The villa was wonderful and location was great!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

We had a fabulous time at Villa Frescura

  • 4 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Villa Frescura. The location and the feeling you get is just as wonderful as you imagine when you see the Amalfi coast on travel programs. The villa is ideal and is as described and met our expectations.

Praiano is also we felt a better place to stay than say Positano being less built up and crowded. We definitely made the right decision when we booked this property, in addition to the place itself the agent, the local contact in Praiano and the owner himself were all very friendly and helpful.

We felt Summer in Italy (Luca in particular) were very helpful and made the whole process of booking, getting to the Villa and checking in easy. With online booking you are always worried it may not go smoothly but we were pleased with Summer In Italy and would certainly recommend to others.

What an amazing villa to enjoy the Amalfi Coast

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing villa to enjoy the Amalfi Coast. The attention to detail was fabulous and the owner and keyholder were excellent to work with and they made us feel welcome.

The villa was every bit as beautiful and more than the pictures on-line. The terrace garden was amazing, as were all the outdoor plants. The owner's attention to detail really showed.

Our stay in Praiano and the Amalfi coast was everything and more than we had hoped for and the Villa Frescura was the start to it all!!
