The pictures of this villa do not do it justice...

May 2023 - We were a family of almost 18 (ages 4 - 80) traveling for a birthday celebration. We had the trip of a lifetime. The pictures of this villa do not do it justice! There are so many outdoor terraces, each with an amazing view of the hills, the island of Capri and the sea. The inside of the villa was beautiful, updated and very clean.

The owners could not be more accommodating. They set up a private gourmet chef for our birthday celebration, a chef for a pizza party in the upper terrace outdoor pizza oven that included about 12 different kinds of pizzas, they shared their homemade limoncello with us, set up a car service so we could go out on the town one evening, told us all the local sites to visit. It was so amazing. The only less than perfect star I’m giving is on the peace and quiet question. There were a few days when the neighbours down the hill were using a chainsaw to cut trees early in the morning but nothing our hosts could be responsible for.

Overall everyone in our party loved this villa and want to go back!

Great experience with Summer In Italy! Very responsive to questions and helpful.

Travel tips

  • Purchase the best car insurance option available if you will be renting a car in this area. All the roads along the Amalfi Coast are single lane with extremely sharp turns. There are some ares were two cars cannot pass each other at the same time going opposite ways. Breathtaking views but difficult driving.

September 2022 - We had a mini family reunion there and everyone had a great time.

The owner and her husband are the sweetest people and most helpful. We are very thankful for all their help.

Great communication.

Everything was fabulous

October 2019 - We loved the home and the owners. Seven couples felt at home in this very nice villa. We wished we could have stayed longer. Everything was fabulous.

Maurizio and his wife went above and beyond to make sure our stay was great.

Travel tips

  • Villa Carminia is about 15 minutes south of Sorrento up a very long driveway. Make sure you have a vehicle that is not a bus to arrive and depart from the villa. The view was worth it!
  • We paid extra to have a chef service for our dinners. Rita cooks delicious food! We will definitely do this again.

May 2019 - We absolutely loved Villa Carminia.

The accommodation is top notch. The view is outstanding and the owners were extremely helpful and very nice.

We would use Summer In Italy again. Besides arranging the villa, they gave us excellent transportation info also. They promptly answer all concerns. I highly recommend them.

Travel tips

  • The owner, Maurizio set up a private boats for us to see Capri.
  • He also arranged for 2 lovely dinners cooked at the villa -- it was so nice and relaxing to return there after a day of sightseeing and enjoy the lounge by the pool and a fabulous meal.

April 2019 - Villa Carminia is simply superb and the location is stunning, with a sensational view. The only thing lacking is an indoor lounge/living area for people to sit around when the weather prevents being outside.

The owners couldn't have been more helpful as were the staff who came in.

I booked with Summer In Italy because of the interaction with Alfano when I first logged on to your site. The whole process was seamless and I will use your services again in the future.

Travel tips

  • Make sure you have your own car.
  • We found everything we needed in Massa Lubrense and some terrific local restaurants.

October 2018 - We really loved staying at this villa. The outdoor space was really nice. The views were spectacular!

We were able to cook our meals in the very nice kitchen and eat outside. There was room for everyone. The pool area is wonderful. The bedrooms and bathrooms were better than expected and very comfortable.

The owners and their representative were all friendly, charming, and helpful.

I would stay there again. In fact, I wish I were there right now! I'd like to move in.

I liked dealing with Summer in Italy. I booked with you because you had the property I was looking for, and you got good reviews in travel websites. I found everyone I dealt with in the company to go out of their way to be helpful. They answered every question and were very accommodating. I'd use your company again without question.
