Overview

About the property

A romantic, quiet studio in the heart of the Amalfi Coast. Fantastic holiday.

Welcome to Casa San Tommaso. A beautiful studio apartment in Praiano, situated in the heart of the world renowned Amalfi coast. Located only 7 km from the glamorous Positano and a mere 6km’s from the former sea power Amalfi, if peace, tranquility and a romantic get away is what you’re searching for then look no further.

Praiano is situated along the coast, in-between Positano and Amalfi, parallel to the sea front, above and below the windy road runs directly through this small village. Beautiful and brightly coloured villas are built in clusters and are also scattered individually over the green rugged mountain cliff’s that plummet into the deep blue Mediterranean. Buildings are built into the rock and flights of steps wind up and down between the buildings. The steps lead to the very top of the mountain and also directly into the dense sea. Dotted around are little beaches, small creeks, luminous grotto’s, a Paradise corner; for example the seashore of La Praia.

The apartment has all you need for an unforgetable stay. It's fully air conditioned, a fully equipped kitchen and a breath taking terrace over looking the coast. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more photos or have a look at our website casasantommaso.com

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I spent 2 weeks in the studio suite of Casa San Tommaso and experienced what we imagined to be the Italian life!! The setting was spectacular, early mornings having cappuccinos on the terrazza watching the sun come up....afternoons sipping a glass of wine watching the sun go down. Praiano is a lovely, friendly town, anywhere we went the locals were so willing to help and proudly either told or showed us many of their favourite sites as well. There were lovely restaurants along the main road, with the beach and beach walks below...our particular favourite was Il Piratta located on the rocks close to the ocean, sitting outside having lunch watching the many local fishermen come in with their freshly caught seafood for the restaurants and local markets or the modern cruise ships off in the distance. It was a surprisingly easy drive with our car rental from Naples to the Amalfi Coast, where that drive was a little more challenging, we, however, took the local buses to most places of interest such as Amalfi, Positano, Ravello while we were in Praiano. . There are a couple of local markets with all your cooking needs including the freshest locally grown tomatoes, basil, fennel, plus the many meats and cheeses like no other! We would recommend Casa San Tommaso to those who would like the experience only what we thought dreams were of and for years in our imaginations. We also liked being away from the many touristy places which we found to be much noisier, Praiano is a jewel in probably the most spectacular part of the world ever. We have traveled to many exotic locations around the world being in the travel industry....to us, this was the place we will look forward to coming back to one day soon. Thankyou for making our stay so enjoyable, we are forever grateful for your hospitality. Debbie and Lane Hoogendyk, West Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

A magical place and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Me and my fiance had the opportunity to stay at this wonderful apartment in Praiano in January. Sisina and Giovanna are great hosts. Sisina is very sweet and gave us all the information we needed. We had everything we could have asked for.. a kitchen, a view, a perfect location and most of all, peace and quiet. There are a nice set of stairs you have to use to access this property but it is nothing in comparison to accessing some of the other areas of this region. We love to hike so we were able to access The Path of the Gods and Monte Tre Calli from this location.. just a heads up this includes several stairs but the views are worth it! We would love to return in the fall or spring, even in January we had spring weather. What a special place, thank you for a memorable time. We will be back!!

Just right for our needs

  • 4 of 5

Nicely presented apartment for two, comfortable with all the amenities you need on a holiday, beautiful views, lovely large sunbathing/eating area. A very relaxing holiday although you definitely need to be able to do steps/walking! Pasquale was a brilliant host

Tough to beat for the price.

  • 3 of 5

The view speaks for itself. I don't know if you'll ever find a better view-to-cost ratio anywhere in the world! The positioning of the deck is perfect for catching sun from sunrise to sunset. If I could, I would rate this studio itself as a 3.5/5 or average. Just having the deck makes the whole unit a steal.

The town of Praiano truly is a gem. The nearby market was lovely, with affordable pasta/bread/cheese/meats and €2.50 bottles of wine! La Moressa is a few steps away where we had probably the best Aperol spritz of our entire Italy trip (and that's saying something!). The bus stop is very close with easy access to Amalfi and Positano.

As for the flat itself it leaves a little bit to be desired. The beds are VERY firm; definitely the most uncomfortable of our trip 19-day trip. The listing also advertises a king bed, when actually it is two twin beds pushed together. The wifi is very spotty. I had to frequently reboot the router and for our last 24 hours, it didn't work at all. If we hadn't planned ahead, this would have been a major inconvenience. Additionally, there wasn't much for basic amenities as the flat didn't have beach towels, toiletries, washing machine detergent or a microwave. Lastly, there is a €50 cleaning fee, €20 euro "utilities" fee, and €1/day local tax per person fee that is not advertised so please be aware of that. While I understand the tax, I found this very misleading and unfair, especially since no one came to clean the unit during our 5-night stay.

If you are okay with the deficiencies described above and looking for a very basic place to stay with an amazing view then do not hesitate to book!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the flat. Loved Praiano. The view from the terrace of this place is amazing. It could not be more spectacular. My wife and I used this place as our base to explore the Amalfi coast for 11 days. We took many long hikes from Praiano and when we wanted to venture out a little further, the SITA bus system was very easy to use with frequent buses so there was no need for a car. We often went to the small markets, the butcher, the fish market etc..and then prepared dinner in the flat. Good local, yet very inexpensive wine and wonderful meats and cheeses were readily available. The people of the area are some of the friendliest we have ever encountered and we felt very welcome even though we were there at a time when there were very few tourists. Giovanna was a pleasure to communicate with. She was always responsive and very helpful. We highly recommend this property.
