La Torre. Villa in Sorrento Peninsula. Pool, garden, marvellous sea view
Nestling in a splendid natural setting between Sorrento and Massa Lubrense, Casale la Torre is a traditional farmhouse complex in the Sorrento Peninsula, ideal for those seeking a quiet holiday away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
Casale la Torre is built on two floors, and measures around 300 m2. It is divided into three apartments that can host up to thirteen people. It has terraces with splendid views, a garden, a barbecue area and a swimming pool. Guests will have access to a reserved parking area within the grounds, which you can reach from the apartments via a convenient flight of about 15 stone steps.
The apartments offer fantastic views out across the sea and the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida, as well as the Gulf of Naples. These three brand-new apartments, surrounded by citrus and olive trees, are located in Marciano, a delightful little village just 2 Km from Massa Lubrense, with splendid views of Capri, Ischia, Procida and the Gulf of Naples.
Casale la Torre, renovated entirely in line with the architecture of traditional farmhouses, has two floors, and the 3 apartments (2 two-room apartments for 4 people each and one 3-room apartment for 5 people) have been designed and laid out in order to offer guests maximum quality and comfort. All the apartments have private outdoor areas and beautiful views of either the sea or the garden.
The area that hosts the garden and the swimming pool (11 m X 5 m, open from May to September) is undoubtedly the most attractive part of the holiday house complex, and visitors are sure to be immediately struck by the delightful views stretching out beyond the horizon. All you will see before you is the bright blue of the sea and the sky, and views of Capri, Ischia, Procida and the Gulf of Naples.
In the large, superbly kept garden, there is a splendid patio equipped with a large, characteristic barbecue, ideal for organising a convivial dinner out in the open in the warm summer evenings.
In this area you will find a wood-burning oven and a professionally equipped kitchen in which typical local dishes can be prepared with the genuine DOC-certified products of the Sorrento Peninsula. The staff of Casale la Torre, who will be pleased to organise lunches and dinners on request, share the philosophy of the owners, i.e. to create dishes able to bring out the very best in the wealth of delicious raw materials offered by the Sorrento Peninsula, by preparing typical traditional local recipes.
Located mid-way between the gulfs of Naples and Salerno, 9 km from Sorrento and 15 km from Positano, Casale la Torre lies at the heart of Massa Lubrense, renowned for its world-famous restaurants and delightful coastline. About 100 metres from the apartments, on the main road, you will find the stop for SITA bus services to Sorrento and Sant’Agata sui due Golfi. The SITA bus network links all the towns along the coast, offering convenient access to the archaeological sites of Pompeii, Ercolano and Paestum, as well as the Royal Palace of Caserta.
Casale la Torre is situated in a quiet spot that enjoys the sun all day, along a stretch of coast that is part of the Marine Protected Area of Punta Campanella, renowned for its beautiful landscape and the traces of its ancient history.
The villa is next to a little side road, closed to traffic, and faces the sea, where enchanting sunsets can be admired. Guests staying at Casale la Torre will need a car during their stay. Access to the house is along a country road.
The house is also ideally situated for guests wishing to go trekking in the Sorrento Peninsula, with hiking routes available along a number of paths: to the Deserto (456 m), Mount S. Costanzo (497 m), from where there are breathtaking views, from Massa Lubrense to Termini (over 6 km of solitary road surrounded by Mediterranean maquis) and the bay of Ieranto in the heart of the Marine Protected Area of Punta Campanella.
The tasteful furnishings and the large swimming pool with its views right over the island of Capri make Casale la Torre the ideal place for an exclusive, restful stay.
