Why we love it...

Above the spectacular Amalfi Coast

The Place

The Parsifal (which Wagner composed in Ravello) retains a certain monastic simplicity along with its 13thC cloister. The former convent is still owned by nuns, but for many years now has been a family-run hotel.

On a recent visit we discovered that the place has changed hands, and is now run by Antonio Mansi and his young family. Signor Mansi comes from Ravello, and worked at the Parsifal as a teenager. He went on to become manager of the famous Danieli in Venice, before returning home to pursue his dream of owning his own small-scale hotel. It couldn’t be more different to the Danieli: though professional, the family are particularly friendly and willing to please.

While gradually upgrading the Parsifal (the hotel had become very tired), Signor Mansi wants to retain its simple feel. Certainly the panoramic but dowdy dining room could do with his attention, but it has heart-stopping views. Here, and on the creeper-clad terrace, honest food with creative touches is served (half-board is compulsory for three nights or less). Bedrooms are plainly furnished, and some are smallish: ask for the one with the terrace and the sea view. Recent reports have been positive.
