  • About this holiday

    The four star Palazzo Belmonte in Santa Maria di Castellabate on the Amalfi Coast offers atmospheric and characterful accommodation in a stunning setting overlooking the Mediterranean. Still the residence of Prince Belmonte, the most part of the building has been converted into spacious suites with balconies, terraces, and large windows that open on to the vast tranquil blue sea. A truly Mediterranean feel is captured in the floral inner courtyard, the private pool, and terrace. Click to read more about the hotel here.

    "Holiday accommodation was just what we were looking for - thank you for recommending this to us." - Ms B, August 2016

    Our opinion

    Palazzo Belmonte is a stunning 17th Century palazzo in an idyllic setting by the sea. 

    Hotel description

    Palazzo Belmonte is a special and unique property, set in five acres of lush gardens and facing the sea at Santa Maria di Castellabate. As soon as one steps through the huge gates leading into the grounds and walks through the gardens, perfumed with the scent of jasmine and honeysuckle, time seems to stand still. Prince Belmonte occupies a private wing of the property, but the rest has been exquisitely converted to spacious suites without alteration to the original structure. Each suite at the Palazzo Belmonte is individual in shape and style; some have vaulted ceilings and some have terraces overlooking the sea, the gardens or the flower-filled inner courtyard, and in each case the thickness of the ancient walls negates the need for air-conditioning. Rooms are situated in the three wings of the main building, in an adjacent sixteenth century house called Edoardo's house, where there are suites, some of which have views along the coast and also in the Villa Belmonte, a villa of 26 rooms, all decorated in white which exudes a contemporary Mediterranean feel. Many of the rooms are ideal for families with living areas or adjoining rooms for children. The sandy beach, where the Palazzo Belmonte provides its own deckchairs and umbrellas, is accessed just through the grounds. The use of the chairs is free on a first-come, first-served basis. Alternatively, the large swimming pool, surrounded by spacious terraces and equipped with pool-side bar, changing rooms and showers, is situated just above the beach. Just across the bay from the Palazzo Belmonte is the Punta Licosa, private land owned by the Prince and ideal for walking and cycling and from where you can take a boat to a small island with a light house. This area is ideal for a beach holiday in a region that is less touristy than the Amalfi Coast and with better beaches.
