£1,010: Hotel Palazzo Murat, Positano
Includes accommodation in a double room with full breakfast at the four-star hotel. "Positano is the crowning glory of the Amalfi Coast and the Palazzo Murat is the jewel in that crown. It was created from the restoration of an 18th-century baroque palace set in private gardens and is a beautiful and peaceful oasis in the centre of the town. Breakfast on the terrace is not to be missed," says Jonny Cudworth at Expedia (0871 226 0808; expedia.co.uk).
£1,438: Casa Angelina, Praiano
Includes accommodation with breakfast at this five-star hotel. "Ideal for couples on a romantic retreat, the Casa Angelina is a modern, boutique hotel overlooking the island of Capri and the Tyrrhenian Sea. With four nights for the price of five, this bargain break will leave money to spend in the hotel's own gourmet restaurant or one of the Amalfi Coasts' famous eateries," says Alicia Welsman of Cresta Holidays (0844 800 7020; crestaholidays.co.uk).
£998: Hotel San Francesco, Maiori
Includes transfers and half board accommodation at the four-star hotel. "It is a great time to visit the Amalfi Coast as the busy summer season has not yet started. The weather can be great and it is easier to get around and enjoy this beautiful party of Italy. The Hotel San Francesco offers a comfortable, great value base in the heart of the town opposite Maiori's beach and promenade," says Heather Green at Citalia (0871 200 2004; citalia.com).
