We have to thank the Scariati family for the wonderful Borgo de la Pietraia.
Set in pristine wilderness on top of a hill, it encompasses a whole panoply of colours: from the vibrant greens and reds of the stine and brickwork of the house itself to the more gentle reds and blues of the sea and sunset.
It is a little corner of paradise, really, comfortably situated between the mountains and the ocean - and perfectly integrated in such a scenario.
Borgo de la Pietraia also reflects the history and ancient stone of the area but it also uses sophisticated materials and those bold vibrant colours we’ve already mentioned.
All in all, there are 12 rooms at the disposal of guests, including one suite, and all are equipped with every modern comfort and exclusive design items. We're suckers for when history and design meet together in good taste and this is the case here.
Every single room has captivating views of the majestic valley of the Temples of Paestum and on clear days you can even see the elegant silhouette of Capri.
Gastronomy wise, do try the Locanda del Borgo. Open every night, it offers a variety of seafood and typical meat dishes of the region. Like the Borgo de la Pietraia itself it is characterised by quality and creativity.

I stayed with my husband at Borgo La Pietra for a late Summer escape, and it was everything we could have hoped for and more. The location and building are so beautiful - a modern but homely country house nestled in the hillside, with unspoilt views out to sea. The sunsets were breathtaking!
Our room was spacious and tastefully decorated, with a private patio. The whole atmosphere was peaceful and although there were other guests staying, we often felt as though we had the place to ourselves. The family run ambience meant that nothing was too much trouble and the owners were delightful, offering advice about how we could spend our days, providing a packed breakfast for our last day, and always being friendly & on-hand.
The buffet breakfasts were substantial and leisurely, equally the restaurant on site was very special and we had some our most delicious meals here.
Getting away from the hotel itself we explored Paestum and the temple remains, the beautiful sandy beach, walking in the hills and discovering the many coastal towns and villages, which offer incredible home cooked meals. The local seafood and buffalo mozzarella are a must!!

This farmhouse in the hills. Eat Cappaccio was idyllic. The welcome, hospitality, views, food were incomparablye. I am already planning a return trip for more than one night. The chef bowled me over - I had no idea that the cuisine was as 5 star as the accomadations. Far and away th best meal I had on this trip. Bravo!
Lovely centre for the Cilento region

The location opens a beautiful view across the bay to the Amalfi coast. Stars are great at night!
The staff help you familiarise the area, providing immediate information/suggestions and v friendly.
Dropping one star only because we decided to use the swimming pool and relax throughout the day, but had no lunch option and had to drive to find somewhere.
The rooms and cleanliness were impeccable.
