“Amazing place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Difficult to put into words what this wonderful place is like. We were looking for an agriturismo in tail as we had had previous good experiences with similar venues. This one came recommended.
Dominico, Rosa, Elernor and 'mama' are just the most perfect hosts. The warm welcome from them was second to none. Rosa showed us around the property and was clearly passionate about giving us a great experience.
The dogs also greeted us at every opportunity which was lovely !
The food............well, where do I start? If you stay here you just 'have' to experience dinner. We were there for 7 nights on a walking holiday and only ate out once, such was the quality of the food and service. IMO you will not experience anything like it anywhere else. Truly magical. All food was quite literally 'fresh' from the land - often picked the previous day. We saw Elenor at the top of the fig trees every morning getting the best fruit for breakfast.
Each meal was different and all home grown and produced. Meats home cured. Cheeses made on site. They even have fresh kiwi fruit under the bedroom windows.
The rooms were excellent. Air-conditioning if you need it. All have balconies with amazing views.
We walked from the agriturismo almost every day. For runners out there, the running is rugged but superb - lots of up and down and trail running. Take off road trainers.
In summary, this place is magical and we were even given fresh grapes and lemon marmalade on our departure - what an amazing family and an amazing agriturismo.

You could not complain about this place (well I am sure someone could but you will be able to identify them as idiots pretty quickly). It is nothing short of perfect.

A truly excellent place with a passionate and wonderful family running it.

Book early and stay longer than you intended to. If not you will want to stay longer guaranteed

Room Tip: There is a natural swimming pool about 30 mins walk away - the sea !! The fitness centre is just ou...

My fiance and I just spent 3 nights in Serafina with Dominic & his family. It was brilliant! The farm is set high in the cliffs overlooking the Amalfi coast and Dominic and his girls (Rosa & Elena) along with their 6 dogs (and our favorite puppy, Annie) are happy to show you the grounds.

They have 2 cows, goats, a pony, 6 pups, birds, and much of the food eaten in the fantastic nightly meals (which are very filling) are grown right there on their farm. His family works particularly hard all day but provides the most exquisite hospitality at night. It honestly is like you are family visiting.

Accommodations are clean and rustic yet provide enough of what you'd need. We had a gorgeous balcony with a view of the terraced farming in the cliffs and could hear the bells of the goats of their neighbors during the day. It was great!

By night we sat down to a very large meal in a communal area (either on the back deck outside if weather cooperated or inside by the hearth), both of which were lovely. Each table is given quite a few anti-pastas, meats/cheeses, homemade bread, followed by homemade pasta and a meat or smoked cheese to follow. Our absolutely favorite part were the fresh honey figs served at breakfast or after dinner. We've both enjoyed figs but fresh figs have never tasted so as fresh!! Domonic's homemade wine (both red and white) went down way too easily and can only be topped by his 3 types of limoncello (our favorite being crema lemoncello... outstanding!!!).

Their family made us feel very at home. Often we'd come home from a day trips to Positano, Capri, or Amalfi town and would search the farm and play with the dogs.

Highly recommend staying a few days here. As others mention- the bus is about 40 min to Amalfi- and is only offered a few times a day. Plan to head out by 9:50 (or was it 8:50?) I believe and back by 6:40pm. That was the only part that limited our excursions, but at the same point we wanted to be back and showered up for the meal at 8pm! 2 Euros bus price and honestly you can take pretty much and bus or boat once you're in Amalfi town, which is where the mini bus drops you.

It's worth a different view and experiencing the organic experience of the home Dominic and family have created in Furore. We are still talking about this part of our trip to our friends and family!

My Husband and I spent two nights with Domenico and his family. It was a refreshing change to the other hotels and accommodations we had stayed at. This is a true working farm, it is authentic and slightly rustic accommodation.

One of the best things about Serafina is that the bus into Amalfi, among other stops, is right outside their door and is 2 euros. It is an excellent location for exploring the towns south of Furore (ie. Amalfi, Ravello, Priano), but it would be a bit more complicated if you wanted to go to Positano.

In the evening an amazing dinner is available for a reasonable price. It starts around 830, so it allows you plenty of time to freshen up after the day. The food and wine served is all from their property and is quite delicious and filling.

On one day we walked down to Priano, it took about an hour and the terrain was not unexpected for the mountainous area. Wear appropriate shoes if you wish to do this.

The family is extremely proud, lovely and hardworking. They are the ones who make this place so special. We would not hesitate to return in the future.

Fabulous! We had a wonderful time with Dominico, Josephina, Rosa and Elenor at their farm Serafina Agriturismo. We arrived early but this was not a problem and we were shown around the farm and met the family and their animals while our bedroom was made ready. Our room was large with a very comfortable bed. There was a small refrigerator for cooling drinks, a balcony and a large bathroom. The view of the mountains was spectacular and we had a side sea view. Amazing how these steep mountain sides are farmed without machinery. These people are extremely hard working and still had time to explain all about the working of the farm, it's produce and animals. You can even help on the farm if you wish to do so, learn to string garlic, pod beans or help with harvesting the grapes in September. We ate here each evening, the organic home grown meals including wine and lemoncello were delicious and great value for money. It is also a good time to speak to the hosts and fellow guests - most enjoyable! There is a sun terrace with sun beds for relaxing in the afternoon and viewing the stunning scenery. We were very sorry to have to leave. An experience we will never forget.

Many thanks to Domenico and family to make our holiday memorable!!

Even though we arrived way earlier than check-in time, our room was ready. It was very helpful because it was a rainy morning. Then we were showed around the house where they make their own fantastic lemoncello, ham, salami and jam...We were also provided a lot of information about bus schedule, etc which was very helpful.

The agriturismo is facing a beautiful view, and there's a nice 45-min walk to a town nearby where we could swim at the beach.

But most of all, the thing that makes Serafina memorable is the kindness and the hospitality of Domenico and family; not to mention the fantastic dinner that they prepared. We hope to be back there one day!!

Serafina was the first Agriturismo in which we had ever stayed, and it will be close to impossible to match this experience! From the moment we arrived, we were greeted warmly by Domenico and Rosa. They helped us with our bags and showed us around the farm. Our view from the balcony was just incredible!

Over the three nights we were there, the whole family made us feel so welcome. We most enjoyed the dinners in the evening. All of the food was prepared with fresh ingredients right from the farm. Some of the best food we had through our travels in Italy. Delicious!!!

Agriturismo Serafinanis set above the larger towns and, due to the winding roads, it takes some time to drive to them. We had a rental car, so we drove to the beaches below and found a garage with paid parking.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to others as a tranquil escape from the busy tourist areas. We thank Domenico, Rosa, Giuseppina and Elena for their hospitality and hope to return again someday!

Agriturismo Serafina has provided everything we were looking for: A real taste of Italy, together with wonderful food, wine and fantastic limoncello in the beautiful surroundings off the beaten tourist track. It was a pleasure to stay with Domenico and his family, who introduced us to their sustainable lifestyle in the most positive way. Everything carefully prepared by Family Fusco comes directly from the farm: Antipasti, home made pasta, meat, fruit and vegetables as well as wine and limoncello. Don't miss also the torta caprese, it's fantastic! Rooms are equipped with everything you need and they are very clean, spacious and with an amazing view. The hospitality is outstanding! Many thanks to Domenico, Signora Rosa, Giuseppina and Elena for this wonderful experience - we have found our little paradise in the mountains of Furore, simply great! For sure we will come back.
