About Frank Lerchenmueller

I am a retired executive, love nature and outdoor activities, traveling, reading, archeology

Frank Lerchenmueller purchased this villa in 2003

Why Frank Lerchenmueller chose Amalfi Coast

We choose the villa, as it has everything we were looking for:

Direct access to the sea, parking, pool. A lot of room to live and enjoy inside and outside. Furnished like an Italian family home and not like a typical vacation home, with a lot of art.

What makes this villa unique

Spectacular view to the ocean from all rooms and from the large terraces.

Unique rock corridor.

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.

Stunning Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic family holiday at Villa La Modonnia. The standard of the accommodation was excellent. The location and views were stunning. Whilst the Amalfi coast is a beautiful place, the family didn't want to leave the villa as it was so perfect. It is however worth tearing yourself away from the villa at least once and take a boat trip along the coast as you can really then appreciate the beauty of the area.

Really Beautiful Villa in Stunning Location

  • 5 of 5

All the great reviews are thoroughly deserved. The villa is beautiful - stunning interior hallway with the rock face forming the wall. It is equipped with everything you could need. The location is just perfect, with amazing views from the various terraces . Because we stayed over the Christmas period, we were not able to take full advantage; I can only imagine what it must be like to have a boat come and collect you from the steps below the villa and take you (at no cost!) to one of the fabulous restaurants in the area.

But what makes a stay here even more special is Frank and his wonderful friends in Praiano. Frank was extremely helpful and flexible even though I booked at short notice and Luca and his parents who run a small shop in the village are so obliging and will deliver food & drinks to the house whenever you need them, as well as giving all kinds of advice and help.

Staying at Villa Madonnina is a truly special experience. I am grateful to Frank for giving us the opportunity to stay there.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults found this villa to be most accommodating with three ensuite bedrooms, lots of gathering spots inside and out. The exterior layout provided amazing views with a seemingly "private cove" that changed its features everyday with the weather. The steps leading to the bottom are so well thought out. It was such a pleasure to be able to view such beauty everyday. Location was great with lots of hiking should one wish. The walk to the town of praiano was easy. Got lucky with several great restaurants in close proximity. The goats that live in the cliffs by the property were a nice surprise as well. We enjoyed watching them as we had our breakfast outside amongst the beautifully tended flowers. We loved it!

The Villa la Madonnina is situated in a bay close to Praiano in the core of the most beautiful part of the Amalfitana between Amalfi and Positano.

Enjoy the pool and the direct access to the ocean. Perfectly located for excursions to the famous places like Amalfi, Positano, Ravello, Sorrent, Capri, Pompei, Paestum , Naples and the Vesuvius.

A unique combination of characteristics makes Villa la Madonnina the perfect place for a vacation. It has an enchanted environment, that will make your dream vacation come true with lasting memories.

The main living/dining room is furnished in the same colourful, eclectic style that characterizes the rest of the house. The two big vases, original oil paintings and ceramic tiles on the floor give you an immediate feeling of being in an Italian home. The antique dining table can accommodate 12 people for a nice meal. For an after dinner drink and a nice talk you may want to sit down in the comfortable sitting area fitted with sofas from Gervasoni - a famous Italian design brand. See and -if windows are open - hear the ocean from your seat. You can also play a round of cards or other games at the game table. Decks of cards and some games like chess, backgammon and others you find in the villa. If you have guests you can use the game table to accommodate more people for a meal. A rest room is adjacent to the social area. In front of the living room is the roofed loggia, which leads to the main terrace.
