Villa | 7 bedrooms | sleeps 15
Dimora Relax is an ancient XVII century aristocratic building that once belonged to a powerful family of ship owners, the Mollo family, traces of whom can still be seen in the coat of arms placed above the entrance. Dimora Relax is situated in the center of a pleasant little village in the municipality of Massa Lubrense, in the heart of the Sorrento Peninsula. The whole property has recently been carefully renovated maintaining the charm of the ancient building without forgoing the pleasure of modern furnishings and all the latest mod cons, creating a luxury residence. An ancient courtyard is enclosed within the U-shaped building which opens on one side to offer a stunning panoramic view of the village and the sea, making this both a private and fascinating place. Part of the courtyard is furnished as a dining area for eating “al fresco” and also has comfortable outdoor sofas. The other part contains a delightful private swimming pool (6 X 3 m) with whirlpool, covered with bronze colored mosaic tesserae. In addition to the courtyard, the Palazzo has a number of large panoramic solarium-terraces supplied with quality outdoor furnishings so that guests can relax in all the various outdoor areas of the property at any time of the day. An unmissable experience: aperitifs on the solarium-terrace at sunset. It is possible to walk to a nearby Trattoria whose specialties include typical local dishes. On request, local cuisine can be provided at the property, for an extra charge. The indoor areas are tastefully furnished with great attention paid to even the smallest detail. The bedrooms are fitted with furniture designed by Roche Bobois which bestows a touch of exclusiveness to every room. The large lounge and dining room has big full-length windows that look directly onto the courtyard.
Massa Lubrense is just 2 Km away, whilst Sorrento is 8 Km away. The property is located in a strategic position for daily visits to all the major places of interest on the Sorrento and Amalfi coasts.

The Campania region
History, culture, natural beauty, crystal waters, dazzling beaches...and food to die for. Italy really does have it all. From Venice's architectural jewels in the north to Puglia's sun soaked olive growths in the south, there's something for everyone in this country of infinite variety.
Whether you choose to spend your time exploring the Adriatic Coast, with its white sands and dramatic promontories, or the gentle rolling hills of Umbria, where almost every view is reminiscent of a Renaissance painting, your time in Italy will be time well spent.
And let's not forget the Italian Lakes, whose serene and ageless splendour has beguiled visitors for centuries. As has the island charm and Sicily and Sardinia, two very different yet equally enchanting holiday destinations. Last, but by no means least, is there any other city on the planet that can match Rome for its combination of ancient history and cosmopolitan style?
Prepare to relax in the most enchanting surrounds you have ever seen...
Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO the Amalfi Coast is home to some of the best-loved and most beautiful coastal towns in the world, Positano and her less famous sister (and all the better for that!) Praiano and the ancient town of Amalfi, the town that gives the coast its name.
