"I could dwell on many other things concerning Ravello, especially the old cathedral built by Niccolo Ruffuli in the eleventh century; enough, though, because you needn’t see too much nor recount too much." These words by Ferdinand Gregorovius, who traveled the Amalfi coast as early as 1853, are found in his book "Years of Travel in Italy".
We cannot but agree with his statement that you needn’t recount too much – you must have seen the Amalfi Coast in all its beauty and splendor by yourself. However, we by no means agree with his statement that you needn’t see too much!
Ravello offers an abundance of historic buildings, remarkable monuments and noble villas with gorgeous gardens you should not miss out on visiting!
Moreover, there are other towns, some better, some less known, such as Amalfi, Minori or Positano, with fascinating historic centers, winding alleys and breathtaking vistas, which you should also stop by…
The Amalfi Coast is always worth a journey, because there is always something to see and to discover. Our holiday apartment Marina Blu is an ideal starting point to do just that!
Marina Blu is a lovely holiday apartment in the peaceful district of Castiglione di Ravello. As Castiglione is located about 3 km below Ravello, it is much quieter there than in the main town. By the way, our holiday apartment La Panoramica is located in the same building.
Far from the hustle and bustle, you can let the evening fade away savoring a glass of red wine on your terrace. Still the sights of the Amalfi Coast are only a few kilometers off and easy to reach by car or even on foot.
Marina Blu is located on the ground floor of a multifamily residence which houses 4 apartments. The owning couple lives in one of them. Each apartment has its own separate entrance and private outdoor area.
The spacious combined living-dining room includes an open kitchen area with 4-burner gas stove, oven, refrigerator with freezer compartment, toaster and large dining table. There is also a cozy sofa as well as a TV.
The living-dining room as well as the bedroom offer direct access of the terrace and therefore also sea view.
The bedroom is furnished with a double bed, a chest of drawers and a chair. The sofa bed in the living-dining area serves as a sleeping facility for a possible third person.
Each of the two bathrooms is equipped with shower cabin, WC and bidet.
Marina Blu includes a gorgeous terrace, which is partly shaded by a small limonaia (Italian for lemon grove).
If you want to enjoy the southern Italian sun, then relax on one of the two sun loungers; or simply take delight in the marvelous view of the azure colored sea.
Furnishing of the holiday apartment includes washing machine, fan, TV, 2 sun loungers and free Wi-Fi.
You can park your car in a private parking space along the road above the house.
The famous center of Ravello is about 3 km off. You can walk there, following the stepped path which runs past your apartment, or you can go by car, following the uphill road.
The sandy beach of Marina di Castiglione is 1 km from your apartment. Of course, you can take the car, but should you prefer to walk, you need only follow the stepped path downhill.
The nearest shopping facility and the center of Atrani are also 1 km off.
When going on holiday to the Amalfi Coast, you should take along your hiking boots! The varied coastal and mountain landscape is best discovered on foot.
One of the most beautiful high-level hiking trails is "Sentiero degli Dei" (Italian for Path of Gods). And it really lives up to its name. Even Zeus is said to have wandered along this trail.
That is hardly a surprise! The narrow 'up-and-down' trail is simply breathtaking. At every turn you meet with a new spectacle: Sea and sky compete for the most beautiful and vivid shades of blue, an old Saracen tower, once built to fend of pirates, sits enthroned on a ledge at the coastal stretch and in the distance you spot the famous Mediterranean island of Capri.
The air is pervaded by the pleasant fragrance of wild thyme and you hear the inspired singing of the cicadas in the sun. It seems just like a piece of heaven!
