Casale La Torre is in a special spot; overlooking the islands of Capri, Ischia, Procida and the Gulf of Naples, and surrounded by sun-drenched gardens, this serene place will stay in your heart forever.
Casale La Torre is located in Marciano, a delightful little village just 2 km from Massa Lubrense, in a quiet spot that enjoys the sun all day, and along a stretch of coast that is part of the Marine Protected Area of Punta Campanella, renowned for its beautiful landscape and fascinating history.
The villa is next to a little side road, closed to traffic, and faces the sea and its enchanting sunsets. Guests staying at Casale la Torre will need a car during their stay; access to the house is along a country road with reserved parking for three to four cars.
As you stroll up a short flight of wide stone steps towards the farmhouse, you can feel yourself returning to a simpler time, far from the challenges of modern life.
The farmhouse sits on two terraced levels of land, amidst citrus and olive groves. You arrive on the lower level, where exquisite gardens spread before you. The lawned grounds are extensive, with flowers spilling from pots and the gnarled trunks of trees standing beside the farmhouse as they have for decades.
The property has been beautifully restored and is decorated in a gorgeous palate of Mediterranean colours, while outside is a riot of greenery, shrubs, olive trees and rose bushes. The furnishings are carefully chosen and mirror the beauty of the gardens.
The living space
Each apartment has its own comfortable living space, dining area and well-equipped kitchen; Il Verde has one double bedroom, one twin, one single, and a bathroom; Corallo has one double and one twin bedroom, plus a bathroom; Primula has one double and one twin bedroom, plus a bathroom.
The kitchen, dining area and cosy sofas are in an open-plan space in one apartment so that you can be together while you cook. The other two apartments have kitchen-diners and lovely sun rooms where you can relax and watch TV.
The bedrooms and bathrooms
Each of the bedrooms is full of character, spacious, clean and tidy. The beds are comfortable, there is plenty of storage space and the views from the windows, whether of the garden or of the sea, are enchanting.
The bathrooms have clean, modern fittings with showers and bidets.
Before you, a small promontory reaches out towards the sea, home to a generous swimming pool (11m x 5m) and a sun room with ample recliners and parasols. The enviable panoramic views sweep in almost a full circle across the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida and the Gulf of Naples.
Primula has own terrace overlooking Capri and the sea. It’s on a higher level of the garden, while Corallo and Verde are adjacent, on the garden’s main level.
A sizable shaded patio area offers the perfect place for a convivial al fresco dinner during the warm summer evenings, with a wood-burning oven and traditional circular barbeque ingeniously crafted from an old olive press.
The lush gardens are a haven of peace and there are lots of places to sit and admire the view; don’t miss the breathtaking sunsets over Capri.
The local area
The rugged hills above Massa Lubrense offer amazing views of this unspoilt peninsula at every turn and are criss-crossed with paths and tracks through lemon and olive groves, making this fantastic walking country. The house is also ideally situated for guests wishing to go trekking in the Sorrento Peninsula, with hiking routes available along a number of paths: to the Deserto (456 m), Mount S. Costanzo (497 m), from where there are breathtaking views; from Massa Lubrense to Termini (over 6 km of solitary road surrounded by Mediterranean maquis shrubland) and the bay of Ieranto in the heart of the marine-protected area of Punta Campanella.
The town of Massa Lubrense – known as the ‘Land of the Sirens’ – is 2 km away on the coast, with scenic, pastel-painted houses perched on the cliffs and boats in the small harbour. The town offers plenty of shopping, eateries and bars, as well as interesting cathedrals and other attractions.
Sorrento is a windy 9 km drive away with its narrow, cobbled streets, splendid piazzas and beautiful views over the water to Naples and Mountt Vesuvius.
Whether you visit with family or friends, and whether you want to sit back and relax or spend time exploring this most amazing Sorrentine peninsula, Casale La Torre will give you the holiday of your dreams.
