Location & Area
Casa Orfeo is situated in Minuta, high on one of the spectacular hills of Scala.
Most people visit Ravello for the incredible views, but also the views from Scala are not less. From near the top of Scala in the hamlet of Campidoglio, the panoramic view includes all of Ravello, with the lush green gardens of the Villa Cimbrone at the tip of the promontory, the rugged mountains and coastline and the Bay of Salerno. Here can enjoy one of the Amalfi Coast’s quietest and most stunning views.
The little hamlet of Minuta can be spotted from across the valley in Ravello by the little church dedicated to Santissima Annunziata, this beautiful 11th-century church is thought to be one of the oldest churches in Scala. Minuta deserves its name, which means “small.”
The views from the little piazza next to the church of Minuta are wonderful. Looking down the valley you’ll spot the hamlet of Pontone and the ruins of the church of Sant’Eustachio dating from the 12th century. Hikers will enjoy the walk from Minuta to Pontone and continuing down the valley directly to Amalfi or up to the Valle dei Mulini to explore the mountain and visit the ruins of Amalfi’s paper mills.
Shops and restaurant are about 1 Km. away.
The bus stop is just 20 m. away (Bus to Minuta comes only 2 or 3 times a day) or in Scala centre (Bus almost every hour) and from here the SITA Bus line goes to Ravello - 2 Km. and Amalfi - 7 Km.
From Amalfi, SITA (Unico Campania) buses connect all the Amalfi Coast and Sorrento Coast towns. From the docks in Amalfi you will also be able to board ferries and hydrofoils to Positano, Capri, Salerno or Sorrento Coast and Naples, as well as go on mini-cruises for tourists.
If you are fond of archaeology, Pompeii, Herculaneum and Paestum are easily within reach, between 1 to 2 hours driving distance.
How to get there
There are several ways to get to Scala / 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.
