“A very special and unique experience”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

After spending 4 days solo on the beautiful isle of Capri, I met family and friends at La Grotta dei Fichi. This villa with its breathtaking views, provided us with a most memorable 7 day vacation!! Vincenzo, the concierge, was always available and provided us with invaluable information. We shared many good times and meals with him. His Pizza Night at the villa is a MUST!!!! Day trips to Ravello, Positano, Amalfi and Sorrento are a must and easily accessible by car.

This property is hard to describe, in its beauty and uniqueness. And Vincenzo takes care of your every need. The photos do not really do justice, as the design and use of space is just so special. And the views of the Sea are just stunning.
We've been home for 2 weeks and cannot wait to go back. I give it my highest recommendation.

I spent one week with my family at la Grotta dei Fichi, and it is hard to believe this place is real. The view of the Mediterranean is only rivaled by the creativity of the Grotta's design. Because it is build along the side of a mountain into the rock, you can choose a variety of different "platforms" from which to look out at the Sea. I particularly enjoyed reading in the Thinking Spot, the farthest-most platform where the silence allowed to hear the soft breaking of the waves below. Vincenzo, the manager of the property, offers incredible gourmet opportunities, and has so much information about the local hot-spots and must-sees. His pizza is incredible.

Just back from staying at this beautiful property. Many properties have views but this one is incredible. If you are looking for a "complete experience" this is the place to be. The owners are fantastic. By the way, the pictures don't do justice!

Room Tip: you have the entire villa -- no need to select a room.

I did celebrate my 40th birthday in "La Grotta dei fichi" with my friends. The experience was more than it is possible to explain with any words. The place was absolutely imaginative and unique. The view to the sea was fantastic and very relaxing. Everything went well in the villa, all necessary (even much more) things were on hand there. Thank you Vincenzo!!! I really have long lasting memories from Amalfi coast.

I had the possibility to celebrate my friend's birthday at Villa. First of all the view to the sea was so beautiful I will always remember it. Also the Villa with the garden(s) was a wonderful and beautiful experience. Grazie mille!
