Casa Costantina is an ancient house of Praiano, with a wide and spectacular view of the sea and of the coast, located in the heart of the historical center of Praiano, which is an ancient fishermen's village located halfway between Amalfi and Positano (more or less 7 km/4 miles both from Amalfi and Positano), and made up of a cluster of small white houses that cling to the rocky cliff, sheer above the sea.
Seen from a distance, it seem that the houses have been built one above the other, following the contour of the steep coast. When you take a closer look you find out that they are separated by thriving gardens and vegetable gardens dug into the side of the cliff. They are reached along narrow alleys and picturesque "scalinatelle" (stairways cut into the cliff), which seem to reach for the sky or dive straight into the sea.
The area of Praiano where Casa Costantina is located is inhabited by authentic locals, who live their peaceful life framed by the splendid natural beauty of the coast, of the sky and of the sea, far away from the noise of traffic.
Casa Costantina is the right place to stay if you are looking for the most authentic charm of the Amalfi Coast , just out of the frantic holiday life of the most crowded areas. It is also possible to take part in the numerous cultural and folkloristic happenings that take place in the area throughout the year. Among these there are the famous classical music concerts and festivals that take place in Ravello (at approximately 10 km/6 miles from Praiano).
The terrace is 50 square meters (540 square feet) large. It is partly shaded by a wood roof. It is equipped with tables, chairs, a sun umbrella, a deck chair and sun loungers. From the terrace you will enjoy a broad view of the sea, of Praiano and the coast of Amalfi.
The furnishings of the living room are simple. The furnishings include a divan that unfolds into a double bed. The dining table can accommodate four guests. In this room you will find a television. From the living room you will be able to enter the terrace with a view of the sea and of the coast of Amalfi through a French door. The room also has a small window overlooking the terrace.

Casa Costantina was perfect for us. We were looking for a peaceful retreat that was yet within easy distance of the beach and of hiking trails. We were not so interested in night life. The apartment is well maintained and equipped and the terrace was amazing. We ate almost all of our meals outdoors overlooking the town and the sea. It is a climb from the town but there are buses available. Our hosts were super-friendly and helpful and speak excellent English. We would definitely book there again.

Casa Constantina has the sense of living in an eagle's nest, high above the sea in the tiny village of Alta Praiano. The apartment is pristine, spacious and freshly renovated. It has an enormous terrace with views falling away beneath of tranquil gardens, the magnificent piazza of the church of San Gennaro, and tiny laneways and steps leading in every direction eventually to the sea.
The owners of the apartment are gracious, mannered and welcoming.
Alto Praiano is high above the road winding along the Amalfi Coast, and there is a little bus which regularly arrives in the small piazza just below the apartment and takes its passengers around Praiano and to Positano.
To stay at Casa Constantina is a blissful experience.
