House for rent from € 82/day in ScalaName/Address: *Casa Elena - Via Torricella
'Scala' means 'ladder' or 'flight of steps' in Italian, characteristic of this hill-top village which runs along the side of Dragon Valley right above Amalfi and adjacent to !avello" It is the oldest town on the Amalfi Coast and is the ideal location for people who enjoy country hill walks. Paths lead to seldom visited hamlets, small chapels and medieval ruins with stunning views over the coast and the valleys below.
Set in the middle of the Monti Lattari chain and dominated by the great mass of its cathedral, Scala is evocative of Rome with its #apitol, its towers and long perimeter wall. The ancient village was originally populated by survivors of the fall of the West Roman Empire, who were shipwrecked on the coast in the course of fleeing East to Costantinople. Set like an acropolis high above the sea, Scala was known as the lioness of Amalfi and over the centuries has shared the area's fluctuating for times of prosperity and periods of decline.
This small but beautiful property is situated close to the village center, in a .uiet position with magnificent views over the steep vineyards of Dragon Valley, the picturesque Commune settlements of Scala and Ravello and eventually the deep blue of the Gulf of Salerno in the distance. Newly rebuilt, Casa Elena is within a few minutes walk of a swimming pool (at the albergo 'argherita) and a central terminus for bus services to Ravello and the resort towns of the Amalfi Coast.
