Casa Ulysses, a private home set among a lushly terraced hillside is found off of the winding approach road leading up to Ravello in just under a mile. From 900 feet above sea level, heavenly views over the sapphire blue Mediterranean are enjoyed from several perfectly placed outdoor patios, a hot tub area and most of the rooms inside. With its own little lemon grove, flower filled paths and exquisitely manicured garden areas, this is a tropical oasis.

From the local parking area, a 150 yard pedestrian lane ends at Casa Ulysses' gated entry which leads down to this home's three terraced levels. They are reached from outdoor stairways set along both sides of the home with about 30 steps between each level - agility is necessary for this seaside retreat. The middle level's garden offers an outdoor Jacuzzi perched over the sea that's heated or left cool according to your wishes upon arrival.

Casa Ulysses is made up of three independent suites entered from the outside. One suite is on the upper level with three bedrooms, and two suites are on the middle level with each one sleeping two guests. The lower or garden level is where everyone flocks to spend together time whether it's in the professionally equipped kitchen with an adjoining dining room, the covered dining patio with a barbecue grill or the inviting outdoor living room where at the touch of a button, transparent wall panels retract into a wood beamed ceiling transforming it into a breezy garden oasis.

The entire property is air conditioned and fully screened. Each bedroom comes with its own private bath richly decorated with local ceramic tiles. The upper level suite has a living/dining area and a kitchen. The smaller suites have kitchenettes and a sitting area.

Heating, air conditioning, luggage porter service, a hearty continental breakfast every morning, daily towel changes and a mid-week cleaning are all thoughtfully included in the price. At additional cost, guests may order home cooked meals served at the villa or more cleaning. To become better acquainted with nearby Ravello, your hosts offer a complimentary mid-morning visit to a Limoncello shop to taste lemon based liqueurs followed by a visit to their ceramics store to explain the craft and extend a discount on purchases.

Ravello, the most charming of the Amalfi coast villages offers unsurpassed sweeping sea views, fragrant cloistered gardens, an 11th century Duomo and a variety of dining and shopping choices. The town's bus stop has frequent service to Amalfi with connections to Positano and Sorrento. A ten minute drive leads to the coastal village of Minori and the ruins of Villa Romana, a 1st century Roman villa. Pretty Maiori with a small sandy beach or Amalfi with ferry service from June through October heading to Positano and Capri are 15 minutes away; Praiano and its hidden little beach coves: 25; Positano: 45; Sorrento or Pompeii: 60; Naples: 90.

Protect your valuable vacation with Travel Insurance from Allianz. The Rental Postponement Coverage is not available on this villa.
