Villa Corallium is the modern result of a brave vision of Francesco Milano. Born in Praiano, but soon orphan, he had to emigrate in Calabria looking for luck. In his several returns in Praiano, he fell in love and married Anna, a strong and marvellous woman, irreplaceable partner of life, that will always support Francesco dreams and work by his side.
After a few years, and the birth of the two sons, Sofia and Miro, Francesco, called "Franchino", found his stability, but kept dreaming about coming back to Praiano.
The chance came at the end of the Sixties, when a overhanging rock on the sea, was put on sale by a rich man from Positano.
With lots of effort against econimic and burocratic issues, he made is dream come true and the hotel he was trying to create finally saw the light, but he was very attentive in picking a glimpse of rock for him and his queen Anna (Ninetta) to keep, as a love oasis, where they could have lived forever.
After many many years, and after being a life time shelter, celebration place and heart-warming home for Franchino and Ninetta, this house has been given to the sons and nephews and has been turned in the Villa Corallium you can see today, to give the chance to many other couples, friends and families, to live in this little paradise a romantic moment, create a sweet memory or simply runaway from the everyday chaotic life that surrounds us all way too often.
We fell in love with the Amalfi Coast in this “castle” that now has been rearranged in six finely decorated rooms, all different from each other, to give to our guests several choices without giving up beauty, comfort, services, and especially the experience of the Milano family, that made its history and life-style revolve around the art of hospitality.
