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:
It was a wonderful stay. The owners were very helpful and the views could not be beat.
Enjoyed Most:
The peace and quiet and the gorgeous views.
Enjoyed Least:
Would have been nice to have an American coffee maker.
Surrounding Area:
Lots to see and do either by just walking or taking day trips. Good restaurants nearby.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Massa Lubrense is a short walk (15 min) either to the marina or if you are fit, to walk up the hill and into town (about 30 min.)
Tips or Restaurants:
Everything we needed was at the house. Bring good walking shoes if you are going to go into town. The restaurants down at the marina are great and the meals were fantastic.
Directions:
Had a driver and they had no trouble finding the place.
Check In Out:
Owners were great with both the check in and check out. They were a delight to speak with and had a wealth of information on the surrounding area.

Overall:
Extremely attractive pool area and views to Capri. Beach below is decent for swimming. Cooks were amazing. Staff overall wonderful. Owners and coordinators were great support and lovely people.
Enjoyed Most:
All the above
Enjoyed Least:
Probably just the irritable neighbours who are just sick of tourists coming into their haven. Also, in terms of location its narrow winding road down to town a bit tricky to navigate. Location is away from any action - but we loved that!!
Surrounding Area:
Local town 15 min walk has very well priced restaurants. Cute but by no means spectacular compared with other towns along the Amalfi. Can hire boats to Capri and surrounding area from Massa rather than have to go to Sorrento.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Massa Lubrense village.
Tips or Restaurants:
Hire chefs as it's so well priced and the food is very fresh. Restaurants in Massa Lubrense are very well priced if you prefer to eat out.
Directions:
GPS will find the location, but its narrow road down to the bottom. This property is right at the bottom of the winding road.
Check In Out:
Owners are very friendly and lovely and speak English well.

Overall:
This is an extraordinary property. Spacious, spectacular views, with great access to beach and within an easy and flat walk to Marina Lobra for dining out.
Enjoyed Most:
The views (from Capri to Naples with Ischia and the entire Bay of Naples in between), and the open, airy and spacious layout.
Enjoyed Least:
Nothing.
Surrounding Area:
This is a terrific base for exploring the Naples-Amalfi area without being too close to the heavily touristy Sorrento area.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Marina Lobra was a short 10-15 minute walk along a very easy (and attractive) path along the water. There are a few (very solid) restaurants, a bar and a small grocery, as well as private boats to Capri, Sorrento and Amalfi. This was a pleasant surprise
Tips or Restaurants:
Taking a private boat from Marina Lobra to Capri instead of going to Sorrento. Much faster and more convenient and pleasant, if a bit more expensive.
Directions:
No. But do not rent a large car or van - it is a very small and winding road down to the property. Anything larger than a standard station wagon would be difficult. We rented a Volvo V90, a largish station wagon and it was fine. Another family nearby rented a large 7 person Mercedes van and it was a huge headache for them.
Check In Out:
No - the on-site representative from the local agency was delightful, helpful and accessible.
