About The Amalfi Coast

Easily accessible from Naples airport - and reached via a thrillingly winding cliffside road - this fifty mile stretch of coastline is just littered with beautiful towns and resorts, so it can be very, very difficult deciding on the best places to stay on the Amalfi Coast.

The beauty of the Amalfi Coast is legendary. Elegant, colourful towns cling to steep hillsides with postcard perfection. Crenelated lines of cliffs sheer down into glittering seas via promising coves and the green hilltops are scented with lemon.

As well the the legendary beauty, the Amalfi Coast is also home to some beautiful legends - namely the Sirens of Homer's 'Odyssey'. And why would these ladies of surpassingly loveliness choose to live anywhere but under these clear, bright blue skies and pretty harbours.

Our Amalfi Coast Collections:

What not to Miss

  • Sorrento, one of Amalfi's most famous towns was named after the Sirens. Called 'the jewel of the Amalfi Coast', there are actually a number of rivals to this moniker.
  • Positano is the darling of location scouts and postcard photographers, while polished hilltop charmer, Ravello has both the views and the famous literary credentials.
  • Amalfi itself is a delight with white-washed alleyways, flower-filled balconies and a sandy beach.
  • Maiori is a great choice for families with its large beach, Conca dei Marini boasts a stunning location and has an exclusive feel to it, whilst Praiano is the town to visit if you like things a bit quieter (most people head on to neighbouring Positano). But really it would be a shame not to see them all…

Don't forget that this is a hugely popular region, so if you want to bag one of the best places to stay in the Amalfi Coast, you'll have get organised and book well ahead.

Best places to stay in the Amalfi Coast

Spectacular Sorrento

Sorrento overlooks the Bay of Naples and on to Capri, Naples and Mount Vesuvius. It's this view which makes it one of the best places to stay on the Amalfi Coast. Sorrento is also a warm and colourful town, with an impressive Duomo, an excellent arts and crafts museum, and mellow, sunlit piazzas to meander through towards markets and boutiques.

  • Once a private palace, the Bellevue Syrene has been romantically refurbished so that it's now a palace for many. With rambling terraces, breathtaking views, marble floors, vaulted ceilings, private pools and a private beach.
  • Capo la Gala offers five star luxury cut into the cliff face with a hanging sea terrace, Michelin starred restaurant and a myriad of spa treatments. The Michelin star restaurant means it's also one for foodies.
  • Maison la Minervetta is a fun, boutique hotel with a nautical theme. Only 15 minutes stroll from the centre of town, the views are excellent.
  • The Villa Eliana is outside Sorrento, but with views of pretty Sorrento and the gulf beyond means it deserves inclusion. Originally built in the 60s as a private vila for the wife of a Neapolitan ship-builder, the house has fab. retro architecture, modern decor and just six rooms.
  • The Palazzo Marziale is a traditional townhouse with 10 colourfully decorated rooms with a retro but elegantly Italian vibe. You are close to local cafes and restaurants and they have a great cafe in house.

The Pleasures of Positano

Location scouts go weak at the knees when they round the bend in the Amalfi Coast road and spy Positano nestled in the cliffs, rising like a staircase from the bright blue sea towards the citrus and olive groves. Positano's unbleached peach and pink buildings are stacked so neatly with windows poking above the buildings in front that there are plenty of properties with exquisite views. Some of the best views are of the town itself.

  • Built atop a hill, the Villa Franca has truly sublime views of Positano and beyond, especially from the private balconies and the rooftop terrace and swimming pool.
  • The Villa Magia is a superb six room boutique hotel with stunning views and tasteful artwork. The rest of the decor is simple and elegant and there are some lovey antiques. There is a lovely pool and spa.
  • The Marincanto offers views with added chic. A smart, boutique feel, pale decor and an infinity pool which seems to merge with the sea.
  • The centrally located Palazzo Murat has been converted from a 17th Century townhouse and is a romantic, luxurious, bougainvillea strewn option.
  • Villa La Tartana is perfect if you prefer a small hotel There are just ten rooms and one family sized apartment and the proportions are generous, just like the breakfasts served on the terrace.
  • Miramare is another good choice for families - though you need a head for heights - the private beach is 210 steps below the glassed-in breakfast terrace.

