We arrived in Ravello after driving eight hours from Cinque Terra, tired and a little queasy from the twists and turns along the Amalfi Coast. We couldn't imagine having to navigate the roads each time we wanted to venture out of the town and were wary upon entering the hotel. But the stunning view of the Mediterranean and the beauty of the flowers and fountain in the couryard, combined with the welcoming attitude of the staff, took hold. Antonio , the manager, quickly assured us that we could park the car for the rest of our stay and use buses and boats to get to all of our planned destinations. Over a wonderful glass of local wine, he plotted our itinerary and then proceeded to make all of the arrangements for the most wonderful five day stay in this quaint but sophisticated gem of a village one thousand feet high above the town of Amalfi.
Antonio checked with us daily and instructed us on every minute detail of travel. He made suggestions for hikes, restaurants, performances, and sites to see..all of them excellent. Our "room with a view" (E.M. Forrester frequented Ravello) was comfortable and well appointed. The restaurant served delicious dinners and the included breakfast of pastries, cheeses, yogurt, fruits and marmalades (check out the lemon) started the day on the right foot. We look forward to visiting again. Mille Grazie!
