Overview

About the property

Bedrooms: 3, bathrooms: 4, sleeps 11.

Villa Giampa is a splendid villa with the fascination of the typical and ancient mediterranean houses. It sleeps 11 people. From Villa Giampa you will enjoy a thrilling view of the sea and of the coastline. Villa Giampa is 160 square meters (1720 square feet). It features a private swimming pool, 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) and WI-FI Internet access.

You will be in a pedestrian precinct, in the seventeenth-century historic center of Praiano, where you will find restaurants, shops and the stop for the SITA bus and for the local bus. You will find the closest beach at roughly 1 km (0.6 miles). You will reach Villa Giampa from the street level going up a 150-meters (490-feet) public walkway that includes approximately 62 stairway steps.

You will not need a car to stay at Villa Giampa. If you do have one, you will be able to park it at approximately 200 meters (220 yards), for a fee, in a public parking lot (being the lot a public one, parking spaces can not be reserved). Alternatively, you can park free of charge along the public roads (the actual distance might vary depending on the availability of parking spaces).

Villa Giampa is part of the historical center of Praiano, which consists of a cluster of white houses on the highest area of a steep slope of a hill overlooking the sea. The houses are nestled around the beautiful bell-tower and the eighteenth-century church of San Luca.

In this area of Praiano, almost all the houses date back to the eighteenth century. They feature white façades often decorated with stuccoes, patios below masonry arches sustaining terraces facing the sea, and sloping gardens filled with flowers and citrus trees around. To walk through such extraordinary village, declared World Heritage site by UNESCO, means climbing narrow stairways and pedestrian streets.

The whole area is made for pedestrians, except for the only access street to the main square. Here you will not find streets packed with tourists; all you will see are the kind inhabitants of the place. And you will be able to experience the fascination and authentic beauty of the Amalfi Coast: one not changed by the actions of tourism!

Villa Giampa lies in a secluded position, having been built chiefly on a rocky steep slope. Once you have crossed the entrance gate, a beautiful white staircase - flanked with pots full of flowers - will lead you up on a terrace which is the access to both the house and a second larger terrace (through an external flight of steps).

Villa Giampa will enchant you for sure! You'll face only the blue of the sky and the sea, while both sides show the green coastal outline spotted with the typical white houses in Praiano.

The clean and lemon-scented air, the vivid colors under the Mediterranean sun, and the harmony and beauty surrounding you will make you happy for being alive and enjoying your vacation in such a great place…Swimming Pool

A beautiful villa in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is located in Praiano, a small town that is about a 10 minute bus ride from Positano. It is a quieter town than Positano and we felt very safe. This is the perfect location if you are travelling with a large party. After climbing 50+ steps, you will enter in the Villa Giampa. There is a locked gate and another set of 15 + steps that lead to the villa entrance. The first level has a long table and grill area. Inside, there is a large kitchen with plenty of plates, glasses, serving platters, and utensils that you will need. Our host was kind enough to leave some coffee to help with the jet lag the next morning! There are 3 very large rooms, each of which contains a double bed and a twin bed. You can easily fit 3 people per room. The bathrooms are large and the shower pressure was wonderful. Two of three bedrooms have a small terrace. There is a spacious dining and living room between the bedrooms. WiFi was readily available. After another 10 steps, you will find a large terrace with a big plunge pool, 8 lounge chairs, and 2 sitting areas to view the large expanse of the Meditteranean sea. It was the perfect place to sit both day and night. There were plenty of lights available as well as candles available should you need that. There is a small lemon grove with a hammock as well. We were incredibly happy with the service and the location of the villa. Our hosts were attentative to our every need and were quick to respond to any of our requests. There is a great restaurant about a 2 minute walk from the villa (La Moressa) and the supermarket (Tutto o Tutti) is about a 3 minute walk from the villa. The supermarket was well supplied and we were able to get everything we needed, from wine and cheese to paper towels. We loved walking around and looking at the local churches and found the people to be friendly and helpful. It was the perfect location and easily accessible for all of our activities. We look forward to staying there again for our next Amalfi coast adventure!

Villa Giampa is large, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Villa Giampa is large, clean and comfortable. The pool is very refreshing. We loved our amazing views. There are many steps but I got stronger as the days passed.

The owners were very responsive.

We loved our stay because we wanted to be in a real Italian village. We loved the people in the community and the church bells ringing was so ethereal. It was a vacation that will stay in our hearts for a long time.

Summer In Italy did a wonderful job. They informed and were always polite and attentive. I would use them again.

Villa Giampa is a fantastic place for a stay on the Amalfi Coast

  • 5 of 5

Villa Giampa is a fantastic place for a stay on the Amalfi Coast.

We had everything we needed and there was plenty of outdoor and indoor living areas for 2 families. Views were amazing.

Luca, our host was brilliant.

I would highly recommend a stay at Villa Giampa.
