Wonderful clifftop villa bursting with artistic treasures
Arriving at Villa Cimbrone is rather like walking into a living temple of art. We were instantly smitten by its incredible hilltop location, fabulous gardens and heart-stopping clifftop views.
Know It All
Hit the Spot
High above the Amalfi coast in clifftop Ravello.
Come here for...
? Ravello romance in spades. • Heart-thumping views over the Amalfi coast. • Vintage showbiz credentials – Greta Garbo famously fell in love here. • Fabulous clifftop gardens with statues, gazebos and temples. • All the feel of an aristocratic Italianate villa.
There's a huge heated outdoor pool with loungers, a beautiful portico restaurant with views down to the coast, and a can-do concierge desk where boat trips and other treats can be arranged. The gardens are open to the public during the day, so save them for evening and have them to yourselves.
Good to know
Villa Cimbrone can't be reached from the village by car – be ready to walk through Ravello's narrow lanes.
Rooms and suites
17 rooms and two suites.
Rooms are evocative and rich in period detail, with antique pieces and majolica tiles. The best look down over the valley, and some of the suites even have magnificent frescoed ceilings. Some have jacuzzi baths, and all have flatscreen TVs and internet access.
Take a bedroom facing out over the sea. No need to close the shutters then...
Eat & Drink
Neapolitan and Mediterranean dishes using organic fruit and veg from the Villa's own gardens are on the menu in the elegant vaulted dining room. You can also dine out on the terrace on warm summer evenings.
Breakfast is served until 10.30am. Look out for the home-made marmalades.
Available morning and evening.
See & Do
Wander around Ravello's pretty streets and alleyways and get a taxi down the hill. To really enjoy the Amalfi coast drive to Positano, take a local bus or a chauffeured car option – it's a white-knuckle cliff-edge ride and the road can be crowded in summer. You can visit Capri or other spots on the coast by hydrofoil.
There's a spa just half a kilometre from the hotel.
Try to get tickets for one of the open-air productions in the Ravello Festival.

You'll need to park ten minutes away from Villa Cimbrone in the village. Call the hotel on arrival, and a porter will be in the main piazza within minutes to whisk your bags away on a buggy. It's a very pleasant (though mainly uphill) walk to the property.Trains
