Overview

About the property

Bedrooms: 2, bathrooms: 2, sleeps 4.

Villa Angiolina is a splendid and luminous two-story villa built sheer above the sea. It sleeps four people. From Villa Angiolina you will enjoy a breathtaking view of the sea, of Praiano and the coast of Amalfi. Villa Angiolina is 120 square meters (1290 square feet). It features two wide private terraces with a view of the sea, a private garden, air conditioning (please read description below to check in which rooms the units are installed), winter heating and WI-FI Internet access.

You will be roughly 1 km (0.6 miles) from the center of Praiano, where you will find restaurants, shops and public transportation. You will find a grocery store at 200 meters (220 feet), the stop for the Flavio Gioia bus Positano - Praiano line at 300 meters (990 feet) and the closest beach at 2 km (roughly 1.25 miles). You will reach Villa Angiolina from the street level going up a 200-meters (660-feet) public walkway that includes approximately 160 stairway steps.

For a succesful stay at Villa Angiolina we recommend having a car. You will be able to park it at approximately 250 meters (270 yards), for a fee, in a private parking lot. Private parking must be reserved ahead of time; we kindly ask you to let our staff know, so that we can make the necessary arrangements for you.

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 from Amalfi.

The air is clean and perfumed by flowers, the view is a continuous spell, ever-changing as the hours of the day and of the night go by.

So much beauty will convey to you that joy of life and to be right there that everybody calls the “magic” of the Divina Costiera, and which will make you happy of having chosen this place for your vacation.

The terrace of Villa Angiolina, with its elegant arched roof, its white columns, the flowers, the elegant furnishing, is a perfect framework to enjoy so much beauty in peace and relax. It is indeed a nice place to spend your holidays, a place that is worth to be discovered, even if you will have to walk and to climb some steps to get there. As a matter of fact, the villa is at the top of the village of Praiano, in a pedestrian precinct. To reach it you will have to walk for approximately 200 meters (220 yards) and to climb 160 steps. It is a walk that will allow you to discover an authentic and untouched corner of the Amalfi Coast, one of those that made the area deserve the title of “World Heritage Site” awarded by UNESCO. Indeed, this area has not been changed to please the masses of tourists, here you will not find shops but only authentic locals, which will welcome you with courtesy and liking. Don’t be surprised if the people that you meet in the street will say hello even if they don’t know you! Just say hello to them and smile back!

The closest beach is the beautiful beach of Marina di Praia, situated in a natural scenery of extraordinary beauty. You will find it at the feet of two tall rocky walls, and it can be reached descending a 'scalinatella' (a stairway cut into the cliff) that leads to the Saracen Tower by the sea, and hence walking along a downhill pedestrian alley that will take you straight to this enchanting beach, where the sea has emerald water. From this point, with short boat trips, you will also be able to visit the surrounding coastline, particularly the suggestive Suppraiano Grottos, and Africana Grotto. You will also be able to reach the beach taking a bus that, during the good season, stops every 20 minutes.

Since the villa is not easily reachable, we can not recommend it if you feel that climbing many steps might be difficult for you.

Villa Angiolina is so very beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Villa Angiolina is so very beautiful. The view was priceless. We have and will continue to recommend the villa to everyone we loved every moment we were there!

Julietta [the owner] provided for every need. She was so kind and generous with her time and information about the area.

The Summer In Italy website was very helpful for obtaining information about many of our destinations in Italy. I will use it for future bookings.

Villa Angiolina is a stunning villa overlooking the Amalfi Coast

  • 5 of 5

Villa Angiolina is a stunning villa overlooking the Amalfi Coast. It was the perfect holiday, would not hesitate to rent Villa Angiolina again!

Julietta was the perfect host, she was always available if needed. She made sure we had all the essentials on arrival and it was a big bonus to have porters take our luggage up the steps.

Your agency does a first class job in all phases of the rental process. We will book again through Summer In Italy for our next holiday in Italy.

Some say “you can't go home again” but, for us, going back to Villa Angiolina a second time was even

  • 5 of 5

Some say “you can't go home again” but, for us, going back to Villa Angiolina a second time was even better than our first glorious stay.

The villa is immaculate right down to the freshly ironed bed linens! Everything about the villa is superb. It is heaven on earth for its natural beauty, perfectly maintained gardens and spacious rooms, and for its wonderful hostess. The best place we ever stayed!

Praiano is a gorgeous town but Villa Angiolina makes the experience even better. It is the best place to stay for its beauty and because it is close to the biggest market (Tutto Per Tutti) and the local bus stop that takes you everywhere in town and to Positano.

The owner, Julietta, is absolutely outstanding. She takes great pride in presenting her spectacular villa with the most beautiful decor and hospitality. Thanks for your warm hospitality, you and Daniele are terrific! Keep up the good work. God willing, we will be back! God bless you Julietta.

Excellent experiences with Summer In Italy. Your website is the best of any rental agency we worked with... Very detailed, extremely useful information, and many pictures. The personal touch is also unique and appreciated. Thank you for a great experience.

Villa Angiolina is a beautiful villa, an excellent location in a quiet and serene setting

  • 5 of 5

Villa Angiolina is a beautiful villa, an excellent location in a quiet and serene setting!

It was a top notch accommodation and our teenager children absolutely loved Villa Angiolina and the town. The stairs and walking were really nothing and we so looked forward returning to our little oasis in the sky. The views were spectacular - we found it hard to leave. Villa Angiolina is one of the top villas we have seen in the area and we will most certainly be back.

Don't hesitate... Book your tickets and go. You will not regret this decision!

Julietta [the owner] and the folks at Summer In Italy were fantastic!

Summer In Italy's team and website is fantastic! Great support before and after we booked. Always quick to respond and a wealth of information and tips! Their selection of properties is top notch! Highly recommend using them for your next booking to Italy.
