Picture the most spectacular limestone cliffs, plunging dramatically into an azure sea with fishing villages hugging the coastline and you have only just begun to imagine the fabled Amalfi Coast. Stretching 50km along the Sorrento Peninsula in southern Italy, this much sought-after destination will always make us wax lyrically.
Just an hour and a half's drive south of Naples you will discover a spectacular destination with ever-changing land and seascapes and a unique dolce vita. With pretty fishing villages, like Positano, perched along the coastline and lively towns, including Ravello, Amalfi and Sorrento, to explore by car, or better still by boat, the Amalfi Coast has long been a favourite of Luxury Explorer. We particularly adore this area in Spring, early Summer and September, when life just couldn't feel better.
We have spent a decade selecting the very best luxury hotels and villas this special region has to offer – properties that insist on raising the bar on today's expectations of luxury year-on-year. For luxury hotels, choose from the minimalist chic of Casa Angelina, carved into the dramatic cliff-face in Praiano, the classic 5-star luxe of Hotel Caruso in sophisticated Ravello, and the aristocratic luxury of Positano's finest hotel, Le Sirenuse.
For an added sprinkle of seclusion without compromising on any 5-star comfort, discover our inspiring selection of private Amalfi Coast luxury villas, all bearing the discerning Luxury Explorer seal of approval. Each of these villas is unique, from an astonishing palazzo perched above Positano to a former fort down on the water, to a film director's lair high above the astonishing rocky coastline.
The only catch with such an exclusive destination is that availability is always limited, so it pays to reserve early and ensure you book the very best accommodation with the most spectacular views. Contact our concierge for advice and guidance on availability and reserve your Amalfi Coast experience with Luxury Explorer.
