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

We would love to get back to Frantoio,even though we were there only 3 weeks ago. Our next stay will definitely be longer. Firstly Praino is quieter than Positano or Amalfi,but with enough restruants to keep you happy. Buses are relatively frequent to other areas. We were upgraded to the junior suite which I think would be the best room... More

Villa Frantoio was everything we wanted when booking a place to stay in the Amalfi Coast. It provided the relaxation we were looking for while still have great access to hiking and transportation into Positano. To the staff THANK YOU for making us feel so welcome, we can't wait to return next summer, and to stay for much longer than... More

We stayed two nights at Villa il Frantoio in Olivaio Room, which has a big balcony with a view on the sea and from where you can see Positano on your right side. The room is elegant and the bathroom is very wide, modern. Authentic breakfast with vegetables and fruits from their own garden, you can see Julio in the... More
