Quiet village that climbs to the famous 'praianesi stairs', full of hanging gardens and villas, but also the artistic elements of a story made of shrines, chapels and picturesque passages ranging up to Punta Bells and the 'mythical' Faraglioni Capri. The churches of San Luca and the church of San Gennaro with their colored roofing tiles stand out against the blue sky praianese. Give them an unforgettable charming courtyards and boundless.

Exactly As Described!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 5 nights in June 2016. We are a family of four, two adults and two teenagers. The apartment was perfect for us. We were very happy with our decision to stay in Praiano instead of Positano or Amalfi. It is easy to get to other the other towns, but we appreciated the quiet and calm of Praiano at the end of the day.

You can easily walk to several restaurants from the apartment. We especially enjoyed La Strada and Che Bonta (dine in or take away). There is a grocery store close by where we shopped every day. The tourist information center is close as well. We found everyone in the town to be welcoming and friendly.

The view from the apartment is amazing! The apartment itself is spacious and clean. We used the washing machine twice and there is a drying rack that we set out on the private patio for our clothes to dry.

Luigi was very easy to work with. Although we never met him, he was always quick to respond to my emails and texts. I definitely recommend House of Lemons as I know we'll return again.

Wonderful place, wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed here for 6 nights, and absolutely loved it. The apartment is clean, comfortable, spacious, and very accessible. It has a beautiful view of the coast and Positano. It is right off the main Amalfi coast highway so you don't have to climb up or down, and walking distance to shops, restaurants, beach, and right at the bus stop to everywhere. Unlike most properties in Amalfi coast, it has an elevator to the apartment so you don't have to drag you baggage up so many uneven steps. It's a prefect place if you want to visit other towns but avoid the touristy crowds and traffic in Positano. This is the next town over from Positano.

The owner, Luigi and his family, are very helpful, courteous, and friendly. They make sure you are comfortable and help you with planning your visit. If you are driving with your own car, let them know ahead of time so that they can arrange a parking space. Consider taking public transport to here since driving to/from here is a big challenge and time consuming during high season.

Beautiful apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I stayed here for 5 nights in September and absolutely loved it. The apartment was immaculate, with wonderful views and everything you could need, right near the village center. Luigi, the owner, was very kind and well-organized. The apartment even has a lift, which is great if you need a break from all the stairs! Our only problem was we wished we had stayed longer.... We hope to return soon :)

Ein toller Urlaub an der Amalfiküste

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten die erste Septemberwoche in Praiano. Die Ferienwohnung war dank der guten Beschreibung durch den Vermieter leicht zu finden, die Begrüßung sehr freundlich.

Wir sind froh gewesen, den Vermieter vorab nach einem Parkplatz zu fragen, den er für uns dann organisiert hatte. Parkmöglichkeiten sind an der Amalfiküste sehr rar. Unseren Mietwagen durften wir auf dem Grundstück einer netten Signora abstellen, unweit vom "House of Lemons" entfernt.

Die Wohnung machte einen sehr hochwertigen Eindruck und war mit allen Annehmlichkeiten ausgestattet. Es fehlte uns an nichts :-). In natura war sie sogar noch schöner, als die Bilder hier vermuten ließen. Den grandiosen Ausblick von der Terrasse auf Meer und Positano muß man selber gesehen haben, dass können Fotos gar nicht so zum Ausdruck bringen.

Der Kontakt zu Luigi ist sehr freundlich gewesen, ab und an standen kleine Aufmerksamkeiten wie Tomaten samt Basilikum aus dem eigenen Garten und Feigen vor der Wohnungstür.

Wir hatten den "Luxus", mit einem kleinen Aufzug die Ferienwohnung zu erreichen. Zu Fuß sind es ca. 50 Treppenstufen gewesen.

Wir haben eine tolle Urlaubswoche in Praiano genossen und können das House of Lemons gern weiterempfehlen.

Im Ristorante "La Brace" direkt im Haus haben wir sowohl köstlich gespeist, als auch leckere Pizza mit nach oben genommen.

Viele Grüße von David, Mandy & Tobi

Ein Sommer an der Amalfiküste

  • 5 of 5

In diesem Sommer verbrachten wir (3 Personen )in der Unterkunft "House of Lemons" 2 Wochen. Zustand und Ausstattung waren ausgezeichnet und wie auf den Bildern dargestellt. Auch die Lage der Wohnung entsprach unseren Vorstellungen. Allerdings könnte die Anfahrt besser beschrieben werden. Ansonsten war alles vorbildlich und wird würden die Wohnung sofort wieder buchen.

Appartamento grazioso e confortevole

  • 5 of 5

Appartamento molto grazioso e confortevole.

Sono stato con la mia famiglia ( io,moglie e  2 figli ) in questa "casa dei limoni" di Praiano.Un appartamento davvero bello, arredato con gusto, dotato di aria condizionata ed arredato con molta cura dai proprietari, persone gentilissime.Non dimentico certo di commentare la vista mare che si gode da tutto l'appartamento e dal balcone, vista a 180 gradi sulla costa, con a destra Positano ed al centro, sullo sfondo, i faraglioni di Capri.

Casa posta esattamente a meta' strada rispetto alla Costiera Amalfitana, quindi posizione strategica per poter visitare i migliori paesi della Costiera stessa, compresi Amalfi e Ravello.Vacanza di una settimana ad inizio luglio con piccola raccolta di limoni direttamente dal giardino, che funge anche da solarium.

Come su tutta la costiera, vi e' la difficoltà di posteggiare l'auto, ma tutto sommato non e' così difficile trovare posto, persino gratis.

Ora due considerazioni oggettive, la prima "brutta", vi sono 70 gradini per arrivare al piano casa, che per la zona sono anche pochi,  ma la seconda considerazione e' che vi e' l' ascensore, si avete capito bene, un bellissimo ascensore scavato nella roccia che vi porta direttamente in casa...........

Che dire ora.......buone vacanze a tutti Voi.

Owner's Response: Sono molto contento che la Casa sia piaciuta. Nella ristrutturazione e nell'arredamento io è mia Moglie ci siamo comportati come se stessimo preparando Una casa per noi. Trovare persone come Lei che Capiscono ciò' è' per noi motivo di orgoglio. Praiano e' un piccolo borgo di pescatori, distante ma Al tempo stesso vicino, a due mostri sacri del turismo Quali Positano ed Amalfi.
