Villa Cimbrone, Ravello

After Beckett's death, the villa passed to his son. Many famous visitors came to the villa during the Beckett family's ownership. It was a favourite haunt of the Bloomsbury Group, including Virginia Woolf, Leonard Woolf, E. M. Forster, John Maynard Keynes, and Lytton Strachey. The actress Greta Garbo and the conductor Leopold Stokowski, stayed at the villa several times in the late 1930s. The villa was sold in 1960 to the Vuilleumier family, who used it first as a private family home, and for the past few years as a hotel.
