A garden path runs from the villa to a particularly spectacular scenic overlook on the estate, where the outdoor infinity pool sits, surrounded by lush flowers and facing the whole of the Bay of Naples stretched out to the horizon, including the island of Capri and the dramatic Sorrento coast. Guests can relax on the sundeck surrounding the pool, furnished with comfortable yet elegant loungers reflecting the classic and contemporary style of the villa, and while away the hours in the peace of the garden and pool.

Residenza Molini can accommodate up to 20 guests in its 5 suites, with traditional vaulted and frescoed ceilings and a warm color palette combining bright whites with yellows and blues.
Guest suites all boast independent entrances and small private terraces with views over the Bay of Naples, furnished with loungers and coffee tables carefully chosen to balance the elegance of the palazzo, which give each suite that extra touch of privacy and independence of a separate mini-villa inside the main palazzo.
The estate includes the outdoor pool at Residenza Molini, where there is a portico made of tufo stone decorated with local majolica tiles from Vietri. Under the portico, there is a full professional kitchen, with a wood-fired oven and barbeque perfect for preparing a summer dinner with family and friends and eating al fresco in the outdoor dining space.
