Hotel Il San Pietro

Neapolitan Riviera, Positano

  • A luxurious hotel part of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux group
  • Poised high above the bay with fantastic panoramic views over the sea

The luxurious Hotel Il San Pietro is widely considered to be one of the best hotels in Italy, and is part of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux group of hotels. It was converted in 1970 from a private villa with a chapel into the exclusive hotel it is today by its owner, Carlo Cinque, whose portrait still hangs in the hotel’s reception area.

Poised high above the bay in peaceful seclusion, Hotel IlSan Pietro is built into the rock face amongst panoramic terraces bedecked with climbing plants and bougainvillea. Each uniquely decorated guest room comes with a private terrace benefiting from far-reaching views across the Mediterranean. There are several elegant lounges in which to relax, decorated in the sophisticated local style with vaulted ceilings, hand-painted ceramic tiles and furniture upholstered in sumptuous fabrics. The Hotel Il San Pietro’s excellent one star Michelin-rated restaurant serves a variety of superb local and international cuisine using some ingredients grown on-site and, weather permitting, guests can dine outside on the two terraces. On one of the higher terraces is a freshwater swimming pool (normally in use April - October), with views reaching as far as Capri’s picturesque Faraglioni. While away the long days on the hotel’s private shingle beach or take advantage of the hotel’s spa facilities and indulge yourself with a selection of treatments and massages. From June to September, guests can spend a morning exploring one of world’s most beautiful coastlines with the hotel’s complimentary boat excursion.

Located just a mile from the shops, bars and restaurants of Positano, the Hotel IlSan Pietro provides free parking as well as its own 24-hour complimentary minibus service that will take you to and from the centre of Positano.

About the location
Holidays to Positano give you the perfect introduction to Italy’s glorious Amalfi Coast. Be prepared to be seduced by this lovely town, with its vertiginous houses of pastel pink, peach and warm terracotta spilling in disorderly fashion from the slopes of the Monti Lattari to the waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea.

In romantic Positano, hand holding couples negotiate narrow rock cut streets which meander past local shops and little cafés. Duck into an a gallery or boutique selling the best of Positano’s luxury goods, before stopping to take in the view from one of the little bars selling spritzers and epicurean nibbles. Alternatively, simply relax on the beach and take a moment to listen carefully for the legendary call of the Sirens of Li Galli.

If you’re feeling energetic and in search of the best views, head to the Path of the Gods, which is a marked trail that runs from Bomerano to Nocelle. Positano is not just about today, look closely and there are reminders of Roman soldiers, of Benedictine monks and of a time when Ottoman pirates cast a covetous eye over the Amalfi coastline.
Transfer Time
The hotel is 1 hour 30 minutes from Naples airport. Return private transfers included. To change your transfers or book car hire instead, simply call us once you’ve completed your booking.
