The Hague, The Netherlands
Heavenly Villa on the amalfi Coast
Thanks to Renato & Annalisa we had one of the greatest and most beautiful weeks of our lives. I think there is not such a wonderful place in the world to stay with your friends and family as Villa Sgrosso. After searching and visiting many places to celebrate our wedding and the start of our honeymoon, we unanimously went for Villa Sgrosso. The warm welcome, the treats, the ideas - Renato and annalisa breathe luxury and authenticity. They overwhelm you with their love and they treat you like their friends. Nothing is too much asked. If you forget something, they remember. And besides that, they know all the best places and local traditions. Not only is the amalfi Coast breathtaking, Villa Sgrosso is one of the best kept secrets and idyllic places. The different terraces that give you all the privacy you need, the rocks where you can dive and swim to the private little beach. The roof terrace with its astonishing views, the shadows of the lemon and orange orchards and the wellness in the bedrooms…. It doesn’t get any better in live. Thank you Renato & Annalisa for making our wedding and the week we celebrated with our family and friends one of warmest and special memories in our lives. You are lovely people who have a place in our hearts. Lots of love, Edo, Mara, Sami & Eli
Response from Renato and Annalisa Sgrosso - 01/02/2013
Dear Mara and Edo,
we wish you, Sami, Eli, Mom, Massimo and all your relatives a very Merry Christams and a Happy New Year.
Also we want to thank you so much indeed for your splendid review on Flipkey/Tripadvisor. It has contributed, togheter with other reviews, to let us receive from Flipkey the remarkable title of TOP VACATION RENTAL RAVELLO, winner 2012!
This can help us to have more visibility on the Web and maybe more inquiries. It certainly confirms we are doing well at making people confortable in Dimora di mare as they were in their own home.
We have to keep up this good work and possibly improve. Your review seems to come from your heart like a declaration of love and push us in the right direction. Whatever we did for you was a pleasure to us and was extremely easy since the two of you have something magic in you that makes things simple to happen and people at their ease and happy. We felt this treasure in you from the very first moment we met. We know it is a very rare and valuable gift and you'll keep it secure inside of you forever. Thank you also for making us part of the beauty and magically of your weddings' traditions.
Please do not forget to thank Massimo and Mom so much for their beautiful review in our guests book.
We hope to see you again soon or later. With love
Renato e Annalisa
Most beautiful place in Italy!
Words cannot express how incredibly beautiful this Villa and the owners are! Renato and anna Lisa have made this Villa into an amalfi Oasis. From the moment you step inside you are lost for words. Not only is the view one of the best in the world, but the Villa is by far the best place to stay on the amalfi Coast. You will never find a better location or home to spend a week in. There was a group of 10 of us from Toronto Canada and from the moment we got there Renato treated us like family. I promise you, you will be at a loss for words when you spend a week in this Villa, it truly is magical! Renato, we miss you already!!! Thank you so very much for making our stay in amalfi one we will never forget. And, whether its a year from now or 10, you will see us again someday! Lots of love, Jason and Candice. xoxo

To say this is an amazing villa is an understatement. Dimora di
To say this is an amazing villa is an understatement. Dimora di mare is a dream retreat and it is more like a castle then a villa. The owners annalisa & Renato are the most genuine and accommodating hosts and take care of the smallest detail. The property is gorgeous, the food is beyond expectations, the cooking class on site is a must do, the boat to Capri is unforgettable and the sea side access is the perfect way to start the day. If you are travelling to Italy and are looking for a guaranteed amazing time, then look no further. Our group of ten was completely blown away and can't thank them enough for making our vacation a once in a life time experience. You will live in our hearts forever! Robyn and Dean
Relaxing, beautiful week in Italy
Renato and annalisa were such wonderful hosts for our week in Italy. Everything exceeded our expectations. The home was beautiful, very comfortable and the view could not be beat! We definitely plan to go back.
Response from Renato and Annalisa Sgrosso - 06/12/2012
Dear Lynn and Tj,
Dear Judy and Peter,
Dear Jim and Allison,
I hope this email finds you all well in the USA.
I'm writing to thank you so much for your amazing reviews on Flepkey/Tripadvisor about your stay in May at Villa Sgrosso/Dimora di Mare.
This was a wonderful incentive for us to continue our venture keeping up our standards of quality and comfort and even improving on them where possible.
We really appreciate your kind comments.
Jim, your pictures are beautiful!
Annalisa and I enjoyed meeting you all very much and have nice memories of the great time we spent with you.
We are very looking forward to seeing you again soon.
Absolutely Stunning... Exceeded our expectations in every way!
Renata and annalisa have done a truly outstanding job in renovating this villa. The attention to detail and comfort is found everywhere. There is a tremendous amout of space around the property, with areas to relax either with the entire group or off on your own. Having the bus stop just outside of the villa was very nice, and being situated between the coastal villages was great. We were so relaxed at this villa, it was truly tough to come back to our regular routine.
Thank you Renato and annalisa! We had such a fabulous week celebrating our dear friend's 50th birthday, and your beautiful villa was the perfect setting. You and your staff took such great care of us; thank you for helping us by organizing transportation, the day trip by boat to Capri, and the wonderful dinner on the night of our arrival. The restoration of your family's home is beautiful and the location of this heavenly estate is ideal. Grazie Mille!
Best trip ever!
Our trip to Dimora di mare couldn't have been better.
The villa was even better than the pictures shown.
Renato and annalisa were wonderful hosts.
The villa has great access to all the surrounding villages in the amalfi region.
We had a group of ten and we all plan on returning.
Response from Renato and Annalisa Sgrosso - 05/14/2012
Many thanks for your beautiful words, the best price to our efforts to make our Guests' holiday the best one and let them feel in Dimora di mare ever like at their own home. Renato & Annalisa.
our best vacation ever...
Staying at the Dimora di mare villa was an amazing experience that we would highly recommend!!! From the moment you enter the villa you feel the warmth and beauty everywhere you look. You receive an outstanding orientation to the property and are welcomed by Renato and annalisa with genuine and incredible warmth and willingness to meet your every need!! Every room is beautiful, beds are outstanding/super comfortable, and bathrooms beautiful...with plenty of room and every detail considered, even special "between room" soundproofing, so you never hear anyone. There are numerous verandas/sitting/dining areas to enjoy the spectacular views, each one unique and beautiful. Also a nice area to sun and swim. You are provided housekeeping services daily and the villa is immaculate! During our stay,we scheduled meals which were prepared by Marguerita...her kind, energetic and generous "spirit" made every meal an "event" that our large group totally enjoyed, food awesome. She is such an integral part of the villa and makes your stay even more enjoyable!!! The villa is well situated to many amalfi coast towns to visit, either drivers can be arranged, or there is easy access to bus from the villa. Frankly, it was the most unforgettable vacation, and I truly miss the friends we made at this incredible villa!!

