Locanda delle Donne Monache - Basilicata, Italy
About this Chic Retreat
Located in Maratea, Southern Italy, La Locanda delle Donne Monache is 30km from the coast of Policastro and set in the heart of Maratea's historical centre. Romantic, charming and unspoilt, this converted 18th-century convent is a boutique hotel for those looking to spend a holiday savouring the ancient flavours and surroundings of the Lucania region. The pretty hanging gardens are full to the brim with jasmine & bougainvillea and guests can relax in the loungers in the shade of the natural rock canopy. Gorgeous views over medieval Maratea can be enjoyed from the outdoor pool or for a day on the beach, hop on the shuttle to the nearby private beach. For dining, look no further than the locanda's Il Sacello restaurant with its exposed stone walls and porticoed terrace.
The 27 rooms & suites at this chic retreat are housed in the 18th-century building that was once a monastery. The deluxe rooms have lovely views over the village - each has a king-size bed and the superior rooms have king size beds and oversized bathrooms. The suites are wonderfully spacious and each has its own charm and character; one has a bathtub carved into rock, another has a large terrace with views onto the old town and there are 2 bi-level suites. Le Novizie suite is ideal for families. All rooms and suites are en-suite and have satellite TV, mini bars & air conditioning as standard.
This charming small hotel provides a shuttle service to the private beach where guests can enjoy complimentary sunbeds and beach umbrellas and for those who just want to stay at home there is a large swimming pool with loungers and umbrellas. Take a walk down the stone steps to Maratea with its medieval centre to enjoy a taste of Italian history and spend the day relaxing in the cafes of the main square and wandering the charming narrow alleys.
The restaurant Il Sacello serves wonderfully traditional and fresh food based on the regional flavours of the area.
