Ravello is stunning, and Villa Maria is pretty good too! The whole town is cobbled, very quaint, and for the Amalfi Coast, fairy reasonably priced (the hotel and the town). Villa Maria overlooks the coast a few km's away, and the views are amazing. The hotel is a pretty typical Italian villa style, old (in a good way), slightly 'rustic', OK grounds, good restaurant. There is a pool at the sister hotel which any VM guests can use (not so nice as Villa Maria by the look of it from reception / outside). The rooms are a bit old fashioned, but they are clean, cool and comfortable. Most (maybe all) have a small balcony or garden, which is great to relax and take in the scenery. In comparison to other more expensive hotels in Ravella (there are at least three others, which we looked at), I'd say this was very good value - we paid about 220 EUR a night in the middle of August, which I don't think is bad at all. I WILL DEFINATELY be back.
- 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
