Your sight will go over an uninterrupted view of a wide horizon of sea and sky, enclosed on the right by a cape coverd by olive trees and on the left by a large tract of splendid coast.
The tract of coast that you will be able to admire goes from the village of Praiano, made up of little white houses which cling to a green promontory, to the ancient Watch Tower on the sea, to the elegant promontory of Cape Conca.
Looking down from the terrace you will see the coast below your feet that steeply dives into the sea. At the back of the house you will see the profile of the Lattari mountains, the mountains of the Amalfi Coast .
The air is clear, clean and perfumed by the nearby lemon groves. All around there is tranquillity and peace: you will immediately feel that this will be your favorite place to relax and allow the magic beauty that is around to charm you.
The terraces of Villino Blu are lighted, and you will find that they are a perfect place to dine under the stars, in front of the reflection of the moon in the sea.
The closest beach is the charming beach of Marina di Praia , situated in a point where a small valley dug by the erosion meets, among the high rocks, a sea of the color of the emerald.
You can walk there along a tract of the coastal road, and then taking a "scalinatella" that will take you to the Saracen watch tower by the sea. From there you will be able to take a charming downhill pedestrian alley, cut into the rock, sheer above the sea, which will take you to the beach.
Along the walk you will find a couple of small and characteristic cafes and restaurants, open in the good season, where you will be able to have breakfast or dine on the rocks above the sea.

From the moment we were met in Praiano to be taken to Villino Blu was a truly friendly, helpful experience. On arrival at the house the breathtaking location was more than I had hoped for.The house was fresh,clean and very charming,the deck overlooking the ocean and Praiano was amazing. The town itself had many places of interest including its beautiful history,location and was central to all the tourist spots of amalfi and Positano.The people were friendly and just walking around the town was a pleasure,also the cafes and restaurants were great.The best part was sitting on the balcony at sunset overlooking the ocean,watching the boats and the town of Praiano glow in the colours of the sun. We will return there soon.

I was very happy with the location, facilities and hospitality received during my week stay in Villino Blu. The villa was emaculate and there was nothing we lacked or needed. The owners stay close-by and their understanding of English made communicatiing very easy. I would happily recommend Villino Blu to my friends and I look forward to returning again in the not to distant future. Oh and I forgot to mention the view - Wow!

This property is amazing. We were 3 adults and there was plenty of space for us all. The views from the two Terraces was breath-taking, the service from the owners was great and the little shop up the road had all the provisions you need for a stay. We caught the Sita bus to Positano and to Amalfi, buy the tickets at the Tabacci before you get on. There were many good quality Restaurants within walking distance of the apartment. We dream about returning there one day.

Summer in Italy does PERFECT job for people who wants to travel and enjoy it!
The service is excellent in every way.The villa Villino Blu we stayed a week in was a perfect place as well as the beautiful village Praiano!
I think that all the villas that Summer in Italy offers are just perfect, because the pictures they show of Villino Blu at their website are just real and the villa looked even more impressive (if possible)in reality than on their website!
The owner met us in person and was very kind and helpful!
Our family can recommend the villa and Summer in Italy for every one and especially for demanding travellers!:)

Christine and I found Villino Blu to be everything we expected. Not only beautiful, everlooking the Med., but the people around us were very pleasant and accomodating. Suggest learning to use the bus to get to see the sights. Driving yourself can be a bit hectic and parking comes at very high premium. The house is beautiful with Air Conditioning in every room. Nothing like sitting out on the terrace early in the AM watching the sun come up and eating and good piece of Italian cheese and bread followed by a good glass of Italian wine!!! You got to love it!!!! Christine and Nino Maccagnan, Plantsville, Ct.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villino Blu and having a parking space is a bonus. It's an excellent villa in a beautiful setting, with stunning views of the ocean from the terraces. The villa is spotless and has everything you could wish for, including two spacious bathrooms, a fully equipped laundry and kitchen and there's also a barbecue on the terrace.
The owners are a lovely couple who are very friendly, helpful and make you feel welcome. When you arrive, they show you around the villa and explain how everything works and are nearby if you ever need assistance.
We loved Praiano with it's nice restaurants, quaint shops and the great guys who run the supermarket at the top of the hill. As it's all uphill it's pretty heavy on the legs so some people may prefer to drive around especially when visiting the beach.
We highly recommend Villino Blu and there's nothing nicer than sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine looking out over the beautiful ocean at sunset.
The service provided by Summer in Italy was excellent. Booking with them was so easy, they were very helpful and any queries we had were answered by them immediately.

We had an amazing vacation in Praiano. The villa overlooking the ocean was just breathtaking. And the sun was so bright. We loved wandering down the steep stone stairs through the fishing village to the hidden beaches and fishing boats, all the amazing neighborhood restaurants were welcoming and ended every meal with complimentary lemoncella, walking to the little markets for fresh veggies and great wine, shopping in the ceramic shops and watching the artists paint.... It was a once in a lifetime experience. All positive!

Landlords were very helpful and friendly. The unit was spotless and had a very well equipped kitchen and the best view you can imagine from your two private terraces. Located close to the bus stop, grocery stores and a pleasant walk (uphill on the way back) into the main village for dinner. This spot felt like a truly Italian experience as it was the only rental unit around. The availability to have a place to park your car was incredible but by far the best was the beautiful terraces after a long day of sightseeing.

We rented Villino Blu in September 08 as we were getting married in Praiano. The apartment is small and perfectly formed, situated just a short walk to the village of Praiano. It is also fantastic for the buses going along the amalfi coast and to and from Sorrento.
The apartment has all amenities you could need with a small kitchen upstairs and beautiful bedroom, shower room and utility room downstairs. There is also a small guest room downstairs. But the main attraction of this cute little apartment is the glorious veranda areas (there are 2).
The landlord and his beautiful wife were incredibly helpful and kind(even leaving work to drop off our passports when we realised we needed them at the registry office).
Highly recommend this apartment and the beautiful village of Praiano.
