“Family Stay”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

This was a wonderful place for our little family group to stay... We were two women traveling with four children. The facility was steps from the ruin and Scavi train station. Very safe, very clean and the pool was a life saver!
The hosts Guiseppe and Dominico were gracious and accommodating made us feel welcome throughout our 4 day stay.
The breakfast was excellent but the highlight was the excellent dinner served by the pool each night. Highly recommended!

We found the Location via booking.com and thought from pictures and description it would be a nice idea to stay here relatively close to the excavation site and the train station (circum vesiuviana). What we found, when ariving was a very friendly and family-like situation and our room was prepared with love for honeymoon with flowers, prosecco, strawberries:)

Especially the homemade 5dishes dinner served by Dominic (the cook) was wonderfull. We really enjoyed our stay in Villa Franca and will come back.

Situated 5 a minutes walk down a lane from the entrance to the ruins, 5 minutes walk from railway station, bars, and touristy market. Homely villa with small swimming pool and lots of sun beds to lounge around in.Run by Pepe and his wife Lorena with help from Papa. they used to run a restaurant in London Covent Garden . Lovely hosts, speak very good English and cannot do enough to make your stay enjoyable. They lend guide books, provide info on attractions, find out train and bus times for you, organise taxis and transfers if you ask, and by the way , forgot the best bit, for 12 Euros per head will cook you a mammoth dinner starters, pasta dish or 2, main course, dessert you will not bother eating anywhere else. Rooms are clean and basic, serviced every day all en suite.Some of the rooms have huge king bed, 2 bunk beds and a double sofa bed, take the family! Not grand, just homely clean and welcoming.Dont go if you want a 5 star hotel but if you want convenience for Pompeii, authentic Italian hospitality and a good base for visiting the area,this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Local railway runs right beside villa but trains don't run from 10pm to 7am so not a huge proble...

Although your first impression at arrival time might be that of a rather modest accomodation, ... you will finally conclude that VILLA FRANCA is probably the best price/quality address in Pompei, Italy. Delicious breakfast, friendly family serving you in whathever you think of, fantastic dinner, ... It's one of these locations which we've come across in Italy we're you're pointed at all things that you may do, instead of (as is often the case) all things you must not do. Further: the ideal location for visiting Pompei, Sorrento, Capri, Naples, Herculaneum. TOP !

We loved staying here with our two kids (10 and 11) in a large room with a double bed, bunk beds and a large sofa. March 2013. Nothing was too much trouble for Guiseppe, Pepe and Dominico who really seemed to want to please us. We are glad we chose to stay in on the first night and have a meal at the villa because the food was excellent and so much of it! The homemade wine was also excellent. We then stayed in every night and enjoyed more amazing meals cooked for us. Guseppe used to work in a restaurant in Covent Garden, London. A really friendly, homely place to return to after a long, hot day exploring Pompeii and surrounding attractions. You couldn't get a better place for close proximity to the ruins, train station etc but also quiet and homely place to return to. It was too cold to use the pool when we went but I imagine it would be very welcome in the summer. The wifi was good and they have books and maps you can borrow. Basically just ask and they will try to accomodate anything. Would love to return one day (if just for the food and wine!) They even gave us some bottles of wine when we left. Matt and Mel and kids, England

We are an Australian family with 3 kids and stayed a night. Our hosts Pepe and his dad we really nice, they organised a home cooked meal ready for us when we arrived in the evening. We were able to leave our car at the villa whilst we toured the Pompeii site which was walking distance. They were warm friendly and welcoming. The free internet was also very fast !

My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights this past summer. Pepe and Dominico were wonderful hosts. They made us feel right at home. Wonderful home cooking and homemade wine every evening! And lovely breakfasts with good coffee! Catered to our tastes and asked what we liked, so thoughtful. As my boyfriend is more adventurous one night they prepared him a whole fish! Pepe was very helpful with suggestions of what to do in the area aside from the ruins. We had a wonderful day trip to Positano because of his reccomendations. Excellent location right by entrance to the ruins as well as the local train! Amazing value as well. During our stay there was also a family as well as a single travellers, everyone seemed to really enjoy it as much as we did. Couldn't have asked for better accomodation, in fact one of our stand out places during our whole 10 week backpacking trip around Europe. Thank you for the excellent hospitality. We will hopefully have the pleasure of staying here again. Robyn and Nick from Canada.

Room Tip: We had the separate unit at the end and to the right of the pool, it was great.
