Property description

On the outskirts of the Italian municipality of Massa Lubrense, approximately twenty-five kilometers southeast of Naples on the famed Sorrento Coast lies Villa Aretusa. This six-bedroom vacation home capable of accommodating up to fourteen guests is where rustic old world charm is paired with a backdrop of natural beauty of the Tyrrhenian Sea and Southern Italy. Caught between the perks of the villa and the allure of the surrounding views, guests find it hard to choose between staying on the property or venturing out.

Upon arriving at the Villa Aretusa, guests will be met by a welcome cocktail and will also receive delicious daily breakfasts. The villa will be maintained throughout guests visits with daily housekeeping. The outdoor lounge has been furnished with lounge chairs, tables, built-in benches with cushions and various lighting to make it the perfect area to relax both day and night. A delightfully designed seawater pool has been built into the natural rocks and paved with beach stones. An adjacent pool house features an outdoor shower, a kitchenette with gas stovetop, a refrigerator and a double sink.

Villa Aretusas interior has been sumptuously decorated. The kitchen successfully merges together old world decor with subtly placed modern appliances. The dining area is connected to the living room, containing parquet floors, a fireplace with antique ceramic tiles, large sea-facing windows and access to the ground floor terrace. The rooftop terrace boasts an amazing view of Capri, Ischia and Procida.

The villa possesses six comfortable and warmly decorated, air conditioned bedrooms. The master bedroom has been furnished with queen size bed, large dresser, telephone, TV and has a private en-suite bathroom and access to the first floor terrace. A pair of rooms, one with a queen bed and one with a twin, share a full bathroom. Two others rooms have both a double bed and single bed in each, and the last bedroom is equipped with a queen.

Villa Aretusa makes a perfect getaway spot for families, diverse groups and corporate retreats. The nearby town of Massa Lubrense boasts an upbeat lifestyle, delicious gastronomy and plenty of architectural wonder. Nearby beaches attract locals and international visitors by the thousands. Here is a just little slice of what the Italians call, la dolce vita, the sweet life!
