The apartments Ulisse are part of a small complex consisting of an ancient villa and two annexed buildings.
The small complex is situated on the slope of a narrow valley known as the Valley of the Dragon; it is located directly above the residential area of Atrani and beneath the residences of Ravello.
Guests will have access to a large garden that extends onto terraces along the steep sloping sides of the valley, as well as a lovely swimming pool equipped with umbrellas and deckchairs.
Stretched out in the sun on the terrace surrounding the pool, you will be able to enjoy a rich and strikingly unique panorama. If you raise your eyes upwards, you will see just above you on the rocky outcroppings on which Ravello clings to the cliffside, and in particular, the terrace of Villa Cimbrone , known as the "Infinite". In front of you, you will see the opposite side of the valley, where jagged cliffs alternate with lush terraces cultivated with lemon groves. 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.
Descending by this path, you will pass through the center of Atrani, where you will find stores and restaurants; here, you will also find easy access to the beach. The pathway contains 300 stairs.
You will reach the swimming pool from Residence Villa Rosa going up a short walkway that includes approximately 25 stairway steps.

It was a great place to stay. The situation is just lovely, high up along the
valley - therefore in the shade in the early morning and late evening. The
accommodation was clean, well looked after and felt quite Italian. The
pool was a great asset as it was very hot for the likes of us Brits!! The way
the complex was set up one felt separate yet with other people which was
very nice. Some of the apartments looked directly down to the sea which
looked lovely. Atrani was just lovely (no cars) and very Italian and away
from everything just because it was located below the main coastal road.
Being so high up did mean that there was a lot of walking up and down the
430 steps if you didn't have a car. Atrani is less than 10 mins walk and
Amalfi 15 mins but getting back up the valley was very hot work if you
were carrying shopping! Atrani had a couple of food shops and a general
store for stamps, tickets for buses etc, cafes, restaurants and that was
about it. Further amenities were in Amalfi. All trips had to be booked in
Amalfi if using tour buses but you got picked up in Amalfi which was
Traveling the coastal roads is nerve racking - certainly not for the faint
hearted nor those suffering from travel sickness that's for sure!
Didn't have much to do with the proprietor which was just as well as he
spoke virtually no English. He was pleasant enough and was very prompt
when we arrived.
We didn't have a car and on arrival was dropped at the gates to the whole
property but our accommodation was a long way down a steep, winding
road which was very hard with suitcases and equally could've been a
problem on our departure except a local taxi knew the place and came
right down to collect us.
Needed cash practically all the time as not many places had credit
facilities, even those who did positively discouraged you from using it. In
one place they pretended that it didn't work just so we would use cash -
did take it eventually!

One of the best self catering properties in Italy that we have come across. A little difficult to find but directions were good and reception was friendly and competent. House itself is big, well maintained and clean. Be warned that all of the kitchen cupboards are cleared after you leave, so be prepared to buy the basics such as olive oil, pepper, coffee etc. as soon as you get there unlike many places where previous guests leave unused items for the next people. Terrace of the house and the pool shared with other properties are superb, looking out over the valley to lemon groves. Many stone steps take you down the valley to Atrani, which shouldn't be missed for its cafes, restaurants and in fact it's the quickest way to walk to Amalfi. Try Google mapping it and take a look at the users' photos in street view - it says it all. Believe the owner's detailed description on the rental site, it's all true!
