Villa | 7 bedrooms | sleeps 14
The villa is built on high stretch of land by the coast where only vacation houses are found. All houses seem as if partially "hidden" by gardens and olive groves. A road used by residents only gives access to the houses in the area.
You will enter Villa Allegra through a paved garden. From the garden, you will reach a big terrace where the sun, the sky, and the sea warmly greet you. Lean over the terrace and you will see a steep rocky cliff and a limpid sea down below. Frothy waves sweetly bathe the rocks and slowly reach a small gravel beach. The perfume of the sea fills the air.
The terrace overlooks a horizon of endless sea and also the green promontory north of the bay. A centuries-old cluster/maritime pine is rooted on the rock below and partially casts a shadow over the terrace. Its green crown is silhouetted against the sky and the sea, rendering the panorama even more enthralling.
At Villa Allegra, you will stay in a house with spacious rooms elegantly furnished in vivid Mediterranean style. The floor is in lustrous ceramics of local craft. Every bedroom and bathroom displays different decoration. Every bedroom is equipped with a TV and a system which regulates the temperature of the air-conditioner. All rooms are distributed on the three floors of the house, which also has an elevator.
There is a great 8 x 4-meter (26 x 13 feet) and 3,5-meter (about 11.5 feet) deep seawater swimming pool on the terrace. The swimming pool is also adjustable with a whirl system and current machine. At Villa Allegra, you will be able to join the usual in-water workout and the benefits of the sea water. A quite pleasant and unique experience!
Around the swimming pool, you will also find sun loungers to sunbathe, and cool and refreshing shaded angles where you can sit and rest and which are furnished with couches, tables, benches, and swing chairs.
The swimming pool and the terrace are beautifully lit at night. You will enjoy having candle-light dinners outside while feeling the breeze from the sea and feasting your eyes on the moonlight over the waves… The swimming pool is available from the 1st of April to the 1st of October.

The Campania region
Campania is an extraordinary mixture of art, culture and nature; a land where ancient and modern fuse together in a grandiose spectacle which has lasted for thousands of years.
CLIMATE: A typical Mediterranean climate; hot, dry and sunny in Summer and although cooler in the winter, it still has lots of bright and sunny days and several hours of sunshine a day.
POSITION: Campania is on the south west coast of Italy on the Mediterranean sea, about 2 hours south of Rome.
PLACES OF INTEREST: Naples is one of Italy's most vibrant Italian cities. “Bella Napoli”, where the pizza Margherita was born, is renowned for the character of its people who say “see Naples and then die”. Admire the impressive panorama and the former Royal family palace in Piazza Plebicito. You can wander through the famous 'spaccanapoli', with its church of Santa Chiara.
LOCAL SPECIALITIES: The region is famous for its hand-crafted inlaid wood furniture, music boxes and artefacts. Also hand-made leather shoes, jewellery and ceramics are very popular.
CUISINE: Italy is most famous for its pizza and it is impossible to visit Camapania without eating a pizza, after all pizza was invented and transformed in Naples! Pizza are cooked in bread ovens and are fed firewood to reach a high temperature which cooks the pizza quickly and perfectly, with the oven enhancing its flavour.
Seafood is served fresh in most restaurants or can be bought from the local markets and fish shops. Arguably some of the best wines come from Italian grapes. In Italy you can enjoy your favourite Italian wines for much less than you would pay elsewhere.
Massa Lubrense has many beautiful marinas including Puolo Marina celebrated by the Latin poet Stazio for its beauty. This bathing beach still has visible traces of its ancient past. Here, among the neat low cottages of the local fishermen, you can still see the columns of temples dedicated to Hercules and Neptune.
Also Lobra Marina, where there was once a temple dedicated to Proserpina, is an ancient characteristic village of fishermen and carpenters of the local ship-building yard. The temple was changed into a Catholic church during the Middle Ages.
The Cantone Marina has the picturesque Nerano beach which is loved by tourists and sunbathers. For thousands of years it has been telling immortal and beautiful tales, such as the story of Ulysses and the Sirens, who lived here according to legend. The stunning Bay of Ieranto Nature Area is one of the 20 Italian Marine Parks which can be reached either by boat or by a path leading from the centre of Nerano.
Both Sorrento and Amalfi are near by and are ideal places for shopping. From the sea front to the narrow streets, there is an abundance of souvenir shops, small distilleries producing limoncello and other typical liqueurs, as well as thousands of objects made by local craftsmen, from the Vietri ceramics to the unique coral jewellery.
