Bolero A is a beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment in Praiano, Italy. If your objective is visit the many towns of the Amalfi Coast but be away from the hustle and bustle and noise that comes with being in the centre of a busy tourist town, this apartment is the place to stay. It is ideally located between Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. Both bedrooms and bathrooms are roomy, well-appointed and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is stocked with most everything that you would need if you were planning on cooking your own meals. The owners had a lovely bottle of wine and munchies waiting for us which was a nice touch. Luca provided explanation on where to catch the bus, where the local markets are located and a binder full of other useful information The rental company also provided, for a nominal fee, the choice of having our fridge and pantry stocked prior to our arrival. We took advantage of this service as we were arriving late and the grocery store would be closed. An itemized grocery list with prices was provided in advance of your arrival as part of the check in process. It was great to arrive at the apartment with a fridge stocked with our morning essential, as well as, fresh salad, bocconcini, prosciutto, local olives and wines, etc. All of which we got to enjoy upon are arrival on the wonderfully spacious terrace, under the stars looking out over the sea. It was a view that we were fortunate enough to enjoy each and every night while sipping local limoncello, Prosecco or local wines. We also were treated to amazing fireworks most nights thanks to the location of this wonderful apartment with the views of the mountains above and Tyrrhenian Sea below.
Praiano does not have a Piazza in the centre of village like most other towns. The Bolero A has two local grocery stores and Pizzeria nearby. Getting from town to town was fairly easy utilizing the local bus transportation. The Inter-Praiano and Positano bus was an easy 5 minute walk to the nearest bus stop at the Comune Di Praiano (City Hall) and the tickets could be purchased at the Tutto per Tutti Market. The bus stop for buses to other parts of the Amalfi Coast was a good 15 minute walk down to the road below by taking several steps down. The bus tickets could be purchased at the local Tabacchi. I would most definitely stay at the Bolero A again & book with Domenico who was very professional with prompt responses to my e-mails and a very efficient booking process.
