This has been my family’s second trip to the Grotta dei Fichi and it has been as magical as the first. This area of Italy may be beautiful, but this villa is the most beatiful spot of all!! Amalfi can wait – take time to enjoy this magnificent house and its views. It’s the perfect place to forget that the rest of the world exists!
Thank you again for allowing us to share your heaven on earth! We’re coming back the next July!!

A nice way for us to end our three weeks in Italy. The rocky walls, and the blue ocean below made the time we spent here an amazing adventure. Every local area we explored from Positano to Capri was unique and memorable in each of their own ways. Even though we are a long way from Buffalo, NY we felt like we were at home, sitting on the terrace, with the view of the moon light spilling over the island across the way. Thanks for lending us your home for a week. The 8 of us will never forget it. Grazie.

The best and the most beautiful thing in the world cannot be seen nor touched, but we felt in our hearts!!!
Villa Grotta dei Fichi is captivating and will remain a life time memory! and I would love to come back each year…..
Me and my friends, just got back from this charming Cliff house and the sense of having left such an amazing place does seem to work on the psyche.
The unimaginable Blue Water, the cliff and above all the most UNIQUE VILLA! It is so beautiful that it seems alost ETHEREAL!!!!
Bravo Doctor! Your vision to create this Villa is beyond imagination. When we walked through the gates, we were awed by the view, the garden and the whole theme of working with the rocks and the cliff!
Hospitality and the warmth of Vincenzo, really touched upon us. We became good friends and felt we were at home. His Culinary Art is amazing. He has a great passion and understading of Italian cooking.
A great experience!
All I can say is A THING OF BEAUTY IS A JOY FOREVER!

A week ago I opened the arched gates and stepped into heaven!
I now look back and reflect upon a most enjoyable vacation. Grotto dei Fichi in an amazing home situated upon such scenic cliffs. Each angle of the home offers a new and special view.
Tomorrow I will walk back through the arched doorway and say goodbye to a place that felt like home!
PEGGY HICKS 08 April 2009
Upon entering through the doors of this Villa, what we found is nothing that any of the four of us could have ever imagined! We felt as we were in a remarkable “wonder land”. La Grotta dei fichi became a loving home to us for one week and oh, how we hate to leave! This vacation has been a dream vacation. We enjoyed our visits to Isle of Capri, Pompei, Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi. We thank the Doctor for sharing their heavely cliff home! We will have many wonderful memories of our dream vacation in a MOST ENCHANTING land and “our” cliff home away from home!

Six days, or six minutes ago, that I strode anxiously into a Cliffside paradise?
Either way it was the best time spent in a long time. The word of the day here was always “unbelievable”, and it was repeated every time someone ventured a glance at the spectacular Mediterranean shimmering hundreds of feet below us.
Before I leave let me give a suggestion: WOOD FIRED PIZZA! As I stated before, it’s unbelievable

We have enjoyed spending days here enjoying the great view and the pool and just relaxing…
The gardens are wonderful… just to walk though and look or sit is a great treat!
To sit by the pool at night and watch the stars fall from the sky…
Thank you for sharing this wonderful home with us… We will come back for sure… I hope other guest enjoy “Grotto dei Fichi” as much as we did…
