Absolutely stunning property!!

  • 5 of 5

Pallazo Rocco and Villa Sunshining in Love is absolutely stunning! We stayed there while on a family vacation through Italy and it was by far the most impressive property compared to others we rented in Venice and Florence. It gleams with pride of ownership. Everything from the furniture, decorations, terrace, and condition of the property has been done first class. We spent the majority of our time on the terrace because it was absolutely breathtaking with the views of the sea and the arrangement of the outdoor seating area. Seriously, the pictures of the property don't do it justice. We knew when we reserved the property it was going to be very nice, but it absolutely exceeded our expectations. We had 6 adults and 4 children with us and there was ample room for everyone. Grocery stores and shops were just a few minute walk from the villa. There is a great beach where you can rent sun chairs and umbrellas just a few minute walk down the stairs. You can also jump on boats at that beach to Capri, Positano and Amalfi. If you're looking for a relaxing beach vacation at a stunning property, book this one. We will definitely be coming back. Thank you for everything, Francesca! Everything about our experience with you and the property was perfecto!

Impossible to describe how wonderful this villa is . Definitely not for anyone with mobility issues (this goes without saying about the Amalfi coast in general lol!). Incredibly beautiful accommodation for families, four couples, a girls getaway, whatever! Bellisimo

Luxurious and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We lived staying here. The palace is beautiful and the patio offers gorgeous views and a wonderful retreat. Luca was wonderful and helpful and we loved the town of Praiano. It was close enough to the Positano and the beaches but had a small town/local peersonality with wonderful resteraunts and a great grocery store. Would highly recommend Praiano and the Rocco Palace!

We returned a week ago from a magical 3 weeks in Italy. We spent 10 days of our vacation in Palace Rocco it was perfect. We stayed in the main section of the palace which had plenty of room for the six of us. The location is close to the store, beaches and restaurants. Easy access to public transportation. Make sure you bring comfortable shoes...lots of walking. After eating all the amazing food in Italy the walking was much needed. Luca made the check in and out very easy. Chef Mario cooked for us one night at the palace the meal was's a must do. I highly recommend the restaurant on the stairs one of our favorites. Look forward to coming back in the future.

What a find! Palace Rocco exceeded our expectations. Truely stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Sunshining was amazing. From the booking process with Francesca who was fast to respond and great answering our questions to the arrival and departure process with Mr Luca staying here was seamless and easy. After visiting other towns along the coast I was so pleased we chose Praiano. The quiet village feel with amazing views from every window to the terrace, great location to a small supermarket, restaurants and bus stop and a short walk to the beach couldn't ask for more. Thank you for a spotlessly clean, updated apartment with everything provided. The porterage was a nice touch and assistance with day tours. Will definately recommend to others.. Perfect in everyway!

Ps. Bring flat shoes and be prepared for the hills and steps in Praiano.
