Nestled in the hill's surrounded by olive groves and donkeys for neighbours is a charming historic castello (fortified small castle). Only a few miles west of Paestum and the Roman temples in the small rural village of Cappacio. From the start, we had a warm welcome, the owner can't speak much English but with the help of google translate we...

I stayed at the Castello dei Principi for two nights. The hotel is located on the hill above the Paestum, and one can gain a wonderful view of the sunset from the balcony outside the upper rooms. The room was very comfortable and clean (I had one of the upper rooms, No. 10). The first night I also ate at...

Having read the very favourable reviews, three of us booked in for two nights. We did not want to stay in a resort type hotel on the coast. On arrival the rooms we had booked did not seem available but there were clearly no other guests. We were shown a sort of apartment with three separate bedrooms and two bathrooms....

We stayed here for one night in early December. I think we were the only guests that night but our host was very friendly and accomodating. The hotel is in an old 15th century palace, quite rustic but has lots of charm. The ammenities are not the most modern but the room was quite comfortable and very clean. We had...

This was a 4 night stay and up in on a mountainside but 4 kms from the sea at Paestum. The staff were so gracious and accommodating at all times and couldn't do enough for us. The place comes with its own chapel in the garden, a unique and charming adjunct to the premises and our stay was quite unforgettable....

If you want a quiet, scenic escape from the hustle and bustle, then castello dei principi could well be the place for you. We had a lovely time here after we travelled from Rome. The place is a renovated ex palace, and the owners have paid a lot of attention to detail. It has a lot of charm and character....

Paestum site is mindblowing and Hotel Castello dei Principi is a perfect base to visit. With the typical countryside of Campania as a backdrop and in the middle of olive tree fields, you will find this hotel full of charm with lovely owners. We arrived late in the night and had a lot of trouble finding the property, but the...

I have been very well received in this hotel, located in a small town located close to Paestum. The superior room is nice, outdoor common parts offer many opportunities to rest and enjoy the view. Good breakfast is included and you can benefit from the restaurant/bar on the same site. Very good offer for the price.

The owner and staff at Castello dei Principi couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful and my son and I really enjoyed our stay. This is a charming hotel in a charming and tranquil setting with a super restaurant (the tiramisu was delicious) and a terrace overlooking the sea. What lovely people.
