Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach Walk to Village

Surrounded by the greenery of its gardens and in a residential setting close to the coast is comfortable Villa Minerva. The small town's shops, restaurants, bars and transport links are all a short walk away; as is the coast and its dramatic volcanic-sand beaches.

Just a 10-minute drive down to the coast will bring you to Sorrento. This popular clifftop town offers sweeping sea views and an old town full of historic buildings and lively squares.

Villa Minerva is a modern holiday home that sleeps up to 10 people, with family-friendly accommodation spread over three floors. There's a real home-from-home feel throughout, and the ground-floor open-plan living/dining room is sure to be a favourite space.

Chatting on the sofa and sitting down to meals easily turns into al-fresco gatherings, with doors that open straight onto a terrace with table and chairs. This terrace itself leads into the garden where you'll find a large swimming pool, sun loungers and peaceful seating areas. There's an easygoing vibe wherever you choose to relax.

The three double bedrooms are as bright and spacious as the living areas and two of them have balconies for morning coffees or evening drinks. One of the bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom with a hydromassage bath offering extra indulgence.

Particularly flexible for families with children and teenagers is the lower-ground floor area. A large communal area features two single beds as well as a second lounge with double sofa bed. There's even a small pool table and access to other games and gym equipment for entertainment.

Along with Sorrento, several coastal towns are easy to reach by car from Villa Minerva. Enjoy a day out to Massa Lubrense, with long hikes and boat trips just some of the ways to appreciate the area's stunning beauty. Be sure to visit the archaeological site of Pompeii with much to explore and learn about. Still-active Mount Vesuvius is a natural wonder that's just over an hour's drive away.

Villa Minerva is part of a residential area in a charming coastal town, so it's great for families. A range of amenities such as restaurants and shops are just a short walk away. Make a picnic and take the 20-minute walk down to the coast for an afternoon of relaxing on a beach and swimming in the sea. One of the nearest beaches has volcanic sand and sun loungers, with some watersports like canoeing also on offer.

Just a few metres away from the villa is a bus stop with services heading to Sorrento. You can also drive to the town in around 10 minutes. Sorrento is famous for its lemons, with the town being home to shops selling lemon-themed souvenirs and local crafts. The beautiful old town is a lovely place to take a stroll. Historic buildings here include the 14th-century church of Chiesa di San Francesco, a bell tower, monastery and cathedral. Pizza Tasso is a popular place to take a sightseeing break with coffee, ice creams or lunch at a pavement cafe.

Also around a 10-minute drive away is Massa Lubrense. Follow hiking trails through the hills for stunning views over the Gulf of Naples and the Gulf of Salerno and enjoy meals in harbour-side restaurants. Marina della Lobra is a great place to simply watch activity on the water, with boats heading to places like the idyllic Punta Campanella Marine Reserve. On many boat trips you can go diving, cave swimming and take in fantastic views over to the island of Capri.

The archaeological site of Pompeii is 40 minutes away by car. Explore this fascinating ancient site and then head to Mount Vesuvius to marvel at the still-active volcano.
