Monastero Su Ravello
Location and Surrounding Area
Located in the picturesque village of Scala and overlooking the sea, this elegant five-bedroom villa is the perfect place for a relaxing break on one of the most famous stretches of coastline in the Mediterranean. With a spectacular cliff-top setting facing the Tyrrhenian Sea, it is no wonder the Amalfi Coast is a must-visit destination on everyone's bucket list. The villa is just a stone’s throw away from Ravello. Sitting high in the hills above Amalfi, Ravello is famous for its ravishing gardens and stupendous views.
The Ravello Festival is a classical music festival held in the gardens of Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone, and in a fabulous auditorium designed by Oscar Niemeyer. Villa Rufolo, originally built for the Rufolo family, is a mixture of 13th and 14th-century constructions. It was remodeled in the 19th century by a Scottish enthusiast who preserved the Arabic elements. It is famed for its courtyard with double arches and even more for its tropical gardens, which inspired Wagner’s Parsifal.
Tucked in between mountains and sea, Amalfi is a town best explored on foot. While Piazza Duomo and the main street are home to most of the town’s shops and restaurants, do spend some time wandering and exploring the quieter side streets, where you will find arched passageways, hidden gardens and tiny piazzas. The villa is also a few kilometers from Maiori, which is like an amphithetre at the end of Tramonti valley. Founded in the 9th century and rebuilt after a flood in 1954, today Maiori is a modern town.
The villa is just a stone’s throw away from Vietri sul Mare, a seaside resort exceptionally renowned for its ceramics. The majolica-decorated dome and bell tower of San Giovanni Battista have almost come to symbolize this town overlooking the Bay of Salerno. Cooking utensils, plates, vases and tiles have been made here since the 1400s. In the mid-18th century, Vietri sul Mare became known as the majolica-makers’ district, a suburb of Cava de’ Tirreni.
The villa is also a few kilometers from Positano. The town climbs the hills in steps, with the oldest houses in the upper part of Positano, either faded red or pink, decorated with Baroque stuccoes. Via Pasitea, the traffic-free street going down to the sea, penetrates the atmospheric heart of the town with its narrow stepped alleys, houses with vaulted roofs, terraces and tiny gardens that defy the rock. The bright colored articles Positano is famous for, on display outside the shops, blend well with the pastel-colored houses.
