The apartment is reached through a narrow and ancient country road, approximately 250 meters long, from the large Piazza S. Francesco, where large cars parking is available and luggage porterage is included both on arrival and departure.
"This road was built centuries ago, when the only transportation was provided by one´s own feet and perhaps a mule.
The purpose of the road was to provide a short path among the fruit trees to reach the property. Hard to believe, the road has been left just the way it was, with its characteristic stone wall on the edges, except for the pavement that has been improved to let a very small car go through. While making the access to the property more difficult, this road also has assured that the area stay free of pollution and noise, and the air is fresh and clean like in few other places. Along this very same road the centre of Massa Lubrense can be reached in fifteen minutes by foot"
Notice : For those who choose to park in the Piazza S. Francesco parking is free of charge but not private, and on Friday morning there is a street market when vehicles have to be parked a little further away. Car Recommended.
