The Palace Rocco, colored pink, white and gray with lateral bands, was built in 1820 by the Rocco family of Naples close to the Bourbon King of the Reign of the Two Sicilies, it is presumed for their summer holidays. Praiano, even at that time, was a tourist location.

The three houses are autonomous and independent, in the year 2014 and renovated in 2015, overlooking the beauty of the sea on the Amalfi coast and is the ideal place to spend a holiday in privacy and relaxation.
From large and comfortable house terraces or balconies, you can admire the beautiful "Saracen Tower" extending into the sea, the profile and the unmistakable characteristic promontory known as "Capo di Conca", which stands in the distance, and the color blue sea frame the fabulous view recognized by UNESCO as world heritage of humanity.

At Praia there are several restaurants and bars, beach resorts, you can rent boats for sea trips or go fishing every day with tourist fishermen. Finally, from Praiano you can make the "trekking" along the famous Path of the Gods, by yourself or with a local guide. At 200 meters from the Palace there is the bus stop, which run every hour, for internal Praiano, Positano, Amalfi, Ravello, Sorrento, etc ..

Our collaborator Luca, clerk at check-in and check-out, will help you to find a place and assist you throughout the period of stay for any tourist information.It is possible to reserve a parking space in the garage for € 15,00 per day near the house.
I’m the daughter-in-law of the owners (Milano family) and I welcome guests in our apartments located in an historical building built in 1820.
Francesca Scoppetta purchased this house in 1820
We give the apartments of the building for rent because we want to share them with tourists from all over the world.
The Villas included in the Palace Rocco, Sun Shining in Love, in love and White Moon Red Moon in Love have exceptional sea views and is very appreciated by customers in their comments. The tranquility and the location near the beach and the absence of stairs are the highlights of the apartments. Palazzo Rocco you can take buses to any destination and from Praia you can go by boat to Capri every day.
We just returned from a 2 week stay at White Moon. Everything about the stay was fantastic. White Moon is a wonderful flat with incredible views! The area is quaint and as quiet as it gets on the Coast. Francesca is efficient and wonderful to work with. Luca is awesome and will help you with anything he can. If you are fortunate enough to meet the owners who live next door, they are sweet wonderful people. You read a lot about the little grocery market up the street and its all true. It is wonderful run by very nice people! I would highly recommend this property to all!! Thanks to everyone involved in making our trip awesome!!
We stayed at the white moon in the attic for 6 nights. It is a beautiful, clean new apartment. The building also appears very new. The unit and the rooms are spacious as well it has a very large terrace. It was more impressive than the pictures to be there in person. The view from the terrace is breathtaking. We always had a rapid response to our emails when arranging the booking and request of certain details we wanted to know about. The apartment was also stocked with some essential supplies which made it easy not to have to get some of those things. Also there was a bottle of Prosecco and snacks to welcome us. Luca was our contact who met to show us to the apartment. We had to meet at the town hall (this initially was hard to find even with my GPS in my car) but we stopped and asked people who helped us find it. Even though I had google mapped it out as well. Luca was always available when we called him to take care of any questions we had. He also had made arrangements to do a boat trip to the island of Capri which was lucky because if we didn't we would have missed the chance to go because they get booked up very quickly. The place is very centrally located in Praiano. If you go out to eat make sure you try Kasai(we think it is the best restaurant in Praiano), Trattoria di Armandino, and Costa Diva. Great piazza at Che Bon on the main road. There are 2 grocery stores just up the road above the building. Would definitely return if coming back to Praiano.
Thank you for let us use your wonderful apartment.
Not having traveled to this part of Italy before I wasn't sure what to expect. Get a small car as the roads are winding and very tight along the coast road. Thankfully Francesca organised parking in the owner's garage for our stay, take it as it is essential if you want to park close by.
Palazzo Rocco is situated close to Commune de Praiano, the City Hall square, and a short walk away downhill. Luca met us on arrival and showed us to the house and garage. He also offers a grocery delivery service from the family shop, handy! There is a deposit to pay for breakages held until you leave and a visitors tax of 2 euros per night. Luca was great, he sorted the WIFI and was quick to respond to any queries.
