Villa Rosebery

A unique visiting experience within an exquisite and special panoramic context Un’esperienza di visita unica in un contesto paesaggist­ico di speciale bellezza


Visiting Villa Rosebery is a true joy for Botany lovers. Since 1957 it’s annexed in the Italian President of Republic real estate. You can find a very well maintained and crowded from great species garden that descends from Posillipo hill towards the seaside for about 40 meters. Approximat­ely 66 thousands square meters large, rich of Mediterran­ean scrub mostly rosemary but also laurel, boxwoods, myrtles, mastics and phillyreas.

Among bushes and natural borders many palms stand out: washintons, phoenix, chamaerops and even wonderful cycas revoluta. You’ll be left breathless gazing at gigantic examples of Sterlizia with their big spout on the verge of spreading. You can find many of these in the Villa Comunale in Naples even though not well looked after. Can’t miss the luscious aloe or agaves. Pittosporu­m bushes with scented flowers, edgy

In 2016 the President of Italian Republic Sergio Mattarella won the GreenCare Special Award for increasing the number of opening days of the garden assigning it to FAI volunteers.

bouganvill­ae, oleanders hibiscus and polychroma­tic flowering in enormous pot contribute to the peaceful and quiet atmosphere. The scent of rosemary is intense: towards the sea it covers the borders of many tufaceous walls. Lemon trees full of fruits are put in wide and tall earthenwar­e pots

Blackbirds, sparrows and seagulls populate this place looking after some food beneath multicolor­ed camellias. Interiors of the buildings are very well kept and we have much admired the Guesthouse terrace with white and blu ceramic tiles (“riggiole”) that perfectly stands beneath the green garden and the blue sea.

Two bronze mastiffs guard the Villa just like Villa Pignatelli. To visit VILLA ROSEBERY please check the opening hours on:
