Can you narrow down to two lovely coastal areas with fabulous hotels?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning our annual "get away from the kids and let someone pamper us for a change" vacation for either June of September. In years past, our favorite places have been Amalfi Coast/Capri (Palazzo Avino, Le Sirenuse) and Santorini/Mykonos (Katikies). We have enjoyed the picturesque villages and small luxury hotels and have (lazily) returned several times to these same spots several times. This year, we're trying to branch out to one or two new places. We've thought of Portofino or Taormina in Italy (but are open to other ideas, perhaps in Sicily or other islands), and we've also thought about Ibiza or coastal mainland Spain. We haven't been to any of these, but are really looking for something to rival the jaw dropping effect of the scenery in our old-faithful spots. Our interests are gorgeous scenery, great village scene/culture, food/wine, and plenty of rest and relaxation. We typically plan these trips as if they are honeymoons, and look for places that are small and romantic and not full of families (after all, we are escaping our own kids). I'd love to hear the Fodorites' thoughts on a couple of places that would top your list, ideally with a hotel suggestion. Any ideas? Oh- for budget, let's pretend its not an issue to narrow down our dream locations, and we can figure out the best we can manage there.
