Hotel Villa Fraulo, Ravello

  • Neapolitan Riviera, Italy, Amalfi Coast

Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Villa Fraulo has a great location. It’s in the centre of Ravello close to the main square, Piazza Vecovado, so you won’t have to go far to explore the town’s sights. The hotel used to be the residence of the Cortese family so it’s got plenty of history and character. There’s a beautiful stone fireplace in the dining room that dates back to the 19th Century. Dinner’s next to this are pretty special.

The rooms here complement the hotel’s history with a classic style. They’ve all got a private balcony or terrace with amazing sea views too. We like spending time on the hotel’s terrace where you can order a classic cocktail or glass of prosecco and chill out on one of the loungers. If you want to relax even more, we can recommend the wellness centre. There’s a small, heated pool with sea views and you can book in for a massage (treatments are payable locally).

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 10 mins by private car from Naples airport.

Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast is one of the most recognisable images of Italy – a 50-kilometre-long coastline of plunging cliffs topped with sky-scraping viewpoints. The towns step down the cliffs in a jumble of pastel houses and church domes, before fetching up at tiny harbours.

Although alike in looks, each place has its own forte. Ravello is known for its terraced gardens and clifftop summer music festival. Amalfi has a grand eighth-century cathedral, while Positano offers the Byzantine Church of Santa Maria Assunta.

Amalfi Coast holidays also leave you perfectly poised for exploring the rest of the region – from Sorrento, Ischia and Capri to Naples, Pompeii and Vesuvius.

Excursions

Pompeii & Vesuvius (full day)

Enjoy the views as you're driven along the stunning Amalfi coast to your first stop, Pompeii. The thriving city was buried following the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD, which ultimately preserved the buildings, mosaics and frescoes that you'll see as you wander through. The sheer scale of the place is impressive, standing in the streets there you can only imagine what life was like here at that time. But, you'll be accompanied by a guide who will help give you a better insight into its history. After you'll make your way up the flanks of Mount Vesuvius, the only active volcano on mainland Europe. You'll be dropped off to make the final accent to the summit on foot. Its worth the climb up the volcanic rock path to the crater, you'll smell the sulphur before you see it!
