Photos and Description of this Praiano holiday villa

Palazzo Rocco was built in 1820 – we rent 3 houses in the centre of Praiano

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.

In the Palace Rocco there are three apartments: 1) Villa Sun Shining in Love; 2) Attic "White Moon in love; 3) Villa "Red Moon in love". 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.

Palace Rocco is located in the town center, 500 meters from the "fishing village of Praia", the summer living area of Praiano, from where you can reach various tourist places by sea (Capri, Positano, Amalfi, etc.), Make sport Water (Sub, windsurfing, kayaks, etc.). 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.

At 250 meters there are restaurants, bars and the grocery "Tutto per Tutti" (Everything For Everyone).

In the palace Rocco you can organize small weddings, dinners for guests on reservation and cooking classes. The spacious lounge and large outdoor terraces can accommodate up to 20 people. Villa Sun Shining is connected internally with the Red Moon villa so you can rent them together. The two villas have 5 bedrooms with 10 beds + 4 in sofa bed, 5 bathrooms and two terraces of 150 square meters. And so can accommodate up to 14 people.

Breathtaking Beauty

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed in the Villa Sun Shining in Love for a wonderful week. Upon our arrival we were greeted by a very helpful Lucca who gave us an orientation. After a walk down a path and a dozen or so steps we entered the large terrace with stunning views. Walking inside we experienced the true beauty of the villa itself. From the ceramic tiled bathrooms with beautiful lighting to the chandeliered bedrooms everything was elegantly styled. The village of Praiano was a perfect retreat after spending time in the crowded surrounding towns which were accessible by bus. There were many excellent restaurants in Praiano itself that were within walking distance or by the local bus. Several evenings we preferred sitting on the terrace drinking wine and eating cheeses, fruit and delicious tomatoes purchased from the local market. Everyone in our group agreed that the Villa exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend it as a perfect place to stay.

Immaculate and airy villa with great outdoor space

  • 5 of 5

The property has been refurbished very well indeed to a high specification. We thoroughly enjoyed making it our home for the week. The air conditioning was essential and worked very well. The beds were all very comfortable and the bedrooms are very spacious with added necessities like mosquito diffusers, hair dryers, soaps etc. We kept the windows closed most of the time so didn't suffer from mosquitos inside. The steam shower was a luxurious addition to the master bedroom. The views of the sea from the bedrooms and the terrace never failed to astound - every morning we woke up and couldn't wait to open the shutters. We spent a lot of time out on the terrace reading, and eating as it is perfectly set up for this. The BBQ worked very well and we had beautiful meals cooked off of it. Francesca arranged for a local chef to cook a meal with us one evening which was enjoyable. All our needs were taken care of by Luca and Francesca. I would highly recommend this property to others. Praiano was the perfect location for us: enough restaurants to visit and day trips to go on, but not over run with posing tourists - it felt less frenetic than other towns on the coast and suited us perfectly. It would be great if some essential items like washing machine detergent, bin bags, and other items were provided, but apart from that we were very happy here indeed and didn't want to leave!

Palace Rocco - heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were celebrating our 25th anniversary and traveling with our grown sons this week on the Amalfi coast. Palace Rocco - White Moon Shining - was the only villa available although the photos were dated. Francesca assured us the renovation would be complete by our arrival. It was and is spectacular! The view stunning and decoration fresh, Italian and elegant. Luca greeted us and was very friendly. He not only spoke English well but was super helpful with other requests during the week - even delivering groceries for us on his motor bike! They also had arranged for a guy to carry our luggage up and down upon arrival and departure( much appreciated). Praiano is a small quiet town - a welcome respite from Amalfi where you can use as a hub for day trips. If you are not used to walking you will be by the end, as the area is not for the faint steppers! But views make it all worth it. We highly recommend this villa. Thanks Francesca for the bottle of Proscecca.

We are so pleased that we picked Villa Sun Shining in Love for our trip to Amalfi. Praiano is a quite village with extremely friendly locals. The villa was clean, large and well equipped with beautiful views. Francesca was extremely accommodating with all requests and Luca went above and beyond with checking us in, helping us book excursions and reservations and finding travel arrangements to other towns in Amalfi. Loved our time spent in Amalfi! Thank you!

Nice stay in Praiano

  • 4 of 5

The flat is newly refurbished to high standards. The view from the balcony is very beautiful. Luca was very accomodating to check us in as we had major delays on the roads. He helped us to park our car in a free area. Praiano is a quiet village compared to Positano or Amalfi. Buses are not very reliable and overcrouded but on the other hand driving and parking is very difficult, so we chose not to use our car once in Praiano. You have to buy your ticket before boarding. We bought ours from a hotel reception close to the bus stop. We enjoyed our walk to Positano and visit to Amalfi and Ravello. The village shop Tutto i tutti which is not far from the flat has everything you possibly want at decent prices, including a map for the local walks.

No matter what I write it will not do this wonderful accommodation the justice it deserves. The check in/out time was flexible. Francesca was very helpful with any questions we had before going. Booking was as simple as can be. Luca was a welcoming host who greeted us as friends and showed us to the suite to pleasantly show us round. The flat was immaculately clean and spacious which made it so bright when the light streamed in from the veranda, which by the way gives the most stunning view to look onto, perfect for a romantic home-made meal or simply to wake up to. The kitchen and bathroom facilities were great and the air-con can cool the place in minutes but is quiet enough to get a good nights sleep. The location is perfect as you are not in a busy tourist town on the Amalfi Coast, thus making Praiano very peaceful and tranquil, but you are literally twenty minutes away from Amalfi on one side and Positano on the other. The small town centre has a host of delicious restaurants which overlook Positano and Capri, beautiful when the sun is setting, and there are also a couple of bars to go get a drink. There are two beaches tucked down on either side of the town. There is a Sita bus stop just down the road allowing for easy connections along the coast. The Sentiero Degli Dei, or 'Path Of The God's', can be accessed from the town via the San Domenico Monastery making for a great walk. If you are looking to use this as a base for travelling to Pompeii, Vesuvius or Capri then it is perfect since buses to Sorrento are regular (for Vesuvius and Pompeii) and there are a number of boat companies that will take you to Capri, or a range of places accessible by the sea for that matter, which can be arranged before hand. Praiano is a truly beautiful town tucked away from all the hustle and bustle and the Blue Dream Suite is the perfect place to stay no matter what holiday you are looking for. It offers everything you need, and more, and Franncesca and Luca could not be more welcoming. Thanks for such a great stay, Maria and Michael.
