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.

Praiano.

Expect the climb up to the town streets.

Don't rent a car. Nowhere to park.

We used a driver, so no issue.

  • 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.

  • 4 of 5

Overall:

Very good experience.

Enjoyed Most:

The views are fantastic! Each night after buying a bottle of local wine we would watch the sun set over Capri. What a great experience

Enjoyed Least:

There was not a lot of hot water; to turn it on you had to go outside to flip a switch in a panel

Surrounding Area:

There are some great restaurants in Praiano and it is centrally located between Positano and Amalfi. The church within walking distance was beautiful. The bus was super-convenient as it is located at the top of the steps.

Nearby Events or Locales:

You are in Praiano and it has everything you need - groceries, butcher, alcohol, restaurants, and a few bars, as well.

Tips or Restaurants:

Bring good walking shoes and a water bottle for refills !

We had an awesome time! Everything we hoped for--privacy, quiet, and the most amazing views!...

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

We had an awesome time! Everything we hoped for--privacy, quiet, and the most amazing views!

Enjoyed Most:

Everything! The view was fabulous!

Enjoyed Least:

The steps....however, no one is ever prepared! But we knew they were coming. And sometimes it was just fun to see how many you could do without a break!

Surrounding Area:

The people were great and very friendly. Luca, who owned the grocery store was on top of everything in town. If you need it he is your man! From matches, to drivers and fabulous local wine!

Nearby Events or Locales:

The nearest town was Positano, and it was not within walking distance. A quick bus ride is all you need, and a little patience! The buses to all other towns were impossible...over-crowded and could not stop and pick up in our town Praiano. Easier to catch a cab, but pricey. Did not know there was a cab company in Praiano until last day. But again, Luca was our man.

Tips or Restaurants:

I would suggest that if you want to do any excursions...Capri, etc. Plan ahead so you don't spend so much time figuring things out while you're there. Maybe go every other day so you truly enjoy this beautiful property.

Directions:

We used a driver...and the stop you gave us was perfect! Let people know to have the porters waiting upon your arrival..goes quicker and they are so nice. And it was only 5 euros a bag...worth its weight in gold!

Check In Out:

The owners were very accommodating. We were not leaving until later so they let us leave our bags there for an extra 2 hours and we did not have to go down to get them. The nice porters brought them up for us and stayed with them until we connected. Also, make sure more than one person is listening when going through check in as there is a lot of information!

  • 4 of 5

Overall:

Comfortable and very relaxing. Sadly the weather was not warm enough to take advantage of the lovely pool.

Enjoyed Most:

The setting is beautiful. The property is well equipped and very comfortable. Our arrival was warm and welcoming.

Enjoyed Least:

The location was probably a little too isolated for us. We would have preferred to be near a town with more restaurant options.

Surrounding Area:

All the main tourist cities were accessible on a day trip by car.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Iona is a kilometre from the house. The road is unsurfaced and up a not too steep incline.

Tips or Restaurants:

There are two restaurants in Iona. The most interesting menu is at the one in the square. The other is busier but food and service very ordinary.

Check In Out:

Check in and check out went very smoothly thank you.

It was the end of the summer and the weather unpredictable so we did not know if air-conditioning would be required or not. To be able to use it there is an additional fee of Euro 100 for the week, which we paid.

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!
