This was our first holiday on our own as a couple since parenthood and we wanted to return to magical Ravello. We did a fair amount of research and hoped that the Villa Maria would be the right choice and it was.
The superior room was worth the cost for the view and we would especially recommend the half board dining option which, although had much less choice than the a la carte, represented great value for money when comparing all the restaurants in the town.
The food was really excellent and the accommodation was typically Italian quirky but clean and spacious. All the staff were friendly and helpful, advising on bus times etc and wine choice in the restaurant.
A fantastic visit and we would certainly stay at Villa Maria again.
Personal tip- don't hire a car. We didn't this time and got a taxi from Naples airport then walked or used the buses locally during our stay. To drive/park on the Amalfi Coast and surrounding area is not for the faint hearted and for us would have ruined a truly relaxing and enjoyable break!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated in the historic centre between the Clarisse nunnery and S. Francis Convent, in a restful aristocratic area so much as to be chosen, the only hotel in the area, by the French guide-book "Relais du Silence" as an oasis of peace and by the Italian "Charme e Relax" as Ravello's pearl. Villa Maria assures his guests in addition to maximum tranquillity also the most services including the parking of nearby Hotel Giordano (of the same property) where it is possible to park for free the car and take advantage of free luggage handling and of the swimming pool (parking and swimming pool situated at the sister HOtel Giordano, approx. 5 Minutes walking distance). Rich and interesting is the history of this villa which was roman noble Marquis de Cinque family's manor, an history which blends with Ravello's and the Amalfi Coast's. The structure, while preserving the elegant forms of a lordly mansion, in the years has undergone noteworthy redecorations which have fashioned its actual splendour. ... more less
