First morning waking at the villa Il Frontoio … It feels like waking up at a best friend’s home- oh, wait… I am. And, to my good fortune, this isn’t my first time either. But it’s often the same scene, with Julio and Simona waiting at the top of the stairs with their soft morning salutations and almost immediately my... More

I had the pleasure of staying at Villa Il Frantoio while visiting the Amalfi Coast this April and am still reveling in how great of a choice that was. While I'm happy that we stayed in Praiano over Positano or Amalfi (both much more crowded), I'm especially glad that we chose Villa Il Frantoio. I'm not sure we could have... More

Our family, 3 adults and 1 child, just returned from our stay. The 2 bedroom apartment was well equipped with a kitchen, dining table, 2 full bathrooms and 2 large and comfortable beds. The view is worth a million dollars, especially a sunset. We took advantage of our private large terrance and relaxed with snacks and wine. It was a... More

Dear Shaydc, we were surprised on how you and your family were so brave to visit Praiano and the Amalfi Coast during winter. You deserve a golden badge! We were so happy to read your comments on our Villa and of my brother Giulio's great care over your stay. We wish to have you as our guests again in the... More

Location - Villa Il Frantoio is situated atop the hillside of Praiano on the Amalfi Coast and has incredible views of Positano and well as the island of Capri in the distance! We absolutely loved staying in Praiano because it is far less touristy than the neighboring cities of Positano and Amalfi, and therefore offers a bit more serenity. In... More

My husband and I just returned from our stay at the Villa Il Frantoio and we can't say enough wonderful things about it. Far from the crowds of Positano but close enough that you can pop over and get the idea of it, Praiano and the Villa il Frantoio are the perfect destination for those seeking to not share their...

If you are searching for a relaxing location with fantastic service and amenities look no further. Julio and his staff certainly made our stay on the Amalfi coast a memorable one. The villa itself is well situated providing great views overlooking the Mediterranean. A 'few' stairs (200+) from the main street where local transportation is available and local shops to... More

My friend and I booked the 2 bedroom house so we could have our own rooms. What a delightful surprise when we arrived to also have our own bathrooms, a kitchen and sitting/dining room as well as our own private terrace with the most fabulous view over the sea. It took our breath away! The owners and staff were incredibly... More

What a nice place! A wine for welcome, Limoncello shots waiting in our room... Our room (number 3) was simple but charming with nice details. Everything was very new and clean. Highlight: The terrace and a small garden facing the sea. The smell of lavender is everywhere... Breakfast is in a small room, half indoor, half outdoor with seaview. Small... More

We returned to Villa Il Frantoio for our second stay recently and can't praise it enough. From the friendly, can't do enough for staff, the rooms with incredible views, the pool WOW to the incredible breakfast.

My husband and I recently spent 4 nights at Villa Il Frantoio and we absolutely LOVED our stay! The staff greeted us with an ice cold beer after our climb up the stairs (which trust me, is worth it for the view). From that moment on we felt welcomed and comfortable. The rooms are spacious, clean and have a breathtaking... More
