Appt Rose is at the top of Villa Dafne. It has compact internal accommodation but the focus (quite rightly) is on the outside. The large open terrace faces the sea with Views of Capri on your left, Ischia centre stage and Naples on the right. We spent hours watching the coming and going of everything from kayaks to cruisers and the sunsets were amazing. During the day the sun was too hot for me so I moved back into the shade of the outdoor dining area while my husband soaked up the sun. The villa is located down a steep hill and it is a steep climb down to the sea so a car is essential but this is a small price to pay for the calmness and the view. Massa Lubrensa is only a five minute drive away and there are shops, bars and restaurants there. Sorrento is a fifteen minute drive if you are looking for something bigger. We made the most of both. And the Amalfi coast is on your doorstep either by car, bus or boat. The owners of Villa Dafne live on site but maintain their distance unless you need help or advice.
This is a real gem,close enough to the village and Sorrento (1 hour from Naples Airport by car),yet very secluded.We arrived a little late yet Paola and Francessca were very kind and helpful.We will be going again,a hire car is very useful and no need to travel far for amazing scenery.

This rental is a great escape from the tourist areas of sorrento. There is good connections from sorrento and massa lubrense, busses are easily taken from Via Partenope. The pool here is absolutely magic, new, warm and in good condition. Within walking distance their are some local restaurants both at reasonable prices (180€ inc wine and beer for six people). Massa lubrense has everything that one needs regarding food and supermarkets with a good greengrocer (you may not touch the fruit though!!!) Villa Dafne has good cooking facilities however we really could have used a sharp knife... Air conditioning was well appreciated for the hot nights.
We did most of our shopping at the main supermarket in sorrento. Coming in from Sorrento we recommend you take a taxi! They are often big enough for six people and six/seven large bags - cost around 40€
The beach that is in the neighbourhood was not as inviting as perhaps one would expect, rocky and a long walk down...
