“Perfect location for Path of the Gods in a really beautiful spot. Room was lovely, food was amazing (along with homemade limoncello) and the staff were so nice. Not the place for you if you want a beach trip but if you want peace and quiet in a gorgeous location with great hikes then stay here!..”
“Amazing hospitality, we honestly couldn’t have asked for better hosts. The property is located on a picturesque cliff and is definitely a place that you look forward to returning to after a day of sight seeing on the Amalfi Coast. Dinners at Orrido di Pino were amazing, lovely fresh pasta, garden fresh salads and delectable desserts rounded off with a customary home made limoncello. We would love to return there again. We had a fantastic stay at this amazing place…”
