What first catches our eye when entering Pina’s and Luigi’s domain a bit outside of Massa Lubrense is the large number of nicely arranged works of art adorned with colorful tiles, which we see sparkling from among the gnarled olive and carob trees. Pina is an artist and has set up a small studio here, at her home.
What really takes our breath away, however, is the panorama which opens up before us from the family’s rambling premises. Naples’ sea of houses lies shimmering in the distance, flanked by the distinctive silhouette of impressive Mount Vesuvius.
Pictures of sunny summer holidays are in our mind’s eye when we finally step onto the lovely terraces of the two holiday apartments Casa Olivo and Casa Carrubo. The apartments are located apart from where Pina and Luigi, the owners, live and they offer a fantastic view of the sea and the Sorrentine peninsula, too.
From the road, a footpath lined by dry stone walls runs up to the separate entrances of the two holiday apartments, which lie next to each other. Casa Olivo, the smaller of the two comfortable apartments, accommodates up to 4 persons.
The apartment covers two floors. The ground floor includes the living room with picture windows, the eat-in kitchen and a bathroom with shower, WC and bidet. The living area is furnished with a sofa bed for two, Smart-TV, Sat-TV and air conditioning.
The open kitchen with dining area, from here you climb the stairs to the upper floor, is equipped with a gas stove, a small electric oven as well as a refrigerator with freezer compartment.
An open sleeping gallery with double bed, an extra bathroom and a gorgeous view of the fishing village of Marina della Lobra only 600 m off are found on the upper floor of Casa Olivo. From there, you also access the furnished sea view terrace of the apartment. The bathroom on this floor is equipped with shower, WC and bidet, too. Casa Olivo includes an outdoor shower.
Casa Carrubo with two double bedrooms is the larger of the two holiday apartments and accommodates 5 persons. Via a lovely, furnished sea view terrace you enter the apartment and find yourself in the living-dining room with dining furniture, sofa bed for one person, Smart-TV, Sat-TV and access of a small sea view balcony.
To one side of the living room lies the small open kitchen. The kitchenette is equipped with gas stove, small oven, microwave and refrigerator with freezer compartment.
To the other side lie the two bedrooms, one of which can be turned into a twin bedroom. Both of the rooms offer access of the outdoor area, one opening onto the small sea view balcony and the other one onto the sea view terrace, via which you enter the apartment.
Each bedroom has an en suite bathroom. Both bathrooms are equipped with shower and WC, one includes a bidet. Casa Carrubo is, furthermore, furnished with outdoor shower, grill as well as washing machine.
Both holiday apartments are suitable for a stay during low season. Casa Olivo has air conditioning with heating system, Casa Carrubo has gas heating, but no air conditioning. WiFi can be used in both apartments.
Parking is available along the road ca. 150 m above the holiday apartments.
Casa Olivo and Casa Carrubo are ca. 1,5 km from the center of Massa Lubrense, where you find bars and restaurants as well as various shopping facilities. As the nearest bus stop is also found in the center, you will need a car if you stay at Casa Sorrentina.
Sorrento with its numerous sights, its lovely small alleys and its harbor, from where the Isle of Capri is easy to reach, is ca. 7 km off. Sorrento is also the final destination of the so-called Circumvesuviana, a train running between the Sorrentine Peninsula, ancient Pompeii and Herculaneum and the metropolis of Naples.
The pleasures of bathing await you at the beaches of Marina della Lobra (ca. 600 m), the village which is always within your view from the apartments and which can be reached by following an idyllic foot path, and of Marina di Puolo (ca. 4 km). The latter is partly sand, partly pebble; at the former, however, there are only rocky sections.
Advice: We indicated the street of the holiday apartments because the house is not indicated on Google Maps.
