Raito: Holiday homes and apartments


It seems to float between heaven and earth – the charming small village with its intact „centro storico“.

Raito’s appeal lies with its tranquil authenticity and it offers marvelous views of the sea and of the Costiera Amalfitana.   

Picturesque village between sea and mountains

The appeal of the small village of Raito, part of the commune of Vietri Sul Mare, a town known for its ceramic art, lies with its wonderful views of the sea and the Costiera Amalfitana.

The numerous small terraced alleys of the „centro storico“ make for the village’s particular charm. Actually, there are only two streets at Raito, one above, the other below the village. Both, however, are well connected with the local public transportation network at the Amalfi coast. 

Those strolling through the terraced alleys, experience local everyday life at close range. Visitors to this place will not meet with the crowds of tourists which have become a normal sight at the world famous Amalfi coast – Raito has preserved its contemplative authenticity. 

This gem between sea and mountains offers not only fantastic views of the coast and the sea: The nearest sandy beach is only about three kilometres off and also accessible on foot via stairways.

Ceramics museum worth a visit

One of the sights at Raito is Villa Guariglia, which today houses the ceramics museum. The most significant ceramic products of the area are on display there. You can admire traditional objects as well as „periodo tedesco“ work. Every now and then, concerts or other expositions take place there, too. 

The Amalfi coast ceramics production, which is known all over the world, started off in the neighbouring town of Vietri Sul Mare. The Etruscans brought along the craft of pottery and Vietri Sul Mare’s export of ceramics throughout the Mediterranean area goes as far back as the Middle Ages. In the 19th century, production was concentrated on the „piastrelle“, the lovely ceramic tiles which still adorn many houses at the Amalfi coast today. 

The years between the two World Wars were the most productive from the point of view of artistry. Inspired by the Mediterranean attitude towards life, German artists such as Richard Dölker, Irene Kowalski-Wegner or Barbara Thewalt-Hannasch created a colourful-naïve world of pictures which characterizes Vietri’s ceramics to the present day.
