Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Hotel Villa Franca is perched on a hill on the postcard-perfect Amalfi Coast, looking out over Positano and the Mediterranean.

Rooms at Hotel Villa Franca

The stylish rooms and suites reflect the heritage and landscape of the Amalfi Coast. They are light and airy, with a fresh white décor accentuated by splashes of blue - a nod to the sea outside the window. Special touches include colourful artworks and sculptures and locally handcrafted majolica tiles, alongside plush beds, Italian marble bathrooms and private terraces perfect for taking in the views of pretty Positano and the sea beyond. 

Food & Drink

Enjoy gourmet Mediterranean cuisine, inspired by sun-kissed regional dishes and made with the freshest of ingredients, including clams straight from the sea and just-plucked lemons. Wake up to a delicious buffet breakfast, and later in the day, head to the terrace at the elegant Li Galli, or dine on the rooftop, overlooking the sea.

The hotel has its own wine cellar (which you can see from the corridors above via a glass ceiling window), where you can enjoy wine tastings. In the evening, watch the famous Amalfi Coast sunsets, accompanied by a cocktail.  


Laze on your private terrace or by the rooftop pool, a peaceful retreat that's simply irresistible, as is the spa - ideal for a bit of blissful pampering.

Pick up a unique artisan souvenir, such as hand-painted ceramics, at the hotel’s exclusive boutique. 

Activities at Hotel Villa Franca

If you can drag yourself away from the hotel, the pretty cobbled plazas of Positano and two stunning beaches are just a stone's throw away, where you can swim in crystal-clear waters. If you don’t feel like walking, take the complimentary shuttle service.

Further afield, hike into the hills and around the cliff-edge trails along the coast for more beautiful vistas, while Amalfi and Ravello can be easily reached in a day trip. Admire the Amalfi Coast in style as you sail past quaint towns, hidden caves and the iconic Fiordo di Furore bridge on a luxury private boat trip. Tantalise your tastebuds on an Amalfi lemon tour, where you will find the fruits hanging from pergolas and taste them in homemade cakes, drinks and of course, limoncello.
