Villa Giusso Astapiana
from £73 /night help
B&B | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12
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 awaits 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!

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 dependence.
The bedrooms are in the main foresteria or in the monks’ abodes.
In the main foresteria, the bigger building, where in the past monks gave 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 dependence 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” dependence 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.

The Tuscany region
From Roman times our land is called “Campania Felix”, not only for the incomparable natural beauty of this region but also for its extraordinary suitability for agriculture.
Thanks to fertile soil, mild climate with Tyrrhenian breezes, the complex landscape, the plentiful water supply on the surface of the land within rich underground sources, our Campania felix has an incredible richness on tastes, colours, smells who become culture.
It is very important to keep and to protect the local vegetable heritage and the biodiversity. Without exaggerating we can talk about them as real “cultural assets”: these products have been recognized from the European Union and their names are Dop (denominazione di origine protetta) e Igp (Indicazione geografica protetta).
At Astapiana we produce:
~ melannurca campana (igp)- a special delicious red apple with an excellent flavour -,
~ noce di sorrento (igp)- a walnut with a kernel cream coloured, soft and crunchy with an extremely pleasant flavour and an unusual aroma and aftertaste -,
~ kaki napoletano (igp)- a persimmon with an excellent flavour, thanks to its high level of sugar -,
~ limone di Sorrento (igp)- a lemon with an intense aroma thanks to its considerable richness in essential oils -, ~ ~ pomodoro di Sorrento- a tomato with a light red colour and sweet delicate flavour -,
~ melanzana “cima di viola”- an aubergine with a tender flesh and particularly mild flavour -,
~ zucca lunga di Napoli- a pumpkin with a sweet aromatic flavour -,
~ broccolo “friariello” di Napoli- a special sprouting broccoli –,
~ mela limoncella– a special yellow apple with a light flavour of lemon -,
~ nocciola mortarella campana- an hazelnut with a nut ivory–white coloured, firm and decidedly aromatic.
Perfect location to visit the magnificent sites of the area: Pompei 22 km, Herculaneum and Vesuvius 32 km, Naples 45 km, Sorrento 12 km, Positano 18 km, Paestum, 80 km, Royal palace of Caserta. From Sorrento there are frequent hydrofoils and ferry boats leaving for the island of Capri, and from June to September, for Positano and the Amalfi coast and for the island of Ischia.
- nearest beaches at 7-8 km (30-40 mn drive)
- Spa Lo Scrajo at 30 mn and Terme Stabiane (40 mn), the last ones known from Roman times…
- Parco Marino di Punta Campanella (10 km)
For ramblers, Villa Giusso is very well situated to explore the hidden treasures of the Amalfi and Sorrento coasts along beautiful walks such as il Sentiero degli dei e l’Alta via dei Monti Lattari. For passionate hikers, journey to Positano with sea bath and return…
