We stayed at Villa Lauretta for 3 weeks. The only thing that could have been an improvement is if we had stayed longer. The kitchen is well stocked, the beds comfortable, and the view is outstanding. The owner is gracious, speaks english, and went out of his way to make our stay perfect. Don't delay, don't hesitate, visit Villa Lauretta.

My husband and two teenage children stayed here for one week. The villa was spacious and well equipt and the balconies/terraces were all a pleasure on which to spend time relaxing whilst viewing the gorgeous scenery. We also loved the fact that you could take an interesting walk in the gardens for a change from just having a terrace.Close by was a beach and several restaraunts/cafe's to take an evening stroll to if you don't feel like driving. There are also grocery shops close by to walk up the mounside to but they are well hidden so ask the owner, who is very helpful and friendly, for directions. All in all we were very happy with our choice of villa and thought it excellent value for money.

It was a family wedding in Positano that brought us to wonderful Italy. We were recommended by friends to stay in Praiano, situated almost 5 miles further along the Amalfi coast. After trawling the web for agents we came across Summer in Italy (and never looked back!)Their site is far superior. (It is very daunting to hire a Villa from such a distance!) All the staff were first class and we need not have worried as Villa Lauretta was a dream. Praiano is much quieter than Positano but this is what we prefered. We found an excellent shop up in the village which we walked to every day. There are plenty of good restaurants based close to the Villa. As it was so hot and we had a 5 month old baby with us we spent most of our time on the huge patio, relaxing. We used the local bus to travel to Positano which always arrived on time. The only problem we came across was that the main bus service from Positano to Amalfi was always full so we did not even attempt to catch one as it would have proved most difficult with baby,pushchair,& rucksacks! We left Praiano just as the full season was starting so who knows more buses may have been available the following week. What we enjoyed best was walking in the village along the cobbled walkways between the houses and meeting the Italian people who adore babies! And what we liked least was leaving!

this villa was in great location with fantastic views. The accomodation was excellent but the main reason we booked this accomodation was because it came with parking (in a garage) a little tricky to get into but nethertheless brilliant as not many properties had parking.
Many good restuarants within easy walking distance as was the beach and boats to travel up or down the coast. Overall a superb villa, in a superb location, would definatley reccomend.
