Praiano and Vettica are ancient villages like all others on the Amalfi Coast, and are situated halfway between Positano and Amalfi. The origins of these two villages are unfortunately unknown to us because of the few documents found so far. Praiano, Antica Plagianum, facing east gives you the opportunity to enjoy the sun and moonrise, whilst Vettica Maggiore (where il Frantoio is set) faces west and from there you can admire wonderful sunsets behind the “Faraglioni” of Capri. Praiano has always been a fishing village and until few years ago fishing was the main profession. The old village was situated by the sea, but due to the saracen’s invasion, pestilences, and other natural calamities, they were obliged to move higher up in the mountains for safety reasons.
