La Chiaja art&relais is located at the very beginning of Castellammare di Stabia‘s seafront, in a strategic but quiet position. The town is located in the Gulf of Naples, just 4 km away from Pompeii, along the access road to the Sorrento peninsula. Naples is 25 km away, Sorrento 18 km, Amalfi 30 km, Positano 25 km. Home of prestigious villas dating back to ancient times, it also boasts an important Bourbon royal palace and a tradition of thermal waters with healing properties. On the seafront there are seafood restaurants, bars, ice-cream shops and on the stretch of coast towards Vico Equense there are numerous well-equipped beaches. During summer, the tourist port of Marina di Stabia, 1 km from the structure, provides transport services by sea to the resorts of the Amalfi and Sorrento coasts. The circumvesuviana, 15 minutes walk, allows you to reach Pompeii, Herculaneum, Naples and Sorrento.
La Chiaja art&relais, in Castellammare di Stabia, was named after the stretch of coast on which it faces. During the Spanish domination of the Bourbons it was called “la plaja”, which was turned by the Neapolitans into chiaja, which means beach. The building preserves the remains of the ancient fishing village and is located near a wool factory, established in 1918 – it was the first in Southern Italy -, belonging to the owners of the structure who now continue the production of mattresses. The old house and its splendid terrace have been lovingly restored, enhancing the ancient materials and highlighting arches, niches, high ceilings, ancient fountains: history, art, landscape and well-being merge to surprise the guest. All rooms – double superior, double deluxe, triple Suite and Junior Suite – overlook the sea, are spacious, bright and tastefully decorated in a Mediterranean style that blends old and new, old and modern, luxury and simplicity. The colors are those of the sea and the Vesuvian land. Each room is personalized, equipped with all modern comforts, furnished with mattresses produced by the family business using exclusively natural fibers.
The terrace of La Chiaja art&relais, in Castellammare di Stabia, offers an extraordinary view of the Gulf of Naples and Vesuvius. An ideal place for breakfast, based on fresh and local products – homemade cakes and bread, eggs, cheese, juices and seasonal fruit – it also offers a mini Jacuzzi facing the sea that will help you relaxing. During the day, the bar will cool you down with drinks and at sunset and delicious aperitifs. The property provides booking service for restaurants, taxis, boat rentals, scooters and bicycles. At 100 m from the entrance of the relais there is a newly designed wellness centre equipped with fitness room and indoor swimming pool. At the relais, Art becomes an integral part of the hospitality project: the corridor, transformed into a gallery, houses the works of the local artist Luca de Martino made with “black sand of Vesuvius”, stones and glass polished by the sea collected on the nearby beach to tell the story of this land.
