During the low Season it can be rented as two villas: one with 4 bedrooms and one with 2 bedrooms. The adjoining Villa Mare Sleeps 6 and Apartment Stella Sleeps 2 + 1; with advance planning this complex can host up to 21 people. Location is prime.
Location: This villa is 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. Breathtaking Mediterranean views encompass a prized perspective on the fabled Isle of Capri. 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. A grounds man puts out lounge chairs and umbrellas. There are some sea walls (see photos) 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 and it can pick you up here. The villa is built within a lemon grove, a principal local crop, preserving a number of the trees.
The exterior is maintained meticulously and each weekday a housekeeper tends to the grounds and provides an hour an a half of housekeeping. Villa Sole is two floors above the street level where you may park up to four cars. The villa has two parts, a three bedroom main villa and a two bedroom apartment that is totally separate in terms of entrances. In low season, they can be rented separately, but in the mid and high season they come together.
There are two large terraces around the main villa. The main terrace wraps around the living room, dining area, and pool and it has a long railing overlooking the sea. Beyond you see the edge of the parking below and just beyond is the sea. Toward the left the Isle of Capri fill the horizon and you can watch boats and the ferries that connect all the seaside towns. The second terrace flows around the bedrooms in the upper level and the tower.
The interior of the four bedroom main villa is large, 2700 square feet. The living room is spacious, seats up to about ten people if you bring in the straight back chairs in the entry. On the same level is a large kitchen, a dining room, and behind the kitchen, an outdoor, covered dining area within a colonnaded cloister. The furniture is upholstered in clouds of white and together with the thick white walls and abundant windows it is visually cool while breezes waft through. You can close up and turn on air conditioning in the living room. Highlights of local antiques, artisan work and a sea shell collection. On the ground floor is a bedroom with a queen sized bed and a bedroom with convertible twin beds that can be made up separately or together. There is a bathroom with tub across the hall from the bedroom. The bedroom has air conditioning. There are two, air conditioned bedrooms on the second floor. The master bedroom has a long modular sofa that fits into the curve of the turret. A rollaway bed can be placed in this room. The master bedroom has a door onto the terrace. The pretty, pink ensuite bath has a tub with handheld shower head that can mount on the wall. The second bedroom has a single bed and a bath with a shower. Adjoining the main part of the Villa is the "dependence," an apartment that is completely standalone but dependent on the main villa for a pool and must be rented together with the main villa during mid and high seasons.
The smaller apartment of 750 square feet has a large living and dining room with a hearth. The living room in white with a buttery ochre tiled floor has a sofa bed for two. There is a small, complete kitchen. All on the same level, the bedrooms have air conditioning. One has separable twin beds, and a bathroom with tub. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed and a bathroom with shower....Read more
