Wow! Five stars to Roberto and his family[ for their friendly and helpful attention], to our wonderful accommodation, to the mesmerising views, to the breakfasts on the terrace accompanied by home-baking. This is a place to treat yourselves to at a price that will leave you smiling.
You shall need the local bus or taxi from Amalfi to get you to Punta Civita when you arrive but then you can walk down to Amalfi in 20 minutes or up to Ravello in around 45 minutes.
Loads of thanks from Meryl and me for a great stay.
Don't go anywhere else if you're visiting the Amalfi coast or you'll kick yourself!

- The name "Punta Civita "draws it's origin from it's spectacular location on the Gulf which today hosts many tourists from all over the world but at one time served as a lookout to guard from the invasions of the Saraceni.

One of our guests, Francesca N. put it best when she sent this memory to us after her stay: "Punta Civita is a small paradise! It is like brilliant emerald stone set in a cliff. The rooms are both beautiful and spacious and Roberto's genuine warm hospitality is like non other on the Amalfi Coast. The mild climate, the scenic, panoramic views from the terrace, the good food and friendly embrace of the owners all contribute to making this B&B a wonderful spot to visit now and then so as not to lose sight of the things that matter in this phrenetic life! " Punta Civita is the ideal place for a declaration of love, a honey moon, an anniversary, for inspiration or just simply to read a good book... ... more less
