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.
