What Used To Be A Jesuit Convalesant Retreat

Grand Hotel Cocumella
On a peaceful, picturesque corner of the Sorrento peninsula, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and the Gulf of Naples, lies a 16th century Jesuit Monastery, now the Grand Hotel Cocumella. Set amongst an oasis of citrus groves and beautiful gardens, the hotel's name comes from the nymph Colomelide, meaning honey pot, so called by the Jesuit fathers due to the phenomenal position and incredible fertility of the landscape.
