Off-beat ‘editorial,’ specially written for The Garden

The Albergo Ristorante Garden
is located at the centre of the historic village of Ravello,
a few steps from the main Piazza and Cathedral.
It's named for the celebrated garden of its immediate neighbour, the Villa Rufolo, where composer Richard Wagner found inspiration for "the Magic Garden" of his last major work, "Parsifal".
Our Garden, like the Villa, has what a visiting travel writer defined as “a view to die for.” with three wide terraces overlooking the Amalfi Coast: An official “World Heritage Site” that another lyrical line rates as “perhaps the most dramatic and inspirational meeting of land and sea on Earth.”
In a way, Ravello has also been a place of pilgrimage for generations of writers & artists at least back to Boccaccio and his friend, Dante Alighieri. The village, as we view it, is an old-world “Carmel-on-the-Med.”
Why the Garden?
☼ Value for money (locally and generally on the Coast.)
☼An hospitable family hotel with a genuine special talent & practiced skill in taking good care of guests.
☼An experienced, long- time, specialist host for weddings & other party celebrations