White Moon Attic is a two-bed apartment on the top floor, a staircase leads up to it from the main door so access is 24/7, just be quiet if late! The apartment is very tastefully decorated, from the door you enter a sitting/dining room with TV. A glass door from here opens up on to the large balcony which has fabulous views over the coast line. There is a 4 seater table, 2 sun beds and 4 low recliners, it really is a lovely space and there is also a shower for freshening up and a bbq for eating in.
Both bedrooms open up on to the balcony, one is en-suite and the other has a separate bathroom again all tastefully fitted out with plenty of wardrobe space, additional blankets and pillows, plenty of towels. Air conditioning runs throughout and the owner had thoughtfully provided an electric plug-in mosquito repellent device plus there is a hair dryer, washing machine, ironing board, iron, mop, bucket, pegs and even a sewing kit. Fresh bedding and towels are provided weekly, although with the washer you do have the option of a more regular freshen up if so inclined!
The kitchen is well equipped although a little tight on space, there are plenty of plates, dishes, mugs, glasses and cutlery and cooking utensils and pans. The owner also left us some dishwasher tablets and washing-up liquid. In one corner is a fridge/freezer with ice cube makers and behind it a toaster and spare fold-up table. Under the sink is a selection of recycling bins and instruction on there disposal provided.
We had a fab vacation, Praiano is a great low key base just be aware of the steep hills and steps, other than that highly recommended. If only there was a pool! If anyone is planning to visit and wants more info I am happy to advise.
Thanks to Francesca and Luca xxxx
The property is well situated in Praiano within walking distance of a grocery store, many restaurants and the beach. The view from the deck is breathtaking as it overlooks the Amalfi coastline. The property feels new, is clean and functional. The bathrooms and kitchen have recently been updated with modern appliances and fixtures. The new doors and windows allow for easy access to the deck and keep the apartment cool when closed and the air conditioner is running.
My wife and I spent one week in the White Moon in Love and one week in Sun Shining. Both units are fabulous. Appliances are up scale and all worked perfectly. Both units are spacious, in first class condition, in a great location, absolutely spotless, and have everything you might need. Bathrooms and kitchens are modern and spacious.
White Moon has the best view and we loved the terrace. It is wide and offers great views. The apartment is upstairs but all on one level. For two to four people this would be my first choice. Sun Shining has a large terrace but the view is not quite as good as White Moon and it is not on one level, however it is much larger and more richly appointed. It would be good for a larger group or if you need to entertain.
Praiano is a great location. You are right in the middle of all the points of interest. You are a short distance to Amalfi, Positano, and boats to Capri. Praiano is not as congested and noisy as Positano or Amalfi. There are plenty of restaurants and grocery stores within easy walking distance. The whole Amalfi Coast is on the cliff's edge. Be aware that if stairs and climbs are not for you, then you might choose somewhere else. We drove a car and chose to pay 15 euros for private parking and we were glad to have it. If you don't choose to do that, park your car and leave it. Take the bus. Parking is possible in parking decks in Amalfi, Sorrento, and Naples but totally impossible in Positano. Driving the Amalfi Coast is challenging with many buses and extremely narrow roads but with breathtaking views. Luca was sent to help us get settled. He helped us with our luggage, made good recommendations for restaurants, helped us situate the car, and gave a thorough briefing on the apartments.
I have stayed in many vacation apartments and this was by far the best. I would highly recommend either of these units. Have a great time on the Amalfi Coast.
The villa is beautiful! We felt like we were staying in a Palace! The house has been totally remodeled and every room was done with exquisite taste! Luca was very helpful in arranging taxis and dining reservations. He took care of our every need! Praiano is a sweet town with a "local" vibe! We experienced the best food and drink of our whole trip here! The beach is a short walk away and absolutely lovely! I can't say enough great things about this villa, Luca and Praiano! We are a family of 5 (3 college age children) and we were very comfortable! I can't wait to return!
The ancient Palace Rocco is accessed through a pedestrian street, without stairs, about 200 meters from the the Municipality of Praiano. At about 200 meters from the house are available many useful services such as ATMs, restaurants, a supermarket and the bus stop to Positano, Amalfi, Ravello, Sorrento and other destinations.
The beach and the the quaint seaside village "La Praia", with its restaurants and bars, can be reached on foot in ten minutes, with a distance of approximately 500 meters. At the Praia Beach you can rent boats, do any excursion by sea and mainly for "Capri". Also nearby is the famous nightclub “Africana” open from June to September. Praiano is located in the "Heart of the Amalfi Coast" to which you can easily reach Positano, Amalfi, Ravello, Capri, Ischia, Pompeii and many other tourist sites.
