Nice Views of the Amalfi Coast!

  • 4 of 5

First of all, I must say that I am blessed to have been able to visit the Amalfi Coast with my best friends. It was such an amazing experience and beautiful place.

Anyway, while planning my visit many moons ago, my friend and I looked for houses and hotels on various websites and ultimately chose this location on VRBO due to the size, the more modern aesthetic, the cost compared to other villas in the vicinty, proximity to other towns and it being away from the super touristy areas. Also, the positive reviews from other guests helped with my decision.

Pros:

1.The manager of the residence, Norman, was quite nice, responsive and knowledgeable about the area. He answered all of my emails within 24 hours which I appreciated. He helped answer all my silly / Type A questions and provided me with comfort in choosing this villa.

2. Nicely sized; 3 large bedrooms and 3 nicely sized bathrooms and a large kitchen

3. Great views of the water and landscape

4. Allowed us to check-in an hour early which was much appreciated.

5. Within [easy] walking distance (about a 3 min walk down the steps) from La Moressa restaurant and a local grocery store, which we went to buy beer, wine, cheese and freshly cut prosciutto for the casale. Delish!

6. TV / WIFI

7. Nicely working A/C.

Cons:

1. The bathrooms were clean, but the bathroom by the upstairs bedroom had mold all over the shower, which is tiny, and the shower water pressure was pretty scarce. The shower pan flooded every time it was used and some water would leak out onto the floor. Also, the towel rack was broken and not put back in place. :-/

2. The mattresses on all the beds were pretty bad. They were like thin form mattresses with springs in them. Collectively, this was everyone's biggest complaint. The pillows were not that great either, but they were doable.

3. The garden / yard was unkempt. Lots of ants (but nothing you can do about that)

4. Older plug outlets. Differ from what you will find in the more modern hotels / restaurants in the area..

5.The STEPS! OMG!! I did not realize how many stairs there are in Praiano. Holy moly! My whole body is sore. LOL This is not really a complaint about the house specifically, but to get to all the popular restaurants in Praiano, it is about a 20 min walk of pure STAIRS and inclines.

Overall, we had a good stay. The house is spacious and perfect for couples and friends. Do not bring kids to the Amalfi Coast. A horrible place for strollers and anyone under 10.

Owner's Response: Hi Tanya We thank you for your kind review and are pleased that you enjoyed your holidays here at Casale Fralisa and at the Amalfi Coast. We are glad that you have been satisfied with our staffs help during your stay and thank you for informing us about some issues at the house. We are sorry for the mold, all the houses in Praiano are in the rock and therefore it is unavoidable to have some issues. By keeping the window closed in the bathroom or the ventilator switched off during the showers, you end up having mold. Generally our housekeeping are very careful to clean and therefore to minimize the possible inconvenience. The garden. Fumigation is made every year and several times a year. Praiano is on the sea and full of greenery. On the humid days the ants unfortunately cannot be completely avoided (in the garden above all), because all around the coast the farmers avoid to choose strong pesticides in order to protect the gardens. In any case, when our customers make us aware of the problem during their stay, we intervene with appropriate products to keep the problem to a minimum. Please apologize for the inconvenice caused. We have been very glad to meet and host you here at Casale Fralisa and hope to see you soon again and we finally invite all families to continue to choose the Amalfi Coast for their kids - of all the ages, as maybe, it is one of the last still quiet and safe place in the world! .

Charming villa

  • 5 of 5

Casale Fralisa is a charming villa in Praiano. The pictures provide an accurate description of the property - we were not disappointed. The balconies and the garden area, all with views of the sea, are wonderful The layout on three floors worked well for us, a family of six. The property was very clean and well equipped.

As noted in the description, there are 70-80 steps from the street level to the villa. Fortunately, Norman from SMAAC met us at our parking spot and had arranged for our luggage to be carried to the villa. Thank you, Norman, for all your help, not only with the luggage, but also with making restaurant reservations. As another reviewer noted, Norman was readily accessible by phone.

On Norman's advice, we left our car (a small van) in the parking spot, rather than use it to navigate the narrow winding roads of the Amalfi Coast. Fortunately, there is a bus stop just a short walk from the villa. We took the local Praiano-Positano bus (rather than the more crowded SITA bus) to Positano on several occasions. We also took the bus to Positano, then the ferry between Positano and Amalfi, although we were advised that we could also get a water taxi from Praiano to Amalfi.

One of the benefits of staying in Praiano, rather than Positano or Amalfi, is that it is much less crowded than either of those towns. Nevertheless, since Praiano does not have ferries, consideration should be given to the logistics of getting from Praiano to other towns on the Amalfi Coast.

A grocery store (Tutto per Tutti) and a nice restaurant (La Moressa) are also a short walk from the villa.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Casale Fralisa.

The charm and views from the Villa are wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

The charm and views from the Villa are just wonderful! From the moment you step onto the property you were overcome by the beauty of the view of the Mediterranean Sea. The Villa is nestled into the cliffs alongside locals and other villa rentals. There are approximately 70 steps to the Villa but we looked at it as a way to work off all the wonderful food along Amalfi coast! There is a wonderful grocery store that sells everything including wine and beer very close to the Villa. Also a bus stop and an amazing restaurant la Moressa with beautiful views serving breakfast lunch and dinner until 11pm. We took the bus often because it is so economical €1.7 however if we were in a hurry or tired we called a cab just be expected to pay approximately €70 to either Amalfi or Positano. The proximity of the Villa makes traveling to many places on the coast very easy. It is also nice to have a quiet place to come back to at the end of the day. With that being said there is a rooster who lives next door to the Villa! He will be sure to wake you bright and early so we found using the air conditioner helpful at night and we did not hear the noise when we did. But the rooster truly added to the charm of the place! The house is clean, rustic, well-equipped, and the layout is great for a family of four… Just be aware that the bottom two bedrooms (ground level) are joined together and one bedroom has to walk through the other to use the bathroom on that floor (or go up a flight to use main level bath. The ground level of the house has two nice size bedrooms and one full bath and also a lovely terrace with a views. The main level of the house is the kitchen, full bathroom, and living room. Beautiful terraces off every room! The upper level is the master bedroom with full bath and another wonderful and private terrace. The Villa has a washing machine and a new stainless refrigerator/freezer.

Norman from SMAAC Realty was very accessible by phone and very helpful with everything! He met us at check-in and a porter carried our luggage up to the Villa. Overall we had an amazing trip and loved our experience in Praiano staying at Casa Fralisa!!

The most beautiful terrace I've ever relaxed on!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay in Praiano at Casale Fralisa. We were 5 friends on vacation, and truly had an amazing and relaxing time in Praiano. We spent most days sun bathing on the terrace, cooling off every once in a while by the outdoor shower. The house is just a flight of stairs away from a great restaurant (La Moressa) where we had coffee every morning and dinner one night, and a market where you could get everything you need.

The best thing we did was a private boat tour for a day with La Bellavita Charter - the best way to see the coast is by boat!

We want to go back!
