About The Experience
This beautiful two bedroom apartment in Praiano adds a little Greek flavor to your Italian holiday. Pure white walls accented with blue furnishings and decorations welcome two couples or a small family to relax and enjoy the spacious home and the even more spectacular views. With two terraces, one with an attractive garden and the other with a private pool, you will have a hard time leaving your home to explore the coast. Walk down to the sea or visit the nearby towns of Positano, Sorrento and Amalfi.
Location Description

This apartment is situated below the main street of Praiano, a small fishing village made up of houses scattered along the ridge of Monte S. Angelo down to the Mediterranean Sea. A small well-stocked supermarket is a short distance from the villa and about 400 meters away you will find coffee bars with internet facilities, a tourist information center, restaurants, a post office, shopping, and more! Visit Marina di Praia, a small and charming pebble beach surrounded by the houses and boats of local fishermen. It is dotted with small, authentic restaurants not to be missed by any seafood lover. If you do not have a problem with climbing steps, visit the small, delightful beach of “Gavitella”, located at the bottom of a small rocky inlet. The beach houses a restaurant with beach facilities, open during the summer season. La Gavitella can be reached either on foot, walking along a path that includes about 350 steps, or by sea using the local ferry service! The SITA bus stop, the long distance bus that goes to Amalfi and Sorrento, and the local bus stop, the shuttle bus that goes from Praiano to Positano, are situated at the beginning of the steps leading down to this apartment.

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.

Nearby Attractions: In Praiano, a town characterized by its expansive views on the sea and its fishermen who dot the marina and bring fresh seafood to the authentic restaurants, you can enjoy numerous historical, architectural and naturalistic attractions. Its beach, La Cala of Gavitella, is the only beach on the Amalfi Coast illuminated until sunset at which time, be sure to join the locals at nearby wine bars such as Vivaro or Le Fioriere Cocktail and Wine Bar. Surrounding Praiano are several vineyards and a hiking trail, Sul Sentiero degli Dei, which stretches to Positano! In Positano, the main square Piazza dei Mulini offers restaurants and shops or head to one of the beaches such as Spiaggia del Fornillo.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
The villa was perfect. It had everything necessary for an amazing week and beautiful views!!
Enjoyed Most:
The view of the sea and the calming clanging of the church bell nearby.
Enjoyed Least:
Steps! Soooo many steps. And parking was far away.
Surrounding Area:
Praiano is a beautiful town. The local people are warm and very kind.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Positano was a short shuttle bus ride away. Positano is beautiful beyond words!
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring bug spray. Evening promised a fleet of mosquitoes. Our favorite restaurant next to the villa was Tramonto de'Oro. It's a beautiful cliff side hotel/restaurant with breathtaking views. The owner and her family are always present and are so friendly. They go to each table to learn about their guests. Such a nice family.
Directions:
I was given a meeting place to follow the designated villa coordinator. She looked out for my car and we followed her to the parking lot. Parking is limited and expensive!
Check In Out:
Be sure to hire a porter to handle luggage on check in and check out. Many many steps to navigate with luggage!!

Overall:
Overall, the location and the view are perfect for anyone looking to relax on the Amalfi coast. Praiano is a small, quiet town that feels very authentic. The villa is absolutely stunning and we had an amazing time staying there for our honeymoon.
Enjoyed Most:
The view of the Amalfi Coast is incredible from this villa, especially when viewed from the private pool and lawn chair area on the property!
Enjoyed Least:
We had some disruptions as the villa owner's parents live upstairs, and they had men on the roof for an entire day during our stay replacing their A/C units. This detracted from our privacy and it was noisy.
Surrounding Area:
The villa is located at a central location in Praiano, which is close to many of the amazing restaurants within walking range. The bus stop at the top of the stairs was convenient to travel to other places along the coast.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The nearest towns were Positano and Amalfi. Neither were within walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
We would highly recommend the San Gennaro pizzeria that is very close to the villa. The local wine there is incredible and the pizza was the best out of everywhere we tried in Italy.
Directions:
The check in process involved a local representative meeting us close to the villa, and bring us to it. This was seamless and there were no problems.
