The views, the owner, the relaxation, the city... it's just an incredible place. Roberto runs a truly wonderful place. It was such a joy to talk to him and hear about his background. Breakfast was delicious and just perfect on the terrace. The room was such a sweet gem - just perfect. And this was the only place we stayed on our honeymoon that gave us a little extra treat for the special occasion! Roberto welcomed us with a sparkling bottle of wine. AND after we asked him about his family run vineyard, he let us try his (delicious) red wine. He could not have been more helpful, friendly, or accommodating. Can you tell we loved it here? We walked up the steps to Ravello one day and walked down to Atrani and Amalfi the next. They were hikes for sure, but well worth it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The name "Punta Civita "draws it's origin from it's spectacular location on the Gulf which today hosts many tourists from all over the world but at one time served as a lookout to guard from the invasions of the Saraceni. " Civita " is indeed noted in historical documents from the year 876 when it made part of the "Castellum de Supramonte "first defense outpost on the sea of the city of Ravello Once the original building of a wine cellar dating back to the 19th century, rooms were added using ancient construction techniques in the early 1960s. Thus was born a typical Mediterranean home overlooking the gulf, amidst lemon groves, grape vines and typical flowers and vegetation of the Amalfi Coast. The floors and tiles are handmade ceramics from Vietri, family antique furniture and artifacts adorn each room, while careful attention has been paid to every detail, it is the passion and personal warmth of the owners that transformed this house into a B& B in 2003. One of our guests, Francesca N. put it best when she sent this memory to us after her stay: "Punta Civita is a small paradise! It is like brilliant emerald stone set in a cliff. The rooms are both beautiful and spacious and Roberto's genuine warm hospitality is like non other on the Amalfi Coast. The mild climate, the scenic, panoramic views from the terrace, the good food and friendly embrace of the owners all contribute to making this B&B a wonderful spot to visit now and then so as not to lose sight of the things that matter in this phrenetic life!
