We received an absolutely lovely welcome from this small, family-run place. Great spacious family room in this delightful town. Plenty to enjoy about this place. Huge (if not that fabulous!) breakfasts, but it's all supplied with love!

We had a really good experience at Il Frantoio, and Giulio and all the staff were excepcional, nice and large room with a stunning view. Location is good with a car, but as in all Positano/Praiano, its a little dificult to find, but once more the staff will help you to get ther by whattsapp!! I'd reallu come back! Grazie...

We stayed for three nights and it wasn't long enough! This place is a little gem with breathtaking views. Room was great, daily breakfast was delicious and is only a short bus ride to Positano. Great local restaurants within walking distance. Highly recommend!

Loved our few days here- comfortable, well located out of the chaotic mayhem of neighbouring Positano and Amalfi. Relaxed days around the pool, quiet and private rooms - just what we needed. Only tip- could do with new mattresses- bit lean and hard, but great accom otherwise. Perfect sunset viewing over the sea and a great base for exploring the...

We rented out the entire villa to house our wedding guests. Everyone loved it! The views are absolutely amazing and the pool was great to socialize. Simona was incredibly friendly and helpful, as was Domenico, the owner. This is a historic property so it has character and unique features. The only thing to consider is the amount of stairs from...

Simona at the front desk was super friendly and super helpful. The room was generous in size and unique. The general area of Amalfi is expensive. This place was at the lower end and we felt like we got really good value. The breakfast were delicious and tried to use local produce in what they served. The pool area was...

Julio, Simona and the Villa Il Frantoio (VIF) family made us feel just like family during our week long stay. We decided to have our wedding at VIF, we could not have picked better scenery and a better place. In the months leading to us actually having flip-flops on Italian ground, Julio and the VIF peeps took care of pretty...

We stayed 2 nights here and we found the stay very pleasant. Staff were attentive and nice and the property has some gorgeous views. What we did appreciate was the fact that it was quite small, not so many rooms, so a lot of the time we found ourselves alone by the pool or at breakfast. This was quite a...

We chose this location without too much prior investigation. We were lucky! This is an excellent b&b, perched 300 steps above the centre of Praiano. Welcoming, helpful and very well accoutred, it offers breathtaking views across the Amalfi Coast. The terrace pool is a welcome relief after a long day walking or sightseeing. The staff are uniformly delightful, and cannot...
