amalfi coast

amalfi coast italy

The Amalfi Coast is synonymous with romance and one of the most evocative names in travel.  With dramatic cliffs, impossibly pretty towns and villages, and views to die for.

The recent opening of Monastero Santa Rosa, a 20-room boutique hotel in a 17th-century cliff-top monastery in the tiny town of Conca dei Marini, means Italy’s Amalfi Coast can finally claim a destination spa worthy of the area’s romance and sophistication.
 
We also recommend the superb Palazzo Avino (formerly Palazzo Sasso) near Ravello.  We love its private beach club. And there's the ultra-luxurious Belmond Hotel Caruso for a really special occasion.
 
If you're simply looking for a villa or apartment to rent for a week or two, we would recommend:
  • La Trasita - a stunning, romantic one bedroom apartment with a wonderful rooftop sun deck and commanding views of Positano and the sea. 
  • Casetta Angeli - pretty 2 bedroom villa in private hillside estate overlooking the sea, with fabulous shady terrace.
  • Casale Principe - gorgeous 7 bedroom villa with large gardens, swimming pool and direct access to the sea from its own private sun deck.

The Amalfi coast in southern Italy runs from Punta Campanella to Salerno and includes the picturesque hilltop towns of Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. Superb coastal terrain for those who love walking and hiking.  It is also home to some of Italy's finest restaurants, all precariously perched along a beautiful coast of rugged cliffs and sandy coves.

When to go

The best time to visit is in spring (April to early June) or autumn (September and October). In summer, the climate is hot and humid and the coast’s single road is heaving, and often has long tailbacks. The beaches, restaurants and tourist attractions are full to the brim in the summer months.

Everything else

Monastero Santa Rosa is located 80 minutes south of Naples Airport, 25 minutes from Positano and just 15 minutes from Ravello and Amalfi.

It's just under 3 hours flying time to Naples Capodichino from London from here you can collect a hire car or take a transfer to the hotel. The journey by road takes around 80 minutes.
