Golden age glamour at this graceful residence in Maratea, the ‘Pearl of the Tyrrhenian’
Standing over the Tyrrhenian Coast, the views from Santavenere are sensational – whether you take them in from inside the regal salon or with an alfresco lunch. Its glamorous reputation lies in the fifties, when it was a celebrity favourite. Today Santavenere is both classical and contemporary, refined and welcoming.
Interiors are peppered with carefully chosen antiques and paintings, and it’s easy to picture Italian nobility through to Hollywood stars kicking back here. Pack over-sized sunglasses in summer – for stretching out beside the olive and lemon tree lined pool in sartorial style. A bar both here and at the beach will keep you refreshed. Spend relaxed afternoons in the hotel's exclusive-use spa inspired by Roman grottoes. For dinner, you’ll have even more restaurant choices – from net-fresh fish to modern makeovers of regional fare.Read more[SPLIT]Read less
This part of Italy is made for exploring. It’s simply a case of deciding how – by land, sea or air. You can rent everything from helicopters and Lamborghinis to a simple scooter, and Santavenere has its own helipad and dock. It’s just a few minutes walk to the private pebble beach, where loungers, towels and parasols wait, but the hotel will happily take you by golf cart. Further afield, Santavenere can arrange cruises and tours of Grotta delle Meraviglie, Certosa di Padula, the Rocks of Matera, and Cilento and Pollino National Parks.
Enjoy your stay!
