Overview

About the property

Villa in Ravello, Nr. Amalfi, Campania, Italy - Located In Historic Ravello, Close To Town And Easy Access To All The Jewels Of The Amalfi Coast

Villa Ravello Grecamore offers a comfortable stay on the Costiera Amalfitana (Amalfi Coast). With spacious accommodation, outside spaces and with fabulous views.

Sleeps 8-10 comfortably, perfect for families and groups of friends. One of the outstanding features is that all main rooms and outside spaces have wonderful sea views over the Bay of Salerno. The accommodation includes: large lounge/dining room; 5 bedrooms (3 x double bed, 1 x twin single, 2 x single); 3 bathrooms. The kitchen is fitted with all appliances. A Large terrace connects the kitchen and lounge, perfect for breakfast and al-fresco dining/evening relaxation. Many enjoy just sitting on the swing-seat and admiring the view. A true anti-stress remedy.

The garden level includes sun terraces and rustic garden areas where many trees, plants and herbs are grown. With the property is a secure garage for 1 medium sized car/people carrier (other free parking close by). Overall approx 250 m2 + outside space.

The views from the villa itself and all around Ravello - over the sea or inland to the next valley - are truly stunning. The hillsides are covered in terraces that form the famous lemon groves of the Amalfi region. Visible from the terrace are the coastal towns/bays of Minori and Maiori, the hamlet of Torello and the main Amalfi Coast Road. The coast road, running from Sorento to Salerno, is considered one of the best drives in the world (see National Geographic, TripAdvisor, etc). The next best way to experience this road is by local bus. The skill of the bus drivers will amaze.

Ravello is a wonderful place to visit for music lovers with the annual, world-reknowed, Ravello Festival held in the grounds of the palatial Villa Rufolo. The main stage is built so it appears to suspend using the coastline as a dramatic back drop.

Walkers can enjoy the many tracks, routes and steps that take in some spectacular scenery either on the way down the sea or up the hillsides to ancient churches or monasteries. Many steps are the original routes for travelling around the 'Costiera'. The town of Ravello, being set up from the main coast road, retains a more tranquil atmosphere compared to the other towns on the Amalfi Coast. Many traditional activities continue such as lemon cultivation, decorated ceramics and simple fruit/vegetable cultivation. Everywhere you will see fruit trees, grape vines and many different vegetables. Now, with the main road, all the nearby historical sites such as Pompeii and other towns on the Coast are easily reached. Ravello, whilst being conveniently set apart, is in no-way isolated.

Villa Ravello Grecamore has been family owned for almost 50 years. Initially acquired when the only access were steps (250) from the town square, it has be extended and improved over the years. Fully owner-managed and primarily offered on a self catering basis. An informal in-home cook service can be provided for occasional evenings meals for an authentic Italian dining experience. Meals are prepared in the home using local ingredients/recipes.

A perfect location for exploring the Amalfi coast!

  • 5 of 5

We choose this location to celebrate my parents 70th birthday with the family. The owners were very helpful from the start. Before coming to the area, we received a list of activities that we could do, places we should see and shops in the area. When we arrived to the house we were happily surprised to see dinner in the oven and groceries in the refrigerator. The house is perfectly situated in the area. It is very close to Ravello, just a 5 minute stair climb away, and Minori, a 15 min walk down away. We found Ravello the most elegant of the towns. Amalfi, Postiano are close by car and can also be reached easily by ferry. The same ferry can be used to go to Capri, which we did and had a glorious day. The beaches close by are clean and the waters the most beautiful blue we have seen. Within an hour from the house you can also visit Pompeii and Vesuvio. And on the days we wanted to stay at home and relax, we had the best house to do that. The views from the house are glorious, from morning until sunset. And the house is large and clean with many relaxing spots to lounge, enjoy reading, playing games. We couldn’t have found a better house for our vacation. The owners are wonderful renters who are always available when you need them. It is obvious that they love the area and are proud of their house and the area. We are very happy that we were able to experience their area in this exceptional house. We would highly recommend this home to any one going to the area.
