My husband and I stayed eight nights at Villa il Frantoio (VF) during the last half of September, 2015. It was our second stay. There was plenty of space in our Superior room. The bed was large and comfy. The bathroom was spacious and everything worked perfectly including lots of hot water in the shower. Everything everywhere was spotless. Bed... More

The villa is a modern, renovated property with semi-cave-like rooms which offer a pleasant, comfortable atmosphere. Pluses: +Staff - from the beautiful smile and pleasant greeting of the receptionist and the breakfast server, you feel comfortable +Breakfast - decent slection of fruits, bread,... More

Dear Wandering from Toronto, we are glad you have re-cap all pros-versus for Villa Il Frantoio. We try to make it as clear as possible when our clientele books a room at our place. Yet, it is still good someone reminds our potential guests great things we do, unique features we have and that sometimes we can have a bad... More

I can only tell good things about our stay in Villa Il Frantoio. From the very first email Domenico was very kind and willing to help. He explained how to reach Praiano and the Villa and also where to park the car, making everything much easier. The B&B is really beautiful, with a breathtaking view of Positano and at the... More

We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment. This apartment easily fits 4 adults, 1 child and 1 infant, but owners only allow 2 adults and the 2 children, so had a double bed spare and the other couple we were travelling with had to pay for another room. Apartment is nice, has beautiful views of the coast, and has a... More

Dear Janman, We are very sorry to read your non-deserved review. Lets’ start from initial point. You have never requested if you all wanted to be staying all six at villa Lilmar; we have never refused guest to stay with children as the property fits 4 adults and 2 children, fine. It is of course more costly; the more people... More

We stayed at the two bedroom apartment at the Villa called Lilmar (booking thru Airbnb). The facilities were great with lots of room, a kitchen with recent appliances, a fully stacked mini-bar (both in the house and out by the pool) and much needed air conditioning. The staff was helpful, free breakfast was included in the rate (which was nice... More

Staying here for a few days on a summer trip to Italy. Lovely hotel with great suites, garden and pool. To top that, the views are stunning. Breakfast is made with ingredients from the garden. Pool terrace is a great place to swim and lounge. I thoroughly recommend this hotel.

This locally run B&B is amazing. Praiano was the last stop on our tour down Italy and this was the perfect location to relax. The B&B is locally run and the host made the most fantastic home-grown roast tomatoes for breakfast. The sunbeds were great with a face screen- we have since tried to source these back in the UK!...

We found this accommodation to be overpriced for what you get. The pros are the views which are amazing but from some rooms obstructed by trees to the right so don't get a clear view back to Positano. The rooms were cool (had great AC) and did the job and it was nice having the front private terraces. (However the... More

Dear ehech84, We are sad to hear some negativities on our service. We are afraid but sometimes it is not easy to deal with local taxi drivers that are not economical. Yet after a talk we had with the driver, as you can confirm, he gave you a fair tariff, which for the Amalfi market is not outrageous: 30 euro... More
