A vacation reverie with expansive terraces, timeless views and direct access to the Mediterranean. Here is everything in your dream of Amalfi.

Adjoining Villa Mare Sleeps 6. With advance planning these two apartments can host up to 18 people.

Location

South of Naples, the Massa Lubrense promontory forms the southern arm of the beautiful bay of Naples. Across the bay from Naples is the town of Sorrento. Between the two, along the bay, are the towns under the volcano Vesuvius that the ancient Romans chose for their vacation homes: Herculaneum, Pompeii, and Stabiae. 

A curving road leads down from the Amalfi Coast road past a number of villas. Villa Sole is at the end of the road, as close to the sea as one can get here.

It is 80 steps down to the water where there is a sun bathing platform, toilet, shower and a ladder down into the clear, blue-green water.

There are sea walls 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.

We really enjoy the short walk to Marina della Lobra along the sea-side path. It is the charming nearby fishing village with several casual restaurants and dock where you may rent boat service.

Exterior

Weekdays a housekeeper tends the grounds, sets out beach chairs and provides an hour and a half of housekeeping.

Villa Sole is two floors above the street level where you may park up to 4 cars.

The villa has two parts, a four bedroom main villa and a two bedroom apartment that is separate in terms of entrances. 

Interior

The main terrace wraps the living room and dining area with a long railing overlooking the sea. The Isle of Capri fills the horizon and you can watch boats and the ferries that connect all the seaside towns. The second terrace flows around the bedrooms in the upper level, the tower. Directly below you see the reed mats that cover the Villa Mare terrace and that block your view of activity in the villa below. 

The four bedroom main villa is large, 2700 sq ft. Spacious living room, kitchen, dining room. Behind the kitchen is an outdoor, covered dining area.

Adjoining the main part of the Villa is a standalone apartment that is is rented together with the main villa during mid and high seasons.

The apartment of 750 sq ft has a large living and dining room. It also has its own terrace. There is a small kitchen.

Air conditioning in all bedrooms.
