Villa Malvarosa is a gracious 200-square-meter (about 2,153 square feet)

house above the sea which sleeps ten people. It features terraces and a garden

with spectacular views of the sea, the coast, and the island of Capri. The sea

is only 30 meters (about 98.5 feet) away. Villa Malvarosa is equipped with

air-conditioning and parking space. It is 6 km (about 3.7 miles) away from

Sorrento.

At Villa Malvarosa you will have one double bedroom, one twin bedroom and two triple bedrooms,

three bathrooms, a spacious living-room with divan bed, and a large kitchen with

a dining area.

The place

Villa Malvarosa is a sea villa, isolated and surrounded by its own garden. It is

located on the road which descends from the center of Massa Lubrense towards the

sea and the beach of Marina della Lobra. The villa is about 600 meters (about

1,968.5 feet) away both from Massa Lubrense and the beach.

Marina della Lobra is a tiny and picturesque fishermen hamlet consisting of a

few old houses gathered around the beach, which is in the middle of a small bay.

You will find a little port, shops, bars, and restaurants by the beach.

The house

Villa Malvarosa is an isolated house built on a sloping land high above the sea.

Although the sea is about 30 meters (about 98.5 feet) away below the villa, it

cannot be reached from the house due to the high and rocky coast of the area.

The villa is surrounded by a large sloping garden subdivided in terraces where

you will find olive groves and lemon trees. The garden stretches for 1000 square

meters (about 10,764 square feet) from the level of the road towards the sea.

Right at road level there is the entrance gate to the property and a large

terrace where you can park your car. Once through the gate, all you will have

before your eyes is a vast horizon of blue sea and a stretch of verdant coast

due to the lush crowns of olive trees. Amid the crowns of the olive groves and

looking down below, you will catch a glimpse of the top terrace of the villa, a

large rectangle area enclosed by a blue railing which overlooks the sea and all

the scenery around. You will soon feel eager to descend along the pathway

consisting of about 80 steps which will lead you to the house.

The house is two-storey high, and floors are connected either through an indoor

staircase or through an outdoor path within the garden.

The bedrooms

From the garden you will be able to go straight to the upper floor, where you

will find four bedrooms and two bathrooms. A long terrace overlooking the sea

and the island of Capri lies before three of the bedrooms. One of these three bedrooms, with a double bed and a single bed, leads to a second balcony with a sea view. The other two, a twin

bedroom and a bedroom with three single beds (two of which can be joined together to make a double, if requested), have patio doors leading to the terrace overlooking the sea. The fourth bedroom, a double, has a window looking out on the garden.

One bathroom features a bathtub with shower taps while a second bathroom has a

shower. A third bathroom, with a shower, is on the ground floor next to the

living-room.

Furnishings are comfortable.

The living-room

A beautiful indoor staircase communicates the floor of the bedrooms with the

living-room, on the ground floor. The living-room is spacious and bright. There

are two patio doors which lead to the terrace overlooking the sea and a third

patio door leading to the garden. You will find a comfortable living area with a

divan bed, two armchairs, a satellite-dish TV, and a table with chairs.

Interior is pleasant with beautiful age-old furniture and a glossy handmade

terracotta floor.

A small corridor leads to the kitchen. You will find a very spacious room

partially divided in two areas by a wall. In one side you will find a large

dining table and in the other a spacious and comfortable kitchen area. A patio

door will lead you from the kitchen to the terrace overlooking the sea. On the

terrace you will have a table with chairs to have meals outdoor.

In the kitchen you will find a four-burner stove, an electric oven, a dishwasher,

a fridge with freezer, and small appliances. Next to the kitchen there is also a

laundry-room with a washing machine.

The garden

The garden of Villa Malvarosa will definitely be one of your favorite places to

relax outdoors in the shade and feel the perfumes of a Mediterranean garden. You

will be able to enjoy perfect peacefulness in a place where the only sounds

caressing your ears will be those of the waves of the sea and the birds …

A large flat area next to the living-room is paved in stone and shaded by the

light and silvery crowns of very high olive trees, typical of the Sorrento Coast.

Before your eyes and framed by the leafage of the olive trees is the sea and a

picturesque glimpse of the scenery formed by the bay of Marina della Lobra, with

its background outlined by the island of Capri.

In this area of the garden you will find a barbecue, deck chairs, umbrellas, and little

whicker tables and armchairs. In another area of the large garden you will also

find a ping-pong table.

The sun-drenched area

An outdoor wrought-iron staircase will enable you to ascend onto the top terrace,

which is the great 'belvedere' of the villa and also a splendid sun-drenched

area of 100 square meters (1,076 square feet). From the terrace you will have a

360º view of the sea and the coast.

