“We are a small hotel in the largest excavation site of Magna Grecia.” With these words the owner of Hotel Paistos invited us to Paestum.
The house is located only 300 m from the sea and close to the famous ancient Greek temples - ideal for all those who seek to combine in their holidays both bathing and cultural excursions.
The owners wish to arrange for a serene and at the same time contemplative holiday feeling for their guests… in which they perfectly succeed: the family-run hotel with its 10 rooms can truly be called a “petit hotel de charme“. Opened in 1997 and renovated in 2006, it not only offers its guests comfort but also that “little bit of something”. The rooms are characterized by happy, harmonious colours. Pictures of artists who have stopped in Paestum create a special flair.
The room we have chosen for you has its own balcony, on which you may let the evening pass soothingly outdoors. On the inside, air condition provides for comfortable temperatures. The standard fitting includes satellite TV and Telefone. Your bathroom is equipped with shower/bidet/WC and hairdryer.
Upon request, we can arrange for holiday apartments which are located in the hotel’s Dependance about 100 m from the main building (own price list). They are laid out for up to four persons and include one double, a bathroom with shower/bidet/WC and a living-cum-dining room with sofa bed (1-2 persons) and kitchenette. There is also a terrace with outdoor seating accommodation.
On the large terrace on the upper floor you feel the warming rays of the sun by day and gaze at the twinkle of the stars above Paestum by night.
The garden is the best spot to read and to idle. You find interesting and curious books about Paestum, the history, culture and cuisine of Southern Italy in the owner’s small library. Of course you may borrow your “personal favourite” for the duration of your stay.
In Hotel Paistos you can chose between dining in the dining hall and on the restaurant terrace with view of the garden.
Lean back and be spoiled: the hotel cuisine has its focus on local specialties. When selecting the dishes, the Marino family pays a lot of attention to the use of seasonal products. Fruit and vegetables are mainly from organic farming. Fish and meat are bought from local farmers. The owners of the hotel are noticeably proud of the fact that the ingredients for their dishes originate “della nostra terra e del nostro mare”, from their soil and their sea.
The selection of wines which includes a number of flavoursome Cilento brands completes the menu.
The hotel offers pick-up from the train station Capacico, which is about 3 km away, or will organize a transfer from Naples. Please ask.
Discover during your holiday at Hotel Paistos the diversity of the Cilento!
Water rats find beautiful beaches and clear water along the coast.
Lovers of extensive hiking tours will not be disappointed in the national park.
For the culturally interested, apart from the temples already mentioned, excursions are possible to Pompeii, Herculaneum, Velia or Padula.
Hotel Paistos is member of the group EcoWorldHotel, an association of italian hosts, that commit oneself to the protection of nature and their local region. In their accommodations efforts are made to ensure the economical use of resources like water and energy, as well as the reduction of litter.
