Hotel Palazzo Murat is a little oasis in the centre of Positano. As soon as you enter this 19th century residence from Positano’s bustling pedestrianised street, you’re immediately surrounded by immaculate Mediterranean gardens with scented lemon and orange trees and exotic plants. It’s a stunning hotel that’s been carefully decorated in a classic yet minimalist Neapolitan style. Whitewashed walls are accented by local art and antique furnishings, and vietri tiles are laid out on the floor. The décor continues in the comfortable rooms that offer a peaceful retreat with plenty of space and a private terrace or balcony with views of the gardens or the sea.
We recommend trying out the hotel’s restaurant on at least one night of your stay (payable locally). It’s popular with both guests and locals and serves excellent local cuisine. The terrace is an ideal dining spot during the summer when you can enjoy the shade of the well-established lemon trees. At the edge of the garden, you’ll find the pool and a large sundeck equipped with comfy loungers. The views over Positano and sea from here are spectacular.
Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 25 mins by private car from Naples airport.
