Perched 1,000ft above the sparkling Mediterranean, Palazzo Avino overlooks some of the Amalfi Coast’s most postcard-worthy fishing villages. Over the years, it has played host to nobility and royalty, of both the hereditary and Hollywood kind. The season kicks off in April with the reopening of the Michelin-starred Rossellinis restaurant (for more casual dining, try the fresh pasta at the Terrazza Belvedere, and/or a sundowner at the Martini & Lobster bar). Serious sunseekers should hold out for the 1 May opening of Palazzo Avino’s Clubhouse By The Sea in the small town of Marmorata (a short drive from Ravello) with its beach platforms and swimming pool.
