L'Antico Episcopio is such a wonderful B&B in Pontone, very close to Scala and Ravello. The host, Anna, is amazingly welcoming and obviously takes great pride in her home. We were a group of 10 staying in 4 of the rooms, all of which were immaculately clean, and well laid out with all of the amenities you'd expect, plus the... More

My disclaimer here is that when we visited, the coast experienced a rare snowstorm. We were EXTREMELY COLD but all the heaters broke. On the last day the water tank stopped working so we no longer could even flush the toilets. They refused to give a refund. Aside from this I must say that the host was initially quite friendly...

I had the loveliest 4 days staying with Anna and her family at LÁntico Episcopio in Scala on the Amalfi Coast. The service was amazing - beautiful breakfast each morning and lemon chello and cake bought to me each evening. Anna is just beautiful - kind, thoughtful, thorough. The accommodation is set overlooking other castles and the sea, close to... More

Wow! This place is gorgeous. Anna has wonderful taste and has done the place up beautifully. The room was beautiful, spotless. Breakfast was wonderful - great cappuccino, delicious food. The view from the room just amazing. Pontone is a really wonderful place to stay, utterly charming.

L'Antico Episcopio is a small, beautiful hotel in the idyllic medieval village of Pontone in the hills above Amalfi. A cleverly converted Bishop's Palace, the rooms are spotless with modern bathrooms and mine had a stunning view over the lemon groves down to Amalfi. There is also a solarium with the same stunning views. Signora Anna and her family are... More

I would not recommend this accomodation to anyone interested in self-catering. The latter involves the use of the manager's kitchen and we felt we were allowed to use it on sufferance. We were also charged extra for using the kitchen, which is minimally equipped. Pontone is a quiet, stunningly beautiful, un-touristy village. Our room was spacious and beautifully furnished. However,... More

L'Antico Episcopio: Date July 20, 2011 We booked this hotel because it was one of the few hotels that could accomodate a family of 5 (3 children).
