|This wonderful Luxury wedding Hotel stands in one of Ravello's most enchanting spots and from there your gaze can wander out to the furthest point of the Gulf of Salerno, the Cilento Coast and the archeological inland area of Paestum.
Built in the 12th century it still preserves reminiscences of the original medieval structure while the architecture of the building is a mosaic of time and style: Moorish arches, Greek and Roman marble columns from Paestum, multicolour ceramic floors made of tiles with geometric and floral patterns from Vietri.
The romance begins when you enter the richly hued lobby with its ancient atrium of arched colonnades, green plants flowing from every nook, masses of fresh flowers, and gorgeous antiques. Each small corner is an oasis of tranquility, from the intimate bar to the cozy antique-filled tiny lounges. Refined taste is evident: each individual piece of furniture and ornament belongs to the family home and all rooms and communal areas have multicolour ceramic floorings dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries.
Rooms and suites feature a mixture of arches, corridors, corners, niches and passageways a composition of 'nests' for the imagination, which opens onto the sun of Ravello and onto the Amalfi Coast's mellow nights.
|Three are the options for your reception:
- a lovely dining room with frescoed ceiling, a large wooden arch (once the entrance to an alcove) and terracotta floors with ceramic tile inserts. It can accommodate up to 60 people;
