Villino della Nonna is reached through a narrow and ancient country road,
approximately 800 meters (870 yards) long. This road was built centuries ago,
when the only transportation was provided by one's own feet and perhaps a mule.
The purpose of the road was to provide a short path among the fruit trees to
reach the property. Hard to believe, the road has been left just the way it was,
with its characteristic stone wall on the edges, except for the pavement that
has been improved to let a very small car go through. While making the access to
the property more difficult, this road also has assured that the area stay free
of pollution and noise, and the air is fresh and clean like in few other places.
Along this very same road the center of Massa Lubrense can be reached in ten
minutes by foot. Because of the small size of the road large cars can only be
parked at its beginning, while small cars can be taken to the villa. The sons of
the lady who owns the property will be happy to drive you along the country road
with their car at any time. They are young and charming boys and they will help
you in every possible way.
This property offers a relaxing stay in a quiet and cute country house,
amidst the famouse grapevines, olive and lemon trees of the coast of Sorrento.
The sea is approximately 3 km (2 miles) from the house. From Sorrento you can
board a ferry to reach Capri and the other islands of the gulf of Naples, as
well as to reach Naples, Amalfi and Positano. Positano is only 30 minutes away
by bus, along a road that shows breathtaking views at every curve. The
excavations of Pompeii can be reached in approximately one hour by car, or else
