We didn't stay at the Villa Maria Hotel in Ravello but we did linger over lunch actually longer than we thought because I asked her if she'd brought her purse and then after a breathess climb up the hill she said she had forgotten it. Never mind. This was a fairly traditional Italian lunch spot but with loads of character and a range of choices-seafood, pasta, the usual staples. What makes it perfect is the fabulous sea view and warm and friendly staff. It's about 20 minutes walk from the cathedral square but well worth the climb which in any case takes you a further 10 minutes away to fabulous ornate gardens. Just remember to bring your wallet or purse or you'll end up with one of you doubling the walking time back to the hotel.
- 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. 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
