My wife and I stayed here for five nights the last week of September The rooms are clean and a perfect size. Hospitality, service, quality and value were all perfect and we would definitely stay here again. The steps would be difficult for someone who cannot carry bags up and down fifty steep steps. It's a shame because this is... More

Everything was perfect, we loved every second of our stay. We can't think of anything that could be better. Domenico and all the other staff were all very friendly and great hosts. The view and sunset from our private balcony was absolutely stunning. The breakfast was excellent. When my girlfriend got bitten by mosquitos, Domenico went to the beautiful garden... More

We stayed at this lovely B&B for five nights in early September and were very happy with our choice. Praiano is a good base (if there is such a thing given the traffic along the entire Amalfi coast!) for exploring the coast, free parking was not too much of a problem uphill from our accommodation and the town is served...

The owner is a gentleman and welcomed us in this amazingly run hotel. He was proud to show us the fruit, veg, cheese and yogurt they make at the hotel. All the staff were charming, helpful and friendly, while at the same time allowing guests to move around freely and there was a good balance of privacy and friendliness. The... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Villa. Julio and Simona were very accommodating and had a quiet charm that reflected the overall feel at the villa. The location provides a lovely view of the water and Positano. It is very close to the restaurants and the small centre of town. You need to be prepared to climb the steps, but... More

We stayed for 4 nights in the Villa....it was just perfect...Fabulous location , amazing views, well equipped villa with plenty of space... 2 large bedrms and bathrooms.... Very quiet ...great for long sleep ins. Loved the sundried tomatoes for breakfast! Praiano is quieter than Positano and we did not mind the 207 steps from the road to the Villa!

This is the place to stay in Praiano if you are not afraid of a few extra stairs. The host is lovely, the rooms are all very nice with stunning views, balconies or terraces and the breakfast is delicious. The pool is small, but very nice and very relaxing. This is just perfect!

Amazing view from the rooms, 5-star breakfast with homemade items, very friendly and helpful management who can recommend you things to do. Overall praiano is a nice place to stay on the coast and much less crowded than Amalfi. The suite has a medieval olive press - it's like a museum. The shower is also amazing.

We stayed for 6 nights at the Villa il Frantoio at the end of June as part of our honeymoon which also consisted of 3 nigths in Rome and 4 in Capri. Our time here was by far the nicest of our Italy experience. During our stay we had the extremely good fortune of residing in the Molazza Suite, a... More

My husband and I stayed here for four nights in June at the end of a hectic five week tour around Europe and it was exactly what we needed. It was just wonderful in every respect: the room (Junior Suite), the views from our terrace, breakfast, pool area, staff and location. Yes lots of steps but this is the same... More
