Villa Cimbrone Garden

Villa Cimbrone is an old farmhouse in Ravello on the Amalfi coast with views over the Gulf of Salerno that was transformed into a fortified palace by English politician Lord Grimthorpe in the early twentieth century. Vita Sackville-West contributed to the current design of the garden, which is English in style but with views of the Amalfi coast. The garden is laid out along the clifftop and includes a Temple of Bacchus and Roman statues. The villa is now a luxury hotel.

Via S.Chiara, 26, Ravello (Sa), Campania, Italy, 84010

    The principal walk to the far end of the garden is by far the most significant part of the garden..the planting to the left is fabulous[see 185Queen's pic] At the far end the view out over the sea and landscape is spectacular.

    The rest of the gardens aren't really so opulently planted, although some areas have roses and there are some Hydrangea bordered walks. The structure is sound: it just needs one or two more areas as strikingly planted as the main walk.

    A beautiful garden with best view of Ravello.
