Super lovely place! The photos don't do it justice

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. The photos really do not do it justice at all. It was perfect for 2 people. The house has a lot of character and charm, and was homely and interesting. It wasn't just a bland apartment aimed at making money from tourists.

The house has it's own private outdoor area, as well as a shared pool area (shared with the 2 other houses). In May, we had the pool area to ourselves as there was no one else staying. This was great, but I'm sure it would also be fine if you had to share it.

The views are stunning, overlooking the sea and islands, with beautiful sunsets. We saw lizards and bats and fireflies without even leaving home!

The location fells very remote, but is actually only a 5 minute walk down a pathway to a local shop and butchers. You could easily have got all your provisions from here (and we largely did). Also Sant' Agata is very nearby too.

Massa Lubrense is beautiful. You feel really near the sea from everywhere. There are lots of walks along the coast, and little bays for swimming in. Superb wildflowers at the time of year we visited. You could also easily reach places further afield such as Pompeii. Trips to the Amalfi Coast possible too, but we think that this is a much nicer place to stay as it is quieter and less touristy (we also stayed on the Amalfi Coast, but much preferred it here).

All in all, it was an ace place to stay. We wished we had booked it for longer. It is a perfect place to relax, but also have great trips out to places. We'd definitely recommend it to others!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much, dear guest, I'm very happy about this report principally because it was spontaneous( I didn't ask for it, as often - I forget quite everytime to ask for it...-) and also for putting in evidence the love and the attention that I feel for my houses , the sense of beauty and pleasure that I try to transmit through each house. When I stay there for a weekend or in summer time, alone or with my family, my friends, often I choose to sleep alternatively in each of them to feel their different character, to check if everything it's ok and, if it's possible, to think about doing, eventually, little improvements( it's always possible some little improvement!) to make the stay of everyone, (me, my family, my friends, my guests) confortable and relaxing in a certain view of life, humbly, mine ! So, I accept every suggestion from the people staying there with grateful mind, that's the reason why I left , from the beginning, a little note book in every house where the people could write ( and read the writings from the others) its impressions about its staying there. I call this house, in particular, L'Arca thinking about a place where to put, also if for a little period, in safe itself , where it could be possible find a shelter from the invisible "deluges" that life sometimes deserves to anyone of us... the shelter it's not properly the house but the simply beauty of the particular, mediterranean, nature around, that restore and relax our minds ( I would like to build a treehouse, before or after in my life, to improve this feelings :)). I have to admit that , also if I usually live and work in Naples town and I like it( it's a wonderful town also if with many problems, indeed) I found in this place and in all that coast zone, in particular in the Massa Lubrense area , a second native-mother- land. So, thank you again, I see that the message is passed through ! and sorry for too many words and for my english too....
