About the property

Max Beds: 4, Min Beds: 4, Double Beds: 2, Single Beds: 0, Baths: 2, Reference: 14469

This beautiful two bedroom apartment in Praiano adds a little Greek flavor to your Italian holiday. Pure white walls accented with blue furnishings and decorations welcome two couples or a small family to relax and enjoy the spacious home and the even more spectacular views. With two terraces, one with an attractive garden and the other with a private pool, you will have a hard time leaving your home to explore the coast. Walk down to the sea or visit the nearby towns of Positano, Sorrento and Amalfi.

(400 m2) The apartment is reached by walking along a pedestrian street of about 400 meters and includes approximately 160 steps. It occupies the entire ground floor of a two-story building and has two large private gardens which offer wide views of the sea. The sea can be reached by walking along a communal staircase of about 250 steps which leads to a sunbathing terrace.

The first terrace (240 m2) is at the entrance of the property. It is partly shaded by a pergola with a bamboo roof and is equipped with built-in stone white benches, armchairs and a sofa around a low coffee table. A dining table with chairs and a BBQ are also available.

The second terrace (160 m2), is situated nine steps below the main terrace. It is equipped with a pool, a sun umbrella, a table, deck chairs and an external shower. Part of the garden is planted with seasonal vegetables, which are available to guests.

(110 m2)

Ground Floor: From the garden, you enter directly into the sitting and dining room. The furnishings include two sofas, a large flat-screen satellite television, a dining table which can accommodate up to six guests and air conditioning/heating units.

The kitchen is equipped with a six-burner gas cooker, an electric oven, a refrigerator with freezer, a microwave oven, a dishwasher, an Italian-style coffee maker and other small appliances. There is a table to seat four guests. From the kitchen a French door leads to the terrace. From one side of the living room, a small corridor leads to the two beautiful white-washed bedrooms, each with a queen-size bed (160x180) and direct access to the garden through French doors.

There are two bathrooms located in the corridor, opposite of the bedrooms. The first bathroom is equipped with a washbasin, a toilet, a shower, a washing machine and an air conditioning/heating unit. The second and larger bathroom is equipped with a washbasin, a toilet and a large Jacuzzi bathtub and an air conditioning/heating unit.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

The villa was perfect. It had everything necessary for an amazing week and beautiful views!!

Enjoyed Most:

The view of the sea and the calming clanging of the church bell nearby.

Enjoyed Least:

Steps! Soooo many steps. And parking was far away.

Surrounding Area:

Praiano is a beautiful town. The local people are warm and very kind.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Positano was a short shuttle bus ride away. Positano is beautiful beyond words!

Tips or Restaurants:

Bring bug spray. Evening promised a fleet of mosquitoes. Our favorite restaurant next to the villa was Tramonto de'Oro. It's a beautiful cliff side hotel/restaurant with breathtaking views. The owner and her family are always present and are so friendly. They go to each table to learn about their guests. Such a nice family.

Directions:

I was given a meeting place to follow the designated villa coordinator. She looked out for my car and we followed her to the parking lot. Parking is limited and expensive!

Check In Out:

Be sure to hire a porter to handle luggage on check in and check out. Many many steps to navigate with luggage!!

People living upstairs.

Close to town. Easy to get groceries, close to restaurants.

Eat at La Strada. Delicious.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Overall, the location and the view are perfect for anyone looking to relax on the Amalfi coast. Praiano is a small, quiet town that feels very authentic. The villa is absolutely stunning and we had an amazing time staying there for our honeymoon.

Enjoyed Most:

The view of the Amalfi Coast is incredible from this villa, especially when viewed from the private pool and lawn chair area on the property!

Enjoyed Least:

We had some disruptions as the villa owner's parents live upstairs, and they had men on the roof for an entire day during our stay replacing their A/C units. This detracted from our privacy and it was noisy.

Surrounding Area:

The villa is located at a central location in Praiano, which is close to many of the amazing restaurants within walking range. The bus stop at the top of the stairs was convenient to travel to other places along the coast.

Nearby Events or Locales:

The nearest towns were Positano and Amalfi. Neither were within walking distance.

