Villa Il Gioiello

12 guests · 6 bedrooms · 5.5 bathrooms
A lively town known for its cafés, lemon trees, and history, Sorrento has been a must-see destination on grand European tours for generations. Naturally, when the Count de Mario Caracciolo, the last descendant of a prestigious Neapolitan family was seeking the perfect place to call home he chose this villa – known as “the jewel” or il gioiello, of Sorrento.
Purchasing the home in 1970, the count filled the home with his collection of antiques and treasures. Set against a sleek white backdrop, his paintings, vases and sculptures add a historic and personal touch to the otherwise modern home. A lover of all things beautiful, he once said, “Having something unique is not a sin… but just a nice luxury to be granted!”
The 450 square meter (4,845 sq. ft) home is designed over several levels, offering plenty of room for you and your guests. The spacious open plan living room is bathed in natural light, overlooked by a small private study. The sophisticated dining area is furnished with a white stone dining table; more dining areas are available poolside, on the large private terrace.
With five double bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, Villa Il Gioiello comfortably accommodates up to ten guests. An onsite villa manager offers a wealth of local knowledge on Sorrento restaurants and excursions, and three hours of daily maid service are also included.
For those seeking a villa in the heart of Sorrento, it’s hard to image a more perfect setting than Villa Il Gioiello. The nearest beach is just a one-minute walk away, and a few minutes more will bring you to the nearest restaurants. The nearest train station is within walking distance, providing convenient access to the rest of the Amalfi Coast, while outdoor parking is also available on this gated property.
