    The location is superb, the bed is extremely comfy, breakfast is amazing and the host goes above and beyond to help you enjoy your stay. She often dropped us off into the square so we didn’t have to walk up the steep hill. 5/5 for this location!

    I cannot say enough about this B&B. My husband and I traveled around Italy for our honeymoon and this was our favorite place to stay! From the moment we checked in we felt right at home. Marie and her son greeted up with fresh lemonade on their beautiful terrace that overlooked the mountains and the sea. But the magic began when we entered our own room. It was beyond clean and charming. To make it even better we had a private terrace that overlooked the most beautiful view and Marie made us a homemade tiramisu to celebrate our honeymoon. It was a great location for visiting Ravello but having some privacy in a quiet area. Sunrise views in the mountains and then at night the music from the Minori below and Ravello above carries to the terrace - so romantic! We loved everything about our stay and cannot recommend it enough!

    Though we enjoyed our stay thanks to an amazing host Anna, the B&B is a bit isolated. It is a quite a bit of a hike to any restaurants or the town center. Also the taxis will not come in all the way since the road near the property is narrow. Even if you get dropped closest to the property there is another 90 steps you have to climb. Definitely not recommended for people who can not move around easily. The view from the property is breathtakingly beautiful. Anna provides ample breakfast including fresh figs from her trees! Yummy! She does not speak any English but I used an app to translate from English to Italian and had no problem communicating. Anna’s sweet nature made our stay enjoyable :)) She is a sweetheart!

    Refuge at the Poets Refuge

    What a great place, the villa was a lovely old house, modernised, yet charming. Lots of steps to & from, but the walk up was lined with beautiful plants and shrubs, and loads of pot plants Terraced farming all around, loads of lemon trees. And the views, just breath taking. We overlooked the valley, and the bay, just beautiful. Our room was very clean, comfortable, and en suite with lovely hot shower Breakfast every morning was a treat with our host, Anna. Homemade jams, and bread, with perfect cappuccinos! I must admit we did not do it justice. Such a lovely place to explore Ravello and Amalfi from. Our host left a few local takeaway pamphlets around, and they even delivered. The local area was great to explore, beware of the very narrow, twisty roads though! We really enjoyed ourselves, and our lovely refuge was just what we needed after hustle & bustle of our busy lives. And near enough to the main square, nearby restaurants and bars.

    Lovely view with a host that was extremely nice, friendly and courteous. Property was typical for the beautiful area but is a challenge to drive to...

    Beautiful location, with a spectacular view. A little off the beaten track but a great place to relax. Breakfast is good and the owner is extremely friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended.

    Beautiful View!

    We enjoyed our stay at Il Refugio del Poeta. It was very clean, quiet and we had a beautiful view of the coast from our private balcony. Anna provided us with a delicious breakfast. We especially enjoyed the homemade cake & jams. The B&B is about a 20min walk/stair climb from the city centre. Very cute town to explore.

  • 6,0.Good

    Valerio and his mom were very kind hosts, offering us delicious pear lemon cake and limoncello on arrival. It was really really good. Because it was a long way up and down by stairs with luggage, Valerio came to pick us up and bring us to the bus stop the next morning. It was a clean place and a nice view, but note that there is no air conditioning and it is quite away from the town by foot. I would suggest Ravello as a day trip from somewhere else.
