“A Quiet Gem”
Reviewed 2 October 2006

We loved our two night stay at Villa Sirio, a friendly, family run small, serene inn located in a picturesquel fishing village, Santa Maria di Castellabate, south of the Amalfi Coast. (To say it's in Salerno is really inaccurate as it is a number of miles south and far more tranquil than Salerno.) The owners recently renovated a historic villa and did so with impeccable taste. Truly a lovely property.
Perhaps because we were actually there on our 25th anniversary, we were given the prime room -- the corner room on the top floor, with a balcony overlooking the sea and another window looking out at the picturesque fishing area and beach. The room was exceptionally clean and the bed very comfortable. It was wonderful to sit on the balcony and just take in the lovely views. There's also a small area right on the water where the hotel maintains chairs and umbrellas; they also have chairs at the sandy beach a short, two minute walk away from the hotel. The water is crystal clear.
We had a delicious anniversary dinner at the hotel. As a surprise the restaurant manager, Andrea, who is the son of the owners, had his chef make us a decadent chocolate truffle cake. And did I mention, that dinner is served right by the sea by candlelight? Quite a romantic, memorable evening!
The owners couldn't have been nicer nor made us feel more welcome. They were also generous with the use of the hotel's computer for internet access.
If you do venture to Villa Sirio, which is somewhat off the beaten path (in our view, that's a plus), be sure to take in Paestum, which is the site of magnificent Greek temples and other ruins dating from the 3rd century BC. It's not overrun with visitors, but is a first rate archeological site well worth seeing. There's also a fabulous restaurant right by the site where we enjoyed a peaceful and delicious lunch.

  • Liked — lovely views and tranquil setting
  • Tips/Secrets — stop at Paestum on the way there; ask for specific directions as it isn't easy to find
