About The Experience
Located in a quiet residential area near Sorrento, this villa is surrounded by Mediterranean plant life including lemon trees, palms, and bougainvillea. From the terrace garden you can take in the beautiful sea and island views, or go for a swim in the private pool. The villa is divided into two adjacent buildings—both connect at the covered patio, which faces the garden and sea. The unique layout provides several little nooks to retreat to and enjoy the peaceful ambiance of the locale. There is also direct access to a rocky beach below. From the beach there is a footpath that leads to the tiny little village Marina della Lobra where you can find a bar and grocery store.
Location Description

This villa is located just 1km away from the center of Massa Lubrense, which has many restaurants, bars, shops, and one of the best pastry shops in the area! There are also excellent pizzerias, mini-markets, and a discotheque. A short drive away, there’s the lovely seaside town of Sorrento, which is famous for its limoncello (an alcoholic aperitif) and inlaid wood – you can visit one of the workshops still in operation today to see this centuries-old craft in action. Visit Sorrento’s 10th century Basilica di San Antonio, which was built to honor the patron saint of navigators and still attracts sailors’ offerings to this day. The 11th century Cathedral houses frescoes and a bell tower with a ceramic clock. The "Sorrento Summer of Music" is also held at the cloisters from July to September, and features international musicians performing alongside emerging talents.

Nearby Attractions: Positano is nearby. The town’s famous Spiaggia Grande has been described as one of the most beautiful beaches along the coast. You can also wander in to the many colorful boutiques or quaint cafés. If time permits, hire one of the town’s “sea taxis”; small boats which transport visitors to secluded bays only accessible by boat. Bus stops can take you up and down other beautiful towns along the coast, including Amalfi. Amalfi is a town that dates back to the 6th century and was once an important trading center with historical and medieval architecture throughout the town. The main sites include the Duomo, in Amalfi's center, the cathedral of Sant' Andrea, which dates back to the 11th century, and the Cloister of Paradise. There is also a museum dedicated to the works of Morelli and a museum where you can view artifacts of Amalfi's long and interesting history. During the summer months, there are daily ferries leaving from Positano to Capri, Sorrento, and Naples.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
Magical. The villa is gorgeous with amazing greenery and is kept beautifully. The owners were incredibly sweet and helpful and even drove us to town to get groceries one day.
Enjoyed Most:
The grounds. They are gorgeous. The view is of the island of Capri on the left and Naples in the right. The sunsets were amazing!
Enjoyed Least:
The beds were not comfortable and the shower in the annex and tower guest rooms were very small.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Nothing was in walking distance unless you are in incredible physical shape. The road up to town is a very long aims winding steep hill.
Tips or Restaurants:
We loved Angela's for pizza and drinks at the Marina which you can walk to from the villa along the coast there is a cement path. We also enjoyed La Terna and Red Lion in Sorrento .
Directions:
We had a driver pick us up at the airport. We arranged tours through RentVillas.
Check In Out:
Very easy on both ends of the trip. No problems at all.

Overall:
It was an amazing experience and everyone has a terrific time. There was ample room for everyone to feel comfortable. The location was stunning and close enough to all attractions.
Enjoyed Most:
The views and location. It was inspiring.
Enjoyed Least:
The stove was challenging.
Surrounding Area:
The area has many wonderful restaurants and other activities for excursions and site seeing,
Nearby Events or Locales:
Massa Lubrense. It might have been but it was too steep to walk,
Tips or Restaurants:
We enjoyed all the local restaurants. Having the villa pre-stocked with items was extremely useful. We shopped every day for some local goods (mozzarella and Parma ham and bread) which were to die for and highly recommended. Da Adolfo was quite a fun experience.
Directions:
We used a driver to transport us from airport to the villa and he did his research to get there. We used GPS for excursions but once knowing where the villa was, it was not complicated.
Check In Out:
Luciana and Gino were very attentive and lovely in every way. Giorgio came daily to help with the pool and clean and he was terrific. Check in and out were smooth with no hidden aspects.

Overall:
Our group had an unforgettable experience at Villa Flora. The property is beautiful and the views are unsurpassed. Four couples shared this villa with plenty of room for the group to gather or when desired, plenty of areas for privacy. Although most previous reviewers indicated that a car is not necessary, we wish we would have rented a small car just for quick runs to a store.
Enjoyed Most:
The beauty and comfort of the home and property.
Enjoyed Least:
Our group did not understand the need for daily housekeeping, which renters are forced to pay and is expensive. We would not have minded if housekeeping included fresh towels and linens. Without a dryer, washing our own towels was difficult as hanging the wet towels outside was not always convenient or possible due to rain. The housekeeper cleaned the pool, swept the outdoor areas and tidied the bathrooms and kitchen (which our group kept well maintained on our own!) This is the only negative in renting this property. Daily cleaning should be optional.
Surrounding Area:
We enjoyed walking to the fishing village where we found great restaurants.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Massa Lubrense was the nearest small town. It is within walking distance along a busy road. One must be in shape to navigate the long and winding uphill climb. Also, because there are no sidewalks, one must be extremely careful.
Tips or Restaurants:
Future renters must bring their own toiletries, including bath soap and shampoo. Also, if a renter prefers a clean bath towel, I suggest packing one to use while waiting for the villa's towels to dry. We were provided one towel per person to use for the entire week.
Directions:
We did not have a problem locating the villa as all of our taxi drivers at the Sorrento port are aware of the property.
Check In Out:
The check-in and check-out process were seamless as the owners of the villa live on the property.
