"An old legend says that long time ago the mermaid Partenope has arrived on this lands. She had to run from the Rock Megaride; the water was boiling because of the lava thrown by the God Vesevo that hated Pompeii and Herculaneum."The loving feeling of the siren waiting for Odisseo gradually pervaded the land. She earned Donnathis property's love, which wanted this place full of love and loyalty to become her home."
The first core of Villathis property dates back to the late 1700s. It was the house of an ancient estate of the Sorrento peninsula called "I Molini". The initial structure has changed over time; in particular, the old courtyard has been attached to the house and in the 50's was created a pool that still retains the charm of the era in which it was designed. The ancient estate "I Molini" no longer exists because it has been dismembered into many small properties, however Villathis property retains all the features that have distinguished it: warm interiors furnished with taste, lovely seating areas in the garden / lemon orchard and the stunning view over the Capri Island.
Villathis property has been for many years the summer residence of the Princes d'Avalos, even if only thanks to the care of the current owners has recovered beauty and liveliness: a careful and meticulous restoration has, in fact, given back to the villa the splendor of the past.
The interior and exterior live the same space. The antique glass doors in wrought iron hand-forged by the old master artisans from Sorrento do not make any separation between "inside and outside": the reflection of the water from the pool as well as the sweet lemon scent accompanies the time spent in the home and, vice versa, the flavors from the kitchen will conquer the lover of reading in the shade of the olive grove. The colors are in one solution of continuity between the outdoor and interior furnishing tissues; all in order to make as harmonious as possible each moment lived in this house from another time.
