HOTEL VILLA CIMBRONE

HOTELS TO VISIT BEFORE YOU DIE (AMALFI COAST ITALY EDITION) | HOTEL VILLA CIMBRONE

Villa Cimbrone is a historic building in Ravello, on the Amalfi coast of southern Italy, dating from at least the 11th century AD, although little of the original structure is now visible. The building was much altered and extended, using a motley collection of salvaged architectural elements from other parts of Italy and elsewhere, by Ernest William Beckett (later Lord Grimthorpe), an English politician, in the early twentieth century. The alterations were of such an extent that the building is now more pastiche than original structure. The gardens were redeveloped at the same time. The villa is now a hotel, and the gardens are open to the public.

HOTELS TO VISIT BEFORE YOU DIE (AMALFI COAST ITALY EDITION) | MONASTERO SANTA ROSA HOTEL & SPA

Centrally located, the hotel is just a 20-minute car or boat ride from the most scenic towns along this glamorous coastline—notably Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. Although the villages of the Amalfi Coast are a magnet for the wealthy with their luxury hotels and million-dollar yachts sprinkling the sea, what characterizes the region is its effortless Mediterranean simplicity—cobblestone streets, fresh seafood drizzled in olive oil, bougainvillea-covered villas, sweet citrus scents wafting from abundant lemon groves, and unrivaled views.

An instant success, this property became renowned for its stunning views, sophisticated decor, exceptional hospitality and awarded restaurant. Now the Amalfi Coast’s prized jewel shines even more proudly bearing, with much love and pride, the name of its founding family.Palazzo Sasso has become Palazzo Avino.
