Exclusive Amalfi Coast seafront villa with pool – Dramatically perched on a hillside overlooking the Tyrrhenian sea and the island of Capri, Villa Siderea is a beautifully restored, fully air-conditioned villa set in verdant, terraced grounds with private swimming pool and spectacular views all around. The shops and restaurants of Massa Lubrense are only a few minutes’ walk from this exclusive villa and Sorrento’s splendid gulf is just under three miles away. Uniquely designed for outdoor living, the villa’s focal point is the large living area within the lush Mediterranean garden. This encompasses bespoke garden furniture, a professional kitchen with pizza oven and covered dining terrace, ideal for large gatherings or summer barbeques. In fact, why not take up a pizza-making class on offer here; fun is guaranteed as is the spectacular view of the sunset over the sea. At the end of a busy day you can retire to your private quarters in one of the individually appointed bedroom suites.
Villa Siderea's convenient location allows for a wide range of activities available locally, such as sightseeing, sailing across the bay towards Capri or spending a lazy beach day on the glamorous Sorrento's peninsula. In fact you have a wide choice of shingle and pebble beaches hidden among the coves and rugged cliffs. Among them are Marina della Lobra, Baia di Marciano, Baia della Conca Azzurra and Baia di Puolo, all within a radius of three miles. For some quality shopping, good food, fantastic sea views and great atmosphere both day and night Positano, Sorrento and Amalfi are an absolute must. A day trip to Pompei or Ercolano, at the foot of Mount Vesuvio, are also strongly recommended.
This is an unusual property but you are sure to love it as much as I do! Divided into well-equipped suites, everybody has their own space, but with a fabulous outdoor living area you can get together and really make the most of our southern Italian outdoor lifestyle. For the evenings when you don't want to cook, you could try the Michelin-starred Don Alfonso 1890 restaurant less than ten minutes' away at Sant'Agata sui Due Golfi; alternatively, family-run Lo Stuzzichino in the same village offers excellent cuisine in a relaxed setting - ask Mimmo for his excellent, award-winning 'cremino' dessert!

The most wonderful family holiday
We have had the most wonderful family holiday at Villa Siderea. Our expectations were exceeded in every way - the location was amazing, the villa, facilities, amenities and comfort were excellent, and above all the staff and their attitude were exceptional from Lisa the organiser, Susie the maid and Dario the driver - all so friendly and helpful.
The 'extras' we booked - the Pizza Class / the chefs who came and cooked dinner on our last night / the taxi which Lisa arranged for our trip to Pompeii and the guide she booked for our tour there / the tour of the Lemon Farm - were all spot on.
We were so lucky with the weather so the outdoor living area was a big bonus, and the children were in and out of the pool having a great time.
We filled in a questionnaire for their feedback with ticks in all the right boxes. They requested comments for improvement and the one thing we all missed was a full length mirror in each suite. We also felt an ice bucket for our evening glass of wine by the pool would be a good idea.
Regarding your directions to the villa from the airport, it would be useful to mention the 2 euros needed for the toll gate just a couple of miles from the airport, it saves time if your ready for it. The journey time was also longer than expected due to congestion in Sorrento, which apparently is quite normal.
Once again thank you for all your help, we will certainly come back to you if we are planning a similar trip.
