Villa Diana is in the pedestrian precinct area of Ravello , 400 meters (440 yards) from the main square. It is next to one of the area’s most important tourist attractions, Villa Cimbrone , which is famous for its wonderful gardens and its spectacular terrace that juts out over the sea.
The view from Villa Diana is spellbinding: the villa juts out over a valley and from the terraces you have a never-ending panorama of the narrow Valle del Dragone, which ends at the sea, and a green arena formed by the slopes of Monti Lattari, on whose peaks cling a few small, old villages. The air is clean and clear. The fascinating tranquility of the surroundings invite you to relax.
Vineyards surround the house, and it is these very grapes that are used to produce the famous wines of Ravello. There is a nature path next to the Villa’s gate, which allows you to reach Amalfi on foot, starting from a point high up in the hills, suspended between the sky and the sea where Ravello is situated. This is a walk not to be missed: at every step brief glimpses of breathtaking views open up in front of your eyes and these will become unforgettable memories that will stay in your heart after your holiday has ended.
A car is not necessary for your stay at Villa Diana. However, there is a paying car park 400 meters (440 yards) away. There are restaurants and shops at 200 meters (220 yards) away from the house. Also at 400 meters (440 yards) away there is a bus stop for the bus that takes you from Ravello to Amalfi and other towns on the Amalfi Coast . From Amalfi you can catch a ferry to Positano , Capri , Sorrento and Salerno ; you can also easily reach the famous archeological sites at Pompei and Paestum .
Villa Diana has two apartments available for holidays, A and B. These can be left as separate apartments or they can be connected if required. They are part of a big, old country house that has been restored. It has thick stone walls and vaulted ceilings. This old way of building houses with the locally found stone keeps Villa Diana cool during the summer in an ecological way.
Villa Diana B is an apartment of approximately 70 square meters (750 square feet) suitable for four people. There is a small garden, a patio and a terrace. Each room has a splendid view over the green hills that surround Ravello and plunge steeply to the sea. There are two bedrooms, two toilets, a sitting room and a kitchen.
The rooms are on two floors. You enter the house by means of a terrace, tiled in terracotta and shaded by a pergola. A short stairway of seven steps leads you to the patio and from there you enter into the sitting room. The patio is furnished with garden furniture and a sun umbrella. It can be used to dine ‘al fresco’ and it is a pleasant area for relaxing and enjoying the surrounding panorama.
There is a sofa and a dining table in the sitting room. From the sitting room you go the kitchen. The kitchen is comfortable and is equipped with a cooker, oven and a fridge/freezer. On the ground floor there is also a toilet and a shower.
There is a trap door in the ceiling from where a wooden stairway takes you up to a small bedroom with a vaulted ceiling lit up by a little window. Here there are two single beds, a wardrobe and a wash-basin.
A spiral staircase leads you from the sitting room to a twin-bedded room. The room has a vaulted ceiling, so the walls are quite low, and the room is lit up by two small windows. Next to this room there is a toilet and shower. The house is kept naturally cool in summer. The furnishing is pleasing and welcoming, with bamboo furniture and enriched by a small collection of craft items. Villa Diana B has a small rustic garden with an orchard and vineyards under which you can sit and relax in the shade.
