Suspended between history and nature, Villa Murat is a wonderful setting for unforgettable luxury vacations. Its natural location on the extreme tip of the peninsula and its emotionally inspiring environment, with its frescoed ceilings and stylish decoration, make it a unique place to leap back into the past and to relax, away from the chaos of the town.
Among the most exclusive places on the Sorrento Peninsula, the historical 18th century residence of Villa Murat offers hospitality and courtesy in a refined and comfortable atmosphere. Although it does not have air conditioning, the particular location of the villa on the extreme tip of the Annunziata promontory means it is constantly cooled by a pleasant natural breeze all day.
The rooms have a discreet and original charm, are stylishly decorated for an old-world atmosphere, and have a marvellous view over Capri. The bathrooms, which are also in the same style, are outside the rooms except in the ground floor suite, to respect the villa's historical architectural plans. Particularly noteworthy is the "Murat suite," where the King of Naples, Joachim Murat, stayed in 1808 during the French fighting to recapture Capri, and which today still has the original decoration, frescoes and terracotta flooring.
Morning at the villa begins with taking a deep breath while facing the sea and the island of Capri, then going for a relaxing walk in the garden with its flowering plants, sun's greeting and birdsong, accompanied by the sounds and perfumes of nature. In summer it is the perfect place to relax after a day of touring or work: a dip in the swimming pool, and the English lawn with sun-beds, hammocks and wrought iron benches in a real open air lounge in the shade of particularly beautiful and prized centuries old trees all help guests to relax fully.
Everything is designed for the traveller who is attentive and sensitive to the inestimable charm of the wonders of nature and the views surrounding the villa, able to capture the essence, uniqueness and integrity of a place where an important piece of history has been written and … enjoy even the smallest detail.
