We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Ravello. The pictures did not do it justice, the place is much more impressive. All the facilities are there, the villa is very clean and taken care of regularly by a lovely couple of housekeepers who are extremely helpful but not intrusive in any way. We would love to go back and enjoy this place again in the near future.
