Having read of Lee Radziwill’s carefree days in the enchanting village of Conca, we definitely had to include it on our tour of the Amalfi coast. As a base of exploration we chose the quirky Il Sarceno Grand Hotel. Built on top of a Moorish structure dating back to the 1500’s, the hotel is filled with an eclectic assortment of Moorish and Italian antiques – very much out of the pages of The World of Interiors.

Certainly we didn’t lack for inspiration, but it didn’t hurt to have a splendid view from here of a seaside villa once belonging to Sophia Loren!

On a bit of a hike down the many steps to the private beach, accompanied by an intoxicated melange of lemon trees, verbena, jasmine, oleander and pine in the air, I’m sporting a Yves Saint Laurent white cotton voile kaftan style shirt with whit silk braid trim, Uniglo pale pink jeans, navy blue suede loafers and sunglasses both by Gucci, Cartier “Tank Divan” from Raj Tolaram my fragrance is Creed Bois de Cedrat.

    Dear James,

    What a fabulous post ! Very glamourous and chic. Love that you mentioned Lee Radziwill and “World of Interiors” in the same paragraph… also you have a gift for understatement, which is always a mark of a gentleman. Thanks for sharing !

  11. This hotel is a paradise!
    It’s the most beautiful hotel in all the Amalfi area.

    small correction: the hotel is called Saraceno, not Sarceno 😉

  12. I love the location.
