Casa di Ravello ***
Ravello - Amalfi Coast
Casa di Ravello is a comfortable and spacious apartment just outside the outskirts of Ravello. It stands in an enviable and peaceful setting and faces stunning views of verdant, terraced lemon groves and vineyard cut into the rock which slope down to the coastline with Maiori and Minori bays below. This independent villa is quite modern and is on 2 floors. It is reached by descending 120 steps from the road and through a pretty garden and paved terrace which extends around the house . The owners , during the summer week-ends , occasionally occupy the apartment on the first level while the property for rent is on the ground level.
