We enjoyed Casa Alfonsina very much

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed Casa Alfonsina very much. The view is terrific and overall we enjoyed our stay at the villa.

Access is difficult via all the steps, because we did not have a car, we endured the steps several times a day. We managed them well but they can be difficult for people with disabilities.

We found Summer in Italy terrific to work with and will recommend you in the future.

We loved our stay in Casa Alfonsina in the summer of 2013

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Casa Alfonsina in the summer of 2013!

We were a family of 6 and we had more than enough room to enjoy our week long stay without getting in each other's way. The kitchen was great to work in with everything that you needed and we enjoyed the large fridge with ice maker.

The view from Casa Alfonsina is absolutely breathtaking! We enjoyed many of our meals on the extremely large outdoor terrace and also enjoyed beautiful sunsets in the evenings. We loved the peacefulness of Praiano and found everyone to be so very friendly. It was close enough to Positano to do day trips and to other places as well without it being too busy.

We would highly recommend Casa Alfonsina to others and we hope to have a return visit very soon. Thank you to Ms. Teresa for sharing your beautiful home with us!

We were extremely pleased with choosing Summer In Italy to book our stay in Italy. All of the staff at Summer In Italy were so very helpful and responded to all of the questions we had with regards to our villa. The site in general is wonderful with so much useful information to help people out when booking their Italian vacation. It made everything so much more enjoyable knowing that we actually had someone to answer any questions that we may have. I can't say enough good things about Summer In Italy and have already recommended you to others looking to plan their Italian vacations. I will definitely use the Summer In Italy site again for the near future!

Casa Alfonsina was very spacious and accommodated our family of 6 very comfortably

  • 4 of 5

Casa Alfonsina was very spacious and accommodated our family of 6 very comfortably. The views and the large terrace are gorgeous!

The owner went above and beyond to make our stay perfect by arranging for parking in a neighbors garage when we arrived at dusk and had no where to park.

Thank you Melanie for all you time in helping us find this villa... In the end, this couldn't have been more perfect for our family. We loved the views and the central location! Grazie mille!
