What began in the 1930’s as a single house rented by future hotel mogul Carlino Cinque is now a bougainvillea-covered, 16-room hotel just 200 steps (albeit vertical) from Positano. Each of the rooms has a balcony or terrace overlooking the bay, as well as vaulted ceilings, white-washed walls, antique furniture, and terracotta floor tiles. A private apartment with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and living room is also available for larger groups, especially families. Although there is no restaurant on-site, Miramare’s sister hotel Palazzo Murat nearby gives guests a 10% discount in its restaurant.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
