We were welcomed by Adriana on the front desk like old friends and this set the tone for our whole stay. The bar staff who assisted with our evening sunset cocktails, the ladies who cleaned our room, the porters, the waiters and chefs were all a delight to meet and so helpful. The location is secluded and so a great place to get away to. There is a train station within 500 metres so when we fancied a bit of hubbub we took the train to nearby Sorrento to have lunch in Fauno on the square.
The tiny harbour of Seano felt like we'd gone back to the fifties (no I don't remember it but it's what I'd imagine it to be) what with all the families on the beaches and off on the many little boats. We sat and whiled away a happy afternoon watching the boats coming and going and the young men jumping and swimming from the jettys.
The evening dining experience was truly out of this world; this was a double five star restaurant in my humble opinion. We've tried taster menus recently but for taste and presentation this beat the spots off the others. Being in Italy we tried out the local wines which were outstanding and we will be seeking them out back home.
When we were leaving there was a wedding party about to arrive and the dining setting for it was breathtaking; beautiful tables, flowers and the bay of Naples, how could you not fall in love with it?
We fell in love all over again during our magical stay........ we hope you do too.
