Good beach, hotel and town all in one?

Jump to last reply

We are in search of a destination in Italy with a good beach, good hotel and good town. Great food is also required. Any suggestions?

Positano? Beach is pebbly but there are many good 4 star hotels so perhaps this is a good option? From there we can visit Pompeii and Paestum and other beaches easily? Is there an area in Positano that people stroll in the evening or is most of the strolling simply up and down many stairs?

Santa Margherita area? We were there years ago, beaches also were pebbly but perhaps the Amalfi coast is prettier and has more to see and do?

Puglia? Seems to tick all the boxes but we don't really want to stay in a Masseria. In terms of good hotels in or near a town and near a beach there don't seem to be that many options. Any recommendations? We are fine with smaller hotels and prefer them.

Sicily? Taormina looks interesting but the beaches are down a long hill and, in truth, we think we prefer the food in other parts of Italy. Plus the other areas of Sicily look more interesting in terms of touring.

Sardinia? Great beaches but a good 4 star hotel seems to have stratospheric pricing in the summer. And most of those don't even seem to get good reviews. Any recommendations?

Thanks in advance.
