The beautiful hill town of Ravello
Three reasons why you'll love it here
- The delicious Mediterranean cuisine served in the "Il Flauto di Pan" restaurant.

- Villa Cimbrone's gardens: the most beautiful in Ravello, if not the world.
Hotel Villa Cimbrone is in the beautiful hill town of Ravello, situated about midway along the extraordinarily scenic Amalfi Coast.
Nestled within a magnificent park overlooking the sea, the Hotel Villa Cimbrone is a 10 minute walk from the town's center over stone paved walkways that offer breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding country side.
In the 12th century, villa Cimbrone was an aristocratic mansion, thought to have been built over the remains of an ancient Roman residence.
In 1904, the Englishman Lord Grinthorpe, Ernst William Beckett, a connoisseur of art with refined and cultured habits whose social circle included members of London's Bloomsbury Group, purchased the building and its gardens and undertook their restoration, a project he discussed with some of his eminent friends who frequently visited him in Ravello.
Among the famous people who were his guests we find such notable figures as Lytton Strachey, E.M. Forster, D.H. Lawrence, John Maynard Keynes, Piaget, Sir Winston Churchill, and the Duke of Kent. Villa Cimbrone was also the place chosen by Greta Garbo and Leopold Stokowsky for their unforgettable encounters.
The historic atmosphere of the Villa Cimbrone hotel's rooms has been carefully preserved as seen in the frescoed vaults, stone fireplaces and floors paved with majolica tiles from Vietri sul Mare, the nearby town famous for its ceramicware. At the same time, they offer all the modern comforts one could desire.
Guests appreciate the aura of peace and tranquillity that surrounds and pervades the hotel, its discrete sense of privacy and its refined and courteous staff which have made Villa Cimbrone the hotel of preference for an elite clientele.
The hotel's "Il Flauto di Pan" restaurant, serves exquisitely presented cuisine inspired by the great Mediterranean culinary tradition.
