What we like about this property

This striking luxury villa in Italy is located in a private park, with direct access to the sea. Just a few minutes from the village of Massa Lubrense, and 6km from Sorrento, it’s really well located to make the most of the region around it. It also has a guest house and a stunning swimming pool, with views across the Gulf of Naples to Capri.

Description

If you’re looking for a luxury villa in Italy, this is a great find. Designed by Italian architect Michele Capobianco in 1964, it is not only perfect for lovers of design, but it is also fully equipped with every amenity and well located within easy reach of Sorrento, Capri, Pompeii and Napoli.

An architecturally-designed, two-story villa, it is perched on a hillside overlooking the sea and the island of Capri. Interiors feature high ceilings and beautiful tiled floors, with contemporary furnishings and art – from large abstract paintings to imposing sculptures dotted around the property. It’s also very spacious, with enough room to sleep up to 10 guests. The first floor has one bedroom with a queen, and one with two twins. Follow the cool spiral staircase, and there’s a second floor with a bedroom-studio and two further queen beds. A separate guest house has a family room with another queen. There are five bathrooms in total, and the kitchen is fully equipped.

Surrounded in parkland, the villa has terraces at ground level and on the rooftop, and a lovely stone-lined pool hangs on the edge of the garden, overlooking the sea. Steps lead straight down to the beach. 

As a location for whiling away the days in the sunshine, reading, swimming and sipping cocktails, this would be very hard to beat.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Air conditioning, laundry, state-of-the-art audio-visual services, fireplace, barbecue, and pool table. A welcome kit includes coffee, tea, milk, rusk, jam and sugar. At extra cost, private cooking lessons, extra changes of linen, pick-up from the airport or train station and heating can be provided. Parking for two cars is available. The pool is open from May til mid-September, but can be opened on request for an additional charge.

AROUND

A car is recommended to make the most of the surrounding region – and there’s a lot to see. If you can tear yourself away from the pool, plan plenty of day trips. The villa is 6km from Sorrento (Gio Ponti and Hotel Parco dei Principi), 14km from Positano (Da Adolfo Beach and Baia di Laurito), 23km from the beautiful old town of Amalfi, and 23km from the historic ruins of Pompeii. Don’t forget to visit Capri (10km away), the Fontelina Beach Club, and Casa Malaparte, a stunning example of contemporary architecture sitting on a cliff above the Gulf of Salerno, featured in Jean-Luc Godard’s 1963 film, Contempt (Le Mépris). Napoli is 32 km away, and must-sees include the Museo Madre and Nitsch Museum.

    Lovely 4 nights in Sorrento – fantastic views, great space, very peaceful and secure. Maria Luisa also cooked for us 3 of 4 nights which made things very easy. We’d recommend this lovely villa.

    The host greeted us in a welcoming way. The place had everything. Our family of 8 had lots of room. The house is very clean. The open terrace on the top floor is where we spent most of our time with unbelievable spectacular panoramic views. We enjoyed their open kitchen that was fully equipped. Our kids enjoyed the swimming pool day and night. The private access to the ocean was such a treat for all of us. Massa Lubrense is a quaint town close by that provides all needed necessities. Marie Luisa and her family cooked us an amazing birthday dinner! We would highly recommend this property.

    Realmente una casa Espectacular!!! Excelente vista de Capri ,Napoli de casi todos los sitios de la casa,pero desde la habitacion en el piso superior y la terraza para ver el atardecer ameritan el costo del alquiler. Lo unico para avisar a los proximos visitantes es que la señal telefonica y de internet no es contaste. Es ideal para relajarse y disfrutar del paisaje, de la casa y sus comodidades. Lugar maravilloso y volveremos pero por mas tiempo!!! Hasta la Proxima!!!

    We absolutely loved Kristine’s place. It was perfect for myself and my family. I love the fact that the villa is very close to a ‘local’ town, which has a great supermarket, a fresh fish shop, and a few fresh veg stores. Either side, both of the more touristy cites of Sorrento and Positano were mobbed, with it being August, but being in the middle, meant we had the best of both worlds. Some days we lay by the pool, or on the roof terrace (few from the top of the villa is astounding, and thats coming from someone who has travelled a lot) and cooked, sometimes we braved the tourist trail. Car hire is a must. I can fully recommend that you have Maria Luisa cook for you, as we did on our first and last nights in the villa. Her cooking is wonderful and being greeted after a day of travel with wine and a home cooked meal was just lovely. Kristine was kind enough to organize for us to take a small private boat from Massa Lubrense harbor, around Capri for the day. It’s definitely the way to see and visit Capri in high season, to avoid the crowds, and enjoy the beautiful ocean there on a flexible basis. The only couple of things I would say, is that the villa is a beautiful old building, with all the quirks that come with such a thing. The wifi can be up and down, the oven can be slightly temperamental, water is not always boiling in the shower. You expect those things from a very old house, but if you are a stickler about such things, its something to note. Final thing is, the villa sits down a lane that leads to the ocean (climb down the steps, as it is beautiful) and can’t be seen easily from the road. It makes it somewhat hard to find initially. If you take the road from Massa, for about 1km, there is a small lane on the right, with a red barrier and a big red gate just down from the road. The villa is inside that complex. Thank you Kristine, we will return.

    The Sorrento Villa served as a spectacular home base for our summer week getting to know the Sorrentine Peninsula and the Amalfi Coast. For our group of 8, the pool and private beach were a dream come true, as was the view from the roof terrace. Kristine made things easy for us by connecting us with a driver and a housekeeper/cook who made our arrival and procurement of groceries (and wine) easy. Kristine even provided a delicious torta caprese for the birthday we were celebrating. We are so pleased to have stayed here and would love to do so again.

    We had an amazing week at kristines Villa in Massa! We we welcomed by Maria Louisa with wine and olives and got a tour of the villa! It was exactly as the pictures portrayed it. We enjoyed the pool and had the chef , Maria Louisa,cooked us 2 fresh delicious meals. They were the best meals we had our entire stay. I do suggest you have a car because it is a little out of the way. But you can’t beat the magnificent views and the interesting artwork throughout. We would definitely come back, it was the trip of a lifetime!!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful villa. Wonderful views and very tastefully decorated. The hosts were wonderful and very helpful. Highly recommend the cooking by Maria Louisa. We really hope we can return again.

    This was a lovely villa to stay in. Excellent views and wonderful accommodation. Perfect for a weekend away or longer. Would highly recommend.

    A very architecturally unique villa with beautiful views and tons of outdoor space. It’s removed from town, which makes for a very peaceful stay — but recommend having a car if you want to do more than relax at the villa. My parents and I stayed for two nights which wasn’t enough! Maria Luisa cooked dinner one night which was great — highly recommended. If you are looking for a peaceful getaway, this is a good bet. One tip: bring bug spray for mosquitoes!

    We had a really pleasant stay at Kristine’s house on the Amalfi coast. Communication went smoothly and the house is really amazing. This place is really special and great hosts, absolutely recommended! Thanks

    C’était une belle semaine passée à Massa dans cette villa d’architecte captivante à bien des égards. Merci pour ces souvenirs de couchés de soleil, de cuisine préparée par Christina, de cette étonnante collection et cette piscine !

    The villa was wonderful; tastefully decorated. It was a dream. But above all, the host was very kind and always available. The area had a private atmosphere. The sea / beach which is within walking distance is almost empty with a few people. We want to go again!

    The view from this house is magical and even better than the pictures. The house has lots of space and interesting art and books to ponder. The location is good if you want to get away from the touristy crowds of Sorrento. You’ll need a car.
