The Guest House of the Ravello Arts Council was created by renovating an ancient tower overlooking Ravello and the sea of the Amalfi Coast, completely immersed in the green of its gardens in the pretty village of Minuta di Scala. It is 90-square meter big and it sleeps 7 people into 2 separate and beautifully appointed vacation houses, each with comfortable outdoor living spaces. They can be rented either separately. Both apartments have independent roof terraces and a gardens, all with a wide and splendid views of steep cliffs that dives into the sea, covered by terraces on which lemon trees and vineyards are grown .
Until a few years ago the house, built in the 14th century, was still used by the farmers who worked in the large garden that surrounds it. The recent renovation, in addition to providing it with all the comforts necessary for a pleasant stay, has highlighted its architectural merits: the rooms are characterized by vaulted ceilings typical of the oldest buildings in the area, the external stairs are made of worked stone by hand and the flooring of the terraces is made with the cocciopesto technique, the same used by the ancient Romans for their villas on the Amalfi coast. The interiors are extremely bright and airy, they have been renovated and elegantly furnished with a mixture of traditional, elegant and modern furniture and fittings, and all to an excellent criteria to offer comfortable holiday accommodation.
In the gardens an equipped area has been created to host the chamber music concerts of the Ravello Concert Society in the summer, which guests of the Guest House are welcome to attend for free.
Normally used for the artists of the Ravello Arts Council, the Guest House is now also available for those wishing to spend their holidays in a quiet and inspiring place.
The tower is divided into two independent apartments, "Allegro con brio" and "Andante grazioso", respectively with two and five beds, both with kitchenette and bathroom with shower, panoramic terraces and equipped areas in the outdoor gardens.
Located a few steps from the beginning of the CAI 351 and 357 trails, the Guest House is the ideal starting point for excursions to the Valle delle Ferriere, Amalfi, Agerola and the plateau of the Santa Maria dei Monti Refuge.
