Why Carlo Mezzetti chose Massa Lubrense
The villa offers an enchanting view of the Gulfs of Naples and Massa Lubrense (harbor of Marina della Lobra) and olive trees, lemon groves, terraces and fields surround it. It is full of very colorful and scented plants and flowers. The villa is subdivided into two separate units: the main house and the Saracen tower. The Villa is located on the coast of Sorrento: one of the most beautiful land that managed to remain intact over time. It is also often referred to as the "Gentile" (the nice one) for its lovely climate, the goodness of its towns and the hospitality of its people. The Saracen towers are amongst the most interesting and significant historical and artistic buildings of the area. They are symbolic of the defense system of the coastal areas of Sorrento because they safeguarded the shores from the attacks of the Turks. This area is blessed by the sun and it is always fully appreciated by tourists and travelers; a favorite destination where one can admire one of the most beautiful areas of Italy. It is full of wine and food and it has a fabulous seascape. The villa is located in a well-served area; full of natural and historical wonders that can be visited thanks to the trips and excursions that can be organized on foot or by boat. The ancient fishermen's village, in the bays of Nerano, Recommone and Jeranto, can be visited on board of the typical Sorrento boats. The reserves of the Galli Island, Positano and many others are only but a few of the wonderful surprises that await you in the surrounding areas of the Villa.

Our family of 5 have a great vacation, enhanced by staying at this lovely Villa. Lucio (manager) was fantastic and seemed to always be available.
Fantastic villa in perfect setting
Rented this beautiful villa it was better than the online pictures. So clean. Carlo kept us up to date and answered questions promptly even got my transfers sorted. A great start and it just got better, 10 of us stayed as it was my husband's birthday Lucio is fantastic and so attentive his family catered for the birthday meal 17 of us in total as relatives from Naples came, a beautiful meal and birthday cake his daughter Lucia made. Also highly recommend the pizza party as well best pizza we've ever eaten!!. The villa is a short walk to shops and everything you need. We took the bus to Sorrento a great place to visit. Lucio was waiting on our arrival if you need anything he is always there to help. We can't thank him, Anna, Lucia and Manuel enough. We will be back.
Gorgeous grounds, beautiful views
Lovely but older villa. It is very unique and has beautiful views. The owner and manager were very easy to work with. The property is lovely outside. Inside it is a large old villa with bathrooms that have most recently been updated. It is a good jumping off point for Positano, Capri and Sorrento which we visited and loved.
There were a few things to consider that could have made the stay better. The mattresses are not very comfortable, the AC units need to be serviced (the one in the main house leaked and basically stopped working which was fine bc we didn’t spend much time there) and there are a lot of ants! I found ants in our bed several nights which was disconcerting and awoke to find one on my face. I’m sure this is just because the house is older.
The guests were only 2 persons and chose to sleep in the Saracen tower that is not old but ancient because built in 1500 but recently completely renewed together with the main Villa, as you can see in the pictures. The mattress and the bed in the tower is brand new and has a memory foam to make it particularly comfortable and nobody else ever complained about it.
We found food all over in the bedroom of the tower and that is very likely the reason for the ants.
We recommended the guests to advise Mr. Lucio, who is in charge of the Villa, if they have any problem but they did not tell anything about the problem they say they had with the air conditioner. So how could we help ?
Again, as you can see in all the other reviews, we are always very attentive to make sure that everything works and to promptly solve any problem, as long as the guests let us know about it.
Great location in Massa Lubrense
We all enjoyed our stay at the villa. It was perfect to visit the area.
Wonderful Family Holiday
There were 5 adults and 5 children in our group and this beautiful villa was more than large enough to accommodate us. The villa itself is wonderful, spacious and very well equipped. Lucio was fantastic and so accommodating, we can recommend the pizza party, fabulous food and his family even made a cake for my 6 year old sons birthday! Masa Lubrense has some lovely local restaurants and shops, we were on holiday for my brothers wedding in sorrento which is only about 10 minutes away. We were glad we didn’t hire a car, the public transport was great and children travelled for free. Cannot recommend the villa enough we really enjoyed our stay here.
Perfect location for exploring the Amalfi Coast! The home is lovely and easily accommodates 10.(even more) Massa Lubrense is a charming town with very friendly locals. The caretaker Lucio was very attentive to details and responded any time we called. Would absolutely stay here again!!