Particularly fascinating is the view of the bay of Marina della Lobra and the

island of Capri, which is seen clear and near you. During limpid days you will

feast your eyes on the entire arched Gulf of Naples and the islands of Ischia

and Procida. When night falls you will feel like stopping for a moment to enjoy

the sunset over the sea: watch out though, for when the sky turns from red to

dark blue and all the lights along the gulf are lit, you may become way too

romantic …

The beach

The closest beach is the one in Marina della Lobra, about 600 meters (about

1,968.5 feet) away. You can enjoy it free of charge or use services offered by

beach establishments therein. Near the beach you will find bars and restaurants

The Campania region

Campania region is the beginning of the 'mezzogiorno'. Translating as the 'midday' the phrase evokes the sun-baked south. And Campania - with its ancient Greek and Roman towns, rumbling volcanoes and glittering blue coastline, at times evokes Classical Greece as much as modern Italy. You could be a million miles from bureaucratic and businesslike Milan.

Throughout much of its history Campania has been at the centre of Western Civilisation's most significant entities. The area was colonised by Ancient Greeks and was within Magna Græcia, until the Roman Republic began to dominate. During the Roman era the area was highly respected as a place of culture by the emperors, where it balanced Greco-Roman culture. The area had many duchies and principalities during the Middle Ages, in the hands of the Byzantine Empire and some Lombards.

It was under the Normans that the smaller independent states were brought together as part of a sizeable European kingdom, known as the Kingdom of Sicily, before the mainland broke away to form the Kingdom of Naples. It was during this period that especially elements of Spanish, French and Aragonese culture touched Campania. Later the area became the central part of the Two Sicilies under the Bourbons, until the Italian unification of 1860 when it became part of the new state Italy.

The capital city of Campania is Naples. Campania is rich in culture, especially in regards to gastronomy, music, architecture, archaeological and ancient sites such as Pompeii, Herculaneum and Paestum. The name of Campania itself is derived from Latin, as the Romans knew the region as Campania felix, which translates into English as "fortunate countryside". The rich natural sights of Campania make it highly important in the tourism industry, especially along the Amalfi Coast, Cilento Coast, Mount Vesuvius and the island of Capri.

Massa Lubrense

Massa Lubrense is popularly known as the legendary Land of Sirens (from which it derives the toponym of “Sirenusion”), who lived along the coast and with their haunting and beautiful voices lured sailors onto the rocks. According to the legend, Ulysses passed for Ieranto Bay, and there he built the temple of the goddess Athena. Ieranto Bay or Baia di Ieranto, in Massa Lubrense, is one of the rare Italian place inhabited from the very ancient times, and the only intact creek of the Amalfi Coast.

Beyond the legend, the presumed aborigines of the area were two: Ausons and Osci, of which, a while ago, it was found an inscription nearby the eastern shore of Punta Campanella.

Its name derives from the Longobard word "mansa", which defined a territorial unit, with the adjective "lubrense" related to the Church of Madonna della Lobra, so named because it was built upon a pre-existing pagan temple (delubrum, in Latin).

Massa Lubrense is the climatic centre of the Sorrento Peninsula. It has a triangular form and borders at north-east with Sorrento, Gulf of Salerno on the left and Gulf of Naples on the right. The gulfs are separated by the peak of Punta Campanella (historically called “Athenaeum promontory”) that faces the island of Capri. This gorgeous strip offers fantastic occasions for excursions both overland and underwater.

In 1990, 11 pedestrian routes were found, miles away from noise, chaos, urban agglomerates, through lemon and olive trees. The classical walk is a triangle with its points in Termini, Monte San Costanzo and Punta Campanella. Depending on the weather, the temperature and other factors you can do the walk in one direction or the other; whichever way it is a just spectacular!

If you are interested in monuments, there are three wonderful points of interest.

Ex-Cattedrale: a church dated back to 1512 and rebuilt in XVIII century, which keeps a wonderful 1700's majolica floor and, in the apse, a Madonna attributed to Andrea da Salerno.

Church of St Maria della Lobra: built in XVI century with a magnificent portal and a 1700's coffered ceiling.

At a distance of about 7 km from St Maria della Lobra, you will find the wonderful “Annunziata” cathedral, remade at the end of 1600, with a gorgeous polychrome marbles altar.

Massa Lubrense is suitable for any kind of production: you will be able to taste sublime olive oil, fresh fruit, grapefruit, dairy products and cheeses. Excellent pastures feed optimum heifers, known as “Vitelle di Sorrento” and even the wine is unbelievably good: the tradition to raise grapevine in the ancient Greek way is still on!
