“Fantastic Apartments”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2007

Fantastic value apartments, although difficult to find by car. We were dropped off by a friend in a hire car and struggled to find it, (you can't actually see the Apartments from the road). You might see a small sign on the right as you go down the hill saying Via Casa Nova and then you'll have to go down about 100 or so steps from the road to the Apartment entrance, and with your cases, this can be a chore in the hot weather.

The Apartments were excellent though, very clean, with a comfortable bed, good air conditioning units, clean kitchen with water, yoghurts, fruit drinks, jams etc in the fridge, a powerful shower, a few English TV channels, and absolutely stunning views of the bay with your own private terrace with deck chairs, and table/chairs/umbrella for shade.

The owner, Grigorio, was very charming & helpful, and spoke good English.

The main thing to consider here is the amount of steps up into the main town square. About 420 so we were told. I tried to count them but decided that breathing was more important so gave up on this. The steps are tough but are by all means do-able, and certainly justifies eating a big dinner because you can burn it all off on the walk home.

Ravello Town Square is a lovely, quiet spot with a few good restaurants and bars, but really, not much else to see. If we had spent any more than 3 days in Ravello, we'd have been bored. Luckily we had a wedding to attend at Villa Cimbrone, which is a beautiful & peaceful place if you get the chance to visit/eat here.

If you're a lover of ceramics, you'll do well as there are plenty of these shops around, although strangely, we struggled to find anywhere that sold a good choice of food !!?

The alternative to walking into town is of course a 5 minute taxi ride, but we found that taxis were not always available, and some drivers weren't keen on driving such a short trip. Grigorio drove us into town once as he was unable to get us a taxi! If you can get a cab though, they cost 15 euros one way, but money well spent.

All in all, a very peaceful, relaxing place, and for the price of the room, and the beautiful views you get with it, it's well worth going up the steps.

The most amazing location to view part of the Amalfi coast. The apartments are very clean and well maintained. The sofa beds are not the best but the location makes up for it.

The only problem are the steps to get anywhere! 417 of the things to climb up to ravello itself and more to go down to the coast. Ideally this apartment is suited to car drivers or reasonably fit walkers/ travellers. 15 Euros to get a taxi down from the bus stop or loads of walking with cases / packs.

Still amazingly beautiful and would go back !

Although this b&b was a good long walk from Ravello (and not for the unfit!), it was in a lovely location. The sofa bed we had was a little uncomfortable, but the apartment was clean, spacious and very well equiped.

This is a view to die for. Room was great. Can be complicated to find, but owner answered cell phone and found us two blocks away. Parked car for visit. Bus works great in the area. Owner very helpful. Very romantic stay. Highly recommended. Just be prepared to climb some steps to the city center.
