"We did enjoy it."

The property was very nice and conveniently located, for the most part. The terrace and outdoor views were lovely. It was very nice to work with you. I particularly appreciated all the helpful information you sent prior to our arrival. Everybody at Naples Villas very helpful especially Carmine, how meet us on arrival and took my wife and I to get the basics as the next day was a Sunday, in his own car, and cooked us a very nice meal at the villa later in the week. A very nice treat.

"The view is outstanding and the maid service excellent."

A beautiful villa with everything you need. The view is outstanding and the maid service excellent. You are a fantastic support: prompt replies to e-mails and nothing was a problem. The best company I have ever used and when I return to Italy you will be the first I will look at. Thank you

"We enjoyed staying at Villa very much!"

Villa Lirica is a nice place to stay for bigger family/company and who do not require daily trips to the sea, as it is really far from the beaches. The best thing about villa is a breathtaking view of Sorrento bay and Vesuvius. Big terrace is great - we spent there all our time together. Davide and Teresa [the caretakers] were always at our call, and very helpful.

"Stunning infinity pool"

We had a very nice week in the villa Lirica, plenty of space inside this was good as the weather was very wet on a couple of days, so my grandson had plenty of room to toddle around. The views of the bay of Naples where the best you could get. Villa very clean and well kept. Stayed with all the family plenty of room and the outside area would be really nice in the summer, sun and nice shade. Only down side we didn’t have a car and trying to get the bus was a bit difficult at first, as you need to get the tickets before you get on and we couldn’t find the stop, but okay after that.

"The villa fulfilled all our expectations"

We had a marvellous week with 10 of our family aged 8 to 48. The property fully lived up to the description and its location could hardly be bettered, with a cooling breeze to relieve the warmth . The children spent hours in the pool, playing football and table tennis,In the evening there was a good DVD player and other equipment. We were very well looked after by the good-humoured Davide, who was the contact to the absent owner. He recommended a good nearby restaurant (Don Pedro) and a full day boat hire which everyone enjoyed.Therese kept the place clean and cooked a meal when we arrived. I would certainly recommend Villa Lirica to anyone. The villa fulfilled all our expectations and gave us a very happy week we will always remember . Recommended for Families with Young Children.

"We had breathtaking views of Sorrento bay and Vesuvius from large terrace"

We had the most wonderful week at Villa Lirica. We were picked up at Sorrento and taken to the villa. As the next day was Sunday, Carmine took us to the local shops so we could buy supplies, as we did not have a car. Carmine was also very helpful with organising our trip by private boat to Capri, well worth doing! We had breathtaking views of Sorrento bay and Vesuvius from large terrace were we spent long days admiring the view, swimming, eating , drinking. Good location to visit Pompeii and Vesuvius and the Amalfi coast. We took the bus from outside the villa, which stopped off at Positano, Amalfi and then a short ride to Ravello. Fabulous day! Villa kept clean by friendly staff everyday. The brand new infinity pool and hot tub great bonus. Would still highly recommend villa for great location, 15 mins by bus to Sorrento. Would recommend car for convenience, but not necessary if you are happy to pick up supplies by bus.

" It was, without a doubt, an amazing experience"

To celebrate my 40th birthday and our 5th wedding anniversary, my wife and I traveled to Italy with friends in July 2012. After a week in Tuscany, we travelled to Sorrento to stay at Villa Lirica. It was, without a doubt, an amazing experience. The villa itself is beautiful and has plenty of room for 10. Photos do not do it justice (Alfonso, if you want me to come back and take photos of Villa Lirica, just say the word!). The terraces alone are worth the stay - the view of the Bay of Naples is beautiful, with Vesuvius looming on the horizon. You are actually looking down on Sorrento and when there are fireworks in the town, you are treated to a show below you. We spent many mornings and evenings on those terraces, sipping coffee or wine, playing cards and just enjoying life. Carmine was incredibly helpful. Anything you wanted to do, he could arrange (it seemed as though he was was friends with everyone). He came and cooked a wonderful meal for us, arranged for two amazing private boats to Capri, and transportation to Vesuvius and Pompeii. While you can arrange all of that on your own, Carmine took all of that off my shoulders and I was able to relax and just enjoy the experience. We can't wait to go back.
