Rich and interesting is the history of this villa which was roman noble Marquis de Cinque family's manor, an history which blends with Ravello's and the Amalfi Coast's. The structure, while preserving the elegant forms of a lordly mansion, in the years has undergone noteworthy redecorations which have fashioned its actual splendour. In all of the premises, halls, staircases and public areas it is still possible to admire the antique marble floors and in the rooms and the bathrooms hand painted Vietrese School majolica tiles.
The Palumbo family, owners from four generations, since 1934 with great grandparents Vincenzo and Orsola, still personally manages the hotel with grandchildren Francesco and Giuseppe who, thanks to the experience acquired in hotels and restaurants abroad, devote themselves to the hotel with youthful spirit but with the same attention and commitment of their predecessors
Rooms : Formerly a country mansion, Villa Maria prefigured a different layout for the rooms, which the lords separated by class distinction in master's rooms, guest's rooms, family's rooms and relative's rooms. Presently they are differentiated as Junior Suite, Superior and Standard all with elegant furnishings; they are charming with all the hand painted Vietrese artisans' majolica. Each room has a bathroom with shower or whirlpool; the Junior suites and the superior rooms have both. In all rooms there is a TV and in most cases two TV, one visible from the bed, the other from the living area. All rooms have a terrace or a balcony with sea-view, one room as a large veranda.
