Great location, excellent host. Casa Alfonsina is a beautiful home located perfectly on the cliffs of Praiano. Exceptional views and easy access to activity (Positano just a quick ride away). Everything went smoothly with arrival and departure.

Summer In Italy provided expedient services to locate the perfect rental for us. I was extremely happy with your services.

Absolutely beautiful views, great location, quiet and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful views, great location, quiet and comfortable. The market and center of town is within walking distance. We love Praiano and would definitely stay at Casa Alfonsina.

Teresa [the owner] greeted us and gave us a tour of how to use everything. She even had a bowl of beautiful lemons. We found everything to be very comfortable, clean and accommodating. Thank you!

Summer In Italy was great to work with for our home for the week! It is an excellent company to work with. Any questions I had were answered in a very timely manner. I was given great recommendations regarding tours, cooking school, and car service. I will definitely use Summer In Italy in the future!

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Alfonsina is just beautiful! Praiano is quite, less crowded and easy to walk around in. There were about 150 to 200 steps down to the town center where there is a market, butcher shop, restaurant, coffee bar, and various shops.The home was very well equipped, comfortable beds, great kitchen and amazing view from all the porch areas. Teresa was at the Casa to greet us upon our arrival. She showed us around and explain how to use the appliances, gave us various information about town and even had a beautiful bowl of lemons for us. Our stay for the week was wonderful and I we would highly recommended Casa Alfonsina.

Casa Alfonsina was a dream vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Casa Alfonsina was a dream vacation home. We spent the entire week marveling at our luck in being able to stay at this villa. The terrace views are magnificent and the villa is spacious and well-appointed. We would love to come back!

Summer In Italy has been a great resource. The people were in touch all through the process of selecting and booking a villa, and provided helpful information about transfers, what to expect at the villa, communication with the non-English-speaking owner, and they make sure we knew we could contact them at any time with problems and questions. We do not speak Italian and had not previously traveled in Italy. We wanted a vacation with complete freedom to do what we wanted to do, but with back-up support. We felt confident that the Summer In Italy staff would be there if we needed help.
