Villa San Michele is a charming little hotel on the Amalfi Coast at Castiglione di Ravello. With picture perfect views over the glittering Tyrrhenian Sea, it is the perfect spot to spend a relaxing holiday relishing the sea the sun. A charming refuge from which the most attractive towns such as Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento can be easily reached in one of Italy’s most beautiful parts.
The hotel is immersed in delicately lemon and bouganville scented, flower-filled gardens, where to enjoy the utmost in peace and tranquility. A private pathway cut in to the rock leads down to the crystal clear sea below. Here, a sundeck furnished with loungers, deck chairs, and beach umbrellas is the perfect spot where to pass a few hours lulled by the gentle sounds of the sea.
For the Amalfi inhabitants who will go to Paradise it will be a day like all the others.R. Fucini

The DNA: Owners Nicola and Rosa Dipino, who hail from the Amalfi Coast, bought this summer private residence of an Italian shipowner in the 1980s. The many Arabesque features of the villa, which was built in the 1950s, comes from the mind of the Turkish architect. Uniquely set (if you are driving here, expect some hair raising pins in the road), overlooking the Mediterranean and up to the park of the Villa Cimbrone and “La Rondinaia” – once owned by Gore Vidal. Nicola and Rosa, first generation hoteliers, oversee the running together of the albergo with their children and are everyday on the spot to make feel all of the guests like home.
