The BEST hide-away in Amalfi Coast, the sunny South of Italy!
"Terrazza Ravello" is one of the three (3) private rooms available for bookings at Dint' a Torre Bed & Breakfast in Amalfi Coast, the sunny South of Italy. Terrazza Ravello is a double room (which can be converted into a triple by adding an extra bed) featuring en-suite bathroom and panoramic balcony. The room rate includes homemade breakfast and tax.
"Dint' a Torre" Bed & Breakfast (which in the local dialect means "in the tower") is located in a 3-story house built in the 20th century, recently restored, to offer its distinguished guests a relaxing atmosphere in the heart of medieval Pontone - the "Village Museum" between Amalfi and Ravello. Located on the hillside and surrounded by lemon trees and vineyards, Dint' a Torre is just a stone's throw from the sea. A unique site offering tranquility and a breathtaking, panoramic view of the blue sky, the green hills and the shimmering sea of the Amalfi Coast in Southern Italy.
If you enjoy walking through nature, head downhill as Amalfi is just a few hundred steps away! Same route, this time uphill, to Ravello, the "City of Music", to visit its historic villas and monuments. It takes about half an hour by car or by boat to reach beautiful Positano where you will enjoy getting lost in its winding avenues while visiting the great shops, antique stores and art galleries.
As our goal is to make your stay an unforgettable experience, you will certainly enjoy the goodness and freshness of our homemade breakfast delicacies including our signature yogurt cake with lemon or orange jams...
Looking forward to welcoming you as our guests!
See you soon...

Overlooking Amalfi, Pontone is a picturesque hillside village roughly 200 meters above sea level. Currently a district of Scala, Pontone was part of the Municipality of Amalfi until the early 20th century during which time it was a popular destination for the clergy and noble class of the Amalfitan Duchy who were in search of the casual and relaxed atmosphere the village had to offer...
Today Pontone is still a quiet and rural village that enchants every visitor with the renowned warmth and hospitality of its villagers, its aristocratic houses, bell towers and three churches of great historical and artistic value. Pontone's daily life is based around its main square or "piazza" featuring the medieval church of St. John the Baptist, which dates back to the 12th century. Around the same square, you will find two restaurants/pizzeria offering superb local cuisine and a coffee bar where you can sit right under the trees in the square enjoying a good "espresso" or a cold beer.
Pontone is also an excellent starting point for excursions to the other centers along the Amalfi Coast and, especially for nature and mountain trail lovers, to the "Valle delle Ferriere" or towards the famous "Torre dello Ziro".

The best place to stay on the Amalfi coast if you are looking for genuine Italian hospitality! Our hosts Angela and Antonio gave us the warmest welcome, almost as if we were long-lost family. The freshly made lemonade from Angela's garden lemons was a refreshing treat. Though I speak Italian, their daughter, Maria, who speaks perfect English, was on hand to assist with communication if necessary or with other queries/information. After settling in, Angela gave us a quick tour of the village of Pontone, taking the time to explain the bus routes, how to get to/from Amalfi etc, and a about the facilities in the village. The B&B was incredibly clean and comfortable. The daily breakfast on the terrace looking out across the valley onto the village of Pogerola was a special treat, no only for Angela's delicious, home-made cakes and selection of home-made jams and preserves! Mmmm. Our room was made up every day by the time we got back - it was like being in the best hotel, just with more genuine people. We chose to stay in Pontone as we wanted a place a bit removed from the noise of Amalfi, but still accessible to it and to Ravello. We were not disappointed. Amalfi is easily reached going down by stairs in about 20mins, and Ravello is about a 30min walk away. Note, there are stairs everywhere, so the times will vary depending on how fit you are. We walked to Ravello and the nearby villages, down to Amalfi by the stairs and also down through the Valle delle Ferriere, where we bathed in the very cold river, which, since the weather was hot and humid, was very restorative. At the end of each day, we found Angela and Antonio ready to answer any of our questions or help with whatever we wanted, though they were never intrusive. We could not have been better looked after. Special thanks to Maria who made a trip out of her way to deliver to us a phone charger that I had left behind. Angela, Antonio and Maria could not have been more helpful, welcoming and genuine. We really felt as treated as part of the family. We highly recommend staying in Pontone and at Dint'a Torre B&B and will definitely stay there on our next trip to the region. Thank you Angela, Antonio and Maria for such a wonderful stay with you!
Amazing views in a quaint little town nestled between Ravello and Amalfi. The hosts were great! They were extremely welcoming and helpful. Hotel standards for cleanliness without the sky high price tags. Breakfast consisted of homemade jams made from local fruits. Would definitely stay here again and have already recommended this B&B to other friends.
The Dint' a Torre Bed and Breakfast was absolutely wonderful and the perfect place to stay in the Amalfi area. Although we never met in person, Domenico was incredibly responsive and gave us everything we might need leading up to our stay. Upon arriving we were greeted by the hosts, Angela and Antonio, who promptly led us to the terrace (with a heart-stopping view of Pontone and the surrounding valley all the way to the sea) and served us homemade lemonade made from lemons grown across the footpath. It's an easy drive (or a challenging but rewarding hike) down into Amalfi - and we recommend checking out the neighboring Atrani, as well - but you have everything you need at Dint' a Torre. The people in Pontone are extremely welcoming and during our stay we managed to only meet local residents, which was exactly what we were looking for! The town is perfect for a post-meal stroll through the stone paths and I wish we could have stayed longer (forever). Dint' a Torre is a must visit.
Domenico was not at home but his parents were and they were so adorable. They do not speak English but it did not matter, we communicated perfectly with only a few bumps. Angela made us feel so at home and took us on a tour of Pontone. The town is incredible, it is tucked in the mountains off the Amalfi coast- near the towns of Amalfi and Scala. The restaurants is literally a 50 foot walk our their back door, and for breakfast she made us homeade jams and cakes. The rooms are gorgeous and clean with a balcony view. Unreal scenery- loved them!
