One of the outstanding features is that all main rooms and outside spaces have wonderful sea views over the Bay of Salerno.
The accommodation includes: large lounge/dining room; 5 bedrooms (2 x double bed, 1 x twin single, 2 x single); 3 bathrooms. The kitchen is fitted with all appliances. Both the lounge/diner and kitchen have access to a large terrace, perfect for breakfast and al-fresco dining/evening relaxation.
Many enjoy just sitting on the swing-seat and admiring the view. A true anti-stress remedy.
The garden level includes sun terraces and rustic garden areas where many trees, plants and herbs are grown.
With the property is a secure garage for 2 medium sized cars (or 1 people carrier-sized).Overall approx 250 m2 + outside space.
The views from the villa itself and all around Ravello - over the sea or inland to the next valley - are truly stunning. The hillsides are covered in terraces that form the famous lemon groves of the Amalfi region. Visible from the terrace are the coastal towns/bays of Minori and Maiori, the hamlet of Torello and the main Amalfi Coast Road. The coast road running from Sorento to Salerno is considered one of the best drives in the world (see National Geographic, TripAdvisor, etc). The next best way to experience this road is by local bus. The skill of the bus drivers will amaze.
Ravello is a wonderful place to visit for music lovers with the annual Ravello Festival held in the grounds of the palatial Villa Rufolo. The main stage is built so it appears to suspend using the coastline as a dramatic back drop.
Walkers can enjoy the many tracks, routes and steps that take in some spectacular scenery either on the way down the sea or up the hillsides to ancient churches or monasteries. Many steps are the original routes for travelling around the 'Costiera'.
The town of Ravello, being set up from the main coast road, retains a more tranquil atmosphere compared to the other towns on the Amalfi Coast. Many traditional activities continue such as lemon cultivation, decorated ceramics and simple fruit/vegetable cultivation. Everywhere you will see fruit trees, grape vines and many different vegetables. Now, with the main road, all the nearby historical sites such as Pompei and other towns on the Coast are easily reached. Ravello, whilst being conveniently set apart, is in no-way isolated.
Villa Ravello Grecamore has been family owned for almost 50 years. Initially acquired when the only access were steps from the town square, it has be extended and improved over the years. Fully owner-managed and primarily offered on a self catering basis. An informal in-home cook service can be provided for occasional evenings meals for an authentic Italian dining experience. Meals are prepared in the home using local ingredients/recipes.

The Campania region
Located on the Italian Peninsula, with the Mediterranean Sea to the west, it includes the small Flegrean Islands and Capri, is a region brimming with culture, gastronomy and beauty. Naples is the regions capital city.
Throughout much of its history Campania has been at the center of Western civilization's most significant entities. The area was colonised by Ancient Greeks and was within Magna Græcia, until the Roman Republic began to dominate. During the Roman era the area was highly respected as a place of culture by the emperors, where it balanced Greco-Roman culture. The area had many duchies and principalities during the Middle Ages, in the hands of the Byzantine Empire and some Lombards.
It was under the Normans that the smaller independent states were brought together as part of a sizable European kingdom, known as the Kingdom of Sicily, before the mainland broke away to form the Kingdom of Naples. It was during this period that especially elements of Spanish, French and Aragones culture touched Campania. Later the area became the central part of the Two Sicilies under the Bourbons, until the Italian unification of 1860 when it became part of the new state Italy.
The name of Campania itself is derived from Latin, as the Romans knew the region as Campania felix, which translates into English as "fertile countryside".
Today the Campania region offers much for a holiday or visit: natural sights such as the Amalfi Coast, Mount Vesuvius, the island of Capri, the archaeological and ancient sites of Pompeii, Herculaneum, Paestum and Velia and not forgetting the amazing gastronomy,
Ravello, located at the top of the Dragone Valley and in addition to proving many amazing views of the valleys and sea, contains some beautiful architecture. For many years Ravello has been charming visitors many of whom artists of all nnationalities. Some notable artist include Boccaccio, and Wagner.
Ravello was founded by the Roman aristocracy in the 10th century and gained wealth and prominence through trade across the Mediterranean with wool and cotton. Part of the powerful Maritime Republic of Amalfi the Ravello continued to enjoy prosperity until the Norman domination. Ravello fall from importance was furthered even more with the Pisan invasion in 1337, which deprived the entire Amalfi Coast of its independence, and political power.
Today Ravello has rediscovered its confidence and identity and provides a traquil destination whilst still being in the heart of the Costiera Almalfitana. The views are stunning: the rugged coastline, the sea, the lemon groves.
Some notable architecture in Ravello are Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo. These buildings perfectly represent the architectural style which is typical throughout the major centres found on the Amalfi Coast.
The town has served historically as a destination for artists, musicians, and writers, including Richard Wagner, M. C. Escher, Giovanni Boccaccio, Virginia Woolf, Gore Vidal,André Gide and Sara Teasdale who mentioned it in her prefatory dedication in Love Songs, one of her many books of poems.
Every year in the summer months, the "Ravello Festival" takes place with an International mix of Artists and performances. The festival began in 1953 in honour of the composer Richard Wagner, one of Ravello’s more famous visitors.

"Excellent villa in the beautiful location of Ravello"
Stayed for two weeks in June and it was fantastic. Easily fit two family's in generously large 3 level villa. Two lovely terraces to view the Amalfi coast, one in the shade with beautiful vines to keep you cool. A few minutes to the centre of Ravello an also some great walks down to the coast. Would thoroughly recommend this villa and will be staying again.

"Beautiful house, well kept, large spacious rooms, amazing balcony views spectacular."
When we arrived we knew we had stumbled upon a special place to stay, the house is beautifully maintained and the owners very welcomining. The views from the balcony were spectacular from early morning overlooking Maiori and Minori beaches and mountain scenery too, it just took your breath away. We enjoyed cooking and eating on the balcony. There are steps to climb into Ravello and we got better at managing these good exercise. There is parking if you hire a car, but I would recommend the bus service and boats from Amalfi to get around and its very cheap. Get a taxis to and from the airport as driving is a nightmare around Amalfi.
