This B&B suited our purposes. We wanted to soak in the Amalfi coast before the weather became very warm. Our aim was to bum around Ravello or Amalfi and hike a bit. We stayed for six nights.
The rooms were in great condition and that's saying a lot considering that water damage wreaks havoc on older structures in the Mediterranean (we know from experience that a property such as Me Fra needs constant upkeep). The windows are new and have shutters for privacy.
Sonia and Simone keep the place absolutely spotless and in ship shape condition.
The children loved the sweet baked items, cereal, yogurt and fruit on offer for breakfast but the adults in our group wanted to take out a frying pan and scramble some eggs for ourselves. This isn't a complaint so much as an awareness of cultural differences (I was warned that Italians eat sweet things for breakfast but living the reality was a bit much to take). Ultimately we liked choosing our own tomatoes and strawberries from the produce store a short walk away.
We would recommend the view and rhe seafood risotto from the hotel Rufolo in Ravello. Also, the beachside restaurant in Amalfi has one, truly homemade pasta. Scampi or fresh mozzarella was delicious everywhere. Fish was hit or miss. Avoid ordering beef or lamb in this part of Italy. The guys were disappointed in that respect.
We weren't looking to swim so early in the season but did notice that the beach in Atrani isn't groomed whereas one hardy soul splashed the stretch in Amalfi (which can be reached via pedestrian tunnel -- echoey fun for kids).
Our favorite hike was up to the Torre, via Amalfi. You could stand in the ruins, among the butterflies and see Atrani, Amalfi and Ravello.
