This living experience is different. That’s because you will not stay in any hotel but in rooms next to Buddhist or Catholic monks and former medieval monasteries kept something of the past and converted into hostels and luxury hotels.

Monastero Santa Rosa, Italy

The complete renovation of the 17th century created a unique brand new boutique hotel in the Amalfi Coast, which combines luxury and isolation among lush gardens with pool and sun loungers. Available to us just 20 rooms and suites bear the names of herbs used by the nuns of the monastery to prepare drugs. Each is decorated with Italian antiques and enjoy wonderful views of the Gulf of Salerno. Oasis of relaxation and spa facilities and benefits will envy even the most sophisticated sea therapy centers.
