Palazzo Belmonte is a historical residence dating back to the 17th century. The building was constructed according to the wishes of the Prince of Belmonte and Marquis of Castellabate, who chose the bay of Santa Maria di Castellabate as the site for his magnificent hunting lodge. In fact, to the rear of the Palazzo, lies an immense park, covering some five hectares of land, land which once served as the royal game reserve.

For over four centuries the residence has belonged to the Granito Pignatelli family. Today's Prince of Belmonte, who resides in a private wing of the Palazzo, has recently opened the doors of his sumptuous home to those visitors who wish experience the luxury of yesteryear, whilst enjoying the stunningly beautiful natural environment of the Cilento. Palazzo Belmonte is located within the National Park of Cilento and just steps away from the crystal clear waters of a sea consistently awarded the European Blue Flag.

The guest bedrooms and suites are still pervaded by the atmosphere of a building once frequented by illustrious members of the European aristocracy; by those Kings of Italy and Spain who came to participate in the Prince of Belmonte's legendary quail hunts. Rare artworks and precious antiques decorate rooms characterised by high, vaulted ceilings and terraces overlooking the sea, the garden, and the flower-filled inner courtyard.

Guest bedrooms are located both in the Palazzo Principale and the Palazzina Edoardo, this latter a fine example of 17th century architecture in which a particularly luxurious apartment has been created. A delightful dependance is located in the park; a wonderfully romantic retreat amidst the green of Palazzo Belmonte's lush Mediterranean gardens.

The hotel's attractive swimming pool is located in a secluded part of the garden where guests are guaranteed the maximum tranquillity. The sea and resort's private beach are just a short walk away, accessed via pleasant pathways through the pine and hibiscus trees.

At Palazzo Belmonte's restaurant, guests are presented with dishes inspired by the great culinary tradition of the Cilento and prepared with only the finest, locally-sourced, ingredients. During the day, the chef's delectable regional specialities can be savoured whilst relaxing by the poolside. In the evenings, the restaurant's sea view terrace provides an idyllic venue for a romantic candlelit dinner.

Whilst sojourning at Palazzo Belmonte, guests have the opportunity to visit the National Park of Cilento and, on request, participate in a nocturnal fishing trip or a gourmet pic-nic on the islet of Licosa. A part of Palazzo Belmonte has been reserved for meetings and small social events.
