Looking out over the spectacular Bay of Naples from its lush hillside setting, this fabulous modern villa creates not only a welcoming haven but a fantastic base for exploring one of the most fascinating and vibrant areas of Southern Italy. From the dramatic scenery of the Amalfi Coast to the chic island of Capri and the fascinating remains of Pompeii under Mount Vesuvius, there is so much to discover nearby.

A dramatic winding road leading up to the villa passes bustling villages, verdant gardens and glimpses of the blue sea below. As you drive through the villa gates, you are treated to a glorious Mediterranean garden in bloom with sweet smelling citrus trees, shady palms, a cooling pool and sweeping views towards the imposing volcano of Vesuvius across the sea.

A striking, white mansion against the blue sky, the villa boasts extensive terraces on each level and elegant interiors with smooth marble floors, comfortable seating and a unique collection of Italian works of art. Ideal for couples or families, each of the four bedrooms has its private bathroom and outdoor space.

Large windows run along the sides of the villa, each with a perfectly positioned sitting or dining area, so you can make the most of the views to the green garden, azure sea and the dramatic silhouette of Mount Vesuvius beyond.

The pool awaits for a refreshing dip before a breakfast outside on the terrace or a leisurely swim and siesta after a day of sightseeing. It is in the garden where most gravitate during the long summer evenings.

Here you can enjoy long meals together and sample the freshest produce from the area, perhaps a traditional pasta dish with fresh seafood, incredible creamy mozzarella and juicy tomato salad, delicious gelato and a tangy limoncello liqueur.

Head down to the coast for a choice of beaches and the town of Sorrento for pizzerias, boutiques and boats to the stunning island of Capri or the city buzz of Naples.

What you should know…

  • The villa and grounds feel private, although as there are other houses nearby, it is not for those seeking complete seclusion
  • Although the outside area is enclosed and gated, young children need to be monitored outside, particularly by the pool edge where there is no barrier
  • Seiano train station is within walking distance from the villa although there are no pedestrian footpaths, so you need to do as the locals do and walk there along the side of the road

Half an hour by car from Naples airport, on the southern side of Mount Vesuvius from the city, Villa Arpino sits serenely on a hillside alongside other villas and houses. Local shops, a restaurant and bar are a handy short drive away, while the bustling coastal town of Sorrento is half an hour away by car.

One of the many advantages of the location is the villa’s proximity to Seiano Circumvesuviana Train Station, reachable on foot from the villa. Skirting around the marginal edge of Mount Vesuvius, the Circumvesuviana train connects Naples to Sorrento so is ideal for accessing some of the area’s best sights.

Jump on a train towards Naples and stop off at the fascinating archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Sorrento is the next stop along the line in the other direction, from where you can hop on a hydrofoil to the gorgeous island of Capri for the day.

Sorrento itself looks over the Bay of Naples on the Sorrentine Peninsula; sitting on the clifftops that separate the town from its busy marinas, it is renowned for its sweeping views across the waters and central Piazza Tasso, the cafe-lined square. The centre of Sorrento is steeped in history; within a warren of narrow alleys the Chiesa di San Francesco is a sight to behold; the 14th-century church in rich, opulent Italian style with tranquil cloisters.

Along the coast is an array of beaches to try, including a little sandy beach at Seiano itself, a short drive from the villa. The area around Sorrento is rich with culture, and the beautiful Amalfi coast offers so much.

Amalfi itself is so attractive with its ochre tones, set in a fertile region known for its fresh produce, boat trips and long sandy beaches are the tones of the day. Be sure to visit Positano for picture postcard views. Seafood restaurants are aplenty, as are small, little authentic towns set within the cliffs.

Pompeii requires a full day (and plenty of cooling drinks in the heat of the summer.) This ancient preserved town has been crystallised in time; the statues are a sobering and unforgettable sight. Parents of toddlers should be aware that the streets are cobbled; the cafe offers a good selection of ice lollies, however.

Naples itself is buzzing, and bustling working city; the markets, the narrow streets with their outdoor washing lines and cobbled alleyways offer an authentic taste of southern Italian colour and life, along with plenty of history, beautiful churches and allegedly the best pizza Italy has to offer.

Whether it be hiking, fine cuisine or historical sites, this part of Italy offers opportunity in abundance. The Lattari mountains hug the Sorrentine peninsula impressively. Jazz concerts in the open air are popular in the summer months, and the renowned Museo Correale di Terranova is a must-see for art lovers.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

In this part of Italy, during the summer months, the town life comes alive of an evening, with small children all part of evening piazza life. Running around the open spaces freely and safely in their evening wear as their parents look on from outdoor terraced restaurants.

The villa itself is ideal for children of all ages with its spacious interiors, lawned garden and an inviting pool for hours of fun after a morning sight-seeing.
Daytime siestas in the quiet, cool calm of the bedrooms will be ideal when the sun gets too much for smaller members of the group.

The local beaches are within easy reach offering sun loungers and parasols for hire, with an array of family-friendly waterfront restaurants and gelato shops.
The Marina Grande in Sorrento is a lovely little spot for collecting seashells and chasing fish while parents sit by sipping a cold drink.

For those youngsters interested in history, curious minds will be intrigued by the gladiatorial arenas and mysterious catacombs the area is rich with. Pompeii is a trip that younger members of the group will not forget in a hurry: ancient cisterns, passageways and ghoulish cemeteries bring history to life!

Children are just adored in southern Italy and welcome virtually everywhere! The glut of museums will offer an escape from the daytime heat - namely, Museo Archeologico Virtuale where ancient ruins are bought to life with holograms and videos, or the Museo della Carta - a story of the regions fine paper making traditions.

Small visitors will just be delighted by what is known as the best gelato in the world, and the sweet custard filled pastries and buns that the region is famous for.
