Near the Amalfi Coast (Positano 15kms) this ancient 17th century Benedictine monastery offers guests a magnificent view over Sorrento 15kms and the Gulf of Naples. In the central part, or "Foresteria", four guest rooms have been restored on the first floor, furnished with care and simplicity with antique furniture. 4 comfortable rooms with private bathroom were been restored in 2005. These rooms, one showing an authentic fresco dating back to 1700, were traditionally the friars' cells. Guests can enjoy breakfast in the large kitchen with its precious original 16th-17th century maiolica tiles and magnificent fireplace, or in the sun overlooking the orange groves and the sea. The spacious rooms on the ground floor hold numerous family heirlooms, portraits of family ancestors and entire wardrobes containing period dress.
The building nestles amidst 12 hectares of olive groves and chestnut trees.
