Entrance to The PALAZZO MURAT
“Palazzo Murat enjoys a prime position just off Positano’s main drag down to the beach, yet is shielded from the worst of the crowds by its lush, exotic garden. With lovely rooms, an excellent restaurant, a small pool and an air of aristocratic living, it’s one of the nicest hotels in the town centre. “
This 18th century, L-shaped palazzo was once home to Joachim Murat, king of Naples and brother-in-law to Napoleon, and there is an air of grandeur (but not pomposity) about the place, especially in the vaulted public rooms with their antiques and fine paintings. An elegant wrought-iron gateway leads into the enticing arched courtyard, dripping with bougainvillea and shaded by big white umbrellas.
