At Palazzo Avino, you don't just enjoy views, you're part of the view. Because you have to expect stares from envious tourists when you're the one sipping an Aperol Spritz on the terrace of a rose-hued 12th-century palazzo, occupying a prime clifftop spot on the famed Amalfi coast.
This majestic family-run hotel has attracted aristocracy and celebrities for decades, but don't worry, whoever you are, the staff will treat you like you're Liz Taylor.
Rooms are all about good old-fashioned Italian romance; think Vietri tiles, 18th-century antiques and Bulgari goodies by the standalone bathtub.
Days are spent exploring the beautiful towns of Positano and Amalfi, followed by a G&T as you sunbathe at the Beach Club, a rocky shelf 100ft below the hotel (skip the steps; a shuttle service will drive you there).
WOW FACTOR Spice up your Instagram feed by ordering one of bartender Stefano's €21 'Fish Martinis', which blend strong booze with shrimp, fresh fish, lobster and caviar. Wimps need not apply.
