A superb vision which hovers over the coast like the wing of an angel in Italy.

Imagine living in a “sky-swimming” 17th-century monastery hanging off the top of a dramatic cliff in Conca dei Marini, Italy.

Umoon-nightThe home of traditional, black habit cap attired nuns, that loved baking delicious handmade desserts — their specialty “sfogliatelle”, a shell-shaped, cream filled pastry, that became known as ‘Santa Rosa’ — today the former monastery has been painstakingly restored into a boutique, luxury hotel.  Ms. Bianca, the new owner, purchased the monastery  in 2002 and began a decade-long quest to restore the former monastery into one of Italy’s, and perhaps the world’s, most exquisite retreats.

Each guest room exudes a sense of tranquility of the nuns whom previously stayed here.   Monastero di Sananta Rosa is an intimate retreat that’s consistently bathed in the angelic sunlight of the Amalfi Coast.  Ms. Bianca prime focus, during development, was never lose the view of the beautiful vistas while creating an elegant ambiance,  graced by timeless Italian one-of-a-kind antiques.  She achieved her vision and once again Monsastero di Santa Rosa stands for glory, hospitality and honorable history.
