Hotel La Conca Azzurra


Neapolitan Riviera, Amalfi Coast

  • A small, characteristic, family-run hotel near the village of  Conca dei Marini
  • Magnificent views of the Mediterranean from the restaurant terrace

The characteristic Hotel La Conca Azzurra sits on one of the famous Amalfi Drive bends in an enviable position directly above the sea near the Emerald Grotto. 

Taking advantage of its superb panoramic position on a coastal cliffside, each of the 17 guest rooms has a balcony or panoramic veranda with views over the sea and as far out as Capri. Fresh interiors are comprised of cool whitewashed walls and tiled floors, and rooms are decorated with local Vietri ceramics.

The hotel's restaurant is well known for its regional seafood dishes that can be perfectly complemented by one of the bottles from the extensive wine collection of the owner’s cantina. Even the olive oil for this restaurant is produced from the old olive groves that surround the house.

Before dinner, take advantage of the views of the Mediterranean from the leafy restaurant terrace, where you can sit back with a refreshing drink and watch the sun set over the few remaining fishing boats. On the tranquil rocky beach, reached via a number of steps and a path, lies a private bathing platform for hotel guests.

Signor Salvatore Criscuolo, whose family originally converted their home into this charming hotel, has created a relaxed and informal atmosphere. The hotel’s warm hospitality dates back to the 19th century, when the Grand Tour travellers passing by in carriages would stop off for refreshments. There is a painting displayed in the hotel depicting this very scene and, even today, those passing by may stop for a drink.

Due to its location, the hotel is ideal for a shorter stay or Citalia recommends car hire for visiting and exploring the nearby areas of Amalfi, Ravello, Positano and Praiano.

The hotel has 17 rooms (official rating 4 star) Child prices apply to ages 2-12 years. Minimum stay 3 nights.

About the location
Conca dei Marini is a tiny fishing village commune with just a handful of amenities, yet there is a quaint rural charm here that can’t be found in many other places along the Amalfi Coast. Relatively untouched by tourism, Conca dei Marini is perhaps best known for being the home of the hidden Grotto dello Smeraldo – a remarkable karst cave that rivals the Blue Grotto found in nearby Capri. Journey inside and the cave will divulge its secret feature – an inner chamber where visitors can witness a dazzling reflection of bright emerald light as the sunlight is dramatically refracted. Elsewhere in this cliffside village you can find a smattering of authentic restaurants, often with mesmerising sea views, as well as a sleepy marina that perfectly encapsulates the charm of the Italian coastline. Better still, Conca dei Marini is just a short drive from Amalfi and Furore, making it easy to explore these stunning towns during your getaway.
