Rifugio degli Dei is described as a country house on the Amalfi Coast. . . it should be described as a small paradise on the Amalfi Coast! We spent two enchanting weeks here and fell in love with Rifugio degli Dei and the owners, the Fusco Family. When we arrived in Positano, Ottavio Fusco picked us up in his awesome Cinquecento (my first ride EVER in a Fiat 500) and drove us to the bottom of the steps that led to the Villa. His son, Simone, met us there and told us the history of the Villa, as we walked up and up and up the steps to the most beautiful vacation home we could ever imagine!
The room was sparkling clean, the bed was very comfortable, the bathroom shower was awesome, and the VIEW was AMAZING! A perfect view of beautiful Positano greeted us every morning from our villa window! Loved it!! The Villa is nestled amid lush green gardens bursting with figs, grapes, fruit and vegetables! I'm telling you, this place is heaven!
And just when we thought it couldn't get any better, we ate our first of Anna's breakfasts! These breakfasts on the balcony alone are worth staying here. . . fresh cornettos with marmalades or Nutella, sweet figs, melons, grapes, yogurt, bruschetta (my husband's favorite) and the best of all, Anna's homemade cakes! Lemon cake, Orange Cake, and my personal favorite, Chocolate Nutella Cake! Everything homemade and just-picked-fresh from the gardens. The honey was even fresh from the beehives on the property and was quite possibly the best we've ever tasted. Oh yes, Anna's breakfasts were definitely a highlight of every day!
The experience was made perfect in every way by Davide Fusco. Warm and friendly, Davide served us breakfast every morning with a smile and made us feel like family. He went out of his way to suggest places for us to see and even printed maps to remote areas for us. We looked forward to talking with him every morning!
Rifugio degli Dei is everything the description promises and more. . .and the Fusco's are very special people who will make your vacation memorable. We have booked again for next year and cannot wait to return! Amiamo Positano e Rifugio degli Dei! Arrivederci alla prossima estate!
