Gaze at spectacular views of Ravello, the coastline and the mountains from this tri-level villa perched at the end of a promontory in a beautiful medieval hamlet. The exquisitely landscaped grounds are surrounded by old stone walls, which give the property the feeling of a gracious mini-estate. Enjoy a swim high above the crystal blue coastline or walk one of the many mountain trails. The nearby paths lead to seldom-visited hamlets, small chapels
and medieval ruins with stunning views over the coast and the valleys below.
The villa is a short walk from the heart of Scala, a medieval hilltop village with coffee bars, restaurants, open-air cafes, a grocery shop and the stop for the SITA bus that goes from Scala to Ravello, Amalfi and other coastal destinations. The oldest town on the Amalfi Coast, Scala runs along Dragon Valley, right above Amalfi and adjacent to Ravello. The walking routes to Scala and Ravello are shared with cars but can still be navigated on foot.
From the quay of Amalfi, there are ferries and hydrofoils to the other villages along the coast as well as to the Islands of Capri and Ischia, and to Sorrento and Naples. Boats rentals are available for those who wish to explore the surrounding coastline, and visit the many small grottoes.
Please Note: While the Amalfi Coast is beautiful and charming, it is also steep, with many uphill and downhill stairs and walkways. In general, it is an area that is not kind to those of us with knee or mobility issues. This should be considered before booking a property in this area
