Warm breezes with the scent of lemon in the air, lazy strolls on cobblestone streets filled with pastel-colored houses, charming cafes that only serve local fare, secret coves around every headland—-the Amalfi Coast is a hidden gem that is home to the most beautiful vistas in Italy. There is no where quite like it, and you will be drawn in with its intoxicating blend of sophistication and beautiful simplicity. Your home for the week is one of the most beautiful family villas perched on the edge of the cliffs in Positano. You will be greeted daily with spectacular sea views from sunrise to sunset-soaking in the warm Mediterranean sun on your skin and enjoying the lemon-scented breeze. Not only are there miles and miles of coastline, but ancient towns and small villages perched on the top of cliffs and lemon groves that stretch to the sea.
“Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.” – John Steinbeck
We could not say it better. The Amalfi Coast is a treasured place that artists have retreated to for centuries. It fully exudes dolce far niente better than anywhere else. Your soul, mind, body, and spirit will not only fully rest….but be filled to be more fruitful and creative upon returning. The beauty cannot be described with words, it must be experienced. Your time here will remain with you always. Italy is place the we can truly step into and live out our creative souls, and we would love to share it with you.
On The Cottage Table Experience Amalfi Coast Retreat you are not a tourist, but a guest, as you experience the local hospitality of this hidden gem of Italy. We seek to intentionally savor meals, moments, and people wherever we find ourselves. Will you join us at the table in the Amalfi Coast?
Come with us for an experience that will remain with you always. This is a place that surely bites deep.

What Others Are Saying About The Cottage Table Retreats:
“There are many beauty chasers in this life, but you are beauty chasers that invite others into the journey of seeing with fresh eyes! Thank you for all the intention that went into this time. Without a doubt, the relationships you have nurtured here along Lake Como had everything to do with the beauty you allowed all of us to be lavished in. Thank you for all the ways you gathered, set a table of invitation before us, and over and over showed Christ to those along Lake Como and all of us. I have been getting messages this morning from some of the other women on the retreat and just reminiscing about how special it was. It was truly hard for each of us not to sign up for the next one and do it all over again. Thank you for such an experience. Jesus was all over your workshop in beauty, love, impacting the community, seeds planted, truly reflecting Christ, the words and prayers you spoke over each of us each day, your heart for everyone, Keith’s tender heart to love and serve, and in so many ways we won’t know this side of heaven.” ~Jeanne Oliver
“Thank you for dreaming up this magical adventure for us – it has been such an incredible experience from the moment I stepped into the villa. I’m grateful for you both for all the memories I’ve been able to gather – from the gorgeous welcome dinner, the incredible accommodations, to all the places we went + your gracious generosity. You both have such beautiful + loving hearts – you have truly blessed us all.” ~ Andrea Garvey
“Thank you for executing all of your thought and ideas to create this beautiful Italy experience for us. I could just imagine you thinking and dreaming up all the ways you can show love on people and make us all believe we could do anything and come out the better people for it. Your attention to detail and love for the people is both obvious and contagious. I don’t know if I would have been bold or brave enough to sign up for this trip if it wasn’t for you. One, because I’ve seen you inspire myself and others over and over again through the years and have come to trust you and fall in love with you as a mama, friend, and sister in Christ. And, two, you made this trip become a dream that simply could not be passed up! Thank you for inviting us to be a small part of your world. John and I are thrilled to be here! We have made some great new friendships and have shared and listened to the hearts of those in this group. I look forward to what is next with The Cottage Table Experience.” ~ Debra Stensrud
“I will treasure this experience in my heart for eternity. You have expanded my understanding of beauty, peace, and love. Each activity gave me new knowledge and enlightenment. Thank you for the beauty and peace you offered so generously. My heart has enlarged from your ability to bring friendship, fun, spirituality, and love into the most spectacular experience!” ~ Bonnie Purcell
“Life changing – the two words that describe the week I have spent at Lake Como. Thank you for an exquisite experience filled with love, laughter, food, and incredible experiences.” ~ Renee Mueller
