Hotels in Cilento Coast

Intimate property—just 30 rooms—on one of the most peaceful stretches of the Italian island. 



This 11th-century palace perched 1,056 feet above the Tyrrhenian Sea on a limestone bluff, was once favored by celebrities (Jackie Kennedy, Greta Garbo, Humphrey Bogart). There’s also a heated infinity pool, private gardens, and two restaurants.

Stay just outside the village at the Hotel Capo La Gala, a stone-studded cliffside lodge. The hotel has a nautical theme: porthole windows and hurricane lamps in the lobby, blue-and-white guest rooms accented with miniature model boats.

Art-filled Mediterranean hotel in Anacapri with the 10,800-square-foot Capri Beauty Farm, one of Italy's best spas.

Room to Book: Couples enjoy the Deluxe Seaside rooms, while families may prefer a Double Deluxe Pool and Garden Deluxe, with views of Monte Solaro.

In the middle of town, just up the street from tony Le Sirenuse but at one-fifth the price for a sea-view room, the California is the Amalfi Coast’s best budget find.

One mile outside town seems to be just far enough from Positano’s crowds to attract a constellation of stars (George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Franco Zeffirelli) to the coast’s most famous cliff-top hideaway, which spills down the sides of a rocky promontory, its terraced rooms discreetly hidden am

Nearly every room at this mannered villa tucked into the winding backstreets of Ravello has views over the verdant Dragone Valley descending from the mountains down to the sea.

The Prince of Belmonte's hotel (and primary residence) attracts a posh clientele, many of whom address the Prince of Belmonte as “Angelo”.

Three adjoining 19th-century buildings on a cliff overlooking the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius, owned and operated by the same family since 1834 and still containing many original furnishings.

Named after a white cat giving birth to three kittens in a lemon grove just south of Capri’s central piazzetta in the mid 19th-century, this small boutique hotel was built on those grounds by the Esposito family.

Ensconced in the hills above Paestum is Il Cannito, a four-room bed-and-breakfast opened in 2006 by Anna Maria Barlotti Gorga, a fiftysomething chef from the area.

Iconic 19th-century building steeped in old-world glamour, just off the lively Piazza Umberto Primo and near the island's famous Faraglioni stacks.

Built as a private villa in 1920 and later used as headquarters for American command in World War II, this boutique hotel was carved into the rock face at the southeastern tip of the island.

This charming spot is sing-out-loud gorgeous, and in its mellow atmosphere, we felt like we were staying at a chic friend’s house.
