Villa Il Frantoio is a bed & breakfast in Praiano, in the South of Italy, in the charming village of Vettica Maggioreis the recently restored historic Il Frantoio. The villa was once a working olive press for the local villagers and has been carefully restored to bring back the essence of a period long gone.
The bed and breakfast feature six rooms each with a special and unique character with private terraces overlooking the shimmering Mediterranean, picturesque Positano and legendary Capri. Homer’s famed isle of the Sirens(Sirenuse) also lies in what seems merely inches from your touch through your window. The architecture of the villa dates back to the 17th century and all of the romantic and dramatic details shine through today.
The bed and breakfast's private and common-space terraces are characterized by dramatic high arches and the sleeping chambers have domed roofs in the authentic style of this region. The original stone wheel and press have been kept fully intact in our grand suite as a tasteful centrepiece. Although every effort to restore it original charm and elegance have been employed, there are all the modern conveniences one would expect in a world class bed and breakfast establishment.
High-speed Internet and wireless access are juxtaposed with hand-cut stone floors—modern bathrooms look thoughancient portals out to sea and Capri. Flat screen TV’s are mounted on hand coloured plastered walls and air-conditioning is cleverly hidden from view but available for your comfort. Our three suites have kitchens. for those guests that choose to delve into the culinary treats of the region or to simply make a cup of tea in the afternoon.
Families, couples, singles, and groups large and small will call the bed and breakfast Il Frantoio their home, in our b&b in the Amalfi coast.
