"Unbelievably gorgeous apartment that should not be missed"

We had the time of our lives. We stayed a week and wished it had been the whole summer. Francesca and her family were marvelous, the neighborhood is perfect. I want to say, don't tell anyone about this in order to keep it so unique, but really, it was incredible. Better than the pictures even.
"The Best Place in the Best Town on the amalfi Coast"

We have been to the amalfi Coast 5 times for a total of 8 weeks renting various villas. Casa Candice is our favorite place to stay. It is perfect for walking the hills, touring the coast by bus, or just sitting on the patio soaking up the sun and watching the lights go on in Positano.. The owner's could not be more delightful and helpful. Our next trip will likely be in 2012 and we will stay there again.

We were met by the owners - very friendly family - and were given a
comprehensive tour of the apartment and wine and fruit welcome gift - much
appreciated. The apartment was perfect - clean with great facilities. The
verandah was amazing - the view is one of the best on the Amalfi Coast -
looking out to Capri - unbelievable sunsets and looking back to Positano for
the night lights. We found Praiano the best place to stay - just away from the
business and tourism of Positano, we were able to relax and enjoy the
experience of the local village. The apartment is right at the bus stop - so
traveling around the coast was easy. The local restaurants are superb and a
drink at the local bars in the evening is good value. We had a great time at
Casa Candice and would recommend to out friends.

We cannot imagine any more wonderful place than Casa Candice for a holiday stay. The view was exquisite with views to Capri when it was clear. We were close to several good restaurants and easy access to the sentieri del degli (footpath of the gods) as well as the swimming beach below, and a general store for food. The apartment was wonderful and centrally located, the beds were comfortable, excellent amenities for cooking supplies, everything that anyone could want. The owners were helpful. There is nothing I would change. We loved it.

We found the process of renting a property through Summer in Italy to be straightforward. We received a professional and efficient service from the agency. We were given clear instructions on how to reach Casa Candice and on arrival we were met by the owners of the apartment who were most helpful and even gave us a wecome bottle of vino!
The apartment was as described in the advertising and was immaculate and well equipped. The view from the terrace was stunning. A regular bus services the Amalfi Coast from Sorrento to Amalfi and the stop was just down the road, a very short distance away. Other services were in the small village also so we were able to buy provisions locally and go to local restaurants. There were two bars close by where we could have our morning caffe and pastry!
All in all a wonderful experience!

We had a wonderful time at Casa Candice. The view from the terrace is out of this world! The booking was easy through Summers in Italy. We booked because the apartment had great puctures on the website, had 2 bedrooms & a kitchen so we could cook if we wanted to & a washing machine, allowing us to pack lighter. Our hosts had the apartment ready to go, well-cleaned and stocked with a few grocery items.
We chose Praiano because we didn't want to stay in a big city, we wanted a quiet village. The bus allowed us to go all along the Amalfi coast area.
We would reccommend to Casa Candice to anyone wanting a fantastic vacation!

Spent a week in Casa Candice at Easter and just loved it!! Great standard of accommodation and right on the main street of Praiano. You really felt you were experiencing the true Italy. The views from the balcona were amazing - so diffferent at various times of the day. To wake up and look out to Capri was perfect.

Our apartment was so perfect. The 2bdrms and 2 baths were so nice. Having a full kitchen to cook our meals and the balcony to sit out and enjoy them along with a fabulous view. What could be better. This apartment is in a great location. Close to the market, great pizza across the street and close to the bus stop. The owners of the apartment are incredible folks. You will love them. I hope you treat yourself to this beautiful apartment. We loved it!

This villa was perfect for our first trip to Italy. It's right on the main road so you have access to all the restaurants and shops. Upon our arrival, they owners were so nice and they left a bottle of wine and lemons for us on the table. The views were spectacular from the entire terrace. Because it was just my husband and I on the trip, sitting out on the terrace was fun because you could watch the busy main road. Watching the buses drive along that main road was funny. We never cooked in the villa and instead ate out at one of the restaurants for most of the meals, but the amenities seemed adequate.

Casa Candice in Praiano was a wonderful base from which to experience the coast from Positano to Amalfi and even travel further afield to Vesuvius, Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri. Friendly locals, great food, views to die for and lovely walks. Everyone should visit for at least a week once in a lifetime and Casa Candice is highly recommended.

A beautiful home with every possible amenity at your disposal. The location of Casa Candice was perfect for exploring the Amalfi Coast and the owners were lovely, helpful people, as were all of the locals in this wonderful Italian city. We had a great time in this house and would absolutely recommend it to families or indiviuals traveling in Italy.
