Tramonto, meaning sunset in Italian, is an ideal setting from which to witness the regularly spectacular local sunsets. Imagine the sun going down while you sit on a lovely terrace set in a lush garden, laden with flowers and trees, with a cold glass of prosecco, and the mountains of the Amalfi Coast on the horizon. What could be more sweet! This spacious, self-catering apartment in Praiano, decorated in a simple and rustic style, sits within just such an idyllic setting.
The Tramonto villa offers you everything you might need for your Italian holiday, including atmosphere and serenity. The living/dining room has a large table from where you can enjoy your meals while gazing out the French doors. As they say, "butta la pasta", meaning throw some pasta in a pot and create your own little trattoria! There is a small but well-equipped kitchen which also has a washing machine and is separate from the dining room. The kitchen is quite charming, with its lemon-yellow tiles and authentic Italian style. It is connected to the living/dining room through an arched doorway, making for a nice open-plan area.
This apartment consists of two bedrooms: one with a double bed and the other with two single beds; and two bathrooms, one with a shower and the other with a bathtub. There is an attached modern bathroom with a shower, plus a second full bathroom as well. The master bedroom is bright and airy and is situated so as to let the rays of the setting sun stream in through the window. The second bedroom has two twin beds and offers access to the side terrace. And if you find that you just cannot take one more minute of the glorious coastal beauty, you can relax on the leather loveseat in front of the television. The lounge has a TV and a sofa bed which can accommodate an extra guest for 80 euros per week.
Tramonto is situated close to everything you may need: from public transport to the nearby grocery stores. The main Church piazza is a hive of activity in summer and you will enjoy sitting and relaxing here with Positano and the ocean as your backdrop. Close to the apartment is a bus stop where SITA buses run quite regularly in the summer months. These buses can take you to any of the neighboring villages along the coast. You also have the option of an internal shuttle bus service which takes you all around Praiano and, in summer, runs back and forth from Positano until midnight. From Positano you can board a ferry, hydrofoil or jet boat to take you to the islands of Capri, Ischia, or the ports of Sorrento, Amalfi and Salerno. Or you may prefer to hire a small boat to go to any of the magnificent beaches dotted along the rocky shoreline. For large groups, you could also choose to rent the nearby apartments Idillio or Li Galli.
