Suspended between sky and sea, this charming, 16th century dwelling, once a monastery, so full of past reminders...but present, suggests to return in peace with oneself and others, throughout the contemplation of nature and the discovery of agricultural life.
A welcome drink await for you on the stone terrace; from this point the view is absolutely mesmerising: Ischia, The Vesuvius and the bay of Naples, against an amazing sunset. The bedrooms are full of romance with original iron-beds and 18th century furnishings.
Excellently located to visit Sorrento (10 km), Positano (16 km) and Amalfi (40 km), Pompei (22 km) and Herculaneum with the Vesuvius (40 km), Naples (50 km), Paestum (80 km).
Today the farm, at 400 m. upon the sea, in a fascinating natural position overlooking the Sorrento peninsula and Bay of Naples, is composed by different historical buildings and it is surrounded by 15 hectars of lands, partly cultivated (orchards, vineyards, olive grows) and partly spontaneous (wood of chestnut trees).
Villa Giusso offers a retreat of relaxation and simplicity unlike any other. If you are looking for a peaceful and enthralling getaway, Villa Giusso is the answer. There are six bedrooms and a nice self-catering dependance.
The bedrooms are or in the main foresteria or in the monks’ abodes. In the main foresteria, the bigger building, where in the past monks gived hospitality to travellers, the bedrooms are fascinating with original iron-beds and 18th century furnishings.
The monks’ abodes are the ancient cell, newly restored: the cell is like a cottage or little dependance and is composed by two double bedrooms each with bathroom. The bedrooms are charming and have a valuable modern advantage “the heating”. Here the guests have also a private garden at their disposal.
At your disposal, for weekly self-catering accommodation, the monks’cell “Annunciata”. The “Annunciata” dependance is like a cottage, ideal solution for four people, with two charming bedrooms, one double and one twins, each with bathroom en suite, with a useful kitchenette, private garden.
Within the monastery you can find some special rooms reserved for who require silence to work and concentrate: the “horses” hall and the reading room are available to host seminars, business meeting, workshops and small conventions of up to 50 people.
You may breakfast on fresh ricotta, fruits and home made cakes in the majestic kitchen with the original ceramic tiles and large fireplace. Dinner is also available on demand. If you are looking for something different, Villa Giusso is the answer: don’t miss this unique and relaxing opportunity to travel back in time.
