Authentic and refined 1-bedroom apartment rental in Ravello with spectacular views over Italy’s famous Amalfi Coast.
The apartment rental is located in the elegant and sophisticated village of Ravello which sits on a rocky spur high above the Amalfi Coast in southern Italy, about 2 ½ hours south of Rome. A narrow, steep and windy road leads from the SS163 (the main, narrow 2-lane coastal road) up to the village. At the entrance to Ravello you’ll find a public parking lot where you can keep a rental car, but be prepared to pay a “pretty euro” for the privilege – there are not many spots and in high season it may be impossible to secure parking in town. Opt instead for public transportation: take the blue SITA bus (which leaves every hour from the Garden Hotel) to Amalfi (15 minutes), and hop a hydrofoil to Positano (15 minutes), Sorrento (45 minutes), Capri (30 minutes), Salerno (20 minutes), Naples (45 minutes) or Ischia (1 hour). The property is about 7 minutes on foot from the center of Ravello where you can find all essentials (shops, cafés, restaurants, groceries, banks and gas station).
Distances: Amalfi 3.1 miles, Positano 12.4 miles, Salerno 18 miles, Sorrento 24 miles, Naples 40 miles, Rome 198 miles.
From a semi-private pathway at the edge of town a stone stairway leads down 60 steps to the private and secluded estate. There is a short flight of steps from the garden level to the apartment door. Two levels below the apartment’s entrance is a large swimming pool (18m x 9m) to be shared with the 5 other apartments in the villa, and from where you will enjoy views spanning from Villa Rufolo along the Amalfi Coast, toward the Coast of Cilento.
Apartment in a villa; 1st floor (U.S. 2nd); 645 sq ft + terrace.
The apartment is decorated with a mix of antique and contemporary furniture. It boasts a terrace with full views and from which one can enjoy the Wagner concerts played at dusk at the nearby Villa Rufolo. The entry leads to a casual sitting area with open fireplace; French doors lead onto the terrace with built-in banquette seating, folding chairs and a table suitable for evening meals. There is a small but well equipped kitchen (4-burner gas stove, fridge and oven) with window. Down the hallway is a spacious bathroom with shower and double sinks. Further down the hall is a study area with beautiful antique desk and small dining table. At the end of the hall is the bedroom with a small queen size bed and French doors opening onto a narrow balcony with lovely views.
