The words Amalfi Coast already have discerning travelers packing their bags. Family-run since it opened in 1951, Le Sirenuse (named for the mythological sirens who lurk in a nearby archipelago) is set in an aristocratic former summer home. The property highlights the million-dollar view, with balconies, terraces and pools overlooking Positano's bay, with sunlit cliffside terraces by day and twinkling lights by night. With the town center, local boutiques and beach reachable via a 50-step staircase, it's easy to fall into a routine: eat, drink, shop, sleep, repeat — with a few pauses to inhale the scent of surrounding lemon trees. Rooms contain, in addition to antiques and original art, copies of John Steinbeck's writings on Positano, sure to inspire even the most cynical; to venture out, book an excursion to the beaches of Nerano or Capri. But come back before twilight for dinner at Michelin-starred Le Sponda — for the food, the view and the live music.
