The extensive gorgeous lush garden with panoramic views of the sea and Mount Vesuvius is an idyllic setting for the celebration of everlasting love.
For those seeking to hold an elegant outdoor wedding, there are several options of where to host the ceremony, dinner reception and soirée: on the terrace with breathtaking views, inside a natural sea grotto, near the gorgeous marble swimming pool, on a luxurious rooftop terrace under the stars or in any part of the splendid garden. For a detailed description of the property, we invite you to visit Villa Astor page.
Villa Astor has a long history that can be traced back to the 1st century A.D., when Agrippa Postumus, grandson of Emperor Augustus, first made it his residence. The myth says that Villa Astor, previously known as Villa Tritone, had illustrious visitors like the famous Roman poet Ovid who was born in 43 A.D. History certifies that this was a place for pilgrimages of Torquato Tasso, Italian poet, writer and dramatist of the sixteenth century. At the end of 1800, the villa became the property of baron Labonia who renamed it “Aux Roches Griges” as a tribute to the cerulean ridge that supported it. Then during the Belle Epoque, in 1905, the villa was bought by the extravagant English publisher Lord William Waldorf Astor who filled it with one of the greatest 20th-century collections of classical and Renaissance antiques. He designed a magnificent garden at the back of the property where a Dominican monastery once stood, which is considered among the top ten of the most beautiful gardens in Italy. The villa later attracted notable figures, such as the philosopher Benedetto Croce who lived there during the Second World War. In the 1970s, Villa Astor was purchased by the wealthy family of Mariano Pane, who welcomed several illustrious guests such as Sofia Loren, Gregory Peck, Franco Zeffirelli and Princess Margaret.
Nowadays, this incredible property has been named one of the most desired holiday villas in Italy and has been the magical setting for luxurious weddings.
Villa Astor has recently been restored with precious materials and furnished with objects and valuable antiques, chosen by the famous Parisian architect Jacques Garcia. The grandeur of the villa also appears in the size of the windows, which frame the stunning view of Mount Vesuvius overlooking the sea and the entire bay.
A private swimming pool in the idyllic garden setting complements the villa.
Last but not least, the location combines beautiful scenery with practical appeal. Although nestled in the heart of a tranquil neighbourhood, accessed by the typical, narrow roads of the old town, it is just a five minutes walk to the historical centre of Sorrento where one can fully enjoy the charming atmosphere of the local life.
For the more adventurous, the Sorrentine Peninsula has become the hub for a variety of destinations on the Amalfi Coast. Within reachable distance by car or by boat are Naples, Pompeii, Positano, Ravello and Amalfi, as well as the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida.
Villa Astor is a splendour both inside and outside and it is the perfect wedding setting for a celebration never to be forgotten.
the maximum number of guests for an event at Villa Astor is up to 200. For the safeguard, not only of the guests but also for the protection of such art/archaeological collections, the external and internal common areas of the villa are monitored by video cameras connected with a private security company and during the night the external areas of the villa are periodically visited and checked by private guards. There are 21 steps from the kitchen to the gym and there are 100 from the gym to the private sea access.
