Fantastic Rental

  • 5 of 5

Luigi was a great host. We used the pool every day. It has a gorgeous view. We went to the local store got fresh buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes and pasta to eat on the patio. There is also a great restaurant very close. We have an active family so we walked down to the beach and back up but you can also easily take a bus to Positano. The villa is fantastic with painted frescoes. We fit five people using the fold out bed and were fine.

Wonderful Villa with Ocean View

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this villa (Villa Antica) - it came exactly as advertised and it was wonderful. Luigi was very helpful and attentive getting us to the villa and situated. The villa was centrally located, clean and set-up perfectly for our stay. It was a great place for us to use as a base of operations as we explored the surrounding area or to stay put and relax. Wish we could have stayed longer.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your villa with us. The owners were very helpful to us and answered many questions. Yes, there were steps but we were assisted when we arrived and left which made it much easier. Most definitely, when you arrive, meet the owners at the Ceramic Factory. It would will make it much easier to locate the villa. A unique area to visit and a unique place to stay. Capri trip with private boat (12 passengers) was scenic and informative. Thank you again.

Above and beyond expectations

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased to stay in this villa. Perfectly situated in Praiano, this gem is nestled among residences that provided a true Italian experience. This was the home for a week for me and my partner, and my daughter and her boyfriend.

Please take the owner's suggestions when offered. While the owner stated to take a taxi to his factory and then he would show us the way to the villa, because of an issue that day with the ferry not traveling into Positano from Capri (rough seas), we ended up taking a bus from from Sorrento to Positano. We found ourselves lost. Long-story short: after quick call to Luigi, he arranged for a driver to retrieve us from the highway. Thank you!

Once we made it to Piazza San Luca (the last drivable spot before the stairs and walkways to the villa), we were met by Luigi's adorable daughter and nephew. They helped us to the villa and explained everything.

Luigi stopped in mid-week and checked on/cleaned the pool. He was very gracious and it was clear that he did not want to take up too much of our time/privacy with his visit, but he was very personable and we could have talked to him for hours.

We took the opportunity to visit his family's factory. I have to say this to future guests: please make this a planned stop on your trip. The entire family and staff that we met were professional and charming. A key point is that the products are created by artisans and is not mass produced. The merchandise is made to order, so we will need to wait several months before it arrives, but we know when it does, it will be such a great way to relive our stay in Praiano. Once we were ready to leave the factory, Luigi took us into Positano and dropped us off at an easier location to have lunch.

We have no complaints about the accommodations. Everything stated online is exactly as we experienced. So as to not to repeat previous comments, I agree with the thorough assessment of the other June 2016 reviewer.

It is not a hidden fact that one will expect to walk many flights of stairs, but this is part and parcel for the entire Amalfi Coast. We cooked quite a few meals and were mindful of picking up just what we needed when we were near one of the markets.

When we return to the Amalfi Coast, this is where we will stay.

Outstanding Villa in a wonderful town

  • 5 of 5

June 2016: We highly recommend this property for central and quiet place to stay on the Amalfi Coast. The hosts / owes were very nice, well organized and responsive to our enquiries. This is a great villa for two couples (which we were) or for a family of four or five.

Advantages of this property are:

1) Town: Wonderful: Quiet but wonderful town of Praiano has great restaurants, really nice port with amazing restaurants and bars (Il Pirata). We found the town to be a great central point (15 min to Positano, 30 min to Amalfi), with a bus from the main Piazza San Luca (3-5 min walk from Villa). The little grocery store near the Villa had sufficient basics to get us going, and further down the hill there is a much larger grocery store with everything you'll need.

2) The Villa: Excellent. It is wonderful in all regards, the paintings on the ceilings are amazing, especially when you wake up in the morning in the master bedroom.

3) Bedrooms: The bid in the master bedroom is large (King Size almost) and has a really comfortable bed, but the upstairs bed (Double) is very hard and for anyone wanting a medium to soft bed you will not sleep well. It would be nice if the owners can put in a Thermopedic mattress upstairs.

4) Bathrooms: Excellent. Shower stall upstairs, and bath with hand shower downstairs.

3) The pool and patio: Excellent, are wonderful in all aspects with good seating and shade.

4) Kitchen: Excellent. Very large with all the amenities to make cooking easy and enjoyable.

Considerations for renting this property:

1. Parking - This is about a 10 minute walk (which the owners will inform you about). You can park free and stay as long as you like in the street parking. We had no issues.

2. Steps to the Villa: Take your time and you are fine. The entire Amalfi coast is build on the hill, so get use to walking stairs and take your time. There are 55 stairs down to the villa from the top of Via Lama, and 80 steps down and then 15 steps up to get to the Piazza. When carrying in luggage, it is easier to walk down from the street parking

When you arrive, you meet the owners at their Ceramic Factory (just between Positano and Praiano), and then they will escort you to the Villa. This is a great service as getting there by yourself the first time would be a bit confusing. By the way their factory is amazing and worth the stop to look around.

We would stay here again if we get the chance to go back, and highly recommend it

Excellente adresse

  • 5 of 5

Praiano est très bien situé pour qui veut visiter la côte amalfitaine mais se réveiller au calme.point important: la ville étant sur une avancée et non une baie, elle est ensoleillée plus longtemps.Quant à la location, elle est parfaite, très bel aménagement, belle décoration, céramiques de la maison Casola, belle vue, accueil efficace et chaleureux, stationnement facile (en mai). Rester sur une des terrasses est un grand plaisir. La piscine est de bonnes dimensions. Précisons qu'il faut de bonnes jambes pour repartir, mais, ça c'est vrai pour toute la côte.
