Description from the manager
Villa Giannino is a graceful villa built upon a terracing almost at the top of the rocky spur on which the town of Ravello stretches, sheer above the sea. From all its observation points you will be able to enjoy the amazing view of the Amalfi Coast and of the sea â€“ that very same view that has made Ravello famous all over the world as the town â€śsuspended between the sky and the seaâ€ť.
It is the view that fascinated composers and poets, and that made Richard Wagner fall in love with this place, and from which he took inspiration to write the everlasting music of the Parsifal.
It is the view that, along with the historical bea...Read more

What Past Guests Are Saying
Unlivable in February
This villa does not have adequate heating to be rented in the winter months. It should not be on the list of available rentals for those months. In addition, either the agent or the owner, or both, did not think ahead regarding our rental. When we arrived at the property, the inside temperature was the same as the outside temperature (4 degrees). During the first two days of our stay, we could not make it warmer than 12 degrees inside. The only reason we made it warmer later in the week was that we found a hotel that was willing to let us borrow a space heater. The owner and manager should be ashamed at their shoddy treatment of us.
Response from Summer In Italy - 03/04/2012
In all truthfulness, I must agree that, in the dire weather conditions suffered in Europe in February 2012 (one of the coldest waves ever suffered, with Italy paralyzed by the cold and a situation so extreme to cause the death of 57 people in a modern, industrialized, country such as Italy, as well as the grounding of planes and the halting of trains), the heating provided at Villa Giannino, planned and built for much milder temperatures, was not sufficient. When the owner accepted the booking, 9 months before, she could not have known, of course, as everybody was caught by surprise by this terrible situation. First of all, I would like to forward again the owner's apologies, to which I would like to add my own.
The unlivable condition was immediately acknowledged by our staff when it was reported to us, two days after check-in. Since the owner was not able to provide the required degree of comfort, we offered, at the guest discretion, a free upgrade to an apartment with a more powerful heating system or a refund. Both alternatives were declined as the guest preferred to stay at the apartment and use the borrowed space heater.
Given the decision to stay at the apartment, we thought it would have been a nice gesture to arrange for all local costs to be forfeited, which we did even if not requested. It seemed a sensible way to show our sincere contrition, since any other offer for assistance had been declined.
I am grateful for this opportunity to publicly extend, once more, our apologies, for this exceptional situation where no solution was deemed to be satisfactory. We all pray that such an extreme cold weather will not happen ever again.
Family of four
This was one of the most beautiful locations we've ever stayed in. The
apartment is relatively basic but the terrace is huge and offers probably the
best views I've ever had in any accommodation. It is also placed in an excellent
location a 5 minute walk from the central square of Ravello, which is a
beautiful and magical little town. I can't recommend this holiday highly
enough. You will be surrounded by beautiful mountains, the sea, and a
spectacular coastline wherever you go. The kids loved playing on the terrace,
they also loved Ravello square where they played football with some local
children. We spent a lot of time sitting on the terrace, just soaking in the view
and enjoying the peace. This is a very special place, also run efficiently and we
were well looked after. I would urge you to try it.
We Love Revello
There were 5 of us adults ageing from 68 to 36 staying here for 1 week and we loved it.
We got up every morning and ate our breakfast on the amazingly large terrace with a million dollar view. Some days we sunbathed for a while, then off we would walk down to Amalfi, A must do takes about
45 minutes meandering down.
The apartment was even better than we expected we were very happy with it.
It was close to everything in Revello, the bus from Amalfi stops only a few metres from the apartment very convenient as you down want to walk
up from Amalfi, it ony costs 1Euro each way and goes every half hour.
We all would stay here again.
Very happy memories.
Wilma was there shortly after our arrival. The furnishings were a little tired but adequate; however, the view made up for any of the short comings of the furnishings. The location for access to Ravello, bus service to Amalfi, and to the concerts at Villa Rufalo could not have been better. Also, its location made for a great base for day trips to Naples, Paestum, Pompii, etc, and the Amafi coast. Free parking was available down the street from the apartment. The major drawback for those not physically fit would be the steps to the apartment. There were some great hiking trails from Ravello to Amalfi (only went down, would not want to hike from Amalfi to Ravello) Would definitely rent again.
