If you are looking for paradise, you have found it at Refugio Degli Dei! My husband and I just returned from our 11 day stay to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We have done a lot of traveling and have high expectations. The Fusco family exceeded every one of them! This was the best vacation in our life! Often it is the people that make the difference and the service is consistently a 5 star level. It is obvious that this family really enjoys hosting guests - it shows in everything that they do! At every turn, they went above and beyond to make sure that every detail was taken care of. We wanted something special for our 25th anniversary and we feel like we found our own little paradise! We stayed in Dioniso and enjoyed the privacy of our own terrace, wifi was great (even on the terrace), the room was immaculate, gleaming and much bigger than they show on the web, amazing water pressure in the shower. They are very insightful and engage on the level that you desire, never imposing as some B&B's do. Davide & Anna handled our dinner reservations, car hires, set up our scooter (dropped at Refugio for us) and gave us a wealth of information to make our daily adventures as fun and easy as possible. Ottavio shared his limoncello with us and even brought us to Amalfi when we ran into a problem with the bus schedule. Anna even taught me how to make her delicious lemon cake! There were a couple of unexpected surprises - great safe in the room, ac in living room and bedroom, hairdryer in bathroom, jam packed mini frig with tons of goodies - drink and eat them all, best prices around, located across the street from Arienzo beach (the best in the area - quiet and beautiful). It was a 1 km walk to town. It was great to be away from all the busy "touristy" area of Positano, very scenic and free shuttles for dinner at night - La Tagliata, Il Ritrovo or walk to Bar Bruno. Yes, there are stairs, big and little, with a walkway in between, but with this view, who bothers to count! Just treat yourself to homemade limoncello when you reach the top :) And no worries, everyone stops to rest here and there along the way! This is the perfect place for couples looking for a romantic place and still be able to be active (hike/swim) or go into Positano for more excitement. It is hard to describe just how amazing Refugio is - just GO!!! You'll be so happy that you did! We can't wait to return again!
Anna, Ottavio, Davide - grazie per averci fatto sentire così speciale!
