The garden and the swimming pool
The garden of Villa Arturo is a typical garden from Sorrento, where lemon and orange trees are cultivated. It is a garden filled with colors and intense perfumes: all among the green and shiny crowns of lemon and orange trees and their yellow and orange fruits reflecting their colors like sun-like little spheres.
And in case you come in May, you will find the citrus trees at Villa Arturo and all over Sorrento in bloom: the sweet and intense perfume spreads from gardens and takes over streets regardless of the traffic there might be. As an old Neapolitan song says, “it’s that scent, which along the sky and the sea of Sorrento, grants us joy to live and willingness to sing!”
Even from the swimming-pool you will see a green lawn rich in citrus trees all around you. Near the swimming-pool you will find sun loungers and umbrellas.
The swimming-pool is 9 x 5 meters (30 x 16 feet) large, and it opens from Easter to the end of October.
