“A Week in Paradise”
Reviewed 15 April 2009

We will always cherish our time at the Torre Cangiani. The stone walls, covered in vines the gardens and views are all beautiful. The concert of birdsong every morning seemed just for us. The smell of the lemon trees filled the house. Late afternoons we sat on our terrace with a full view of the Bay of Naples, Capri to the left, Ischia across the bay, and Vesuvius to the right. One sunset was more magnificent, than the next. Situated on a farm growing lemons and olives, we got to know the country and feel its beating heart. The people are the real treasure, though. Aldo, Matilda and Simone were always there when needed with good advice, making phone calls, coordinating details when needed. Their family has been there since 1300 and they have a love, respect and knowledge of the area. They are well read, sophisticated people who could help us in so many ways. We do not like to revisit places when there are so many new ones to visit, but Torre Cangiani is like returning home.

A group of seven friends spent one week at Torre Cangiani. Everything met our expectations. Comfortable beds, freshly cleaned sheets, delicious organic food, amazing views of the Bay of Naples and Capri and Mt. Vesuvius, and all in the company of the beguiling owners Aldo, Matilda, and Simone who took very good care of us.

One suggestion: if you are going to rent a car, rent a small one. Narrow and windy roads with very confident local drivers!

We stayed 2 nights in the Foresteria - a charming little villa next to the stunning house. Our hosts (Aldo, Simona and Mathilda) are truly wonderful, so kind, so helpful and such a pleasure to have met. They really go out of their way to make your stay memorable, including making you a CD of photos of your stay. The breakfasts (homemade jams, cakes etc) are delicious and the setting and views incredible amongst the lemon and olive groves. A car is recommended although the bus stop (good regular service) is very close. We can not wait to return. Massa Lubrense is refreshing and relaxing after the tourism of the Amalfi Coast. A major highlight of our trip. Thank you!

We found a true jewel among places to stay at. Torre Cangiani is a wonderful, quiet - yet centrally located agriturismo on a walking distance to (!) Sorrento. Aldo and wife Mathilde with sons are your caring host.

We stayed in the Foresteria with a beautiful own privat garden with a fabulous view of Capri and Ischia. The little, one-room house is tastefully and newly renovated with a lovely scent. Aldo prepares breakfast for you every morning in their kitchen. You get to have their home made lemon and orange marmalades, Limoncello, "Aranciello" (Orange liquor) and all kinds of little things from his garden. All the products in the garden are biologically grown.

The yard is beautiful and peaceful, and the view of the sea, Capri, Ischia, Vesuvius and lemon trees is smashing. Even though it is quiet and peaceful here you can reach a very good
restaurant, Ristorante Antico Francischiello, when walking only 5 minutes. That is a match made in heaven!

Aldo Nunziata and his wife Matilda do a superb job of making you feel at home and taking care of your every need.

This property sits high above the coast, with fantastic views of the Mediterranean and the Isle of Capri.

A saracen tower, built during the seventeenth century, to ward off the raids of turkish pirates, overlooks this rural residence, with a small internal courtyard. A lemon grove and a plantation of ancient olive trees on the steep terraced hillside, surrounds the whole building.

It is a great home base for visiting nearby Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi, Pompei, Vesuvius, Naples, and Capri.

The meals are prepared by Matilda (with help from Aldo) in the large kitchen/eating area from locally grown organic produce and wines, and locally caught fish and game, or selected daily from local markets, and are the highlight of the visit.
