Villa Franca

This hotel is seasonal and welcoming guests from April to October.

Beaches, boutique luxury and breathtaking views from the heart of Positano

With an enviable spot amid Positano’s old streets, yet moments from the shore, Villa Franca is a peaceful haven in the heart of the action. This hilltop retreat overlooks the beautiful Amalfi Coast that’s magical by day and just as enchanting at night. Channel your inner Sophia Loren on a stylish lounger beside the rooftop pool. Sip cool cocktails as you scan the skyline. Admire the landscapes from Restaurant Li Galli. As the Italians say, “la vita è bella”.

Villa Franca was once a private home, created to celebrate its sublime setting. Still run by the same family, it’s now a chic boutique hotel that pays homage to old and new Amalfi. Inside, majolica and Italian marble sit alongside modern works of art and designer names.Here you could have lunch on the terrace, followed by an afternoon of pampering in the O'SPA, their chic wellness centre where all treatments are performed by skilled therapists, using Sothys skincare products. Then settle in to Gallis Bar – a favourite of the Positano in-crowd since the forties. Its piano music, library of films and vintage games are perfect accompaniments to aperitivo and pre-dinner nibbles.

Outside Villa Franca, meandering roads take you past pretty cliff-side towns and through some of Italy’s most iconic landscapes. It’s ideal hiking country, but the beaches fringing the hotel are the real stars. Hiring a boat, complete with skipper, is a wonderful way to see them all. To explore further afield, helpful Villa Franca staff will happily arrange a range of guided tours. Stop off in Sorrento, peruse Pompeii or discover the charismatic Gulf of Naples.

Loved our stay at HVF

Beautiful property located up the hills in Positano. Friendly staff who took care of many reservations prior to our stay and then continued to provide us wonderful service during our stay. Rooftop pool and bar are an added bonus. Highly recommend this hotel.

Food And Drinks

Refined yet relaxed, Restaurant Li Galli celebrates fresh, local ingredients and classic Mediterranean flavours. Sommeliers can select just the wine to match your meal. And it all comes with sensational coastal views. Those vistas only get more impressive at GalliGrill that’s set high up on the panoramic pool terrace.

Gold Sky Lounge

Served Meals: Lunch, Dinner A lounge that creates the perfect micro-climate for a sunny and relaxing lunch or al fresco dining of our Executive Chef Savio Perna- one Michelin Star and his team during the warm and breezy summer afternoons.

HVF Fine Breakfast

Served Meals: Breakfast From the traditional croissants to the cured meats and cheese- while admiring incredible vistas of the beach of Spiaggia Grande and Positano at your feet. There is no better way to start the day and let the soothing effects of the first rays of sunshine warm you up.

Li Galli

Served Meals: Dinner Li Galli Restaurant fine-dining menus are a taste of the sublime in a dream setting with sky-meets-sea views. The food here is rooted in local Campanian culinary traditions and utilizes the best produce of the territory- fruit and vegetables ripened under the Mediterranean sun-seafood caught in the bay and meats from the nearby hills.

Spa

Grand statues, ornate tiling, traditional steam baths – there’s a hint of classical Italy in O’SPA. Yet the soothing massage and beauty therapies are made for 21st-century life. After time spent in the hammam or Turkish bath, ready yourself for the beach with a manicure or pedicure. If you prefer working out to winding down, Villa Franca also has a personal trainer and well-equipped gym.