Tips or Restaurants:

We would highly recommend the San Gennaro pizzeria that is very close to the villa. The local wine there is incredible and the pizza was the best out of everywhere we tried in Italy.

Directions:

The check in process involved a local representative meeting us close to the villa, and bring us to it. This was seamless and there were no problems.

Great experience....

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Great experience.

Enjoyed Most:

The view and the outside areas.

Enjoyed Least:

Only one shower.

Surrounding Area:

Loved the peace and the solitude of Praiano compared to the surrounding towns. Loved the stairs and walkways.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Praiano.

Tips or Restaurants:

Expect the climb up to the town streets.

Don't rent a car. Nowhere to park.

Directions:

We used a driver, so no issue.

Check In Out:

The check in and check out process was easy in Praiano.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

We found a new home away from home! The view was breathtaking, the town was quaint, the location was centrally located and the house was well appointed. The villa provided the most incredible leg of our vacation; we were in Italy for 3 weeks and spent time in Rome, Umbria Venice as well. Our week's stay at Greco allowed us to really experience the Amalfi Coast and all it had to offer. Our kids 10 and 12, enjoyed the pool, a comfortable place for downtime and a home cooked meals most nights. The house provided many memorable moments that will last a lifetime.

Enjoyed Most:

The privacy, pool and view.

Enjoyed Least:

The bathroom with no ventilation was a little musty smelling so everyone ended up using the other bathroom.

Surrounding Area:

Praiano is centrally located on the Amalfi Coast which made it easy to travel from town to town.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Praiano, yes.

Tips or Restaurants:

If you rent a car (which we wouldn't advise because the roads are very narrow, there is limited parking and traffic is horrific) make arrangements for parking ahead of time.

Directions:

The meeting place on our direction sheet was different than where we ended up meeting our agent. We called from the car but it was hard to understand where we were supposed to meet.

Check In Out:

Use the porter service to have your bags taken to the villa. The 186 steps to get to the villa provided great exercise but it's well worth it to pay 5 Euros per bag to have them delivered.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

My family loved this place from the time we entered the gate! My 15 and 11 year old kids found their way to the hammock very quickly, followed by the pool... The view from the patio was amazing, the pool was a bit small but was just fine for our needs. The interior was clean and well maintained. This one of those places that is better than the pictures you see before you visit.

Enjoyed Most:

The views and decor of the home!

Enjoyed Least:

The climb up to the street was not fun, so this took some getting use to. We decided this was going to be a once-a-day trip only!

A nice find was the local grocer delivers for free and the pizzeria/restaurant would meet us halfway for delivery.

Surrounding Area:

Praiano has good options for dinner. We never had a bad meal and we tried at least 4 places there. The bus stopped right in front our street so that was convenient for a trip to Positano which was only 15 minutes by bus.

Tips or Restaurants:

Pack lightly if you can and hire the porters to bring your bags to/from the villa for 5 Euros per bag. It's the best value, trust me! Il Pirata Restaurant, was great; Che Bonta Gastronomia, too. We ate here and they delivered half way to us. A Puteca Minimarket is also good--they have a little of everything and they deliver.

Check In Out:

Check in with Filomena was great; she was waiting for us when our car arrived, ordered the porters for us and showed us all the features of the villa.

Map

This apartment is situated below the main street of Praiano, a small fishing village made up of houses scattered along the ridge of Monte S. Angelo down to the Mediterranean Sea. A small well-stocked supermarket is a short distance from the villa and about 400 meters away you will find coffee bars with internet facilities, a tourist information center, restaurants, a post office, shopping, and more! Visit Marina di Praia, a small and charming pebble beach surrounded by the houses and boats of local fishermen. It is dotted with small, authentic restaurants not to be missed by any seafood lover. If you do not have a problem with climbing steps, visit the small, delightful beach of “Gavitella”, located at the bottom of a small rocky inlet. The beach houses a restaurant with beach facilities, open during the summer season. La Gavitella can be reached either on foot, walking along a path that includes about 350 steps, or by sea using the local ferry service!
