Located on the outskirts of Naples, Positano is a cliffside village, a gem waiting to be found, and Le Sirenuse is one of the best places to stay in this scenic region.
Considered to be one of the most comfortable and elegant hotels in Positano, Le Sirenuse is situated in a beautiful eighteenth-century mansion on a rocky slope leading down to a picturesque pebble beach. At Le Sirenuse you will always be welcomed with excellent service and exquisite cuisine – it’s no surprise that the hotel was awarded the title of “Best European Hotel” two decades ago. Le Sirenuse still belongs to the descendants of Sersale, who throughout all these years, have honored the traditions of hospitality which thrived in their family for years.
