Agricola Villa Lupara is a brilliant little find, tucked away in Croce with great access to Salerno, Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast...
We stayed at the villa on a friends recommendation and I have to say we were pleasantly surprised at all times. Lena and Daniela, the mother daughter duo who run the place were perfect hosts. Along with the staff, they were available at all times to provide information and assistance without being intrusive.
The property itself is vast and you could spend quite a few days just walking around the beautifully maintained gardens and lounge by the lovely infinity pool. Its excellent links to nearby attractions like the Amalfi only add to its charms as a great base camp.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom self catering apartment called Mansarda, which could easily house 6 so it meant there was tons of space for the 4 of us. Having 2 bathrooms in the flat made it quite convenient as well. Breakfast was provided in the morning - an array of homemade biscuits, cakes and juices along with fresh jams. We opted for lunch and dinner at the villa a few times and the food was fabulous, and eating it out in the gorgeous conservatory made it a fantastic experience. (you need to let the guys know if you want to opt for meals)... The view of the sea while lying out by the pool is incredible as well.
All in all, it was a great relaxing holiday and somewhere I would definitely come back to!!
Thanks for a great holiday!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Villa Lupara is not out to distort the natural beauty of the place – the name itself for example is the same as that of the street where the farm is.The farm has been built and renovated using natural and ecological materials as much as was possible, often giving new life to things that could no longer be used in their original state and thus combining the past with the present. At the same time a system has been installed which saves up to 70% of energy compared to a conventional building ... more less
