We have just got back after two wonderful weeks at Fico d'India. When we arrived we were greeted by Pino who straight away offered us a cappucino. We had a beautiful room with a balcony with stunning views. Pino was a perfect host who on more than one occasion took us and picked us up in amalfi. Pino was always on hand to give us advice on the best mode of transport to take and help us with the bus timetable, and a few times even took us in his car to the bus stop, nothing was too much trouble for him. When we went for breakfast we were greeted by acilia (Pino's sister in law) we used to try to have a conversation with her which was fun as her english was better than our italian.The breakfast was really good with fresh figs and grapes from Pino's garden and fresh melon and beautiful homecooked pastries We eat in the restaurant quite a few times the food was excellent (all homecooked by Pino's father)
Pino's hospitality was second to none he would always say don't worry no problem there was nothing he would not do to make your holiday a one to remember. We were told by a tourist guide that Pino was the President of the hotel association (and this was much deserved as he cares very much for his guests comfort). I would definitely recommend this place. Thankyou so much Pino and gabriella (Pino's lovely wife)
Acilia, Manuel and Salvatore (Pino's assistants that were more than just waiters) .
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Holidays Fico d'India was born in 2005. The beauty of the home, which was inherited from the owners grandparents, was the starting point for the new design, keeping one objective in mind: to maintain intact the Mediterranean atmosphere that has always characterized the coast while recuperating antic traditions of the Campagne region. The care of the gardens, rich with exotic plants, lemon and orange trees, shows the love that the new owners have for their property. The choice of names was not difficult. "Fico d'India" or the prickly pear cactus is a plant that characterizes the Amalfi Coast and most all of Furore. Holidays Fico d'India is positioned overhanging the Sea, along the Walloon named " Vottara " that joins the sea at " Fiordo di Furore " , just 6 km from Amalfi center and 14 km from Positano. Holidays Fico d'India permits its guests to enjoy the double image of the coast, one side is characterized with the perfumes and sounds of the wild, rocky surroundings, the other side is the tradition of the warm and friendly hospitality. ... more less
