Palace Rococo is the perfect place to stay to experience the magic of the Amalfi coast!

  • 5 of 5

Francesca and Guilia will do everything in their power to make sure that your trip to the Amalfi coast is your best vacation yet! The rooms at the Red Moon in Love , Palace Rococo are immaculate, well stocked and as lovely as the photos show. The breathtaking view is impossible to describe from your spacious little garden, complete with flowers and lemon trees! Delightful! Pack light for the steps and steep hills which are part of the daily life of the coast! We loved being in Praiano as opposed to her hectic neighbor Positano. Perfect location to explore the entire coast without the frantic energy of more touristy spots. We rented a scooter and drove everywhere no problem once we learned to navigate between the busses and the twisting very narrow roads. Be sure to make a reservation for the restaurant Frattoria Latagliata which lies not in the busy center but past the main part of Positano high up the mountain road in an area of Positano called Montepertuso. We ate above the clouds with a stunning view of the coastline. The best food of the trip. Family run with no menu just one price (40 euros each)for a bottle of wine and 5 HUGE courses of whatever Mama is cooking that day. You will be amazed and stuffed! Stop at Praia di Marina for a beach day. 22 euros will get you 2 sunchairs and an umbrella for the day. Add parking if you drive there. Worth every penny for this experience like Santorini meets the Grand Canyon!

This was truly a dream spot too beautiful for words. It must be experienced! Thank you Francesca! Thank you Red Moon in Love!

Owner's Response: Ciao Dona, thanks for the fantastic review. We're so glad you found yourself in our home. The information described in your review will be very useful for future Rocco Palace guests. I see you've lived the Amalfi Coast as you should. We always go with the scooter and we like to eat well in the particular premises we know well. The La tagliata restaurant is a farmhouse, they are peasants who cook very well, especially the meat. I hope to see you again in the future. We would love to meet you again. Greetings from the Palazzo Rocco Team. Francesca, Giulia & Mena (owner).

Beautiful villa, gorgeous views and nice location near fantastic restaurants, grocery, etc.

  • 4 of 5

My family of 4 (2 kids, 2 adults) stayed for a few days in mid March. The pre-trip communication from Franchesca was nice and informative. Luca met us and took us to the villa. Very simple and clear instructions for the use of the villa. Unfortunately for us, Italy was experiencing some unusually cold weather, so we didn't get to enjoy the beautiful patio. The kitchen and bathroom were small, but that's pretty ordinary for European rentals. They also could have used a couple more blankets for the extra bed. On our next trip to the Amalfi coast, we'll probably stay here again. It was just as advertised.

Owner's Response: Ciao Grant, thanks for the great review. We are used to have always 5 stars but your 4 stars, given the extremely unfavorable climate and unusual cold, we consider them as an act of generosity on your part. On the Amalfi coast when it's sunny we all live happily but when it's raining we're a bit depressed. Fortunately, the sun accompanies us for almost the whole year. Please if you come back return from May to October. You will live the Amalfi coast differently and you will always be outdoors to enjoy the sun or in the evening the large terrace. We hope to see you again in the future. We thank you for choosing our home. The staff of Palazzo Rocco. Francesca & Luca.

Great relaxing stay with fab views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great 4 days relaxing after a busy stay in Venice and Rome. We used the recommended taxi service and did a visit to Pompeii on our way from Naples to Praiano - well worth it. Even though it was late Winter - there was plenty to do and the views along the Amalfi Coast were just amazing. Would love to visit in warmer weather. This is an area that has lots of stairs and hills - so be mindful of this when visiting. Old Rocco Palace was easily accessible and Luca was on hand to assist with luggage. Would definitely return.

Amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Luca, we had a beautiful stay. The house is exactly as represented. We had the luxury of staying 9 nights. The transportation is very easy. It was great to come home to a beautiful retreat. The Master bedroom is painted the most serene blue with sheer blue drapes that just flow in the beautiful breeze from the sea. Simply stunning. The host was very attentive and we had no problems, check in was a breeze.

Thank you again, hope to see this beautiful city again.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Francesca's Palace Rocco "Red Moon in Love" and are very pleased with our experience. Red Moon in Love is down a beautiful flight of stairs, so inviting, leading to a very large and quite private patio. There are plenty of loungers and a table outside for dining and barbecue grill, but most important a fantastic view. The house was sparsely decorated, no clutter, and the most immaculately clean rentals we have ever stayed in. Each room has a gorgeous view. The living room and bedroom have small balconies and you can open the doors for the most amazing breeze and views. It really is breathtaking. We like to cook in a lot and the kitchen had the very bare basics and was sufficient and also with a beautiful view and windows that open to let in the sea breeze while you are cooking . There are no beach towels so you must use the bath towels and recycle the towels often. There is a washing machine, so we washed our towels every day after the beach and hung them to dry outside on the handy drying rack and this system worked very well for us. The air-conditioning system works very well, there's plenty of storage for our things, and we found the firm bed to be quite comfortable. We think the stay was topped off by the fantastic experience with Francesca and her team. They were very responsive, welcoming, and very lovely. We would definitely visit Palace Rocco without hesitation. Praiano is a stunning town with some of the nicest locals we have ever visited with. We are very pleased we chose to stay here and at Francesca's. **One more note, you absolutely must wear bug spray when using the patio after about 5pm. They didn't seem to bother my husband much but I always attract mosquitoes!

We could not ask for more.

Clean and functional apartment with a wonderful terrace and garden, shaded from the heat of the day.

I cooked several nights, perhaps an extra salad bowl and tongs would be great and a platter for meats and cheeses would be handy. These are just minor thoughts.

Our son loved that he had his own comfortable sofa bed and slept soundly.

Views - sunrises and watching the boats and the unbelievable moonlight reflection at night.

Great supermarket 'Tutto per tutti' in next higher street. Fabulous produce, so fresh fresh daily and lovely people.

Nonno next door even offered his first of his new season plums to us through the railings.

Restaurants are very good and well priced in Praiano. Beach club at La Praia great. Transport easy - orange bus praiano to positano loop, blue bus internal praiano. Sita bus stairs down to the main coast Road (tickets from nice people at tabacci.

I think we walked 40km in 5 days, up and down stairs and over the cliffs - we are fit but be prepared for the burn.

We would walk forever just to come back to Praiano and to stay here with Francesca's help and Luca's kindness - you will have the best time here!

Praiano is a relaxed and quieter choice than the hectic pace of positano, more authentic.

We will be back for several weeks this time.

Ciao ciao
