It would be difficult to exaggerate the appeal of this family-run hotel built into the cliffs between Amalfi and Ravello. It combines simplicity with absolute pleasure. No request is too difficult for the owners and staff. We stayed a week and after a day felt like part of the family, from Nicola showing our 2-year old the permanent nativity scene while we were having dinner, to the grandparents insisting on time with Daniel every time we passed through reception, to Emiliano carting our luggage up and down the vertiginous steps. The recommendations for local restaurants and arrangements for things like a motorboat to Capri for the day were all spot-on. The rooms are simple, but comfortable - with nothing but a balcony and a couple of deck chairs between you and the sea far below, you don't need a lot of interior design. The food is wonderful, with a true sense of its place. Amalfi itself and its beach is a 10 minute walk away and busses serving the coast road (much easier than our rented car) stop right outside the hotel. We would easily return.
