Villa Astor Sorrento is one of the most charming properties in Southern Italy, being located on the Sorrentine Coast, very close to the so popular Amalfi Coast. Entering Villa Astor is like stepping into your very own paradise: the colorful buildings and picturesque views of the coast surround the villa to the left and right, and a central view of the Vesuvius volcano is what one can enjoy while having breakfast, welcome cocktails, dinner or an intimate ceremony on the terrace.

Every single decor and art piece was curated to create a perfectly cohesive look and feel inside the villa, featuring authentic Greek and Roman antiques, while the tropical gardens with their lemon and palm trees, roses and camellias, invite you to forget there is even a world outside this magical place.
