    The simple life at Palazzo Belmonte

    The magic of Palazzo Belmonte is effusive. A former 17th century palazzo in which charm and character are buzz words, its rustic architecture sits amiably within the rugged, coastal landscape of Santa Maria di Castellabate in Salerno. Within five acres of walled grounds, guests are treated to true Mediterranean leisure.
    Travel south of the Amalfi Coast and discover Palazzo Belmonte just outside the mediaeval hamlet of Castellabate. Residing behind high stone walls, this 17th century palazzo sits effortlessly in a rugged and beautiful landscape to provide an immersive experience of the Mediterranean. Retreat from the everyday through an arched gate – an entryway to another era – wherein 5 acres of gardens are home to the aristocratic Prince Belmonte. This historical residence is a remarkable gem that radiates an enigmatic magnetism and exudes rustic authenticity. Glimpse the Mediterranean Sea through a lush overgrowth of trees, or delve into the grounds in search of the ‘secret gate’, the entryway to a private stretch of golden sand. A simple 24-metre swimming pool can be found nearby, surrounded by pungent bougainvillea. In amongst all of this, the palazzo’s architecture feels like an organic feature of the natural landscape; a masterpiece of terracotta roofing tiles, humble windows and stone walls creeping with foliage, the main building arches around a charming courtyard fragrant with flowers.

    Prince Belmonte remains resident in a private wing of the property, but the rest has been exquisitely converted to spacious rooms and suites without alteration to the original structure. Rooms are situated in the three wings of the main building and feature wrought iron bedsteads, tiled floors and antique furniture. Decorated in pristine whites, the rooms are light and airy with vast windows that let in sea breezes and the sound of rustling trees. In the adjacent Casa di Edoardo is the property’s most luxurious and exclusive accommodation, and each suite is distinctive in shape and style. Some have vaulted ceilings and some benefit from terraces with views of the sea, the gardens or the inner courtyard. There are also two modern villas elsewhere within the estate, which provide extra privacy and more informal living spaces. Having been commissioned by the Prince himself, the villas are thoughtfully named after his daughters – Francesca and Maria-Sofia.

    Hearty Italian dining at Palazzo Belmonte
    Dining, of course, is central to the experience in any Mediterranean destination and the Palazzo Belmonte is no exception. Accompanied by gentle music and the wash of the lulling tide, al fresco meals are served on a rustic terrace with sea views that expand as far as the eye can see. The Belvedere is within the estate’s gardens, where you can enjoy intimate candlelit meals as the light descends over this magnificent setting. Mediterranean and local specialities aid your immersion into the lifestyle of the region and dishes exploit Santa Maria di Catellabate’s prevalence of fish and seafood fresh from the Gulf of Salerno. Homemade ingredients are used where possible, for example fusilli pasta and extra virgin olive oil are both made on the Belmonte estate. The feasts served here are made to exacting standards to ensure guests surrender themselves to the indulgent pleasures of this extraordinary location.

    Prices from £1,019 per person based on two people sharing a double room for 7 nights, including scheduled flights with British Airways from London to Naples, hire car and bed and buffet breakfast.
