Travels with Karen: Awesome Amalfi Coast - ONE-TIME ONLY
Sant'Agata sui Due Golfi
As the saying goes, it is like being asked to name your favorite child, but that is actually quite apt. I have three sons and given a specific time, place, and set of circumstances anyone one of my sons can be my favorite. (Of course, they never know and I always tell each one they are my favorite!)
So it is with favorite places. But, if we measure by how often one returns to a place, then the Amalfi coast is right at the top of my list. Water draws me in, and when you combine that with the spectacular cliffs and vistas of the Mediterranean Sea, you will see why I have been there probably 20 times and still love going back.
Your home for the week is the elegant boutique Hotel Oasi Olimpia. I use the word “home” specifically, because it is like being a welcomed friend in someone’s home, not just a hotel guest. The present owner of the hotel was actually born there when it was a private house owned by his family. Eventually, the house was sold and for many years it was in a state of disrepair. About twenty years ago he bought the house and turned it into what is today a charming small hotel with all the amenities. It is on a very large property with a lovely swimming pool facing the sea, a tennis court, a vegetable garden, and hothouse and vast areas to sit and enjoy the views and the ambiance.
Whenever possible, meals are taken outside under the wisteria covered pergola, where you can sit and gaze out at the Mediterranean. Truly, this is a magical place and of what dreams are made. When we were approached by NBC Extra's Mansions and Millionaires to do a feature on one of our programs located on the Amalfi coast, this was my first choice for them. (See the segment here). And, we are delighted and proud to be a part of this wonderful program.
I hope you will join me on this awesome journey. - Karen Herbst
