Stretched out in the sun on the terrace surrounding the pool, you will be able to enjoy a rich and strikingly unique panorama.

Below, framed by the nearly vertical walls of the valley, your gaze will find the glittering gem that is the town of Atrani, as well as the ocean beyond. The ancient pedestrian path and stairway that links Ravello with Atrani and the sea passes just in front of the house.

We enjoyed this beautiful accommodation. It was a relaxing resort away from crowds. It is centrally located on the beautiful amalfi Coast. We could: explore, hike, boat, swim, relax, shop, and enjoy delicious cuisine. We loved being near the great little towns of atrani, Amalfi, and Ravello. Casa Sesta was clean and had an adequate kitchen. We loved the walking and hiking, but there were lots of stairs to climb to enjoy the area. We loved it! We highly recommend the restaurants in atrani, the closest town. The family run restaurant Mistral was our favorite. The square is quaint and we loved the friendly atmosphere. We would love to visit again one day!

This must be one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. The views from the roof and windows are spectacular. We were welcomed on arrival and then left to enjoy our stay without interruption. We could not believe how close we were to Amalfi. The little local village and beach were idyllic . The many stairs leading from the village were a challenge at the end of a long day but added to the uniqueness of the experience.

A car is essential but don't hire anything too large as the road down into the complex of individual holiday homes as a challenge at first, very narrow with tight turns.
The accommodation was as described, very clean and well equipped, good bed, kitchen and large bathroom. The only slight down side is the roof terrace is not that usable (or clean) and the spiral stairs narrow, ok for breakfast we found.
As Casa Sesta hangs onto the rocks it is in the shade until mid day so not much direct sun, however, the pool is very close and is great for chilling when you are not out exploring. We didn't need the a/c as shutters worked well to keep most of the sun's heat out until early evening when the sun disappears over the adjacent hill.
The complex gates are locked at night so you need to use your key to get in, the caretaker doesn't speak much English and was unimpressed when I called him to let us in late one night. The lock on the gates is on the right inside the gates, would have helped to known that!
The walk to Ravello is hard in the heat and as such takes quite a while, better when the sun's down. Taxi back down is not too cheap but worth it.
Great walk down to nearest town, Atrani, and round the coast to Amalfi, doesn't take too long and the sights are great. Good bus service back from Amalfi but the walk back up to Casa Sesta is a chore.
Overall beautiful location, great accommodation, just be aware of the short coming and enjoy!

The accommodation is magnificently located under the clifftops of Villa Cimbrone which is a must visit destination while you are there (find Villa Cimbrone in Ravello). The accommodation for 2 persons is just right with privacy a large bathroom a pool and a rooftop terrace.
We enjoyed every step down to Atrani and back up again. If you like to be active on holiday then the walk down to town or across to Amalfi alone will keep you toned while away. You realy feel like you are one of the locals as you retire to your apartment tucked away through the back streets up into the cliffs.
We absolutely loved our time at Casa Sesta and would return again given the chance. It is well located for a walking holiday as well as exploring the local towns and it is easy to use public transport or a car. The accommodation was perfect for our honeymoon and I would recommend it to couples who are looking to get away from it all without really being far away from everything you need oh and don't mind a few steps.
