Overview

Situated on a hill rising from Paestum, and surrounded by swathes of aromatic laurels, strawberry trees, myrtles, brooms, carobs, holm oaks, and rosemary bushes, Borgo la Pietraia is the perfect destination for those seeking to reconnect with nature at a tranquil, rural escape in the Cilento countryside.

 

Offering 12 rooms in their charming sandstone village setting, the hotel has a charming home away from home feel with its colourful, modern design features, so you can enjoy “la dolce vita” like a native.

 

You can even bring your furry friends along with you to make you feel even more at home! There are many attractions to explore close by, including walking routes on Mount Soprano (where many locals go hunting for asparagus and mushrooms) and the nearby historical centre of Cappaccio, which boasts ancient ruins and monuments for the Classics enthusiasts among you.

 

All of this and more can be enjoyed before heading back to Borgo la Pietraia’s relaxing pool to cool off from the heat of the day, and prepare for a gastronomic journey of discovery in the on-site restaurant.

Rooms

Borgo la Pietraia prides itself on offering accommodation that oozes elegance and comfort.

 

Whether you choose a superior room, a junior suite or the master suite, you will be treated to stunning views and over the Cilento coast, as every room has its very own private terrace where you can enjoy the Italian sun setting over the azure waters with a glass of wine each evening.

Dining

Borgo la Pietraia boasts a magnificent restaurant, allowing you to enjoy their gastronomic delights either insider or out, amidst their terraces and gardens overlooking the stunning sea views.

 

Dishes on the menu range from scalded scallops with artichokes to start, to a range of pasta dishes (including the local Ziti with Cilento ragù, ricotta and cinnamon), as well as various cuts of meat for “secondi”, including guinea fowl leg, beef and mullet.

 

And if you have a sweet tooth, there’re plenty of desserts to choose from, from traditionally Italian tiramisu to the more adventurous dish innovatively pairing chocolate with wasabi!

 

Cilento is famous for its dairy delicacies made from Buffalo milk and just a couple of minutes from the Borgo La Petraia you'll find the Tenuta Vannullo, one of Southern Italy's excellences. The farm seamlessly integrates high-tech and artisanal practices to produce the finest ricottas, mozzarellas, ice-cream and yogurts you'll ever taste. Here the buffalos are looked after and even massaged.

Map

Borgo la Pietraia is nestled on the hill of Capaccio between the Soprano and Sottano mountains, in the Cilento National Park. It is a 7km from the archaeological area of Paestum. The hilltop location of Borgo La Petraia commands uninterrupted views over the Thyrrenian coastline from Punta Campanella, on the Sorrento Peninsula to the Bay of Trentova, which marks the beginning of the Cilento coast.  The proximity and ease of connections with Paestum, the Cilento Coast, the city of Salerno, the Amalfi Coast, Positano, Sorrento, the island of Capri and the ancient Pompeii, make Borgo la Pietraia the ideal starting point for trips and excursions to discover the most evocative places of the region.

This is the third occasion that Antonio has organised an Italian holiday for me. As it was a Birthday celebration involving a party of 10, the arrangements were complex, involving a villa, guides and attendance at the Palio on July 2nd. Without exception everything went exactly as planned. The recommended villa on the Montestigliano Estate, south west of Siena, was wonderful. Our guide made sure we had a full understanding of the history and culture of the Palio which meant that, with a spectacular view over the Campo from the apartment booked by Antonio, we were able to appreciate the event that much more. We shall certainly be going back to Italy with Expertoitaly.read more

Antonio with his meticulous planning and caring service has been solely responsible for the best Italian holidays we have had. His ability to offer excellent hotel accommodation which provides for every need and requirement is second to none . Hotels that are not main stream , that provide high quality of service in excellent locations are one of Antonio’s strength. It’s great to have a provider that know and understands his market.

July 2018 _________________________________ Have just completed another 10 day holiday arranged by Antonio at Expert to Italy. We went with Antonio's suggestion and spent 2 days at Matera and then the remainder in Pisciotta in the Cilento. Matera was amazing and felt completely different to anywhere else we have been in Italy. We loved Pisciotta and the hotel was wonderful with lovely owners who were great at suggesting things to do. We visited a buffalo farm, a vinyard and tooks boats to isolated coves with lovely clear water. All arrangements were absolutely faultless. We would never have found such lovely places without Antonio! 2016 _________________________________ We have just returned from a fantastic holiday suggested no arranged by ExpertTo Italy. Once again the organisation by Antonio was flawless and everything worked perfectly. We spent 5 nights by lake Maggiore and 3 in Cogne in the Italian Alps. Both hotels and locations were fantastic - particularly the Bellvue in Cogne. Please see trip advisor if interested in the hotels as I will give a more specific review there - I'm not a fanatic reviewer but both really deserve it. We have used this company for the past 5 years and Antonio seems to have a real gift for finding fantastic hotels and matching locations to his clients. I would not usually put the level of trust in anyone to arrange holidays for me that I have with Antonio but he has delivered every time and I can unreservedly recommend his services. Italy is a beautiful country with huge variety - if you describe what you like to Antonio and let him make suggestions then you will not be disappointed. Very definitely 5 stars from me. So - Antonio and team, please keep it up! Jonread more

Antonio delivered more than expected! Our family of four stayed at two beautiful villa's on the Amalfi Coast. Both of the locations were top class. Antonio provided excellent service and was always available if we had questions about the details of our trip. He was easy to work with and we would recommend his services to others traveling to Italy.read more
