Welcome to the Amalfi villa of your dreams. With views of Capri, access to the sea, and air conditioning this is the dreamed experience.

Adjoining Villa Sole Sleeps 11 + 1. With advance planning these two apartments can host up to 18 people.

Location

South of Naples, the Massa Lubrense promontory forms the southern arm of the beautiful bay of Naples. Across the bay from Naples is the town of Sorrento. Between the two, along the bay, are the towns under the volcano Vesuvius that the ancient Romans chose for their vacation homes: Herculaneum, Pompeii, and Stabiae. Since the 1800s, Sorrento has been a vacation choice for the rich and famous. It sits on a cliff so there are few sandy beaches. Villa Mare is on the Massa Lubrense promontory. Breathtaking Mediterranean views encompass a prized perspective on the fabled Isle of Capri.

To arrive at Villa Mare, you drive 2.5 miles (4k) past Sorrento. It is 13 miles to Positano and 37 miles to Naples.

A curving road leads down from the Amalfi Coast road past a number of villas. Villa Sole is at the end of the road, as close to the sea as one can get here.

It is 80 steps down to the water where there is a sun bathing platform, toilet, shower and a ladder down into the clear, blue-green water.

There are sea walls to calm the waters close to shore and a jetty where you can bring in a boat. You may hire a boat to take you out on the water and to the islands of Capri and Ischia.

We really enjoy the short walk to Marina della Lobra along the sea-side path. It is the charming nearby fishing village with several casual restaurants and dock where you may rent boat service.

Exterior

Villa Mare has a large terrace overlooking the sea. Maintenance is meticulous and weekdays a housekeeper tends to the grounds, sets out lounge chairs at the beach.

Villa Mare is one level above the street level where you may park one car.

Above and set back from Villa Mare is Sole, a six bedroom villa.

Interior

You can enter onto the terrace next to the villa entrance and immediately being to enjoy the spectacular view of the Mediterranean sea. On the left is a platform with the large outside dining table that seats eight. The terrace has areas that are open to the sun and others that have rush sun shades.

The living room furniture faces the television. Across the room a fireplace for cozy winter enjoyment. There is a sofa and four arm chairs. The dining area is open to the living room. Cool white walls and chair covers offset pretty turquoise tile and mosaic floors.

The living room and the master bedroom are air-conditioned. 

The kitchen continues with the same turquoise tiles as in the dining room. It has everything a cook needs with large (for Italy) refrigerator/freezer, microwave, four burner stove top and dishwasher.

There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Included in the price is daily one-and-a-half hour of housekeeping for care of the villa. One set of linens is included in the price. Additional linen changes available for a fee.

Villa Mare Review

by Meredith
We've just returned from a week at Villa Mare and it was heaven. Plenty of room to relax, and a terrific location, perfectly situated between Sorrento and Positano. We rented a car in Sorrento and drove ourselves around locally (we would suggest hiring a driver for Positano or Amalfi. And make sure not to rent a giant passenger van, as it will be too unwieldy for an inexperienced driver on those narrow, winding roads). We toured Amalfi, Positano, and Ravello, did a day trip to Pompeii and Herculaneum (leave early in the morning to avoid gnarly traffic), and took a day trip to Capri. We also spent a day scuba diving with Punta Campanella diving- they're located right in the marina at Marina Lobrano and it was an easy walk. But our favorite days were those we spent down by the beach, walking to Marina Lobrano for dinner (have the gnocci at San Michele) and breakfast (Angelo's is great), and relaxing on the beautiful terrace. Massa Lubrense is a beautiful town and we so enjoyed walking around the square, even going to the grocery store was interesting and fun. The villa was perfect for our family of 6, had everything we needed and more, and we were lulled to sleep each night by the sound of waves right below us. We could not have asked for a better location, or more beautiful sunsets. [Thank you Meredith, we are happy you enjoyed your stay! The Italy Perfect Team]

Villa Mare Review

This was our third time staying at this property. We stayed at Villa Mare twice and Villa Sole(upstairs property) once. Our hosts were lovely and very helpful. The house was clean, spacious, and beautifully decorated. The sunsets from our large patio were spectacular! The views of Capri and Ischia were breathtaking. We enjoyed our walks on the beach and to the nearby restaurants at the quaint Marina della Lobra. The food was delicious and the service excellent. We found this to be a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. It was easy enough to drive from here to Sorrento or other towns along the Amalfi coast. Massa Lubrense was a welcome respite from the busy tourist filled areas of other Italian cities. Being able to book the reservation and make payments in American dollars with a reputable person like Pat Byrne was one of the reasons we keep using Italy Perfect! [Thank you Rosanna, we are delighted you had a wonderful time and look forward to welcoming you again! The Italy Perfect Team]

Villa Mare Review

The photos are accurate -- the view is gorgeous, with Capri always visible. The unit is about 60 feet above the water. The kitchen, while small, is usable. The deck is huge, with a table seating 8 where we ate most of our breakfasts and some lunches. It was very quiet at night. My only criticism is that the shower in the master bedroom was quite uncomfortable, with no water pressure and less room. The shared bathroom had a better one. The location is quite good -- it's a 5 minute drive from "downtown" Massa Lubrense, which is a nice small town with food shops. Sorrento is a 20-30 minute drive. There are many good restaurants in the area, with two decent ones a 1km walk along the water in Marina della Lobra. The owners, Luciana and Gino, were very responsive and helpful. Italy Perfect was a pleasure to deal with. I wouldn't recommend this for those with bum knees or hips due to the steep, narrow stairs

Villa Mare Review

by Mary B
The Villa Mare at San Montano is an amazingly beautiful and tranquil villa situated just outside Sorrento with quaint winding roads leading down to the sea. Waking up every morning to beautiful views of the Med and the Isle of Capri, and ending every evening with splendid sunsets was truly magical. Our hostess, Luciana, and her support staff were friendly and helpful.

Villa Mare Review

by Rosanna C
Villa Mare was the perfect place for my family of 6. I was so happy we stayed in peaceful MassaLubrense instead of busy Sorrento. It was still close enough to Sorrento if we wanted to visit. The service was fantastic. The owners were very helpful. They were warm people who made us feel very much at home.I did not ever want to leave!!! The home itself was beautiful with wonderful views of the sea. There was a quaint harbor nearby with some very delightful restaurants.The kids loved the pool and the beach. Everything we needed was here. It was the perfect italian villa.

Villa Mare Review

by Nancy D
The Villa was everything you said it would be and more, Pat. We kept very busy sightseeing but every day we swam in the warm sea. The hostess was so welcoming. Jim managed to find his ancestor's hometown, a long but fulfilling day trip. We even learned how to make lemoncello.
