Le Sirenuse is a wonderful place from which to enjoy the simple pleasures of Positano and the spectacular Amalfi Coast.
John Steinbeck, who visited in 1953, wrote 'Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn't quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.'

Paolo, Franco, Aldo and Anna Sersale, Le Sirenuse 1990
Le Sirenuse opened in 1951, when four Neapolitan brothers, the Marchesi Aldo, Paolo, Anna and Franco Sersale turned their summer house in Positano into a charming hotel, overlooking the bay of Positano. Today it has 58 rooms, furnished with all the comforts of a luxury hotel, while maintaining the atmosphere of a private home.
Franco, the youngest brother, who made a major refurbishing of the hotel in the 90's, sadly passed away in January 2015.
Le Sirenuse new generation is personified by Antonio, Franco's son, who studied at the Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne and worked abroad for many years. He returned to his family's hotel in 1992, and lives between Positano and Rome with his wife, Carla.
We are located at the center of the village of Positano, on the Amalfi Drive, 50 km from Naples. Our rooms and terraces, 70 mt above the sea, are an unbeatable oasis of peace and silence, with a breathtaking view.
