About the property

3 Bedroom to sleep 6 beautifully situated between the Sorrentina Peninsula.

Villa il carrubo is an elegant country residence immersed amongst the hills of Massa Lubrense. It is beautifully situated between the Gulf of Salerno and the Gulf of Naples with a wonderful view over a suggestive landscape and the islands of li Galli.

This charming property is a few kilometers from Sorrento and from the nice village of Marina di Cantone. The Villa provides everything to ensure a relaxing stay. The Villa has a private infinity pool, solarium, terrace with a grape- covered pergola, a wide garden and car parking. Nearby the parking area there is a furnished laundry

The 3 rooms are finely furnished and they feature a private balcony, air-conditioning, satellite TV, telephone, ideally located amongst olive trees, lemon trees and grape vines, the swimming pool provides a gorgeous view over the sea and the Sorrentina Peninsula. The guests in Villa il carrubo can experience beautiful sunsets and take long open air walks in this oasis of pleasure and tranquility.

Sorrento: For the ancient Romans Sorrento was a famous holiday resort. The town is the perfect mix of breathtaking scenery and magnificent terraces dropping sheerly into the sea. Sorrento also has the advantage of being in a strategic position which allows it to be the starting point of many excursions.

Pompeii : The first disaster arrived with the earthquake in 62 A.D. leaving the city of Pompei in ruins. The survivors managed to rebuild the city and they brought it back to life when a second and fatal disaster hit in 79A.D. The Romans had considered Vesuvius an extinct volcano but the eruption submerged the city of Pompeii. Magma preserved the Roman city in near perfect condition for 1900 years.

AMALFI COAST: POSITANO

The old sea-faring town is one of the oldest settlements along the Amalfi Coast. For many years it has been an ideal resort for painters and artists such as Picasso, Oelze and Carra’ and for writers such as Moravia, Buzzati, Steinbeck.

AMALFI

Not only is Amalfi known as a historic Maritime Republic but it was also famous for its papermaking industry. This precious paper is still being produced for artistic purposes and limited- edition luxury books.

You can also visit the beautiful Paper Mill Museum.

RAVELLO

Ravello is one of the jewels of the Amalfi Coast with its magnificent villas and gardens. Its magical atmosphere was felt and immortalized by both Giovanni Boccaccio in his book “Decamerone” and by William Turner in his sketches which are exhibited at the Tate Gallery in London.

All our friends are jealous!

5 stars to Villa Il Carrubo and the host, Raffaella. The villa is extremely clean and comfortable, and the outdoor spaces and view of the Bay of Salerno are spectacular. We chose this villa instead of one in Positano or Praiano due to its location on the Sorrento peninsula instead of further south on the Amalfi coast, and what a great decision that was. The traffic on the 2 lane road through the Amalfi coast is ridiculous, even pre-season, and if we had stayed further south on the coast we would have spent the entire trip sitting in traffic.

Villa Il Carrubo is just outside the inland village of Sant’Agata sui Dui Golfi which has the usual restaurants, gas stations, shops, a Conad grocery store, and several gelateria for your nightly dessert. Although Sant’ Agata is easy to find with your GPS, the road to the villa will require following Raffaella on your first drive there, after which you can set your GPS accordingly.

Villa Il Carrubo has lovely views from the two very nice upper floor bedrooms, a bath on the upper floor, plus another bed and bath on the lower floor along with a large eat-in kitchen and living room with large flat screen TV (TVs are also available in the bedrooms) and access to the several patio areas. The WiFi worked well (Raffaella likes to use the WiFi based WhatsApp instead of texting since telephone service is spotty). The bath rooms are large but European in style, and the dishwasher is wonderful to have on vacation as is the clothes washer (line dry which is amazingly quick in the sun). Most importantly, if you have any questions or concerns, Raffaella is very responsive and happy to help guests.

Another benefit to the location of Villa Il Carrubo is the relatively short drive (1.5 hr) to Pompeii and Herculaneum, shorter drive to the Sorrento dock (30 minutes) for the hydrofoil to Naples or Capri, and very short drive (15 minutes!) to the small but lovely coastal village of Marina del Cantone with multiple restaurants, a pebble beach, and boat trips to Capri, Positano and Amalfi. But of course once you see the infinity pool over the Bay of Salerno at Villa Il Carrubo, you may never want to leave your new home on the Sorrento peninsula.

Simply paradise.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Il Carrubo was just wonderful. The view is incomparable and we felt very much at home in the beautifully clean villa. The facilities at the villa are good and we had everything we needed for a great stay - the outside kitchen is a real novelty. Importantly, the WI-FI access was good and we were able to stream Netflix and Amazon to our tablets without any delays or interruptions.

Raffaella was a fantastic hostess and was keen to share her expert knowledge and tips for touring the area - and was always on hand to answer questions via WhatsApp.

The track down to the villa is narrow - we hired a Nissan Juke which was fine - but a bigger car would not be advisable. We shopped at the local CONAD in Sant'Agata sui Due Golfi which had pretty much everything we needed.

We had a wonderful, restful time at Il Carrubo and made lots of wonderful memories - the views are unforgettable. We hope to return very soon.

WOW - Amazizng Villa to say the least!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have had the best vacation of our lives here in Italy. The villa exceeded our expectations in every way. The pictures don't do it justice. I encourage you to come see for yourself - you won't be disappointed, I promise! The weather all week was gorgeous and sunny. The villa is a great central location to enjoy everything close to the area. When not relaxing at the villa, we ventured out to enjoy a chartered boat tour of Capri, a day trip to Positano, Marina del cantone, a fun evening in Sorrento, and even fit in a day trip to Rome. We found everthing we needed at the Villa. Raffaella was great and we took her advice to visit the nearby restaurant, Villa Caprille - where we were taken care of to say the least. & the sunset views were AMAZING!!! Another highlight was to have Daniel from Villa Caprille to come by on our last evening for a pizza demonstration. Our best advice is to listen when they say a small car is needed. We managed with a small & med size car for the group. Do NOT follow "navigation" or GPS to find Villa caprille upon welcome - just follow Raffaella's directions. :) *purchase the insurance when renting a car* It will be hard to top this Villa in the years to come. We enjoy traveling and have never experienced one as amazing as this. Thank you for sharing this Villa with us & we hope to be back someday! Shot anyone????

A Little Piece of Paradise.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have just returned from a week at Villa Il Carrubo. The villa itself had everything you could ask for. It was very comfortable and more than adequately equipped. It was cleaned from top to bottom half way through our stay, including changes of bed linen and towels. The location of the villa is amazing. The winding road down to it can be a bit daunting but it is worth every twist and turn! The view over the Med is trully spectacular and is something that will stay with me for a very long time. The personal service given by Raffaella is great and a visit to the nearby restaurant, Villa Caprille, is also recommended not only for the food but also for the fantastic views. The location of the villa is also a good base for trips to Pompei, Amalfi and Capri. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property and would I go back? Like a shot!

Comfortable house with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

The pictures undersell the house. The terraces are larger than shown and do offer both sun and shade. The view is beautiful. The house is practical and comfortable. We needed the heating of the house due to low night temperatures. This was easy to control. Take a compact car (width 180 cm) as it is very narrow (only one car just fits with mirrors folded to the car) and with many tight bends.
