The pool is situated just across the street from the villa and 70 steps from the road, and is shared with the other 5 villas in the complex. Each guest has his or her own sun lounger and towel.

The pool is open from the end of March to the end of October, weather permitting.

Beautiful inside and out

Villa Principessa is one of the finest villas in Ravello and on the whole of the Amalfi Coast. In fact, despite having been completely renovated and equipped with every modern comfort, the villa still conserves much of its late eighteenth century charm.

The entrance is on the street level; from here you enter to a '''small reception area''' which, on the left, opens onto the large and '''prestigiously furnished sitting-room''' and, on the right, the stairs which lead to the other two floors.

On the first floor, there are two bedrooms decorated with original period pieces. The first has an ensuite bathroom with chromotherapy shower and is completely frescoed. The second is finely and elegantly furnished and has its own adjoining bathroom with shower and Jacuzzi bath tub, embellished with the precious original glazed 'cotto' tiles from Vietri.

On this floor there is also a wardrobe area.

On the second floor, there is an elegant mansard, comprised of a double bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchenette and a small private sea view terrace.

On the lower floor, there is a spacious dining-room, modern kitchen and a bathroom with shower.

Don't want to cook? Request the services of a personal chef and sit back and relax instead!

From this floor, you enter the villa's garden-terrace, furnished with tables, chairs and sun-loungers.

With its enchanting views and luxurious outdoor furniture, the garden-terrace provides the perfect venue in which to host an unforgettable, candlelit dinner.

The villa is surrounded by a splendid park full of flowers and, in common with other three houses, has access to the sea (about 120 steps) and a bathing-platform.

Parking is available at the daily rate of Euro 18,00.

Rental period can start and finish any day (according to the availability).

Minimum Stay: Only 3 nights.

Italy in Style

  • 5 of 5

Wow!!! What an amazing vacation. We had such a wonderful experience. Mr. Vincenzo and his staff were incredible. He was so communicative and accommodating. I have already decided we are going back next year as well. The pictures on the website are beautiful, but there are no words to describe the actual beauty this home offers. Villa Principessa is breathtaking, the view is incredible, and the town of Minori could not be any cuter nor the locals any friendlier. From the Sea Bass at Il Giardiniello to the cakes at Gambardella, this sweet spot has much to offer for those who want to experience true Italian cuisine. You can finish your evening with a Limoncello at the Midnight Sun. Be sure to ask for Antonio. There are so many terrific boutiques and shops -- both high end and everyday prices. This was an experience that will be remembered always with big smiles stretched across our faces! I highly recommend Amalfi Vacation and Mr. Vincenzo. I have to place a quick shout out to the amazing Franco. You'll see why once you get there with all your luggage. Grazie!!!! A+++++

We stayed at the Villa Principessa from October 10 to the 15th. The Villa is lovely, but if stairs are hard for a person to navigate, then this is not the villa for you. That being said and the fact that we were all good with stairs, this villa offers beautiful views and lots of room for travellers to be together but still have their own space. It should be noted that the pool is not attached to the villa. You have to walk down the road to the apartment complex and then up about 5 flights of stairs to access the pool...which is not just yours to use, the apartment residents use it as well. This being said we did not use the pool, rather we walked down the 80 or so steps to the swim platform and swam right in the Mediterranean...just make sure you have everything you need as the walk back up for a bottle opener to open your beer can be painful haha!! Vincenzo is wonderful to email and communicate with and was very helpful in arranging private car services for our group as well as suggesting everything from restaurants to walking tours. The only complaint that our group had with the Villa was the lack of towels. Fresh towels should be brought either every other day to the guests, or enough towels need to be left so that guests can use clean towels every other day. As it is was for our stay, guests are not allowed to wash the towels and we were only left one towel per/person for the 5 days...thankfully we had the pool towels to use as well. If the Villa admin takes this into consideration, I would book this villa again in a heartbeat. The location is a nice short walk to Minori and a quick 20 min. taxi ride to Mairoi or Revello.

