"YesYes" he said "Just walk down the road about 15m's climb the wall and walk down the 400 steps and you are there". We did just that .... only to find a beach with not a single grain of sand on it but covered in big pebbles ! Oh well, we were so hot by then we just wanted to go in the water. So we strip off ....... we are both glowing white, the ...

On the return walk from Cimbrone back to the piazza Duomo, we stopped at Hotel Villa Maria for a drink and snack. I had a wonder around the hotel, which looked to be very nice; a young couple were planning a wedding with the manager. We were one of only two in the ...

Statues, hand painted tiles, wall art, sign writing, main streets, shops all in such a wonderfully preserved state - the Romans did make buildings to last.....

I'm sure it was third grade when we talked about Pompeii. I don't know what my mother fed me for breakfast that day, but I was on top of my game. I was really paying attention. I've wanted to see Pompeii ever since...79 A.D., Mt. Vesuvius erupts into the air, people are covered with volcanic ash that rained down for two days...the whole place frozen in time.

Historical Traveler Reviews Punta Civita Ravello
Engaged on the Amalfi
This hotel is absolutely amazing and charming. Roberto, the owner, went to special extremes to make sure that we enjoyed our stay and felt at home. My fiancee actually proposed to me at Punta Civita and Roberto helped us celebrate with a nice bottle of champagne delivered to our room.
This is a great place for anyone looking for a charming B&B with wonderful views of the Amalfi coast and excellent, home-grown service.
The 'Infinity Room' with its stunning panoramic views and private balcony surrounded by olive and lemon trees is simply splendid and very romantic!! Roberto, the owner, cannot do enough to make you feel at home!
Much like Ravello itself, this place is a jewel..
A Good Find!
We stayed for 3 nights in the Romantica Room which was very spacious with an unusual bathroom built like a small house within the room.
Breakfast is served on the terrace which has wonderful views and beautiful flowers.
Roberto, the owner, has renovated the property himself and has set very high standards. Roberto himself was the perfect host - from taking our luggage, serving our breakfast, giving tips & advice and even giving us a lift into Amalfi for the ferry to Capri.
Although situated with fantatic views, the only drawback is that there is nothing within a short walking distance. But ask Roberto for a bus timetable and the bus stop is across the road (outside a winery where you can sample wine and make some excellent purchases!). The bus takes 10 minutes into Ravello, which is a wonderful small town. Although we had a car, would recommend taking the bus as Ravello is closed to traffic and parking outside it can be difficult (and costly). However be careful at nights, as we found there were no taxis late at night unless there a concert was on - luckily we went into a bar who phoned a taxi. Our driver apologised that he was in his own car as he was off duty, took us back to Punta Civita and refused to take any money. It turns out the bar owner was Roberto's brother-in-law! Just mention Roberto anywhere in Ravello and people will look after you.
You need to remember that this is a B&B, so dont expect the extra services you'd find in a hotel or the use of facilities you'd have in an apartment. But as a B&B with good rates, then Punta Civita is highly recommended.
Very fine B&B
A very clean and friendly B&B.
Roberto could not do enough to please us. A mistake on my part which resulted in 3 days being booked when we only wanted two was graciously dealt with.
Bus between Amalfi and Ravello stops outside but a car is helpful. 10 minute walk down steep steps to the unspoilt village of Atrani. Rather more challenging walk up to Ravello -go late afternoon when the day trippers have left.
The neatest place on the Amalfi Coast
Ravello is a jewel of a place. It's a beautiful town in the hills overlooking the coast and a wonderful change of pace from the very touristy Amalfi and other coastal towns. This Bed and Breakfast is super-- great facilities, beautiful rooms and an unbeatable breakfast area having a beautiful vista of the mountain and the water below. If you're taking the bus from Amalfi, ask the driver to let you off at Punta Civita, a bus stop which is a couple of miles away from the town of Ravello. The B&B is not evident at first but after you discover it, you'll easily remember how to find it. And-- the hotelkeeper doesn't take credit cards--but ATMs are abundant in most Italian towns.
Charming, newly-renovated B&B (4 guest rooms) is halfway between Amalfi and Ravello (the best city on the Amalfi Coast, by far). Has spectacular, panoramic views of the sea and adjoining countryside which is so beautiful it defies description. Rooms are good-size and most open up to a spectacular, flowered terrace (make sure you book one of these). Although buses are near-by for visits to Ravello and other locations, it would be much better to rent a car. No restaurant at B&B or within reasonable walking distance. Roberto, the host, was gracious, if some-what moody and bombastic. Does not like you using the kitchen, and often we felt like we were imposing in his "house." Room rates are v/good. Ravello is a paradise!
This B&B was absolutely beautiful - the views spectacular and the host amazing! Our last night we watched the fireworks display on the terrace overlooking Amalfi while drinking wine with our host Roberto. This B&B was everything we could ask for!
We happened to stumble upon this accommodation while in route to Amalfi. We were greeted by Roberto, our very gracious host. This bed and breakfast is clean, quaint and peaceful. The views of the sea and neighboring villages are spectacular. It is a nice escape from the noisy crowds of Amalfi. A car is recommended, but the bus stop is right outside. To top it off there is a winery within walking distance called San Sammarco. The wine is decadent and the lemoncello exquisite!
