La Darsena is a small hotel in Agropoli, Italy. It is categorized as a 3 star hotel because it doesn't have all the amenities as some of the bigger hotels. There is no pool, coffee maker/tea in the room and the gym is quite small with only a few equipment but the hotel is on the beach with an amazing view from most rooms.
At La Darsena, they try to maintain a homely atmosphere with their home cooked meals and home-style serving of meals at the table. There is a set time for meals, B (7:30-8:30) L (13:00 - 14:00) and D (20:00 - 21:00). Both lunch and dinner include a bottle of wine (white or red) and a bottle of water. Newcomers are assigned a table towards the back and could graduate to a table with a better view of the ocean as tables become available.
Some of the staff do speak English and they were all friendly and aimed to please. Dietary needs are attended to and if you plan a tour and would miss lunch, you can request a take away lunch that is prepared and left at your table before you leave for the day.
While we were in Agropoli we visited, Salerno, Amalfi, Positano and Ravello on our first day, taking the local train to Salerno and then a ferry over to Positano. We then took the Sita bus for the Amalfi coast ride back to Salerno. The view was just beautiful.
Santa Maria S Mare is a quaint little town just south of Agropoli. It is a 20 minute bus ride away and is worth the trip.
Paestum is a 6 minute train ride from Agropoli. This city remained undiscovered until the 18th century thanks to the poets, artists and writers from around the world. I would strongly recommend visiting this archeological site.
There is so much to see in and around Agropoli that one week didn't seem long enough for us. We visited Capri, Pompeii, Naples and went into the old part of Agropoli.
I would recommend a trip to Agropoli and suggest La Darsena for the real Italian experience.
