Filled with original antiques and precious chandeliers, Villa Gioacchino has entrance on a large corridor which leads to two living rooms, each furnished with luxurious but clearly-formed antique pieces.

The swimming pool (3 m. x 9 m.) overlooking the Gulf of Naples is nestled in a secluded corner of the large gardens which blends in perfectly with the natural landscape, allowing guests to indulge in peace and privacy.

One finds Villa Gioacchino in the village of Santa Maria Annunziata in one of the most beautiful views on Capri and the Bay of Naples is not only a great place to spend a relaxing holiday but also offers the advantage of a privileged position as a starting point to explore and discover the beauty of the surroundings.

Massa Lubrense is not only situated in an exceptional strategic position, in the heart of the green and blue delta, between Sorrento, Capri and Positano, it also has a splendid coast of some twenty-one kilometers, from Puolo to the Crapolla fjord and including Marina della Lobra, Punta San Lorenzo, The Bay of Sirens, the Cala of Mitigliano, Punta Campanella, the Bay of Ieranto, Marina del Cantone and the Bay of Recommone.
Villa Gioacchino was built in the 17th century. it belonged originally to the Della Noce family who bought various farms in Massa Lubrense. At the end of the ‘700’s, it was bought by the Rossi Family, originally from Amalfi, and as a result it was known as Villa Rossi for a long time.
In October 1808, Andrea Rossi welcomed, for a short while, Napoleon´s brother in law King Gioacchino Murat who, having just become King of Naples, decided to proceed with his first military action: conquering and recapturing the island of Capri from the hands of the English. Here, in front of the Blue Island, on the 17th October of the same year, Sir Hudson Lowe agreed to surrender the island to Gioacchino Murat. Lowe then continued to embelish the pages of history, notably the incarceration of Napoleon on Saint Helena.
How to get there
There are several ways to get to Massa Lubrense / Sorrento Coast from Naples Capodichino Airport or Naples train station either by renting a car or by public transport, but it can be a little complicated for first time visitors. Knowing the options and making your travel plans in advance will start your trip to Sorrento off on the right foot.
If choosing to arrive by Public transport it would depend on your arrival time at the airport/train station. The easiest (and least stressful!) way to reach any destination on the Sorrento Coast from Naples airport or train station is to hire a taxi for a private transfer. While it might seem an extravagant expense, the advantages far outweigh the cost.
Since public transportation on the Sorrento Coast is easy to use and affordable and parking is expensive and very limited, renting a car is not recommended in general.
Once at the property you can get around fine without the car as parking in the towns is hard to come by and expensive. Public Buses operate year-around connecting Ravello to Amalfi, where are buses to all the Amalfi Coast villages and Sorrento area. Ferries (from May to October) operate a service between Amalfi - Positano - Sorrento - Capri Island - Naples and Salerno.
