Neapolitan Riviera, Positano
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.
