Best view in all of Praiano!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful property. Perched above the charming town of Praiano, this may be the highest house in town. The view is absolutely spectacular! Be aware there is a small price to pay for that amazing view. It is roughly 300 steps from the road below. (Not recommended for anyone with mobility issues). All of Praiano, and any town on the Amalfi Coast is a maze of stairs and alley ways, so navigating and getting anywhere can be a bit of a challenge without GPS or a good sense of direction. All of that aside, the home and grounds were beautiful and extremely well maintained. Rose bushes, lemon trees, flowers and a small vegetable garden were found on the three tiered land of the property. There is a large first floor patio with lounge chairs, dining table, large umbrellas for shade, a charcoal grill, and an outdoor fireplace. This was the perfect spot for relaxing and taking in the coastal view and happenings within the town below. On the second floor there was another patio connecting the two bedrooms with chairs. The interior of the home was immaculate. The first floor consists of a living room with fireplace and TV, dining room with seating for six, a fully stocked kitchen with all necessary appliances and utensils and a first floor bathroom with adjoining laundry. The second floor housed the two bedrooms, one with a queen and one with two twin beds and the second bathroom. You will find air conditioner units in both bedrooms as well as the living room.

We booked with Maria, who kept us informed from prebooking to checkout and was available for any questions. On arrival, we met with Antonio who speaks both English and Italian and was extremely kind and helpful, offering to carry up our luggage and find us parking for our vehicle. He explained a few details about the property and recomended ways to get around town as well as places to eat and shop, leaving his phone number should we have any needs or questions.. Upon checkout, we called Antonio and were met at the door to return the keys and for him to assist again with our luggage. His lovely mother who I believe cleans the property also greeted us with a smile and a few pastries as we passed on the stairs down to the road. Very kind.

I would highly recommend this property if you are looking for a secluded and clean home with a view to remember!

Beautiful View!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property and a great host! The house was clean, spacious, and had stunning views. Please note that there are a lot of stairs to get to this property, so be prepared for some exercise! (This is pretty common for most properties in this area)

Incredible view in Praiano

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at Silvia's house in Praiano. It was peaceful and comfy and had the most beautiful views you can imagine from the two terraces. Antonino was wonderful getting us settled in, and we had everything we needed in the house. Keep in mind that the house is 300 steps from the upper road in town, but almost 700, yes 700, steps from the lower road which is where most restaurants and gathering spots are. I highly recommend taking the bus or a cab to the upper road rather than trying to tackle the 700, which we did the first evening (and never again!). We really loved the home though and it was totally worth it to climb the 300 steps to get a real sense of life on the Amalfi coast and the gorgeous sea view. Recommended: La Strada and La Brace restaurants, Bar del Sole and the unbelievably lovely Plaghia boat tour of the coast. We already can't wait to go back!

Million dollar views - 300 steps later

  • 4 of 5

Views and home were both amazing! Antonino was incredibly helpful upon arrival - thorough in his tour of the home and in providing activities and suggestions on things to do in while in Praiano. More than enough space for a group of 4, could easily accommodate 2 others using the cot and couch. Home was fully-equipped including a nice welcome bottle of wine.

I took off one star for two reasons - #1, the steps (300 to the main road and 700 in total to the nearest beach). We knew about the 300 steps upfront but you really can't understand the impact to your vacation until you're walking them 2-4x a day in the heat. We're all very fit (NYers who walk all day, every day), and it was still a challenge. The second reason is for the lack of communication we received once our stay was over. I left something behind and Maria has yet to reply to my messages. Antonino has been helping to organize the return of my belonging, but as the manager of the property, I've reached out to her directly several times and have yet to hear back. She was super responsive when we booked and up until check-in, but went radio silent after that.

Overall, we had an amazing time in Praiano and highly recommend this town if you're visiting Amalfi!

Beautiful, private home with stunning views of the coast.

  • 5 of 5

This property was well worth the "built-in" exercise program previously mentioned in a separate review. While it was challenging to get up & down the stairs with two large, heavy suite cases and backpacks, we were assisted by Maria the entire way up and greeted with a complimentary bottle of water & wine. Without luggage it was very manageable as long as you are in fair physical shape. I would not recommend for people who have difficulty walking long distances.

The home is spacious and well-cleaned. The property manager "Antonino" speaks very good English and provides numerous documents describing bus routes, restaurants recommendations, etc. which was very helpful & appreciated. The shower was one of the larger & warmer ones we enjoyed while traveling around the different regions of Italy. The local beach is very simple to get to and was one of our favorite parts of the trip, along with the delicious fresh pasta & seafood in town. If you are bothered by ants, I would suggest packing some traps, but other than that we had no complaints. It is a hidden gem and we hope to be fortunate enough to visit again in the future!

Very clean with an outstanding view!

  • 5 of 5

Truly what we needed, to get there and not leave! Our days were filled with beautiful weather so we spent our time on that perfect deck. Most reviews of this property mention the stairs.....so yes, those stairs! My only recommendation would be to ask for assistance in stopping at store to pick up what you'll need BEFORE you make that climb because once you get up there, the last thing you'll want to do is walk back down and back up again!!! You are able to hire a valet to carry your luggage up the stairs, so take advantage of that😊? The house has everything you would need, even programs in english👍?🏻? The price paid was very reasonable, and we would return there again! Thank you Maria and Antonio!