This was the best vacation of my our lives!!
From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, was such a grand experience. The Villa is so beautiful and that is an understatement! My husband and I felt like we were dreaming! The bedrooms are perfect. The views are breathtaking, and the terraces are beyond words. We enjoyed many dinners on the terrace which were absolutely amazing!( Will not tell how many lbs. I gained!) Marquerita, our housekeeper and chef was delightful! We miss her still!
We cannot say in the right words how perfect this vacation was to all of us. I would recommend this Villa to anyone wishing to visit amalfi coast! Many thanks to our hosts, who were so gracious!!

This Villa is fantastic!
This Villa is fantastic. It exceeded our expectations in every way. The owners put a lot of thought and effort into anticipating our every need, while providing a truly authentic amalfi Coast experience. The Villa's outdoor livings spaces (covered porches, terraces and grottos) are incredible; great for entertaining or quite get-aways. The house staff is exception. We would definitely come back here again!

A stunning villa in a stunning location
This is the third year which we have joined my sister and her family for our family holiday and we have had another super stay. The ambience and the views are spectacular. The pretty, light and airy bedrooms are spotless and very comfortable. The views from the villa are simply stunning. It's a shame that the villa doesn't have a pool, but our children enjoyed going out in boats and swimming in the sea.
Looking for that one special place to truly relax ? Here it is!
My wife and I, along with our two youngest university-age daughters, spent the better part of July 2011 at Dimora di mare; it was simply fabulous!
Renato and annalisa are delightful and are the warmest of hosts; we just loved them and absolutely hated to say goodbye. Marguerite, Lena, and Mario head the estate staff and they faithfully kept the villa and grounds squeaky-clean and looking...well, perfect! Even more importantly, they are fine people--very trustworthy--and we regretted having to leave them as well.
The villa itself is an absolute gem with killer views and a great location (and we're experienced amalfi Coast visitors). My only regret is not bringing more family and/or friends with us to share in our memory making...
Inexpensive? No. Worth the cost? Well, lord willing, I'm planning to become one of the Sgrosso's best customers!!

A fantastic experience in a unique and beautiful setting.
We didn't just stay at Dimora, we got married there! Our expectations were very high, and they were not only met, but absolutely exceeded. The villa itself is extremely spacious and very well appointed. Every room has its own bathroom, every room has a fantastic view. Location is very central to many towns in the amalfi coast area and is walking distance from Minori as well as amalfi (just a bit further!). The owners analisa and Renato were absolutley fantastic. Always helpful and there when you needed them, but never in your way which we really appreciated. We stayed there with 13 people in our party, and there was still room to spare! Internet access is free and reasonably fast, with wireless access near the 'living' area, and wired access in most other rooms.
On arrival, the owners had made a light dinner for our party, and even though there was 13 of us, we still had a lot of food to spare! And it was absolultely delicious! It was nice to come in and not have to worry about food/groceries right off the bat. A very thoughtful and nice gensture. The cleaning staff is thorough and super nice as well. Again, there when you need them, but never in your way.
I cannot say enough about how fantastic our experience was. From the amenities, the views, the location, the hospitality of the owners, all of it was absolutely perfect!
Best family vacation ever ever!!!
1. Most importantly annalisa and Renato are wonderful people. They made our stay extraordinary, from beginning to end.
2. The location is, of course, unsurpassed. Parking for 2 cars is tricky but doable. People on the Drive were patient as we pulled in and out.
3. The villa is spotless and is kept that way. Each room is beautifully furnished and overlooks the ocean. If you want to cook all equipment is there and user friendly. The bathrooms are all new. The beds are perfect.
4. yes it's 100 steps to the water but once you are there its easy to swim to a beach or just lounge on the chairs and watch the waves and the boats go by.
5. It is an easy 15 minute walk into amalfi. Not good for little kids to walk on the road, but we did it with 9 year olds and it was fine.
We found everything to be exactly as promised. Our stay with Renato and annalisa could not have been better. Should we decide to revisit the area in the future, we will definitely return to Dimora di mare. It is lovely. And so are Renato and annalisa.
