Hotel Villa Maria is located less than 10 minutes walking to the center of Ravello. For those that have never been to Amalfi coast or Ravello, this town is one of the 3 UNESCO towns that represent the Amalfi coast and probably one of the most attractive destinations on the Amalfi Coast. The town features many winding cobblestone streets, with many stairs, lunch gardens and stunning views on the Mediterranean. The perfect place for romantic couples wishing to relax and are looking for high quality lodging.
Ravello and Hotel Villa Maria are perched high on the mountains above the Amalfi coast looking out over the villages of Pontone and Scala as well as the Mediterranean coast. Ravello is mostly known for its classical music festivals that are held every year in the gardens of Villa Rufolo. The dreamlike setting of these gardens inspired Wagner and many other musicians. If there is a concert in Ravello, you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to attent one. The combination of scenery and music creates a memorable and special atmosphere. From Hotel Villa Maria it is easy reaching all these spots on foot. However, we do need to state that walking in Ravello requires a bit of a fit body as there are many stairs and cobbled streets going up and down.
Hotel Villa Maria is housed in a historic building that used to belong to a Roman noble man. The place has been totally refurbished throughout the decades and now offers a sort of Art Deco ambiance. The service and hospitality come at a high level and you will surely feel at home here.
