This secluded and very private property looks over the enchanting bay of the extreme tip of the Sorrento Peninsula, that is Punta Campanella. This is the closest point to the Isle of Capri, which is the dominating feature of the spendid views enjoyed from the house.
The surrounding area is a protected National Park; it is close to a WWF zone and is therefore a true oasis of peace, immersed in the Mediterranean scrub and olive trees. A downhill walk, very steep at the end, starts at the entrance gate and leads to the pebbly beach below. If you feel too lazy to go down for a swim, you can plunge into the small pool and enjoy the sea view from the terrace or just relax in the garden under the shade of an olive tree.

The Sorrento Peninsula, arguably one of the most beautiful places in the Mediterranean, can be divided ideally between the side facing North, looking at the Gulf of Naples and the Amalfi side, facing South and looking towards the Gulf of Salerno. There is much more to it, though, than the lovely towns of Sorrento and Positano. All around the Peninsula there is a whole world to be discovered, still relatively unknown to mass tourism. Seven villages and many hamlets, each with their own history and traditions, are spread over a large area, most of which is under the municipality of Massalubrense. Looking over Capri the Bay of Naples, this area hosts some of the most exclusive villas of the Peninsula, offering a unique combination of idyllic, peaceful countryside and proximity to the more famous resorts of Positano, Sorrento and Capri.
Along the coast are small pebbly beaches, enchanting bays and sheltered coves, that can be best explored on hired boats
Massalubrense is the main municipality of the Peninsula and is a heaven for food lovers. Many eating houses, ranging from Michelin star restaurants to local trattorie, invite to savour the beautiful food of this fertile land and local shops display an abundance of fresh produce. During summer, every village hosts festivals; walking tours available (also individual).
