Garden house is a lovely rental home that is part of a small villa built in a dominating position almost at the top of the rocky spur on which the town of Ravello stretches, sheer above the sea. It situated at a walkable distance of the town’s little centre and his highlights such as the stunning gardens of Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone , the Cathedral , etc
The house is spacious, quiet and comfortable
The real magic of the house is the 450sqm flat garden with a never-ending panorama of Ravello, of the coastline and of the surrounding few small, old towns and villages that are scattered along the green arena of Monti Lattari and the narrow Valle del Dragone ( a valley that separates Ravello from Scala ) , which have beautifully tended gardens and terraced fields and end at the sea.
The views are spectacular and equivalent to those of the much more lavishly-priced hotels in the area.
A glass of wine or a cold Limoncello while admiring such a beautiful private view is a memory you will not forget.
The interiors are extremely airy and tastefully furnished with a mixture of traditional, elegant and modern fittings, all to an excellent criteria to offer all you need for great holidays.
Serene and peaceful, Garden house is perfect for a romantic couple's getaway or a small group seeking a place to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Amalfi Coast.
There are nature paths next to the house’s door, which allow guests to reach Amalfi or Minori on foot, starting from a point high up in the hills, suspended between the sky and the sea where Ravello is situated. If you like walking, these are walks not to be missed: at every step brief glimpses of breathtaking views open up in front of your eyes and these will become unforgettable memories that will stay in your heart after your holiday has ended
A car is not necessary here , the local bus service is excellent and is a cheap and a great way to get around the area if you don't want to drive. The SITA bus stop with a regular service to Amalfi is 10 minutes away from the house .
A car is useful for those keen on going a little further a field to Pompeii , Naples etc..
