The staff were very helpful and loved the hotel and were very proud of it's history. The location and the vistas, gardens etc were superb. I love old hotels that are steeped in history and gently show their age. I will definetly revisit .
Yumi, the owner, was charming, helpful and really paid attention to our needs. She could not have been better! The location, with on-site garage parking, was ideal; we could not have had a better location. We would definitely recommend it and would return! Thank you, Yumi
Great location with amazing views, very friendly staff. Driving to the hotel and parking is a bit of a challenge due to the narrow entrance road.
Very friendly staff. Always willing to help. Great location too
Villa includes a kitchenette. Location was very beautiful and so close to shops
I can’t belive this place is only a 3 star hotel! This is our new favorite place! It’s so charming, friendly, and clean. The restraint is amazing! We’re planning on eating there again. The location and staff could not be any better! Love love loveeee this hotel!
Hotel Graal is located close to the main square and has spectacular views of the area. We experienced a warm reception by the hotel owner and staff who were helpful and accommodating. Highly recommended,
It's a hotel that you only ever dream of staying at !! The service is impeccable, the rooms unique and well appointed and the food in restaurant is delicious! Take advantage of the breakfast served in room... you will not be disappointed !! Ravello is a wonderful town to walk around in The pictures ...
Beautiful room and views even in a garden view or “no view room”. Expedia is not my favorite, but this place is great so one way or another try to make it happen. Also, you get a bit of a discount at the restaurant, and of the 12 days we spent in 4 different towns/cities in Italy, this may have been ...
The Villa Rufolo is easy to get to from wherever you’re staying on the Amalfi Coast. But surround the country mansion and its gardens are in the town of Ravello is a collection of four-star hotels with pools and terraces that look out across the sea. There are also several comfortable three-star B&Bs, hotels and villas in the hilltop town.
If you’re looking for five-star luxury, search for a place to stay in Ravello’s Piazza Duomo. You could also search in nearby Amalfi or the coastal town on Minori, a couple of miles away, where you’ll find cool, quintessentially Mediterranean rooms with pools, spas and in-house restaurants.
Villa Rufolo is one of the greatest treasures of the Amalfi coast and the villa has inspired many artists who have fallen for its magic down the centuries. The unique architecture of the 13th-century building helped composer Richard Wagner to finish an opera he’d been working on for decades, and the poet Bocaccio, at the forefront of early Italian Renaissance, wrote about the villa and its owner in Decameron.
Time your visit to Villa Rufolo for summer when it has a series of concerts to celebrate its artistic legacy, with the sea and the Amalfi coast as its impressive backdrop.
The Moorish influence on the building has led some to compare Villa Rufolo to Alhambra in Spain. Take in the Torre Maggiore, the tallest tower in the villa, and stroll beneath the intricately detailed cloisters in the courtyard beneath it. Villa Rufolo also has Turkish baths, an art-filled chapel and a vaulted dining room near the gardens for you to explore.
Make sure you take plenty of time to enjoy the tranquillity of Villa Rufolo’s garden – the Garden of the Soul – which spreads across two levels. Wander around the geometric flower beds, and head to a high point to appreciate the layout and the impressive views of the gardens. The elevated villa has views down the Amalfi coast and of the towns across the hillsides.
