“Loved this place”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Stayed here mid-October 2012 primarily based on reviews saying it was close to the temples and Luigi, the owner and his staff, were wonderful. Boy were they correct! Luigi is wonderful. He was friendly, respectful, kind and took time to help us plan the rest of our trip. His remaining staff, including his daughter, were also helpful and kind. Even their dog was friendly and attentive! The room was comfortable and clean. The grounds are beautiful. The breakfast and dinner had great delicious choices. We ordered a bottle of wine before dinner and were brought a complimentary delicious nosh. The walk to the Temples was short and scenic. I was very, very impressed with Hotel Villa Rita and would love to stay here again.

My friend and I stayed two nights at Villa Rita in October to see the ruins, which are walking distance from the hotel. The hotel and large grounds were very lovely and relaxing. We enjoyed a wonderful bottle of wine with complimentary appetizers in the lobby. The breakfast was good and Luigi, the owner, and his daughter were wonderful. Luigi was very helpful and informative about a variety of travel questions we had. He and his daughter are so friendly. We had dinner both nights at the hotel. The food was wonderful and reasonably priced. We would definitely come back and highly recommend Villa Rita to anyone visiting Paestum.

Hotels don't come more relaxing than this one. A lovely building, beautiful grounds and very friendly owners. The sea is less than a kilometre away and the ruins of the ancient city of Paestum literally just over the road. [Ask Rita to tell you a bit about it before you visit.] Luigi will lend you a bicycle to get to the beach or explore the local hills.

This was my third visit. A great place to unwind!

They offered to pick me up from the train station and accommodated me at the end of the season...if going to stay in Paestum.- stay here!! They speak good English and work very hard to make things comfortable for their guests even those with special food needs. Just remember to buy your train tickets before you get to Paestum.

3 friends and I stayed here in October 2012. The hotel is well-located and beautifully maintained. The lobby is like a beautiful living room. We had dinner here and were very happy with the service and food. Luigi is very helpful with rides to the train station. Would highly recommend!

Stayed there a week, weather was fantastic but the hospitality the best we have had in travelling in many years. Luigi was the best host I can imagine. His detail for customer comfort was outstanding. Food was very good an reasonable priced, The breakfast in particular was amazing, great buffet and proper coffee made to order! was in heaven.

We used Paestum as accomodation was cheeper than Naples, it had good transport networks with the train, Luigi will take you to the station and collect you on return at no cost. He even greeted us on our first day with Peroni beers at no cost.

The rooms were adequate, clean and all the staff were fantastic. This was a memorablle holiday particulary the heavy thunderstorms on our last night. This is one of the best hotels have stayed in with good rail and road links north and south. Ideally would still have a car as does allow you freedom but you can do this hotel on foot as the station is ten minutes away and can go to Pompei, Herculaneum, Naples and Rome etc.

The only aspect that you should prepare for is that the hotel is in the country and is rural, therefore a good midge repellant is required.

Room Tip: if want to use pool ask for rooms outside and not in main hotel

We spent 3 nights in early October in this wonderful family-run hotel within walking distance of the amazing Greek temples. Our room had a great view toward the mountains (hot air balloon festival added a nice touch!), was simple and clean, with balcony, good storage, comfortable bed and spacious bathroom and shower. Breakfast was a great buffet (still dreaming about the croissants!) and dinner was some of the best food we had in our 17 days in Italy. Luigi was a terrific host, and his daughter Arrita, charming and helpful, as were all the staff. Luigi picked us up at the train station, and took us back when it was time to go. He lent us bikes to get to the beach on our second day.

We had quick lunches two days in a row at his sister's beautiful restaurant, Ristorante Nettuno, which is just at around the corner from the hotel. We ordered from the bar menu and sat in their garden overlooking the temples, but the dining room looked fabulous and would be worth exploring on another trip.

Paestum is definitely worth a trip and Hotel Villa Rita is the place to stay. We spent three nights - but might have been wise to just stay for two, as we had seen all we wanted to see by the end of the second day.

Room Tip: We liked the upper floor, looking across the garden toward the pool.
