Il Verde is built on the hillside with magnificent poolside views over the bay of Naples, and is set in delightful gardens and BBQ area. It is a perfect retreat from the traffic chaos of the amalfi coast - tranquil and picturesque.
The apartment itself has a small and quite dark living space comprising a just adequate kitchen (with an inadequate dishwasher), dining table and 2-seater settee. The beds were quite firm and would benefit from extra pillows. The outdoor dining terrace is private, surrounded by hedges of rosemary and there is a large communal BBQ area in addition.
The apartment can feel quite cold and damp in cooler temperatures, so would only really recommend this for the summer months.
The pool is huge and is shared between 3 apartments, but has no shade and, while we were there, no umbrellas.
Feeling Italy were very welcoming on arrival but when we asked for a coffee pot that could serve more than 1 person, we were told that nothing bigger was available - we found a large pot at a local shop and left it for future guests. Enjoy. Read more
We would like to clarify something about your remarks:
- Dishwasher: we never had problem and/or complain about this
- Extra pillows: you coulh have asked for these, we have cleaning lady coming every 2 days at the property, she could have provided you some pillows
- Pool umbrellas: The pool area is normally open from May, as stated i nthe description. This year, we' have anticipated the opening in April, but it was not due. Umbrellas have been added in May. Guests have plenty of shade in the pool opening season (May . October)
- Coffe pot: this is adequate to the number of guest the apartment can host, as well as the rest of the furnitures in the apartment. The coffe pot you had is intended to prepare coffe (espresso) for 4 people.
You're always welcome here!

A group of 4 of us spent the last week of September at this wonderful villa set in the beautiful hillside hamlets of Masse Lubrense. Though it definitely requires a car to get to and fro, the place and it's amazing pool with vistas over the Naples Penninsula and Capri, is a welcome retreat after a day exploring the amalfi Coast and Sorrento Penninsula. We wouldn't hesitate to rent this villa again, or recommend it to friends. Our contacts at Feeling Italy were very helpful, especially on our day of arrival. After easily getting lost in the hillside villages, they escorted us to the villa. As for feedback, having a ready supply of toilet paper, dish soap, dish clothes and some basic kitchen cooking items such as salt and pepper, oils etc. would have been helpful. Also, the beds are very firm and extra pillows would have helped. Having these essentials and comforts would have definitely earned a 5 star rating. Also, due to stairs and narrow doorways, this is not an accessible property for wheelchair users or people with mobility issues. Thank you to alberto, the groundskeeper, for maintaining such a beautiful space!

We had a fabulous time staying in II Verde. It was exactly as described in the advert. The pool was superb, if a little cold - we stayed at the end of May, the views were awesome and the accommodation and grounds perfect. There is so much to see and do in this area of Italy that you will need at least two weeks to see it all, if not more. We would definitely recommend this accommodation. The Feeling Italy staff were very helpful and friendly. Thank you for everything and hope to see you again some day :)
situation idyllique, vues imprenables sur Capri et le Vésuve!

Endroit de rêve comme point d'ancrage sur la côte amalfitaine. Extérieurs très soignés: très beau jardin, grande et belle piscine avec vue imprenable sur Capri. Très calme. Appartement spacieux, confortable et très propre, avec petite terrasse privée donnant sur le Vésuve. Dommage que pour le prix il n'y ait à disposition aucun aliment de base (sel, huile...). Il faudrait aussi changer le mini sofa du salon, particulièrement inconfortable, et racheter une poêle "décente"...
Hormis ces détails, une adresse très recommandable!
Superb location with superb views on the sea, Capri and Vesuvio. Beautiful garden well maintained. Appartments are nice and cosy. Good service by the local gardener and cleaning lady. Good beds.
Fantastic BBQ facilities: try the bistecca fiorentina.
Super swimming pool
Some minor points but not crucial:
- some extra pool-chairs would be a plus
- some trouble with ants
- kitchens could use some modernisation and equipment
- small shower if your a bit bigger
- dishwashers are below quality (have no added value)
- a real oven in each appartment would be a plus
- terrace furniture (eating table and banks) and terrace-floor needs renewal
- Satellite TV offer below standard but who cares if you are living outside
If those minor issues could be solved, this would be a real 5-star location

We stayed at one of the apartments with our 3 children aged 10,12 and 14. Check in was absolutely smooth, we hired a car (make sure it is a small one) at Naples airport, we had a GPS but even if you don't the instructions provided by the owners were easy to follow. We arrived on a Saturday night and were met in town by a smiling Chris who showed us the way to the apartment. We arrived to see the beautiful sunset, (just as you see in the photographs for the apartment). Chris helped us unload, showed us around the apartment and its gardens and pool (there are even laundry facilities). We then followed him back into town where he showed us a wonderful restaurant(www.ristorantelostuzzichino.it) with a great outdoor terrace.
The apartment is a fantastic base from which to explore. During our stay we drove to Sorrento (20 minutes) from where we took the boat to Capri. Pompeii, Amalfi and Positano are all within easy reach and if you want a beach, Marina del Cantone is only 30 minutes away.
The apartment was very clean and was even cleaned halfway through the week, the gardener/pool man was there every day. The only thing our apartment lacked was a comfortable sofa and a cheese grater, so in the scheme of things not much.
The highlight for all of us though was the wonderful pool, our children would have stayed in it every day if they could, the views over the sea to Capri, Naples and Vesuvius, were absolutely spectacular. We plan to return very soon.

We stayed for one week in casa il verde with two adults and three children. We had a very warm welcome by Pierro, who showed us around and was always there to help us, even when there was no hot water and the garage door would not open. The view is magnificient and the garden fantastic, with pool and lemon trees. There are a lot of things to do in the area, f.e. punta camponella, Sorrento, Pompei, Vesuvius etc etc. We hope to come back soon!!!
