This historical luxury villa overlooks Capri on the Sorrento Peninsula, with unforgettable views. Set in one of the most beautiful landscapes of the Sorrento coast, Villa Murat has panoramic views of Capri, Ischia, Marina della Lobra and Vesuvius from its windows, balconies, terraces and solarium. This highly refined private palazzo has an atmosphere of the 17th century, but with modern conveniences and comforts, including Wi-Fi internet access, private terraces and gardens, and dedicated full-time staff. This luxury retreat lends itself to relaxing and rejuvenating and is ideal for weddings and celebrations.

Villa Murat is located in the heart of one of the most enchanting spots along the Sorrentine Coast — Massa Lubrense. This is the mythical Land of Sirens of Homer’s Odyssey. Named the “safest community in Italy,” Massa Lubrense is the only beach in the province of Naples to have earned coveted Blue Flag status. Recently, Massa Lubrense was declared “the most virtuous city in Italy” for its care and attention to the environment and sustainability.

Not only is Villa Murat strategically situated between Sorrento, Capri and Positano, but it is also located along thirteen miles of inspiring coastline, with a network of trails for spectacular hiking. Daytrip possibilities include nearby Sorrento, the archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum, Naples and Vesuvius, Capri, Ischia, as well as Positano and the Amalfi Coast. Restaurants abound, with at least three that have been accredited a Michelin star rating.

The rooms of the villa are stylishly decorated with an original charm and old-world atmosphere, and have marvelous views over Capri. Bathrooms are outside the rooms, except in the ground floor suite, to respect the villa’s historical architecture. Particularly noteworthy is the Murat Suite, where the King of Naples, Joachim Murat, stayed in 1808.

The villa is not air-conditioned, but fans can be provided.

Many services are available on request.
