Balcony Capri View, Sea Access
- Name: Stella
- Sleeps: 2 + 2
- Bedrooms: 1
- Bathrooms: 1
- Price: €1000-€1200/week
A balcony directly above the sea; you can imagine yourself on a Mediterranean cruise. But 20 steps down you can dive right into the sparkling blue sea. Can be rented in conjunction with Villa Mare and Villa Sole located just up the hill.
Stella is situated in the riviera residential area of San Montano, a suburb of Sorrento. A path starts at the beach and follows the coast for about a kilometer leading straight to the little fishing village of Marina della Lobra where you will find a bar and a food shop.
Stella is accessed down 60 steps through a tunnel that starts in the parking area and ends at the sea. Stella is partway down the sea access for three other apartments.
To arrive at Stella, you drive from the North/South highway, past Naples and along the first part of the winding, cliff-edge Amalfi Coast Drive through and past Sorrento. A curving road leads down from the Amalfi Coast road past a number of villas. Stella is at the end of the road, as close to the sea as one can get here.
From the apartment there are 20 steps down to the water where there is a sun bathing platform, toilet, shower and a ladder down into the clear, blue-green water.
A groundskeeper puts out lounge chairs and umbrella.
There are some break waters (see photos) to calm the waters close to shore and a jetty where you can bring in a boat. You may hire a boat to take you out on the water and to the islands of Capri and Ischia and it can pick you up here.
The glory of this apartment are the large picture windows and balcony beyond that open directly onto the Mediterranean and a direct view of the fabled island of Capri.
The cheerful furnishings are beach casual for a bright, clean feeling. The living room is separate from the cosy bedroom. Charming touches like pieces of ancient architecture serve as night stands. The living room has a sofa bed that can accommodate one adult or two children.
Modern conveniences include air-conditioning and washing-machine.
1 bedroom with queen size bed and closet. Sliding door separates bedroom from the living room. Bedroom has no windows.
Bathroom has shower with curtain, toilet, sink, bidet.

Our Guest Reviews
The perfect little gem
This little apartment is absolute perfection. Overlooking the sea, just a few steps down to the promenade, which provides a wonderful 10 minute walk to the marina, with amazing seaviews and the island of Capri. At the marina there is a great seafood restaurant and a pizza/pasta bar. It has a wonderful atmosphere and isn't too "touristy"
Walking up to the town of Massa Lubrense was very steep and took around 30 minutes. If you have difficulty walking, I wouldn't recommend this. Either drive around to Massa, or take a taxi. Take care when coming out of the little road onto the main road at the top. It's on a bend, so take your time.
The apartment has everything you could want. Tastefully decorated in blues and whites, with a kitchen, lounge/dining room, bathroom and bedroom. Lovely, lovely place to stay.
Pat, at Italy Perfect was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble for the "Meet & Greet" staff at the villa.
Very Highly Recommended
[Thank you so much Eunice, we are delighted you enjoyed staying at the Stella! The Italy Perfect Team]