Owner's Response: Dear Mrs Becky, Thanks for your positive feedback, we are really happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. Anyway, we wish to clarify a couple of things: - What you wrote about the pool is also precised in the villa description online, so we presume that you were already aware about this. - The towels: we provide a towel set for each guest, each set consists of a small, medium/large towel + 1 pool/beach towel. So, each guest has 4 towels, all provided on the arrival. Anyway, if our guests need some extra towels, there is no problem, we are always available to provide new towels on request (included in the price). We also take the opportunity to precise that we include a linens/towels change + light cleaning of the villa for stays at least of 6 nights while you spent with us only 5 days unfortunately. We look forward to welcome you once again, we hope for more than 5 nights! All the best Vincenzo

Beautiful property with unforgettable views!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Principessa is a stunning property, we absolutely loved it. The pictures look almost too good to be true... but believe them! In fact it's even better in reality! As others have commented, Vincenzo and Franco are absolutely amazing. They are incredibly responsive, attentive and genuinely very dedicated to making sure we had a great time! At one point I sent Vincenzo an email asking where we might purchase mosquito repellent and within 10 minutes Franco appeared with some in hand! Vincenzo also helped us arrange taxis to/from some of the nearby towns, so it was no problem that we did not have a car of our own. The villa itself has a lot of stairs, but every step is worth it for the dramatic views! Definitely go down and spend some time at the villa's ocean platform as well as the shared infinity pool above the lemon trees. My father is 73 so the stairs were tough but he did them several times to enjoy what have to be some of the best views of the Mediterranean. We also visited Sorrento, Positano, Ravello and Amalfi during our trip, but I think the town of Minori (10min walk from the villa) was our absolute favorite. It's much less crowded than the more popular tourist towns, everything was so reasonably priced and the food was so fresh! We bought heaps of seafood at the local fish market for dinner and it only cost 35 Euro to feed 6 people. Vincenzo also helped us arrange Chef Michela and her 2 daughters to come cook for us. That was one of our best meals in Italy. All of their food is sourced either from their own gardens or from Minori. We highly recommend that experience, too!

Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The Villa Principessa is beautiful, very well kept and very comfortable. Eight of us enjoyed dining on the terrace, relaxing seaside on the platform and swimming in the calm cool water. The rooftop infinity pool in the middle of a garden of lemon trees, fig trees and tomato and basil plants provides an awesome view of the sea far below. A ten minute walk from the town of Minori...great food and shopping (especially Café Europa-Anna and her family take excellent care of their guests). Vincenzo and Franco were the perfect managers as they were always available to us if we had any questions about the property, restaurant recommendations and transportation. Dinner at their sister property the Santa Caterina Hotel was one of the best meals we have ever had. Our table was on the patio overlooking the sea on a beautiful moonlit evening. An unforgettable trip of a lifetime.

Villa Principessa is beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is historic and beautiful. It is 4 stories in total, so lots of steps! The access to the sea (around 150 steps away) was very nice to experience. Having the pool (a short walk up the road and around 100 steps up) was also a great place to relax and cool off. We were a family of four for the trip and my eldest daughter (14) used the top room (like a separate apartment) and really enjoyed that. The whole place was very well equipped and we enjoyed it immensely. The walk to town along the roadside takes some getting used to, as the front door opens up right onto the main road. However, there are lots of people walking that road. Close access to Amalfi and Positano, and 1100 steps to Ravello, with the closest town being Minori (10 mins away on foot). Relaxing and wonderful and Vincenzo and his team were extremely helpful.

Too short a stay at Villa Principessa

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding property with outstanding support, Franco is possibly :) the best property manager in Italy. (When you meet him you will understand).

Pluses: direct access to the Sea, short walk to Minori for food etc. in summer, fresh fruit (figs, pears, etc. ) and vegetables (tomatoes, egg plant) as well as pick it yourself Basil allow for OUTSTANDING quick self made meals.

Take advantage of the boat tour of Capri and the surround area, well worth the cost.

Both, Pre, and during our trip the management team met and often exceeded my hopes to provide an outstanding visit for our party of 10.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Naples Capodichino at 35 Miles Nearest Barpub : at 0.3 Miles Nearest Ferry : at 0.3 Miles Nearest Train : Salerno at 13 Miles Nearest Motorway : Vietri Sul Mare at 10.5 Miles Nearest Restaurant : at 0.3 Miles Nearest Beach : at 0.3 Miles Car: not necessary

Our Villa Principessa, is situated in one of the most panoramic and suggestive areas of the Amalfi Coast, Marmorata, the part of Ravello nearest the sea; the location is strategic: infact, even if it's in the area of Ravello, Amalfi town is at only 1.5 miles/2.4 km far (about 7-8 minutes by car or bus; the bus stop is at few meters from the building): Amalfi is the most important town along the coast also in terms of public transportation system, but ferries for Capri, Amalfi and Positano leave also from the charming village of Minori a short walk from our complex (7-8 minutes) where you can find also sandy beaches, shops, grocery stores and restaurants.

Thanks to it's location the complex is a perfect base for anyone visiting any of the towns along the coast and also other towns such as Pompeii and Hercolaneum.
