Casa Lume is a gorgeous apartment, conveniently situated within a short walk of Ravello town center. It is set in the ancient part of the village, enjoying spectacular sea views. The house was restored in 2018, adding all modern comforts including Wi-Fi Internet access, portable A/C units, dryer, washing machine, Satellite TV, winter heating, new kitchen equipment and utensils.
This holiday accommodation has been tastefully furnished with modern tiles and furniture in shades of white; spacious rooms and large French doors enrich the beauty of the apartment, rendering it extremely bright and airy. An L-shaped balcony is partially shaded by a wooden porch and runs the length of the apartment, offering views over the sea and the towns of Minori, Maiori, and the cozy hamlet of Torello on a hillside below Ravello. The terrace is furnished with outdoor dining furniture and chairs for sunbathing.
Serene and peaceful, Casa Lume is perfect for a couple\'s romantic getaway or a small group seeking a place to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Amalfi Coast. There are nature paths just outside the door, which allow guests to reach Scala, Amalfi or Minori on foot, starting from a point high up in the hills, suspended between the sky and the sea where Ravello is situated. If you enjoy walking then these walks are not to be missed: at every step brief glimpses of breathtaking views open up in front of your eyes and these will become unforgettable memories that will stay in your heart after your holiday has ended.
