I have just returned from my first trip to Italy, having stayed for 1 week at Le Villette. This is a small complex of 11 apartments almost in the middle of Ravello - it is an excellent location. They are very quiet, there is some slight traffic noise from the valley which is the only criticism I have. The pool is clean, plenty of space to sunbathe on an adjoining terrace and the family who own it are very friendly. The views are fantastic even though you are not directly on the coast.
They also have 2 lifts so even if you are infirm/unfit/have heavy bags you can still get to all floors easily. The apartments are well equipped should you want to self cater, however the restaurants are all nearby and you can get great take-away pizza literally down the street! You can walk to two historic vilas and the area is generally very good for walking. We hired a car but be warned parking all along the Amalfi coast is limited and expensive - you can pre book a space at Le Villette for 15 euro a day which is not expensive for Ravello.
There is a music festival on during peak summer months which keeps Ravello buzzing, great atmosphere, live music, fireworks etc.... its all very Italian, no chips & gravy here, all the better for it as well.
