Grand Hotel San Michele - Cetraro (CS), Italy

NanoPlasm 2024 will be held in the 4-star "Grand Hotel San Michele" at Cetraro, Italy, from 17th to 21st of June 2024. Cetraro is an ancient sea hamlet with a millennium-old history located along the Tyrrhenian coastal track, known as the Riviera dei Cedri. The town which is known for its fishing and touristic harbor is the ideal place for a lunch with fish: here the typical speciality is the rosamarina (a newborn bluefish), exquisite delicacy longed for by tourists that come numerous to Cetraro, especially in the summer. The Hotel is located high on a 120 m cliff overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. On a clear day you may see the Eolian islands. Situated just outside the township of Cetraro, the hotel is surrounded by an organic farm of 44 hectares that everyday provides the hotel with fresh organic food: fruits, vegetables, olive oil, wine, milk and cheese, daily laid eggs, lamb, veal and pork meat, home made jams and preserves. The golf course (9 holes, par 70), nicely landscaped among vineyards, olive groves and fruit trees, is provided with driving range, putting green and Club House. Inside, the hotel offers two restaurants and a breakfast room, while in nice weather one may enjoy breakfast and dinner on the two beautiful terraces overlooking the sea. The hotel possesses modern meeting facilities, a private Mediterranean beach for swimming and outdoor dining, golf course, vineyard and cellar, swimming pool, tennis court, bars and restaurants with complete meal services. For registered participants and their accompanying persons, the hotel offers a reduced rate per person that includes full breakfast, lunch, and dinner, receptions, and refreshments, and use of conference facilities. Spaces are also available for exhibits.
