Villa Angiolina is a splendid villa of 120 square meters (approximately 1290
square feet) which sleeps four persons. It has a porch, a terrace and a garden
with a spectacular view of the sea. From any observation point of the house you
will be able to enjoy breathtaking seascapes sheer above the sea.
The villa is built on two levels, and on each level you will find a large
terrace that extends towards the blue of the sky and of the sea. It has two
bedrooms, a large living room, a roomy kitchen and two bathrooms.
The two bedrooms and the living room are equipped with air conditioning.
Villa Angiolina has been built taking away the space from the rock, almost on
top of the high cliff sheer above the sea that encloses the tiny bay of the
beach called "Praia".
From the beach, on the bottom, if you look up at the sky, you will be able to
spot the two white columns of the terrace of Villa Angiolina on top of the
vegetation that grows on the cliff.
The other way around, if you stand on the terrace you will see the cliff
below you like if you were on top of a skyscraper made of rock and covered by
the thriving Mediterranean vegetation. It is especially charming to see,
vertically below you, the small cape where the ancient circular Saracen Tower
stands. The tower was built a thousand years ago as a defence for the small bay
of Praia. The sea in the inlet guarded by the tower is deep blue, and it is
spotted with the blob of colour of the small boats that are moored there.
If you let your sight wander, you will see a wide horizon of sky, sea and
coast, up to the characteristic cape of Conca dei Marini, which divides Praiano
