Le Sirenuse Positano

Italy

This former summer home of a noble family is "in a beautiful fishing village" on the Amalfi Coast. The style is Moorish Baroque, with whitewashed walls and vaulted ceilings. Rooms have glazed floor tiles and shuttered French doors, and most have private terraces; the property has "a big reputation, but we were slightly underwhelmed." La Sponda employs local ricotta and pork in its Neapolitan cuisine. The champagne and oyster bar, open from mid-May through mid-October, occupies its own terrace, and its barmen pour drinks in handblown Murano glasses. "The service could not be better."
