Named for the Italian for gold, no words can quite do justice to the magnificent opulence and decorative splendour of Dorata. Instead, just let this magical home transport you into a world of lavish self-care and breathtaking beauty. Perched steps above the glorious Mediterranean Sea, Dorata might feel like a world all of its own but is still wonderfully well-connected.

The airport is only 75 minutes from your door and the home is well suited for making excursions out to the nearby islands of Capri and Salerno. Decorated in High Baroque style, Dorata is bursting with art, elegance and grandeur.

Incredible fresco-adorned ceilings arch over the antique furniture and beautiful tiled floors contain hues of sunsets, giving every space a sense of warmth and splendour. The formal living room boasts towering walls with gallery-worthy artworks peering down at you from their golden-gilt frames. Sumptuously comfy sofas provide the perfect space to lie back upon and gaze at the breathtaking painted ceiling. A shining jewel of a study is focused around a magnificent fireplace with a handsome desk and deep, soft seating. A graceful arch leads through to the regal dining room with gilt-decorated bookcases and dining table beneath a glittering crystal chandelier. An entertainment area provides a plasma TV and surround sound music system. The professional kitchen takes cooking to a new level with its wonderful full stone fireplace and two pizza ovens - which might come in handy for the complimentary cooking class. There's a chef on hand to serve you gourmet meals befitting this fabulous space. The private wine cellar awaits to offer up the perfect accompaniment to a feast. The ensuite bedrooms are all fit for royalty with sumptuous drapery, grand beds and wonderful artistic touches. The two master bedrooms boast sitting rooms with a glorious, shared, sea-view terrace. Two junior queen suites overlook the Mediterranean with access to the exquisite gardens of lemon and orange trees. A further single room is a glorious den for children. After soaking up the sheer beauty and magnificence of Dorata, you can find further solace in the full-service private spa which offers a Turkish steam bath, hot-and-cold water showers, sauna, jacuzzi with oxygen-therapy, massage room, and exceptional tiled indoor swimming pool with waterfall and resistance-swimming option.
