Hotel La Certosa (3 stars) prices and availability
A bed on the beach (well, almost!)
- Just three steps and you're on the beach of Marina del Cantone
- A delicious fish supper at the "Pappone"' restaurant
- The spectacular views of the sea surrounding Nerano
Experience the unique charm of staying in a historic charterhouse right on the beach of the Cantone Bay in Nerano, the picturesque fishingmen's quarter of Massa Lubrense on Italy's Sorrento Peninsula. Here you'll discover that the tradition of warm Italian hospitality is alive and well at Hotel La Certosa, a romantic and intimate three star accommodation in a 15th century former monastery.
Once a Convent, Today a Hotel
Privacy and peace are what you can expect at Hotel La Certosa, a convent dating from the 1400's which sits directly on the beach at Marina del Cantone. An ideal spot for couples on a romatic get-away to celebrate a special occasion or for families looking for a slow-paced, relaxing atmosphere. The building still preserves some of its original architecture, including the arches on the facade, the upper storey windows, the vaulted ceilings, and the majolica tiled floors.
Hotel La Certosa has 16 large and bright rooms, furnished in the classic Mediterranean style and including all the modern comforts. The ensuite bathrooms are decorated with the colorful local ceramic tiles typical of this area of the coast, and the informal vibe makes guests feel immediately at home. Each room is bathed in sunlight streaming through the large windows overlooking the water. Some rooms also have a small private terrace perfect for relaxing at the end of the day while watching the sun set over the sea.
The Perfect Location for a Seaside Vacation
One of the advantages of Hotel La Certosa is its strategic location. Just steps from the water, the pebble beach is a short flight of stairs down and guests can use the loungers and umbrellas reserved for La Certosa to bask in the sun and take a dip in the water.
A Restaurant Over the Water
The restaurant at Hotel La Certosa is a treat for the eyes and palate. Here you can gaze out over the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean from your table while you sample some of the most traditional dishes from southern Italy. Fresh fish and seafood, pastas, local fruit and vegetables, soft mozzarella...all the best local specialties served against an unforgettable backdrop.
The menu features dishes prepared with the catch of the day, and the bounty of the sea is the center of attention at both lunch and dinner. Make sure you try the "spaghetti alla Nerano" with zucchini, basil, and parmesan and caciocavallo cheese...a local specialty! The menu is paired with an ample wine list including labels from Capri, the Amalfi Coast, and the Sorrento Peninsular, including DOCG Fiano and Greco, DOC Falanghina, and DOC Aglianico.
The Terrace, Where It's Summer All Year ROund
One of the most beautiful corners of La Certosa is the stunning terrace overlooking the bay. Here, the balmy sea air gives the impression of an endless summer, and guests gather here each afternoon and evening for a drink, a quiet hour with a good book, a leisurely chat with friends, or a light snack from the bar. From here, the beach is just a few steps down...
