The charming, medieval village of Scala, lies only 2 km far from Ravello. Its name means “ladder” or “flight of steps” in Italian, characteristic of this hill-top village which runs along the side of the Dragon Valley right above Amalfi and adjacent to Ravello. It is the oldest town on the Amalfi Coast and is the ideal location for people who enjoy country hill walks. Paths lead to seldom visited hamlets, small chapels and medieval ruins with stunning views over the coast and the valleys below. Set in the middle of the Monti Lattari chain and dominated by the great mass of its medieval Cathedral, the commune of Scala is divided into six small hamlets or “borghi”: Scala center, San Pietro, Santa Caterina, Campidoglio, Pontone and Minuta, each rich in history, hidden paths and enchanting views. This is a timeless gem and favoured location for visitors seeking a truly authentic medieval atmosphere, traditional restaurants, fresh products and fresh mountain air, “far from the madding crowds” of other local tourist resorts.

Being Minuta the best starting point for walking tours, Villa La Scala is the ideal place for people who enjoy country hill walks and the beautiful atmosphere around the house. Within a few minutes walk is the heart of the village of Scala with coffee bars, restaurants, a grocer’s shop, open air cafés and the stop for the SITA bus that goes from Scala to Ravello, Amalfi and other towns on the Amalfi Coast. From the quay of Amalfi, there are ferries and hydrofoils to the other villages along the coast as well as to the Islands of Capri and Ischia, to Sorrento and Naples and also rent boats to explore the surrounding coastline, and visit the many small grottoes. This attractive, old-world-style villa offers spectacular views, privacy, and special comforts to be shared with friends and family. The exquisitely landscaped grounds are surrounded by old stonewalls, which give the property the feeling of a gracious mini-estate.

How to get there

There are several ways to get to Ravello / Amalfi Coast from Naples Capodichino Airport or Naples / Salerno Train station either by renting a car or by public transport. It is also possible to arrange private transfer directly to the your property.

Ask us for quotation.

Once at the property you can get around fine without the car as parking in the towns is hard to come by and expensive. Public Buses operate year-around connecting Ravello to Amalfi, where are buses to all the Amalfi Coast villages and Sorrento area. Ferries (from May to October) operate a service between Amalfi - Positano - Sorrento - Capri Island - Naples and Salerno.
