  • About this holiday

    Palazzo Avino is a hotel that has remained consistently popular with our clients. It occupies a former 12th century palace in the picturesque town of Ravello, which climbs part of the verdant Amalfi Coast. This light and elegant hotel is ideal for long relaxing breaks, and the Michelin-starred Rossellinis Restaurant makes it a favourite with keen gastronomists. Views from the bedrooms and terrace capture the natural beauty of the high rise of the shoreline and the calm ocean. It is perfectly placed for day-time excursions to Amalfi, Pompeii, Naples, and Herculaneum. Scenic boat trips are also available from Amalfi to Positano and the island of Capri.

    Our opinion

    The luxurious Palazzo Avino occupies a very privileged location in Ravello on the Amalfi Coast. 

    Hotel description

    Formerly the Palazzo Sasso, Palazzo Avino continues to receive very favourable reports from our clients since its opening in 1997. Situated in the heart of Ravello splendidly overlooking the Amalfi coast, the Palazzo Avino occupies a 12th-century palace now completely refurbished yet with its regional Moorish influences having been retained. The colour of pinkish terracotta on the outside, the interior is cool and light with marble and pale coloured furnishings. The Caffe dell’Arte is an elegant lounge-bar serving snacks and afternoon tea, Terrazza Belvedere offers fresh pasta and light bites, whilst one floor below is the gourmet one-Michelin-starred Rossellinis Restaurant. The bedrooms face both the sea and the mountains. They all vary slightly in size but are comfortably and elegantly furnished in a restrained, understated fashion. In the marble bathrooms, bathrobes and slippers are provided. The views are quite superb from the hotel and many a peaceful hour could be spent on the terrace sipping a refreshing drink or up on the sun deck enjoying the panorama of the Amalfi coast below and the hills around Ravello. An added bonus is the open-air swimming pool at the hotel, which enjoys a splendid situation on one of the garden terraces with views of the sea. There is also a spa with a hydropool, steam bath, sauna and treatment rooms. The hotel also has its own beach club, Clubhouse by the Sea, situated a 15-minute drive from Ravello, which open 1st May. The Palazzo Avino is an ideal place for honeymoons and special occasions. It enjoys a great reputation, so early booking is advisable.
