We traveled here at the end of a 3 week trip in Italy, and it was just what we needed. Relaxation, beautiful views and hiking. The most amazing hostess, Margherite, spoke great english, and was there for us all the way through our stay. She helped us with whatever we needed. One example: There was a laundry machine, and Margherite even offered to hang up our laundry after the washing machine finished. When we arrived back at Villa San Cosma that evening after a wonderful day hiking, our laundry was there for us on the deck, dry. Also, at breakfast she made Capuccino and tea for us, and there were fresh breads, yogurt, fruit and cereal. There is an abundance of fruit on the property, and we were able to pick fruit each day for juicing as well as for snacks. The family also has a great ceramics shop in the village, and we purchased some beautiful plates. Amazing work. Our apartment had a kitchenette that was small but functional, with everything we needed. Bathroom was beautiful, bed very comfortable. We had an outside and inside eating area. We were also welcome to use any other sitting area around the property. Every evening we sat out on the deck in the lounge chairs, overlooking the Amalfi Coast, and enjoyed wine and a few snacks before dinner. Ate each night at Cumpa Cosimo, and were taken care of well by the owner of the restaurant who makes all her own pasta and amazing meals. I had put inquiries into TripAdvisor prior to our stay on the Amalfi coast, and many people were suggesting that we stay in Amalfi or Sorrento during the winter, and to not stay in Ravello. I completely disagree now. We visited Amalfi and Sorrento, and they were much more tourist oriented, and definitely no where near the relaxation quality of Ravello. Now, I would not stay anywhere else on the Amalfi Coast. It was always such a relief to go back to Ravello each day. Quaint, quiet, calm, beautiful. There are buses that ran every 30 min to 1 hour from Ravello to/from Amalfi. We got the bus schedule the 1st day from the tourist info location in Ravello. Also, saw a beautiful classical music concert in Ravello's ampitheater. Hiked the Path of the Gods...amazing. All in all, it was one of our most favorite destinations over our 21 days in Italy. I would definitely recommend Villa San Cosma.
