Villa Sofia is a nice apartment set into a larger villa. The apartment is approximately 100 square meters (1,075 square feet), it is

suitable for 6 people and has with sea views. There is a patio, a private garden and a

large communal swimming pool. There are three bedrooms, a sitting room, a

kitchen, a shower room with w.c. and two en-suite bathrooms with shower. The villa is

air-conditioned. It is 4 km (2.5 miles) from Sorrento and 2 km (1.25 miles) from

Marina di Puolo where there is a beach.

The villa is one of a series of elegantly built holiday homes set in a

private park.

The villas are situated on a piece of sloping land which covers one hectare (2.5 acres) of coast and are partly hidden by the green tops of

a luxurious olive grove. In front of the villas there is the sea and The Gulf of

Naples.

The large swimming pool is surrounded by an extensive garden and lots of

places equipped with sun umbrellas, sun beds and garden furniture. Everything is

at the disposal of all the guests staying at the villas within the park.

There is a pool attendant and a friendly warden whose house is at the

entrance to the park. He is there to welcome you and provide you with any

information needed.

Villa Sofia is in the most beautiful and sunniest part of the park, at the

top of a knoll covered in olive groves.

When you are outside on the terrace or in the garden you can see only the

blue sky and sea framed by the green treetops of the olives below and the

outline of The Gulf of Naples with the unmistakeable cone of Vesuvius in the

centre.

The villa has a large patio shaded by a white cloth under which a wicker

suite and a nice table and chairs are placed: it seems like an open-air sitting

room inviting you to rest or to dine “al fresco”. A little further on there is a

sunny terrace with an extensive panorama of the sea equipped with sun beds for

sunbathing.

Further below the rest of the private garden has been developed into grassy

stepped terraces that look over the sea and where big olive trees grow.

Here and there stony pathways sign, unobtrusively, the route that leads you

to corners of untouched Mediterranean vegetation and unexpected angles of sea

views.

The air is clean and scented, the sunlight and brilliant colours fill you

with the joy of living. You will be happy to find yourself spending your holiday

in this place!

The inside of the villa is also pleasingly decorated.

From the patio you enter the sitting room through two large glass doors. In

the sitting room there are settees, a table and chairs, a television and a C.D.

player. A short corridor leads to two bedrooms. One is a double bedroom with “en

suite” and the other is a twin with a single bed and one that folds up. Along

the corridor there is a shower room with w.c.

The sitting room also leads to the kitchen that is equipped with a cooker, an

oven, a dishwasher, a microwave, a fridge/freezer and a washing machine.

flat surrounded by greenery. It is decorated with stones and pieces of rock.

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.
