Located in Massa Lubrense, this exclusive two-villa estate is the perfect place for a stylish break on one of the most famous stretches of coastline in the Mediterranean. To the west and south-west of Sorrento is a hilly hinterland, the sprawling Massa Lubrense, and a wild stretch of coast that developers have left untouched. The Massa Lubrense is home to hamlets and ancient look-out towers, a reminder of repeated invasions over the centuries, surrounded by citrus and olive groves.

Set in the hills just below the ridge that divides Sorrento from the sheer southern coastline lies the village of Sant’Agata Sui Due Golfi, named for its domination of the gulfs of both Naples and Salerno. At the tip of the beautiful Sorrento Peninsula, Nerano is a little-known and charming fishing village on the Amalfi Coast. Nerano is a tiny village built into the mountains overlooking a pretty little harbor below and is surrounded by one of the most untouched and dramatic areas on the Amalfi Coast.
Despite its attractive setting, what brings most visitors to Nerano is Marina del Cantone. A steep road leads from the village of Nerano down to Marina del Cantone, where you are greeted by brightly colored umbrellas lining the beach and the sparkling blue Mediterranean Sea. The pebbly beach hugs the gentle curve of the quiet harbor, and the beachfront offers one lido after another where you can rent sun beds and umbrellas.
The town center of Sorrento is laid out on a Roman grid of lanes, now lined with restaurants serving gnocchi and shops selling lemon-themed souvenirs. But away from the well-worn paths are little-explored nooks and crannies. The vaulted Sedile Dominova, once a meeting space for aristocracy, is now a working-men’s club where old-timers while away afternoons playing cards. Then there are traditional greengrocers and haberdashers huddled behind wooden shop fronts, the medieval palaces and artisan workshops.
If Sorrento gets too much, the laid-back town of Vico Equense, which stands on a sheer tufa cliff just along the coast, makes an attractive base. Beach bums tend to head for the small pockets of sand tucked into coves at Marina di Vico and Marina d’Aequa, walkers tackle the old footpath to Positano, clinging to the cliffs on the Amalfi coastline, and culture hounds hop on the Circumvesuviana train to march around the ancient sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum, destroyed by the eruption of the Vesuvius.
