The Amalfi Coast
Hotels in The Amalfi Coast
On a cliff a half-mile from Amalfi, the whitewashed Villa Scarpariello could be your wealthy Italian friend’s private retreat.
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.
Alongside the bay of Naples, this carefully designed boutique hotel by British owner Michelle Lowe is located on the second floor of a 17th-century palace, with eight rooms constructed from natural wood, linen, and stone—predominantly polished white limestone.
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.
The grounds of the 18th-century hotel are perfect for hiking—you’ll explore sprawling apricot groves, a medieval tower, and two nearby Franciscan monasteries.
