The highly decorated family-run property is one of the jewels of Positano. In true southern Italian style, everything at the Sirenuse is a family affair, including its boutique. Lovingly overseen by the owner’s wife, Carla Sersale, the white stucco space feels like an unfussy beach shack—albeit one that purveys coveted Italian classics (Fornasetti plates, Porselli ballet flats). Don’t miss the Sirenuse specialty, the house fragrance, cocreated by Marina Sersale, Carla’s cousin.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
