In Ravello lies also the ancient Villa Rufolo which was built approximately in the year 1280 by the homonymous family, one of the richest and most important families in Ravello.

Concerts are held in the villa during the summer time where the audience is enthralled to see the orchestra that plays as if it were suspended half-way up on a uniformly blue setting, representing the sky and sea.

The House is a short 10 minute walk from the town of Amalfi (1 km.), or in 5 minutes by bus and is about 5 km.

from Ravello. It is within easy reach of a food store.

The closest beach is Castiglione which is again only a 10 minute walk away. This beach is about 100 steps below the road.

The House has an elegant aspect that is enhanced by the top quality of its furnishings. It is located not far from the road.

The House is surrounded by gardens filled with colored flowers and lemons which also affords access to the rocky beach below that is shared with the other guests in residence (only three apartments) .

It features a wonderful independent terrace plus a covered patio (about 50 square meters) overlooking the coast and the seascape terraces and gardens facing the sun and the sea.

You will also find here a table with chairs, umbrellas, deck chairs and a shower.

The House has its own private drive and access is via an electronically controlled gate.

In the property is available a parking space for one veicle, which is reservable by paying an extra charge.

The The House consists of:

An elegant bedroom with 1 double bed

Another elegant bedroom with a double sofa bed

A bathroom with shower

The two bedrooms share a bathroom.

From the double bedroom you have access to the fully equipped kitchen that comes fitted with dishwasher, fridge and freezer, 4-burner stove, oven and a table that seats 4 people.

From the kitchen a door leads to a terrace.

All the bedrooms face onto the terraces and of course have stunning views. Staying at The House will afford you the privilege of witnessing sheer beauty every single waking moment of your vacation, from morning time, when you wake up and the sun rises behind the contours of mountains and lights the sea, till nightfall, when the shimmering stars shine above and the sea reflects the moon.

Very good

  • 4 of 5

Italian Exclusive Villas, the management company was great! Very professional and accommodating. The property itself was beautiful, the only complaint was the WiFi service was down more than it was available. The Property owner needs to correct this as it's a shortfall. Based on the location of the villa. There is nothing near the villa for 2KM for service. I'm a professional who requires Internet service because of my profession I'm required to work at any time.

Owner's Response: Dear client, thanks for yr feed back and we appreciate yr advice, anyway wi-fi, especially in high season, sometimes works intermittently as the internet lines are overloaded by thousands of customers who want to spend their holidays on the Amalfi Coast, included the cruise ships, that, sometimes slow down the line even in our office, so I think that if you decide to spend and holiday in Amalfi Coast, even if you don't have internet access 24/24 hours, you have to enjoy yr holiday. Regarding service, close to the house there are some bar and restaurant, maybe you didn't know them and also the home delivery grocery. Anyway, I hope that you spent an unforgettable holiday as you was a deliciuos guest. Many thanks from the staff of Italian Exclusive Villas.

Utterly stunning property with a view to die for

  • 5 of 5

The 180 degree view is simply fantastic. The villa is beautifully decorated in great taste, and the furniture and beds are very comfortable. All the equipment, kitchen appliances etc. are really good quality, and kept in good condition.

The property is self contained, with a gorgeous large private shaded terrace, with several options for lounging eating and sitting. It also has a quite secluded, heated open air shower which is great for "freshening up" al fresco.

It's surrounded by lovely terraced gardens, which you walk through to access the shared swimming platform area. While there are a fair number of steps, we found it an easy walk. The platform has 3 separate areas with their own secure storage, complete with complimentary sun beds, snorkelling gear etc. so you have your own space to lie in and swim from. We mainly had it to ourselves during the holiday.

There is secure shaded parking off road with automatic gates, which is worth its weight in gold in this area. This can be tricky to use at busy times / initially, but there is plenty of space and it's easy once you become familiar.

There are very few, easy steps from the car to the front door, so very convenient for bringing in the shopping too. Amalfi, Ravello, Maiori and Minori are all close by, so the position is very central and convenient to explore from.

The property is reasonably close to the road, so you do hear some traffic noise, and horns at busy times. but it is below road level, and well insulated from the sound, and we didn't find the sound intrusive.

In fact we felt it was really peaceful and secluded, with almost no noise from neighbours or nearby clubs etc. and it actually felt quite remote from late afternoon onwards.

Given how close most properties are to the road on the Amalfi coast, you will probably get as much, or more noise unless you are willing to walk hundreds of steps down from the road.

The agent and family were absolutely lovely, giving us a genuinely warm welcome, so the atmosphere was really comfortable too.

Really, really fabulous, we will return for sure.

Hello

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to tell you how much we loved the villa. It is truly spectacular and it was a privilege to stay there!

The only small problem is that the internet is not very dependable. I have a feeling that might be true throughout the area.

Staying there was the highlight of our trip and maybe someday we will come back!

Best regards,

Michael

Grazie Francesca e Matteo! Ci vediamo a presto!

  • 5 of 5

This property has it all: beautiful interior, LOVELY terrace, astounding views, all in a beautiful setting. It's a 5-minute walk to lovely Atrani village & 20 mins to Amalfi. Bus tix can be purchased 4 mins down the street at the little store where you can also grab an espresso or some groceries. The property's "beach" area is incredible. A wonderful place for a swim. Also,a bonus: very few steps to the front door, yet a panoramic view! Francesca is lovely to deal with, sweet and friendly. My husband & I look forward to staying here again & would definitely recommend it to our friends!

Paradisiacal

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the week at the "Casetta Blu" with our 2 children. The owners (who are living next to the appartment) are very kind and helpfull. The house is very clean and comfortable. And the seaview... awesome... Atrani (a very beautiful and typical village) is about 5 minutes by walk and Amalfi at 15 minutes. We enjoyed the private beach every day and if the see was too wavy, we went to a sandy beach at Castiglione (just before Atrani so at 4 minutes by walk!).We loved the seaview, the lemontrees,... the amalfitan cost!

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from our honeymoon at La Casetta Blu and we couldn't have been more pleased with our accomodations. Silvio and Emma were gracious hosts and the apartment is clean, new, bright - even better than the photos. We had a little issue with ants - but this is very common for the region and the owners were very helpful in getting rid of them. The apartment has a driveway that fits one car (recommended as the apartment isn't centrally located). It is about a 20-25 minute walk to Amalfi for groceries and necessities and a quick car ride up to Ravello. The private beach was a lovely amenity of the house but it is shared with the owners and their family, which at times could be just a bit awkward. Everyone was friendly and accommodating, but we sometimes felt like we were intruding on family time.

All in all, the apartment is incredible and the beach unbeatable. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to get a bit of a taste of what real Amalfitani life is like. Enjoy!
