Rina does say 'there are many steps', don't dismiss these words of warning!
But don't whatever you do let that put you off having a truly wonderful Italian holiday. Rina is there to help in whatever way she can, has great tips and advice and is a sensational cook. We stayed there for 5 days in June and those stairs put us in good stead for hiking in other parts of Italy. It's hard work but we did find out about a bus that stops high above the villa which makes it easier and it is a decent walk into Amalfi.
Would I stay there again, without hesitation, yes. Rina was a fantastic cook and walks into Amalfi each day to buy fresh what she doesn't grow, her Tiramisu was the best we have ever tasted. Superb fresh fish wrapped in lemon leaves, fresh seafood, all amazing.
Breakfast out on the balcony each morning was a great way to start the day. You can watch the little boats going out to fish, the ferries bringing their first load of passengers in and the occasional liner.
It's quiet here, a place to step away from the chaos of Amalfi centre. Wake up in the brass bed, open the shutters and let the sun melt into your bones, it's a wonderful way to start the day. Rina wants to make sure you love Villa Rina as much as she does, it isn't too hard.
Note - any trips booked through Rina require a cash payment when checking out and wi fi could be an issue.
