Welcome to one of the most beautiful villages in Italy.
Summonte, the place that in the antiquity was chosen by the Normans as a settlement for the optimal position that offered an extraordinary view of the vast surrounding territory, today is Summonte, the village characterized by the spectacular Angevin Tower from where you can appreciate the vast view of the Park Regional of the Partenio and the surrounding area and is also a unique point of view of the Sanctuary of Montevergine and even of the Gulf of Naples.
A place in which it is possible to appreciate how nature and technological evolution have developed in harmony, without distortions, in view of the enhancement of natural resources and the conservation of precious ancient remains.
It will welcome a community that has its roots in agriculture, animal husbandry and crafts and is expanding its business model, believing and investing in sustainable tourism, in the name of promotion, tradition, history, of culture, enogastronomy and the uncontaminated environment.
Becoming a member of the most beautiful villages in Italy certainly represents an excellent opportunity, but it is for us above all a considerable responsibility to continue this dichotomous path of development and conservation, of progress and enhancement of natural resources.
Getting to Summonte, in the green Partenio, at 750 meters above sea level, means not only discovering the suggestions of the historical center and the environmental path, but also quench your thirst from sources of pure spring water, take enchanting trekking paths, regenerate in characteristic mountain shelters , live carefree evenings letting yourself be transported by folklore and sound during musical festivals and traditional festivals, savor local products.
Representing a territory such as Partenio, a few steps from Naples, the Royal Palace of Caserta (with which an important Memorandum of Understanding was defined) and the Sorrento and Amalfi Coast, also means taking responsibility for an overall development project, which passes for the defense of the habitat, for its enhancement, for the respect of those who live there, proposing socio-economic relaunch actions based on environment, culture and tourism: real levers for growth.
It is an important step to represent this less known part of the South within the network of the most beautiful villages, and this recognition is also a guarantee for those who come to visit us.
We will work even harder to offer you the best possible reception and make you appreciate our riches: art, culture and landscape.
Thank you and have a good stay on behalf of the whole community.
