When we arrived at Pontone for the first time, we felt like not being at the Amalfi Coast at all. And yet the medieval village is part of the oldest community on the world-famous coast. Not much of what is 'touristy', like at neighboring Amalfi and Ravello, has made it to this place at an altitude of ca. 300 m. Our eyes take on a dreamy expression as from Palazzo San Giovanni we look out upon the narrow valley Amalfi stretches out in.
Before its renovation in 2018/2019, the centrally located palazzo was the former school building of the village. It now houses 11 very beautiful, modern studio apartments of various categories.
For your holidays at Pontone we have chosen the ca. 35 m2 sea view apartments of the superior category for up to 4 persons. The special highlight they come with is a private terrace which opens upon a unique panorama of Amalfi and the sea.
The spacious, light-flooded studio apartment superior has got a large panorama window with French doors. It is well laid out with a sleeping area with double bed, a dining area with sofa bed for 2 persons as well as a slightly sectioned off, small kitchenette.
The beautiful, blue floor tiles were produced at Vietri sul Mare's world-famous ceramics workshops. They are also found in the modern, tastefully designed bathroom with shower cabin/WC/bidet and hair dryer.
The furnished sea view terrace offers a panorama you might never tire of. Across the lemon groves Pontone lies embedded in your gaze roams to the foothills of Valle delle Ferriere, to Amalfi and far out to sea. You might feel a bit like the Amalfitan aristocrats who used to seek peace, quiet and relaxation in this place.
Furnishing of the apartment includes SAT-TV, WiFi, air conditioning, a small safe and, upon request, a children’s bed. The kitchenette features two plate induction cooktop, small refrigerator and water boiler. Microwave and toaster can be provided upon request.
Before entering Palazzo San Giovanni into the reception area and the adjoining breakfast room, you cross a terrace which during warm season is also the breakfast terrace. At any other time guests can use it, relax on sun beds there or at jacuzzi pool below.
Breakfast ranges from hearty and fruity to sweet, the irresistible pastry classics of the Amalfi Coast and of Naples are a matter of course.
Public parking spaces are found below the Palazzo. Between Easter and October you might be well advised to reserve one of the accommodation’s chargeable parking spaces ca. 200 m off in advance. You cannot reach the accommodation directly by car, only by way of a foot and stepped path.
Pontone is the starting point of two hiking trails, one runs into Valle delle Ferriere and one to Torre dello Ziro. That is why the place is particularly attractive to active vacationers and those who prefer to be accommodated apart from any hustle and bustle.
At small, tranquil Pontone and in the immediate vicinity of Palazzo San Giovanni, there are two restaurants and a bar, which includes a small grocery store. The most important things are available there. You can also buy fresh panini sandwiches as a lunchtime snack or as provisions for your hiking tour.
By the way, you can also walk to Amalfi, which ca. 1.6 km off, but do consider the incline, especially on your way back. From Amalfi’s harbor, boats depart for Capri at regular intervals. Amalfi is also the hub of the bus connections along the coastal road.
The nearest beach at Castiglione is about 3 km off. You can take the bus there from Scala and Ravello as well as Amalfi.
