The hotel is the most ancient hotel in the Sorrento Peninsula. This wonderful garden, extended to the sea, became in 1637 the residence of the Jesuits, then since 1777 an inn, and finally an hotel. The ancient cloister with the church, the elegant rooms, the quiet garden, the spectacular terrace, the fascinating caves overlooking the sea, have hosted in more than two hundred years the most famous travellers of the Grand Tour ? such as Goethe, Mary Shelley, Hans Christian Andersen and Sigmund Freud ? and it still preserve the treasures and the precious footprints of history and art of all times. The atmosphere of the ancient Jesuit residence, its discreet and quiet interior, mingle with the Mediterranean style and the standards of contemporary hospitality, ensuring you a stay unique in its kind.
