About Luca

When my family and I came in this area for the first time, immediately we felt in love with the beauty of the landscapes and the nature surrounding the property. We bought and completed the mansion with the willing to get our little piece of paradise when escaping from the city stress. I believe we succeeded in this, and now we are very proud to have our family stone crest at the entrance of our beloved Calliope's Mansion.

Luca purchased this villa in 1992

Great Sunny Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Hello Luca,

we've just got back home, full of great memories. We were so lucky with weather. Every single trip was even better with such sunny days. Pompei is unbelievable! Also the San carlo and the Royal Palace in Naples were so impressive. your suggestion for the "Cristo Velato" was right. Amazing sculture!!

Amalfi, Sorrento, Positano good food and great wine. You are lucky guys, having all these jewels around.

What agreat Christmas holiday. Thank for your hospitality and for your fantastic villa.

We are thinking about coming back with friends during summertime.


Susan, John, Kelly, Deborah & Samantha

To other VRBO users: This property is great. bBedrooms are comfortable and spacious, the terraces and views are fantastic. Furniture are very nice. In winter and the house was well heated. Looking at the stormy sea from the sofa in front of the fireplace is unforgettable .Luca is very gentle owner and Carmine is a great chef. He cooked for us a delicious dinner. I definitively reccomend this property for rental.

Owner's Response: Hello Susanna I'd love you and your nice kids to come back in summertime. You would then discover the" other side of the moon": our pool and the boat trips. I bet John and Kelly would love scuba in the Marine Reserve. Thank you for this kind review. I appreciate it very much. Looking forward to hearing from you soon ciao and prosit Luca

Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday at Calliope. The whole family, 10 of us age 15 to 80, and the house was perfect! We loved the elegance and the feel of traditional italian style of this house. There are large areas where we could all gather, as well as several private sitting areas for quiet time. The multi-level set up of this villa is perfect for privacy when you want it, although there are many stairs. Our favorite areas to gather were the large outdoor dining area overlooking the sea, shaded by a pergola of mature wisteria vines and glycine, or the seating area on the wide stone deck area overlooking the sparkling Tyrrhenian Sea. The views are unbelievable. Sunsets are breathtaking, as are the dawns! The pool is perfect, with a comfortable private pool area for sunbathing and shaded sitting areas as well.

The villa was also a great homebase to our tours to Pompeii, Vesuvius, Positano and Amalfi. Carmine arranged a great boat trip to Capri, and on another day a van to drive us along the Amalfi coast. We had three rental cars, but didn't feel secure driving after dark on very narrow roads. We had the chance to get restaurant transportation by Carmine. It was the best idea, and all of could enjoy the great local wines and get back home safe.

From our initial email inquiries about renting this villa, the owner answered quickly and thoroughly. I would HIGHLY recommend this vacation rental!

The only bad part of this villa is having to leave!

We stayed at Calliope's Mansion in Sept 2014, there was 9 of us, celebrating a double 50th birthday, we also had another 12 people staying close by.

We had THE most amazing time. The house is fabulous, the view is more than spectacular, and our villa manager, Carmine, was truly wonderful. He couldn't have made our stay any better, he was so helpful, he arranged outings, meals, cars, pick ups, you name and Carmine did it... he even cooked for us and had the best sense of humour!! It was a fantastic week, it wasn't long enough and we hope to get back soon for much longer next time.

It was a sensational holiday, the house is very comfortable, lots of places to entertain, dance, swim and enjoy, plus a few little tucked away places for a bit of privacy. You feel like you are staying with friends, it is very homey, with a great kitchen that has everything you need to entertain. Do yourself a favour and book a holiday here, you will not be disappointed.

A Beautiful Jewel!

Ciao Luca! Thank you for sharing your amazing villa with us. Everything was perfect- and Carmine was a blessing. He took great care of us, and helped to make our adventure all the better. Beautiful, beautiful- I am already missing waking up with the Aegean out my balcony. You truly have a gem!

To potential renters, use Google coordinates to property, they bring you right to door. This property is great for large groups, plenty of space and spectacular views in every direction.

Wonderful views/ wonderful memories

  • 5 of 5

The propert is very well equipped and the views everywhere are stunning. Carmine is a true asset to the home. His ability to arrange for side trips and our trip to Ariano Irpeno,the village of our family roots really stood out.

We also opted for an evening in with locals providing a wonderful meal for us

Probably the biggest surprise for us was the daily housekeeping service. Totally unexpected but a wonderful treat.

It takes bravery or Italian heritage to access the one lane road to get to the villa, but well worth the nail biting ride!

Keeping my promise

  • 5 of 5

Dear Maria

thanks for your Christmas card. We all appreciated it very much. You are right, I promised to write a review on your rental property, and I am happy to keep this promise, here it is.

John and I rented Calliope’s Mansion on June 2013 to celebrate our 40 year of marriage with our sons and their families. A party of 12 people. The idea was to bring our whole family back to our roots in Italy and make a celebrationin Sorrento.

The villa is very charming. It has so many beautiful terraces and viewpoints. My favourite was the breakfast terrace. I remember how much I loved to eat Cornetti and "pasticcini amareni", while looking to the luxurious yachts arriving down to Nerano Bay.

Bedrooms are beautiful and comfortable. John and I selected the queen sized suite with nice balcony facing south, and left the others to the rest of our family. We liked so much to look to the sea laying in the bed. All other rooms are very nice, wide and with comfortable beds. The bathrooms are nice but not so big.

Living and dining rooms are beautiful and show the typical taste of italian style. The kitchen is also very Italian: well equipped and furnished with elegant dishes and ancient silverware.

The pool area is above any expectation. Beautiful, equipped with bar and fridge and immersed in the olive trees. All this right in front of the sea. We loved to be there at any hour of the day and also to prepare food at the kitchenette and lunch at the pool table.

Maria and Luca were of great help both in arranging all details before and during our stay. Their suggestions were always valuable and appropriate. They suggested to rent a Gozzo boat with sailor to go Capri and Positano, instead of hydrofoil. This was really a plus for our vacation.

We all enjoyed very much our time at Calliope’s mansion and I can definitively recommend Maria and her property for a great stay in Italy.

Angela & John
