Set in beautiful hilly countryside, with sweeping views of the Bay of Naples and the island of Capri, Villa Semplice is a stunning property. It boasts a swimming pool, outdoor dining areas, large terraces, WIFI and can sleep up to 13 guests. Hidden amongst olive groves, native vegetation and gardens, it overlooks the pretty town of Massa Lubrense.

Villa Semplice is an ideal holiday property for families or groups of friends looking for peace and quiet, but also for proximity to the seaside as it is only a 10 minute drive to the nearest beach. Furthermore, it is well located for the major attractions of Capri, Positano, Sorrento and Pompeii. Other beaches in the area are best reached by sea: a shuttle service from the nearby Marina will take you to secluded coves with crystal clear waters. A great selection of eateries, ranging from simple, family run trattorias to famous restaurants, will complete your holiday experience in this amazing area between the Sorrento and Amalfi Coasts.

Villa Semplice is accessed through electric gates off the main road and is located approximately 500 metres up a winding driveway. Here you will find the parking area and lower terrace. A car is essential when staying at this villa. Villa Semplice is made up of three independent apartments and spreads over 1,500 metres squared of terraced land on three levels.

On the ground floor of the villa level, are two of the apartments. They have been refurbished to high standards but still retain the rustic character of the former farmhouse. Villa Semplice (Apt.B), which can sleep up to 4 people, and Villa Semplice (Apt.A), which can sleep up to 5 people, are accessed directly from the footpaths on this level.

On the upper terrace, accessed along a winding footpath, is the independent attic apartment Villa Semplice (Apt.C) which sleeps up to 4 and has a large private courtyard and roof terrace. The villa is decorated in rich tones of coral, green and primrose yellow. Each apartment is furnished with a mixture of restored antique pieces, beautiful pictures and colourful, soft furnishings which all add to the cheerful feel of the house.

From the lower terrace, there are a series of wide and gentle steps leading up to a panoramic area with a private swimming pool. The pool is surrounded by lush lawns and furnished with comfortable, cushioned wooden sun loungers, tables and chairs.

Villa Semplice has spacious outdoor areas and well-kept lawns. Each apartment has a separate outdoor dining area and, when rented as a whole, there is a choice of large outdoor areas which can cater for the entire group. If the villa is rented as a whole, all outdoor areas will be private for you and your guests.

Alternatively, Villa Semplice (Apt.A) (5 people), Villa Semplice (Apt.B) (4 people), Villa Semplice (Apt.C) (4 people) can be rented individually. In this case, the outdoor areas, including the swimming pool, will be shared.

"Stunning views"

The villa is absolutely beautiful and in a fantastic location with stunning views. The gardens are huge and very well looked after thanks to the very busy gardener who comes every day and also looks after the pool.

"We loved Villa Semplice!"

Myself and my partner and our close families stayed at Villa Semplice for a week. Our stay was not the average holiday, it was a celebration of our marriage and we were having our ceremony in the beautiful outdoor space of Villa Semplice. Our stay was unbelievable. Absolutely perfect! The location of the villa was incredible, with unbeatable views right across the ocean to Capri. The 3 cottages that made up the villa were typically Italian and rustic and were absolutely lovely, they were ideal for us and our families.They had the perfect amount of space and were gorgeously decorated. Half way through our week we had our wedding ceremony. Piero, who manages the property, was beyond amazing at helping us organise this. He gave us tips about where to buy the things we needed, recommended chefs and barmen, and arranged them for us, he took us to florists and he was there for support throughout. He even came on the day of the ceremony to make sure everything was running smoothly, above and beyond his job role! The day was absolutely amazing. The setting was breathtaking, the chefs Piero arranged for us were fantastic! It really was the most amazing day of our lives, the most amazing week of our lives for that matter, and even our guests have said the same. We could not recommend Villa Semplice enough. It is beautiful. Gorgeous, Italian, rustic cottages, amazing outside eating areas, beautiful pool and breathtaking views. We wish we could live there! Alfonso, who manages things in England was also fantastic! He was extremely helpful and spent a great deal of time helping us to find the perfect place for our special celebration. He also helped us find further accommodation near Villa Casale for our friends. He was a huge help. Alfonso, thank you so much for helping us choose the perfect setting for the most amazing day and week of our lives. Piero, we will never forget you! We would not have had such an amazing wedding and week without your help. You were fantastic! From helping us with flowers, to food, drink, chefs, barmen and transport. You were a huge part of our big day and we can't thank you enough. We loved Villa Semplice!

"Absolutely Fantastic"

We stayed at all 3 apartments with our children aged 10,12 and 14. Check in was absolutely smooth, we hired a car (make sure it is a small one) at Naples airport, we had a GPS but even if you don't the instructions provided by the manager were easy to follow. We arrived on a Saturday night and were met in town by a smiling Chris who showed us the way to the apartment. We arrived to see the beautiful sunset, (just as you see in the photographs for the apartments). Chris helped us unload, showed us around the apartments and its gardens and pool (there are even laundry facilities). We then followed him back into town where he showed us some wonderful restaurants with a great outdoor terraces. The apartments were fantastic base from which to explore. During our stay we drove to Sorrento (20 minutes) from where we took the boat to Capri. Pompeii, Amalfi and Positano are all within easy reach and if you want a beach, Marina del Cantone is only 30 minutes away. The apartments were very clean and was even cleaned halfway through the week, the gardener/pool man was there every day. The highlight for all of us though was the wonderful pool, our children would have stayed in it every day if they could, the views over the sea to Capri, Naples and Vesuvius, were absolutely spectacular. We plan to return very soon.
