wedding villa Astor costa amalfitana

Overlooking the Bay of Naples, Villa Astor is a majestic property that rises sheer above the sea on a cliff. With arguably one of the greatest views in the world and a splendor rarely seen, both inside and outside, Villa Astor has quite rightfully been labeled “Paradise” and it is named one of the trendiest Italian wedding venues by the Brides Magazine.
Villa Astor is a dream wedding venue – an unique and romantic spot perfect for elopements, wedding ceremonies and receptions. The stunning lush garden with panoramic views of the sea and Mount Vesuvius is a heavenly setting for romance and celebration. Dinning can be enjoyed al fresco under the stars or inside one of the many salons.

In the venue, guests can enjoy the legendary 270-degree views of Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius through the bedroom windows or from a spacious terrace:  but they can also take a stroll through the immense 20,000sq botanical garden that boasts the finest botanical collection of over 1000 species of plants and is considered to be one of the finest in whole Europe. Or Swim inside the natural grotto carved into the cliff or plunge directly into the sea. Or take a boat ride from a private “pontile” and head to Capri or Ischia.

In the 1970s, Villa Astor was acquired by a wealthy family, Mariano Pane and his wife, who welcomed many illustrious guests including Princess Margaret, Rudolf Nuriev, Gregory Peck, Sofia Loren, Franco Zeffirelli and Gianni Agnelli. Today, Villa Astor sets the benchmark for luxury accommodation on Amalfi Coast and has been named as a dream vacation home by many luxury lifestyle and travel publications such as Town & Country, Quintessence, Forbes, Bloomberg and the Telegraph.

We loved with a love
that was more than love.
