Positano

Hotels in Positano

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

Nothing beats Le Sirenuse for traditional, dignified luxury.

Long a jet-set playground, Italy’s Amalfi Coast is still accessible, thanks to a handful of affordable hotels that includes La Rosa dei Venti.

What began in the 1930’s as a single house rented by future hotel mogul Carlino Cinque is now a bougainvillea-covered, 16-room hotel just 200 steps (albeit vertical) from Positano.

Flowers are the theme at this cliffside, 150-year-old villa hidden behind vines of bougainvillea along Positano’s main drag.

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.
