Campania Italy

Campania is one of Italy's most beautiful regions. Both mountainous and green, the area's history of volcanic activity has played a large part in shaping the environment. The climate is warm, and one of the most familiar images is of oranges and lemons growing in green groves above the deep blue sea.

Campania is also rich in culture and is very well-known for its regional cuisine, music and architecture. The charm of Campania is that whilst staying here you can combine superb cuisine and stunning history with pure relaxation.

Small Luxury Hotels of the World has a number of beautiful properties that are located in some of the most idyllic areas of the region. Albergo San Montano is on the green island of Ischia, in the Bay of Naples. The hotel has two pools, broad sundecks, serpentine paths and landscaped gardens that follow the contours of the hill crowned by the hotel itself. Near to Sorrento town centre, on the Amalfi Coast, is Grand Hotel Cocumella. Set within a century-old park, this oasis of tranquillity has been the destination for many a distinguished traveller, including Goethe, Anderson, Freud, the Duke of Wellington and many more.

Further up the coast in the historic town of Naples (the capital of Campania) is Grand Hotel Parker's. This hotel, blessed with a truly romantic setting, was built in the late 19th century and offers the elegance of a bygone age. Magnificent lounges within the hotel are filled with antique furnishings, 18th century paintings and marble statues.

On the beautiful island of Capri are J.K. Place Capri and Villa Le Scale. J.K. Place Capri is ideally situated to take full advantage of the gentle sea breezes and the sounds of the ocean, thanks to its seaside location. Fine Italian and Mediterranean cuisine can be enjoyed in the restaurant or outside on the terrace overlooking Capri Harbour. Villa Le Scale is located just off the main square in Anacapri, the larger of the two towns on the island. This neo-classical mansion is set in beautifully scented gardens of magnolia and hibiscus, which create a private oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds.
