Capri, Amalfi Coast, Lake Como - 25th Anniversary Trip

Jump to last reply

We are currently planning a 25th wedding anniversary trip to Capri/Amalfi Coast + Lake Como for May 27th thru June 7th, 2017.

Our travel preferences are as follows:

1. "Quintessential small village Italy" with spectacular sunset views and regional location.
2. On a scale of 1-5, seeking a solid 4+ full hotel or B&B offering quiet/privacy, rooms with perfect views of surrounding scenery, modern/updated facilities, superior service attitude, and on-site amenities (infinity pool, spa, fitness).
3. We believe there is nothing worse than "Overpaying for touristy, loud, outdated lodging and/or poor service!"
4. We plan to hike, swim (only pool and/or ocean), lounge and read books @ pool or beach, bike, leisurely stroll village streets/shops, eat great food, wine, and coffee, and otherwise people-watch from small sidewalk cafe.

We are seeking feedback on our questions below:

1. Capri vs Ravello as regional base - which is better? Are there other options we should consider? We prefer to stay at a single hotel in this region - a 6 night stay at either Capri's La Scalinatella Hotel or Ravello's Hotel Belmond Caruso.

2. Best village as base for Lake Como - Bellagio vs Como vs Maneggio vs Tremezzo vs Cernobbio? We prefer to stay at a single hotel in the Lake Como region - a 6 night stay in Bellagio's Borgo La Terrazze or Hotel Belvedere Bellagio.

We are also considering the following Lake Como hotel and B&B properties and welcome everyone's feedback on these properties. Are there other lodgings we should consider?

- Hotel Belvedere Bellagio
- Residence La Limonera (Bellagio)
- Splendor Luxury Penthouse (Bellagio)
- Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni (Bellagio)
- Hotel Il Perlo (Bellagio)
- Borgo La Terrazze (Bellagio)
- Villa d'Este (Cernobbio)
- Hotel Grand Tremezzo (Tremezzo)

Thank you, in advance, for your insight and guidance!

Best Regards,
