(Minimum of one week rental required) Praiano Terrace is a very comfortable apartment nestled on the rocky cliffs overlooking the enchanting Amalfi coastline. Located in the heart of Praiano, an ancient fishing village situated halfway between Amalfi and Positano, the home typifies the white-washed houses with matching domes which inhabit the many sloping terraces of the area. These homes perch high above the glimmering sea. This exhilarating setting is tranquilizing in its beauty.
The apartment covers the entire top floor of a two story building. It is accessible by walking 30 yards along a narrow alley and then descending a stairway o...f 25 steps leading to a large, paved patio situated at the back of the house. The lovely patio is decorated with terracotta pots with plants and furnished with a marble-topped dining table with wrought iron chairs, sun chairs and a parasol. There is also an outdoor shower and a charcoal barbecue.
A French doorway leads you from the patio into a spacious open plan living/dining room with three comfortable modern sofas, a wooden dining table for six and a TV (Italian channels only). Another sitting room has two armchairs and French windows opening out to the front terrace, offering commanding views of the sea.
Along a hallway, with built-in wardrobes, are the three cozy and restful bedrooms; two with double beds and one with twin beds. Each bedroom has French doors opening out onto the private, south facing balcony with splendid and expansive sea views.
The fourth bedroom is reached via an independent entrance and includes a double bed, wardrobe, and TV. A large bathroom with tub and enclosed shower, two washbasins, a WC, etc is situated off the corridor. A second, smaller bathroom with an open shower can be found down the hallway.
The kitchen is well-equipped with a table for four, several cabinets, a four-burner stove, an oven, a refrigerator w/freezer, a microwave oven and a dishwasher. Next to the kitchen is a utility/store room with a washing machine, another refrigerator w/freezer and a third bathroom with enclosed shower. A door provides access to the patio.
Additional amenities include ironing facilities and hairdryers, a CD player and a standard VCR player.
A food delivery service, private chef, babysitter, cot and highchair are available at an additional charge. Parking facilities can be arranged in advance at a nearby private garage located about half a mile up the hill (70 Euros/week). During the months from April to the end of October, a shuttle service is available connecting Praiano to Positano. Along the way is a delightful sandy beach call "La Praia", locally renowned for its swimming access and excellent seafood restaurants. Cafes, restaurants and shops begin at about one mile along the main coastal road. Closer in (about 100 yards) are small, local grocery shops and a bus stop which can take you to Amalfi and beyond. During the summer season, boats and hydrofoils ferry between Salerno, Amalfi, Positano, Sorrento, the islands of Capri and Ischia and the city of Naples, all providing opportunities for pleasant and fun-filled day trips.Read more
