Amalfi apartment description
Appartamento Luigi is an accommodation of 100 square meters featuring two double bedrooms. The large living room has a library, a fireplace and gives access to a covered sea viewed balcony. It offers also a table, some chairs, a sofa and an armchair. One can cook in the small kitchen featuring a 4 burner stove, a hood fan, a microwave and a refrigerator. The bathroom has a shower. It's pleasantly furnished with antique furniture and paintings. There is a phone to contact the reception of the villa or to make external calls.
The relais is located in the coastal part (seafront) of Ravello and its center is five kilometres far from it at around three hundred and fifty meters above the sea level. Amalfi is one kilometre and a half away.?
At only nine hundred metres far from Villa Scarpariello Relais, there is Atrani, a small fishermen – away from the crowd village, with some nice restaurants where you can taste the freshest products of the coast.
Within walking distance, at only five hundred meters, there is the Hotel Villa San Michele with its family run restaurant.
The Campania region is particularly rich in history and culture and the tailor made excursions that I personally arrange (look at the bottom of the e-mail for more info) offer a good chance to explore it in the best way.
The Amalfi Coast is one of the most enchanting places of the world featuring a combination of elements which makes it unique in its gender.
It's not possible to talk about the coast without describing the beauty of the sceneries: the villages are surrounded by the Lattari mountains where it is possible to hike remaining enchanted by the panorama.
Thanks to the morphology of its territory, the Amalfi Coast offers a variety of landscapes all to discover.

- Amalfi, and its particular coast, is considered perhaps the most beautiful part of Italy. It is a quiet and picturesque seaside resort with a temperate climate and incomparable natural beauties. Amalfi, originally Roman, was the first Sea Republic of Italy. After the fall of the Roman Empire, it was the first city to re-establish relationship between East and West by transporting and introducing into Italy exotic merchandise such as carpets, coffee and paper. Amalfi had its own coin (The Tarì) and was the home of Flavio Gioia, the inventor of the compass, and gave the navigators the famous maritime law known as 'Tabula de Amalpha'. Below follow some suggestions about the places to visit: The Duomo, built about the 6th century and dedicated to St.Andrew the Apostle whose remains are kept in the crypt; • The Cloister of Paradise, set beside the Duomo, that was built the 13th century in Arabian style; • The Paper Museum, where we can see the tools used over the centuries for making paper by hand; • The Emerald Grotto, a fantastic green temple full of figures, caryatids and bas-reliefs formed by dripping water from the vaulted ceiling, over the thousand of years. An interesting feature: the underwater pottery crib. The 'Paper Museum' at Amalfi Amalfi lies between the Valle dei Mulini and the sea. It's the great stage on which one of world's most famous histories unfolded, the Marine Republique of Amalfi, which illuminated the Mediterranean with grandiose enterprises. That small space enclosed by the harsh Monti Lattari also earned another claim to fame for the production of hand made paper. There are no official documents to enable us to determine how far back the first production system appeared, but it was presumably around the first half of the XII century. The people of Amalfi had learned the paper production techniques from the Arabs, indeed they called it 'carta bambagina' from the name of the Arab Town El Mambig, though another school of thought believes that name is associated with 'bambagia' (cotton wool). Many foreigners, attracted by the quality of the product, came to Naples to have their works printed on Amalfi paper. It is not possible to establish just how many paper mills there were in Valle dei Mulini. This museum is housed in an old paper mill that dates back to XIV century (approx). Today in the paper mill turned museum we can see the tools used over the centuries for making paper by hand. There are the old wooden mallets, operated by a hydraulic wheel, which used to beat and mash rags of linen, cotton and hemp, previously gathered in the mighty 'stone beaters'. The mixture obtained was lifted from the beater with special wooden scoops and placed in the vat where it diluted with water. The vat was composed of a tank, lined on the inside with majolica, high enough to allow the operator the most comfortable standing position. The operator would immerse in the vat a frame, the bottom of which was made of a wire screen with fine mesh, and collect a certain amount of pulp, distributing it evenly over the screen. . After the water had drained off, a thin layer of pulp was left. The 'sheet' was then placed on a 'couch' of woollen felt and covered with another felt. Many 'sheets', piled up with the same procedure, were then placed under a press to eliminate the water residue. There is one such press in the museum, still in working order, dating back to the XVII century. After the sheets had been pressed, the operator removed them and placed them one on the top of the other, creating to so called 'post'. The 'posts' were then transferred to the drying room to be died in the air. The sheets were then treated with a solution of an animal gelatin and smoothed by hand, after accurate quality selection. But the various level of the paper mill also present some more 'modern' aspects....moreless

“A view of heaven”
“A view of heaven” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 My belated review (our group of 6 stayed last June) is only due to the fact that every time I think of this oasis while here in Chicago I want to cry. We were to stay 5 days, but had to cut our trip short when my in-laws suffered an accident. It was a dream interrupted. Emiliano was so helpful in all of the planning stages, and even appeared at the hospital after our accident to see if he could help or translate, if needed. Nicola was invaluable in assisting us to get our flights changed, and although I think a friend was waiting in the lobby to lunch with him, he was more than generous with his time and efforts. Dominique was very friendly and charmed my in-laws....That's the HUMAN story, and I cannot even begin to share the serenity enjoyed in the midst of personal chaos at this location. Although we drove a car from Sorrento, it was a minivan and we mostly chose to leave it parked until we left. One couple while we were there rented a boat every morning which docked at the hotel for trips to Positano and Priano. There were motor scooter rentals in town and a bus which came by which we never took (we were warned it tends to fill up in Salerno). In our brief time here we walked to the Valley of the Mills, toured the Church of Amalfi, visited Atrani numerous times and drove to Minori once for groceries. My husband and son swam to a small cave near the swim-landing but I was not so adventurous! Lunch at the Silver Moon is not to be missed (many restaurants always seemed to be closed when we were hungry and this place was the exception) What other travelers say is true--it is bit of a walk to town--but the people, magnificent views, refreshing pool and the dips into the Mediterranean are unsurpassed. There is no bad view from any location on the grounds which we could find, and when you get home you will realize each picture taken looks like a postcard. My two children (13&15) trekked it like troupers and cant wait to go back. I hope to visit again this summer--and will do everything possible to NOT cut this trip short!

“Perfect Stay”Guest comment entered by manager
“Perfect Stay” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 The highest praise I can give Villa Scarpariello is that we keep returning! The views were, of course, spectacular and the ocean swims were perfect. Because there are few apartments/rooms, the guests don't feel overcrowded or rushed. Andrea and Carlo welcomed us back and took us to our apartment which was perfect for our needs (2 bedrooms with kitchen and porch overlooking the sea). Dominic and the lovely ladies on the terrace greeted us each morning with a simple yet delicious breakfast. (Our son was thrilled with his special mix of hot chocolate and coffee made special for him each morning.) Nicola, who owns Hotel Villa San Michele up the street, served outstanding plates each evening for dinner. His wife, Rosa, is the chef and she knows how to bring out the best flavors of the region in her cooking! Pier Paolo, Nicola's nephew, was wonderful to see as well. If you are ever in Bologna, check out his families places, La Mela and Il Duca D'Amalfi. We plan to visit there soon! This place is the perfect location to explore the coast of Amalfi and be away from the crowds of tourists.
