“An oasis of peace with spectacular views. The piece de resistance is the glorious dining terrace with vistas of the mountains sweeping down to a glittering sea. Fantastic food and cookery lessons using the same home-grown produce. A delightful spot for foodies and romantics. ”

Hotel Review

Almost everyone who stays at this enchanting old villa – “Ravello’s pearl” – falls so completely for it that they keep coming back. Chief among its charms is the glorious dining terrace, where you can enjoy lunch or dinner with the vista of mountains sweeping down to a glittering sea as a magnificent backdrop. The food is a close second: first-rate organic ingredients (including vegetables from the villa’s own garden), quite superbly cooked. Popular and highly regarded cookery courses are run here, using the same home-grown produce. Inside the villa, the traditional decoration, solid furniture and potted plants strike just the right note. Owner Vincenzo Palumbo is charming and hands-on; his staff are courteous and caring.
