To start planning your vacation to Le Sirenuse
Le Sirenuse has been owned by the Sersale family since it opened in 1951. They still live and entertain in the hotel meaning it retains the original family-run feel that makes Southern Italy so popular.
John Steinbeck wrote of Positano in an article in 1953 "It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone. The houses climb
a hill so steep it would be a cliff except that stairs are cut in it...The small curving bay of unbelievably blue and green water laps gently on a beach of small pebbles."
With descriptions such as this it is unsurprising that Hotel Le Sirenuse is considered one of the most romantic and beautiful of hotels in the Amalfi Coast.

In summer the climate is hot and humid and the coast’s single road (SS163) is heaving, and often has long tailbacks. The beaches, restaurants and tourist attractions are full to the brim in the summer months.
