Dint' a Torre Bed & Breakfast
'Dint' a Torre' Bed & Breakfast (which in the local dialect means 'in the tower') is located in a 3-story house built in the 20th century, recently restored, to offer its distinguished guests a relaxing atmosphere in the heart of medieval Pontone - the 'Village Museum' between Amalfi and Ravello.
Located on the hillside and surrounded by lemon trees and vineyards, Dint' a Torre is just a stone's throw from the sea. A unique site offering tranquility and a breathtaking, panoramic view of the blue sky, the green hills and the shimmering sea of the Amalfi Coast.
'Dint' a Torre' Bed & Breakfast is owned by the Palumbo family - a distinguished and noble family originally from the enchanting Campania region of Southern Italy.
The message we wish to give to our Guests is the same that we have received. We are three siblings who were brought up and lived for sometime in the 'old tower', sharing the beauty of our childhood, the most significant period of life. Then, we soared just like three pigeons to discover new places and bring our message of peace and serenity.
Overlooking Amalfi, Pontone is a picturesque hillside village roughly 200 meters above sea level. Currently a district of Scala, Pontone was part of the Municipality of Amalfi until the early 20th century during which time it was a popular destination for the clergy and noble class of the Amalfitan Duchy who were in search of the casual and relaxed atmosphere the village had to offer...
Today Pontone is still a quiet and rural village that enchants every visitor with the renowned warmth and hospitality of its villagers, its aristocratic houses, bell towers and three churches of great historical and artistic value. Pontone's daily life is based around its main square or 'piazza' featuring the medieval church of St. John the Baptist, which dates back to the 12th century. Around the same square, you will find two restaurants/pizzeria offering superb local cuisine and a coffee bar where you can sit right under the trees in the square enjoying a good 'espresso' or a cold beer.
Pontone is also an excellent starting point for excursions to the other centers along the Amalfi Coast and, especially for nature and mountain trail lovers, to the 'Valle delle Ferriere' or towards the famous 'Torre dello Ziro'.
In conclusion, as late Mons. Cesario D'Amato wonderfully described it in his book 'SCALA' published in 1975, 'the guest will finally enjoy a small world, simple, poor but extremely pleasant, in complete contrast with the big, urbanized, discontent, grumpy, disrupted world because far from the purity of nature, far from that admirable Artist whom God is...'
