"La Casetta" is one of the few property with private access to the sea. Living on the patio will give you the impression of standing on the deck of your own ship and if you like swimming, you can walk for few steps and reach the sea without stress.

The attraction of the house is without a doubt the patio overlooking the Marina Lobra,in the fantastic setting of the protected marine reserve 'Punta Campanella.

  • We loved our stay at La Casetta! Book it you will not be sorry! Tiziana is a wonderful generous host. We were welcomed with fresh fruit,drinks and breakfast provisions to this small well equipped apartment. This type of experience is what I imagined the Airbnb ethos would be all about! We felt like valued guests. The pick up from busy Sorrento train station was great, as were the ample instructions,public timetables and information concerning local attractions ect., if only we had had more time to enjoy the patio,garden,BBQ and sun beds with a view to die for! A perfect place fork a private cooling swim after a busy day at Pompeii or busy Naples. Thank you we hope one day to be back!

  • People always have reasonable doubts when travelling,weather the photographs have shown the reality or not. In Tiziana's case, the reality is even more beautiful than the photographs. You instantly get carried away by the view, the sea and the people - both your hosts and the citizens - when you arrive and that deep affection for Massa Lubrense and its sorroundings just srengthens with time. I daresay that i have never felt souch harmony that i felt there. It was a truly inspiring, fulfilling and beautiful journey for me that will last forever. Or at least until the next time i visit them. Because i surely will! So thank you again Tiziana and Ciro! And thank you Mssa Lubrense, Sorrento and Capri for existing :)

  • If there was a word that could describe our holidays in La Casetta, that would be wonderful. The studio is charming, you have basically everything that you can need, it is very clean and comfortable (the bed is good). However, we spent most of our time outside on the beautiful patio. Indeed, the view is just as it is in the pictures or I would say even better !!! Massalubrense is a small village, we were there in June but we haven't seen a lot of tourists, it is very quiet. But, you can find everything you need without going out of the village. There are two nice restaurants on the harbour, a very nice bar (Angelo's Bar) small shops...Tiziana and Ciro are amazing hosts ! They are lovely people, always there to help you if you need to and I recommend staying at La Casetta.
    The only thing that needs to be clear for those who want to spend a few days in this place is that there are a lot of steps to access the house so if you can't handle them then don't go to La Casetta.

    To sum up : do not hesitate to go there, my boyfriend and I will definitely come back if we have the chance to do it!

  • Our Stay at La Casetta was wonderful. Beautiful terrace and garden for sunbathing, eating and taking in the fantastic view. Marina della Lobra is a very pretty little harbour hidden away from all the hustle and hectic associated with the Gulf of Naples. Tiziana was a very kind and warm hearted host who made our stay La Casetta very special.

  • A beautiful location with wonderful views and very generous hosts. So pleased we stayed by the sea rather than in Sorrento. We had a very relaxed time. A visit to Angelo's bar, 200 metres away, is a must.

  • We had a wonderful time at La Casetta! The place is just as beautiful as the pictures suggest. There is plenty of space to relax on the terraces with their magnificent views of the islands Ischia, Procida and the Gulf of Naples. The apartment itself was the best equipped we have ever found, decorated with love and care. Tiziana and Ciro are the most welcoming hosts you can think of! They recommended us walking tours, good shops and restaurants and even showed us how to cook spaghetti con vongole e lupini! We would really love to come back!

  • We had a lovely week in this charmingly cosy, seaside apartment despite some temperamental October weather! The location is idyllic with access to a quiet swimming spot in the beautifully clear sea just down some private steps from the apartment doorstep.

    We sunbathed on their large roof terrace, which has amazing views across the bay and fell in love with the small fishing village of Masse Lubrense, less than 5 minutes walk away with two good restaurants and a small food shop. The owners - Tiziana and her husband were very sweet, friendly and helpful.

    The location is absolutely perfect for day trips to Sorrento, Mt Vesuvius, Pompeii, Naples, Positano, Ravello and Capri - all of which we did in just 5 days! I would thoroughly recommend driving the Amalfi coastal road and stopping to have a walk around Positano and then on to Ravello - both magical places quite unlike anywhere we've been before! We hired a small boat from a man named Luigi in Massa Lubrense for 60€ and took it over to Capri for the day which was fun although Capri was a little over crowded with tourists so we didn't stay for long.

    We felt the only drawback was no allocated parking space which could become a hassle in the busier summer months. We found a (rare) free space just down the road under some trees, but otherwise would have had to pay 8€ a day in the nearby car park at the top of the property, starting from 8am every day.

    Also, due to fairly wet autumnal weather (quite unusual - October normally remains hot) the apartment became and remained rather damp meaning towels and swimming costumes didn't dry off, but I'm sure this wouldn't be a problem in the warmer summer months or could perhaps be helped by a dehumidifier.

  • Tiziana and Ciro were amazing and accommodating hosts, and we really enjoyed our stay in their cozy apartment. The apartment itself was very comfortable. It was very private, and with a very well-equipped kitchen. The view from the terrace could not have been better - the kind of environment one would normally pay a small fortune to have. We would absolutely stay with Tiziana again, and highly recommend it!

  • I adore this place! No! Actually we adore this place! I almost don't want to tell anyone else about it because I want to keep it as my little secret, is how much I like it. From the setting sun, which Tiziana hurried us to watch from the terrace, to the sound of lapping waves and the fishing boats getting ready for the morning or evening catch, to the smell of the flowers in the terraced garden...superb!!!

    Tiziana had left fresh flowers on top of the towels in the bathroom, and fresh fruit, wine and olive oil from husband Ciro's pressing. SHe and her husband were attentive, but discrete. Ciro actually came to find us when were lost on arrival and helped with the translation to English. Tizana and her daughter brought Limonchello to toast my birthday on wonderful.

    What more can one say? We had access to 3 private terraces from morning to night, we had access direct onto the sea and swan 3 or 4 times a day and had views of Ischia to die for!

    There is only one drawback, there are 120 steps from the apartment to the car park. I hope that puts you off going so that I won't have any problem rebooking for when I want to go. On the other hand if you descend those stairs you will experience magic and I/we want all the world to share that sublime experience.

  • Tiziana and Ciro were amazing hosts! They were extremely warm, welcoming, knowledgable and hospitable. Both the location and apartment were absolutely gorgeous! It was so wonderful, we found it very difficult to leave. We cannot wait to return and stay longer on our next visit. This place is an absolute must!!!!

Ciao, sono Tiziana,vivo a Napoli e sono sposata con Ciro;ho due figli di 25 e 22 anni con cui condivido ancora le mie passioni: il mare prima di tutto (siamo tutti subacquei!), ed il tennis.Inoltre,adoro le moto ( ne ho due,odio la macchina). Mi piace fare cose creative, cucinare,ricevere e stare in compagnia. Sono dinamica, chiacchierona, e spontanea. Dal 2011 ho intrapreso questa bellissima esperienza: diventare "Host" ed affittare "La Casetta" è stato ed è bellissimo, mi ha dato la possibilità di conoscere persone di nazionalità diversa e di vederli incantati dalle bellezze dei posti che hanno visitato nella nostra penisola. E' stato divertente aiutarli nella guida dei posti da vedere ed, a volte, spronarli ad allontanarsi dal patio che offre uno spettacolo meraviglioso di tramonti e colori. Che dirvi di più? Vi aspetto!!
