Hotel Villa San Michele


Stay a while... lulled by lapping sea and fragrant hanging gardens - cool, light, balconied, classic, intimate, unpretentious


12 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Utterly, unashamedly romantic! Stone steps tumble down from terrace to terrace past lemon trees, palms, bougainvillea and scented jasmine to the rocks below, and a dip in the deep blue sea. It’s a treat to stay in this small, intimate, family-run hotel, with the most delightful staff to minister to you and the most sublime views – watch the ferries slip by on their way to Positano or Capri. San Michele may stand at an apparently busy road junction but its hanging gardens and bedrooms turn towards the sea and you live in perfect tranquillity. The hotel building is at the top – light, airy, cool; almost every room has a balcony or terrace and you are lulled to sleep by the lapping of the sea. Cool floors are tiled in classic Amalfi style or white, beds have patterned bedcovers. All is charming and unpretentious and that includes the striped deckchairs from which you can gaze on one of the finest views in Italy. Delectable aromas waft from a cheerful kitchen where Signora is chef; the menu is short, the food delicious. Atrani and Amalfi are walkable, though traffic is heavy in summer; for the weary, a bus stops outside.

We spent 1 week in Villa San Michele, beautiful hotel with welcoming staff but the most amazing part was the food - outstanding! Great location for discovering the Amalfi Coast, close to bus stops and ferry stops.

I cannot fault it in any way. The owners were friendly and helpful from the start, organising a very careful taxi driver (Rosario) to collect us from Naples Airport upon arrival. Driving across the mountain range to Ravello was a wonderful experience. We were delighted at the warm welcome, the magnificent setting of this family run hotel and the delicious food and wine enjoyed in the evenings. The rooms were comfortable, clean with the most spectacular view. I was slightly wary of being on the main coastal route but we didn't hear the traffic at all, not even when sunbathing close to the sea.


Fantastic hotel, quiet, lovely food, beautiful view, caring family run. Nice rooms, all sea views. Steps to the sea for long uninterrupted swims. Shaded in the afternoon, so sun lovers need to find a beach. Short walk to local village square for coffee and ice creams. Beautiful restaurants nearby.


We loved this place. Incredible staff, simple but beautiful rooms and a location that would be the envy of many hotels. A short walk into Amalfi or a 10 minute bus ride to Ravello. The sea was warm, safe, dolphins spotted within metres of the swimming platform. Would return at the drop of a hat anytime! Children welcomed but be aware that it is a quiet, small hotel. Dinner was home cooked, local fish and pasta - delicious. Many options for lunch nearby or a handy shop opposite the hotel selling all sorts of cheeses, meats and bread for picnics


Fantastic- beautiful location with a balcony overlooking the bay of Naples, excellent food and excellent hospitality


This is a beautiful beautiful place. The views are breath taking and the rooms were spotless and everything worked. The staff were extremely helpful and generous. I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay.
