Where to begin? Villa Frescura was everything we could have hoped for and more
Where to begin? Villa Frescura was everything we could have hoped for and more. The views were fantastic from every vantage point and the terrace was well-used and enjoyed every day and evening of our stay. The house was very clean, beautifully and comfortably furnished and well-equipped. This house was perfect for our party of two couples, with lots of light and room to spread out.
Praiano is a delightful town and less touristy than Positano or Amalfi. We would absolutely return to Praiano and Villa Frescura.
Summer In Italy's web site was easy to use, informative and accurate. The travel information included there was very helpful in planning for private car and driver and other activities. Luca and Andrea made the booking process simple and responded quickly to any queries. I highly recommend Summer In Italy and will use them again.
The villa was wonderful and location was great!
This location was wonderful. Walking distance to beaches and town. The villa was beautiful, but beds were pretty hard! Be prepared to climb lots of stairs but you'll get plenty of exercise. People were all friendly and mostly all spoke English. Grocery store right down the street had everything we needed! All in all it was a wonderful vacation!!
Villa Frescura was more beautiful than the pictures
Villa Frescura was more beautiful than the pictures. Everything about it was perfect. The villa was equipped with everything we needed for cooking meals. After hiking/touring all day we were so happy to return to the villa where we could unwind and enjoy ourselves.
We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay than Praiano. It was quiet, people were very friendly and helpful. No tour buses stopped so there weren't tons of people wandering around. The tourist that were around we like us, renting a place, and doing day trips. You had the chance to really feel like you were living the daily life in Italy.
The landlord lived next door, charming man that spoke very little English but was always around if we needed something. The caretaker, Peppino, couldn't have been more helpful and always available. He even came over one night and made us dinner! We enjoyed getting to know you and hope that we can return and stay in the same villa some time. Staying in your villa was a highlight of our trip! Thank you!
Summer In Italy is the way to go to find a rental. They are quick responding to any question or concerns you have. Very efficient and professional but gave you the feeling like they were your friends and wanted you to have the best experience possible. I've recommended them to others thinking about traveling in Italy. I give them 5 stars plus! Thank you for giving us a wonderful time in Italy!

Fabulous location for views, transport and local shop
Fabulous location for views, transport and local shop. Lovely area outside to have meals and of course the big sun balcony overlooking the sea. Fabulous.
Everything you could need for a wonderful relaxing holiday. Loved every minute of our stay.
Absolutely loved Villa Frescura, that we shared with another couple
Absolutely loved Villa Frescura, that we shared with another couple.
Beautifully appointed, well equipped kitchen. Great terrace, enjoyed sitting under the olive tree having a cocktail and nibbles in the late afternoon. Fantastic view. Bedrooms very roomy, we switched at end of 1st week and both were good.
Even if Raffaele [the owner] doesn't speak English and we don’t speak Italian we were able to communicate to some extent. He is a very nice gentleman.
Mr. Peppino [the property manager] was very helpful. He arranged a boat trip to Capri for us and also recommended markets and restaurants, all good.
Villa Frescura is a first class property, very beautiful and well maintained. We think one of the best in the area.
We found the service of Summer In Italy top notch. Questions we had prior to leaving were always answered very promptly. Would recommend their service.
