Location and Surrounding Area. Villa Rosemary is located a short distance from the centre of the colourful little fishing village of Massa Lubrense, on the tip of the Sorrentine peninsula, pointing out towards Capri. A delightful little village, with views across the Gulf of Naples to Vesuvius and Ischia, it’s ideal for those who want to visit the Amalfi Coast without staying in the more crowded tourist destinations. Pizzerias and restaurants line its quaint harbour and, for those who enjoy hiking, there are over 100km of marked routes nearby, winding through olive and citrus groves to the thick pine forest beyond.
Massa Lubrense’s rocky shores aren’t ideal for swimming, but there are lots of beautiful beaches nearby. Just 7 km away is Nerano, a pebbly beach with sunbeds, umbrellas and bars. Its crystal clear waters make a great place for snorkelling along the rocky seabed. Or you can take a boat trip to the magical coves and inlets that form part of the Protected Marine Area of Punta Campanella, or to the world-renowned island of Capri (just 3 km away), or along the Amalfi Coast.
The famous towns of Sorrento, Positano and Amalfi are all within easy reach of Massa Lubrense and there’s a direct train that runs from Sorrento to Pompeii.
Villa Rosemary is only 1 km to MassaLubrense 8 km from Sorrento, 20 km from Positano, 37 km from Amalfi, 33 km from Pompeii. The nearest international airport is Naples (Capodichino), 59 km away. Trains and buses run regularly from Naples to Sorrento and then there is a direct bus route from Sorrento to Massa Lubrense (EAV bus line A). There is also a ferry/hydrofoil service running many times daily from Naples to Sorrento.
The Property. The villa is distributed over several levels. From the road you enter the parking area and via a short staircase of about 40 steps access the villa. The property also has an elevator connecting all the floors of the villa with the garage below.
The outdoor swimming pool, located on one of the levels with direct access to the villa, overlooks the splendid Gulf of Sorrento.
The entrance to the villa opens onto a large and bright living room with dining area and lounge area, paved in refined Jerusalem stone. Outside there is access to a large terrace with a panoramic view and to the swimming pool below. Around the corner of the terrace is another large outdoor area with table, wood oven and barbecue area.
On the ground floor there is a fully equipped kitchen with a small wine cellar and lavatory. Off the living room there is also a small and cozy room with a comfortable sofa bed and a personal bathroom.
A short staircase leads to the upper floor where there are 3 large double bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, 2 of which open onto a terrace with spectacular views. On this same terrace is a large room dedicated to leisure time, with large, comfortable sofas and a TV with Kodi, as well as a small gym and sauna. This room leads onto a veranda, which can be closed in winter, where a fantastic outdoor hot tub for 5 people is positioned beside the entrance to a small garden with lemon trees.
The terraced garden with olive trees can also be accessed from one of the bedrooms. From here a stone staircase leads to the roof of the villa, from whose white and vast terrace you can admire a breathtaking view that of the entire Gulf of Naples.
