The famous Villa Balbianello is located in a short boat ride from the village Balbiano, at the height of the forest covered with rich green cape, which crashed into the waters of Lake Como and forms a small peninsula. It was built in the late XVIII century by Cardinal Angelo Durini on the remains of a Franciscan monastery.
The owners of this fantastic corner changed throughout the centuries and make their contribution in equipping the Villa to their taste, but at the same time, preserving its unique originality.
An elegant victorian villa by the sea, located in 5km from the centre of marvelous Sorrento, dominates the entire area of Capo di Massa.
On the Villas terraces, the views catches the entire Neapolitan Gulf, starting from “Monte Faito” up to Ischia, Miseno, Capri… meanwhile, the Vesuvio stands out the deeply-blue sea, like a giant.
The Villa by the sea in Capri is a detached residence in a wonderful garden surrounded by climbing plants and cypresses. It was built by the French Count Jacques d'Adelsward Fersen in 1905. Fersen found for his Villa a romantic place on a cliff peak overlooking the sea, with arcs and dome roofs to give it a classical flair.
The Villa in Capri island was formerly called "La Gloriette" but subsequently took the name of Villa Lysis as a sign of homage to Liside, a disciple of Socrates mentioned in one of Plato's dialogues.
