pool is shared by the family of the owner of the main house who use only occasionally. Size: 30x30 foot (10x10m).

Interior

Enter Luna through beautifully designed doors into the cozy living room. A comfortable sofa and easy chair grouping face a working fire place. Light fills the room from the front doors and matching ones at the far, dining end of the long room.The selection of fine furniture, fabrics and decorating demonstrates fine taste.

Off the dining room is a large, cook`s kitchen decorated with personality with bright, local tiles. Everything is up to date in the kitchen. At the back of the kitchen is a utility room with a washing machine.

Exit the dining room onto a dining terrace and enjoy the cool, verdant surrounding gardens. A spiral iron staircase rises from the patio to a rooftop terrace with built in lounges for taking the sun and enjoying the view over the wall to neighboring villas.

As you climb the stairs to the second floor of the villa, you will find a series of small, artful windows that frame pretty views.
