I took my mother and aunt to Ravello for an overnight trip from Naples. We found the hotel online and were hoping the hotel was as beautiful as the pictures online. The pictures did not do the hotel justice! It was absolutely superb. The entire hotel is extremely clean and very well maintained. We stayed in a superior sea view room and could not have been happier. Our view was unbelievable and we were able to enjoy it from a very large balcony with comfortable chairs. Everything in our room was top of the line and very tastefully decorated. The AC worked extremely well and we were not hot ever.
Villa Fraulo is easily accessible by car. The hotel has seven floors with the parking and secondary entrance located on the bottom floor and the reception and main entrance located on the seventh floor. Ravello is obviously quite hilly and can be difficult on foot in parts. Villa Fraulo's secondary entrance provides access to the main piazza in Ravello without having to walk any stairs, etc.
Breakfast is included in all of the rates and offers a wide variety of food. There are tables inside with AC or outside on the gorgeous patio with umbrellas offering shade. The infinity pool is a bit small but the view from the pool which overlooks the Amalfi Coastline is out of this world.
The most amazing aspect of Villa Fraulo is the extremely professional, extremely friendly and beyond helpful staff. When you stay at Villa Fraulo the staff makes you feel like you are the only person staying with them. I cannot say enough about how pleased we were with Villa Fraulo's staff. Upon our arrival I parked our car in a public parking lot down the street while we checked-in. The doorman Guiseppe took my keys, collected our car from the parking lot, unloaded everything into our room and had the car parked at the hotel within minutes. We were treated the same upon our departure.
Villa Fraulo is a bit expensive but is definitely worth every penny. I plan to stay there many times in the future!
