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 us. Giulio and his son prepared the loveliest impromptu lunch with fresh tomatoes from the garden. I would highly recommend this place for a romantic getaway but also for a considerate group of young friends. Perhaps best to pack lightly as there are steps to get to the hotel. You can arrange for someone to help you with the luggage but I felt bad seeing that knowing that our luggage was very heavy. Stayed July 2016, traveled with friends
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, including "The Path of the Gods". We stayed in the La Molazza suite, which was incredibly spacious. The room and the property was spotlessly kept and very comfortable. Giuglio was a big help with all our needs and made sure that our stay was perfect. Lia kept our room clean, attended to our breakfast needs, and did a couple of clothes washes for us as well. Giacomo helped us with the Internet and our bags, and his great puppy, Nana, was a great ambassador. Simona had great advice on bus travel and other things to do in the area. The view from our private balcony was beautiful - the Galli Islands, Positano, and Capri and the Fariglioni Rocks in the distance. A great breakfast was served on the common terrace so you would not miss the changing colors of the sea and the coastline. We would definitely return to Il Frantoio. It is a perfect alternative to busy Positano, and has everything you would need for a great stay conveniently available.
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 to this location. Very quiet and romantic place.