Ravello

Wagner, D.H. Lawrence, Virginia Woolf and Gore Vidal all spent time here, and they're not the only people to argue that Ravello's views of the coastline are the best on the coast. This is a green and leafy town with an other-worldly romantic atmosphere. The light and architecture have ensured that it's a popular spot with artists as well as writers.

  • The Palazzo Avino oozes 1930s Italian film star glamour. Perched on a cliff overlooking fishing villages and pretty bays. This hotel is five star luxury from the two Michelin starred restaurant to the open air gym. This is a once in a lifetime place to stay.
  • Villa Maria is also a good spot for foodies, view-lovers and romantics. High end but more laid back, they even run cooking classes.
  • Ravello is know for the gardens and Villa Cimbrone adds to this fame with a beautiful botanical garden which sprawls towards the cliff face. Inside the design is stylish and romantic.

For Once in a Lifetime

  • Il San Pietro di Positano is spectacular. Five stars worth of vaulted-ceilings, private beach, private balcony, gorgeous infinity pool and sumptuous rooms. All with a view, of course.
  • Converted from a monastery, there's nothing monastic about Monastero Santa Rosa Hotel & Spa now. The celestial views from its perch on a cliff top are to die for and the hotel captures the essence of "la dolce vita" with its location, understated but immaculate style and incredible spa facilities.
  • Hotel Santa Caterina in Amalfi is luxury in a stunning spot with a private beach reached by a glass lift with travels through the cliff face!
  • Le Sirenuse in Positano is an 18th Century palazzo turned family run hotel with a Michelin starred restaurant and a collection of beautiful balconies and terraces.
  • The Villa Treville is just along the coast from Positano and is a 15 suite hotel converted from an opulent estate property. There are plenty of ornate tiles and marble and a private beach, perfect views and the feeling off being the guest in someone’s beautiful home.

For Families

  • Perfect for anyone who can afford it, the beautiful Bell Epoque era Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria has a fabulous spot overlooking the gulf. There are 91 rooms and suites - some of a very generous size -plenty of history and a romantic restaurant.
  • One of the best places for families is the Grand Hotel La Medusa. It has great views of Vesuvius from the huge pool terrace and is comfortable and elegant. With rooms starting from £100 a night it's also a good option if you're on a budget.

For Great Value

  • The Lidomare, just down the cliffs from Ravello is both a cosy hotel and charming family home with high ceilings, antiques and tiled floors. Rooms start at £86 per night, so this a great family beach holiday choice.
  • The Grand Hotel La Medusa in Sorrento is reasonably priced with rooms starting from £100 per night, is very comfortable and has excellent views of Vesuvius.
  • Positano’s four room Villa Yiara is a chic and charming B&B with yellow and white decor and magnificent views from private terraces. Some rooms have baths or hot tubs too. Rooms start from around £100 per night.
  • Or you might stay in one of the Villa Rosa's 12 rooms, which have some of the very best Mediterranean views imaginable from their big balconies where breakfast is served. Rooms are large and white with aquamarine tiles on the floor. Rooms start from around £105 per night.

Travel Information

  • Naples Airport is the nearest airport to the Amalfi Coast and from here you have a choice of travelling by car, train, bus or ferry to most of the main towns and ports we’ve mentioned.
  • If you want to hire a car - which we strongly advise if you want to really see this spectacular region - we recommend you visit our online partner Rentalcars
  • Despite summer being one of the most popular times to visit the Amalfi Coast, it’s very hot in July and August, so if you’re not just looking for a sunny stretch of sand and you have a choice about when to travel you might want to opt for May, June or September.
