Sant'Agata sui Due Golfi
Grand Hotel Due Golfi is located in the small village of Sant'Agata near Massa Lubrense. The village is named "sui Due Golfi" because it sits on a clifftop with views over both the Bay of Salerno and the Bay of Naples. This uniquely stunning view can be seen from the road which leads to the hotel and from "Deserto", a scenic overlook just steps from the center of the village which is home to a community of cloistered nuns.
The village centers around a church dating from 1600 and is known for its peace and quiet, surrounding beauty, temperate climate, and excellent restaurants, some of which are considered among the best in Italy.
