Castiglione 2 is a delightful apartment in a wonderful position between the sea and the pretty town of Ravello perched loftily on the hillside. The apartment itself is comfortably furnished and has a large panoramic terrace, furnished with table and chairs, which overlooks an amazing view of the clear blue sea.
Castiglione 2 is on the middle level of a little detached villa, built cleverly into the terraced land of the hillside so typical of this area. Reached by just nine steps, the apartment is spacious and airy and comfortably furnished in a fresh Mediterranean style. Its living room has a sitting area with settees, dining table and chairs and opens onto the apartments large terrace. There is a separate fully equipped kitchen, two double bedrooms, one of which has patio doors opening onto the terrace, and a bathroom with bathtub. The terrace is furnished with sun umbrella, sun loungers, table and chairs and enjoys spectacular sea views, creating the perfect spot to relax, or dine al fresco whilst watching the sun setting on the horizon.
The picturesque little bay of Castilglione di Ravello with its pretty little beach, is just 600m away and reachable via steps. The town of Amalfi, originally a fishing village, now a well known jewel of the coastline is close by and Ravello a town that inspired writers and composers such as Goethe and Wagner, as well as stars of Italian cinema who were all awed with its beauty is just 3.5km away. Both towns have a selection of shops, restaurants and bars as well as a local bus service.
This wonderful area is easily explored by car or local transport. From Amalfi (1.2km) there are buses to many beautiful towns such as Positano and Sorrento, as well ferry services to the islands. Further afield and well worth a visit are the archeological sites of Pompeii and Ercolano, at the feet of the volcano Vesuvius.
The lower level of the villa consists of a further 2 bedroom apartment (Castiglione 1) therefore the two apartments taken together can sleep larger parties of up to 10 persons. In the upper level of the villa reside the owners. The villa is built on the hillside on terraced land so each level is set back from the other.
There is one private parking space (suitable for small to medium size car only) for the use of both apartments. Use of this should be requested at time of booking and is payable locally. Further street parking is available close by.
Note: There are steps in the surrounding area and to access the seafront on foot. Therefore this property may not be suitable for persons with walking difficulties.
