"A wonderful holiday in a fantastic setting!" Sheelagh Cooney May 2012
Particular Notes :
This was a lovely apartment with a lovely spacious terrace which looked out onto a fabulous view of the amalfi Coast, Ravello and the Villa Cimbrone.
On arrival we were met by the holiday company representative who carefully explained everything we needed to know for our stay.
The double bedroom was lovely with doors opening out into the terrace - you could sit up in bed looking out onto the beautiful view.
The walk up and down the 80 or so steps to the apartment and half-mile walk into the village of Scala kept us fit! We did not hire a car but had no trouble getting around as the buses are cheap and fairly frequent. We walked into the pretty little town of Ravello a couple of times with no problems.
The village of Scala is a lovely little place; it is not touristy but has a several shops which will provide for most of your needs and a nice little cafe in the square with a couple of nice places to eat. We ate in Ristorante de Cavialieri a couple of times; the food was lovely and the service very good.
The local people are very friendly.
The whole area is very beautiful and the scenery is breathtaking.
We are definitely going back to this lovely place. We loved everything about
The apartment was spacious and well equipped although a hair dryer would be a useful addition!
A double mattress would have been more comfortable than two singles on the bed but this was a minor consideration.
