We stayed here 2 nights during off season for our honeymoon. We had a room on the 3rd floor with a large terrace overlooking Positano - it was amazing!!!! Room was clean and comfortable, it wasn't very big though and a ceiling fan would have been nice as room got a little stuffy. Shower was tight but had great water pressure. The only thing that didn't work out for us as planned was the room rate we purchased from expedia included a "breakfast buffet". Once at the hotel they charged us 12 Euro per person per day for breakfast as expedia did not have the correct specifics on our room reservation requirements. This wasn't the first mistake expedia made either; the other hotel we booked a "balcony garden room" only to arrive and find that these rooms do not exist at the hotel. The hotel staff was nice and explained that sometimes there is a translation error from Italian to English, I get it but I also want to get what I expect I am paying for...
Hotel is located at the very outside of Positano. It has a wonderful view of the city and a transfer bus (free of charge) that takes you the 10 minute ride into downtown. One the most beautiful hotels we have ever stayed in.
The room while being very clean, is a little out-dated and could use an interior decorators' touch. It was very large, and had a beautiful balcony.
All of Positano has a problem with pharaoh ants. We came home on night and found many all over the floor. The staff was very fast at getting it cleaned up, but we did notice them all over the city, not just in our hotel room.
Overall I was very happy with the hotel and the value.
The restaurant at the hotel is very pricey. And not very good.
"Perfect location. Close to all attractions - beach"
Spent 6 days there. First day used limo car with driver (Euro40-00/hr x 7 hrs) to visit Pompei, Ravello and Amalfi coast. Second day hired a 18ft power boat from beach kiosk to tour Capri and Amalfi coast by sea (Euro280-00 for whole day - all costs). Third day shopped around Positano - recommend Idillio for men and ladies summer clothes. Fourth day lay around on beautiful beach - crystal clear water. Fifth day - same as fourth day. Sixth day - beach in morning and long walk in afternoon - fantastic. All amenities brilliant - if any nit pick, Wi-Fi could be better but was sufficient to keep in touch with business in Australia.

We had a fabulous stay at villa franca. The staff are professional, courteous and extremely helpful. Breakfast was fantastic and the servers kindly offer espresso drinks each morning. Loved just hanging out in the lounge over wine and some games. Will definitely come back again.
