Casa Orfeo is situated in Minuta, high on one of the spectacular hills of Scala .
Most people visit Ravello for the incredible views, but also the views from Scala are not less. From near the top of Scala in the hamlet of Campidoglio, the panoramic view includes all of Ravello, with the lush green gardens of the Villa Cimbrone at the tip of the promontory, the rugged mountains and coastline and the Bay of Salerno. Here can enjoy one of the Amalfi Coast’s quietest and most stunning views.
The little hamlet of Minuta can be spotted from across the valley in Ravello by the little church dedicated to Santissima Annunziata, this beautiful 11th-century church is thought to be one of the oldest churches in Scala. Minuta deserves its name, which means “small.”
The views from the little piazza next to the church of Minuta are wonderful. Looking down the valley you’ll spot the hamlet of Pontone and the ruins of the church of Sant’Eustachio dating from the 12thcentury. Hikers will enjoy the walk from Minuta to Pontone and continuing down the valley directly to Amalfi or up to the Valle dei Mulini to explore the mountain and visit the ruins of Amalfi’s paper mills.
Shops and restaurant are about 1 Km. away.
The bus stop is just 20 m. away ( Bus to Minuta comes only 2 or 3 times a day ) or in Scala centre (Bus almost every hour ) and from here the SITA Bus line goes to Ravello - 2 Km. and Amalfi - 7 Km.

Particular Notes :
Well located at 5 mn from ravello and 10 from amalfi Superb view onto the coast and ravello Quiet place Very good welcoming from luigi indicating some nice place to eat and drink Car park is somehow easy to find (in sept at least) not far from the flat Bus stop right down the flat if you don t have a car Overall a very good spot to settle and then visit the amalfitaine coast.
Quiet easy access for the place even though you ll have some stairs to go up to the flat you will soon discover this is not a big deal compare to other place you will go for visit
Particular Notes :
Ein wunderschönes Apartment in sehr guter Lage” Wir genossen neben der sehr guten Ausstattung des Apartments besonders den Aufenthalt auf der Terrasse mit dem Blick über Ravello und dem Park der Villa Cimbrone. Für unsere Erkundigungen nutzten wir überwiegend die Busverbindung nach Amalfi (über Ravello) der in der unmittelbaren Nähe vor der Kirche SS. Annunziata im Stadtviertel Minuta bzw. in Scala vor dem Dom hält. Zu beachten ist, dass das Apartment nur nach 80 Stufen über eine vorbeiführende Treppe zu erreichen ist.
Für Anreisende mit dem Auto sei erwähnt, dass man eine Dauerparkkarte („Abbonamenti“) für 20 EUR/Woche erwerben kann. Erhalten in der Touristeninformation in Scala von einem herbeigerufenen Uniformierten

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.<br/>On arrival we were met by the holiday company representative who carefully explained everything we needed to know for our stay.<br/>The double bedroom was lovely with doors opening out into the terrace - you could sit up in bed looking out onto the beautiful view. <br/>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.<br/>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.<br/>The local people are very friendly.
The whole area is very beautiful and the scenery is breathtaking.<br/>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!<br/>A double mattress would have been more comfortable than two singles on the bed but this was a minor consideration.
