About The Experience
Located 1500 meters above the town of Praiano, two couples or a family will love the views from the terrace and the proximity of the town with nice shops and restaurants. You can either walk/climb uphill to the apartment (best to be in good shape!) or take the small minibus which stops close to the property (May to October). Just 200 meters away are two grocery shops that will home-deliver upon request. When not visiting the other towns of Ravello, Amalfi, Positano, and Sorrento, you will spend a lot of time enjoying the spectacular views of the coastline.
Location Description

Two very well equipped grocery shops are only 200 m from the house and they will home-deliver upon request. The property is located about 1500 m above the 'town center' of Praiano, known as Vettica, where most of the amenities, good restaurants, and bars are located. The inlet, enclosed by high cliffs, is home to several restaurants offering excellent local cuisine, boat hire service and a scuba diving school. The center of Praiano can be easily reached either on foot in 10-15 minutes or by a little local minibus which is convenient and economical. There is frequent bus service from May- October and it stops just a few steps from the house. The local minibus will also take you to the charming beaches of Praia and Positano or to the bus stop where you can board the Sita buses to all the well-known tourist spots on the coast. The pebble beach at Praia can also be reached on foot in about 20 minutes. The ferry to Capri, Sorrento, and Salerno can be boarded in Positano or Amalfi.

Please Note: While the Amalfi Coast is beautiful and charming, it is also steep, with many uphill and downhill stairs and walkways. In general, it is an area that is not kind to those of us with knee or mobility issues. This should be considered before booking a property in this area.

Exterior Description
This charming and comfortable property is situated in a pedestrian area at the top of the village Praiano. The apartment features a private terrace (100 m2), which runs the full width of the property, and offers a panoramic view of the sea. The terrace has a barbecue, dining table for 4 people, a large sun umbrella and deck chairs, and is the perfect spot to share a meal or drink with friends while enjoying the gorgeous sea views. The apartment is accessed from a quiet piazza in the heart of the village, by climbing a 200 m private walkway which consists of approximately 115 steps. Having a car is not essential while staying at this property, however, if you do have one (rent the smallest car possible!), there is a pay-parking lot 500 m from the property.
Interior Description
(65 m2)

There is an open–plan room equipped with a kitchen area, wooden dining table to seat four people, and sitting area with a comfortable sofa, satellite TV, DVD player, CD player and French windows opening to the wide terrace. The modern kitchen is equipped with a four-burner stove, electric oven, large refrigerator with freezer, dishwasher, microwave oven, toaster, American coffee maker, kettle, blender, an Italian-style coffee-maker, and a portable fan. To the left of the kitchen is a small corridor that leads to the two bedrooms and the bathroom. The master bedroom has a double bed and French windows that open onto the terrace. The second bedroom has two twin-beds that can be pushed together into a double bed on request. The room has a window that opens on the terrace. Both bedrooms have air conditioning and heating. There is a bathroom with majolica tiles and marble, a sink, a toilet, fully-enclosed shower, hairdryer, and a washing machine.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
We had a tremendous time. We especially enjoyed our cappuccino out on the terrace. We had so many plans to visit other areas, but we cancelled some of those outings because we enjoyed creating our own antipasto, pouring a glass of vino, and relishing the solitude.
Enjoyed Most:
The terrace and view.
Enjoyed Least:
We wished we could open the screen doors to go directly out onto the terrace, but it wasn't a big deal.
Surrounding Area:
We loved the local markets, fresh fruits and vegetables, and of course being surrounded by olive and lemon trees. We also loved the local churches and the many paths to walk.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Praiano is by far the most tranquil town on the coast.
Tips or Restaurants:
All the eateries in Praiano are superb.
Directions:
You could get on a train from Naples to Sorrento. Then you would need to get on the Sita bus from Sorrento to Praiano. Once in Praiano, you could walk to the Tutto per Tutti small grocery store to meet the manager to walk you up the 128 steps to the villa. The walk is worth all the food and wine we drank. We came home and didn't gain any weight.
Check In Out:
Check in and check out process was excellent. Filomena was always on time and so nice. She provided maps and information on events throughout the Amalfi Coast.

Overall:
We had a nice time and saw Amalfi, Positano, Capri and Sorrento. House is very nice and clean. People around us all nice and friendly and helpful. We had a few meals out and the food everywhere was good. Convenient to have a market at the foot of our hill.
Enjoyed Most:
The view--beautiful.
Enjoyed Least:
Probably the stairs...a young person would have no problem but we are in our 60's. They were a bit rough to navigate for me.
Surrounding Area:
It is extremely quiet and the neighbors are all friendly. It is perfect for someone wanting peace, quiet, and privacy.
Nearby Events or Locales:
No, not for us. The next closest town would probably be Amalfi and you need to take a bus or a taxi anywhere you want to go other than Praiano.
Tips or Restaurants:
We had pizza at Che Bonta...very good. Good service and reasonable prices. Also there was a take out place within walking distance that was very good. Bring wash cloths and the items mentioned on the list sent by RentVillas. Also bring aspirin and antibiotics in case of illness.
Directions:
We had a taxi take us. He called the local manager for directions. We did not drive and did not rent a car.
Check In Out:
No, it went very smoothly. Antonietta and Philomena were helpful and on time.

Overall:
It was wonderful and we would stay again!
Enjoyed Most:
The views were incredible. The property is very well-kept and we loved the family that owned the property. We were also given eggs from their chickens! The market at the end of the road was easy to get to and had a very good selection of food.
Enjoyed Least:
The 130 steps to get to the property--like a Stairmaster everyday at least once or twice. Guess that meant we could eat more pasta!
Surrounding Area:
The other cities were just a bus ride away. We also enjoyed the local stores and restaurants.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The actual village of Praiano is within walking distance and has a few nice restaurants. Other small towns are a 5-10 minute bus ride.
Tips or Restaurants:
We brought sweetener and Ziplock bags. We also found a great restaurant in the city of Praiano, Che Bonta'-- they also did food to go or, as it's called in Italy, to "take away".
Directions:
We had a car pick us up from Naples and bring us to the property. I would do that again.
Check In Out:
The overall check-in and check-out were good. When we arrived there was not a porter to take our luggage to the property which was part of the cost. Going up all those steps was a challenge. We did have someone when we left. Ask for the Internet code upon arrival; the Internet worked well.
