Customer Reviews

Overall:
FABULOUS! Great house... Great location.
Enjoyed Most:
The views were outsanding and the house was beautiful. The grounds, pool, furnishings were fine and outdoor space was excellent. Very clean and comfortable.
Enjoyed Least:
There really was nothing...
Surrounding Area:
Loved the town and access to the beaches and swimming areas. You have to be able to deal with A LOT of steps. Keeps you in good shape and allows you to eat all you want!
Nearby Events or Locales:
Praiano is adorable.. has everything you need. Great restaurants and groceries.
Tips or Restaurants:
We were a large group of 15, so getting around the coast was challenging and super expensive. Cabs are expensive and the "orange" shuttle bus up and down the coast is crowded and long waits. Having your own car would be frightening so you are sort of stuck..factor that into the cost of the trip and arrange a price with a limo/car company beforehand. Also, we found out that most of the restaurants will send a car for you..San Pietro etc...
Directions:
we were told to call the manager and it worked out well. We hired a porter to carry our bags down the steps to the villa and that is a must!
Check In Out:
Very organized and efficient.
