The villa is reached by a medieval path(400 mt.) with 150 stairs but once there you are in heaven with a fabulous view of the coastline including Amalfi and Atrani. This villa is a typical example of a Mediterranean and Amalfitana house, with all the modern comforts.

Ravello is situated in a splendid position, on a rocky in a more elevated position than the other pearls of the Amalfi Coast. In the last century Ravello became a preferred destination of the Grand Tour, educational and pleasure travels of European intellectuals and artists. In Ravello Wagner, Longfellow and many others stayed for a time, and everybody was enchanted by the extraordinary fascination of these places. Among the numerous churches in Ravello, undoubtedly the Cathedral and Chiesa del Toro, besides the famous S. Francesco cloister, deserve a particular mention. Not to miss Villa Rufolo, very ancient, built approximately in year 1280 by the homonymous family, one of the richest and most important families in Ravello. Even though it has been rearranged, the building still completely expresses an interesting Arabian-Norman style. Concerts are held In the villa during the summer time; the audience is enchanted to see the orchestra that plays as if it were suspended half-way up on a uniformly blue setting, represented by sky and sea.
To be visited also is Villa Cimbrone, that was built in the twentieth century and was commissioned by the English nobleman William Bechett. This villa imitates classicized and medieval styles and forms. Its celebrity is due to the already-quoted 'Terrace of infinity', that is really one of the most charming places on the Coast. But the beauty of the Villa consists in its gardens, decorated by statues, busts and marble groups.

It doesn't get better than this. Villa Eustachio is a beautiful villa set down in a lovely quiete peaceful setting. The Villa is clean and ornately furnished in a country style.
If the best views of the Amalfi coast are in Ravello, villa Eustachio is the best place to enjoy them!
The outstanding feature is the swimming pool, huge, spotlessly clean and in a beautiful garden.
I definitely recommend to anyone.
We found this beautiful villa on VRBO. As we looked at the pictures online, we smiled at the awesome grandeur with hopes that it would satisfy our dream wishes. Upon arrival, we saw that it was everything it ought to have been. The place was enchanting. It was laid out in a style which comfortably established sleeping and private space for our very large group, which was sixteen in all the first couple of nights. Not only were the separate bedrooms adequate, but it accommodated us together well also, as we rested and dined on the poolside terrace, after cooking some Italian cuisine in the airy kitchen.
When we got there, Marco and Pasquale were easy to work with, making arrangements easy. Very well done, Guys! They were available, after too, but we had no problems.
If there were some things to discover for guests to critique, it was little indeed. One could mention that it was an easy walk downwards to the villa, on foot, as we had to park a ways away, but that it was much harder walking up the stair-like path to go out. This could be a problem if someone has an illness, or health problems, or advanced age. However, we saw this as a good opportunity for exercise, as if in a hike. One could find it to be exhilarating with the right attitude if one is generally healthy. The mule, carrying our loads at the end, was an added and fun bonus. Another slight critique to mention: for Americans, hot water was great, but towels were not abundant. We have heard that Italians do it this way, with fewer towels, and it worked out fine. No real complaints, as there was a washer and detergent, and plenty of drying rack space in the warm outside air. There was a huge dining table inside, but other living room space was a bit more sparing. We were on the roomy terrace a lot, especially in the evening, and no one complained once about lacking somewhere to sit. The bedrooms' sizes more than made up for any lack of living room seating. The view from the balconies was enormous and gorgeous.
So the breathtaking view was magnificent, the rooms were spacious and immaculate, the terrace at night was bliss, the pool was clean. The yard was beautiful. The bells ringing out from the town each hour were a favor from the past which we savored. We loved our stay there. It was sentimentally Italian, it was a Mediterranean seaside with the view, it was a modern opportunity to live that which is seldomly tangible. Lots of memories to last a lifetime from there, and the Amalfi area.
Dream Come True
This was our fourth trip to Italy with our children and grandchildren We had stayed at lovely places but the Villa was the best accomodation we experienced. Everybody liked everything. From the oldest (74) to the youngest (6) everyone luxuriated in the beauty of the outdoors, the gardens, the pool, the breathtaking views and enjoyed the exquisitively appointed indoors. Every room has its own character and all are most comfortable. We especially like cooking and spent fun times in the great kitchen. Pasquale and marco took very good care of us and their property by being extremely attentive without even once becoming intrusive. We are grateful!
As far as the steps to and from Scala and Amalfi go, they provided a wonderful challenge among all of us. Who would climb them the fastest and how often during our vacation?? Guess who won! Pontone, just below the villa, offered excellent restaurants and Ravello enchanted us with its fabulous music. A dream come true.
This large, clean and comfortable villa is perched on a cliff high above the beautiful town of Amalfi. It is surrounded by lemon groves and private gardens. The villa owners went well beyond the call of duty to make sure all twelve of us were always satisfied. Everyone - from age 4 to 64 - felt truly lucky to spend time in this magical place. You will NOT be disappointed!
