Villa Cimbrone is one of the most prestigious Hotels de Charme in the entire Mediterranean. The splendour and ambience of yesteryear permeate this 12th century residence. The Vuilleumier family, with its generations of experience in the hotel industry, conserves and protects the original architectural and decorative features.
Its vibrant atmosphere and the awe-inspiring beauty of the location have attracted famous politicians and aristocrats, as well as inspiring many artists and making it a meeting place for English people on the Amalfi Coast, including the famous Bloomsbury Group from London.
Over the years the villa has hosted many illustrious names from science and the arts, including Forster, D.H. Lawrence, Strachey, Keynes, Crick, Piaget, Eliot, Moore and Virginia Woolf. It has also welcomed figures such as the Duke and Duchess of Kent, Churchill, the Agnelli family and the Clintons. A place for passionate encounters, the villa has offered sheltered privacy for famous romances like Greta Garbo’s affair with Leopold Stokowski.
The most beautiful sight that I have ever seen in the world is the panoramic view from Villa Cimbrone on a bright winter’s day, when the sky and the sea are so vividly blue that it is not possible to distinguish them from each other. (Gore Vidal)
