My family and I had a wonderful stay in April at " La Locanda Delle Donne Monache ". After travelling through the mountains we took the coast road from Sapri which had spectacular views of the coast line. As we approached Maratea we were greeted by the breath taking mountains which surround it." What was the Hotel going to be like? " we wondered.
Our arrival at the hotel, nestled in a quiet street, was pleasant. We were met by Vincenza, the manager and other members of staff; the warm welcome outweighed our expectations.
We were shown to our suites and wandered through delightful corridors, beautifully understated with unusual sculptures and paintings. I will never forget the scent that laced the air as we passed by. There was an instant peace felt by all of us. We had begun to unwind!!
When we walked into our rooms we were amazed by the tranquility of them and the bottle of champagne, fruit and pastries were a nice touch.We enjoyed the surroundings of our rooms for a while, the huge bed, the wonderful aroma and of course the peace and quiet!
To feel at home in a hotel environment is unusual for me! To feel at home with the staff is even more unusual!! But I did!!!!
I felt very comfortable, they were unobtrusive, but available with a friendly disposition if you needed them.
We had a delightful time eating in the restaurant. I lost count of how many courses we ate at lunch, we left it to the chef to decide at Vincenza's direction. We enjoyed: Salmon, Sea bass and suckling pig - some of the flavours I will never forget!
We cannot wait to come back and see the Hotel family again and enjoy another thoroughly relaxing break.
