The villa was wonderful and the views were stunning. Sitting on the back patio and looking out over the Mediterranean sea with the Isle of Capri in the background has created a special memory.
The views were wonderful, the orchard trees on the property provided apricots, figs, lemons, pears, and olives, and the serenity, peace, and quiet was totally relaxing.
Minor issue: There was only one key to the annex room and we got locked out one time when the door got closed inadvertently. Another set of keys would have been helpful.
Everything! Spectacular views of the Mediterranean, easy access to Sorrento, Pompeii, the Isle of Capri, St. Agata, and close proximity to Massa Lubrense. Wonderful restaurants, cafes, and friendly town folks. Must go to Angelo's Bar down by the sea at the base of Massa Lubrense and Lo Stuzzichino Ristorante in St. Agata.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Massa Lubrense is within walking distance and a wonderful small town with cafes, restaurants, and grocery stores.
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring mosquito repellent if you're the type that attracts them. As noted above, in Massa Lubrense near the sea there is Angelo's Bar and Funiculi Funicula as well as several other great restaurants; in the town itself and in St. Agata there is Lo Stuzzichino Ristorante and many other wonderful restaurants.
The villa is down a small road off the main road as you are driving into Massa Lubrense. We used GPS, but the best recommendation is to call the key holder or property manager 30 minutes before you arrive to Massa Lubrense and have them meet you in town so they can take you to the villa. They both live in St. Agata, which is about a 20 minute drive, so call enough time in advance so you're not waiting long.
Check In Out:
The process was very easy and both Gianni and Lucia were very helpful. Gianni checked in on us daily and gave us many great recommendations for restaurants. He also booked our full day boat trip to the Isle of Capri. We celebrated his Saint Day in St. Agata at a restaurant with him and he covered several courses of food and an endless flow of red and white wine for all in attendance. Just an all around wonderful gentleman!
