Sea View Cottage between Positano and Sorrento
Parker Villas Exclusive - A private pocket listing available nowhere else
From a spectacular sun drenched terrace overlooking Mount Vesuvius and the sensuous Bay of Naples, Capitano hovers high above the picturesque fishing village of Marina di Lobra. This westernmost promontory of the Amalfi coast is midway between Sorrento and Positano. Capitano is part of a small gated community housing six independent condominiums.
Warm weather and gorgeous scenery invoke outdoor living. Capitano’s oversized terrazzo is festooned with flowers and enjoys seating areas for dining, lounging and sunning along with an outdoor shower and a gas grill. Those wanting to avoid the numerous steps of the Amalfi coast hills will appreciate the level, 30 yard paved walkway from the parking and the scant two steps needed to access the main floor.
Fully air conditioned, Capitano's simple and summery interiors are set on two levels. From the main entrance, the living room and a double bedroom face the sea view terrace. Accessed from the terrace, an outdoor stairway leads down to a semi-interred level with another two bedrooms and their own en suite bathrooms.
Recent upgrades to this vacation home include window screens, a laptop with Wi-Fi and IPod speakers. Cleaning services are available on request.
For the summer 2017, the house may be rented at a price for 4 guests with one of the bedrooms and bathrooms closed.
Within 400 yards in either direction are two churches. One shares its square with a rustic pizzeria and the other with a tiny convenience store. The quaint fishing harbor of Marina di Lobra with three dining choices, one specializing in the daily catch is reached in a 10 minute downhill drive. Massa Lubrense and Sant’Agata sui Due Golfi with more shops and dining options are both reached in eight minutes by car.
Capitano is perfectly positioned between the Amalfi coast's two most sought after towns: Sorrento and Positano. Within a 20 minute drive, Sorrento offers plenty to see and do, as well as year round ferries to the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida and trains heading north to Pompeii, Naples and Rome. Positano, the jewel of the Amalfi coast lies 30 minutes south of Capitano. Amalfi, Pompeii and Ravello are within an hour's drive.
Lower level: Down 16 external steps from the terrace. One bedroom with two single, joinable beds, a single daybed and en suite bathroom with shower. One bedroom with a queen size bed and en suite bathroom with shower.
