The Grand Hotel San Michele is a unique place with a charm that captivates at first sight. The building rises majestically above a high cliff top which drops down steeply melting into the stunning colours of the Tyrrhenian Sea.

From here, the view is just simply superb. Looking over the terraces on a clearer day you can see the Aeolian Islands or enjoy a beautiful sunset. The green landscape in which the building is immersed – a good 44 hectares – gives the hotel a quiet peaceful atmosphere where you can regain vital energy easily through contact with nature.

Beside the hotel can be found a small farm holding which supplies the hotel with fruit and vegetables on a daily basis, at under zero km. The Grand Hotel San Michele offers infinite opportunities for your leisure time: a 9-hole golf course (par-70, with practice area), a driving range and Club House, swimming pool, enchanting private beach with all facilities (private access by lift), large terraces for relaxing at any hour, a summer restaurant by the sea and an elegant dining room inside the hotel. During summer evenings, dinner is normally served on the terrace. The exceptionally cordial welcome experienced by guests is thanks to our professional, courteous and helpful Staff.

Fresh flower arrangements – arriving straight from our outdoor garden - enhance every corner of the hotel with their sparkling colours and perfumes of summer. In this still virgin landscape, your sense of smell - so tortured in urban environments - can finally be fully satisfied.

Comprised of 53 double-rooms and 6 single rooms equipped with every mod con, the Grand Hotel San Michele - in Cetraro, in the Province of Cosenza – is situated on a cliff top overhanging the Tyrrhenian Sea. Much appreciated by its clientele for the scrupulous attention to décor and helpful staff, the hotel is surrounded by 44 hectares of countryside, including a farm producing the fruit, vegetables and traditional local products served in the renowned restaurant.

The ideal destination for anyone wanting to enjoy a period of health-restoring relaxation - necessary after months of work - the Grand Hotel San Michele is also the much-appreciated destination for golf enthusiasts with a 9-hole par 70 golf course and Club House.

For work meetings and conferences, the Grand Hotel San Michele provides a large modern Conference Centre equipped with all the technological equipment needed for an event of success.

Independent accommodation...

For anyone desiring the genuine comforts of a real home, the Grand Hotel has created “The San Michele Apartments”. This residential complex has been created from two country houses completely renovated to provide 21 mini-apartments of varying sizes with telephone, bathroom, kitchenette, TV (on request) and bedrooms for different numbers of guests.

The apartments are located in a century-old oak woodland overlooking the golf course, farm and hotel and residence guests have full use also of the hotel facilities.

...within the grounds of the San Michele Grand Hotel

Are you looking for a peaceful location to spend your summer holidays, pampered by an impeccable service aimed at providing a totally relaxing experience? The Grand Hotel Residence in Cetraro, on the Tyrrhenian coast of Calabria, can provide you with a warm welcome in one of its independent apartments immersed in the peaceful, private grounds of this historic hotel.

Your choice of summer accommodation may reserve an unpleasant surprise if you are looking for a quiet place to relax mind and body so as to escape temporarily from the frenetic rhythms of the city.

This is because, during the holiday period, tranquil locations normally inhabited by a few people are invaded by an influx of tourists who transform the much sought-after tranquillity into the chaos of holidaymaking. The residential complex “Le Casette di San Michele” – surrounded by acres of lush greenery, perched above the blue Calabrian sea and overlooking a reef, distant from any populated centres - was created precisely to offer high class hotel accommodation with, at the same time, the maximum in terms of privacy.

Mini apartments with kitchen and bathroom

The 21 autonomous apartments have been created out of rural buildings, recently restored to respond better to the needs of guests.

Each mini apartment, sleeping from 2 to 5 persons, is equipped with a kitchen and a private bathroom. The apartment complex is situated on the edge of a century-old oak woodland, within the grounds of the San Michele Grand Hotel, just a short distance from the golf course and hotel farm.

Guests of the residence can, if desired, use all the facilities of the hotel, including the swimming pool and the beautiful private beach, reached by a lift to the reef.

Hole 3  - 506 m, Par 5, HCP ¾, longest of the course with double bend (first and second blind shots) and panoramic view. Entrance to green very narrow with vineyard on left and thickets/trees on right. On right and left there are two traps guarding the green;

Hole 4 – 303 m, Par 4, HCP 111/12, slightly uphill with green flanked by two greenside bunkers. Drive and pitch hole can be played safely also with two mid-iron shots;

Hole 5 - 125 m, Par 3, HCP 15/6. Spacious green barred by a cross-bunker, allows a wide choice of short clubs depending on the strength of player;

Hole 6 – 275 m, Par 4, HCP 13/14. Quite tricky tee shot to get past the road. Second to be played using a short mid-iron to the two-level green guarded by two greenside bunkers;

Hole 7 – 330 m, Par 4, HCP 9/10. Dogleg to left featuring a bunker at 220 m and entrance to two-level green flanked on either side by greenside bunkers creating a narrow course 10 m wide. The rear flush-bunker serves directional functions. Out of bounds runs continuously along the left side;

Hole 8 - 237 m, Par 4, HCP 7/8.  This is an abnormal hole, the blind stroke must aim at lightly grazing the eucalyptus trees on the left. With a continuous out of bounds running down the right side, maximum attention must be paid to choice of club and line of play. At 230 m, on the left side, the bunker makes finding the green much more difficult. The green is guarded by two greenside bunkers.
