Tempted by the idea of a holiday on the Amalfi Coast next year? If so, the expert advice is not to hang around if you want the best choice of accommodation and location. Here are our top 5 for the Amalfi Coast – but be quick!
Quirky, stylish and contemporary, the Maison la Minervetta is crammed full of vintage collections and Vietri pottery, with twelve gorgeous rooms with huge picture windows that look out over the Neapolitan Gulf.
Top spot for romance is the view towards Capri from the terrace of the Relais Blu. Perched at the tip of the Sorrentine peninsula amidst the olive groves and lemon-scented terraces, the hotel has eleven rooms and a Michelin-starred restaurant.
The seven-room Villa dei D’Armiento is glamour personified, a 19th century Liberty-style villa with twinkling Murano glass chandeliers, original art and a rooftop penthouse suite with its own private lift and terrace. Outside, camellias, palm trees and Mediterranean colours and scents fill the vast garden.
With a cliff top location above Positano and a short stroll from a sandy beach, Villa Emi is as good as it gets when it comes to villa stays. We love its sea views from every room, ocean-facing pool and five en suite bedrooms.
A private pool and direct sea access down from its bougainvillea-swathed terraces ensure that Casa Bulba is snapped up year after year by families. Wander into lovely Maiori and explore Minori and the little village of Atrani.
