Description of the Sorrento vacation villa rental
With its iconic Mediterranean pine looming atop the cliffs, Villa La Terrazza is the villa that defines Sorrento’s coastal harbor, crowning Sorrento´s famed coastline overlooking the Bay of Naples. The layers of terraces grand and small reflect the Villa La Terrazza's namesake, offering both spacious and secluded perches overlooking the Bay. Built and owned by the Royal Gunderrode Family since 1896, Villa La Terrazza is still privately owned and operated by Andrea Azzariti Fumaroli, fifth generation of the Royal Gunderrode Family of Frankfurt, Germany.

The villa, built on ancient Roman walls, is an historical landmark, and its construction marks an important period in the nineteenth century. It was built by the great German Baron Maximilian Von Gunderrode and was originally named “Villa Nardi.” At the end of the 1800s, while sailing the Mediterranean, the baron arrived in Naples and fell in love with the coastline, ultimately choosing this site to build his summer residence. In 1896, the villa was re-named “La Terrazza.” The great Florentine builder, Romanelli, reconstructed the entire villa, making it larger and one floor higher. Fashioning it in the Italian Liberty-style, he incorporated stuccoes, images of angels, flowers, fruits, marble columns and staircases. Over the years Villa La Terrazza was coined “the house of love” for its hospitality and spellbinding charm.

Just a three-minute walk to Sorrento’s Piazza Tasso, and directly above the main port to Capri, Ischia, and Naples, the grounds of Villa La Terrazza offer both unparalled tranquility and a front row seat to the best that the Amalfi Coast region can offer.

Villa La Terrazza's interiors are decorated in a Mediterranean-style with soft pastels, original paintings and antique furniture. Marble mosaics, dating back to the 1800s, are inlaid across the floors. Each room has access to the private terrace, with swimming pool, adorned with sofas and marble benches. Cleaning service, with linens and towels, is included. Private parking on the property is also provided. Room service, car rentals, tours, boat and day excursions, and many other offerings are available to guests to augment their experience at Villa La Terrazza.

Villa La Terrazza is centrally located in the heart of Sorrento, and is steps away from Piazza Tasso (the main square of Sorrento), shops and cafes. The Circumvesuviana train station, with direct access to Pompei, Ercolano and Naples, is a five-minute walk from the villa.

Villa La Terrazza is available for rent year round. The terrace is also available for private events and wedding parties. Catering, bar services, music, tents and amenities are available upon request.
