A fantastic wee place, hidden down rather alot of steps! Beautiful views from our room (113) of the sea and over towards Maiori. 1km walk from Amalfi but it was no problem for us to walk although public transport stops outside the Villa. The food was really good and we loved Nicola and his staff , all very friendly and even let us have breakfast 15 mins early when we were booked onto trips to Pompeii and Capri. Breakfast consisted of freshly squeezed orange juice (which i really miss!), rolls and croissants with butters/jams and yoghurts, tea or coffee - it was plenty for us. Dinner was fresh pasta with either seafood or vegetarian sauce, fish or meat main and then finally a delicious homemade cake. Couldnt fault the food.
As it was our honeymoon they had fresh flowers in our room and a bottle of prosecco for us for the first night's dinner.
It is a bit of a jaunt, climbing all the steps in the morning but the staff helped us with our case at the beginning and end of the holiday. We had to be at Naples Airport at 10am and there is a bus into Naples at 0625 from right outside San Michele's door - it is worth knowing this as the bus cost 4 EUR per person (plus another 4 EUR from Naples to the airport) and a taxi 110 EUR.
we love showing people our video of walking down all the steps through the beautiful terraces of flowers and the stunning views.
We took the bus up to Ravello and walked down - it is a bit hard-going on the knees as some of the steps are big! Ravello is a lovely place and worth going to see the Villa Ruffelo. Also take a sea trip to see the coast line from the sea as it is difficult to get it into perspective on land.
Hope to return - best wishes to Nicola and his family and staff!
