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.

Our stay at Palace Rocco, Sunshine in Love (4 bedrooms) was amazing. The villa was beautiful and spacious, exactly as it appears in the pictures. The outdoor patio is huge with very comfortable furniture to lounge on and enjoy the spectacular view. The kitchen is well equipped and easily accessible from the patio for refills of limoncello spritzers. The bedrooms are comfortable and the views are amazing. I so enjoyed lying in bed at night watching the moon reflect on the water. The victorian furniture in the living was not comfortable, but we didn’t really care because we spent all our time on the patio. Francesca was helpful and very responsive to our questions. She provided the name of a company to transport us from Rome to Priano. She arranged for Chef Mario come in and cook a dinner for us at a very reasonable price. I highly recommend this experience. Luca met us upon arrival and was very helpful for directions to the grocery store etc. Knowing that we would be tired from traveling, he had snacks and a bottle of prosecco chilling for us; a really nice touch. Luca also made arrangements for a boating day trip to Capri. Boating to the island was really fun. The chaos of busses, scooters, and way too many tourists in Capri, not so much. I am so glad we picked Praiano. There are many good restaurants. It’s a good spot for day trips to other places and tucked away from all the tourists. Our week at Palace Rocco was fantastico!

Lovely apartment, home base in Amalfi coast!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful apartment for my family of 6 adults. Julia met us, who spoke perfect English and gave us her mobile phone for any questions. Snacks were provided when we checked in. The place was extremely clean. The views from the veranda and bedrooms were wonderful. There were porters waiting when we arrived to bring our luggage down the several ramps and about 15 stairs. Once we figured out the terrain, this was a perfect home base for us. The SITA busses were convenient and economical. The stop #10, which was 97 steps down from the house, was convenient, but if steps are a problem, the better stop for getting off the bus was #9 where the walk up the road was less steep and then the ramp and stairs down were easier. The grocery store was up many stairs as well. The kitchen was well equipped and there was dishwasher detergent and dish liquid provided as well as salt and pepper and a couple of other spices and olive oil. The wifi worked well except in the one bedroom (out of four) which was on the first floor (the others were on the second floor). It was great to have a washer and dryer (liquid detergent was provided) and a safe. The beds were comfortable, although hard. The sitting area/living room would be greatly improved with more comfortable furniture instead of the Victorian style chairs and divan. Because of the chilly weather, we did not have a chance to sit outside on the veranda which was lovely. Julia had the porters return when we needed to depart. Overall, it was a great stay!!!

Owner's Response: Ciao Nancy thanks for the great review, too bad that you did not find the good weather. With the sun everything changes and everything becomes even more beautiful. Surely you have given useful information for future clients of Palazzo Rocco and we are grateful for this. Having a 5 star rating with so much rain and cold was really kind of you. We hope to see you in the future at Palazzo Rocco possibly in spring or autumn which are the best seasons for both the weather and because it is less crowded with tourists. Greetings from the staff of Palazzo Rocco, Francesca, Giulia and Luca.

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!

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!
