Set in 47 acres of land, with its own private beach, vineyard, golf course and farm, this beautiful 4 star hotel feels like you’ve been dropped into an Agatha Christie movie!
Tucked into a tall cliff with stunning views overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, its old world charm (Sofia Loren was a regular guest here), impeccable service, elegant and grand public rooms, spacious terraces overflowing with bougainvillea, this hotel has everything you’d need for a relaxing yoga getaway to recharge your batteries.
There is a swimming pool at hotel level, with fabulous sea views and the private hotel beach is reached by a 92-metre-high lift that takes you almost to sea level where terraces have been built for sunbathing. Here you’ll also find a casual-dining alfresco restaurant serving lunch on the terrace overlooking the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean.
This is an eco-venue with its own organic farm and vineyard that provides the hotel with farm to table fruits, vegetables, olive oil, wine, milk, cheese, eggs and homemade jams and preserves.
Breakfast and 3-course dinners are included daily (vegetarian and vegan options are also available) and are served by friendly waiters in starched white uniforms adding to the overall charm of this beautiful hotel. On summer days and nights meals are taken in the elegant outdoor restaurant on one of the two sunny terraces overlooking the sea. Please note long trousers are required for gentlemen during dinner and informal clothing for lunch for both gentlemen and ladies.
Rooms have a double or two single beds, and are on two levels, either with a shared terrace or a ground floor patio facing a shady wooded area. All rooms are en-suite.
There are two (shortly to be three) yoga shalas: a large outdoor circular shaded shala is situated above the swimming pool with views towards the sea, and a second indoor yoga and meditation room with large windows overlooking the gardens which is also available for the exclusive use of the students. The third shala will be a platform overlooking the sea just above the private beach – a perfect place for a spot of sunset yoga.
There is a small village with shops and cafes nearby, reached by taxi (€5), and other local excursions include an old town and market, thermal baths, and a boat trip so there are lots of options or just lay in the sunshine.
