Casa Cordiale Holday rental ravello amalfi coast italy
Description from the manager
Minimum rental one week rental Saturday to Saturday except for urban apartments. Casa Cordiale is a very comfortable and spacious apartment just on the outskirts of the enchanting village of Ravello. Set high on the hill overlooking the bays of Maiori and Minori below, the apartment provides a breath of fresh air for those seeking a respite from the summer crowds of the Amalfi coast.
Its peaceful setting offers stunning views of verdant, terraced lemon groves and ancient vineyards cut severely into the sloping rock cascading down the hillside. Casa Cordiale is actually the lower level of a charming two-story villa, the top floor of which is occasionally occupied by the owners during summer weekends. The apartment is reached by descending 120 steps from the road (where there is space for parking) through a lovely little garden with a paved terrace area. The interior is clean and simple and perfect for a family or three couples who wish to inhale the beauty of this magical area of Italy. Entering Casa Cordiale you find yourself greeted by a large, bright open plan living/dining room with a cozy open fireplace and a dining table suitable for six. The sitting area is furnished with a TV (local channels only), a CD player, wicker armchairs and a comfortable leather divan, convertible into a bed for two. The French doors lead outside to a sizable furnished terrace, perfect for outdoor dining, or for just relaxing with a nice chianti and enjoying the astonishing views.
The well-equipped kitchen (with side door to terrace) includes a gas stove, oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.
The two queen bedrooms are clean and bright and the comfortable twin beds in the twin bedroom can be converted into a queen bed. Both bedrooms have a window facing the rear of the house. One of the bathrooms has an open, wall-mounted shower and WC while the other offers a bathtub and WC.
Additional facilities include a portable barbecue, a hair dryer and ironing equipment. Cot and highchair are available upon request for 52 Euro/week.
Services include an English- speaking manager on call and maid service four hours mid-week with a change of linens on Saturdays. The Amalfi Coast has the illustrious honor of being listed in Patricia Schultz's definitive 2003 book "1000 Places to See Before You Die". The drive, a 30-mile stretch of impossibly curving road south of Naples, is touted as "Italy's dream drive". Along its route are notable and beautiful towns such as Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi, Ravello and Salerno. Each has its own unique feel and flavor and offers the visitor to Italy bountiful opportunities for superlatives and exclamations. Ravello, for instance, is described in the aforementioned book as "closer to heaven than to the sea". Especially not to be missed are Ravello's two "irresistibly romantic" garden estates, the Villa Rufolo and the Villa Cimbrone. The garden of Villa Rufolo hosts Ravello's renowned open-air music festival that runs annually from April to October.
Additional amenities include: living room, car recommended, views, caretaker, heating, crib, maid available 100 euros/4hrs weekly-mandatory, cook available inquire....Read more
