villa layout
The views along the Sorrento and Amalfi coast are particularly well-known for their clarity and brilliance and for their distinct, bright, contrasting colours, and certainly from the garden of Il Frutteto you can admire one of the most harmonious views of the Sorrentine coast and of the Gulf of Naples. The villa lies about 2 km from Massa Lubrense, a village known not only for its history, but also for its olive oil production. Il Frutteto spreads onto a large terracing with a view of the sea, full of flowers and fruit trees. The outside area is furnished with a covered, shady veranda and with a perfectly equipped open-air kitchen: with hobs, barbecue, wood-burning oven and a ceramic table from Vietri, and guests also have the exclusive use of a 3x6m pre-fabricated swimming-pool. The interior furnishings consist of valuable furniture with some antiques, all perfectly maintained and of excellent taste. The villa also has many modern comforts: dishwasher, laundry with washing-machine, telephone, TV and WIFI internet connection. The more interesting towns are all within easy reach: Sorrento is about 9 km away, Naples 60 km, Positano 10 km. In Massa Lubrense or in the village of S. Agata dei Due Golfi you will find general food shops, banks and post offices. The beach of Marina di Puolo is just 3 km away and can be reached in ten minutes by car. There are many nearby restaurants where you can try the excellent local cuisine, and some of them are considered to be among the best in Italy.

"It was a really lovely villa, and in the most beautiful location. We stayed there for a family holiday - 4 adults and 5 children- and it was ideal. The accommodation was spacious and there were lots of terraces to relax on, individually or together. We particularly loved having an evening meal on the terrace looking out towards the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius, and watching the sun set in glorious colours( lots of photos there!) The villa was very well equipped and it was really nice to have someone to clean and tidy every day ( I did feel however that cleaning costs should have been part of the total rental price and not separate from it as it was not an optional extra). It was a really nice gesture to leave me a signed copy of The Naples Chef Cooks - I have done some of the recipes since we got back, and they provide a super reminder of a really special place and holiday.
Thank you - I shall certainly use Ville in Italia again, I shall certainly be visiting your website when I book our next trip to Italy.

"This is our review for Il Frutteto in Massa Lubrense.
We were a party of 6 adults. The inside of the villa was lovely and all the bedrooms were a good size and very comfortable.
When we were at the villa we spent most of our time outside. With three seating areas to choose from we were spoilt for choice. They all had amazing views.
The outside kitchen was a huge bonus.
The location of the villa was also really good because after the hustle and bustle of busy towns and tourist attractions, it was like a quiet retreat at the end of the day.
We all enjoyed our stay and Massa Lubrense is a good central point to get to lots of places on the Sorrento Peninsular.
Thank you for a great holiday.
Kind regards

"Really nice Villa. The photo's don't really do it justice as it is a really well laid out property. Fantastic outside space and everything you could need is available. The property is owned by someone who clearly likes to entertain and there are 3 tables to dine around outdoors alone. A supermarket is a few minutes drive away which is open late and geared towards locals so not overpriced at all. A car is essential but the drive to local villages is quick and easy and Sorrento is only around 25/30 minutes even in Aug traffic. The pool is above ground (common for the Amalfi coast from what i can tell) and a tiny bit too small (albeit larger than i expected) for proper swimming but was actually perfect for our kids (5 & 8) to play in and ideal for cooling off after long days out. We rent a lot of holiday villas and I would highly recommend this one.
please pass on my thanks to the owner. !!

"We had a fantastic trip in Italy and at the house
The bedroom on the first floor was great, the bedrooms on the second floor had beds that need to be revamped.
Thanks for your support during this booking

"I would like to thank you and your customer office for all your work in helping my family have the most amazing time in Italy. The villa was beautiful with amazing views. The woman who came and cooked made it so special and we wished we had had her cook even more for us.The weather was perfect (alothough I don't think you had anything to do with that)and as a family we will all cherish our time spent together in a "little slice of Heaven".I am passing along info on this villa to a few people in the states . Again I thank you both.
Barbara and Tim"

"We loved Il Frutteto. It fit all 9 of us comfortably and there were so many areas in which to relax and enjoy the view that you could get away from the others if you wanted to as well. Massa Lubrense is a good location. We were able to get to all the sites easily but you definitely need a car. I would recommend this villa to anyone looking to go to the Amalfi Coast.

"Our stay at Il Frutteto was excellent. The villa is beautiful and very well suited to touring the area. Actually it is nicer than the pictures on the Internet would indicate. Our host was very nice.

Many thanks

"We had a wonderful holiday, and were very pleased with Il Frutteto. It was spacious for 8 people, and we loved the many outdoor options for dining and relaxing. We have created a spectacular 6 inch X 4 ft. panoramic photo taken from the upper balcony which shows Capri on one end and Mount Vesuvius on the other.
Everything was great, and we would be happy to recommend it to other visitors.
I have given your name and email address to others, as I have been very pleased with your agency's service over the last two years.
All the best

"Our experience at the villa was perfect. The house has a wonderful feel to it, simpatico...I don't know if that is the right word but a really nice energy. It was also spotless, something very important to our family which made the stay all the more comfortable. The woman who came every day to take care of the place was lovely and the dinner that was prepared one night for us was the best meal we had - home cooking is
so much better than any restaurant..

Everything was perfect. Hope to someday rent a villa in Tuscany....maybe you can really help me with that one....since you live in the area. Take care

"Charlie and I want to thank you for a wonderful week at Il Frutteto
in Massa Lubrense!

We just returned from Italy (we spent some time in Roma after leaving
our villa in Massa Lubrense), and we wanted to let you know that
everything at our villa was excellent. The villa was perfect, and
perfectly beautiful. Anna was an excellent cook, and very charming as
well as helpful.

Every one of our family felt our vacation was a complete success!
We will surely recommend Villeinitalia to our friends.

Again, many thanks for all your help and guidance.
Sheila,Charlie and familia.

"I wanted to write you a note letting you know how delighted we were with our stay at the villa "Il Frutteto". It not only met our expectations but
pleasantly surpassed them.The beautiful grounds with grape vines, vegetable garden, bar-b-que area, and out door eating areas were such a delight.
Inside, we were so well accomodated with lovely furnished rooms, an
extraordinary well equipped kitchen, and all that we needed to make us feel totally comfortable and at home. It was kept in immaculate condition by our chaming cleaning lady.
We cannot speak highly enough of you and your company. If we know anyone who is interested in renting a villa in Italy, of course we would not
hesitate to recommend "Ville in Italia."
Thank you again.
Sincerely yours,
"My family and I had an amazing time in Italy and absolutely loved Il Frutteto. The house was in a perfect location and exceeded my expectations. The rooms were all large, comfortable and nicely decorated and the exterior of the house was well kept. We were traveling with a 1 year old infant and he was perfectly safe and at home there. We have already recommended the house to friends who are looking for Italian rentals. The owner was very hospitable and came by to visit on a couple of occasions and even took my parents shopping to the butcher and other locals stores.

Thank you for your assistance with Il Frutteto.
Many thanks!
