Our family stayed here a week for daughter's wedding in Ravello. Fantastic place to chill with family and very well appointed in all rooms. The staff was superb and we must highlight Roxanne as being a wonderful person and willing to help in many areas. We would stay again without hestitation.
For the superb accomodations we felt the kitchen, although adequate was understated for the size and exquisitenss of the rest of the house. The only other recommendation would be to not rent the 'annex' as that was the only room which did not reach the high level state of the rest of the house.
