Casa Teresa is a graceful studio apartment of approximately 30 square meters (320 square feet) which sleeps two persons. It is located at the ground floor of a country villa. It has an independent access through a large patio covered by a pergola. The patio is equipped with table and chairs to relax and dine outdoors. The studio is furnished with a bed divan that sleeps two, table and chairs, a closet and a kitchenette. The kitchenette is equipped with a 4-burner cooker, hood fan, refrigerator and washing machine. The bathroom has a shower.
Casa Teresa is part of a charming villa. It is located in the countryside, at approximately 3 km (1.8 miles) from Sorrento and from the sea, and at 2 km (1.2 miles) from Massa Lubrense. It is surrounded by trees, and from the patio you can see the blue of the sea and the profile of the island of Capri framed by the green of the foliage of olives trees and lemon trees.
The patio at the entrance of the studio is shaded by a pergola, which is supported by tall and rustic wood poles - a characteristic of Sorrento country houses. The rooms are new and well kept. The furnishing is simple, pleasant and comfortable.
At the side and above Casa Teresa there are two other apartments. Each of them has independent spaces. The owner, a nice lady who is always glad to help to her guests and who is very much respectful of their privacy, lives upstairs.
Casa Teresa 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.
Staying at Casa Teresa you will enjoy a quiet and graceful vacation in a country house, amidst the green and thriving growth of grapevine, olive trees and lemon trees of the coast of Sorrento.
From Sorrento you will be able to board a ferry to Capri, as well as to the other islands of the gulf of Naples, to Naples itself, Amalfi and Positano.
You will also be able to easily reach the coast of Amalfi by car or bus.
To reach Positano, for instance, it only takes half an hour along a road that shows breathtaking views of one of the world's most beautiful landscapes at every curve.
