About The Experience
Recently renovated and tastefully furnished, this spacious Amalfi Coast holiday accommodation will allow you to experience the charm of Ravello, and the beauty of Italy's famed Amalfi Coast. Though you will have plenty to see and do within Ravello, you can also take a bus down to Amalfi and the beaches, or walk to the coast on foot for a lovely, scenic stroll. In fact, from this Ravello villa rental there are endless opportunities for meandering through picturesque villages and the countryside filled with lemon trees.
Location Description

The coast between Reggio and Gaeta is the most beautiful in Italy, and one of the most enchanting spots along the coastline is Ravello. High above the Amalfi Coast, the elegant and aristocratic town of Ravello sits on a 350 foot rocky spur. Offering magnificent palazzos, churches, and gardens bearing witness to its noble history, Ravello’s rich cultural life complements an unmatched, striking beauty. This apartment is conveniently situated only 1.5 km from the main square, within walking distance of the bus stop and taxi stand, ATM, post office, bank, pharmacy, and food shops. You can relax to some of the multiple weekly classical music concerts, or go sightseeing at the old estate gardens, Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone. One of the most important monuments is the Cathedral, founded in 1086, but there is also the church of San Giovanni del Toro, the churches of Santa Maria a Gradillo and Santissima Annunziata, Villa Episcopio, and the Piazza Fontana Moresca. Catch the train in Salerno, or take the bus to one of the fabulous beaches, only 20 minutes away. Take the bus down the hill to Amalfi, where you can rent a boat to explore the coastline, or allow someone else to steer the boats and hydrofoils, as you travel between Positano, Sorrento, Capri, and Salerno.

Please Note: While the Amalfi Coast is beautiful and charming, it is also steep, with many uphill and downhill stairs and walkways. In general, it is an area that is not kind to those of us with knee or mobility issues. This should be considered before booking a property in this area.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
The property view is amazing. Generally its very well equipped and comfortable. The location is great and very handy to transport and facilities. Don't recommend bringing a car as roads in the region are extremely difficult.
Enjoyed Most:
Definitely the view and Ravello is without doubt one of the best towns in region.
Enjoyed Least:
That we could not take advantage of the views from the veranda as the door did not open and was not fixed during our stay.
Surrounding Area:
The town of Ravello is excellent with great restaurants and public transport to most areas in the region.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Ravello is about 10 minutes easy walk from the property to the center of the town (excluding the 80 odd steps to the top) of the property.
Tips or Restaurants:
The roads in the region are extremely narrow and the local drivers are very aggressive in their driving tactics. Best to leave car and take advantage of public transport to most towns in region. The property has all you need for cooking and comfort and is in great location for utilizing all the facilities Ravello has to offer.
Directions:
We used a Navman and did have difficulty locating the meeting place. The office is located above the pharmacy on the right as you drive into Ravello. Be warned. It is a road closed at end to traffic; do not use lower road if suggested by your GPS.

Overall:
Absolutely perfect! This is my second visit to Casa Blu and this time I bought different friends, who immediately fell in love with the place. The view is to die for and the location is wonderful, expecially for those that don't mind a bit of a walk.
Enjoyed Most:
The view!
Enjoyed Least:
Carrying suitcases up the steps.
Surrounding Area:
Ravello is the perfect place from which to visit the Amalfi coast area. The town is quaint, interesting, and yet it is way less crowded than the cities of Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento. It also an excellent place to hike - challenging as the hikes are, they are wonderful for those in good shape.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Ravello and yes, a fairly easy walk - 15 minutes to the main piazza.
Tips or Restaurants:
Villa Maria is our favorite restaurant, especially for lunch. A bit upscale and a wonderful view.
Directions:
We did not use GPS. The place is not easy to find for those new to it. I would say use the petrol station as a landmark. The villa is about 100 yards up hill from there.
Check In Out:
Daniella was wonderful! It is best to be able to call or text an Italian number. She was there within minutes of our text.

Overall:
The apartment was quite beautiful with an exceptional view. We sent photos to our friends and they all want to go there! We were surprised to find 3 bedrooms (we asked for 2) and 2 bathrooms (we expected 1). Also we did not expect a washing machine and a dish washer.
Enjoyed Most:
The view was spectacular!
Enjoyed Least:
The bathrooms.
Surrounding Area:
The town of Ravello was very enjoyable with the scenery, ability to take public transportation to other towns, good restaurants and nice people.
Nearby Events or Locales:
We were in the town of Ravello but were able to travel to Amalfi within 20 minutes.
Tips or Restaurants:
Two good restaurants in Ravello: the Garden on Via Boccaccio was 4-star and Salvatore also on Via Boccaccio was 5-star gourmet.
Directions:
RentVillas arranged to have a car pick us up at the airport and that went off without a hitch.
Check In Out:
There were no issues with the check-in/out process. Be prepared to pay the security deposit in cash along with the cleaning fee and electricity consumption.
