We are eager to share with those of you who value wonderful experiences…Villa Maria
My wife and I have lived in Italy for many years and enjoy getting away once and a while to escape ‘reality.' We discovered Villa Maria some time ago while strolling along one of the many cobblestone paths of Ravello, after a summer concert. Attracted by the beautiful garden terrace, we popped our heads in and were impressed by its character and beauty. Many years later, the memory still lingered, we finally made our reservation and stepped into what has become one our most treasured memories. The experience Villa Maria offers in quality, service, elegance and cuisine is at the level of any top European Relais, but at an affordable price.
Villa Maria is a place suspended in time; a villa devoted to meeting the high standards of an Italian noble family. The current owners, with pride and great effort, successfully preserve this home with its enchanting atmosphere, solid wood banisters, ornate silvers, antique mirrors, amazing antique chandeliers and Vietri tiles, all of a workmanship that today no longer exists. The room numbers are more like #2, or room # 5, not 232 or 541! But you will hear nothing outside beyond soft music and birds in the garden; they have a great regard for their guests’ privacy.
Their staff is young, energetic and respectful; they are available to offer the modern services of the best international getaways, probably without helicopter services, but with the personal touch that makes all the difference. You feel that behind them is the guidance of an experienced, well structured family business and the personalized attention only a family run business can give. You are treated as though you have been invited by a wonderful family as a most prestigious guest, pampered and treated consistently with courtesy, and a desire to make your stay one of great pleasure.
The restaurant merits its own compliments. The cuisine is excellent, above any we have tried in Ravello. The chef is talented; the service superb. It is comparable to the best we’ve experienced on the Amalfi Coast.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated in the historic centre between the Clarisse nunnery and S. Francis Convent, in a restful aristocratic area so much as to be chosen, the only hotel in the area, by the French guide-book "Relais du Silence" as an oasis of peace and by the Italian "Charme e Relax" as Ravello's pearl. Villa Maria assures his guests in addition to maximum tranquillity also the most services including the parking of nearby Hotel Giordano (of the same property) where it is possible to park for free the car and take advantage of free luggage handling and of the swimming pool (parking and swimming pool situated at the sister HOtel Giordano, approx. 5 Minutes walking distance). Rich and interesting is the history of this villa which was roman noble Marquis de Cinque family's manor, an history which blends with Ravello's and the Amalfi Coast's. The structure, while preserving the elegant forms of a lordly mansion, in the years has undergone noteworthy redecorations which have fashioned its actual splendour. ... more less
