Villino della Nonna is an apartment near Sorrento for four people,

approximately 60 square meters (645 square feet) large. It is located on the

ground floor of a lovely country villa, and it has a patio with a pergola, a

garden, and a nice view of the sea, of the island of Capri and of the

surrounding country. The house is surrounded by green olive and lemon trees.

Villino della Nonna is approximately 3 km (2 miles) from Sorrento and 2 km (1.5

miles) from Massa Lubrense.

As you approach the house from outdoor you see the large patio shaded by a

pergola. The pergola has been built using long rustic wood poles, which is a

traditional practice of the country house around Sorrento. The patio is equipped

with garden furniture to dine outdoor. From the patio you can admire the profile

of the island of Capri, which serves as background for the green of the trees

that surround the property.

Indoor, the house has one large double bedroom and a living room with kitchen

corner and a bed divan that sleeps two. There is one bathroom. The building is

new and well kept, and the furnishing is simple, pleasant and functional.

You will enter the house through a glass door that leads to the living room.

The living room is spacious, and it has a kitchen corner, a dining table with

chairs and a comfortable divan bed that can sleep two persons. The kitchen

corner is equipped with a cooker, a large oven and a hood fan. Through a short

corridor you can reach the bedroom and the bathroom. The bedroom is spacious,

with a nice double bed. The bathroom has a shower and it also hosts a washing

machine.

At the top floor of the villa where Villino della Nonna is located there is

another apartment, which has an independent entrance. In this apartment lives

the owner of the property, a nice lady who likes to cherish her guests and is

very respectful of their privacy. The bottom floor of the villa hosts Villino della Nonna as well as another small one-bedroom apartment.

Villino della Nonna is reached through a narrow and ancient country road,

approximately 800 meters (870 yards) long. This road was built centuries ago,

when the only transportation was provided by one's own feet and perhaps a mule.

The purpose of the road was to provide a short path among the fruit trees to

reach the property. Hard to believe, the road has been left just the way it was,

with its characteristic stone wall on the edges, except for the pavement that

has been improved to let a very small car go through. While making the access to

the property more difficult, this road also has assured that the area stay free

of pollution and noise, and the air is fresh and clean like in few other places.

Along this very same road the center of Massa Lubrense can be reached in ten

minutes by foot. Because of the small size of the road large cars can only be

parked at its beginning, while small cars can be taken to the villa. The sons of

the lady who owns the property will be happy to drive you along the country road

with their car at any time. They are young and charming boys and they will help

you in every possible way.

This property offers a relaxing stay in a quiet and cute country house,

amidst the famouse grapevines, olive and lemon trees of the coast of Sorrento.

The sea is approximately 3 km (2 miles) from the house. From Sorrento you can

board a ferry to reach Capri and the other islands of the gulf of Naples, as

well as to reach Naples, Amalfi and Positano. Positano is only 30 minutes away

by bus, along a road that shows breathtaking views at every curve. The

excavations of Pompeii can be reached in approximately one hour by car, or else

taking one of the many trains that depart from Sorrento. Also easily reached is

Caserta and its famous Royal Palace.

The Campania region

If you think you have no idea of where Campania is, think again. This fascinating land, rich in gulfs, islands and legendary places, is home to the charming landscapes of the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento, the Cilento National Park, Capri and Ischia.

The Campania region is situated in the South of Italy and bounded by the Tyrrhenian Sea (that’s the name of that stretch of Mediterranean). The region is divided into five provinces, whose capitals are Salerno, Caserta, Avellino, Benevento and Naples (Napoli). Naples is also the capital city of the region itself. With roughly 6 million of residents, half of which lives around the city of Naples, Campania has more people than Finland, packed in an area which is 200 times smaller.

If you are fond of archeology, architecture, or simply want to see history come back to life, Campania is a must. The archeological heritage is huge: the temples left by the Greeks in Paestum, the buried towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the remains of Velia, the masterpieces kept in the museums, the churches… and, of course!, the Royal Palace of Caserta, built to be the most sumptuous palace of Europe, with its 1200 rooms.

If the majesty you prefer is the majesty of nature, Campania will not disappoint you. The sandy beaches and the crystal-clear waters of the Cilento National Park, the amazing scenery of the Amalfi Coast, the islands of the Gulf of Naples are just a sampler of what lies ahead of you. From the underground depths of the caves of Pertosa to the heights of Mount Vesuvius, there is something for everyone. By the way, being Mount Vesuvius an active volcano, we respectfully suggest you visit sooner rather than later.

An outline of Campania would not be complete without a mention of its culinary tradition. Many of the world-known Italian dishes have their roots in Campania: pizza, spaghetti, mozzarella, limoncello, cannelloni… Italians know Campania well for being one of the regions that offer the best food, and definitely the region where you can taste the best coffee. Espresso, cappuccino and now interesting variations on the theme such as hazelnut coffee make the day of the residents of Campania, and will make yours as well.

So don’t miss your chance to enjoy the holiday of a lifetime in this beautiful land, where art, history, nature and tradition come together to offer unforgettable thrills.

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!
