Let all guests who arrive be received like Christ.

(Rule of St. Benedict, 53:1)

Hospitality is one of the values that have been an unswerving characteristic of the abbey of Sant'Antimo and its Benedictine community over the centuries.

The abbey is the ideal venue for organising spiritual retreat days for groups of young people or families, who can take their meals in the San Benedetto and Santa Scolastica halls or in the open-air lunch garden adjacent to the halls. Groups may also use the kitchen to prepare their own food.

The abbey's guesthouse, situated in the village of Castelnuovo dell'Abate, can host individual visitors or small groups wishing to hold spiritual retreats of more than one day, or simply to spend time recharging their batteries in the peace and quiet of the abbey's idyllic surroundings.

The guesthouse has 10 double rooms situated on two floors. Each room has an individual washbasin, while bathrooms are shared. Each bed is provided with a blanket and a pillow. Unfortunately the guesthouse is not accessible to disabled visitors.
