Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Once a royal Neapolitan residence, the Hotel California sets out 15 classic Italian rooms on a hillside overlooking Positano – one of the prettiest towns on the Amalfi Coast.

The Cinque family has run the Hotel California since its first beginnings, so a warm welcome is guaranteed. And each room is unique. Some have original painted ceilings and tiled floors, while others come with hot tubs. They’re all topped off with spectacular sea views.

Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast is one of the most recognisable images of Italy – a 50-kilometre-long coastline of plunging cliffs topped with sky-scraping viewpoints. The towns step down the cliffs in a jumble of pastel houses and church domes, before fetching up at tiny harbours.

Although alike in looks, each place has its own forte. Ravello is known for its terraced gardens and clifftop summer music festival. Amalfi has a grand eighth-century cathedral, while Positano offers the Byzantine Church of Santa Maria Assunta.

Amalfi Coast holidays also leave you perfectly poised for exploring the rest of the region – from Sorrento, Ischia and Capri to Naples, Pompeii and Vesuvius.
