We stayed at 1861 for 5 nights during a 2 week trip to Italy and it was definitely one of the highlights of our holiday. The town in lovely with a nice beach, there is not much to do and we did not have a car but we were there to relax and the hotel is the perfect place to do this. It is not your average hotel, and for those looking for lots of facilities and a 24 hr reception this is not for you, but with only 6 rooms and the Hotel owner Carlo always around should you have any questions, it felt almost like staying with friends than in a hotel. We had a superior room which was beautiful and so large you did not feel cooped up should the afternoon turn rainy or you wanted to laze inside for the morning. The view was definitely the highlight and on the odd weekend night when the road outside (not a through road so no cars) was busy with holidaying Italians this just added to the atmosphere.
We climbed up the hill to Castellabate for lunch one day and the little town is worth a look as well as being packed with Restaurants. We also sampled both of the Lido restaurants for lunch and both were very good. We did find that of a week night some restaurants were shut as we were there out of peak season but there was also the simple but good pizzeria on the corner that we could rely upon.
Definitely the best hotel we stayed in during our trip - you will not be disappointed!
