Next to Salerno Harbour, Villa Poseidon features a large sun terrace with swimming pool and views of the Gulf of Salerno. Surrounded by greenery, it offers air-conditioned rooms with Mediterranean decor. Wi-Fi is free throughout. Breakfast is buffet style and includes hot drinks and croissants. Drinks are available from the bar and can be enjoyed out on the terrace or in the garden. Rooms at Villa Poseidon Maison De Charme are decorated in blue pastel shades and feature a minibar and an LED TV. Each one is soundproofed, and has a private bathroom with a hairdryer and toiletries. The hotel also features a sauna, and massages are available on request. Steps starting from the garden take you to the centre of Salerno in 5 minutes on foot. The villa is ideal for exploring the Amalfi Coast, which starts in Vietri sul Mare only 5 minutes' drive away. Amalfi is 20 km away along the coast, while Positano is around 45 minutes away by car. THE ACCOMMODATION: The view from afar Villa Poseidon is a jewel in the landscape overlooking the Gulf of Salerno. Half lighthouse, half white pearl protruding from the pale blues of the Amalfi Coast; the villa sits on the frontier that separates the sky from the sea. Despite its proximity to the historic centre of the city, it is surrounded by the natural colours of its grounds and seems a mirage of a distant island on which you long to be shipwrecked. THE ACCOMMODATION: The view from up close As you approach Villa Poseidon, it transforms into a treasure trove of rare artefacts, displayed in the open spaces and intense colours of the interior. The whole complex is framed by the pallet of Mediterranean colours of the surrounding park and pervaded by the perfumes from the citrus groves. The panoramic terrace accommodates a large swimming pool and offers bathers a spectacular view that rolls away towards the horizon. EVENTS: Nearby Just a short walk from the centre of Salerno, at the Villa Poseidon, even the simplest vacation becomes an unforgettable experience, where time seems to stand still to allow for walks in the floral park and dips in the terrace swimming pool or trips to some of the most famous resorts on the Amalfi and Cilento Coasts. Turn back the hands of time a few centuries by visiting some of the most impressive vestiges of the Ancient Roman Empire in Pompei, Varano and Herculaneum, and experience a time that was lost and then rediscovered at the thermal springs in Castelammare di Stabia and Paestum. Naturally, that's not all. The owner of the villa and her two children are always coming up with new ideas and initiatives to entertain their guests. There are gourmet cooking courses (taught by exceptional chefs), embroidery classes, and this year they are offering special 'theatre packages' for a weekend of cultured evenings. Choose from breath-taking prose at the Teatro Verdi in Salerno or take in the season of operas and classical concerts. In fact, an artistic director worthy of the greatest theatres in the world, Mestro Daniel Oren, has been a guest at the villa on several occasions. EVENTS: Local fabric Whereas the region is home to many architectural, natural and artistic masterpieces, there are also a whole host of lesser-known destinations which are just as breath-taking and easy to reach. The area is rich in traditional crafts and small independent producers who represent the tradition, knowledge and culture of the region. These craftsmen elevate the manufacture of their goods to an art. There are the historic shirt makers of Naples, the embroiderers of Sorrento, ceramics of Vetri, the linen of Positano and corals of Torre del Greco. These artisans who have learned to live in harmony with the beauty of the territory, are just some of the treasures to be discovered in the region. The enthusiasm with which the villa owner describes these artisans is contagious. This excellence, she says, must be protected, rediscovered and promoted. How can you argue with that? EVENTS: At the Villa The Villa Poseidon never fails to lend an unforgettable quality to each event it hosts. A magical aura surrounds the brides and grooms who come here to tie the knot. Whether they come here to celebrate with a reception worthy of the Arabian nights, or to take their vows (secular or religious), they find themselves immersed in fairy-tale surroundings they will never forget. The impeccable organisation will also take care of working lunches and dinners, receptions, banquets, and other events. With invisible efficiency and sobriety, the staff guarantee the perfect outcome for any event. For information and bookings:

We arrived prior to check in and so our room was not ready, however we were able to use the pool and adjoining areas while we waited. Just disappointing they didn’t tell us when our room was ready and the bar ran out of white wine. On a positive note it is a big deep pool with

You would have to contact the hotel directly about a shuttle from the train station. We had a car, so didn’t ask. I would guess you would have to take a taxi every time you wanted to go somewhere. They did mention a steep walking patch to downtown. As for ferries to towns along the Amalfi Coast - they leave from the marina ultiple times a day. Just watch for the time of last ferry of the day if you want to get back.

Customer, from Capodichino Airport you can cacth a taxi or Alibus ( bus to and from Capodichino about 4 euro per person) to reach Napoli Central Station, then you take a train to Salerno ( visit trenitalia website ) and then take a taxi from Salerno train station to Villa Poseidon. As an alternative you can walk until Via Roma and then take the escalator in Via Monti( 30mts walk). As concerns the costs of trains you can check on trenitalia website; as concerns taxi it depends on the traffic. ther's no chain lock on the door from inside, once you lock the dood from the inside no one can open it. We guarantee 24 hours surveillance.

Concordo la tua tesi .. se leggi la risposta alla mia recensione , sono state scritte eresie . Pagato in anticipo 1650 sul totale di 2132 e hanno scritto che il mio intento era il 50 per cento di sconto e poi che quando passavo dalla reception il mio nn corretto lessico ha causato il problema della camera ... pure invenzione visto che il mio corretto lessico era un buongiorno e in buonasera . Tutte cose inventate che poi pubblicherò ancora

"If you don’t smoke ask for a room not next to smokers as you’ll breathe theirs anyway."
"G If possible get a room facing the sea, otherwise it could be noisy."
"Room clean and tidy with space for suitcase and storage for clothes. Breakfast self serve restaurant not open for dinner. There is a shortcut from the hotel into Salerno. Climbing steps many of them not so good after a few glasses of wine although there is also escalators to assist👍 "
"Shower overflows if you take a long shower or two take shower back to back. The view is beautiful if you have sea view. "
"Windows need to be closed due to traffic but the air con is fully functional and quiet"
US$136 - US$756 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
