When we stayed in Paestum in the summer of 2007, we really felt like we were on a private island. Compared to the typical throngs of vacationers we usually face in summer months, this June trip was a treat, starting with our stay at Savoy Beach Hotel.
We spent the days swimming in the hotel pool which we had to ourselves,
lazily strolling over to the sea to swim in the Mediterranean and have a fabulous seafood lunches at beachfront restaurants,
driving to charming, local mountain towns like Eredita (in our tiny FIAT rental car) to enjoy spectacular sunset views at delicious, yet amazingly affordable restaurants
and finishing with evenings driving around the region checking out the picturesque cliffs of neighboring Agropoli and its port before heading back to our lovely hotel in Paestum for dinner al fresco at Tre Olivi.
