“Super Apartment with views to die for”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed in The Loft Apartment for part of our 2 week stay in Scala (also staying in Villa Guiseppina - the Hotel next to the apartment, owned by the same family) The Loft is very cleverly designed for total comfort with a fully equipped kitchen designed by Lorenzo, the chef who owns the apartment. We booked direct with Lorenzo, who was charming and professional at all times - he also arranged our booking for the Hotel too. We hired a car from Naples airport but the staff will arrange transport for you if desired. It was handy to have our own car although we did not use it very much as we walked a lot of the area and there is a good bus service close by. The hotel can also arrange taxis for you. The Loft overlooks the beautiful town of Ravello so the views both night and day are stunning. We walked to Ravello a few times where there is loads to see and do and plenty of good eateries. We also walked down to Amalfi and back but, if you do this take your time as it's steps all the way - in hindsight, the bus back up would have been a sensible option. We also walked to Ravello then down to Minori which was lovely but, again, the walk back up needs to be taken slowly. There are restaurants in Scala within walking distance and a fruit/veg shop, butchers and 2 small supermarkets and a tabacci - but check times of opening as the hours are different to ours. After a swim in the Hotel pool, a chill out and a bit of book reading, we often ate lunch in the hotel bar/eatery which was excellent -Lorenzo cooks specials daily with great, fresh ingredients and together with the local wine or beer and the tremendous view down to the sea from the bar terrace, it made for the most wonderful relaxed experience. This is a family-run concern and it makes for a great holiday as all the family and staff work extremely hard to be welcoming and helpful. It is very rare for my husband and I to stay in one place for so long but we weren't bored for one second and we still didn't get round to going to Capri or Sorrento maybe next time. Would we go back to the Loft? .... Definitely!

“Absolutely the best of Italy”
Reviewed 6 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The Loft is the perfect stay when you need a more than a hotel room. There are plenty of space and a fully equipt kitchen. And a huge balcony overviewing the mountains, Ravello and the coast line all the way to the sea. It's magical.
The staff is so kind and helpful in any way. The surrondings around Villa Giuseppina are so nice with the pool area, bar & restaurant.
We travelled for the first time with our 10 months old baby and we had the best vacation ever staying at apartment The Loft.

Scala is a great location for expirence the Amalfi coast and all of it's wonderful cities.
We personally recommend to visit the Villa Cimbrone in Ravello, getting a pizza at Pontone, walking in the quite town of Minute and visiting the markets in Ravello, Amalfi, Minori and Maiori (different days on a weekly basis).
From Scala, you can easly go to Sorrento or Salerno (beautiful drives along the coast) and take a boat trip to Capri or Positano.

Looking forward seeing you again, Athina & Lorenzo. Ciao.

“A beautiful, modern and cozy appartment overlooking Ravello, Amalfi Coast.”
Reviewed 30 January 2015 for a stay in September 2014

We had our wedding in Ravello in September 2014. Prior to that we took several trips back and forth to Ravello to finalise everything, one being accommodation.

We took a short drive across to Scala to view Villa Guissepina and the minute we walked in we received the most warmest reception. We instantly fell in love with the entire set up which made our decision so much easier.

When our large party checked in several days before the wedding day, even they mentioned how lovely their rooms are, how clean it is and how friendly everyone is and instantly made them feel right at home.

Being the Groom and Bride, we stayed in the apartment for the week while all out guests were below us in the hotel. This apartment is perfect in so many ways!

I can highly recommend staying here if you are visiting Ravello for what ever reason.

“Fantastic Apartment and Perfect for us”
Reviewed 25 January 2015 for a stay in May 2014

We travelled out last May for a wedding and we had a fantastic 10 days. Lorenzo and Athina and family made us feel so welcome and we fell in love with the family, staff, hotel and town.
This is a fantastic apartment and is finished to a high standard while being very comfartable for us. The Amalfi Coast is beautiful and we were close to Ravello. We hired a car so where we were staying was a great base to see everything from.
We would recommend this for families and the warm welcome and treatment we received from everyone means that we hope to be back some day soon!

Thank you Lorenzo and Athina for making our stay so welcome.

“Superb apartment with the best view on the Amalfi Coast”
Reviewed 24 January 2015 for a stay in August 2014

We have stayed here twice now with our two children and had wonderful holidays. The apartment is immaculate with stylish décor and furnishing. The large terrace has the most beautiful view across to Ravello.

The attentive service from Lorenzo and his team is fantastic. They are warm and welcoming and ensure a perfect stay. Lunch at the bar overlooking the pool is stunning. The freshest ingredients are used to create traditional dishes for the specials menu which is varied every single day.

It is conveniently located for Scala and Ravello and is perfectly placed to be used as a base to explore the rest of the Amalfi Coast.
