GOURMET FOOD The finest cui­sine for epi­cures

Harper's Bazaar (UK) - - 150 The World's Greatest Hotels -

When John Stein­beck, writ­ing for Bazaar, vis­ited Le Sirenuse in 1953, he and his wife fell in love with the ‘old fam­ily house con­verted into a first-class ho­tel, spot­less and cool, with grape ar­bors over its out­side din­ing-rooms’. The over­all ef­fect is en­chant­ing, as if one were stay­ing with re­mark­ably hos­pitable friends, with

ex­quis­ite good taste, supremely high stan­dards of house­keep­ing, won­der­ful staff and a Miche­lin-starred restau­rant. Il­lu­mi­nated in the evening by 400 can­dles, La Sponda serves light Mediter­ranean cui­sine based on fresh lo­cal in­gre­di­ents and in­spired by the great culi­nary tra­di­tions of Naples and the Amalfi Coast.

From about £330 a room a night (www.sirenuse.it).
