Relais Villarena - Nerano - Massa Lubrense

Go to the top

Nerano is a tiny fishing village outside Massa Lubrense on the coast between Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. It was here that the Marquis of Villarena established his historic residence, a lovely villa which is now Relais Villarena, where travellers to this magical coast spend an unforgettable vacation on Italy's Bay of Naples.

Your Seaside Villa

La Rotonda, Il Gallo Lungo, La Vetara, Il Brigante, L'Isca: these are the pretty Relais Villarena holiday apartments with all the comforts of home. Each apartment has a living area with a kitchenette, a breathtaking private terrace facing the sea and the romantic Li Galli islets, and direct access to the garden.
Villarena also has two annex apartments, for travellers looking for added privacy during their stay.

Relax in the Garden

The villa includes a traditional terraced garden so common along the steep coastline of the Sorrentine Peninsula. Each terrace holds a unique surprise, including the outdoor pool and hot tub, the sundeck overlooking the sea, and, for those curious to sample the local specialities, the gourmet terraces - one with a tasting room for local products and another with the restaurant tucked under the shade of the lemon grove.
In just a few minutes, guests can walk to the Nerano beach to relax at the water's edge and take a dip in the Mediterranean.

The "Dolce Far Niente" Restaurant

With the sweet scent of lemon blossoms, the view of the sea, and the excellent traditional cuisine, the villa's Dolce far Niente restaurant is the perfect spot for an unforgettable meal.

"Mamma Mia" is the villa's cooking class which can be organized individually or for an entire groups at Villarena for those who want to learn how to prepare the local dishes...the hands-on lesson is followed by a meal made from what you have prepared!
