This is a secluded little place with amazing views over the coast. A short taxi or bus ride away from Positano, this place gives access to the best of both worlds. The staff couldn't be friendlier and more accommodating. We only stayed for one night but had our friends come to visit and spend the day at the pool with...

Il Frantoio is perfectly located in the middle of the Vettica Maggiore section of Praiano. Walk down the steps from the Villa to get the bus to Amalfi, Positano, Sorrento, or any place in Praiano, or to visit the conveniently located alimentari. You can walk to the best restaurants in the area, and you have easy access to wonderful hikes,...

The B&B has an amazing view, pool, and villa. The amenities were high end and the breakfast was delicious. Unfortunately the room is highly sought after and I only stayed for a short stay here. I wish I could've stayed longer. The stairs maybe a downfall to those not prepared for it, but greatly adds to the seclusion and comfort...

Stayed here for 3 nights with a group of friends. We had a brilliant time, the villa is really lovely and has everything you need for a relaxing stay. 6 of us shared a 2 bedroom spacious apartment and a twin room. We enjoyed relaxing by the pool (towels supplied) with a few drinks from the honesty bar and taking...

We decided to stay at Villa Frantoio as our first stop on a 10 day Italian trip and we were not disappointed at all! We were met by Giulio on his scooter in the evening when we got ourselves slightly lost, and from then on we experienced nothing but politeness and great hospitality during our stay. From advice on what...

We've just got back from five restful days staying in Il Frantoio, and to answer the title question, in the Junior Suite we had, you're buying the VIEW, the little grass 'lawn', the covered terrace, and the neat little kitchen, breakfast, and quiet. The thing to remember is it's not a hotel, it's a B and B. This was the...

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...

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...
