Get Away No. 1 - Monastero Santa Rosa

In ogni finestra il sole, da ogni finestra il mare. Which means "in every window the sun, from every window the sea".  That is how the locals describe Conca, a quaint fishing village along the Coast of Amalfi. And the Monastero Santa Rosa is built on the side of the mountainside in this village.

Gasp! Are you gasping? Look at these garden paths!

Monastero Santa Rosa was originally a 17th century monastery which has been restored into an exclusive boutique hotel and luxury spa. There are 20 rooms and suites, a pool, and gardens that lead to a 12th-Century chapel.

The spa retains the original monastery's stone. Just knowing that already puts you in that dreamy relaxed state of mind.

I think I've selected my "some day" suite, The Citrus Suite with the Citrus Terrace beckoning.
