“Real Farm Life on the Amalfi Coast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

A visit here will reveal all that is a fifth generation agricultural existence, set on a mountainside that shadows the beautiful Amalfi Coast. This proud and incredibly hard working family will treat you to their home grown gastronomic delights each night, if you so choose. Eating out would be difficult at night without the use of a car, although driving on the Amalfi Coast is not for the faint hearted. My wife and I used the limited and at times not so reliable bus service to return in the evenings. The bus service on the Coast is quite good, but Furore is a little remote.The walk down to the Coast via the donkey trail is a bit of an adventure in itself, but worth the effort, taking about an hour, (the locals insist only 45 minutes). Accommodation is very clean, although our bed mattresses pretty "firm". The towels are definitely not Egyptian cotton but will give you a good exfoliation. The hot water may take a little time to arrive through the shower, so just be patient. Rosa, the eldest of the two daughters is a tireless worker, slight in build but strong as any farm girl. She is passionate about her family's "agriculture", and seems to be the heir apparent. Overall a truly grounding experience that should be witnessed by all, particularly technology absorbed teens from our western world.

Room Tip: The dilemma, as I see it, is a car is highly beneficial on the Amalfi Coast, but parking and driving...

A nice little farmstay, tucked away in the beautiful, tranquil hills of Furore. A great change from the busy, much more touristy towns of the Amalfi Coast below. It's run by a very nice local family that makes sure your stay is an enjoyable one. The food, as previous reviews state, is excellent and was the highlight of the stay. All locally produced in this amazing location. I think some of the reviews mention the road to the farm being difficult but we didn't experience any problems (altho we had a small car). It's not as wide as the main road, but no harder to navigate than most roads on the Amalfi Coast. Just realise that once you're at the farm, there's not that much to do in the immediate area (apart from walks). If you don't feel like trekking (and greeting the not-so friendly local dogs), you'll need to get back in the car and brave the Almafi Coast's windy roads once more. The accommodation is also fairly basic... clean but basic. The bed's springs were a little tired and the towels could be renewed. So if you're used to comfort and modern furnishings, this may not be the best place for you.

Our hosts were amazingly hospitable and made our 3 night stay there exceptional. We were overcome with the amount of work necessary to farm vertically! Dominque was a great host and Rosa's capability with English/Italiano helped with communication. A wonderful family, great location, and a good opportunity to experience Amalfi 'farming'. The only downside is it is difficult to get to without a vehicle (although we certainly managed to do so) and transportation options are a little limited.

A wonderful Place to rest and admire the Beautiful nature of the Amalficoast. The family which ows the Place is working hard to give the best procucts to the guests. The food and the wine is amazing, Everything is fresh, only local Products are used and prepared in the typical italian way: genuinely and with a lot of care. The rooms are spacious, quiet, Clean and perfect in order to have a rest from the stress of everyday Life.

What an exceptional stay! First I would like to thank them again - we booked a room for 2 nights but had to cancel 3 days before since my friend became sick and we were in the hospital in Rome. We wrote them and they did not charge us for the cancellation even though it clearly said that full price would be charged with late cancellation. Since it got such good reviews when my friend got better we managed to re-book for a night. We are so happy we insisted on coming. Rooms were very clean and comfy. But the exceptional thing is this family. The work in their farm with no out side help, just mother father and two daughters. The grow grapes for delicious wine, all sorts of crops and have acow, goats, pigs, a horse... The dinner is 25Euro per person and is totally worth it. So much great food, all homemade from the meat to the cheese, to the tomato sauce. We have been in other homemade dinners in other agriturismos, but none was as rich and special. We were fascinated by their friendliness and high work ethics. Rosa the girl was the perfect hostess. She has great english and she told us a lot abiut their farm, their lives and about the area. The location is very easy to reach by car. A real unique experience. Don't miss it...

Room Tip: Think all are the same pretty much.

I did expect a lot - nice isolated location, home made italian pasta and friendly owner. But reality was much much better. Casa is far away from tourists, souvenir shops and crazy traffic ( and I mean CRAZY!) You have a view to wineyard valley and mountains with kilometres of trekking paths with best sea and coast view you can imagine. All you eat, from breakfast to grande dinner is produced by Dominic and his family and they can talk about all pomodore, pasta, olives or vine and limoncelo with love and for hours :-). Do not miss dinner, it consists of many courses but you will love it. This is also nice opportunity to talk to other guests. Dominic is doing his best to introduce each guest to others so finally it is a big Italian fiesta! I falled in love to this place and Dominic family :-)

I stayed for a few nights with my sister, brother-in-law, and baby niece, and can't wait to get back to Serafina. The family who run the farm are absolutely delightful. Dominico's passion is infectious and Rosa's quiet intelligence helps bridge the gap between English and Italian. They did well to cater for a vegetarian, and their generosity was overwhelming. The best limoncello I've ever had! You really should visit Serafina if you want an authentic Italian argotourismo experience. Highly recommended!
