We were in Italy for a family wedding. With prices beyond our budget, it was looking unlikely that we could make the nuptials in Ravello until we found Giardino dei Limone.
And after a terrible hotel experience in Rome, a white knuckle taxi ride, a journey from hell on public transport only just running thanks to a 9am - 5pm strike (and in Salerno, 9am to whenever we feel like it) our experience at this fantastic B&B restored our faith in humanity.
We tumbled out of the taxi past midnight on the evening of our arrival, at the top of 120 steps with two car sick children, two sulky teenagers, rucksacked and rumpled from seven hours travelling, and fell straight into the arms of the owner who had waited up for us, carried our bags down and escorted us to our beds.
In the morning, the view that greeted us washed away all the trauma of the day before. Even my normally very vocal five year old was lost for words at the sight of the sea and the mountains! That day, he and his sister played in the shaded gardens while we unwound further.
The wedding was in Ravello - which is a good old climb away. We managed it okay, but in the heat of the sun and our posh frocks, we arrived in the square a little worse for wear. Downhill with lots of Prosseco inside us at 3am was much easier - even carrying a sleeping bridesmaid! The steps shouldn't be a problem for anyone with a regular level of fitness, but take your time and take some water.
Overall, this B&B is a real find. The rooms are simple but comfortable, with great beds and a put up bed for kids at no extra cost. There is a washing machine, satellite television, kitchen and free wifi. We'll definately go again.
