It is a splendid eighteenth-century villa set in leafy grounds with palms, rare plants and trees over a hundred years old. This remarkable place, which was once part of the old Bourbon pheasant-shooting retreat connected to the Royal Palace in Portici, is still as beautiful and impressive today as it was when Portici was the favorite destination of eighteenth-century noblemen. Today the town is attractive in itself and also a good starting-point for those wishing to explore the area and visit sites of archaeological interest and great natural beauty. It is close to the ruins of Herculaneum and Pompeii and to Sorrento and Naples, while the coast, dominated by the brooding Vesuvius, looks across to the enchanting islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida.
