Spectacular sea views from this traditional garden villa with pool
Termini, Sorrento Coast
3 double bedrooms, 1 twin bedrooms; 4 bathrooms
This stunning two-storey villa stands high above the Bay of Naples, on the peaceful tip of the Sorrento Peninsula, near the village of Termini. The views from the terrace and gardens are simply breathtaking, sweeping across the green hillsides and rooftops to the expanse of blue sparkling water below.
Fondo Turiello is surrounded by a large, well-tended enclosed garden, full of bright flowers and Mediterranean plants. You will be spoilt for choice when deciding where to relax. There is a private pool area, with kidney-shaped pool measuring 8m by 4m, and 1.2m deep; open from the start of May until the end of September. The pool is surrounded by sun loungers and deckchairs and is a charming place to soak up the sunshine, with the gardens around you.
There is also a large terrace, with amazing sea views, well-equipped with tables and chairs, and shaded by unusual wave-like gazebos. Why not cook some delicious local food on your barbeque and enjoy a relaxed meal as the sun sets over the bay?
A warm sunny courtyard offers a quiet and peaceful place to read or daydream, with comfortable sofas and chairs nestling beneath the arches of the villa.
