Set in Cilento's National Park, amid its own extensive natural gardens with magnificent views of the bay, Hotel Hermitage is just over half a mile (900m) from the village of San Marco di Castellabate. Comfortable guestrooms, some looking out over towards the picturesque UNESCO declared world heritage hilltop site of Castellabate, are housed behind the stone-clad villa façade and traditional wooden shutters. The hotel also has an attractive and spacious restaurant, which has a terrace overlooking the pool. This terrace is the idyllic place for sitting back and relaxing on after a day at the beach, visiting nearby towns or having walked the trails that meander through the stunning national park. Facilities include a large swimming pool with separate children's pool and tennis courts. The Hotel Hermitage has its own private beach, where water sports are available, with a minibus service provided for guests (beach on charge). Due to its wonderful location, Hotel Hermitage is also a popular venue with Italians for wedding parties and functions.
