Hotel Rufolo

Via San Francesco 1, Ravello, Campania, 84010, Italy

D. H. Lawrence worked on Lady Chatterley's Lover during his 1926 visit (in Room 423), so it might be fun to revisit the novel's groundbreaking love scenes while at this hotel run for generations by the Schiavo family. The quarters are snug, but some rooms have balconies with gorgeous sea and sky vistas framed by the palm trees of the Villa Rufolo, just below the hotel. Author Gore Vidal could often be seen strolling along the path beside the hotel—he owned La Rondinaia, the villa at the end of the path, and lodged here after selling to a private investor in 2006.
