Hotel Description

The Hotel San Francesco al Monte is the outcome of a project to rehabilitate and convert the remaining wing of the ancient monastery of Santa Lucia al Monte directed by the architect Luciano Raffin. The monastery’s dates from the 16th and began with the first single cell that Friar Augustine Miglionico carved in the side of the hill of San Martino, in an isolated area known as the heap. Over time, the first cell became the Church of Saint Lucia Virgine e Martire. The rear of the monastery is protected by the Vineyard of San Martino, which was recently declared an artistic and historical patrimony by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities. 

The Hotel provides spectacular views of the of Gulf of Naples as well as glimpses and hidden details you’ll soon meet. Stroll among the vines and citrus plants or through the light play offered by the pergola, discover the ground-level swimming pool and the hot-water pool cut into the stone.

Also a superb service paired with a fabulous Mediterranean cuisine are the philosophy of the La Terrazza dei Barbanti restaurant, which provides a striking panorama of the Gulf of Naples. The menu offers a wide selection of Neapolitan dishes and flavors, tactfully reinterpreted with respect for tradition.
