Stretching along the southern side of Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula, the Amalfi Coast offers a captivating combination of scenic splendour, fascinating topography and historical evolution.

The Amalfi Coast is a stretch of coastline in southern Italy overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Gulf of Salerno. No wonder UNESCO listed it to be an outstanding example of a Mediterranean landscape, lined with small towns precariously perched between mountains and the sea.

What makes it one of the most popular destinations in the world? It dazzles with mountains plunging into the sea, striking towns, verdant forests, mysterious grottoes, rough cliffs and iridescent bays. Also enchanting are high cliffs; coves; small bays; terraces dotted with citrus fruits, vines and olive trees; high-fashion shops and artisan workshops … and so much more.

Now you can partake of some of the exclusive luxury as you seize the opportunity to stay at Casa Angelina, a stunning boutique hotel delicately perched above the azure tranquillity of the Mediterranean.

Casa Angelina overlooks expanses of the Mediterranean Sea from a cliff-edge perch in the quiet and picturesque Campania village of Praiano, which is only a 10-minute drive from Positano and 15 minutes from Amalfi. Sitting atop the curvaceous cliffs, Casa Angelina offers a sublime slice of modern minimalism, with an emphasis on barefoot luxury and top-level gastronomy.

Breathtaking views from Casa Angelina will ensure you enjoy the magnificence and splendour of the Amalfi Coast.

Stylish, but in the most laid-back and luxurious way possible, the entrancing contemporary decor dazzles, with white-on-white and minimalist aesthetics reigning supreme in practically all the lounge spaces. From the azure sea and sky outside to the contemporary artworks on display inside, understated chic is Casa’s design ethos and subtle details are its raison d’etre.

Neighbouring Positano is picture-postcard perfect in the distance, and on a clear day, you’ll even get to see the famous Faraglioni rocks that whirl off the coast of jet-set centre Capri. The best part? You can see it all in near-total privacy from the hotel’s pool deck.

The spacious sprawl is another appeal. Casa Angelina is a modern classic that captures the infectious charm and character of the Amalfi Coast. It is the perfect place to experience La Dolce Vita on the grandest scales!

You have use of a private beach, hidden away 250 steps below within the privacy of a dreamy cove, a lively beach club that knows how to keep the party going all day long, a relaxing spa for when you need an extra dose of pampering, private boat trips up and down the coast and to the local sights, and for moments of peace and serenity, a garden filled with wildflowers and beautiful shrubs to keep you feeling Zen throughout your stay.

Casa Angelina is chic and secluded, and in such surroundings, pampering is not too difficult to handle.
