Charme and relax in Sorrento peninsula: a 1600th monastery transformed in an charming manor house. The whole place could be a setting for a Fellini film. Enthralling view over Sorrento coast.Excellently located for Sorrento (10 km), Pompei (22km) and Amalfi coast (16 km).
It is difficult to imagine to be a few km from Sorrento (km 10), Pompei (km 22) and the Amalfi coast (km 20) and at the same time away from crowds and traffic, but all doubts are washed away as you are approaching Astapiana Villa Giusso.
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.
In 1822, the property was bought by Luigi Giusso, duke of Galdo, the present owner’s ancestor. Now Erminia and Giovanna invite you to experience their hospitality and the beauty and fascination of this historical site. 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.
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 !
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).

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.

Activities for our guests
For dolce far niente lovers, you could stop on the park, on the shadows of centennial oak trees or simply take a look around at the many wonderful amenities of the monastery... and relax on the incredible stone terrace overlooking the Bay of Naples, have a guided tour through the Monastery and at the Villa Giusso’s farm or walk in the countryside along the ring-walls, the “well-being pathway”, the naturalistic pathway.

The farm
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).
Several activities: olive groves occupy a very big area, while you can find vineyards where soil is more dry. Then there is the area for farmyard animals (as chicken, gooses and ducks) and from three years we have also our cows, Carolina and Margherita. In the wood we can walk and have naturalistic observations. In a area closer to cisterns you‘ll find the orchards, the herbal plants and the trees of the “old fruit” (jujube tree, arbutus ect…)

How to reach it
Where we are
On a hilltop between Pompei, Sorrento and Amalfi coast.
1- Take motorway N.A3 NAPOLI-SALERNO. Be carefull!!! From Rome, there are two motorways going to Salerno : the first one N.A30 goes directly to Salerno and it isn’t good and the second one N.A3 goes to Sorrento and Salerno and it’s the good one. From the airport of Naples, instead you have to follow the indications for A3 motorway (to Castellammare -Salerno)
3- Follow the sign for SORRENTO
4- At SEIANO, immediately after the Moon Valley Hotel, turn left towards MONTE FAITO
5- Put to zero the speedometer. ATTENTION: don’t follow the GPS.
6- Continue towards AROLA; at 4,6 km (from the crossroad of Seiano), turn right towards PASSEGGIATE VICANE.
7- Follow the small road: you‘ll see the monastery wall, pass under a first stone archway, then turn left, pass a second stone archway and you’ll get in the park. The house is on the left.
