Gracious living

  • 5 of 5

It has been three years since we stayed in this remarkable villa and our time there continues to resonate with each of us as one of the most wonderful trips in our lifetimes.

We were just 50, my mother 75 and our daughters 18 and 12.

Everyone in the area knows the Villa and Frank. All are delighted to extend their best hospitality.

There is the sea, the fisherman, the seafood, the wine, the art, the lemons, the walks. Ok, I may have burnt out the clutch of the rental car on my 106th attempt to back up the driveway, but in all other ways our time was charmed and casually glamorous.

Frank is a kind and caring host, calling us on New Year's Eve to wish us the best. We then watched fantastic fireworks from the terrace in our pajamas and shot proseco corks over into the sea.

We ate delicious meals at the tiny waterside restaurant in Praiano, we shopped in Positano and cooked gorgeous meals for ourselves with the gatherings of the day.

Even now, even tonight, we prefer to eat every meal out of dishes we bought just up the road.

Thank you, Frank. Your beautiful home lives on in our hearts and memories. We wish you and yours all the very best today and every day.

(We visited over New Years 2014)

The VERY best on the Amalfi Coast and maybe all of Italy

  • 5 of 5

Three couples, all celebrating our 50th wedding anniversaries spent a delightful week in this magnificent villa perched high above the sea on a secluded cliff. It is impossible to describe all the amenities this home provided: gorgeous views of the sea and nearby Furore, tranquil relaxing moments on one of the three patios, breakfast on the covered porch adjacent to the dining room, easy access to all the coast area for dinner and our daytime adventures. Often we chose to stay in for the evening just to enjoy the beautiful sunsets and watch the sea crash against the rock cliffs. Teresa prepared for us a fabulous fish dinner and we appreciated listening to her nephew read from Dante in Italian. We had traveled to the Amalfi coast twice before, but this home was an experience to never be forgotten. Special memories- and worth every cent.

Wonderful and unique Amalfi villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect week in this villa at the end of August, wonderful villa with great access direct to the sea as well as a great pool.

Highly recommend asking Teresa to cook for you, they were the best 2 meals of our entire stay!

Everything was clean and in good order with the outdoor areas also cleaned every day of our stay.

Especially liked Il Pirata restaurant close by, as well as our day trip in Ravello, not to be missed.

Can't wait to return.

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the second half of our two week vacation in Italy in Villa La Madonnina. Look no further! The villa is just as portrayed in the pictures. We had 4 adults and 2 children in our party & the accommodations were perfect. The views are unbelievable! The location is perfect for day trips to the neighboring towns. Many of the restaurants were closed when we were there, but the all of the ones we visited were outstanding. Frank gives excellent recommendations and Luca (son of the local grocer) is happy to give suggestions also. We purchased local seafood and made dinner ourselves in the villa. The kitchen is well equipped and the supply of local wine is great too! Teresa keeps the villa spotless! You will not be disappointed with this beautiful villa. Get in touch with Frank today!

AMAZING! You wont be disappointed

  • 5 of 5

Stop looking at other places and contact Dr. Frank to book Villa La Madonnina now. We stayed here with our two pre-teen boys for two weeks this July. It was an amazing experience. The Villa is gorgeous with a lot of space to spread out and a full kitchen. The rooms each have their own bath and everything is very nice. Villa is extremely well maintained and Teresa keeps it tidy and clean. The landscaping is beautiful. And the views are breath taking. Dr. Frank was wonderful to work with and very responsive to any question. He has prepared a web site and a very nice booklet with information on the Villa, the area, restaurant suggestions, walks to take. Listen to him and take all of his suggestions. Order groceries ahead of time. Rent a scooter. Have Teresa cook meals for you. Take the hikes he suggests. Follow his Pilates routine. Ask him questions about the area. Really! He knows how to have a great vacation. The Villa's location is ideal. Between Positano and Amalfi, near the Marina with great restaurants. The pool is nice and the grotto to the sea is great for swimming and snorkeling. This really is a gorgeous, luxurious, convenient Villa. We will definitely return. Thank you Dr. Frank, Teresa and Luigi for a wonderful vacation! (And we loved seeing the goats on the hillside!)

Our Second Trip just as good as the first.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Villa la Madonnina on the Amalfi coast.

Perfect location away from the crowds but yet a close walk [ or boat ride] to restaurants and the local township.

The owner and all of his contacts are most helpful and made our stay so relaxing.

We have recommended this Villa to 2 others couples and they also had a wonderful stay.

Teresa cooks a fantastic meal [ Life is made of memories]

We will be back.
