Villa Cerqueto is a restored farmhouse in a peaceful hillside position overlooking the Gulf of Naples close to Massa Lubrense. Within a 20-minute drive is the town of Sorrento, with a string of sandy beaches lapped by azure waters dotted along the coast.

With the countryside, fascinating towns and the glittering sea so close by, activities such as hiking, bike rides, watersports and historic sightseeing are all just a short journey away. You also have your own slice of countryside to enjoy at Villa Cerqueto. The extensive, terraced gardens offer a mix of lush lawns and tucked-away courtyard corners for unwinding and taking in the sea views.

This historic villa dates back to the late 18th century and is set over three floors, with each floor offering self-contained accommodation. There are five ensuite double bedrooms in total, making Villa Cerqueto ideal for a small group of friends or families wanting to enjoy a holiday together, with additional space and privacy.

The bedrooms, living/dining areas and kitchens of the ground and first floors are full of antiques and original features that sit alongside modern comforts and conveniences. Terracotta and faience tiles remind you of the villa's heritage wherever you choose to relax, dine or socialise. The top attic floor is more contemporary in style, with a stunning open lounge space for casual gatherings and moments of quiet contemplation. There's also a large terrace that opens up some of the very best views.

More terraces and dining areas are on offer around the grounds of the villa. Dine al fresco in the garden or on the villa's charming main terrace. Ancient features such as a water well and fountain sit just metres away. The lawned gardens are also home to a swimming pool and a number of seating areas. And the abundance of typical Mediterranean trees, plants and flowers creates an enchanting atmosphere by day or by night.

Head to nearby Massa Lubrense to enjoy fresh seafood meals in a choice of restaurants by the pretty harbour. And soak up sea views from the beach in the fishing village of Marina di Puolo, which is just a 20-minute drive from the villa.

The town of Sorrento is also within easy reach, with plenty of historic sightseeing to do in its old town. Piazza Tasso is a popular place to relax with a drink after shopping and sightseeing.
