A magnificent property towering above the Gulf of Naples, built on the ruins of a Roman villa was the he former home of Sir Waldorf Astor. From the villa you have breathtaking view of Mount Vesuvius.

Perched on the cliffs of the Sorrentine Peninsula, overlooking the Bays of Naples, Villa Astor is an extraordinary private residence boasting one of the most beautiful gardens in Europe and the finest botanical collection. Still standing within the grounds are the ruins of an ancient Roman villa built by Agrippa Postumus, grandson of Emperor Augustus, are dating back to the 1st century A.D.

At the beginning of the 20th century, William Waldorf Astor, U.S. Ambassador to Italy, acquired the property and designed a splendid garden at the back of the house where a 13th century convent, subsequently rebuilt to house a Dominican monastery once stood. Another notable name associated with the villa is Benedetto Croce, famous philosopher and political activist, whose presence temporarily turned the property into the “headquarters” of Italy’s political chronicles. In the study of this unique historical environment, the splendour of which is enhanced with marble columns, Roman statues and many other artifacts, the official declaration for the first post-WWII Italian government was signed.

Villa Astor has been recently renovated by the famous French decorator Jacques Garcia. Villa offers the accommodation in its six luxury suites and in additional five bedrooms in the Torre. Villa Astor is also an ideal place for any kind of events, weddings and seminars.
