‘Carmen’ is the sixth of seven apartments within La Capanelle, an elegant development on the picturesque hills overlooking the Gulf of Naples and the Gulf of Salerno.
On arrival, you will find your parking area, reserved exclusively for guests and protected by an electric gate. Before you, the green slopes of the Mediterranean maquis stretch in all directions, alongside the organic lemon and olive groves tended to by the owners. Le Capannelle sits high on one of the natural terraces typical of the Amalfi Coast, guaranteeing wonderful views.
The well-kept shared gardens boast a wonderful 10m x 5m swimming pool (open from 15th May to 15th October), surrounded by a solarium terrace. Beautiful potted plants rest alongside ample sun loungers and parasols, giving the ideal place to soak up the sunshine, whilst enjoying the panoramic views from the Amalfi Coast to the Gulf of Salerno. On an adjacent raised terrace, you can relax on the comfortable wicker sofas beneath the shade of a pergola, whilst savouring the unforgettable sunsets over the blue seas of the Bay of Nerano. On hot summer days, the small wood and olive grove offer an ideal retreat when you wish to cool down.
Le Capannelle is within easy walking distance of good restaurants and grocery stores in the charming town of Sant'Agata sui Due Golfi. From there it is a short drive, or bus ride, to the many attractions of Sorrento, and beyond on the Amalfi Coast.

La Capnnelle is an awesome place to spend time. Very modern a great atmosphere and unbelievable sunsets. A very short walk to town for all your needs. Very central to any short travels you may want to make to Sorrento, Positano or Capri. The apartment was very comfortable for 5 traveling adults.
“Centrally placed, great outlook, great service from managing age”

We arrived late to meet our agents, but Piero and Chris could not have been more accommodating and helpful. The apartment was just lovely, with an out look over the bay. The village was only 500 metres away, and the locals were very friendly and helpful. It was just a lovely place to stay. The apartment was well equipped for home cooking, clean and modern. A wonderful stay. 10 out of 10.

We arrivbe by car at this nice appartement. We drove in about 4 hours from Rome to Massa Lubrense, if you have navigationsystem in your it could give problems if you stay on the main road you will get there. The appartement is laying on a hill with its own road. When you sit on the terrace you see 2 gulfes. Inside is a nice appartement.
With 2 separate bedrooms and living with kitchen. In the garden was the swimmingpool. Stores in the village down were easy to reach on foot. When you like to see nice villages and cities you can easily go by car also visit a beachclub is possible, Napels is about an hour drive.

Hosts were friendly and available. Suite was clean and as described. Unfortunately the pool was not available. A map showing the specific location of the accomodation would have been helpful rather than relying on a phone call. The view was delightful.

We liked the appartemnet very much, the view, beds were very good! Nice village. Very warm welcome and helpful staff.
But we didn't like the ants at the balcony.
Also we would like te advise you to clean the swimming thoroughly. The water was not clean at the end of the week. It was warm and a lot of kids in the pool, very nice, but the water was not clear anymore.
