Spotlight: Villa Franca, Positano, Italy

Waking up with views of a pastel covered cliffside that runs down to the crisp, bold, blue water of the Tyrrhenian sea.  Villa Franca is a dreamy place to stay while exploring the Amalfi Coast.  A high end, adorable hotel that overlooks the sea will have you dreaming of European adventures. White washed walls and hand painted tiles enhance the villa's Italian flare and Mediterranean vibe.  Make sure to book a sea view room that comes with an adorable wrought iron balcony, perfect for sipping your morning cappuccino.  The friendly staff gave great recommendations for local places to grab a bite and cute shops to explore.  The villa rests above the majority of the town, which made for excellent views from the rooms and the restaurant.  To get down to the beach you walk through winding narrow passageways and streets, past cute shops and you'll see tons of painted Italian ceramics. Anything you desire in Positano is easily accessible from the Villa.  Just writing this made me want to go back! Happy wanderlusting!
