There are times in your life that you might actually question whether there is a heaven or are you in fact living in 'Heaven' right here on Earth. This question would be immediately resolved when you visit the small township of Ravello on the Italian Amalfi Coast. Heaven is in fact on Earth and it is found in a perfect little village called Ravello.
Of course rather than sleeping upon a cloud one might be lucky enough to select a place that is filled with consideration and brimming with hospitality. We enjoyed the hospitality and friendship that was bestowed upon us for three delightful nights. The hotel is new - do not be disturbed by this as it is an old Villa that has been renovated into a paradise within a paradise. This hotel is the result of hard work by three enthusiastic brothers and a team of pure Italian hospitality. If you are looking for a place to base yourself that is situated in a most convenient location and is filled with personality - both structural and human then Hotel Villa Fraulo is the place to be. The view from their expansive terrace is to die for.
Don't be mistaken, there are many beautiful places to stay on the Amalfi Coast but Ravello would have to be the best. Away from the multitude of tourists in Amalfi & Positano. The winding little streets and alleys, the twists and turns, the breathtaking views without contention. All of these greet you no matter where your journey through Ravello takes you and it is only just a convenient and cheap 20-30 minute bus ride to Amalfi from outside the hotel.
The team of the Hotel Villa Fraulo are amongst the most willing of hosts we have ever encountered and we are certain that our journey will take us back there again. Don't miss this opportunity!
