This apartment is located in the most central location in the upper
town of Praiano. It is right across from bus stop 7, a water filling
station that provides sparkling water for 10 cents, and a great carry
out pizza place. It is a few steps away from numerous other
restaurants, two bars, and the start of the stairway to la gavitella
beach / one fire beach.
It is a 20 minute walk down the hill to the
other beach -- marina de la praia. (And not too hard at all to walk back up,
it's a gradual climb). This is the other area of restaurants in the
town. We didn't eat down there because there were so many nice options
close to us. We thought this villa was the perfect location to be in town.
The house itself is nice, a pretty typical Italian house. It has some
nice traditional tile floors. A really lovely big kitchen, all the essentials you
need to cook and lovely pottery serveware. The two second bedrooms are not particularly luxurious, and some aspects of the bathrooms are a little dated, but again, this is pretty typical of many Italian houses we have seen, and is of little importance when you open a window to the breathtaking view outside. The house has a two level terrace downstairs off the kitchen, with a covered patio table and sun chairs. This garden is beautiful, and it is very nice to have the terrace have a grass base rather than patio tiles or cement. The mosquitos were bad right at sunset, but that is the case anywhere. The house also had a beautiful patio upstairs off the main bedroom and foyer that offered the best view of the sunset. Just a lovely place to enjoy our time in Praiano.
The management company offers to pick up groceries for a small fee before your arrival. This was very nice to arrive to. There were only two of us staying here, so the house felt very large and barely lived in. With three levels and multiple terraces, not to mention the huge kitchen, I think it could easily accommodate a family without seeming too cramped.
Again, the location was fabulous. Highly recommended!
