The villa is located in the Massa Lubrense coast facing the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida and the gulf of Napoli. It is very near the sea (only 100 steps…) and it occupies one of the most astonishing corners of the coast.
The typical and characteristic panorama you can enjoy both from the ample terraces and from the big main windows is of the Vesuvius on the right, Capri and the “faraglioni” on the left and Ischia in front.
From the month of May to mid October the sun sets behind the Ischia island, showing an unforgettable spectacle of changing colours.
The private area surrounding the villa, some 10.000 sqm wide, is characterised by olive trees on the hill side and by pine tree on the sea side. It constitutes a perfect “filter” from the surrounding constructions so the villa enjoys a perfectly isolated atmosphere even in the busiest season.
The villa is built in 4 levels and it is divided into two estates. The one being described here is the biggest and it occupies the lowest two levels and part of the third level. The other estate is not subject of this description and might be occupied by the owner or other tenants.
The villa is characterised by very ample terraces enjoying the breathtaking panorama.
The external spaces are characterised by a large garden organised with different specific and thematic corners. Form the long entranceprivate avenue (where is it possible to park up to 3 cars), you can see the “pine terrace”, and the pool over the sea.
On the other side of the villa, facing the medioeval castle near the villa, there’s a second garden area (“pizza terrace”) with a pizza wood fed oven and a rustic wood fed cooking place and barbecue. On demand, the owner can arrange for hand made pizza production and pizza preparing courses.
Near the swimming pool there’s a terrace just above the sea, famous for the sun-set cocktails arrangements.
The swimming pool, used from June to October, is filled with seawater; it is some 10 m x 6 m large, and its depth varies from 1,5 to 3,5 m. It is used together with the occupants of the other estate of the property. The terraces around the pool, directly imposing on the sea, require care for children, since no fences are built. Bathing in the swimming pool is an unique experience and you may have the impression of being suspended over the sea.
Only 100 steps divide you from the incredible independent sea access of the villa. If you are an experienced swimmer (the open sea may be sometimes rough in the area), you can swim to two grottos some 50 m far, one of which has a swim through 10 m tunnel arriving in an internal pool from which you see the changing violet colours of the sea. the second grotto, directly below the medioveal castle, has a high arch: where you can swim through without any difficulty.
The entrance level (level 2) is entirely occupied by the main living room (some 60 sqm), the dining room a small toilet and the kitchen.
The big living room faces one of the big terraces with two large french windows; the two big windows at corners of the room are pointed one towards Capri and the faraglioni and the second towards the Vesuvius.
The room has a big perfectly working fireplace, which, in cooler evenings, becomes the centre of the living space. The living room is equipped with an HIFI system with a CD player and a record player set, and there’s an ample collection of classical records. In the corner of the room there’s a large screen TV, linked to a satellite antenna enabling to watch the major international channels, as well as the Italian TV.
