When approaching La Medusa down an Italian B road you wonder 'what am I going to'. Do not worry, through the gated entrance the glorious haven is revealed. The lovely yellow and white building is amazing and as soon as you step inside you will see the floors that are beautifully tiled throughout the interior.
The hotel is set in immaculate gardens which may once have been an old orange grove.It is
furnished to a very high standard with spacious communal rooms for guests to use with comfy armchairs. The clean and spacious bedrooms overlook all parts of the garden and some have sea views and views of Mt Vesuvius.There is a lovely swimming pool and sun deck and lots of comfortable outside seating.There are plenty of umbrellas and orange trees for those who like shade.
The 2 dining rooms are well appointed and the food is served by very pleasant and professional staff. The 4th floor dining room has spectacular views over Naples and the bay. The terrace around this restaurant is a true sun trap with comfortable chairs.
Francesco manages a large and able staff very well and nothing is too much trouble whatever your demands may be.
The hotel is 10 minutes from the local train station at Castel a Mare which is served by the hotel courtesy shuttle. From the station you can catch the Napoli- Sorrento train that also serves the Herculaneum and Pompeii archeological sites. Both are within easy walking distance of the stations.
This is a lovely hotel and our 4 day stay was a very pleasant experience, we couldn't fault it at all.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Superior four-star Hotel is a romantic villa "fin de siecle" made up of 49 rooms, whose restoration is constantly in balance between the respect for the past and the influence of contemporary style.A unique and authentic place made of beautiful old trees and surrounded by green surfaces, that admires the spectacular Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius.On one hand, the common areas, characterized by an unmistakable style and a wonderful elegance, which completely respect the important classical style of the structure; on the other hand, the rooms, a continuous alternation of contemporary and classical Design.A Hotel, on its own, marked by a deeply individual style where the care for details, quality and hospitality represents the common denominator.The ceramics of Amalfi Coast hand-painted with an exclusive design, the antique furniture and tapestries characterize the lobby, the bar and the restaurant situated on the ground floor of the hotel; so quiet places, that make possible living in a private and protected dimension... Where each detail becomes a pleasure to be relished. The huge glass windows in Liberty Style divide the building from the secular park: an explosion of flowers and colours, a wide open-air sitting-room completely equipped with chaise-longue, easy-chairs and gazebos; an unforgettable atmosphere beyond every expectation.Around the park full of flowers, the outside Fitness Corner represents an opportunity to keep oneself fit in an uncontaminated and healthy environment; the wellness swimming-pool with geysers, the sun beds, the large solarium represent an occasion of certain and pleasant relax. From here just a step to get to the Pool Bar for an aperitif, and another for sipping a vintage wine at the outside restaurant Il Gazebo & Le Terrazze in the middle of the citrus grove.Here the Chef suggests a refined, precious Mediterranean and International cuisine, a perfect balance among tastes, smells and colours.Excellent services like a Mercedes shuttle bus to the city centre or the close beaches, the free parking, the opportunity to rent a yacht or book private excursions and much more... Will make your stay unforgettable. ... more less
