The building is wonderfully restored stone barn. Our room was like a room in your well-to-do grandmother's country house if your grandmother had really good taste in furniture. We also had a glassed-in porch all to ourselves. The restaurant was a pleasant room and the other public rooms were so inviting we wished we were planning to stay for a week instead of one day. The Paestum ruins are a 5 minute walk from the hotel, so the location could not be better. Since the hotel is on a side street, it is very quiet, which is no small thing because the road in front of the ruin was a pedestrianized circus on the Sunday when we arrived.
The people running Il Granaio could not be nicer or more obliging. We were the only guests that evening but they rustled up their excellent cook who provided us with a terrific three course dinner on short notice. Breakfast was much more ample than we could eat, served in a very beautiful glassed-in terrace.
