The story of il Cannito began 25 years ago thanks to the foresight of the head of the Gorga family, Luigi, who fell in love with the Capaccio area and who transmitted to his family his desire to create an exclusive residential complex, fully respecting the natural environment, in a charming territory full of history and ancient traditions.
Today, the Gorga family offers its guests a warm and friendly hospitality, typical of a privileged maison d’hotes.
With an exclusive value for your money, il Cannito is stunning beautiful with 4 minimalist rooms that tick all of the boxes for an eco-friendly, luxurious stay. The hotel is in a relatively undiscovered part of Italy, with relaxing surroundings and a stunning swimming pool to skinny dip in the warmer months. If your preference is to stay in the whole day, there are numerous activities such as cooking courses, wine tasting, gourmet events, house art events, conferences, photo shooting sessions and more.
Despite the boutique guesthouse's location, there is a great diversity of options to travel to nearby towns, beaches, mountains and restaurants. There is also the archaeology temples of Paestum within a short distance length and a private beach (ask about this one). This boutique space gravitates towards the slow travel lifestyle, fans of agrotourism and nature ventures will be happy to indulge in what this place has to offer.
Il Cannito is located just a few kilometres from Paestum and the Cilento seaside. The complex is composed of two ancient-stone buildings that have been restored to their original splendour in strict compliance with the regulations protecting the natural beauty spots of southern Italy.
