Overview

Praiano is a small fishing village made up of houses scattered along the ridge of Monte S. Angelo which ends in the intense blue sea, at Capo Sottile. In an inlet is Marina di Praia, a small and charming beach surrounded by the houses and boats of the fishermen and by small, unpretentious restaurants that attract you with their simplicity. It is considered Positano’s little sister with a similar beach and church, but not anything like so inundated with a flood of travellers and if you climb up or down the main coastal road you will find a natural village with incredible views, undisturbed by the rumble of coaches and cars. Lemon groves and vineyard terraces follow the irregularity of the terrain that slopes gently down to the little coves where the ancient Saracen towers stand guarding against these days improbable enemies. The favourable climate, the pure air, the beautifully blue sea, the cordiality of the people and improving tourist facilities are just few of the reasons that make Praiano an increasingly desirable place to spend one’s holiday. Set in one of the most beautiful panoramic areas of Praiano, Villa Angelo occupy the entire ground floor of a two-story building . It has two beautiful and large private gardens which offer a wide horizon of sky, sea and coast. The blue Mediterranean sea is just below the property; the water can be reached by walking along a communal staircase of about 140 steps which leads to a sunbathing terrace on cliff. The house is bright, spacious and comfortable , with high ceiling vaults and elegant and welcoming furnishings. The floors are tiled with shimmering majolica tiles. To stay at Villa Angelo a car is not necessary. The stop for the buses that go to Positano, Sorrento , Amalfi or to the other coastal towns , can be found within 400 meters away from the house ( included the 160 stairway steps) .

Villa Angelo is the most beautifully appointed property, in a location of outstanding beauty overlooking the Mediterranean on the Amalfi Coast. There is even a small garden with fresh tomatoes, figs, aubergines, onions and garlic available for the occupants! Wouldnt recommend renting a car - roads are chaotic, public transport is great and parking costs 15 euros a day, a 10 minute walk away. Fitness is essential - there are 170 steps from the road down to the villa and another 240 from the villa down to the little bat where you can swim (off rocks) in the sea. Having a private pool and beautiful garden, all overlooking the fabulous view, added huge value to our holiday.
