About the property

Sea view country house with private large terrace and big garden

Escape the city bustle and experience the quiet and serenity of "Charming House" a romantic get-away with a wonderful sea view terrace ideal for couples that are looking for a romantic holiday. The two apartments have breathtaking sea views over the Amalfi Coast.

"Charming House" is a beautiful stone country house from 17th century, located in Sant'Agata sui due Golfi (390 mt above sea level), a small town between the wonderful gulfs of Napoli and Salerno, at only 15 minutes by car from the center of Sorrento.

The two apartments are set in a magnificent & historical villa, situated only 7 minutes walking distance from the village centre.

Both have their own private terrace/solarium where you can spend your days relaxing, having a glass of wine and reading.

One apartment has a barrel vault ceiling while the other has a ribbed vault ceiling, moreover the extraordinarily thick walls keep the interior pleasantly cool during the summertime.

Around the villa there is a garden with olive trees, vineyard, fruit trees & private parking. In this villa you’ll get a glimpse of what it does like to live in the Italian countryside. Its panoramic position with sea view makes it the ideal place to stay for those who enjoy nature & relax and it is possible to have wonderful walks along the charming peninsula's landscape as: Crapolla, Jeranto bay, Punta Campanella, Marina del Cantone & Recommone. You can also make daily excursions to Naples, Positano, Amalfi, Ravello, Pompei, Ercolano, Capri & Ischia. You really don't need a car here. There are frequent & cheap buses into Sorrento and Amalfi Coast. If you will come by car I will suggest you to rent a medium-small sized one as the road to reach my house is narrow (1,80 mt large in the narrowest point).Will be ok a Fiat 500 (the smaller type), Fiat Panda, Ford Ka, Citroen C1, Volkswagen UP. Free WIFI connection.

Isabella (owner) purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Isabella (owner) chose Massa Lubrense

When we bought many years ago this beautiful stone country house from 17th century it was a ruin quite like Pompei!!

It was a wonderful experience restoring the whole house where I live with my family and creating the sea view terrace where are located the two apartments.

What makes this apartment unique

'Charming House' with its panoramic position and sea view is the ideal place to stay for those who enjoy nature and relax. It's possible to have wonderful walks along the charming peninsula's landscape as: Crapolla, baia di Ieranto, cala di Mitigliano, Punta Campanella, Marina del Cantone and Recommone. You can also make daily excursions to wonderful places like: Positano, Amalfi, Ravello, Pompei, Capri and Ischia .

The villa is surrounded of olive trees, vineyard, fruit trees and you will be very welcome to pick fruit from my orchard like tomatoes, aubergines, courgettes, apricotes, peaches, plumbs, lemons,figs.

I'm very happy to share this special place with people who enjoy old world beauty, trekking and tranquility.

I hope to welcoming you soon in my house.

Ciao Isabella :)

Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I my sister and two kids had 3 weeks holiday (1-21th of October) in Charming House. Everything was great. Nice apartment with kiwi, grapes, zucchini and figs in the yard. Mrs. Izabela was very pleasant and helped us to solve all misunderstandings we had..:)

Sant Agata is quite, silent city with narrow streets. For me it was adventure to drive in such streets but I liked it so much!

I reccomend Charming House for everyone!

Thanks, Izabela!

Owner's Response: Dear Barry and Carol, thanks for your review and suggestions. You are right! In order to enjoy at best this beautiful and peaceful area it is really important to be a good driver and renting a small car or use the local buses that are cheap and on time. Ciao from Italy :) Isabella and family

We had the most wonderful stay at Charming House!

  • 5 of 5

Isabella was the most perfect host, warm, welcoming and generous, we enjoyed many freshly picked zucchini and plums from her garden! Her local knowledge and advice was really helpful to avoid the usual tourist traps. Charming House is situated in the most magical location with stunning views of the surrounding olive and lemon groves and waking up to a sea view every morning was very special. This is the ideal choice for those who want to get away from everything but is close enough to Sorrento to enjoy the bustle if you want to. Sant Agata is a lovely village with excellent bakery, restaurants and shops for your supplies. We had a car but it wasn't necessary, public transport was cheap and reliable. We would definitely like to return to see Isabella and share her beautiful home again.

Charming House.... Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Hi Isabella

Wow... What a fantastic time we enjoyed at your absolutely fabulous 'Charming House'. It was sad that you were in Sweden at the time but we hope you had a great time.

We fell in love with San't Agata. The locals, the bars and the restaurants were great. Great trips along the Amalfi Coast, Capri and Pompeii..

And you wern't kidding when you said that we needed small car.

You're pets became friends and Sharon enjoyed picking all the fruits of your garden... Delicious

Thank you

Hope to return soon

Dave and Sharon

A lovely house in a good central location for visiting all of the must see places on the peninsula.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a fantastic week here and visited many of the pretty resorts such as Sorrento, Pistano, Amalfi and the Island of Capri. We also visited Pompeii and Vesuvius. Sant Agata is a nice area with some great shops and restaurants. Isabella made us very welcome and helped with transfers to and from the airport and with booking excursions. Relaxing in the sun on the private terrace outside of the apartment was lovely. Highly recommended. We would definitely go back again.
