Our family hospitality in the countryside
In the heart of Cilento, exactly halfway between the Amalfi and Cilento coasts, Residenza Giancesare is the ideal place to spend your holidays. Its strategic position reconciles the need to regenerate in nature with the need to discover the territory rich in natural and archaeological beauty.
It is located on the hillside of Capaccio Paestum, with a view of the archaeological park of Paestum – a Unesco site – 7 kilometers from the sea and 3 kilometers from the majestic Greek temples, and is composed of different types of accommodation, immersed in the green of spontaneous Mediterranean scrub and flowering gardens. The large lawn used as a playground, a grass football pitch and well-kept swimming pools make the place a welcoming oasis for anyone who likes to stay in quiet, exclusive places.
The Residence stands out for its family-like welcome, in which the guest remains the centre of attention of the hosts. Born as a small farm for personal needs and as a summer residence of the Sacco family, it started its receptive activity more than forty years ago just as it was done in the past, sharing experiences and unforgettable moments with the guests. Over the years, the place has become the ideal place for exchanges between cultures and moments of conviviality, leading many Italian and foreign guests to return many times.

In order to offer a healthy and environmentally sustainable experience, the farm, which produces extra virgin olive oil, has embarked on the path of organic farming, using natural fertilisers and agro-ecological practices, both for the olive trees and for the other crops in the production chain. For nature lovers, we offer the opportunity to stroll among the centuries-old trees and olive groves, watch the olive harvest and milling, and taste our extra virgin olive oil and typical products of the Mediterranean diet in a tour with tasting. An emotional journey that will evoke unforgettable organoleptic sensations, in full respect of the environment.

A privileged destination is the archaeological area of Poseidonia – Paestum, just a few kilometers from our hotel. Here you will have the opportunity to wander among the columns of the majestic temples, admire the most ancient architecture of Greek art up close and appreciate its harmonies.
As well as being a delight for the palate, visiting the stables, learning about the breeding process, admiring the art of the master cheese-makers and, of course, tasting the finished product, can become one of the most evocative and unique experiences the area has to offer.
With its long beaches of soft, pale sand, particularly popular with families with children and the elderly, and a seabed that descends very slowly, Capaccio Paestum is one of the most popular seaside resorts in Italy, awarded with the Blue Flag.
An excellence among the beaches of the municipality of Capaccio Paestum is represented by the Oasi Dunale of Legambiente Freewheeling Paestum, which is located near the archaeological area. The pine forest offers shade and refreshment to families on summer picnics; the beach is hidden by the dune that is filled with white sea lilies in summer.
If you are a nature lover, the Cilento is the ideal place for such an experience. Unspoilt and little frequented by mass tourism, with a beautiful coastline, it is much appreciated by those who practice slow tourism. With an expert GAE guide who will accompany you on very evocative excursions, you can safely discover unique places on panoramic paths surrounded by greenery.
